I would like to start this by saying we paid $16/night (midweek). $16! Now, think about what you would picture a $16 hotel to look like. I'm picturing a hostel with bugs for sure. You can't even camp for $16 anymore.
For $16, this hotel is EXCELLENT. That doesn't mean it's a Ritz-Carlton. That means the room was perfectly clean, bug-free, had amazing climate control and had surprisingly comfortable beds. The staff was friendly and they even upgraded us to a river view room because they had vacancies. The outdoor pool was a perfect temperature and you can see the river from the pool area.

I was there for a Powerlifting competition. The hotel is older but it was clean and the staff was nice and willing to help. We had trouble with our sink and a maintenance person showed up promptly and took care of it. Had an issue with the TV and the maintenance man came in quickly and again fixed it in no time. The buffet restaurant is surprisingly good, at it was a bargain. The Lodge restaurant was very nice and can not complain about food or service. Our server (Jon, I think, made us bananas foster for desert even though they were not in the menu. The casino is clean and it was never very crowded, not even over the week end which I really appreciated. There was no cigarette smell to speak of even though smoking is allowed, I have no idea how they manage that. Our room had a beautiful view of the river. Be sure to ask for a room with a river view. Again the hotel is older, needs some renovation, but for the price it is not bad at all. There is no room service. Again the rooms are basic and the decor needs a facelift but we had a nice time. Laughlin is a very quiet place compared to Las Vegas. The regulars I would say are older couples looking to gamble in a more laid back atmosphere. If you want nightlife and excitement this is not it. Laughlin itself has not a lot to offer, but across the river is Bullhead City, which has more restaurants, stores, jet ski rentals, etc.

Nothing special here. The rooms and casino are old and in need of an upgrade but rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Restaurant and bars have limited operating hours so you have to go to other locations to get food and drinks. Gambling is limited to a few slot machines and very limited on table games, was there on a Tuesday afternoon and only had 1 blackjack table open and nothing else.

The River Palms is getting old and it appears little effort is put into maintenance or housekeeping. The grout on the bathroom floor was really discolored, there were lots of scuff marks and dings in the walls, and the clock was not working because it was unplugged and the maid didn't bother to plug it back in. My wife wouldn't stay here again but it was so inexpensive that I was OK with it on a "you get what you pay for" basis.

I stayed on May 26 and the room was nasty. My white bed spread had yellow stains on it. The sheet had black stains on them and the carpet was very dirty. The guest across the way from me had a bunch of kids that were running up and down the hall, their door stayed open until about 12am. No coffee makers in the room, no iron and ironing boards in the room. I even called for extra blankets and never got them. NEVER AGAIN WILL I STAY THERE!
