  • Mount Airy Resort Casino: Fine but don't expect Las Vegas

    Only Vegas is Vegas. Don't expect a Vegas experience and remember unlike AC, you can't simply walk from casino to casino if you are not hitting. Mt. Airy is a stand alone hotel in a scenic Pocono setting. Food is decent and fairly priced - especially the buffet.

    Video poker payout tables are lousy. My wife plays only slots and says Mohegan Sun at Pocono pays better. Staff is stiff, not nasty, but they seem not to understand that they are in a "people business". They should be trained by Vegas managers in being pro-active with customers and act like they actually care about whether a guest returns.

    Place is immaculate with a great smoking policy. Limited live entertainment. Access, parking, etc. are excellent. Machines are widely spaced allowing you to stretch out while playing. Piped in music is way too loud especially in light of what is clearly an older demographic.

    No free alcohol policy is a mistake. They fear drunk drivers leaving the casino and lawsuits coming back to the resort. Lame. Well behaved guests helps the overall pleasant atmosphere. Electronic Blackjack games until recently had (mostly) 15$ minimums - a mistake again as MS at Pocono has a room with plenty of $5 Electronic Blackjack games. Overall, a pleasant if unexceptional experience.
