My wife and I and another couple stayed at the Peppermill in West Wendover April8-11, 2008, booking our flight through MaxAir via our local newspaper. We had a lot of fun, the rooms were excellent, clean and very comfotable. Maid service the next day we excellent. Everyone at the casinos were very friendly and helpful. The buffets at each of the major casinos were good. The 3 casino's have a shuttle bus that runs 24/7, that picks you up in the front of the hotel and the wait for us was less than 5 minutes each time we used them. The 3 major casinos had lots of neon lights in them, not like most casinos we have visited in the past. The red garter was more like other casinos we have been to. The fourth casino, the Red Garter is close enough to walk to from the Rainbow Casino. All the slots seemed a bit tight compared to other casinos we have visited over the past 20+ years. We rented a car for one day at the only place in town, Hertz Car Rental located in the Montego Bay casino. If you want a rental car, make sure you call well in advance and call the Montego Bay casino direct, DO NOT USE the 1-800 number on the hertz.com web page. There are only 3 or 4 cars for the whole town and 2 were wrecked while we were there. My wife called the casino a about 2 weeks prior to departure and they didn't have our reservations we made with national Hertz rental car company. They told us you have to call them direct for a reservation. Our last day there was not too good. We were told to check-in our luggage for the return flight at the hotel desk between 5:45AM and 6:45AM. No one from the airlines showed up untill almost 7:00AM. They took us to the airport at 8:00AM so not much time to eat breakfast before we were headed to the aiport. Other than that little hitch we had a great time, and I personally don't think the Casino's had anything to do with that. I'm almost sure MaxAir employed the persons responsible for luggage pick-up.
About the only thing to see near West Wendover is the Bonniville Salt Flats, about 15 miles east of the city in Utah and a nice display at the airport about the Enola Gay during WWII. We went there while we had the rental car and it was interesting. Nice diplays and pictures from Wendovers hayday during WWII. Hope this helps someone.

Just got back home from spending 9 days at the Peppermill Casino and Hotel. What a great place to stay! Our hostess (Bobbi Madsen) is superb not to mention all the other great hosts and hostesses that are also wonderful. The only bad experience we had was my husband became ill during our stay.
I went to the local Grocery Store (Smiths) to speak to their pharmacist and received only rudeness. What an arrogant man who is the manager there. When I mentioned my experience to the locals, everyone knew who he was and were very anxious to get rid of him. He certainly doesn't represent Wendover well. Stay away from that place for sure!
Will not let this spoil future trips to Wendover. We plan to go back in the Fall and hopefully we will stay healthy. Love the PEPPERMILL and their STAFF.

I have been to the Peppermill 4 times and plan on going back in May. They are all great and treat you very good.

I'm mainly a blackjack player, and the table games/rules were pretty good. There are 4 main casinos in town, and 3 are run by the same company and look very similar. All 4 have the same rules for blackjack: Single deck (rare these days), dealer hits on soft 17, double on any 2 cards, can't double after split. I was there during mid-week and the limits were as low as $3, with many at $5-10. Most of the tables were closed since not that many people there mid-week, but you could almost always find an empty table or just one or two other people. Most of the dealers were friendly, and the cocktail waitresses came by pretty frequently.

They also have 3-card poker, Let it Ride, Pai Gow, and a couple kinds of Texas Hold-em with $5 limits. They had craps with as low as $3 limits with 10 times odds. Each place also had sports betting areas.

A shuttle takes you between the casinos that are spread over about a mile. It comes around every 15-20 minutes.

The food was a little expensive at the coffee shops, but the comps were generous so it didn't matter. (The same players card is good for all 3 of their casinos). All of the meals after the 1st evening were comped. They even had a separate amount available for just the gift shop, so basically a free souvenir. They also gave coupons for $5 off any meal & 2-for-one off at the steak-house. All places had a buffet and a coffee shop. Everything I ate was good. There is also a McDonalds & a Burger King right by the Rainbow & Peppermill casinos.

I came on Max Air which was a great deal. They fly a 737 which was OK, and the people running it were very nice & efficient. I stayed at the Peppermill and when you get there, they have your room keys, players card & some coupons ready. You just give them your name, they give you the stuff, & off you go. They deliver any luggage directly to your room within an hour or so.

I stayed at the Peppermill. The room was very nice - large, clean & well maintained. I was told by several people that the Montego Bay had the best rooms. I checked out the pools: Peppermill has none, Rainbow had an indoor pool which was OK, and Montego Bay had a great outdoor pool. It was by far the nicest with a spa, exercise room, music piped outside, many pool chairs & tables. My understanding is that if you stay at any of the 3 places, you can use any of the pools. As far as the casinos, I don't think it matters where you stay.

The airport is amusing. They have one airstrip and all of the buildings are pre-WW II. It was the home base for B-52's. Apparently the Enola Gay that dropped atomic bomb came from Wendover. You get off the plane & walk across the tarmac into an old building lined with chairs that has been fixed up to be the waiting area. From there you are shuttled to your hotel-casino which only takes a few minutes.

If you're not into gambling, there is not anything to do except lay by the pools or watch TV. There is a place that rents ATV's & horses if you're into that.

Overall, I had a great time & recommend Wendover for a short get-away. Good luck!

We had not visited Wendover before. I asked the adivse of the agent to decide on which hotel to stay at. She said they were all nice. I told her to make a choice for us.
The peppermill is just O.K., that is all. We traveled with 2 other couples. They were given rooms in the NEW portion of the hotel. Be sure to ask for the new section when booking. We were booked in the OLD section. It is in need of renovation, especially the bathrooms. I tipped the front desk staff 5 dollars, and we were moved. The room was newer, but had a funny smell all weekend. Nothing we couldn't stand.
We had a great time in Wendover. We talked to others on the Max Air flight. They said the place to stay is the Montego Bay. The Casino was Great. We spent Most of our time at the Montego Bay.
The Rainbow Casino was also nicer than the Peppermill. Others on the flight liked their room there too.
We enjoyed the buffet at the Montego Bay, and the Steak House at the Rainbow. The cafe at the Peppermill was horrid. The Peppermill seemed very tight with their slot payouts. The other Casinos let us win a bit. Just our humble opinion. Still a great deal, and a fun little town.

Went via MAX Air had a late start due to local airport personnel (Max gave us a 2 $50.00 vouchers on the flight back). Granted it doesn't compare to Vegas but was still a great trip. Similar to Laughlin.

Peppermill was very nice - some call it cheesy decor - but really not that bad - room was good sized and the comps rivaled any casino in Vegas - We are returning in May 2006 and are staying at the Rainbow this time. If you enjoy gaming and like having more money in your gaming budget this is the way to go!!

The airline was fine and what they advertised is what you got, no problems there but the Peppermill Casino needs to work on customer service! Also all the casinos look alike, very cheesy decor, mirrors, rope lighting and neon, something out of the 80s, Miami Vice kind of stuff. Food was average in taste and was expensive for casino type places, sandwich is $8.00. Nothing in Wendover but the casinos so if gambling is'nt your thing, don't bother. Myt over all rating is a C
