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.
