We had a bad experience in 2 visits last year, so were expecting the downhill slide to continue. But we were pleasantly surprised. The room was much cleaner than during last years visits. We received the trackside rooms that we requested. We enjoyed wandering in the new herb/vegetable garden behind the hotel, facing the track. Thanks to management for making... More

I had originally gone to Turning Stone casino to gamble. The next day, I was going back home but, I had heard there was another casino about 15 minutes from Turning Stone so I was "curious" and I hated going home not checking this out first so I decided to take a ride over there and see the difference from...

Vernon Downs hosts world class harness racing and has an awesome, but small, casino...always welcomed like a VIP! The rooms are large, clean and everything you want...The triple 7's Café certainly delivers as does their buffet. What's better than heading downstairs to bet on the ponies, having a few beers, and then spending your winnings in the "racino"?...nothing

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
