I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were. it took a while to get checked in but the staff were nice. It was a couple of block walk down to the casino but we needed the exercise (there was a shuttle if the walk was too long). The casino was nice enough. I was worried

Hollywood Casino Hotel is Average at best, it reminds of a old hotel that needs updating. The fact that is not connected to the hotel is disappointing as well, but to be fair they do provide shuttle back and forth from casino to hotel and a free continental breakfast is a plus.

As I live close by , I have never stayed at Hollywood Casino however I gamble there quite often. The staff is friendly and the casino is kept very clean. My overall win/loss is pretty even but I don't spend a great deal. I always enjoy my time at Hollywood Casino.

No coffee maker, fridge or microwave in room. Very basic.
Could use a deep clean or replacement in a few places.

Does Hollywood have an indoor pool?
Thanks for the question. We removed our pool when we switched from Empress to Hollywood Casino about 6 years ago. We recently renovated the hotel rooms and we do offer junior suites with large jacuzzi tubs. Let me know if you have any other questions.

is the breakfast the normal hotel breakfast or is it at the casino buffet
the breakfast is great if you are on right day. they have bacon and really delicious breakfast burritos. one day they didn't have them and cook went out of there way to make us almost a whole pound of bacon and 6 breakfast burritos. very great people work there. there is ceraol, toast, sausage, eggs, fruit, bakery, coffee, juice, milk, tea, bagels gosh I can't think of everything they put out. but if you leave hungry it's your fault. they really go out of there way to make you happy. love every time I stay there. you would not be disappointed. patty
