As you walk in from the West parking garage you will immediately be smacked in the face with the stench of stale cigarette smoke. The facility is old but clean. There is supposedly a non smoking section I just never found any section that does not have the smokers stench. The staff has always been friendly and efficient. The dealers... More

It's been a long time since we went to a casino outside of our home state, Maryland. Of course, except for our trip to Vegas. It was nice to see some of the old machines that we loved to play still at Hollywood Casino, at Charles Town. Had to get used to the cigarette smoke and the funky drinking restrictions... More

My wife and I have been coming here for years, and I'm only reviewing it now to offer a comparison with the new MGM National Harbor casino where we spent two nights last month. The Hollywood casino seems much bigger and is certainly much more spacious and easier to navigate. My wife uses a walker or wheel chair while in... More

We attended a comedy event in the event center to see Frank Caliendo. Room was good. We were in the raised seating in the back. The screens help. Wish they were larger. Sound was great. Event staff was helpful. Parking easy. The casino was very smokey. Just walking through from parking to event center made our clothes smell of smoke.... More

I have been in several Las Vegas Casinos......none of them are as smokey as this one. Even the non-smoking area was fairly smokey. As the evening progressed, the amount of litter, empty glasses, napkins, hanging out at the slot machines increased which made things less pleasant. We had been miss-informed, and were very disappointed that none of the sit down... More

I am emailing management to complain. This evening I attended your casino in Ranson with my father. We first played at card table 431 prior to 9 PM. My father was teaching me how to play three card poker. He showed me the cards in order to teach me. The game rules enforcer as Christina choose to point out at... More

I have been to several shows and I have yet to be disappointed! Sara Evans was fantastic, 3 Dog Night put on a great show, 38 Special was wonderful! The only disadvantage is the seating. They are very close together, and the legs stick out front and back. I have seen many people trip over them. Also, it I sad... More

What a great time for any event or just to go with friends. Plan to stay up late and hopefully win money! The hotels are nearby and the shuttle runs every 15 to 20 mins.

Hotel rooms were large and quiet, full Breakfast was good. Showroom had padded seats, a great plus and show was outstanding! Gambling was only so so, no big winnings.

We went to the casino show venue to see Jay Leno. The venue seats are incredibly tight & close together with little leg room. I felt like the guy next to me was half on my seat. The sound was good but with little or no slope to the floor seats, it's hard to see if there are tall or... More
