I was looking for a hotel on my drive back from Albuquerque to San Jose and came across this property for less than $25! It was so low, but with good ratings, that I was willing to take a chance. It is very similar to a HIE, but with no free
breakfast. It had free wi-fi with no magic codes to have to worry about. The buffet was very inexpensive but limited, but overall still a good deal. Great specials on Wednesdays for senior citizens tied to the casino operation. I was booking for an off-season overnight, your pricing results may vary. I also suspect that they hope to make up the room cost with a trip to the gambling hall.
Place is aging but comfortable. Pool was too cold to swim in (Oct 31-Nov 1). Downside: 13 miles from the heart of Laughlin. If I were the Avi, I would provide a boat ride up the river to the main heart of town, and charge for it. Could make it an
experience, serve drinks, have some music. They are missing a bet. Anyhow, I would stay there again, the machines paid off, and had fun.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Friday night buffet was pretty good with King crab legs on the all you can eat bufffet.
We've passed this place for years on our way to Laughlin center. I've always wondered about this place. Then I was invited to come for the weekend. And am I glad I came. This place is perfectly located. The pool was so clean and refreshing, not
like the dirty, cloudy, warm pool at Golden Nugget. They have beach access. It was just great! A good selection of restaurants inside the Hotel and if you want to go across the river, there's a road adjacent to the hotel. Everything was just so convenient. The staff was exceptional!
We enjoyed our stay. Check in was easy, although check out took a while. Room was clean and comfy. We had a movie theater, arcade, and food court down the hall. Pool was nearby. I would definitely stay again.
Staff were very friendly, and the room was nice. There is also a 24-hour restaurant downstairs, which was nice, since it allowed us to take our time getting showered and ready for dinner after we got there. The beds were not very comfortable. The
view was great. The shower was clean, the soap kind of sucked.
The Location was the only negative thing about this hotel. It was the only business for miles. It is a great location for boating and swimming. There were many families staying at this hotel as it is located on the river and has a great beach.
