We stayed in Oak Brook for business & took the train into Aurora one evening for dinner & was told we should try out the casino. It was only a short walk from the train station to the casino. The casino was clean, drinks were good & I walked away with a little more cash than I started with. WooHoo!

I enjoy myself at Hollywood Casino Aurora. I also, enjoy the benefits of the rewards programs. I love the Wednesdays in September because seniors receive meals for 1/2 price.

I visited here on my recent trip to Chicago. The last time I was here they still had the boat that went out on the water. Now they have a barge that is much larger. The place really looks nice and the table games were fun. I would recommend to anyone in the area.

Very clean, employees very helpful and nice. Disliked the smoking part.....maybe that could be moved to just 1 location on the floor.

By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you! Overall a quick trip to the casino. They offer a great steak house and buffet. It's only open on Wednesday - Sundays. Won a couple of jackpots. Seen a lot of winners/hand pays. Overall staff was great.

Casino was not as flashy as most. Not that crowded and tables were open. Drinks were high priced and the only thing free is the popcorn. I played black jack and had a dealer named Christine. She was awesome and she had the best hands I've ever seen. She's a Capricorn and she brought me luck. She's easy to spot,... More

The Good: Food at Fairbanks - Bands on the weekends - Security - Some of the Blackjack dealers - Machine Attendants - Cleanliness - Free Valet parking with a Marquee card. The Bad - Buffet Food - Some of the Blackjack dealers - Both smoking areas are filthy. The Ugly - Drink pricing. $4.50 - $5.00 Bottled Beers. Really?

We enjoyed a nice freshly cooked lunch and a casual clean gaming afternoon. Lots of 1 cent 2 cent and nickel slots. No problem getting a machine or a place at the blackjack table on a weekday afternoon. Plenty of free beverages too. We used the handicap valet but other times parked in the garage. A very good time was... More
