Rostraver, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 29 December 2016 via mobile

Have visited this casino many times but they are now under new management. We'd heard that the Tuesday senior lunch buffet had gone up several dollars but it also has gone down in quality. Very few choices, especially in the healthy food department. We were very disappointed-certainly not worth the 150 mile round trip.

My wife and I have been to Mountaineer a few times for the day and never had an issue. This past weekend for Christmas we decided to get a room and stay the night. We checked in with no issues, went to play a few games and then went to dinner. Dinner was nice but the selections were a bit...

My husband and I stayed 1 night after a work Christmas party. We had a king room. The room was clean, very spacious, mattress was very comfortable. My only complaint was that the room smelled pretty strongly of smoke. I'm sure that is because the casino used to allow smoking and it is very difficult to rid an area of...

This hotel is great as long as you are lucky enough to get a room in the tower instead of the lodge. Lodge rooms are a very long walk and more like a cheap motel. However the tower rooms are more like a modern hotel. Both types of rooms are the same price but not of the same the quality.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We appreciate the feedback and will use the information provided to improve the overall experience for our guests. It is true that the hotel tower rooms are larger and there is an elevator as well for your convenience. However, the décor is very similar in either section. Consequently, the tower...
