... noise, jake brakes, and our music, it should be peaceful. As you watch the video when you can see the cities, make note that one side is NV and across the river is AZ. Jim was trying to tell me it was CA but it did not sound right to me.
We went to the Riverside Casino today (Jan 8th) and lost as usual but it was fun but can't be losing all our diesel money.

... as trying to get off and back onto it. Within 2km of leaving the shop we were travelling on a 5 lane freeway- on the WRONG side of the road, and on huge bikes (compared to what we normally ride). Not necessarily the easiest start to our trip. Unfortunately, Michael's bike needed filling up while we were still in LA, thus our need to get off the highway. All was going well until we got lost trying ...
... section of Laughlin up behind us and Davis Dam. They have done a beautiful job of the trailway and park areas along the river and at the dam. It is beautiful.
I almost forgot-- the Osmond Brothers -- how could I? We did go to the show and it was very good even if Don Laughlin's Celebrity Theatre was well below its capacity and most in there were even ...

Thankfully with a few miles to spare we found the one and only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino Laughlin
Good experiences at the Belle
Since 1986, I have stayed at the Colorado Bell at least twenty times if not more, the last being December 2003. My wife and I were always treated with respect and received good service. The steak and micro beer special at the micro brewery at the south end of the casino is a good deal and the steak is always done to my liking.
The Riverwalk along the Colorado River is a nice break from the gambling tables.
Laughlin Nevada rates much higher on my list then the crowds and costs of the Vegas Strip.
Went to park in the lot after a long day of sightseeing, security cop on bicycle told us to move over, we were on the line. We did, and after we got out of the car to go back to our rooms, he said our car was still too long and told us to move it completely. We feel he was harassing us because we had a custom car. He continued to follow us through the lot like we were a bunch of low juvenile deliquents. We are 50 years old. He pushed his authority to the point of pissing us off.
Just spent a few days in Laughlin at the Colorado Belle Hotel and Casino. The hotel hasn't changed much in the past ten years. Much of the interior is just plain worn out. We found the hallways and such to be rather filthy. Rooms are rather high priced (We stayed in the Burboun Tower) compared to neighboring hotels. The rooms are not at all quiet in the towers. Lot's of corridor noise and traffic noise. Our friends staying at the Riverside said their rooms were very quiet. At the Belle, the maid staff shouts their personal conversations back and forth down the halls regardless of how early they start. If you stay up late you can forget the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door knob. Staff ignores it. Plan on being woke up early. Our bathroom was in disrepair and looked as though a preschooler had recaulked the shower. Don't count on a hot shower - That's a crap shoot in itself. The Belle does have a couple of good restaurants including the Boiler Room and the Mark Twain.
Exceeded my expectations
Just returned from a weekend stay and overall it was great. We booked an internet special at $9.99 a night including the weekend. After reading some past reviews I didn't know what to expect. We arrived a few hours before check-in but they found us an available room (upgraded) and let us check in early. The room was clean and good sized and the bathroom was larger than I expected it to be. If you don't want to walk a distance, ask for a room near the elevator because they have very long hallways.
Just got back from a week at the Belle. this is the second time we have stayed there. The first time was just one night but this time we stayed 7. We got great prices! 9.00 weekdays and 19.00 weekends. We got all we had asked for..... adjoining rooms and a fridge. These things they wont guarntee but put a big effort out to give what you ask for. All employees we dealt with were more than helpfull and kind. We ate at the buffet which was good and the diner was very good! Great specials with great prices. We didnt eat at the upscale restaurants. As compared to the other buffets at other casinos for the same price all were equal.
i just arrived home from a trip tp laughlin that was going to be my best ever. My son and daughter in law just had my first grandchild; they live in Bullhead City. With many friends and relatives arriving for this special event, and considering I (new grandpa) was traveling alone, I decided to stay at the Belle in order for others to stay at my son's new house.On the morning of the 25th of Sept.,the day the baby was being released from the hospital, the door to my room would not lock or even close properly.My son was there to pick me up to participate in the taking home of my new grandchild and the door wasn't working. I called the desk...went down to the desk...my son went down to the desk.... that was at 8:30 AMWe had intended to go to breakfast, take our time going to the hospital, having time for my kids to fill out and sign all of the proper documents in regards to the new one, etc.After several attempts to get the door fixed or be assigned a diffeerent room we got nowhere and my son was now pressed for time and had to leave.This left me stuck in a room that couldn't be secured and missing an event that was very special for the entire family.It was late in the afternoon when finally someone that I called actually responded with professional action and courtesy. Within minutes a man from engineering was there to repair the problem which was not a major undertaking. He was very nice and took care of the problem quite efficiently.Why didn't the first call hours earlier nad the trips to the desk by my son and myself get this task completed in a timely manor?The reason was the condisending, slow,who gives **** attitude of two different desk clerks that were too busy talking to each other and giggling about who knows what as opposed to taking care of the paying public. One was the same one that did not honor a discount post card I had received in the mail twoo weeks earlier and had called about the night before my trip began.When I checked out the following morning, a third desk clerk looked at me as though I shouldn't complain when she inquired about my stay at the Belle.I left there and went to the Golden Nugget for the next two nights. They honored the comps they had sent me and the rooms were emaculate.The last two nights my comps at Harrah's were honored also. Even though I didn't have reservations at either place.DONE
Great place to stay on the river
My family and I have been going to the river for the past 4 summers(1998-2002) and we have stayed at the colorado bell each visist. Are expierences have all been great! the bell has great service, polite employees, decent prices and we all love the breakfast buffet, the rooms are great it's just a comfortable place to stay while trying to have a nice relaxing time. We recomend that everyone coming to Lauglin stay at the Colorado Bell.
We made the unfortunate mistake of going to their Sunday Brunch buffet - it was really awful. Very poor selection of foods - at 1:30 in the afternoon, by the way - our server came to the table once during our entire meal, the place wasn't very clean, and the buffet staff very unfriendly. As we stood at the counter before going in, the attendent was talking very loudly with another attendent about someone they each knew and spoke about this person in a not very nice way - all the while, ignoring us standing there. The outside of the Belle is dirty looking, especially on the river side, and it is the only casino on the main part of the riverwalk which hasn't made room for the riverwalk sidewalk. You have to go up from the sidewalk at the Pioneer, walk in front of the Belle (or through it - a sad mistake, I might add) and then cut through a long hallway area to steps (which were dirty) that take you back down to the riverwalk.On top of this, the place just plain looks tacky.
Good place to stay
Have been there twice and we have really enjoyed our stay. Got a boat room without extra charge for a ridiculous low price ($17) during high season. Room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Unfortunately not too quiet at night. Nice view at the Colorado River. Buffet was not superb but ok. Nice pools. Staff a bit unpersonal. Absolute value for your money.
Hotel is unfriendly to Seniors
When we made our reservation, we specifically asked for a room near the elevator to minimize the distance we needed to walk.
We arrived at the agreed-upon check-in time and found no rooms were available. When a room finally did open up, three hours later, it was as far from the elevator as it could possibly have been.
We will never go back here.
