Buffalo Bill's is a family-friendly hotel with plenty to keep both kids and parents happy. And let's face it, that's what we're all trying to do, right?It's also an affordable spot to stop if you want basic accommodations just outside Las Vegas. The hotel is located about 40 miles southwest of the Las Vegas Strip on the California/Nevada state line.Adults will enjoy a large casino and a race and sports book. There are even bilingual Spanish gaming tables.There's always an impressive entertainment lineup at the 6,500-seat Star of the Desert Arena and the Stage Bar showcases lounge acts in a smaller setting.Kids (and thrillseekers) can get their kicks at the nearby amusement area that includes the 85 mph Desperado roller coaster with a stomach-turning 225-foot drop. The Adventure Canyon log flume is a water ride that streams through Buffalo Bill's casino floor and the Attraction Zone Arcade has all the latest games. (Be aware that some of the rides are only open on weekends.)Kid or adult, who wouldn't love a buffalo-shaped swimming pool? Yep, Buffalo Bill's has one and we're quite sure it's one of a kind.A nearby outlet mall makes shopping fun for the whole family with stores including Neiman Marcus outlet, Gap outlet and Kate Spade outlet.If you're hungry, Buffalo Bill's has Denny's  for pancakes, bacon and eggs around the clock. The food court features Starbuck's coffee, La Salsa, Panda Express, Häagen-Dazs and McDonald's. Big eaters should make tracks for Miss Ashley's Boarding House Buffet. And don't miss Guillermo’s Cocina & Cantina for south-of-the-border favorites.

Much better!
PostedJuly 6, 2014
A lot of improvement has been done to the resort overall. Buffalo Bills is much better now and much needed maintenance has been performed which makes for a nicer resort. That being said there are a couple of things I would like to bring to your attention. I was at Buffalo Bill's yesterday, the 4th of July and while the wagon and hay bails in front of the hotel were cool, the area was covered in crusty old trash, not new trash, the area had not been picked up for weeks. This job does not take a lot of man hours and this small attention to detail makes a big difference in the overall experience and whether a customer will come back or not. On the 4th of July is when you want the resort running at 100%, attention to detail and a fully running park is one of the reasons the Primm resorts became a great destination resort rather than just a state line stopover. I love all the improvements that have been made and I can't wait to come back!

Silver Sevens Hotel & Casino has a bit of everything — except those illegal things that people seem to think permeate all of Las Vegas. Located east of the Strip, you can reach Silver Sevens from Flamingo Road. They even offer a free shuttle to and from the airport and the Strip. We’re not going to list the whole schedule, you can contact the front desk for that, but the point is you can get anywhere you need to go. But they still do all they can to keep you in the casino.In a courtyard at the center of the property is a lovely swimming pool to help you make the most of the city's sunny weather — AKA the fire in the sky that makes you dive into the pool for relief. And in what we like to call the “cooler” months, when the temperature dips below 60 and all the locals put on winter coats, the fitness center will keep you warm and in shape.If you’ve worked up an appetite at either the pool or fitness center, or you just feel like eating because you don’t need any other excuse than that, get a taste of what we in the U.S. like to consider world cuisines — like Italian, Chinese and Mexican along with American-style seafood and steaks — at the S7 Buffet. Open 24 hours, the The Sterling Spoon Café, which has a faux garden setting, serves everything from snacks to barbecue combination platters, T-bone steak dinners and baby back ribs. There are some wonderful graveyard specials as well. On Friday and Saturday nights, guests can also indulge in a more upscale steakhouse-style menu with fine spirits in The Back Room at The Sterling Spoon which is not nearly as creepy as it sounds.Like watching sports and/or using sports as a reason to not talk to anyone while you drink? At William Hill Race & Sports Book you can order beers and other cocktails from the nearby sports bar. And a second bar, the Corona Cantina, is situated near a stage in a lounge where you'll often find live entertainment. And if you are into talking to people, or at least love shouting “bingo” when you win and obscenities when you lose, play bingo in Silver Sevens’ state-of-the-art bingo room.Silver Sevens offers all the necessary modern hotel amenities while boasting an entertaining and affordable atmosphere — just a jaunt from the Las Vegas Strip. It may not be a hard six, but rolling sevens is nothing to feel bad about. (That’s a craps reference in case you didn’t know.)

