Visited here in early December. The casino building is basically a boring square box. Not much thought went into its design. Although it is non smoking there are still smokers outside and you have to inhale second hand smoke upon entering. Once inside the slots payout nothing and are just as bad as turning stone. The employees here , just... More

Vernon Downs has built a whole new complex next to the race track. Hotel and casino are fantastic. Got a good price on their website and the casino was paying way better than turning stone. Also no smoking inside - Loved that.

Went to the casino while staying in the hotel, it was very small and no tables just machines. Very sad about that. Drinks were overpriced at the bad...$5 for a beer is insane even worse when it's old beer. (Boston Lager was old, tasted extremely bitter).

We stopped at Vernon Downs Casino recently and had an enjoyable time. We ate at Champions Buffet and thought that the food was very good. There was salad, soup, breads, hot entrees and a selection of wonderful desserts....something for everyone. We played the slots for a while and won a bit! Our only disappointment was that there are only slots... More

This is a small but well run casino in the Vernon Downs Hotel, which I've reviewed separately. Service was great, we made a few bucks in the slots, and it was a nice change to have live races a swift shuttle ride next door. The only thing lacking was table games which is what my husband is into, but for... More

Very quiet casino but make sure you eat before you get there the food is not worth it. The staff was very helpful.

Hi, Vernon Downs is not Vegas, a fancy resort, the Caribbean nor a place for "big spenders" It is a place to relax, have a decent meal, enjoy the pool and do a "little" gambling at the slot machines and spend time at the track. They give you a nice break from your work schedule. Understand this is not a... More

This is a low-end casino at a harness racetrack. A little run down. My biggest complaint is they keep sending me offers (Clambake, July 4th picnic, etc.) however when I call to confirm, they are ALWAYS booked. I've called to confirm these offers the second the offer hits my mailbox, and they are ALWAYS booked. Why bother to send them.... More
