We stopped at this casino while visiting the Syracuse area. We enjoy casinos. Very nice casino. Clean. Enjoyed playing the slots. Lots of penny slots available. Lot of the games we used to have in our local casino. Snow globes, rawhide. We hadnt been here in a few years. Able to use same card as Tioga Downs (sister casinos).

We have never stayed at the hotel, but have gone to play slots at the casino many times. Pay-out varies. Some days good, some not so good. Don't eat at the buffet in the casino. It's pretty awful. We would come more often to this casino if it had a decent buffet like other casinos have. At least smoking is... More

This was one of the more cost effective hotels in the area. We stayed over for business, and had a fun night playing slots. I was a little disappointed there were no card dealers, but everything was clean and there were a ton of slots to choose from.

Although it is identified as a "casino," this is a slots-only gambling hall. The most appealing feature though is that it is a totally smoke-free casino. We happened upon it by chance and were able to spend an hour so there feeding a few dollars into the slots. The place was clean and wasn't crowded when we were there. If... More

This casino is very small but its smoke free and clean. Not so many people so no waiting in line at machines or cashier. On Friday night they had a band singing county music. The drinks are cheap.

The casino is located within a harness horse racing facility. The casino is clean, plenty of slots, loud and fun. My sister needed to get a reward card from the customer service desk. The young man she spoke with was less than pleasant to her and became annoyed when she asked questions about the card. Considering the older clientele I... More

Vernon Downs was a pleasant surprise. We were there years ago and found that it has been considerably remodeled/upgraded since then. There was a good variety of machines. Video Poker used to be different; the machines are like regular IGT machines now. Bonuses on the slots seem to come with regularity. We did not eat there so I cannot say... More

I love the atmosphere here - better than Yellow Brick Road - it's larger than YBR, less of a bar crowd, decent food (I've only done the cafe-like place where you can get hot dogs, burgers - service there is not the greatest but it's not a sit down place). The casino is usually clean - they have my favorite... More
