Primm Valley Resorts (formerly known as Primadonna Resorts) is a hospitality company based in Nevada. The company owns three hotel/casinos along I-15 at the California state line in Primm, Nevada, United States. Primm Valley Resorts is a wholly owned subsidiary of Affinity Gaming.

The hotels are a popular stop on the drive between Las Vegas and California.

The various hotels are connected across I-15 by both a monorail and a defunct amusement train line.[1]


Logo used from 1990 to 1999 prior to the acquisition from MGM Grand Inc.

The hotels were built by Gary Primm and the Primm family at Stateline, Nevada, the informal name for the area. The family's history in the area is the reason why it received the official name of Primm, Nevada.

Logo used from 1999 to 2007 prior to the acquisition from Herbst Gaming. Currently used as a secondary logo.

Whiskey Pete's was the first of their hotels. The Primadonna Resort was the second hotel built, and it was later renamed as the Primm Valley Resort. These two hotels are connected by a single car monorail across the I-15. Buffalo Bill's was the third hotel built. Buffalo Bill's and Primm Valley Resort are connected by a larger train.

The Las Vegas Outlet Mall was added as a part of the Primadonna Resort in 1998.[2]

On March 1, 1999, MGM Grand Inc. acquired Primadonna Resorts in an all-stock transaction that had been announced on November 9, 1998.[3]

On October 31, 2006, MGM Mirage announced plans to sell Primm Valley Resorts to Herbst Gaming for $400 million. The proposed sale would not include the Primm Valley Golf Club.[4] The sale closed on April 10, 2007.
