Located 40 miles southwest of the Vegas Strip on the California/Nevada state line, Whiskey Pete's Western-themed resort offers a casino, a showroom and a shuttle to the other Primm-area properties, which offer more entertainment options and amenities.It is the first hotel-casino California visitors pass on their way to Las Vegas and the last one they pass on their way home. Part of the Primm Valley trio of resorts at the Nevada/California state line, Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino has come a long way since beginning life as a two-pump gas station in the mid 1950s. Now boasting 777 rooms and some truly impressive neighbors, Whiskey Pete's has struck the motherlode.The 36,400-square-foot casino affords those California-bound travelers one last chance to make a run on the tables, while a couple of casual eateries (IHOP and McDonald's) and a full-service bar/lounge sate any desires that remain. The 700-seat showroom has played host to everyone from Crystal Gayle to Gallagher. And free shuttle service (as well as a monorail system that runs on weekends only) is available to Whiskey Pete's sister resorts -- the Primm Valley Resort & Casino and Buffalo Bill's -- just across Interstate 15, both featuring a wealth of must-see attractions and amenities.
