Food was amazing

The epic buffet was amazing with the best crabs I have tasted. I would most definitely recommend the trip based on the food itself. Casino was nice but no wins for us that night.

We couldn't believe how close it is to Hershey. Casino is lovely and offers all choices. Several excellent restaurants. We always try during each visit different one and never have been dissapointed.

Smoke from smoking section is all throughout the casino. Really bothered me and I use to be a smoker. Machines are ok, nothing to write home about.

We had a good dinner overlooking the horse track. Casino is large and offers a no smoking area of slots. The smoke still spread through the whole place.

Lots of slots, and a few tables. Horse racing also. Inside the Casino they have a smokers section and a nonsmoking section. The smoking section isn't really that bad either. I love their address 777 Hollywood Blvd. Parking was easy even though it was a Saturday night as they have a large garage with two entrances into the casino. Very... More

I made the mistake of going here on a Friday night and I knew better because I had been here on a Friday before but it was my only night in town. The problem with Friday nights here is that they have a band playing and they turn up the sound so loud that it is distorted to the point... More

Our travel club went here the other day. We had two buses going. My one complaint is there was only one greeter to take care of our large group. By doing this many of our group complained of the long wait to get our comp that it took away from their time to gamble. I was the bus captain of... More

I have been to dozens of Casino's around the world and would rate this an average one. Smoke is still a problem here but understanding their market it is something you will have to live with unfortunately. The band playing at the "H" bar was average if not below average and for a Friday night that is not good. The... More

Went there for something to do since there is no much to do in the area . They offer both slots and tables. One drawback is you have to walk through smoking section to get to nonsmoking.

We went to eat dinner at the buffet restaurant. It was horrible. The fish and shrimp were both over cooked. The fried chicken was pathetic. The only good thing was the waitress was very nice. Never again. A waste of money.
