The Grand Hotel was very nice - large well appointed rooms, clean, and quiet. We had a great view of the track. The casino was amazing -- the...

Stayed at Mountaineer with a free night promotion. It was wonderfully relaxing. It was so convenient to have a pool, casino, and restaurants all on the same property. Park your car and you can just relax until you head out the next day. We will definitely be back!

If you can't get a room in the main building. -- decline the offer of the annex. Hallway to room had musty odor. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Mold was growing in corners of tub. Clorox will take care of that. No added conveniences in the small room. Room offered no sound barriers -- be prepared to hear noise...

I stayed on the 6 th floor of the hotel. The room was very nice, clean, spacious and quiet, which I had requested. The price was lower than a brand name hotel closer to my destination by a few miles, so I thought I would try this hotel. I didn't use the casino or the pools, but for those who...

Bathtub faucet dripped excessively after taking a shower, Hardware of bathtub seemed old. Friendly staff and nice casino. Sandwiches in Big Al's were large enough to feed 2 people.
