This is my second stay at Harrah’s Laughlin, and it’s a property that I absolutely love. This is in spite of the fact that on my first stay, I was put into FOUR different rooms over the course of a day. It’s a saga I don’t want to re-visit, but it left a bad first impression for me. After that saga, I was ultimately put into a south tower room, which I much preferred over any of the other rooms I’d been shown. This stay, I chose a south tower room again, and couldn’t have been happier. Nice decor, good in-room amenities, and I cannot get enough of those mattresses. The resort as a whole is positively lovely. The beach and the pool are excellent, the casino is unpretentious and good fun, the dining options are terrific (of my 18-night trip to Vegas and Laughlin, my best meal was at the Range steakhouse), and the staff are remarkably friendly. While I feel somewhat out of place at this resort, being a 90s baby, it sure didn’t hold me back from having a good time. The only thing I’d have done differently is stayed longer. I can’t give a full five-star review though, because it seems that this resort, like many others, has transitioned to offering mostly kiosk-based checkin. There are two wickets at the front desk, which are designated for Platinum-level players and higher only. I’m fortunate enough to have a Platinum card, but I think that this is an awful move from a hospitality perspective. I understand the motivation to cut costs, but this really rubs me the wrong way. That aside, I’ll be hurrying back next summer to enjoy those lovely south tower rooms, your beach/pool, and some more great steak at Range!
