This is a very large RV Resort, people stay here 6 months out of the year. People just like to be warm.

Historical Traveler Reviews Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort
BEST TIME I HAD IN 20 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was our first time there. All of the people seemed to bend over backwards to be polite. The food was great--- and the gamming was exciting, with fun and wonderful dealers, which made the experience fun, am looking to go back again.
Great trip to Laughlin - Loved the Riverside Casino. Plan to return soon
We loved Laughlin. Loved the Riverside Casino. Food was very good. Like the Farmer slot machines. Do hope to return in the spring. Would like better restroom plans at the Airport at Bullhead.
Would of rather of stayed home
WHERE TO BEGIN? First: It smells like a dirty house, there is no air, Our room was horrible! We got phone calls all night long, which sounded like prank calls from the Room Service Ladies who were annoyed with us because we complained about dingy bathrooms. We asked for a wake up call we never got it! We had to call them! The room were Smelly and need to be rennovated! Our company was given a handy-cap room with a backed up toilet no hot water and basically there was no use for a bathroom! The Resturant had dirty dishes, with dirt in the water, and the food would of been better if it was DOG FOOD! Dont even bother going into the pool...... its a real cement pond.... im not joking. Now I know where the term cement pond comes from. Wait I mean hole in the ground... Service was terrrible. Elevators didnt work well. Entertainment Venue was not suitable for the worst of activities. This Hotel "resort" is the worst we have ever stayed in!
Its a DUMP!
This casino is definately the dirtiest on the river. There is a bug infestation right now; in the rooms, eateries, everywhere. Management has been notified several times by employees, and the bugs are still there! The smoking section really needs a new ventilation system, you'll leave smelling like every pipe, cigar, cigarette imaginable. You can see the cloud in the air. The employees are really what keeps the locals coming in. But the employees are the lowest paid on the river. The slots are very tight, and they keep removing the favorites.
The Best Value
My husband and I have been visiting the Riverside Casino for the past 23 years. We have stayed in just about every casino there is, but have always ended right back at the Riverside Casino. Not only are the rooms reasonably priced, the food is good, the rooms are clean and the employees have always been wonderful. We just got back from Laughlin last month and have plans to go next month. I've always said, "you make your own fun," but staying at the Riverside, you have no reason to frown; And, if you are then you should head on home and let everyone else enjoy their time without listening to the whiners. You have the river during the day, shopping, site seeing, boating, picnics, etc. and during the night you can stroll the river walk, enjoy other people's excitement and naturally, the Casino gambling. I personally suggest you leave the kids at home, but if you must bring them there is plenty for them to do as well. I'll never stop staying at the Riverside Casino. It's my favorite place!
Love the loosers lounge
having spent some time [and money] at the riverside i have noticed that you have the most congenial employees like neil ? masterman, and i ran into a mrs l koon in the hallway she was very helpful in directing to other places in your casino a wonderfull place really enjoyed myself.
The Riverside is great, love it
Have stayed at the Riverside quite a few times, rellay think it is great.
Have been going to the Riverside Resort for several years. Would highly recommend it. Great deal on rooms. My wife is in their 'Player's Club' and we get complimentary rooms, food and movie tickets. (They have several movie theater screens.) They also have pet rooms right by the river's edge. Check out the FREE auto museum on the 3rd floor. They also have a non-smoking section in the casino. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Laughlin.
we have been going to the riverside casino for 13 yrs,we are treated with respect,our rooms are always clean. the staff treats us great and when we do lose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!we are invited back on them with a free meal!!! So PLEASE keep up the good work.
The place looks dirty. The eateries are filthy. The parking lot is not safe. My car has been broken into two times. This has not happened at the other casinos.

... all day from Winslow to Laughlin and only over 250 miles. Great riding day.
I'm not a gambler but enjoy watching and I enjoy just all the Casino excitement. I'm going to go down and check it out. The Colorado Bell is my hotel/casino- Shaped like a River Boat on the Colorado River. Cool and cheap. $27/night!
I am donating my time and money to this cause because ...
... We had a look at the Amboy Crater from the viewing platform - didn't really fancy the walk up to the rim. Amboy was fascinating. Roy's Cafe still operates for the basics, but doesn't serve food anymore; the motel has been closed since about 1974 when the I-40 opened. Roy used to employ about 90 people in the cafe, garage and motels "back in the day".
The next section through the Graffiti Corridor is ...
... with an awesome pool, beach on the Colorado River, 8 movie theatres, restaurants and more. Cheapest KOA ($23/nite) we have ever been in. The next day we drove to Oatman, Az. This little tiny town in the mountain is known as an old gold mining town with burrows running all over the streets during the day. The burrows go back in the mountains at nite.. Fun little day trip. We walked the Laughlin "river walk" along casino row and then took a 90 minute narrated boat ride on the ...
... do not do it justice, and you cannot tell just how drastic the drop off is when you are inches away with no railing! Before going on the skywalk, you can view over the edge - see in the pics, there is NO RAILING and the drop off is 4,000 feet. People were getting SO close, one slip and it takes 12 seconds to hit the bottom... ugh, don't think about that too long. I can't stress enough how close you get to ...
... I swear I heard the hoot of a train whistle though, somewhere off in the mountains. maybe they're still coming through….
we walked around the town and while many of the houses are clearly not inhabited any more, some are. lots of artists come here to work and be inspired by the clear air and space that surrounds the town. we had a fantastic lunch in the old coaching inn called Yesterdays and wished we could stay here for longer. the locals all stopped and passed ...
