“A real gem!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Cactus Pete's in little old Jackpot is a real gem. The casino and the rooms are comparable to any "very good" property on the Vegas Strip. Clean, friendly and continually updated... this is a class act where you'd least expect it. Lots of new slots every year, and there are always $5 min. table games and a busy poker room. We also enjoy the buffet and they have a very nice pool. Their Mexican restaurant across the street, Pancho Villa's, is as good as I've found anywhere. Cactus Pete's is a great value proposition. Price, quality, service and size. They do it right.

Room Tip: We like the tower rooms facing north, so there's shade in the afternoon and a nice view of the p...

We were going to stay at one of the cheaper hotels. Talked my sister, meeting us from Idaho, into staying here after reading reviews of other hotels. So happy we did. Saw a cheaper rate online they were offering and they honored it plus 10% off for AAA. Room not ready when got there but we decided to stay in rm w/ 2 queen beds and sis took king, husband 6ft. Rooms clean smelled clean. Beds comfy. Good dinner at mexican resturant next door. in room coffee and hotel coffe not to good, bring your own. Went to check out, played one slot and won enough to pay for room:))) Got home forgot phone charger. Called sucurity and 3 hrs later Bedford Brown of securtiy called and had found and they are SENDING it to me. Doesn't get better for a one night stay. Best of all got to sis and hubby for one day and night of fun.

Room Tip: Mountain view nice. Top floors quiet. Park in back. If go to pool take drinks in plastic. Bring own...

We were given the choice between having a room in "The Towers" or the newly remodelled "Granite Range"...we chose the first just because it was $20 less, but we are going back at the end of November & I went ahead & made the reservation for the Granite Range room just because I was curious to see the difference. We loved The Tower room...and am excited to go back to see how in the world the Granite Range room could possibly be better (I'll have to let you know!)
Check-in was quick & easy, the room & bathroom was very clean, the bed & pillows were very comfortable, the room was quiet...we were extremely pleased.

We needed to destress and a break from the everyday. We also needed a Vegas type "fix" as its been a while. Cactus Petes in Jackpot Nevada delivered the Royal Flush!
It has the feel of a Vegas Casino. It is large. There are many, many slots and tables. There are a lot of new slots as well.The staff is very friendly.The buffet on Friday night was worth every penny @$21.99. The food was very very good.The rooms were larger than most, the tv was a flat screen with a good picture.
We had a blast the three nights we spent there. We even made a few big hits on the machines.
I will be back.......it was worth the 14 hour drive!
Enjoy!

Stopped Looked on internet for a Jackpot hotel and was confused about the Horseshu / Cactus Pete;s rooms. Trip Advisor set us straight and we decided to pay the extra money for rooms at Cactus Pete;s. Glad we did. Good casino and nice room.. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Everytihing from a Pizza Hut to a steakhouse.

My husband and I enjoy going to Cactus Petes Resort Casino. It gives us time to "relax" and enjoy the amenities that are need after working in stress filled jobs. The staff is great, friendly and ready to make our stay outstanding. It is a 3 hour drive for us, but it is worth every mile. The machines pay well, the tables are great and the food, well the food is fabulous. The buffet has everything that the palate could savor.

Thank you Cactus Petes Resort Casino
