“Nice Hotel, Mediocre Casino, Sub-Par Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

My husband and I stopped at Mount Airy for two nights this week. The hotel was very nice - new, attractive, and clean. However, since there are a lot of hotels that meet those criteria, I need to briefly review the entire experience. The casino has a few new slot machines such as Ghost Busters and Alice in Wonderland but I suspect that I played on some of these same machines in Atlantic City 25 years ago. A sign out front states that new slots are coming - I certainly hope so. And I'm sure the casino has a non-smoking section but you could have fooled me. An interesting bar sits in the center of the gaming floor but I didn't see anywhere that you could just stop and have a quiet drink. There were quite a few emloyees on the floor dispensing alcohol, but I prefer to buy my drinks because I often don't remain in one location very long, and the wine was resonably price.

The first night we grabbed a quick sandwich at Betty's. Mine was a dry salmon burger that came on a humongous roll with a thin slice of onion, tomato, and chewy lettuce. There was also tartar sauce and some fries. The next night we ate at the buffet where the food was limited and luke warm. The last time I ate at a buffet with similiar selections I drove by a few days later and it was closed. Probably the high point of the entire trip was when I pulled out of the driveway at 7 AM and saw a bear run across the street. I won't be returning, but if you go, the casino gets crowded when the buses start to roll in.

“Business Outing/Fundraising Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

On August 24, 2013 Scranton Preparatory School had an outing at Mount Airy for our major donors. The Day consisted of Golf and Spa activities and ended with dinner for 70 people.
The day was perfect. Everyone was extremely helpful from the golf course personnel , to the spa and banquet chef. The dinner was Buffet style and it was excellent. The customer service was outstanding!

I have been involved in planning events for years at Prep. This was a very easy one for me because of all of the support and assistance I received from Mount Airy.

I would recommend Mount Airy to anyone.

“Smaller than others”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My wife was disappointed there was no shops. It's smaller than other PA casinos. Good variety of penny slots, if that's what you're into.

“No shuttle service was available and no handicapped parking when I was there. I have been there a few times and I am continually”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

A busy Saturday night and there are no bus shuttles!?!?!? At least Mohegan Sun has them continually. Unfortunately the show was at Mt Airy instead.
I leave other casinos with more money than I brought--on occasions. This has never happened at Mt. Airy.
