Station Casinos Inc. today announced a franchise agreement to bring the Days Inn hotel brand to the Wild Wild West Gambling Hall on Tropicana Avenue west of Interstate 15 in Las Vegas.
The property will be rebranded as Days Inn - Las Vegas at Wild Wild West Gambling Hall. Room rates start at $39.99 a night, Station said.
The property has a truck stop, 260 rooms and suites; a 24-hour Denny’s restaurant; a pool area and a casino offering table games, a sports book and more than 200 slot and video poker machines.
Days Inn is a Wyndham Worldwide brand. Wyndham also markets properties in Las Vegas under the Travelodge, Super 8, Howard Johnson and Microtel brands. Wyndham is also a big timeshare operator in Las Vegas.
The former Days Inn at 707 Fremont St. in downtown Las Vegas is now a Motel 6.
Terms of today's deal weren't disclosed.
The Wild Wild West deal includes participation in the Wyndham Rewards loyalty program, which Station called the largest loyalty program in the lodging industry based on the number of participating hotels.
The hotel staff will remain Station Casinos' employees.
“Aligning with Days Inn, a well-established and respected hotel brand, provides the Wild Wild West property an amazing opportunity to draw in guests who have an affinity for staying at a Days Inn location wherever and whenever they travel,” Kevin Kelley, chief operating officer of Station Casinos, said in a statement.
