Charles Town Hollywood Casino and Raceway
Pros: Frequent payouts, top notch staff, exciting overall atmosphere
Cons: Expensive food, can be smoky
Google Reviews: 4.0 out of 5 stars
We’ve recently added a trip to the incredible Hollywood Casino in Charles Town, West Virginia due to the raving reviews we’ve been hearing. They did not disappoint!
Many of the people we take get back on the bus with more money than when they left and an ear-to-ear grin to match. The Hollywood Casino is known for its entertaining theme as well as its rewarding slot play, a combination that makes for an incredible casino trip.
The exciting environment is bright and vivid, featuring comfortably spaced slots and gaming tables perfect for enjoying your day.
The only two complaints are that food can be more expensive than usual and that if you aren’t a smoker, sometimes the smell from the smoking section can waft into the non-smoking section. Overall though, these complaints aren’t very consistent.
If you’d love to spend a day enjoying the east coast’s very own Hollywood and winning at the slots, the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town is the place for you! We take a bus out to the Hollywood Casino once a month, and we’d love for you to join us! Learn more and reserve your seat today!
