Resort Fees, WiFi and Parking in Laughlin

Laughlin, NV

Effective May 2018 

As of July 2018, 
Harrah's Laughlin, Edgwater, 
Colorado Belle, Riverside and Aquarius have resort fees. 

While Casinos and Hotels on the Las Vegas strip are adding parking fees, limiting comped drinks, and increasing Resort Fees, Laughlin has so far escaped this trend.    
As of today*, just ONE Laughlin Casino/Hotel property has a Resort Fee.   Guess which one?
Parking is free at all Casinos in Laughlin.

This includes Valet parking, which you should be tipping to use anyway.  

Free In Room WiFi is available in four of the Laughlin Casino-Hotels.  These are:
Aquarius, Golden Nugget, Avi, and Laughlin River Lodge 
At the Edgewater and Colorado Belle, In Room WiFi is $9.99 per 24 hour period.
At the Riverside Resort, In Room WiFi is $8.99 per night, but waived for Players Club levels Platinum or higher.
At the Pioneer, In Room WiFi is $4.95 per night.

At the Tropicana Laughlin In Room WiFi is $7.99 per night. 
And finally, at Harrah's Laughlin, WiFi is included in the resort fee of $13.44.  The resort fee is waived for Players Club levels Diamond and above.   Harrah's Laughlin, who is part of Caesars Entertainment, is the only property with a Resort Fee in Laughlin.   Oddly enough, in the low rate season this can be more than half of the cost of a room rate.   So far they still have not implemented the timed drink system at their Casino bars.  We would not be surprised to see that happen in 2017.  
How long will it be before the other Laughlin Casinos join the Aquarius, Golden Nugget, Avi, and Laughlin River Lodge and offer Free In Room WiFi?   

Given a choice, with all other things being equal, we would not choose to stay where we were required to pay a Resort Fee.   If In Room WiFi access is important we would also stay away from those who charge.  Over the course of a few days these fees can add up.  A few of the Casinos listed who do charge a In Room WiFi fee have it available in the common/public areas of their Casino.

If you have stayed at a Laughlin, NV. Hotel recently and found differences in the availablity or charges for WIFI or Resort Fees please contact us with details.  We would love to here them.
