Comfortable, Convenient and Clean!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 24, 2012

Our weekend stay was exceedingly comfortable and I am very happy that we opted to stay in The Golden Nugget. It is one of the smaller hotels in Laughlin and not quite so bustling as some of the others we visited during our stay. Not once did we have a line up to eat, play, shop, or check-in or check-out. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. The pillows were small but there were lots of them so it did not create an issue. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The lobby is inviting with its lush green gardens and running stream. The location, right across the street from a karaoke bar was perfect. Prior to retiring for the night, we had a great deal of fun sitting out front of the hotel and listening to the sometimes struggling (or maybe more appropriately, strangling) vocals ring out from the karaoke bar. They played the music outside as well as inside. It was also pleasant to sit out back and enjoy the beautiful view of the Colorado River and stroll along the River Walk.

We only ate a couple of meals at Harlow's in the Golden Nugget and did not try any of the other restaurants. The food at Harlow's was good, plentiful and not unreasonable ($7 US for breakfast) but we did find better deals on meals elsewhere. The Colorado Belle, for example, had an awesome steak dinner special that included a 16oz T-bone, baked potato, large salad, and 16oz draft for only $13 US and a $4.99 US breakfast buffet.

We personally intend to stay at this hotel should we again return to Laughlin because we like the pace - it is smaller and a little less crowded than some of the other hotels.

Unique Quality: Ample covered parking attached to the hotel so there is no need to walk any distance from hotel to car.

Very cute, thatch roofed cabanas available for rent at the outside pool.

Easy access to the Water Taxi that will ferry you from casino to casino along the Colorado. (Down the escalator in the casino and out the back)

Live musical entertainment in the lounge; although not elaborate a show as some of the other casinos, the lone saxophone player/singer on stage during our visit was a joy to listen to and if you like to dance, there was plenty of room.

Honestly, I have never seen tile floors shine like they do in this hotel. Sparkling clean!

Nice Little Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 11, 2009

I come to Laughlin, NV once a month for business and I have stayed at all of the hotels on Casino Dr. I personally like the Golden Nugget the best because although it is a little older, it is cozy and has 2 good restaurants. (Saltgrass Steakhouse, Joe's Crab shack) and a starbucks. The casino is small to medium size for a Laughlin casino, but they have low minimums ($3 Roulette Min.) The rooms are a little better than Harrah's (which I feel is the 2nd best on the Laughlin strip). The parking garage is close to the elevators and I've never really had anything to complain about. The Harrah's bad points are the long check-in lines and long elevator lines.

Unique Quality: Good River View, Spacious bathrooms, low Min. casinos, Starbucks, Saltgrass Steakhouse, Joe's Crab shack

Directions: Laughlin Casino Strip on the Colorado River

A jewel of a casino ....

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 9, 2005

Joyce didnt' have much to say about the Golden Nuggett, but we did spend time wandering about and hitting the tables for a short bit :)

They have a decent parking garage, but extremely limited van accessible handicapped parking.

Though we didn't loose at the tables, we didn't exactly win either :) They gladly took our chips from neighboring casinos, so we didn't have to add more cash to our pot. Our dealers were friendly, helpful and fun - yes fun .. as was the pit boss on duty :) We were there for only an hour and a half - so really can't judge the overall casino from that short of a visit but, compared to some other tables ...... definitely worth a stop :)

Unique Quality: They have 2 small waterfalls in the entry, surrounded by greenery. This leads into the casino. We wandered about, and took time to look into a couple of shops, and to enjoy the free animatronic show ...... a variety of fake macaws in a golden cage who sing the blues ... definetly cute! Across from the birds is a $10 store w/ watches, purses, shawls/wraps, and other items .... nice enough that I even bought a few things while there .... :)

The Golden Nugget

by written on August 24, 2002

My favorite place to stay and one of the nicer hotels/casinos. Decorated in a tropical theme, the entrance has a tropical atrium emulating a rainforest (not all plants are real though).

Weekdays $25 per night

Weekends $55 per night

Unique Quality: Cocktail service was great while gambling. No watered down drinks and fast, efficient service. I am not much of a drinker but my friend had one too many white russians.
There are 4 restaurants and an ice cream parlor.
