Laughlin Nevada

We arrived in Laughlin, Nevada, on April 4th and spent 5 nights there. The first 3 nights were at Harrah's Hotel & Casino, which is shown on the picture below. It is not the best property to stay at, as it turns out since it is at the end of Casino Drive and it is not connected to the River Walk along the Colorado River in the same manner the other hotels are. We did enjoy it though and the price was right at, an average of $30 per night. There were two pools for swimming and several average restaurants. Even though the price is good, I do not think we will stay there another time.

On Friday, April 7th, we moved the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, shown below with reservations at $60 and $80 per night for Friday and Saturday night respectively. It turns out that if you gamble a little bit which we did, you can get quite good deals. By the time we left, the room had been reduced to $30 for both nights and almost all of our meals paid for. I was also up about a $100 as well. What a deal!

The River Walk runs all along the hotels between them and the Colorado River. Great for strolling and also doing some shopping as shown on the following pictures. You can walk to one end of the River Walk and then take a water taxi back to your hotel for $4 per person. If you are planning to go to Laughlin, Nevada, we strongly recommend the Flamingo Hotel and Casino. Please note that it will be changing names at the end of May since it has been sold.

Laughlin is much like it was in Las Vegas back in the 70's and 80's in terms of deal you can get for rooms and the price of meals. We had a seafood buffet on friday night at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino for a total of $25 for the two of us. Beer, Wine, all the seafood you can eat as well as desert and soft drinks or coffee was included. I think the wine we drank accounted for the $25 alone!

It is hard to believe that Laughlin was a bait shop on the Colorado river in 1970 and now it is a gambling mecca's with a total of 12 casinos. For more information about Laughlin Nevada, click here.

The weather was very fine, in the mid 80's and light winds. Now we are off to Las Vegas which is a 90 mile drive on excellent roads.

Tonight, April 9th, we are in Las Vegas at the Treasure Island hotel and Casino. We are here for 3 days and then we move over to the Bellagio Hotel and Casino.