We sometimes throw around the term “affordable.” But that doesn’t mean cheap. South Point is less expensive mainly because of its location. South of major hotels like Mandalay Bay, South Point is still on Las Vegas Boulevard, making it just a short car ride away from your favorite attractions. But South Point really makes use of its extra space with its chief attraction, the revered Equestrian Complex.Hosting riding and rodeo events year-round in a 4,600 seat arena with 1,200 climate-controlled horse stalls, the complex is sure to make equine aficionados feel right at home. And if you’re a seriously hardcore rodeo fan, you just might recognize the giant statue of local gaming maverick Benny Binion on horseback situated near the entry--a simple tribute to the man who brought the National Finals Rodeo to Las Vegas.Though the Equestrian Complex is the likely the biggest draw, South Point has plenty of entertainment for those who just think horses are pretty but don’t really want to get close enough to smell them. The hotel is home to a 16-screen movie theater, a fine bingo room and a 64-lane bowling center. And the Showroom at South Point features a variety of singers, bands and comedians. And, like practically every inch of South Point, those spots can all involve some drinks.It could be said that the casino floor is a really just a mall of bars. In fact, we’re actually going to say it. If you tried to get a shot and a beer at everyone one of them you’d probably get kicked out for drunkenly doing something stupid around the fourth one. So don’t try that. Pick a couple and have a fun night. The Malibu Bar and Island Bar serve up tropical spirits, while the Lobby Bar is a focal gathering point in the heart of the casino. The Silverado Lounge offers a classic, Old West ambiance with a wood-paneled bar and overstuffed chairs. By the race and sports book, the Del Mar Lounge is a great spot for a cold beer during the game, and the Grandview Lounge at the southern end of the casino has a "Cheers"-like vibe and often hosts dance bands on weekend nights. And be sure to get some food in you before you drink.Michael's, throughout its 20-year history, has won accolades for the excellent filet mignon, sirloin steak and seafood preparations. Meat lovers looking for a more casual setting with equally succulent cuts can try the Silverado Steakhouse or Primarily Prime Rib. Exotic cravings are filled with the freshly made pastas in Don Vito's and south-of-the-border favorites at Baja Miguel's. The Asian restaurant Zenshin serves the freshest sashimi, nigiri and sushi rolls -- including their Vegas-themed 777, Double Down Salmon and Jackpot Rolls.For quick ways to appease your hunger pangs in between hands of poker and other casino play, try the Coronado Café or the Garden Buffet, which offers six live cooking stations. The Del Mar Deli is a fabulous spot for New York-style soups, sandwiches and decadent desserts. Plus, the beloved Midwestern chain Steak 'n Shake, known for its "steakburgers" and hand-dipped shakes, opened its first Las Vegas location inside the South Point. Between the abundant food and drinks and all that space to let your horse run around and fetch sticks or whatever it is horses do that make them so entertaining, South Point is an equestrian’s dream. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun place to get dinner, hang out at a bar and do a little gambling away from the confines of the Strip. Plus it’s affordable. And we all know what that means -- more money for drinks.

