My husband & I love to try different casinos but had never been to the first one in our area, Mountaineer in WV. I read about the place on several sites & almost didn't go, as the reviews were usually bad. We went anyway to decide for ourselves. Joined the players club when we arrived - immediately got $15.00 free play (more than anywhere I've ever gone) & won $100. on the second play. We heard about it being too smoky, so headed for "non-smoking". That wasn't so good as it was very tiny, limited slots - so we tried the smoking section. Maybe because it was a friday morning, but it was not really terrible & we (non-smokers) stayed for hours with no problem. Ate in one of the restaurants (The Gatsby). Not cheap, but not terrible. Huge Ruben sandwich with coleslaw - $9.00 was pretty good - almost couldn't finish. Free coffee & soda in self-serve dispensers in the actual casino - no waiting on the girl or having to wait till she returns. Every employee was very nice, helpful & welcoming. We'll go back. Only 90 minutes away.
