My husband and I stayed here for a night after going to the casino. The first thing I noticed the moment we walked into the room was the smell. It was horrendous. Smelled exactly like stinky feet and was quite nauseating. Thankfully I NEVER stay in a hotel without Lysol. I'm assuming the smell comes from the stained carpet but...

If I could rate it a ZERO I would have! This place is TERRIBLE! They LOST (or gave away) my reservation for the Jacuzzi suite and never notified me until I called to confirm (good thing I did!) They had "no record" of that reservation, it was entered in their system as a "double bed room." They made NO effort...

We stayed with two younger kids and other than a decent pool, there's not much to do with kids. The arcade is a joke and the continental breakfast is toast and cereal. I know we stayed in the off season and on a holiday but I looked like the hotel is a bit worn down. The bathroom was the worst,...

We stayed over this past weekend and were very disappointed with the room and service. We checked in and went to the casino. We also took in a 50's Mystery Murder Theater which was mediocre at best. We did not return to our room until almost midnight. At that time we discovered there was very little toilet paper and very...

Stayed 2 nights midweek. My husband and I had a king room. Check in was easy and the staff was friendly. The property is nice, but this hotel and casino is an older property. Some areas are more updated, like the restaurant we ate at. The rooms are really spacious. The bed was comfy. The pillows were small and lumpy...

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...

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...
