Crossing the border into Nevada we realized with the first billboard that we were entering the land of gambling and sexy women offered 24-7. The billboard told us "Get off now" and featured a girl in a bikini. That was our first clue. Last night we slept with the Big Boys in Jackpot, Nevada. After driving for hours through sagebrush …
... They do a very good job of explaining where the California Trail and the Oregon Trail were. Outside they had shown the trails on the sidewalk. I have to admit I had not heard of the California Trail. You hear a lot about the Oregon Trail. They were the same trail in some places, then they would split and go separate ways. A lot of it ...
We woke up to the beautiful sunshine in Twin Falls and stopped at the Shoshone canyon falls. Which was a great way to trek out of Idaho... into Nevadaland, full casinos and lonely roads. Thank goodness for Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson pandora stations. Stopped at a pleasant grocery store in Elko for sandwiches and ...
... br> On another trip through this area I want to stop at the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center and Regional Museum in Baker City. One of the downsides of these late season trips south is that you are always worried about the weather and trying to get south before it turns. Also some of the places you would like to visit are open short hours or only seasonally.
As we cross the stateline into Idaho near Ontario ID we encounter the Snake River ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cactus Petes Resort Casino Jackpot
Our trip and stay was excellent. The front desk, the room, the casino people all were great to us. I was our 40th Wedding Anniversary, we received gifts, the lounge band sang to my wife and I, it was excellent time and excellent service.
Not so impressed
I agree with a previous reviewer - the smell of smoke in the Cactus Pete rooms does ruin the stay. They don't offer non-smoking suites - so what's the incentive to spend more money for a room that stinks? During our last visit - Spring of 2003 - we noticed several things: not nearly as many players in the casino, and those playing didn't seem to win as often as in the past. In fact, during the three days we were there I saw only one Jackpot payoff - quite different than on previous trips.
Also noticed that since Cactus Pete got their new manager they don't offer very many deals, and the ones they do promote are not that great compared to what's been available in the past. All in all, we've decided not to visit Cactus Pete's again until things improve.
Very nice, will use again!
people were friendly, rooms were very clean and quiet. We will stay at cactus pete's again on future visits.
Very smokey! Dog feces in grass everywhree!
Very smokey casino. Front desk was so busy and we were checked in very late. The room was ok, but had a smoke stink to it. In the grass along the hotel pathways are full of dog feces!!! Gross, gross, gross!
Especially when you step in it.
Smoke, smoke, smoke
The tower room was fine except that EVERYTHING was saturated with the smell of cigarette smoke. It's in the hallway, in the room, in the draperies, in the carpet. And the windows in the tower don't open so there's no way to lessen the smell of smoke. Next time, I will stay in the Garden Wing, where the windows open for more air circulation.
Garden rooms are more expensive, but well worth it.
World of its own!
The most relaxing and rewarding two days I have had in a long time.
Will most assuredly return for future visits. Room was clean and well maintained. Pool was just wonderful. Did not have to leave the hotel everything is right there. If you need it just ask and they provide.
My husband and I stayed the 4th of July weekend at Cactus Pete's. We booked the hot tub room (it is literally a hot tub, not a jacuzzi--so don't expect jets!). But the room was fantastic, very clean and comfortable and spacious, with a bar and huge bathroom. We enjoyed ourselves so much mostly because of the people that work there. They have $3 Blackjack, which allowed us to play for hours on end, and free Heinekin(!) Both kept us well entertained! We tipped our friendly waitresses well, and had a great time with all the hilarious dealers, welcoming pit bosses and great variety of players. Cactus Pete's must have figured out that keeping their employees happy keeps guests happy, and we had a wonderful time. The pool was beautiful, and they even had a GREAT firework display on the 4th. Great way to get away (but not too far from Boise) for a mini-celebration.
Best Rooms In Jackpot
Cactus Petes has the nicest rooms in Jackpot. It's may seem a little pricey, but compared to the strip in Vegas or other comparable 4 star hotels. Cactus Petes is a good deal. I recommend upgrading to one of the suites. It's money well spent if you spend any amount of time in your room besides sleeping. Horseshu is a good alternative for those who are more thrifty. The jacuzzi suites are nice there too!
Show and dinner
The entertainment a Tribute to John Lennon was great. A very talented group, especially the singer. Too, the food was very tasty and the waitress very friendly and accomodating.I would also like to commend the Casino employees, all very accomodiating, friendly and polite. The atmosphere is great.
Pet rooms, more freedom
We are really restricted in our travels by having our two "eskies" along for the ride. We were very happy to find Cactus Pete's had pet rooms for the boys. I can enjoy the casino while the husband and kids walk around, sniff out goodies....and then we can all sleep in the same clean room. The trip would not be possible at all if we couldn't take our pets.
