Historical Traveler Reviews Gold Spike Hotel and Casino Las Vegas

Bring some Febreeze

from

Be sure to bring a lot of Febreeze and breath mints, because once you step in this hole, the smell is absorbed into every thread of clothing, every pore in your skin, and the air is so foul of stale smoke, it sometimes hurts to breath. There are about 4 black jack tables, but atleast they're cheap ($2 minimum) but the cocktail waitresses are not very punctual, but atleast they have the 20 oz beers. If you just need a bed, and you don';t care where you sleep, then go for it, but it is truly a dive, but atleast its walking distance to 4 Queens and Golden Nugget. $20 cab ride top the strip.

Absolutely Disgusting!

from

This is the worst hotel I have ever seen in my life!! As soon as you walk inside the smelll of stale smoke almost knocks you out, old empty beer bottles laying around, broken slot machines laying in pieces, we couldnt even bring ourselves to check in!!! We lost our money but it was no sad loss.PITYFUL!

The Golden Spike The Different Side of Las Vegas

from

This is a very off the wall place. And I loved it. The place is full of stale smoke and spilled booze. And from time to time you have to move a homeless drunk out of your way so you can go into the Hotal Casino. But to me this is Las Vegas the way it should be. Lots of smoke and cheap BlackJack!! The staff is cool, no fancy uniforms and bright red vests.

The drinks take forever to get but they get their. A tip can cut the time down by 15min or so. It so different from all the fancy Strip resorts and thats what I like about it. So go in light up a smoke sip on a screwdriver(which is really cheap vodka and watered down TANG).

and relax and enjoy the different side of Las Vegas.

Good Stay

from

I stayed at the Gold Spike on 08/19/03. The room was clean, albeit slightly threadbare, but for the price, it couldn't be beat. The employees were friendly, and I had a great time playing in the Copper Mine penny slot section of the casino. With the Fremont Street Experience just one block away, the location is nice and also greatly accessible from the Downtown Transportation Center allowing one to save on cab fares. I'll very likely return to the "Spike".

This Place Sux

from

What are these people talking about? This place totally sucked. The environment was similar to what I would find in the Bronx. Poor air circulation, no front desk to check in, no car drop-off, room was disgusting, worn out sheets, dining area was sick looking, etc.... Location was 1 block away from the gang banger area of town. My cab driver informed me on several occasions on the trip from the airport to the hotel not to cross the street. Anyway, best decision you could make...don't go there.

This place is a trip! (Love it)

from

I also took a gamble with the Gold Spike, based on the review on CheapoVegas.com. The Gold Spike was everything they said itd be.My suite was huge. My only complaints are that the TV was small and only got broadcast channels. And, the air conditioner had all it could do to keep up with the 110 degree mid-day temperature.The casino was seedy and ultra cool. I had more fun playing three-dollar black jack than I can remember at any other casino, on the strip or not. The people playing in the casino were just a lot of fun.The food and drinks are ridiculously cheap. If youre interested in food go to the Main Street Station for the buffet. Very close to Freemont. A cheap fun weekend place to stay.

Good room / Legal Cheating by the Casino

from

Yes, this Casino cheats players.

The room was fine for the $36 price, clean and quiet.

You have seen on TV how players try to cheat the Casinos. Now this is the palce where you can see how the Casinos cheat the players!

Just sit down on a blackjack table and change a twenty, ask for silver and bet only silver. Play as you as you always do. Now watch for the casino cheating. If one person is beating the house this is where the fun begins. The Casino is going to do everything leagally they can to cheat you.

Here is what to look for: a dealer busts once and is replace by another waiting dealer. A dealer that is losing the house money is only on the table a short time. A dealer that is taking in all your money is left on the table indefinately. The Casino will only change cards after one round is played (why didn't they deal the rest of the deck?) This Hotel/Casino changes dealers and cards only to defeat the player, not for any other reason.

If you see a casino floor person that looks pregnant, don't ask her when the baby is coming. She is just fat and thinks your insulting her.

Do not flash any large bills around this Hotel/Casino because it is filled with street scum. The scum is not allowed to use the hotel rooms. If any one asks you for money notify Security. Forget wearing your diamonds and gold it is too risky!!!

Well worth the price

from

I also went by a recomendation from "cheapo las vegas". I was not disappointed, My wife only won more at one other downtown casino, yeah it was a little dirty but the rooms were better than expected.

We did not eat their (locals control all tables cause the food is so cheap), but the drinks also a real bargain and stiff... Bottom line is this, can 3 people stay 4 nights including Fri & Sat for $125.00 anywere else???

This place rocks!!!

from

Its been awhile but in sept. of 1994 my wife and i stayed at the gold spike in downtown las vegas for 22.00 a night you get free meal coupons for each night of your stay! it can't be beat! and best of all!if you want to upgrade to a suite its 32.00 a night weekdays and 36.00 a night on weekends!! wow!!! 5 stars ***** we'll be back!!!!

A Clean, Quiet, Really Cheap Suite

from

I stayed at the Gold Spike in June on the advice of the cheapovegas web site. While the Casino itself is a bit of culture shock, the rooms, especially the top floor suites ($36 per night) are a great deal. My friend stayed in one of the regular rooms ($27), which was okay. But I stayed in a suite. It was quite large. There was a small living area, two beds, and a bathroom. I've stayed at much pricer hotels that were much noisier. The Gold Spike is constructed of concrete bricks, which reduces a lot of the neighbor noise. If you stay at the Gold Spike, reserve over the web for a discount and ask for a suite in the back of the building, away from Ogden. My friends room was on Ogden and she said it was okay, but it was quieter in my suite in the back. In summary, you could do a lot worse in Las Vegas for the money. Sleep at the Gold Spike, and take your savings with you as you enjoy the rest of Vegas.
