“Honey moon ... well 4 years later =)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This was our first night at the hotel it was great! everyone vary friendly the only reason we are not rating 5 stars is we did have a couple things in our room that was not working, We stay in the suit with the whirlpool and the TV in the bathroom didn't work and there was a light out in the bathroom the smoke detector started beeping in the middle of the night the battery was dying, We ate at the buffet and the restaurant they were both good places to eat. there flies that was nasty I don't want flies flying around the casino . This is the closest casino to us we live in Boise and it was close enough to get away its about 2.5 hour drive. We will stay here again

We have stayed at Cactus Petes seven or eight times this year -- all great stays. Only 2.5 -- 3 hour drive from Boise. The casino is a bit smoky, but what casino isn't ?
We have stayed at their hotel across the street (Horse Shu) from the main casino -- not too bad -- basic rooms, quiet, comfortable -- nice 24 hour hot tub and seasonal pool.
Our last several times we stayed in the tower -- very nice and modern -- updated rooms -- great large flat screen tv in all rooms. Great 24 hour hot tub and excellent seasonal pool. Very friendly staff, nice midweek offers with players card, decent selection of machines, poker room, and table games, self serve soda machines. It would be nice to win a little more, but thats how it usually goes. We will be back again soon.

Room Tip: better prices midweek

There isn't much to do in Jackpot, but Cactus Petes is a great place to stay. The rooms have plenty of space and the beds are good, It was also very quiet in the rooms. Went to the dinner buffet which had a selection to make anyone have a full belly, The staff there is great and friendly. It seemed that Cactus Petes is more a a regional casino and hotel with a lot of the people there from the area. By far the best place in Jackpot.

This casino/hotel was a very pleasant experience! If tripadvisor had a higher rating than 5.....like 10 that's what I'd rate this facility! All of the staff was beyond helpful and gracious....the best I've ever experienced at any resort facility.....really!
