Hollywood Casino

Hollywood casinoWe recently visited the Hollywood Casino located just outside of Grantville, Pennsylvania near the town of Hershey. This is the place where Hershey makes all of their chocolates. The Casino is at the racetrack just off of Interstate 81 and about 10 miles from Hershey. There are several hotels to stay at in the area including a Hampton Inn which is very nice, clean and offering a hot breakfast in the morning. The Hollywood Casino dies not have a hotel associated with it. Hershey offers the famous chocolate factory,  outlet mall for shopping and a tourist area for going on rides etc as part of the overall experience of visiting the area. For travelers, this is a good stopping point that offers a number of things to do including hotel, restaurants, and entertainment.

Hollywood Casino – Overview

This is a large casino with approximately 2400 slot machines, table games, at least 4 restaurants, and several bars. They also have the horse races if you are interested in that sport with a beautiful dining area to sit and watch the races.  There is lots of surface parking as well as a covered garage.

Hollywood Casino – Restaurants and Bars

There is a small bar on the main level which is not very attractive as far as bars go and the prices for drinks at the bar are more expensive than if you just buy a drink from one of the servers who are roaming the floor. The buffet is ok, however we wound the food a bit bland and not well presented. Basically it was untidy. They also serve wine from a box which we declined. The restaurant and sports bar upstairs is better and offers a good selection of food. We had the rib dinner and a plate of Nachos. They were both excellent and the nachos were more than fully loaded.

 The Slot Machines

They have over 2400 slot machines and a number of table games. We did not find that the machines were paying and they did not seem to have the standard machines we look for. There is lots of selection so we are sure you find something you will enjoy. They could have more poker machines and more keno machines to suit our tastes.

We probably will return there sometime in the future if we are traveling through the area.
