What You'll Get
To remember the cardinal directions, school children often rely on the mnemonic phrase of Nonjacuzzied Establishments Simply Won't-do. Follow this helpful nugget of guidance with today's deal. For $99, you get your choice of the specialty-themed Jacuzzi, overnighters' calico West, or Western-themed getaway rooms, plus a $50 restaurant voucher at Bonnie Springs Ranch (up to a $215 total value). Situated in Blue Diamond, this scenic getaway is back-dropped by the stunning Red Rock Mountains, where Old West gunfights are a regular occurrence, horses await their riders, and saloon brawls end in hugs. You will have to pay the standard park rate to enter Bonnie Springs, and a refundable $100 damage and cleaning deposit is also required to book your room at the motel.
Instead of the cookie-cutter décor of a regular hotel, Bonnie Springs Ranch offers a variety of room themes, allowing guests to determine their own style. Lovebirds can experience the Far East in the Wild West with a Chinese-inspired room. Likewise, guests planning a role-playing retreat can live out their trail-traveling narrative on a Bonnie Springs bed that doubles as a covered wagon. No matter which theme you choose, your spacious retreat will include a luxurious Jacuzzi tub. If you're traveling with the whole pack, the overnighters' calico-West-themed rooms welcome children as well as pets.
Visitors can explore trails on horseback or simply stroke the fur of their animal friends at the neighboring ranch. While it may be tempting, riding the covered-wagon bed to town is unnecessary, as Old Nevada is steps away. In this throwback Western town, sweeties can hold hands as they watch simulated gunfights and hangings performed by the ready and willing stunt crew. With love and fake gunpowder lingering in the air, guests can slink out of the main strip and stop by the ranch's restaurant to dine in authentic 19th-century fashion, as all food appears in black and white. Call ahead to make your reservation.
City slickers beware: Bonnie Springs Ranch is a rustic detour off the strip, with opinions divided neatly between those who like roughing it and those who are rough on it. The Old West getaway corrals a four-star average from nine TripAdvisors and ten Insider Pagers, while nine Yelpers give it a 3.5 average. Yahoo! Travelers give it a three.
