If you are thinking about a road trip, you might want to head to Whiskey Pete's.

The hotel and casino in Primm (only about 45 minutes from Las Vegas) has a brand-new look thanks to an impressive $3.5 million investment by their parent company, Affinity Gaming.

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.

Restaurants at Whiskey Pete's include Qdoba Mexican Grill, IHOP, Subway and McDonald's. There is also a Starbucks coffee shop and DQ/Orange Julius.

Whiskey Pete's, which opened in 1977, is named after a gas station owner and rumored bootlegger named Pete MacIntyre. You can find quite a bit of Old West memorabilia throughout the property, including the actual Bonnie & Clyde "death car."
