There are about 7 casinos in this squat area of Laughlin, Nevada where the Colorado River bisects it from the state of Arizona. They are all about from 5 to 10 minutes away from the nearest airport (Bullhead City, Arizona) with Harrah’s being the farthest.From the bank of the river located at the back (east side) of the casino, you could take a water taxi to move from one casino to another for $5. There's also a jet-ski rental nearby as well as a boat tour company that pit stops here.The place run & operated by Harrah’s is complete with all the same amenities of casino resorts found in Las Vegas or Reno but we found out that the slot machines are not as loose as the ones in Reno where we usually play specially the Atlantis Resort & Tamarack Junction (both located along the far end of South Virginia Street).There were numerous eating places inside including a food court as well as a Guy Fieri Mexican Resto (El Burro Borracho) but the only everyday 24-hour open place would be the Beach Café which serves a good array of sandwiches & appetizers for late-night gamblers. Most other places close at 10 PM or 12 MN on weekendsWe rated our 3-night stay (compliments of Caesars Entertainment – the umbrella where the Harrah’s Group now operate under) between 3 to 4 stars as the logistics of moving of our checked-in bags from the airport to our hotel room (and vice-versa) was very efficient. Majority of their staff are courteous and friendly except for a few table games employees who were grumpy and looked so bored and tired of their jobs. Our room (5th floor of the Central Tower 2) looked dated though. The 32-inch flat panel TV has no provision for connecting any other devices like streaming media players or game consoles which we are so accustomed to in most of the big hotels we stay in Reno. The shower stall has dirty markings on the ceiling from obvious water seepages & one of the 2 queen beds sag on their edges. Also, there was no safety box - at least in the room where we stayed-in.Also, unless you have the top 2 tier players card, Wi-Fi is not complimentary while inside your room. Wi-Fi is free when you go down the main casino floor but you have to sign-up with an email address (for marketing purposes obviously). Cost of WiFi is $16 per dayIf you happen to receive the promotional offer to fly-in and stay in Laughlin, NV from Caesars Entertainment, go ahead and take it but limit the time you spend inside the casinos. If you’re a keen observer of the place, it would be literally empty if they are not flying-in all these gamblers from all over the U.S. – which are mostly retired and old folks trying to relive their halcyon days.It’s best to take a side-trip to the Grand Canyon (the West Rim is just about a 2-hour trip) while the less touristy South Rim is about 3.5 hours) or make other trips like a long boat ride along the Colorado River.In the end, make sure that the complimentary flights, hotel rooms, transfers should not cost more than all the money you will definitely lose if you spend a lot of time playing on the casino floor. Readers of this review should be smart enough to know & understand that these casino groups would not fly & give you rooms for free without getting back more in return. Even if we get the same offer in the future, this smaller sister of Las Vegas should be better left alone. The reality is: it’s just another God-forsaken place in the middle of nowhere that was converted into a gambling zone –- a place where smaller creatures of the desert are better known to thrive very well.
