The western part of the USA offers a good blend of urban and nature with posh shops, glitzy casinos, and clubs, as well as a rugged desert, relaxing ridge, and lakes.

From families on a much-awaited trip to busy career people looking forward to some R&R, there is always a perfect hotel in which everyone can stay.

Hotels in Laughlin

Many Laughlin casino hotels are found along the river, such as Tropicana Express Hotel & Casino, Harrah’s Laughlin Hotel & Casino, and Avi Resort & Casino Hotel.

All of these properties have facilities for relaxation, like a spa and lounge, in addition to their elegant guest rooms. Laughlin River Lodge is also a tourist favorite with facilities on par to casino hotels, like a pool, casino, fitness center, and spa.

Those who want to spend less may want to check out hotels that are a short drive from the ski resorts, like 968 Park Hotel, Tahoe Beach & Ski by Diamond Resort, and Avalon Lodge.

Hotels in Henderson

The nearest city to escape traffic and crowds in Las Vegas is Henderson yet hotels in the area still continue the vibe when it comes to gambling and other forms of entertainment. Many of these hotels have casinos, bars, and pools.

If you are looking for a family-friendly luxury resort, retreat to Green Valley Ranch Resort. The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa is another indulging accommodation in Henderson.

Hotels in Reno

Reno is a family-friendly destination with a good mix of activities to enjoy outdoors courtesy of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. That being said, it will still remind you of Las Vegas with flashy casinos and nightclubs, as well as wedding chapels.

If you’re staying with little ones, try the Grand Sierra Resort offering a wide array of child activities.  Want to do something physical? Stay at Whitney Peak Hotel. Outside the hotel is the world’s tallest climbing wall as well as an indoor bouldering park.

Hotels in Bend

Those who want to get out of the casino-filled cities of Nevada and enjoy the outdoors and nature should visit Bend.  This Oregon city is like an adventure playground and a cosmopolitan city all rolled into one. Hotels in Bend range from pocket-friendly to luxury resorts.

For budget hotels, try Holiday Motel, Rodeway Inn & Suites, and Dunes Motels, all of which are in close proximity to top attractions. The Oxford Hotel Bend is an elegant and stylish accommodation with a long list of facilities and definitely worth the price. If you wish to be close to hiking trails and other outdoor activities, stay at the Pine Ridge Inn.

Looking for the best stay in these cities won’t take much of your time as there are plenty of options that will suit your interests.
