“Less than exciting.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Had an ok time. Staff was friendly and helpful. Slots were not very profitable at all. Left quite a few dollars there! Bathrooms not the cleanest and buffet pricey . Friend had a free room, which was nice. Really wouldn't travel there for any other reason.

Had fun and the food was good. Did not do well at the slot machines, but i did enjoy myself watching and looking at all the things Wheeling Island had to offer. I plan on making a return trip soon......

The rooms and staff were extremely nice and people courteous and friendly. Rooms were spacious and clean and had nice amenities. Residential area surrounding the hotel was somewhat rundown and kind of sad, but we also walked over the suspension bridge into town and visited a few sights during the day. Everyone was very friendly. Wish they offered cruises on the river. (Or if they did, we weren't made aware of it). Variety of ages of guests, and the entertainment in the lounge areas was good. We enjoyed the buffet (especially the Friday seafood buffet).

We always have a good time when we go to Wheeling Island Casino. Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. Love the slot machines. Drinks are always free in the high limit room. It is never too crowded, you can always find a machine to play. Bells are always going off, someone is winning.

Rooms were pretty nice, except no tv remote. Employees were all friendly and helpful. Check in should be located downstairs, away from the casino, just because it would be easier with bringing in luggage. Love the casino although they need some updated slot machines. Buffet quality leaves something to be desired for the price. Love the soft drink self-service! Overall great weekend getaway!

This was our first visit. The area the casino is located in is kind of seedy but the facilities were beautiful. The slots paid well and had a good selection. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel rooms were obviously they don't switch out the creamers often because they separated in my coffee.

Drove down from Pittsburgh...checked right in (no line at check in counter!) nice big room comfortable beds (as always). played a few slots then headed for the buffet.
Had a good meal with a large selection of food. Played some more then went up to the room for a restful evening.
Had the breakfast buffet in the AM they have a nice custom omelette station and you can cook your own waffles..too much breakfast!!
Lost some more money then used in room check out to close out the stay.
We will be back!!
Nice trip as always
