“One of the most spacious casinos i have ever been in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

As i am a penn gaming player and this is one of the new hollywood casinos and i was in cleveland i thought i would check it out. As i played there and also the horseshoe in cleveland my experience is Ohio contracted the lowest payout possible for all the machines. i played various denomination and types of machines and never got over a 20-30 dollar hit I had no problem finding all of the video poker games available at the hollywood. The place was almost empty. What puzzles me is they built this huge casino and parking garage and NO hotel HUH? The layout was great with the most room between aisles as any casino i've ever been in and i've been in a lot. Ohio law does not let them comp alcololic beverages but they did have drink stations where the horseshoe in Cleveland does not. We ate at the scene restaurant which was good. On the whole i give the experience a B-

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Thankfully we were passing through Toledo anyway, but had we driven here just for the casino we would have been even more disappointed. The space is beautiful and well designed. It looks very inviting...but when we looked around, they had not one single game we enjoy. I don't understand the thinking in casinos that don't have a variety of video poker machines. Anytime you see them, they are always busy...yet so many casinos ignore them for mindless slots.

“Not fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Honestly my first time there could be my last. Went on a saturday morning, the casino was dead! Nice casino but takes your money. Machines do not win lost 160 in an hour that money should at least have lasted quite a few hours even betting at the lowest. Penny machines people!! Nothing was open early to get any snack. Pop machine and bathrooms in back.

“A little pricey for Toledo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

The no smoking ban is what makes this great. It's like Vegas without the smell. The buffet on the weekends is a little pricey. Not happy about not having $5 minimum blackjack, even Vegas offers that on quiet days. This is only Toledo after all.
