The Nevada Landing Hotel & Casino was a hotel and casino designed to resemble two riverboats. It was located in Jean, Nevada, United States, near the California state line, within sight of Interstate 15. The hotel, owned by MGM Resorts International, had 303 rooms, four restaurants, over 800 slot machines (including video poker), live keno, table games, banquet facilities, and wedding services. The rooms featured air-conditioning, telephones, clock radios, private bathrooms, and televisions. The property was typically marketed with its sister hotel, the Gold Strike Hotel and Gambling Hall, located across the I-15 freeway.

History[edit]

The casino opened in 1989, built by a partnership that included David Belding, Mike Ensign and William Richardson. It was first owned by Gold Strike Resorts and in 1995 was sold to Circus Circus Enterprises. Circus Circus became Mandalay Resort Group in 1999, and in 2004 was acquired by MGM Mirage.[1]

In February 2007, MGM announced plans to close the casino on April 18 and build a master-planned community on the 166 acres (67 ha) it owned in the area, in a joint venture with American Nevada Corporation and the Cloobeck Companies. The community was to include "affordable" housing, commercial businesses, shops, and a new hotel-casino. The Gold Strike would remain open, at least until the new hotel-casino was completed.[2]

The casino closed a month earlier than planned on March 20, 2007.[3]

Demolition began on the hotel in early March 2008. By April, the hotel was no longer standing. The sign was demolished in 2010.
