Based on the reviews we figured while we were at Turning Stone to give some of our money to Vernon Downs. The distance was very easy from ts and will always be a stop when in the area. It was kind of dark and unexciting...More

The hotel is clean and food good! Staff is so friendly! Machines do pay here! Drinks are not overpriced and menu prices are great! I've stopped going to all other casinos because none of them compare to the fun I have here!
