“Low cost needs work but great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We stopped in to get a room mid week, rate was 29.00 a night, after talking to desk clerk, who was great we took a king suite on the river for 55.00 a night. Room was very large old décor inside the room. The view was great off the balcony over looking the river. The room had water damage to ceiling, water stains on the curtains which also had holes in them. Cobwebs in he corners, dirty floor musty smell in the room. Tub in had some repairs to it, not very well done looked like quick patch job. The great thing was how quite it was on the back side, some river traffic noise but not bad.

Stayed for four nights in a king room with our Golden Retriever. All in all, it was a really good stay and wonderful for our dog. We got a nice non-smoking room with great air conditoning. Liked the old western feel of the decor. Rather than being out-of-date, it was refreshingly different and had personality. TV was small, but I do not go to Laughlin to watch TV....I can do that at home. Our room was clean and Russell, our housekeeper, was really awesome and willing to help in any way he could. However, I did see into some of the other pet rooms which looked just terrible so that is why some other reviews are bad. But some other rooms were good, too. Having said that however, I did notice that the management are redoing some of the rooms, so hopefully soon they will all be acceptable to us guests. Our bed was clean, comfortable, and we got a good night's sleep. We would definitely stay there again. It was great being able to park the car outside the room. The hotel is well-situated and their part of the river walk is the nicest. The casino is charming, but slots too tight, but there are lots of other casinos to choose from with looser machines. Downside for us was that we got a connecting room so we could hear our neighbors even though they were a quiet couple.....HATE CONNECTING DOORS. Also, on arrival the receptionist was not at all nice, but beyond those couple of things we had a really good time. The other people on the desk were very nice. If you get a terrible room or sagging bed.....refuse it.....Maybe then management will improve them all for us. For the price we paid, we feel we had a good deal, especially as our dog was welcome.

Room Tip: If you get a bad room or sagging bed, refuse it, and ask for another one.

We stayed at the Pioneer for the first time and it was a totally enjoyable experience. The entire staff was very friendly and ready to assist you with anything you required. Very quiet during the night.

Room Tip: Stay in the back for a river view and you can park your car right in front of your room

I was looking for a cheap place to stay on the river and got so much more. It started with Pam at the reservation desk. I called in to make a reservation and wanted something special for my girlfriend and was told that the river view rooms were sold out but asked her to give me the best she had. When I arrived to check in I was told Pam had a surprise we went to our room to find we had a beautiful waterfront river view! The whole weekend the staff was amazing and so friendly from the restaurant to the maintenance staff. Very cool western atmosphere! Delicious food for an amazing price never thought of going to any other buffet in town. Central spot in town make it perfect for the river walk!!! Can't wait to come back next summer...

Really rude staff. Especially at check in, even the supervisor, Donna doesnt like people. The room is full of bugs. The mattress is old and our dog growls at it. Its a non smoking room...NOT! The wall paper is peeling from the walls. NO WI FI, even though they advertise free wifi. When I asked when wifi would be available I was told never and to go to the mall. Just a super rude supervisor. Couldnt get one of the four pop machines to work and they ate the $2 everytime. When I reported it to a staff member (whom I believe was a maid) he said, "I dont care". Our 22nd anniversary is a bust and all the hotels afe sold due to the holiday. Crap. Spending money on a terrible memory. The pool has duck pooh in it and gets sun only one hour a day. Waited a hour forbreakfast and finally left hungry.

Room Tip: Stay at the Gold Nugget. Great staff, pool and rooms.
