Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort
Travel Blogs from Laughlin
We left Vegas for Laughlin, NV around 11:30 yesterday Jan 7th. Most of these RV Parks kick you out around 12:00. This will be a light travel day as Laughlin is 98 miles or so away from Vegas.
I can't brag about too much sun today as it is sort of cloudy, but the good side of that is that it makes for some beautiful sunsets …
Park is nice but need car to get around. They do have shuttle service. Casino bad with smoke, only stayed about 15 minutes.
... to see where we were going. I really didn't like being so low in the hire car, it just felt weird which I thought was funny because it was pretty much the same as my car at home which I've always loved - funny what you get used to hey. We stopped for coffee and then hit the coast road, which again was very scenic and pretty. We drove through Seal Beach and Long Beach but didn't pull off until we reached Huntington Beach. It's a very surfy town with another really long pier over ...
... big "snowbird" destination in the winter. There are services in this town and free ferries to take tourists over to Laughlin where there is a Casino Row. Bullhead City was basically a construction town for those building the Davis Dam which impounds Lake Mojave in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Now there are thousands of visitors drawn to the mild winter weather and the casinos across the river.
... a bit odd to say the least. As we returned to the interstate and old Route 66, we entered California. The roads suddenly seemed far worse. At Needles, we took I-95 north up the eastern side of the Colorado River to Laughlin in Nevada. The stop had been chosen for us as we were expected to enter from the north (Las Vegas) but following our route, it was an unwanted detour and extra mileage. That said the hotel was good fun, we ate well and played on some of the slot ...
How has this resort rated in the past?
This is a very large RV Resort, people stay here 6 months out of the year. People just like to be warm.

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.
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.
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.
