For $14 a night, a room next to the river, and no resort fees this was the best bet I've ever put on hotel gambling, as I've never stayed here before.
Like many things, you often get what you pay for in a hotel room, especially in the bed condition. So in reserving something for $14 I was super nervous, but in the end very pleasantly surprised. The bed was comfortable enough to get a good night's sleep. I actually liked the old west decor of the rooms, and the laid back feel to the New Pioneer Hotel and Casino. I also think that the Pioneer has the best section of the river walk with manicured grass and awesome lamps at night.
