Saddle West Hotel, Casino and RV Resort in Pahrump is the perfect getaway for relaxing and escaping the stress of the big city. Pahrump is located in the southeast corner of Nye County, 60 miles west of Las Vegas and 60 miles east of Death Valley.

From Las Vegas, travel west on Blue Diamond Road/State Route 160 through the Spring Mountains; then Northwest to 1220 S. Highway 160. (For GPS/mapping purposes, the zip code is 89048.)

Surrounded by beautiful courtyards, the hotel features 148 guest rooms and 10 suites, a Jacuzzi and outdoor pool and the Silver Spur Buffet and Café. The dog-friendly RV Park features over 80 pull-through spaces with full hook-ups and showers and 24-hour security.

The RV Park has been a favorite for many years with snowbirds and traveling enthusiasts. They offer daily, weekly and monthly rates with easy highway access and plenty of nearby shopping. Wi-Fi service is free for all hotel and RV guests. Rooms and the RV Park are located only steps away from the casino and restaurant, where they take pride in offering top-notch customer service.

The Silver Spur Buffet serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Cafe offers traditional American favorites, famous for their cheeseburger.

The 15,000-plus square-foot casino is open 24 hours and offers over 300 slot machines and electronic games, “No-Split Pot Bingo,” bonus play, point multipliers and daily promotions, and a William Hill sportsbook.

Play with your Saddle West Winners Club card and get rewarded daily, weekly and monthly with bonus play, gifts and free buffets. When playing slots, every $1 coin-in earns three points. For video poker and video keno, $1 coin-in earns one point. Two huncred points equal $1 in comp value and 1,000 points can be converted to $5 (minimum redemption) for free slot play.

Points can also be used for hotel stays, gift shop purchases and restaurant comps. One of the best options is to earn 300 points and use them for a breakfast or lunch comp buffet and you keep your earned points. Earn two vouchers (600 points) for the dinner buffet.

Every 300 points earns an additional buffet voucher and up to 14 can be collected daily. During December you can also “Earn & Bundle” vouchers that can also be turned in for cash. Two coupon vouchers equal $5; four equal $10, and seven equal  $20. Again, up to 14 can be earned per day.

For December, there is also a special “Buy-One-Get-One Free Buffet” offer (or 50% off one buffet) for cash and credit card paying customers, including Christmas Day!

Scenic destinations within a short drive from Pahrump include Death Valley, China Date Ranch, Amargosa Opera House, the Hot Springs of Tecopa, Pahrump Winery, Rhyolite Ghost Town and much more.
