Travel Blogs from Laughlin
... outlet malls and touristy stuff to do.....actually a lot nicer than I expected since I've never been here before.
There's plenty of golf courses in the region and we did get out to play the Mojave Resort course which is tied to the resort, very attractive as you can see in the pictures and reasonably priced at $55 after 1pm. Its too dark to golf by 5pm so you have to hustle to get finished all 18 holes.....or at least hit the ...
... that we got lost! Travelling along Route 66, in the middle of the desert, and in the dark is not fun at all! Somehow we made it to Laughlin, Nevada (broken, tired, and questioning if it's all worth it). The town is an oasis bordered by rugged desert and the Colorado River, and we were staying in a casino shaped as a steam boat. Total distance travelled: 347.5 miles / 560km Trip time: 10:30am - ...
... some 100 stairs to walk down to get to the casino and then, of course, what goes down must go up ..... I made it, though. Good for us to get this exercise, too. One would think after such an effort to get to Harrah's there would've been some reward on the machines but no such luck.
At home we played our usual crib games and I realized I have not given an update to this competition in quite ...
... down the road a bit to just walk up to the dam and find this out. There was a Bureau of Land Management park that we could've accessed had the government not shutdown. Denis spoke to a tourist when he fueled who was over from Switzerland or Germany who had come over specifically to visit Joshua Tree National Park, the Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone... she didn't know what she was going to do. Sad...
... and I was surprised how many people were out & about at the beach for a weekday, it's obviously a very popular place. We had a walk out along the pier & around the main streets, then stopped by the international surf museum only to find it closed for renovations which was a real shame. We had a blowout on Toby the other day when our (plastic) pressure regulator on our water inlet hose burst, so we found a Walmart & bought a new brass one. Now we can hook up to our ...

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.....
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.
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.
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.
