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...

For starters we knew this was not going to be a great hotel we booked here only for our dog. This was the only hotel that would allow a dog that weighs more then 50 pounds! Quite the bummer our yellow lab weighs 90, so I went with very little expectations... Well this place falls far from that. Bed terribly...

We arrived early and the clerk was nice and let us check in at noon, which I really appreciated. It is a basic motel. We were on the third floor with a view of the river, nice. The rooms are outdated, but they were clean. The best part is it is in a very good location and you can walk...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few nights to visit some family and friends. The hotel staff and housekeeping were really friendly and nice. The casino itself was small, the saloon was great!

The Pioneer Hotel & Gambling Hall is the only hotel that offers a window and walkway just steps away from the river. Our room overlooked the river and beach but the room itself was old and outdated. The carpet was stained and dirty, the sink in the room was set really low, the bed spread was torn, the bed was...

We are in two room. One was ready and basically that seems to mean the beds were made. The other was not so they said they gave us a better room. The carpet in the BETTER room looked like the stains were left behind from a murder scene. The room with the single King bed was about the same and...

We were in Laughlin for wedding. Picked the Pioneer because of price and the reviews seemed overall good. I knew the place was old, so wasn't expecting a lot We had booked a nonsmoking room, but put in a smoking room and from what I could tell was probably a pet room. Had strong urine smell. We seemed to be...

We stayed at the Pioneer one night in June 2013 on our way from Vegas to San Diego. We wanted a drive -up motel, not a high-rise. The clerk at the front desk was downright jovial in doing his job. We loved the pool and the riverwalk. The room was old-looking, it's supposed to lokk that way I guess right...
