We received a Buffet for two to celebrate our 45th Anniversary. To our surprise we received two bottles of Champayne, and then a beautiful cake, just for us, decorated with a heart and a 'Congratulations' wording on it. Then we received two tickets to the movie of our choice.
We are so impressed and thankful, and have been telling all of our friends about the wonderful Riverside Casino and Resort.

We have always stayed at the Riverside till last year when my wife recieved a fake 100.00 bill out of their cashiers cage.
WE never went to any other casino during our four day visit so it came from there...
We wrote and called but no rsponse from them to make the bill good.
We go to Laughlin at least four times a year but they have lost us permanently...
The rooms and buffet are are fair and should be cleaned and maintained better. as for the buffet, breakfast is the only edible meal.
we have put up with this place only because I have an event there twice a year and and it's right on the grounds and easy to get to.
But we will pass from now on, Michael Faris, Tucson

We go to the Riverside at least three times a year.
We love it because it's so old school, but always updating itself! Its nice because your not bom-barted with teenie-boppers, they always head for Harrah's or River Palms... We stay on the "original" side with the balconies... we get a beautiful view of the river EVERY time we stay. Yea, its a little on the dark side,, but that's why we love it!! The movie theater and bowling alley is so fun to have at your finger-tips.. It's nice now that they have added the Mexican restaurant and the non-smoking casino.. we go there to just be ourselves, and get away from the junk of every day life.. you don't always have to have glitz and glamor to get away for a few days. We love The Riverside and will until the end of time.. We just hope it always stays this way ...

I totally agree with the reviewer from Rancho, CA. The atmosphere and the other customers you will be surrounded by is described perfectly in his review. The hotel is ok if you smoke and have kids but if not, then you probably want to look somewhere else as the smoke and small children are prevalent throught the entire establishement except for the non-smoking rooms. Service is ok, food good, overall experience so-so.

The casino at Riverside is the shabbiest, ugliest one in Laughlin.
But, there are some amenities here found no where else in town. The Riverside has a movie theater, a bowling alley, and a classic car museum. No other hotel in Laughlin has any of these things.
There is also a live theater that is the closest Laughlin has to a Las Vegas Show. But the performers who have shows here are usually oldtimers who can't draw a crowd anywhere else.
The rooms are on a par with the rest of Laughlin. The restaurants are below par.
One problem with the Riverside is that it is on the very end (or beginning) of the River Walk. And because of a its large parking lot on the river, it is a bit of a walk to the nearest other hotel. I like to be right in the middle of the River Walk so I can easily jump from casino to casino and take advantage of the best restaurant deals.

We always stay at the Riverside when we go to Laughlin! You have to remember it is the first hotel in the area, so it is a little old. But the employees are always nice and very accommodating! Although I prefer others to leave their kids at home, it is a good place to bring the whole family! There is a little of everything there....no need to go to other casinos or even out for other entertainment! They have a bowling alley, movie theaters, SPA treatments, some great restaurants, and much much more!!! We've even met Don in the hallways a couple times and he's as nice as can be!

My husband and two children ages 11 and 12 stayed here in August of 2004. It was dirty and shabby. I am not a snob in any way and was not expecting a 5 star resort. The pool was so dirty and gross I wouldn't go in and the kids thought the water slide was pathetic. We had planned to stay another night but left and went to Harrah's which was much better. Plus I put a quarter in a machine on my way out just because I had one in my pocket and won 500.00

We also have stayed at Don Laughlin's resort and it was nice too.
