“fantastic food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We went on a chartered flight with sun country airlines from Seattle, the flight was good. The service was great, with our bags being delivered to our room. Had a nice room with a balcony, we upgraded with a small surcharge. We ended up in the North Tower, would have preferred the south tower. Very smoky when you leave the elevator to walk to the non smoking casino which is where the south tower is. The smoke even got up through the elevators into the hotel hallways, we were on floor 10 a non smoking floor, but smoke was still in the hallways. The room was a nice size, got a refrigerator which is great for seniors. The building is quite old, the casino area is dark hard to see where to insert your players card into the slot machine. The slots were very very tight, no matter which one I played, they didn't even play with you, just quickly took your money. I ended up talking to other players and they were complaining as well, no pay outs. Oh well luck comes and goes, this trip it didn't visit with me. The food completely made up for the tight machines. The prime rib is the best ever, we had turkey dinner also, it was great, fried chicken amazing. All and all it was a nice four day get away, the weather was perfect mid 70's, nice for walking the river walk.

Room Tip: South tower, pay extra for the balcony, so nice to get fresh air into the room. Get a nice water vi...

Enjoyed the low key, relaxed travel venue. Once luggage was checked, no more handling as it was delivered to the room. Water shuttle to Arizona side was nice. Recommend the hour long river tour on USS Riverside....we were fortunate to get under the bridge to make it to Davis dam. Was nice to hear some of the history of the Laughlin development to determine future exploration. River walk is very nice and you should be prepared for lengthy walks if you plan to visit each property on foot. Walked to Harrah's and then took $4 water taxi back to Riverside. Rented a car to visit Oatman to feed the burros with gunfight show at 12:15 with donations to benefit Shriners. Continued on to Kingman and later learned mountain visit would have potential of wildlife views. Saw beautiful views, birds, and petroglyphs while on Christmas Tree Pass!

Room Tip: Choose Riverview, sunrise, pool view, south tower non smoking.

My husband and I always stay here when we go to Laughlin. My husband likes the poker room. Since I don't gamble, I like having the many movies to see. Gormet Room resturant is exceptional.
We always book the executive suite and it is very comfortable.

Room Tip: We like the North Tower as it is close to poker room and movies. We are going next month on a charte...

Stayed in South Tower, Floor 26, third week of February, not only got bed bugs but some traveled home with us. Am going to have to have professional treatment at our house to get rid of them. I wonder if Don Laughlin would like to pay for the cost of the professional treatment.
Other than this terrible infestation, the hotel rooms need to be updated--ceilings, beds, bathrooms are all 1960/70s, carpet is gross and it is way past time to invest in updating or lose your best customers. Customers do not want to be King of a bed bug infested dump!
The margarita bar is the best drink place in Laughlin. The food at the buffet and restaurant is not very tasty but if you have comps, it is just ok. Otherwise, eat at Tropicana, Golden Nugget and Aquarius. Even though Laughlin's offers travel packages, it would be worth the extra money to stay next door at Aquarius or Tropicana or another casino hotel since rooms were about $20 a night the week we were there. So if you are considering traveling on Don Laughlin's air/hotel package plan, I suggest checking the other casinos for room reservations, checking into your room at Laughlin's but taking your suitcases and staying at another casino's hotel. I look forward to a response from Don Laughlin's staff regarding payment for professional treatment to remove the bed bugs from my house that we contracted while staying in their hotel.

Room Tip: Tip--Avoid bed bugs by if traveling on Don Laughlin's air/hotel package plan but checking the ot...

My wife and I travel to Laughlin 5 to 7 times a year. We enjoy the gambling, food, and rooms. If you consider the slot tight then try your luck at the Blazing 7s with a fair amount of cash. If you time it right then things are good. I hit six jackpot this last weekend when the time was right. So try your luck at the Riverside and if it does pan out then they will comp you.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Executive Suite in the North Tower are close to the elevator.

As a ten time visitor to Laughlin,I will tell you, for the money you cannot beat it ! Clean rooms and good service by the staff. Lots of comps with your players card. Under the south tower gambling floor is non-smoking which is nice for us ex-smokers.

Room Tip: Riverside suites are nice. Weekends can be a little louder in the hallway.
