“Cactus Pete's is my favorite place to escape from reality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

After all the stresses of everyday life, a trip to Cactus Pete's is just what I need to unwind, let my hair down, relax and have a good time. The entire staff, from the first people you meet at the registration desk, to the housekeeping staff, the cocktail waitresses, the restaurant staff, security, etc., all go out of their way to make sure you are having a good time. I just wish I could go more often than I am able to right now.

Room Tip: I prefer staying in the Granite Range rooms. It's not as far to walk to the elevator, and almos...

Great time at Cactus Petes. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The staff is excellent. Always friendly and helpful. The buffet was equally awesome with a wide range of salads, entrees, and desserts. I definately recommend Cactus Petes.

Cactus Pete's is our favorite destination to kick back and relax. The rooms are reasonably priced, clean, well-appointed, and quite. The casino has everything that a gamer would like. The pool and golf course are well kept and typically not crowded. The entertainment covers various genres and is reasonably priced. And lastly, the buffet is well stocked, delicious, inexpensive, and often complimentary. In short, my wife and I really love this place. We wish it were closer to our home.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Tower and in the Granite Range have recently been updated. So one can't go wrong s...

We stay there about twice a year and have always had a very nice room, people at the front desk are very pleasant and helpful. The room is spacious as well as the bathroom. We always look forward to our stay there.

The best place to eat is at Cactus Pete's. Their buffet is better than anywhere I have been in Nevada or Idaho including Las Vegas. The employees are helpful and friendly. You are always treated as if you are really special. Excellent entertainment as the shows are top notch. Good bands out in the Casino on the week-ends. Love playing the slots with a huge variety to choose from. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. My favorite place to stay is Cactus Pete's.

Room Tip: Rooms that are pool side have the best view.

We have been staying at Cactus Pete's for the past 19 years and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The rooms are immaculate, the bathrooms well stocked with new linens plus the linens on the beds are of the highest quality. The staff make us feel so comfortable and the food is like home cooked meals. We have recommended Cactus Pete's to many of our friends and they too wouldn't stay anywhere else. We look forward to each and every visit!

Room Tip: We have stayed in every area of the hotel and there are no "bad"rooms. The new renovations...

The rooms at Cactus Pete's are great, particularly the recently remodeled Granite Range (3 story building) and make a nice stop for travelers. The casino has all the games you would expect, but is otherwise sub-par by Vegas standards, especially the air (non) filtration system. The Horseshoe is another story however. It's old, the rooms small and badly in need of renovation, or better still, demolition.
