We are non-smokers so we really appreciated this hotel with the rooms outside of the casino. We ran in just enough to check in which was a quick processes. The prices were low too. The casino has a wonderful restaurant called the Bumbleberry Flats which I highly recommend. The room was clean and nice. We stayed in room 562 which... More

Yes, this is an old property, but it is under renovation, some rooms are revitalized, and the staff and prices are good enough to make all rooms a decent value. Best for us was the gracious pet policy. The room was not renovated but clean and comfortable. Yes there were signs of age but nothing we couldn't accept. The bed... More

Have stayed here many x's over the years. Looks like nothing has ever been done here. The asphalt all gravelly, the 2nd & 3rd floor walkways: just plywood boards screwed down. My room was caked with a thick cigarette smell,. (yes I chose a "smoking" room) I don't smoke tobacco. The decorations a tired has-been Victorian motif. The bathtub/shower was... More

We have landed here out of desperation. The other pet friendly hotels were all booked up and we snagged the last pet friendly but child unfriendly room available at this place. If I could find a camping spot I'd rather sleep in the car. The room literally reeks of decades of smoke imbedded into the carpet,furniture and walls. I used... More

Stayed over night in a room with a king size bed that sagged in the middle and had flat pillows. Old small television, no coffee maker,and no hairdryers. The shower head was super low and loud. This is a run down facility that needs to be renovated and modernized!

Old motel style facility. There is definitely nothing spectacular about this place and the unit I stayed in showed signs of age (like cigarette burn marks in the sink). Units have a wall mounted air conditioners which can be a bit noisy…so if you are looking for central air, this is not the place for you. There is plenty of... More

We made a quick decision to celebrate my birthday this past weekend in Laughlin and decided to go to the Pioneer. We arrived late so we didn't get an accessible room but we were in the 18 and over area so it wasn't too noisy. We never heard our neighbors. The TV was awful, the engineering person said it was...

The rates were exceptional. The room was adequate. The electronics were ancient. It's great that they give veterans discounts. The Bumbleberry has average food. The Asian Cockroach I took home in my luggage was huge. Would I stay uere again? Only if I keep my bags in my truck.

We did not stay at the Pioneer Hotel but we did play and eat in the Gambling Hall so our rating is placed upon the Hall and not the Hotel. When you enter the Gambling Hall, you are taken back to the old West. This is the only place we found in Laughlin where some of the Slot Machines still... More

Leonard, the bartender at the main bar is the best there is. Two different times 3 years apart we stopped in, played the bar machines and he waited on us. Awesome guy.
