Getting late in the day we booked into this motel just to get somewhere to sleep. Although our cheapest accommodation, in hindsight we should have paid a little more for a better motel. The noise of the air con plus the noise of the traffic meant than none of us had a good nights sleep. We also felt that it... More

Husband and I took a quick trip to Laughlin. We decided to stay in Bullhead City to avoid the casino hotels as we were looking for something a little more quiet. Well, quiet we got but that is about it. The Asian lady who checked us in was very very nice. The room, well I don't know where to start.... More

Worst experience in my life!!! After relocation in 2006 we stayed there during labor day weekend. Had to go to office to pay telephone deposit and the manager went psycho on me. I was polite and honest to him when I made the reservation months ahead, and I was polite/honest when I went to the office that day. He literally... More

We love this motel! The rooms are cleaned whenever we ask them to. There is never an up charge for service here. They have direct TV as well and the shower has a nice high water pressure. Perfect located near a bar and restaurant across the street this motel has everything you need including super fast reliable High speed internet.

Stopped in for a room on a Saturday afternoon. The room was not to greatest and needs some painting and new carpet, but it was clean enough. The staff were very friendly-mostly the owner was very talkative. They did not make us stick to the set check in or out time. Pool was freshly painted and felt wonderful. Very laid... More

The Rooms were discussting. I walked in and walked out. The manger was rude and obnoxious. He lied as to how nice his rooms were. I think it had to be the worst place I have ever seen. I did'nt stay there on the chance we would get bedbugs. The whole experience was like a nightmare. Dirty DIRt DIrty room.

I spent several weeks here in Spring, 2012, and found them to provide excellent customer service; their rooms to be exceptionally clean; and staff quite courteous and helpful in all areas. Their location; overlooking the Colorado River, and five minutes from Laughlin, NV, is perfect; as is its easy access to the airport and shopping. The Desert Rancho provides weekly... More

First they are unprofessional and the rooms are not thouroughly cleaned well. The walls r dirty full of looks like... More

I have stayed several weeks at Desert Rancho in Feb-Mar 2006 and again for 3 months 2008-09. Rates were cheapest in BC, but I only got what I paid for. The owners apparently don't want to put any money in the place, and it is overall dirty, with a few upstairs rooms relatively clean and neat. I got along well... More

After reading the reviews about this place I think their does need to be medication passed around to everyone. Let’s start with a little history. I have been visiting the Laughlin area for many years. The motels across the river from Laughlin are in what is called "old bullhead city". People who come to gamble in Laughlin and boat in... More
