Mountaineer Casino Resort & Race Track
The Mountaineer Casino's Grande Hotel affords more than 350 guest rooms adjacent to the casino, as well as a spa, fitness center, and indoor swimming area. Eight restaurants and five lounges are located throughout the complex and at the adjacent Mountaineer Racetrack. A theater, a convention center, and an 18-hole golf course are among the casino's chief non-gaming draws. Live thoroughbred horse racing at the Mountaineer track is scheduled weekly, Saturday through Tuesday.
The Mountaineer Casino Resort & Race Track is located on WV-2 along the Ohio River about four miles west of Chester, WV, and 30 miles north of Wheeling, WV. Less than a mile from the casino, Tomlinson Run State Park is a favorite natural getaway spot for resort visitors. The Homer Laughlin China Company, located in nearby Newell, WV, remains the sole producer of the highly collectible Fiesta Dinnerware.