Prominently positioned just west of Las Vegas Boulevard, this multi-colored beacon of a hotel is a close neighbor to all of the action on the Strip making it easy for guests to venture around Sin City, but from the wide variety of shows, bars and restaurants located within the hotel, you could easily find yourself staying on the property.Seamlessly integrating its Brazilian inspiration into every element of the hotel, the lively aesthetic of the brightly colored carpeting, signage and décor of the Rio will make it seem as if you've arrived in the middle Carnival season. And adding to the energetic environment is when the crowds amass for the prestigious World Series of Poker held every summer. If you're not here during poker's premiere event you can still enjoy gambling as the Rio has a sprawling casino floor with 1,200 slot machines and 80 different table games.Drawing in crowds year-round are the hotel's buffets -- The Carnival World Buffet and the Village Seafood Buffet. Off the two, the Village Seafood Buffet earns the greatest amount of praise. Just imagine loading your plate with unlimited lobster, crab legs, shrimp, sushi and other swimming selections, eating it all… and then doing it again. Drooling? That can become a reality. Both of these buffets are usually packed with patrons, so be prepared to wait, especially during any holiday weekend.If you are not hungry enough to attempt fitting the contents of the ocean into your belly but hungry enough to think about it, then we are sure that you will find a non-buffet restaurant to suit your needs with the selection that the Rio has to offer. Among the restaurants are Martorano's by the tough, tattooed Philadelphia chef Steve Martorano is a sure bet where rich, Italian-American favorites are served in excess; the All-American Bar & Grille where they are known for their dry-aged Angus beef; Pho Da Nang with exceptionally authentic Vietnamese cuisine; Buzio's Seafood Restaurant known for their fresh oysters; and there is the one-of-a-kind dim sum menu at KJ Dim Sum & Seafood Chinese Restaurant. For quicker bites, Hash House A Go Go has creatively prepared, oversized portions -- which include everything from breakfast and brunch to dinner items or you can grab a meal at the BK Whopper Bar or the Sports Deli, which situated near the six giant screens in the busy race and sports book.If you are looking to transform your dining experience into your nightlife experience, we know you'll love the succulent steak and one of the most striking views of Las Vegas at VooDoo Steak and Rooftop Nightclub, situated on the 50th and 51st floors of the resort's Masquerade Tower. And while you're up there, go ahead and check out the thrilling VooDoo Zip Line – a zip line ride, where guests soar more than 800 feet from the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub in the hotel's Masquerade Tower to the Ipanema Tower. The 70-second journey boasts stunning 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Strip and adds an element of daring excitement to any occasion.Whether or not you opt for a ride between the towers, you can either stay and party at the rooftop club until the Strip's neon tubes flicker off with the rise of the morning sun, or you could slip off and catch one of the hotel's in house shows. Penn & Teller, the quirky magic duo, have their own theater at the Rio, as do the hunky and ever-famed Chippendales dancers. The Crown Theater hosts an array of acts including comedian Eddie Griffin and there is the seductive topless revue "X Rocks," which showcases sexy dancers and steamy choreography to the soundtrack of heart-pounding rock songs. And when you get thirsty from all that you've done or from thinking about all that you're about to do, swing by the sexy Flirt Lounge in the lobby of the Chippendales Theatre or the high-tech I-Bar, where you can order drinks from a touch-screen computer built into your tabletop.Since this is Vegas, we know that there is a good chance that you will not be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed the morning (or afternoon) after a night out on the town. The best detox is to re-tox (well at least we think so). So grab a cold one and soak up the sun with an afternoon at the hotel's indulgent pool complex. With golden sand and cascading waterfalls, this complex inspired by the Brazilian paradise is a necessity. If sun and fun is not how you like to recover, opt instead for a day of pampering at the Rio Spa & Salon. Shops are found throughout the property including The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room, Fashion 101 and the Harley-Davidson store, shoppers can get their fix of retail therapy on the property, however, the resort provides shuttle service to and from Harrah's for those who want to venture out onto the Strip as well.

Boulder Station is a one-stop shop. Here you'll find everything you need under one roof: affordable rooms, gambling, dining, live entertainment, movies and bars.This off-Strip property is about seven miles from McCarran International Airport, near the corner of Boulder Highway and Desert Inn Road. It's conveniently located near U.S. 95, which offers easy access to other areas of Las Vegas especially downtown.Locals often come here to gamble at the nearly 3,000 slot and video poker machines. There's also a 300-seat race and sports book and a bingo hall.There's always something entertaining happening in the 750-seat Railhead, a venue that features live acts ranging from nationally known bands and comedians to local tribute artists.Boulder Station has a bar for just about any scene you might be into. Beer lovers can hit up the Brewers Bar for more than 12 different brews on tap. If premium cigars and top-shelf liquor is your thing, the Havana Cigar Bar & Lounge is for you. Kixx Bar has a little bit of everything – live music on weekends, an extensive martini menu, fine wines, margaritas and $2 beer and shot specials. And sports fans can enjoy happy hour specials and drinks while watching their favorite games at the Sports Bar.Maybe nightlife isn't your thing but you still want an evening out. Movie fans can catch a flick at the 11-screen Regal Cinemas. Plus, parents who want to some spend some time alone together can drop their children off at Kids Quest -- where they're guaranteed to have a blast in a professionally supervised setting.Everyone likes to eat and Boulder Station has a restaurant to satisfy every craving.
