We were traveling through to Yuma with my mother in law and her cat. This seems to be the only pet friendly hotel in Laughlin. Very rundown. Old carpet on the floor, old old bedspreads, tv's from the 60's and staff that really doesnt seem to give a damm. We asked for non smoking. We were put in a room... More

We wanted to spend the night in Laughlin and hit a couple of the casinos. We were traveling with our small dog so we needed a pet-friendly hotel. We searched TripAdvisor and found this hotel. When we first pulled up, it looked like a fun place - kind of a small pioneer village. We asked for a room and were... More

The friends we went with had a much nicer room than we did. My Partener smokes so maybe that is why he thought. We went to eat supper and had a very long wait, also did not care or the way they put the potatoes under the chicken fried steak, and the brussell sprots were hard.

They have dog friendly rooms, and they are for the dogs. The bed was awful, the carpeting was torn and coming up in multiple places, and overall the room was grungy. The casino is still fun, and the restaurant is still good, but the guest rooms should really be advertised as kennels with a bed for people. Our other concern... More

We stayed here just because of the price. It was on Dec. 30th. We usually stay at the Riverside. We just needed one night, because we were on our way to Sedona. The rooms we just ok. Pretty run down and kinda dirty. Its not somewhere I would want to stay for more than one night.

Probably in its day, the Pioneer Hotel was the premier hotel in Laughlin, however, it is quite evident to us, that the current owners have not invested a cent of money in the rooms for maintenance. There is mold in the bathroom under the sink, no coffee makers in the room, no alarm clock and furniture that is probably from... More

We visited the Pioneer hotel last summer. At the time I did not have my laptop. In Nov 13 (11,12, 13) we stayed 3 days. We had chosen the Pioneer for the free wifi. I was told at check-in that it was under repair. Every time I asked during our stay i got a different answer, but no wifi. My... More

A no frills dog friendly hotel. Paid only $21 booking on hotel.com for a king bed. Our yellow lab loved the river/beach access. Our non-smoking room had no smell of smoke. Don't expect luxe and you will not be disappointed. Lots of nearby restaurants.

Fun, family owned hotel & casino. Great breakfast buffet and gambling. We especially enjoyed the bar overlooking the river. Just steps away from the river and other casinos. You can't beat the price and location!

We got a great rate considering we brought our dog with us. It was nice having a river view room right near the small beach, so we could take her out for a romp in the sand in the morning. The room itself was okay except it didn't look like the floor had been vacuumed. I called housekeeping and was... More
