Hollywood Casino Bangor Hotel
Ranked #15 of 26 Hotels in Bangor
Reviewed 13 February 2014

This hotel is connected to the casino.
It is a bit pricey, but always clean and the casino part is fun. I feel that it is worth the extra $40/night that you would save at another Bangor hotel.
: -)
The front desk staff are always pleasant.
Non smoking hotel and casino ... yay!
Easy parking in parking garage. (free)
There is a cafe downstairs downstairs with sandwiches, burgers, salads ... etc called the Take2snack bar. It is open until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning on weekends.
The hotel beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean.
It is a "green" hotel which drives my husband nuts (ha ha) so it takes a while for the lights to come on full ... and the heating-A/C system is "green" regulated and tricky.
All and all, a great place to stay!

Room Tip: I would not pay for a river view room ... the view is not worth the $$$ :-)

My wife and I stay here whenever we are in Bangor. Love the location, a nice walk to downtown and on the bank of the river beside the walking trail. Great rooms, friendly service. Great entertainment. The buffett is really good and at a great price to boot!

Room Tip: River view in the summer is peaceful and serene.....

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! I'm so happy to hear that you continue to enjoy your stays here with us! Look for the new restaurant, Celebrity Grille, opening late spring! Another tasty option to try while you are here!

I spent the night there recently for slightly over $100. Granted it was a weekday,with an outdoor windchill of below 0 F. So it's likely they didn't have a lot of business that week.

The room was far better than those I have gotten previously at the Bangor Hampton or Hilton, and I paid less! The room had such a lovely decor, natural, real-wood furniture -- beautifully appointed.

The staff person gave me a very quiet room, as I requested. She put me down the hall from others, on the 6th floor. I slept like a baby.

Recommend highly. Though if it were busier, who knows? May be more expensive and less quiet. But for me, that night, it was great.

We had a very nice stay in December. Only concern was inconsistent pricing of the rooms. Room rates varied from 109 to 252 per night depending if it was a travel website or hotel website and seemed to vary daily. I felt for Bangor Maine and at a casino the hotel prices were too high. We had 16 in our group and 10 of them stayed at another hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! Our rates do fluctuate based on occupancy, much like airlines vary their rates based on available seating. We do try to keep rate parody between our website and the travel agent websites we are contracted with. For future, when booking a group of over 10 rooms, please contact our sales manager for a group block.

Thank you!

Great hotel to stay!!! The location is perfect for us as we love that the casino is close. The snack bar in the Casino had good food. It's not full sit down restaurant, but still very convenient when you get in later at night and don't feel to go back out. The service was great. Rooms are big and beautiful. Very clean!!! We will be back.

Like a lot of visitors, the layout of the casino and hotel elevators confused us on our first visit a few years ago. And they confused us yet again on our second visit in November 2013.

The parking garage is huge and well lit but you really want to try and park as close to the elevator exit as possible because it's a long walk thru the parking garage and to the other side of the building if you don't plan it right.

My Mom booked us 2 rooms a few months in advance of our yearly shopping trip to Bangor (right after Canadian Thanksgiving, and well before the American Black Friday).

Our only complaint about the rooms is that you could not open the windows to let in fresh air, and we were too close to the elevator exit and could hear people getting on and off the elevator all night.

Otherwise (like on a previous stay away from the elevators) the rooms are well furnished and modern with big LCD TVs, and the King and Queen beds are always very comfortable.

For value VS. price this is my favorite place to stay in Bangor.

The only drawback to the location is you're 5-8 minutes driving on the i95/395 from the best shopping areas.

Room Tip: Ask if your room is close to the elevator, and if it is: get a different one.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. When making a reservation you can always request to be away from the elevator (or near the elevator if you choose). We do our best every morning to block these requests so that our guests are happy. As for shopping there are some small locally owned shops and restaurants closer to us than the mall area. Again, thank you for responding and next time please request to be far from the elevator and we will make it happen!

Thank You

I stayed here because of a business meeting nearby, so didn't gamble, although I went through the casino to eat at the restaurant inside. The rooms are very nicely decorated and updated. There is covered parking and a restaurant on the premises. I enjoyed the one night I was there. I would highly recommend, particularly if your destination is the casino!

Thank you so much for your review! We actually have two restaurants on site - The Epic Buffet open for lunch and dinner and the Snack Bar open for all three meal times. Also, in 2014 we will be opening another sit down restaurant! There is something for everyone here! We hope to see you again soon!
