The Ho’s unworthy suitor

With real estate values skyrocketing on the Strip, those holding land there are in the catbird seat. But the sale of the Westward Ho, a small casino near Circus Circus that also has an Industrial Road property, the Ho, has been complicated. It seems that someone has been stringing the Ho along. I’m not making this up.

From the LV Sun:

Westward Ho owners are now in negotiations to sell the north-Strip casino to another undisclosed buyer, though the deal will likely be delayed until the lawsuit is resolved.

The Westward Ho opened in 1965 and has about 700 hotel rooms. It is located on the west side of Las Vegas Boulevard, north of the Stardust and south of the Slots-A-Fun and Circus Circus, across the Strip from the Riviera. The ‘Ho, as it is popularly known, also has frontage on Industrial Road.

Tracy Suttles, a residential developer based in Texas, filed suit in Clark County District Court against Westward Ho Properties LLC in June. He also failed in a previous attempt to buy the property in 2003.

Westward Ho owners claim Suttles filed suit to block the sale of the property to a third party. In the suit, the owners paint Suttles as an untrustworthy investor who strung them along.
