Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino
Travel Blogs from Primm
Our day of real estate browsing was followed by the stop at 'M' Casino and Spa described on our prior entry. Our late departure from Vegas left us at the stateline in the early evening. We grabbed a $19 hotel room at Whisky Pete's. The room turn out to be clean and fresh and worth every penny......
Oh, my what a day...Up fairly early after trying to decide what time we really were on...Left hotel a few minutes earlier than expected. Arrived at the Bullhead City Chamber of Commerce to set up for my presentation to the Arizona Chamber Executives Staff Training Conference. I gave a presentation on Customer Service in general and showed the "What …
Yesterday we got a splendid start to our Grand Tour USA. Before 10 a.m. we pulled out of the Thousand Trails gate at Acton, CA and set off across the High Desert. First we zipped along the Pearblossom Highway to I-15 North. A quick stop for gas at Barstow and then on through the the stark desert of Death Valley. The early pioneers of the last …
... lightning and some heavy rain. The rain drops here are huge, makes a plop sound as it hits your car. The storms just hung around, they were still hanging around at 6pm. Power was lost three times over a 30 minute period. A few people were a bit upset on the gaming floor. Had a quiet Mexican dinner and hit the sack ready to head to LA in the ...
... other side of the car where the round had lost oomph and just dented the metal out. Looking at all the holes I wonder how the cops didn't shoot each other in the process. I reckon it would be worth a few shekels these days. Due to our dick around when booking in we were provided a free buffet dinner for two. This obviously is not in the league of Wynn or Ceasars but was very reasonable and we left very contented. Lets see what tomorrow ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino Primm
NEVER STAY at Whiskey Pete's hotel. There was human body fluid stains on the chairs, the water smelled like sulfer and so did you after taking a shower, the bed sheets stank like I don't know what and the gaming was a pure loss. I did not see anyone win money at the tables or the slots there.
The rooms look nothing like what they picture on the web site and everything was old stained and burned with cigerettes. WHAT A DUMP !
I go to Vegas a lot and have never even stopped at stateline, this past Thursday I had a TOTALLY unexpected drive to Vegas and decided to stop at stateline to sleep instead of going on into Vegas that night.... I had no reservation, no previous knowledge of the prices or anything.... I just walked in and requested a room....the guy at the counter was friendly enough and put me in a huge room with 2 queen beds on the top floor and HELLO my rate was $25 BUCKS. WHAT?? It was past midnight on a Thursday night when I got there, but the were still charging week night rates,, cool. I was so happy I stopped, I did not eat or gamble at the casino, so I can not comment, but for a girl who is used to 1st class accomadations, I was very impressed for what I could get for 25 bucks. My room was clean, there was a coffee maker, tv, table, sitting area, and housekeeping were nice enough to bring me an iron and board & come back and get it. I wished there was roomservice, but hey,, whatever, it was only $25 bucks!
We stopped here on our way down to Southern CA. We arrived 7 pm on a Sat. evening after traveling all day. The kids were anxious to get in the pool. When I checked in at the counter, the staff member spoke to me very curtly. I was informed that the pool was closed, the hours were 10 am to 6 pm. I was really surprised a pool would close so early in the day. I was also trying to find out about somewhere to eat that had a family-type atmosphere. I felt the staff member was annoyed at my questions, as if she didn't have time. Our room was very dark and dingy. We turned all the lights on, but they were very dim lights, so I had a hard time reading much of anything. We chose to go down to the buffet. The price was not cheap, and the food was not good. We had several items that we tried, and then left on our plate because it didn't taste good. Of course, being a casino, you had to parade through all the slot machines with your children and luggage to get to the elevator.
I'm sorry to say that the rooms we stayed in were
We stayed here April 18-20 2004. The casino seems really closed in and dingy compared to the ones right across the 15. The room was really depressing - both bedspreads were torn, TV barely worked (few channels, bad reception) and remote control buttons so worn we couldn't tell which was the power, mute, etc. The bedside lamp didn't work - got it turned on once and then had to unplug it to get it to turn off. There were Cheetos and other debris under the bed (found this out when taking off the yucky bedspreads). The bathrooms were OK, shower was actually nice (water temp and pressure was great). No room service available, and no drinks served by the pool, both of which would have been great.
I stayed three nights and the first night was a room that we shared with my brother on the 14th floor the bathroom floor was filthy with spots of sticky stuff apparentyly it had not been mopped that was a Friday night then on Saturday and Sunday my husband and I stayed again with the Rehab and Wellness Party and again we were given a room on the 14th floor and the bathroom again with dirty, the shower had not been cleaned at all, a used shampoo bottle and soap were still in there and also alot of body hair there was also some broken glass which by the way I stepped on during the first nights stay. We had also requested a coffee maker, hair dryer, and iron for these days and we were never provided with this request. I'm sorry but it was not a pleasant stay at Whiskey Pete's and yes I did mention this to one of the housekeeping personnel on the 14th floor and all I was told was to complain at the front desk and so I did and the answer I was given was not one I expected to hear. I am the office manager for Rehab and Wellness Center of Delano and next year for our next trip I don't think we will be staying at Whiskey Pete's and I don't think I will have very good things to say about my stay there to anyone.

We stayed here on our return trip from California. We couldn't get a room in Vegas on a Friday night for less than 90 bucks, but at Whiskey Pete's we paid 35, for a room 3 times the size of the one we had in Vegas for the same price! After a week of California traffic, I was just as happy to stay in Primm, with its three properties. We took the monorail to Primm Valley for dinner and shopping at the outlet mall, and to see the Bonnie and Clyde car. We had breakfast in the coffee shop at Whiskey Pete's. The portions were great and the prices were excellent. I'm going to recommend to my California-bound friends that unless they are set on the Vegas experience, it's a lot better deal to stay in Primm. My only warning would be, gas up outside of Vegas at the Pilot if at all possible. Gas was running about 25 cents a gallon more in Primm than in Vegas and it made a big difference in filling up my van!
Our stay with Whiskey Pete's in Primm, Nevada was less than proper. What ever happened to "the Customer comes first" motto? Casino hotels and resorts is a business. Their business is to keep the customer happy so that they may one day be repeat customers. Our stay was less than happy. We were charged with a pay per view movie that we only got to see half of (due to a defective movie of which we the unknowing customer was expected to KNOW that it was defective). My spouse was ignored by the bartender for almost half an hour while he sat and played THEIR video slot games. Our feeling is that if the customer is willing to plunk down hundreds of their hard earned money into THAT business' slot machines, every accomodation should be made to the customer. Not accusing the customer of should have known the movie to be defective and then charging them for it.Needless to say, that will be our last visit to that UNFAIR city. They have lost good customers in us. All they had to do was have friendly smiles and good supervisory managerial skills. Big boys in Primm, ARE YOU HEARING ME?
Dinner at Whiskey Pete's
Drove from Las Vegas with family to have dinner at the casino. Great food including a sensational steak, great service, reasonable prices, and terrific gambling facilities. Well worth a trip down the highway and a relaxing comfortable place. Can't wait to get back.
Great Hotel and Casino
Reasonable, clean rooms, great staff, great restaurant, and the casino is a fun place to play.
Loose slots that let you play for a long time. Sometines you can even take some money home! Would rather stay at Whiskey Pete's then go into Las Vegas.
