Review of Whiskey Pete’s Hotel and Casino

One of three connected properties in Primm, Nevada, Whiskey Pete’s is a hotel and casino that first opened its doors in 1977. The historic resort is known for its casual, relaxed atmosphere, hospitality, and entertainment.

The three properties are linked, which means that guests at the hotel and casino are able to make use of the facilities on the other properties as well. Travel between them is made convenient by trams and a monorail.

In addition to comfortable accommodation and a well-stocked casino, the resort also offers various dining options, a sports book, golf, live music concerts, and a state of the art 3D amusement ride.
