With the Colorado River to the east and mountain ranges to the West, it makes sense that the previous names of Nevada’s Laughlin River Lodge include Gold River, Sam’s Town Gold River and River Palms. It is owned by Nevada Restaurant Services, and has been operational since 1984.
The hotel is made up of more than 1000 rooms and suites, with mountain or river suites. All of them are comfortable and spacious, with custom breakfast tables, chairs and nightstands as well as free Wi-Fi and a complementary snack basket. Deluxe rooms also include a 55-inch LED television, microwave, hair dryer and other amenities. The standards and services at the Laughlin are highly rated by travellers from all over America and the rest of the world.
