Whisky Pete's has always been my pit stop on the way to Vegas. It's quiet, divey, cool, has clean bathrooms, and I can take a little break and play a few slots before I head to the Strip. I've stayed here before, and the rooms offer very little in accommodations, but it looks like they've done some remodeling. This might explain why the machines seem tighter and the dollar hot dogs and margaritas have gone away. Either way, it's still my go to pit stop in and out of town to avoid the crowds.
