Hotels in Rest of Nevada

Owners of Vegas’s legendary Golden Nugget spent millions creating an eponymous tropical-themed resort in Laughlin. Ask for a room with a river view.

Forget that it was once considered a destination wedding location for members of some polygamist sects in Utah; visit the hotel for its high mineral-content waters, which fill in-room spa tubs as well as the springs around the property.

The delightfully kitschy, 472-room resort has packed in the waterfalls, gardens, and pools to help you forget you’re in the middle of the desert. You won’t forget completely, but the place is a bargain.

Howard Hughes once spent several weeks at the 20-room property. Today, the hotel’s been fully restored to its original 1930s self, and you can channel other famous guests, including Bette Davis, Will Rogers, James Cagney, and Boris Karloff.

The former Reno Hilton has 2,005 huge rooms and suites, two Charlie Palmer restaurants, and amazing prices.

The Primm Valley Resort & Casino isn’t Vegas, but it has comfy rooms, a perfectly respectable swimming pool, entertainment from some not-quite-forgotten headliners, and even 36 holes of golf designed by Tom Fazio.
