Very nice handicap. room staff was very friendly. Slots didn't hit well but many to choose from. Dining is great. Nice getaway for a couple or a family. Very nice pool for everyone to use. Very clean and comfortable.

Haven't been there yet, but considering it for Kentucky Derby weekend of which a friend and I get together each year. We've been meeting for the last 4 years at Gulfstream and prior to that Tampa, Delaware Park, Harrington and this year something new. Hopefully, since I've never been there it will be an enjoyable trip !

I have been to the Mountaineer a number of times when I visit family in Beaver County, PA. It's an hour drive, but worth it. The casino is very large and very well-attended. Free soft drinks are available (self-serve) and cocktails are av ailable at the bar that is central to all the action or by roaming server. I only...

My husband and I stayed this weekend at Mountaineer. We had a free room with a king sized bed in the older part of the hotel. The room had recently been remodeled and looked modern and stylish. There was a coffee pot with coffee, safe, drinking glasses and you could add chocolate covered strawberries and champagne for a small fee...

We did a girl's weekend and had a great time. We all stayed in the lodge rooms, which weren't bad, but could use some updating. The bathtub/shower was clearly in need of an update and the heat in our room didn't seem to work very well, but it was tolerable. We had a quick dinner at the Mahogany Sports Bar...

This has been our place to go for our anniversary for the past 5 years and I never thought I would have had the service that we did today. They took the restaurant out and added it to the buffet area. We did not get the buffet we decided to get there amazing steak. Today the steak was far from...

I have reviewed Mountaineer Casino before but I have read so many negative reviews that I wanted to let people know about the positives. First of all, so many people complain about not winning.

Have visited this casino many times but they are now under new management. We'd heard that the Tuesday senior lunch buffet had gone up several dollars but it also has gone down in quality. Very few choices, especially in the healthy food department. We were very disappointed-certainly not worth the 150 mile round trip.
