This is the first time I have visited since the remodel and name change. I think it is way more appealing now. The restaurants smelled amazing. We will be back to dine soon. The games were pretty standard. Towards the halfway point of walking through the boat the air becomes stagnant and doesn't circulate as well in the back. Made playing in that section a little uncomfortable. Other than that it was a nice visit.

Went here post Reception for a wedding. We all were gambling. I walked up next to my friend and pointed down at a ticket next to his feet. Assuming that it was his. He said, "not its mine." as he picked up the ticket. It was $215 slot print out. He cashes it in splitting it with me. Of course I go and lose the money back to the casino. An hour and a half to 2 hours later I get approached by security claiming that ticket was the casinos property and made us pay back the $215. Caddy if you ask me.

The casino in it self was nice. The staff was not friendly at all. I played for 4 hours enjoy my next to me slot person. The staff in the other hand would pass me by and not ask if I needed anything to drink, and I'm a pretty good tipper.

I actually came here specifically to play poker, unfortunately they closed down their poker room. This was a bummer for us but the place itself is pretty nice otherwise so as long as poker isn't your thing you will probably have a good time. Hotel is nothing too special but I'm not too picky so was fine for me.

The casino itself is great, a little bit of everything and plenty of places to eat & drink. Very clean and modern from what I can tell. The prices are very reasonable compared to a casino in a major city. The staff there seems very professional and friendly from my experiences. Overall no real complaints, I just wish the layout was a little better. I don't mind exercise, but if you forget anything in your car, you'll spend 15 minutes walking back to it from inside. Anyway, overall very pleased.

Buffet is great. 5 stars. I had a terrible time on the slots. I don't mind losing, but I want to be entertained. Played penny slots, everyone around me getting all the bonus games. $60 in one sitting on the same machine, no bonus game whatsoever, ate that money in less than 10 minutes.

They stopped having all you could eat crab leg buffets on Fridays. Instead it was southern soul food buffet. And we didn't want to pay $35 a person for things like fried chicken, mashed potatos, soup... etc It just didn't seem worth it. That was a major bummer to me and my family as crab is our favorite seafood. Though, the staff was really friendly and let us look at the available food so we could make up our minds. Then they suggested a good alternative place to eat. The food isn't what it used to be, but the employees are happy to help.

I don't know how they can keep the doors open and have the tight slots they have. I haven't been here in well over a year and I frequently go to other Hollywood Casinos around the country. By far this one is the worst still. Don't count on winning here this is just a money Dumper in my opinion. The food still is well under par and the place is starting to look a little out of date for my standards. This location is permanently off my list for sure. I don't need to just throw my money away here. I don't need there cheap gifts to try and lure me back in. I've got many high roller friends in the area and now I'll take there word that this location has become even a bigger rip off for gaming. And it was so hot and muggy inside I had to leave with my 1000.00 still in my pocket. Goodluck Hollywood.

I love this casino, it's one of my favorites...... Edit... I came back today to enjoy the casino but first I walked to the side to see the river, as many times as I've been here i had no idea it was there so i figured i take a peek real quick then head on in. When a man popped out the side door telling me that it was employees only. I said that i only wanted to look at the river real quick then I'd be done but he was having none of it. Couldn't even suggest a place i could go to look at it that was away from the employee section. I'm very disappointed, needless to say I didn't go in after getting turned away. What a waste of a good view, keeping customers from enjoying it 😔

The only bad thing I can say about this place is one employee. I may not spell her name right but here goes. Astaria was at the front desk. We walked in and I told her we were about twenty minutes early. Before I could add we paid extra for early check in, she looked at the clock and said you are way too early. Quite rudely, because we were interrupting her flirting with the man who was already there. You can't check in til 4. I said we paid for early check in. She didn't even look up our reservation. So we went over to the seating area and waited for the twenty minutes. We were then called back to the front desk by another woman. Karen was amazing. So friendly and helpful. The young lady who sets up the breakfast in the mornings is also so friendly. Clean rooms. The room we had the air conditioner didn't work well at all. We were too warm. the dial wouldn't go below 70. With a hot tub in the room, it get warm. So you will need the a/c. Aside from the one, every employee was so happy and smiling. If you get a chance to eat at the Final Cut Steak house, do it. The food was amazing and if you leave hungry, that's your own fault. haha. We will go back there again. We won't let one bad egg ruin a whole place for us.
