Short visits are Ok. Nothing to do there except gamble or watch the horse races when they are running. Eat somewhere else before or after you leave. Their food is not very good but expensive. They do have good bands in on Fridays and Saturdays...More

Since we were traveling to Baltimore from New York State, we decided to spend some time Saturday night at the Hollywood Casino. Plenty of slots for my wife; table games a little costly for me. Tried the dinner buffet which was expensive but good.

Stopped at this casino for first time and signed up for their players club cards. Received free slot play and played slots for your and a half and had a great time. Very nice casino with great customer service.

We are not big gamblers, but on our quest for fun in the winter we found ourselves for a weekend of fun with some friends. The horse racing was fun. If you have never bet on horses be aware that there is a learning curve...More

This would be a nice facility but the smoke smell is overwhelming. And not just in the smoking area but throughout the casino. We will never return.

The casino have friendly and knowledgeable staff. I have read that the smoke is overwhelming, well, as a nonsmoker, I could hardly notice that smoking is allowed unless you walk into the smoking area. I will return!

What a busy place. Parking lot was nearly full. There is a good variety of slot machines. Also, a couple non smoking areas, but when I walked into the casino, the smoky smell was terrible. They need better ventilation. That's my only complaint.

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.

Thanks everyone for helping with the bus question. Has anyone gone by themselves for just a few hours? I have to kill some time - my friend works there - but will be alone for a while. I suppose I could do slots or watch the races. I'm a woman alone so just wondering.

I have gone many times by myself and had no problems. Of course they like you to gamble, but they have numerous dining options where you can spend time. The races don't start till 6 so that isn't an option for a daytime... More
