We made a quick trip to Hollywood Casino 9-10 March 2013 and was unable to be accomodated at the Hampton Inn (my favorite now). The Inn was also booked, but they recommended the Turf Motel. If you have ever been in the area, you will recognize it for the life sized horse statue atop the portico. For $105 per nite, we were provided a 2-bedroom apartment. There were separate bedrooms, very comfortable beds, sparkling clean remodeled bathroom along with a large living room with table, two comfortable upholstered chairs, frig, microwave and coffeemaker. The sheets were clean and crisp. Located on the first floor of the annex across the parking lot from the lobby, we anticipated a very noisy night ahead when we arrived around 4 p.m., as there were several young males hanging out on the balcony in the apartment above drinking beer. We took the complimentary shuttle to the casino and returned around 9 p.m. for dinner in the hotel's restaurant. I was amazed at the quality of the food. Crab cakes are a specialty and on that particular night, crab soup in a bread bowl was a special. It was fabulous and the bread bowl was out of this world (I ate it!). I asked if the bread was baked in-house and the waitress told me their breads were made by a local baker and brought in daily. Along with a crisp green salad with great homemade blue cheese dressing, it was a memorable meal. My companion ordered the rib dinner and he was very pleased. The total was less than $30! We will never have dinner at the casino again!
We returned to our room and never heard a sound from above or elsewhere all evening. A home cooked breakfast is provided beginning at 8 a.m., but we had checked out by that time.
It isn't the Hampton Inn, but is an older family owned facility that has been remodeled many times. We will definitely not hesitate to stay there again.
All in all, it was an amazing deal for a Saturday night. Clean, basic, very spacious, slightly outdated, but had every thing we needed.
Need to mention the large TV in the front room couldn't get a 'signal', but there were working TV's in each of the bedrooms. We traveled there for the casino...not TV anyway. We didn't bother calling about it.
