Laughlin, Nevada - Pioneer Casino
After hearing many people complain about burned out lighting on the iconic River Rick sign we walked past recently to check it out.
River Rick and Vegas Vic comparisonn
On the Laughlin skyline River Rick it is one of the most noticeable attractions, both from the River and the Casino Drive Strip itself.
The other side of the sign is lit up slighly more, but from a distance the silhouette wouldn't look as it should. On this side the place is called a HOTEL AMBLI HALL.
This state of despair, in this writers opinion, shows a lack of pride and management. Certainly it is no way to present a first image and impression of your Hotel and Casino. Visitors seeing the burnt out sign may wonder about the quality of the rest of the property. That topic will be saved for another post.
The other side of the same sign though has burned out letters. This looks terrible and speaks to the priorities and management of the property -or- perhaps the financial situation of the owners.
In general the Pioneer seems to keep their section of the Riverwalk in pretty good shape. Well groomed, landscaped, large lights lining it all work, and clean. They even have periodically stained the wood rails. The clock is apparently broken though and displays the wrong time.
Sometimes it is attention to details that count. Prompt attention. For instance a sign that is placed at the entrance to their section of the Riverwalk (just past the Colorado Belle) has been torn and hanging for a couple weeks. No one can fix or take this down?
The Pionerr Hotel and Casino was purchased in 2004 by its current owner Archon Corporation. See their stock performance here http://www.bloomberg.com/quote/ARHN:US
We implore them to take pride in the area. Restore River Rick and their signage with some new bulbs or repairs. Help improve the visual aspect of the Laughlin Riverwalk, Casino Drive, and even your Hotel.
