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.
