The room was clean but the carpet needs to be replaced. We had a great view of the beautiful Colorado River. Breakfast at the buffet was very good and they are in the process of renovating it. Dinner at the Riverview restaurant was also good. Rented a car and took a day trip to the Grand Canyon. The heat really... More

the room was clean, plenty of towels. The buffet was good for breakfast and dinner. The boat ride was interesting, telling much of the history of Laughlin. The car show was excellent. The cleaning people were helpful and friendly.

I had read several stories on TripAdvisor, so I was a bit concerned that "you get what you paid for". This was far from the truth...we stayed in the North Tower, the room was very clean and quiet, we were never disturbed by housekeeping when we had our DND sign out. The people in the hotel/casino were all very friendly... More

The rooms should be upgraded. The view of the river was fabulous! The dining experience in the Gourmet Room was fabulous.. The slots were not paying well at all! Over all the 3 days there was a great memory!

This was our first trip to Laughlin in the summer...NEVER again! Millions of kids, and coolers everywhere! Huge coolers! At times we could not even get on an elevator! When did a casino become a family destination?? This should be an adult vacation spot only! Also, join this century, and get free wifi!

Too many people with coolers and children roaming the casino. They use the pool all day and let the kids run wild. Disapointed. Gambling was bad. The machines are so tight now. When the air conditioner is on in your room it smells of cigarette smoke. I won't be back.

Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort was a fun experience. Although the 4th of July brought tons of kids to the adult casino & river life, it was worth the value. Restaurants were good and entertainment a great value. It is not Vegas, but it is 1/3 the price.

i understand that the main reason a person has a business is make a profit but Our stay at the Riverside was one that surprised me. It seemed that from the minute we checked in we were being charged for one thing or another. We were even charged $4.00 for the room keys until we brought them back. The staff... More

I visit Laughlin quite often and usually stay at the Riverside Casino, owned, started, and built by Don Laughlin. This casino has been growing since 1966 from a tiny motel to the behemoth it is today. The 'Good' stuff...plenty of meeting rooms, a huge amount of slots and plenty table game to keep people happy while gambling. In addition, there... More
