Good Entertainment

The entertainment was good. I didn't like that you don't get complimentary drinks while playing video poker. I thought the machines were a little tight.

Although we are not big gamblers, we drove a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon to visit Hollywood. The weather was cloudy with rain so we thought "What the heck!" My wife and I each brought $100 to "play" with. I started out playing quarter poker slots and my cash dwindled downward. My wife started playing regular quarter slots.... More

I play craps all over the United States. If your are sensitive to smoke, stay away from this casino. The casino Smoking Area is not available near the craps tables.

Conveniently located to I-81, Hershey, and Harrisburg areas. Plenty of opportunities to lose your money gambling at the Casino or racetrack. We went there to enjoy the Friday night band and do a bit of dancing. The dance floor can get crowded. Drinks are reasonably priced, but you can even get water and soft drinks FREE at self-serve vending areas.... More

We have been to the Hollywood Casino three times. Friendly staff and many restaurants. Smoking is somewhat bothersome. Too many old slots. Enjoy horse races.

We couldn't believe how close it is to Hershey. Casino is lovely and offers all choices. Several excellent restaurants. We always try during each visit different one and never have been dissapointed.

The epic buffet was amazing with the best crabs I have tasted. I would most definitely recommend the trip based on the food itself. Casino was nice but no wins for us that night.

Smoke from smoking section is all throughout the casino. Really bothered me and I use to be a smoker. Machines are ok, nothing to write home about.

We had a good dinner overlooking the horse track. Casino is large and offers a no smoking area of slots. The smoke still spread through the whole place.
