“Great half way point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

I have stayed here so many times over the years. Have a great time, great staff, great rooms, and the buffet is really good. I always look forward to my trips because I know where my time is going to be spent. I go from Montana to California and this is always my half way stay.

Everytime l have stayed at Cactus Petes, l feel pampered and relaxed, the service anywhere there is by far better then any other place lve stayed. Everytime l leave, l know l will return.
Sincerely
Ann Sirles :)

The hotel itself was pretty run down. Our room smelled a bit like smoke and our bath tub had a clogged drain. The pool and spa area were very nice and well kept. Dinner at the inhouse steak restaurant however, was amazing. The wait staff there are super friendly and very efficient. I felt so well taken care of, in fact, by most of the staff here that it really made up for the condition of the room. I'm not sure what to say about the casino itself, as I don't typically partake in gambling.

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

I always have a good time. Staff is always helpful and pleasant. The drinks keep coming all the time and the waitresses are the best. Rooms are remodeled and comfy! As for entertainment, if you don't like the music here go over to the Horse Shu, they have music too and a great Mex
