Always a fun time at Cactus Petes! comped rooms are always very nice. Food is usually good, Prime Rib in the buffet is amazing. Management is always there if you need them and will make sure to take care of you if you have a problem during your stay.

We had stayed here years ago and it was ok. Food was not great. This time, however, the new buffet was fabulous, but the room? OH MY! The first thing was a cracker crumb dead center on top of the duvet, toothpaste splatter on the bathroom mirror, greasy fingerprint/thumb prints on the side mirror in the bathroom. Called housekeeping and...

I can't believe the positive reviews for this hotel. It needs a rebuild, not facelift, a rebuild.This may have been a nice hotel 50 years ago but not now. Are these reviews for real? Even a year ago we were there for a weekend, had a nice room, clean and the food was good. The room this time had faded...

Lots of slots and the buffet is really nice. All casinos are in walking distance which makes it nice so you don't worry about drinking and driving. They do have shuttles if you like. The best part, I think, is the self service soda and coffee bars. Really handy before heading home to fill your coffee mug. Very thoughtful.

My wife and i stopped at the hotel on way throught from reno My time would have been more relaxing if there hadn't have been 6 unsupervised kids under the age of ten using it to swim and slash each other in the hot tube. The casino need a non smoking section for the non smoking guests.

If you want somewhere to stay other than Cactus Petes, the Horshoe Hotel is a great place. a little dated in furnishings but TV is good, beds are great and the pool is close and relaxing. Very reasonable and away from the big casino.

It's a pretty nice place. Nice casino and some good food too. It's worth playing into the night, that's when we eventually got lucky. Don't depend on many drinks though, not enough ladies to keep up with the crowds.

On the road again, traveling from ID to CA, we stopped at Cactus Pete's in Jackpot, NV and spent the night. We stayed in the Granite room level and surprised how very modern, clean and comfortable our room was.
