Small-Scale Casino, Fine for an Overnight
If you're in this part of NY State and looking for a spot to boondock for the night, this is not a bad choice. The lot is level and spacious. There is a large lawn, away from the parked cars, that was great for exercising the dog. There was strong cellular service for both Verizon and T-Mobile. If you like the trotters and you're there on race nights, again its a good stop. The casino itself is *very* small, offering only penny slots as far as I could determine. As for dining, there is a buffet and there is Mr. G's restaurant connected to the hotel: both of these are also small. If you're there on a weekend, be prepared to wait. Mr. G's had some good menu items, but the execution was kind of meh. Not a destination for a casino, but a fine night's stopover in the Utica / Rome area.

9/3/15 - Huge gravel lot.
Huge gravel parking area, very level and very quiet. When I checked in with security there were no limitations given on my stay, however, on day 3 someone asked about leaving the trailer during the day - I think they've had some bad experience with truckers dropping trailers for extended time. Otherwise, a very nice little slot casino to play in, horses to see and great location to see Fort Stanwick and other area attractions.
