We enjoyed staying at the Pioneer hotel because we have two dogs that we travel with, and you can take them to the river for a walk. Some rooms are remodeled, but the one we stayed at, the bathroom was not updated. However, the staff is friendly and make sure you enjoy your stay.

Sure, the Pioneer is not the fanciest place to stay in Laughlin, but, then again, none of the hotels here are 5-Diamond material. My room was clean and cozy, and that's all I need. As usual, my room was in the "motel" style section of rooms. I have yet to splurge and get a room that faces the Colorado River,...

I'll start my review with this....I had a strange feeling the entire time I was at the Pioneer Hotel. It seemed unsafe and scary to me. There seemed to be people hanging around on the upper balconies just watching. That's weird to me. Did they live there? Also it seemed like there were permanent trailers in the parking lot....also odd......that...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and the room was barely adequate: the outdated vertical window blinds did not cover the entire window, thus not providing necessary privacy. The small television only had about ten channels, which were mostly sports stations. Ice was available but a sign on the ice machine warned that people with ice chests would...
