We received a deal for a room for $44 for 1 night. When we checked in, Simon, at the desk heard this and gave us a top floor room facing the track (nice touch!). The room was very clean and fresh (I always notice when a room smells clean!) The room was nicely stocked and detailed, we appreciate that. My... More

The casino was fun and food was adequate but the hotel rooms had very dated decor and old beat up furniture and the rooms were dirty. Dust and toenails...yes folks had the toenails of previous guests in our room. The bed was old and uncomfortable and the pillows were about the size of a piece of paper. I'm surprised there... More

"And they are making their way around the bend, number 6 is in the lead...but..wait folks....number 5 takes the lead....and, wow what a finish!" That is the rating out of 10 I would give my first experience here at Vernon Downs. As you can tell, I did enjoy the horse racing and to be fair, the service from all staff... More

The 2 times my husband and I stayed at this hotel we found it adequate. Upon our 3rd stay we decided to upgrade to the Honeymoon Suite with Jacuzzi, as it was our anniversary. We were very excited to watch the horses from our room. The first 2 times we stayed they weren't running, but the track view was nice... More

Very disappointing. Hotel was old and somewhat shabby with lumpy beds and antiquated fixtures. Tub was so small, my husband could barely fit in it to take a shower. The bathroom sink was so small, it looked like it should have been in a camper rather than a hotel room. Buffet breakfast was lousy and it wasn't free either. Overall,... More

PLUS: great hotel for its completely non-smoking status and friendly check-in staff. Fairly good beds. Microwave and refrigerator are a fantastic plus!! Good, and FREE, internet. MINUS: The couches in rooms need to be replaced --BADLY and immediately. As do the chairs that go with the small table. Last time I sat on one, it was as if there was... More

You walk in and find a lovely fire going in the main lobby. My friend and I stayed Tuesday night. The girl checking us in: total clueless jackarse. The lady who checked us out: total sweetheart....big contrast! We were up on the 6th floor. Room is cozy and spacious. Very comfy beds. I was concerned being right across from the... More

After coming down the night before a close friends wedding, we arrived to find our reservation had been screwed up & the CSR at the desk was all excuses about how hard it is to schedule rooms while the other one helping her decipher the note section was eating potato chips and licking off her fingers.

Bed was OK room was nice, but the view was priceless, haven't tried the food there so can't comment on that. Casino was nice not as smokey as the turning stone would visit more often for that plus. Machines dont pay as well.
