The Wild Wild West Gambling Hall & Hotel hotel and casino is owned and operated by Station Casinos in Paradise, Nevada. While the casino and adjoining 260 room hotel are rather small, the site is over 58 acres (23 ha)[2] in size.

The Wild Wild West Plaza is located in the parking area and provides services common to a convenience store.

History[edit]

After starting out as the King 8 Hotel, it was renamed the Wild Wild West Gambling Hall & Hotel after Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide sold its partial ownership on July 6, 1998.

In 2005 Station Casinos started purchasing land next to the property it already owned. While no specific plans have been announced, it is widely expected that this move means that a major redevelopment is planned at this location.

According to an article in Forbes, the site has evolved to nearly 1/2-square-mile or 110 acres (45 ha) at a cost of $335 million. With a working title of Viva, the three casino, hotel condo arena project would wind up costing $10 billion.[3]

Stations Casinos reached an agreement with Days Inn on December 9, 2009, to market the casino hotel under the Days Inn brand. The hotel will be marketed as the Days Inn - Las Vegas at Wild Wild West Gambling Hall. As part of the negotiations, the rooms were remodeled to bring them up to Days Inn standards.[4][5]
