Grand Canyon to Las Vegas

A travel blog entry by lisamcb


... effort for a woman in the 1930's. The watchtower is based on ancient Pueblo designs. It is a bit of a hike to the top, but very worth it. Great views of the Colorado River at this point. We ended the day with a long drive to Las Vegas. We are staying at Circus Circus and are feeling pretty overwhelmed by the colours and sounds. A late dinner followed by a much welcomed bed. Tomorrow, Hoover Dam and ...

Dinner at the Cake Boss Restaurant

A travel blog entry by 2gibsonclose


Managed a nice nights sleep, then had breakfast in the hotel. Had a little flutter on the one armed bandit then a walk down the Strip. Dinner was at Buddy V's Ristorante in our hotel and the pasta was really good. She Who Must Be Obeyed had chicken parmasan. Had to have a pudding there - lobster tail and cheesecake and some cannoli for ...

The lights of Las Vegas

A travel blog entry by mandmcorp


... done. It was a cross between our Avenue of Trees and the Farmers Grotto in Palmerston North but much much bigger. It was well worth the visit. They also had rides including a train and merry go round. The only blight was all the large advertising logos on all the trees as companies sponsor the trees. Some trees were very well done and others were quite clever in their design. The little houses and displays were great ...

Las Vegas

... strip. The architecture, marble and feel is simply beautiful and not all casino! We had a lovely romantic ride (i do have video but can't upload at the moment, as my phone wont link through - stupid internet, so will load as soon as I can) and then continued our wanderings, onto Caesers Palace and a few others. Again lots of walking - but very good and still can't believe ...

Vegas Day 7

A travel blog entry by angenunn


... Vegas. Holy ****. Whoever recommended that I need to say- thanks, and also what the ****! I know why it's called an experience. Aaron had been wondering where all the seedy underbelly of Vegas has been- the strip has been to clean, sober and devoid of many beggers. FOUND THEM. The light show on the roof is pretty cool- there is about 500m or so of interactive screening and it's pretty amazing, lights sound and ****. But the rest of it. Wow. Drunks dancing ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Gold Spike Hotel and Casino Las Vegas

    Bring some Febreeze


    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!


    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


    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


    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


    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)


    I also took a gamble with the Gold Spike, based on the review on 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


    Yes, this Casino cheats players.

    Well worth the price


    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!!!


    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


    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.
