Historical Traveler Reviews Buffalo Bill's Resort & Casino Primm
Unable to find a room at a reasonable price in Las Vegas, we turned to Primm/Stateline for accommodations. Although a bit unusual - based on reviews here on TripAdvisor, we booked a room. Whoa... $17.43 a night mid-week. We didn't quite know what to expect. Believe it or not, it's a great hotel! It's got about 1200 basic guest rooms (no frills), clean and safe. Four or so restaurants, one is a Tony Romas, a decent buffet ($7.95 for dinner) and a small 24 hour cafe. The casino was nice, had all the games you'd expect and more. Amazing array of slot machines and better payouts than any strip hotel. (If you play slots, look for a game right near the main doors called the STREAKER... staff tell me it pays out frequently and huge jackpots. I won 1200 nickles on it, myself). We drove only about 20 minutes north on I-15 to get to the strip, allow about 40 with traffic. Staff were friendly and attentive and the whole experience was fun. I'd DEFINATELY stay at Buffalo Bill's in the future. Everything you want... in the middle of nowhere.

Spent 3 nights for $15/night, 10/14 - 10/17. We were very much suprised at the quality of the rooms, the nice casino and the Primm area itself.
Large, clean room with pool or mountain views. Lots of choices for food and drink. Buffalo shaped pool, movie theaters, many arcades, and of course the roller coster, water ride and slingshoot ride for the kids.
Casino is an atrium with 30 foot ceiling, a western decore, with a monorail that connects you to the Fashion Mall, Primm Valley Resort and Whiskey Pete's. Excellent place for families to get 2 connecting rooms at a low price, or who wish to get their kids away from the adult flavor of LV, yet only a half hour drive to the strip.
Great value, relaxed enviroment.
The rooms are good sized, clean quiet, no smoke or other odors. The bathrooms are large. There are ice machines on all floors, and a large pool and Jacuzzi. The pool is beautiful, but unheated. However, the water was refreshing under the desert sun. There is a decent buffet, gift shop, a food court and other restaurants. The casino has all of the old favorite table games as well as some of the newer games including: three-card poker, let it ride, Spanish 21, pai gow, Caribbean stud, and a live poker room. There is a roller coaster, a log ride, an arcade, and a train that goes to two other casinos. Also, there is a large outlet mall that is connected to one of the other casinos. This place has all the quality of the Vegas strip for less than half the price. Also, you avoid the crowded bus station atmosphere.
My husband and I needed a reasonable priced hotel to stay over on a Saturday night (07/19/03). All the strip hotels were waaayyyy overpriced.
I booked our standard room at Buffalo Bills just a few days before arrving. The price was $60.00. We arrived after midnight and upon registering, found out that we could upgrade to their version of a suite for about $20.00 more.
The room was a very good size. Two, comfy,queen size beds, two televisions, a dining room table w/four chairs and two oversized chairs for relaxing. Bathroom was nothing exciting, but again clean (showerhead too low of you are over 5'5" tall).
The downside was the room was right outside the large drop on the rollercoaster......but they don't start the coaster going until around 9am or so.
Food at the 24 hour coffeeshop was excellent and you cannot beat the prices or the portions.
For a clean, affordable place to stay without the crowds or the strip......I would highly recommend this place and we will stay there again (and even try the other two resorts next door and across the street).
Always great service
I always stay at Buffalo bills hotel and casino, when going to Vegas. The staff is courteous, helpful
and efficient. I also can say that the hotel, casino, restaurants,
restrooms,and mall areas of Primm are also kept in very clean
condition. I would reccomend Buffalo Bills or Primm to any of my
friends or relitives without Question. I realize it's not "the strip"
but i feel like i can relax and enjoy my stay anytime im at Primm
P.S. I dont work there!
Checked in on 08/23/02 and was nice aand quick. Room was very clean and big. We also had a view of the Buffalo pool from our 14 floor room. Slots were not to lose but still did win abit. The restarant was excellent and they have other fast food places to eat if you are have kids. They also have a roller coaster and water ride. Eventhough there is a highway between 2 of the hotels you just jump on a tram and it takes you to the other hotels for free. We would stay here again next time on our way to L.A. or on the way back.
my stay at buffalo bill's was the most horrible i have experienced at a hotel. the room was free with a poromotional cupon i received because i always stay there but this time the room was nasty. the sheets had little black hairs the blanket was so old and nasty i didn't want to touch it. the bathroom wall paper was comming off and there was water spots under the sink (mildew) on the tile. the towels were sand paper and so thin they could tear, and smelled when they were wet. there were 2 lamps, one didn't work at all the other was off the electrical base. the people before me had left a opinion paper they leave to be filled out and it was still in the room. i did not call houskeeping because i think they know already that the quality of the rooms is bad. i spent a lot of money in the casino so i didn't think my "free room" was so free. the olny good to say is i was close to the casino.
I have stayed multiple occasions at Buffalo Bills and found the rooms to be comfortable and the people who work there very helpful. I have never had a bad experience at BB's. I prefer to stay at BB's then to go into Vegas, I feel I get the same quality and value as I would in Vegas, but for a lower price.
Very poor service
valet did not help 2 elderly women with their bags even after having been tipped for getting their car. the help in general was not particularily friendly nor helpful but this was astonishing!!!!!
Sleep in your car!
The help neither speaks or understands english. Trying to
get assistance is and was a nightmare.
No coffee for the room, the sheets didn't fit the bed (too small) and on the second day the room was never made up.

... and Seamus it was Mecca. The first thing we had to do was stop by The Big Store and start thinking about what Lego sets we would be purchasing. We eventually pulled them out and headed to Bionicle Blaster-our first ride of the day. Fun but lots of twirling. Next we hopped to our first roller coaster, Lego Technic Coaster. Seamus squealed the entire ride as we were in the front car and Max had his hands up! Off to the mini land area where we ...
Just another day at Primm 😊 When we realised football was at 12 here we watched that before shopping & swimming & at £21 who can blame us 😄 Had a little bet last night, $10 in a machine who could win most, see pics lol Michael lost 🙊 Michael had $5 on Rooney scoring and won $16 😊 Battery low though so keeping it short ...
... to packed campsites with around a hundred in, it was a bit creepy! We parked in a spot, and found out it was a self service campsite, so you paid for it by putting money in an envelope, which went into a metal container. Also above this, it warned of local dangers such as rattlesnakes and coyotes, but we glossed over and cooked our dinner and tucked in for the night. A few hours later, a toilet break was required, so with torch in hand I headed to the designated hut. On ...
All day we swam in the pool it had a lazy river and a hot tub it was the best. After that we went to see a circus called O the stage was water and it went dry in seconds it was cool. After that we got a taxi and went to see a light show in downtown Vegas. And then we ate some ribs they were the ...
... Petes roadhouse and it was packed. When I mean packed it is about 750M off the freeway and has two lanes from the roadhouse to the freeway. Both of these lanes where full, the freeway was at a crawl. I have seen this before, it is the Sunday mad rush from Vegas to LA. If your ever planning to drive from Vegas to LA don't do it on a Sunday. We had quite a ...
