Our 2nd night on the road - last night in Nevada

Woke up, as usual around 4am, but did manage to go back to sleep – yay! After coffee and breakfast, we headed out again. I guess it was about 8:20am. The weather is still a bit unsettled, but only light showers and cloud cover. On this part of the trip, the scenery doesn't change much. We went by Winnemucca, Battle Mountain, and Elko. Our …

We hit the Jackpot

What a day

Left Dave's at 9 a.m. Under cloudy skies and along the way hit a bit of rain.

We drove 463 miles and drove down Hwy 93 the loneliest highway in America. We would literally not see anyone or another car for many miles. Vast expanses of mountains and valleys seemed to go forever without see homes or people. We saw …

Sleeping with the Big Boys

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 …

More desert

After a good nights rest, we headed more Nevada desert. But, again if they can find water, or maybe they buy it, they can irrigate and every once in a while we would see green fields or golden fields that had just been harvested. But they only way anything can grow is by irrigation.

We happened upon the California Trail ...

On the loneliest road

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 ...

    Good for an overnight stay

    We stayed in the RV Park, which is located behind the casino. It's within walking distance of the casino, but there is a shuttle if someone doesn't want to walk. The wifi was very spotty. Pretty decent place, and a good price. The Casino itself is your average casino. No non-smoking sections :-(

    Historical Traveler Reviews Cactus Petes Resort Casino Jackpot

    Great

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    Great fun and happy times at Cactus Pete's

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.
