    Does anyone have any suggestions on where to stay in Laughlin? Long story short my dad went on vacation to Bullhead City and got really sick they ended up taking him to Vegas by helicopter to Vegas where he lost his life on Sept 20th. I never in million years did I think my dad would have died during football season but he did so I have decided to take his ashes to Laughlin and throw them in the river. I'm also going to be taking my 12 year old with me when I do this so the hotel needs to be kid friendly. He went out during the beginning of football and I'm going to throw him in before the Super bowl. Thanks

    Very sorry to hear about your dad.

    Unfortunately Laughlin is even less kid-friendly than Vegas in that there is really nothing for them to do. I would probably go with Harrahs. They had a good arcade in the mid-90s when I was a kid, but I can't comment on it now. It also has some kid-friendly food places like McDonalds and Cinnabon. Their buffet is probably the best in Laughlin too. It would be better in the summer because they have decent pools (by Laughlin standards) and a swim beach. Harrahs is known to have good rooms but its biggest downside is that you can't walk easily to the rest of the casinos.

    The Riverside might be better now that I think about it. They have an arcade, bowling alley, and movie theater. They also have a cool (and free!) classic car display. Their river frontage is probably better for dispersing your father's ashes since the current is usually a little swifter there.

    On second thought, forget what I said about Harrah's. Riverside will probably meet your needs just fine. Just make sure you get a room that was recently updated. Their older rooms are pretty sketchy I'm told.

    Yep, Riverside will be your best bet. More activities there for kids than any of the other hotels in Laughlin for sure.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of your dad.

    I stayed in Riverside 2 days. It was good. The slots were paying me good. Nice view. I probably will be back to Laughlin after checking out Reno.
