(Victor Valley)– Whiskey Pete’s Hotel & Casino is sporting a brand new look thanks to an impressive $3.5 million investment by parent company Affinity Gaming to renovate the property. The effort, part of a company-wide initiative to update most of the 11 properties within its portfolio, is the first for Whiskey Pete’s since opening in 1973.
The renovations include the addition of new bathrooms, upgraded beds and carpeting, modern furnishings and appliances including refrigerators, flat screen TVs, and plug-ins for laptops, smartphones and other devices. The entire project, which included the remodeling of 243 standard rooms and four suites, took approximately 12 weeks.
An ode to the Primm Valley historical figure (the rumored bootlegger Pete MacIntyre), Whiskey Pete’s hotel has long been a favorite first stop gambling destination for millions of travelers heading to Las Vegas from Southern California. The hotel celebrates its namesake personality with entertaining ‘Old West’ memorabilia throughout the property and even features a display of the actual Bonnie & Clyde ‘death car’ for guests to explore during their stay.
“It was important for us to retain the beloved features and personality of the hotel that our frequent customers have come to love and this renovation is really a thank you to our loyal guests,” says Whiskey Pete’s General Manager Stuart Richey. “It’s exciting to be able to offer a modern-day look and feel and hope to continue creating memorable experiences for our guests for generations to come.”
