Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort
Ranked #8 of 11 Hotels in Laughlin
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The Riverside has a whole wing dedicated to pets. Though located in the old section of the hotel, these rooms have undergone a recent remodel and is close to the casino. The Riverside has added some new food stores, notibly Fatburger.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the river side & downstairs.

You get a lot for the $ at the Riverside. Good food & drink service. Good gambling & best of all ....the comps! In 30 years of going to Las Vegas, only once did a casino pick up the airfare for me! The Riverside always has a deal for me......it's either a totally free package for two, or a two for one package! Starting to go there more than Las Vegas. Get tired of gambling....take in a movie at their cineplex, go bowling at the alley there! Take a river boat ride , or tour Don's fantastic car museum.

Great place to stay! Good location and slots paid out well. Rooms are a bit dated but clean and spacious. Great location on the riverwalk and Water taxi's near by if you don't care to walk. Be sure to sign up for the club card they send you awesome vacation specials in the future.

Warning: if you book thru Travelocity, you don't get to specify a non-smoking room. Rather than accept a smoking room, I paid an extra $50/night to upgrade to an "Executive Room." It was well worth it! It was a large room with two balconies, a fridge, king bed and an amazing view of the river.

The staff is very friendly! Included in the room price was a fun & informative river cruise, and free breakfast buffet which was good. There's an on-site movie theatre and a free, classic car collection. The customers are mostly middle aged and above and very down-to-earth. No fancy types here like you'd find at Bellagio in Las Vegas. Overall, I found the hotel a fun place to stay :)

However...as others have commented, the hotel is dated, the stores in the casino sell low-grade junk and it's very smoky in the casino. But, they do have a non-smoking casino without a craps table.

For the money, this hotel is a very good value. I'll stay here again next time I'm in Laughlin.

We stayed at the Riverside Resort for the USA BBQ championship in November. The location to the event was perfect (on their property). We brought our little dog as usual. They have pet friendly rooms, however the pet room are also smoking rooms which isn't our preference.
The room was dated and smelled musty and like cigarette smoke (to be expected). Housekeeping did bring a machine up to our room to help with the odor and we went out and bought some air freshener. The bathroom door wouldn't close as the hinges were coming unscrewed. The bathroom vent was filthy. The floor was a little dirty. We had a good view of the river, however we couldn't open the slider for fresh air as the door didn't have a screen and bugs were everywhere.
The bed was fairly comfortable and linens were good. This was a basic room, nothing inviting.
The walls are paper thin, so we had a 2 a.m. wake up of our neighbors conversation.
The hotel says it is dog friendly, but it really isn't. There isn't a dog relief area near the rooms. They have a 100 dollar deposit and housekeeping has to inspect your room before you leave to get your deposit back. It just looks like they didn't want to renovate a bunch of rooms and just turned them into pet rooms.
We did take the river cruise one night which was actually quite enjoyable.

We stayed her for the event and because it was dog friendly. Would we stay here again? Probably not. The hotel is run down and quite depressing. The staff is nice, but the hotel needs to renovate and keep the rooms cleaner and provide better maintenance.

We have been going to the riverside for over 20 years. They have a special pet section and recently were smart enough to remove carpet and put wood laminate. Unfortunately they also removed bedspreads probably due to trying to keep clean after pets visit. The casino has a small town feel although it's pretty big. Table games are great except in summer, there is only swamp coolers, but i think they are finally fixing that. The food is not all the great, but if you use the players card you can basically eat free. So for FREE THE FOOD IS GREAT! Most of the patrons are older and off buses. Give them a try for yourself. Oh, at night you can see Don Laughlin as walks through casino!!!

Room Tip: If you have a dog, bring your best friend. If not, ask for south tower.
