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!

This casino is in a beautiful setting. Easy to get to off 81. Grantville exit. They have horse racing. Lots of slot machines. Game tables also. Some great places to eat. There is a buffet, and a steak house. And a food court. Soda stations around so you can get your own sodas. Always have fun promotions. They also have... More

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. Casinos in MD and DC are smoke free as they have smoking areas that are completely separated. The PA rules on indoor smoking do little to protect the public from... More

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.
