We stayed here because we were traveling from the UK for a couple weeks to several locations, thus we had LOTS of luggage & we wanted someplace we could pull right up to & unload easily. This hotel provided that. Plus, it was walking distance to everything else in Laughlin. The check-in staff was friendly & it all went smoothly.... More

Staff was very courteous when we arrived. Went to room. Door was not working right and had to use shoulder to get in. Carpet was very stained and ripped. Curtains were dry rotted and had holes. No weather strip on bottom of door and let bugs in. Bathroom was dirty and had hair on floor. Sheets and towels looked clean... More

Great improvement....bathroom could use further updating...beds clean and comfortable...The best part of the experience was Julie at the registration desk, we reserved a pet room...called at 0800 to see if any would be available for immediate check in around noon, Julie said she had one...

This is still one of my favorite casinos. It's a lot quiter than in years past...but still fun. Great if there is a bunch of you...no fighting to find a place where you can gamble together. And Bumbleberry Flats has realllllly good food! If you are on a budget and have simple requirements for a room...you should be happy here....don't... More

This is a old casino but it is very different, because it's one of a kind and the staff is so awesome there is no other casino like it. If you do book here be SURE to request a newly renovated room, Also remember this is not the Aria so dont think you staying at a 5 star resort.

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

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!
