Just wondering if anyone has experience at this resort? Considering a 2 night stay next week. thx.
I have never stayed there but did play in the casino. The only problem I saw was it is alone with no other properties nearby. It is about 15 miles from Laughlin. The casino was nice enough but very quiet with not many people playing when we were there.
Ironically, that's the only casino in (the) Laughlin (area) where I've done very well, gaming-wise. It was always well-attended when I was there. I've never seen the rooms.
Big problem is that it's waaayyyyyy out in the toolies! More so than Sams Town is from the Strip, actually.
Kind of a semi-plus is that there's a "secret" bridge to the Arizona side right in back of the property.
Stayed there about ten years ago, mostly because there's a good golf course across the street. Yes, it's about ten miles south of Laughlin. Right on the river, with a nice beach if the weather is good. I was given a suite (no idea why) which was a great room. My friend's wife did well in the casino as we played golf. Food was good. Obviously, you need a coar to get anywhere.
I visited just once. I hoped to play some live poker, but after I watched the games a while, they did not seem too appealing. I was not impressed with this casino. I better like being right in the center of Laughlin and having plenty of choices.
I did not know you spend any time in Laughlin, Dewey. I don't recall ever seeing a mention of playing poker in Laughlin in your many trip reports..(oh, I missed the part about only going there once)..
We used to go to Laughlin quite often back in the 90's after the Flamingo Hilton opened. But since about 2000 all the trips have been to Vegas. I don't think the In & Out was there the last time I was in Laughlin. And half of the hotels had different names back then..
I agree with dewey. I did not really care for the place. maybe the idea of going to an indian casino in nevada threw me off. I dont know, just didnt seem freindly to me.
It was Avi I visited just once. I used to go to Laughlin as part of every trip years back. I went again last year and liked it. Also, all the fees and noise and changes in comps on the strip and downtown are driving me offstrip. I like Laughlin, but I need really to rent a car to go there. I'm two days at Red Rock (2 nights MyVegas free) with my son, so I'm renting a car anyway to get to the Canyon for hiking, and following that up with really the cheap Laughlin rooms will pay for the rental. I'll see how it goes this time. I expect there will not be too many folks there in December. Maybe I'll regret the decision if the only folks at the tables are the same locals. However, there is plenty to do that is not gambling. We'll see. I can't pass up 5 nights for a total of $22. The three free nights at the Colorado Belle are just for live poker played last November. No one gives free rooms for live poker anywhere I know. So, that is a draw. I blogged my trip last year. Just scroll past all the Bellagio photos and the Red Rock reports and you will see a few posts that mention Laughlin. http://vegasbirthdaybash.blogspot.com/
We spent one night at Edgewater in Feb. Gambled there, Belle, and Harrahs and all 3 properties are sending me comps now. I really liked Laughlin
