Edgewater Hotel & Casino
Travel Blogs from Laughlin
We spent a couple of days at Norms RV park before moving to the Avi Resort and Casino since their RV park has a few more amenities than Norms. We are setup backing on to the golf course so its very scenic and Liz is happier than anything because she can walk over to the casino anytime her little heart desires. The first couple of days were spent taking in what the area has to offer. Laughlin is a mini-Las Vegas with some ...
... We made it safely to Bagdad Cafe, on historic Route 66, for a hard earned break from the first half of our day. It was surreal travelling along the old Route 66, buildings and towns that were once occupied are now completely empty. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the scenary for too long as it was the second half of the day that things didn't go according to plan. I gave up counting the number ...
Any of you who know Laughlin will appreciate this feat-- last night we walked from our motorhome in the Riverside RV park (Riverside being the first casino as you enter Laughlin from the north) to Harrah's at the south end of the strip but up a hill to boot.... and then back to the RV park, bucking a headwind all the way which made it slow going despite the downhill start. Once we got to Harrah's ...
... and mountain ranges all around in the distance. Not much traffic which I like.
Parker, Arizona for gas-- was going to wait till Nevada but couldn't pass up the $3.349 gal price. Sunshine and warm.
North of Blue Water Casino on the 95 was beautiful terrain. We drove to Parker Dam, knowing we couldn't cross it in motorhome, but not realizing we couldn't walk it even and we had had to turn around ...
... to the sirens call, a few fireworks and the occasional fireball, was an interesting show. Although I will admit I was a tad disappointed as I had heard about the legendary pirate fight and had wanted to see it for myself, the Sirens show has replaced the old show, guess they felt it was time for a change.
We decided to walk the strip back to The Luxor (a 40min walk according to Google) which we managed to drag out to two hours. We watched ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Edgewater Hotel & Casino Laughlin
Friendly & Helpful Staff
I love the Edgewater. They have the friendliest staff, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. I asked my boyfriend to marry me at the Edgewater. The staff put up a huge banner for me and helped me make the day perfect in every way. I will never stay anywhere else when I go to Laughlin.
My wife and I spent 3 nights here in July. We had a great time and will be returning for our wedding annicersary on September 11.
We stayed at the Edgewater August 7-9, 2003. We had two rooms (adjoining) in the Sedona tower. First of all, the rooms are small and simple. There is no bathtub (only shower) which made it hard with my 1 year old. They only give you a couple towels and when you ask for more they don't want to give them out!! The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. There is no room service. Pool area is okay but very crowded with children. On thursday the hotel was pretty quiet and my husband and I had a nice time in the casino. But friday was a nightmare. It was very very crowded. You couldn't even walk down the halls without being run over by people with luggage/coolers, etc.....
The casino got very busy which made it hard to get a drink. The slots were loose- we actually came out even which is nice. The food at the edgewater buffet is absolutely horrible. The garden cafe is okay, but I highly recommend going to harrahs for meals. I have a free coupon to use in november- January but I will probably pass and stay somewhere else.
I went to the Elvis Museum in Las Vegas, Nv and received coupons for 2 free nights at the Edgewater in Laughlin. I had never been there. Much to my surprise the place was clean and furthermore we paid nothing since I used thsese free coupons! Of course since it was free I indulged in taking my family on a river boat ride and spending a little bit of extra money! Next trip I will be renting a jet ski boat
Broken ankle and all my vacation was great. Two weeks before a much needed vacation I broke my ankle. The folks at the Edgeater were just great at helping me redo my vacation plans. Everyone from the great fellow that picked me up from the airport, wheelchair in tow, to the girls in the Hickory Pit that made it possible to have a great relaxing meal out of the mading crowd. The reservation girls that helped me arrange for transportation were grand. I just can't say enough about all the staff. The hotel was very wheelchair friendly. Plenty of room in the casino to get around, and the room was large enough to handle the scooter that I rented. The location of the hotel on the strip is marvelous, right in the middle of all the aciton and across from the mall.
Didn't smell too bad
It was my first time in Laughlin and I found a great deal for 25 bucks a night for Sat. and Sun. When I got to the Edgewater, my boyfriend and I stood in line for about 30 minutes behind a group of people who looked like they weren't old enough to be there. Then when we finally got to the desk, they had lost my reservations and tried to weasal $10 more a night out of us. They said they were sold out of the room I reserved and put us on a non smoking floor with 2 beds. But I have to say, although the part of the hotel we were put in was old and the elevators were kinda scary, the room didnt smell too bad (I was really worried after reading some of the reviews) I have to warn people to check the sheets! Ours had a huge brown stain on one of the beds. Beware- all the windows ARE NOT tinted! The service at the restraunt downstairs was bad but the food was good. The jet ski rental people were awsome. There was a crappy band on Sat nite outside but there were $1 beers and hotdogs.....plus it was free entertainment. For 25 bucks a night, you really can't beat it. Don't go expecting too much and you shall be pleasantly surprised.
Bad Upkeep of Room
Stayed two nights in May 2003. Coffee pot but no coffee,creamer,or sugar each day. Electrical outlet was loose in the wall with one screw keeping it from falling out. No hand towels had to get our own off of the cart in the hallway. The hotel has soap dispensers on the wall instead of bars of soap. Went to take a shower and the dispenser was empty. Room was not vacuumed either day nor dusted. The dealers down in the casino must have stayed in our room because they were all gruppy.
Enjoyed the Edgewater
Stayed 2 nights for the first time at the Edgewater, have stayed at most of the others in Laughlin. Enjoyed the Edgewater and plan on staying there again soon.
We were invited to the Edgewater Hotel and Casino for Valentines day. We arrived on thursday, got our room immediately. Friday, Valentines day, they had a marvelous dinner for us The dinner was excellent, the dinner show very nice and every one was so polite and cheerful. Then after the wonderful dinner, were surprised by champagne and strawberries in our room. It was the best Valentines day we had in a long time. Thank you so much Edgewater Hotel and casino. You will be seeing us again, hopefully in the near future.
Cheap but fair
Our room was cheap at just 415 a night in the summer months. We stayed four nights. It was an average two double beds hotel room. Check in took forever even though we reserved in advance with a credit card, so did check out. The room was clean and we received a lot of freebies coupons including a free night's stay in December. The
slots were average. Our party of four took $25 each to play in the slots. Two lost, two won and we came away about $25 in the black (ahead). The food at the cafe downstairs was so-so, and so was the service. But we're use to Las Vegas food and service, and there is certainly no comparison in Laughlin. We loved the riverside walkways, and river cruise dinner. When we checked in, we asked for an upgrade to a suite or something nicer, and we were told they only had the avergae size rooms.
