Theres a site that says that the gold spike is the best room deal in vegas and the reason is that the rooms are actaully decent and priced very low.. they do go on to say that the casino is the shits... Dont really care about the casino just want a clean decent room cheap.... Have any of the 2+2 posters stayed there..

Three years ago a tenant was bludgeoned to death in his room at the Gold Spike. I wouldn't recommend staying there. Besides, the only poker in the area is at Horseshoe. I'd stay at Maxim instead. It's pretty close to Bellagio and Mirage and very inexpensive.

The people that say that the Gold Spike is a good deal for the money also claim that Palace Station is a great bargain for the money and that the buffet is well above average.

Palace Station is a smelly dump and it's at least twice as much as the Gold Spike, so what does that tell you?

And the buffet at Palace Station is inedible garbage I wouldn't feed to my dogs.

I've been in the Gold Spike casino. Locals refer to it as the 'Copper Mine' because of the large area devoted to PENNY slot machines. Some friends of mine and I went there to check out the seemier side of vegas (we had suites at Caesar's and were very expensively dressed.)

What a dump. The place is full of degenerate gambling addicts who can't afford to gamble higher than a penny. Some of them look like they are perpetually torn between spending their last few cents to gamble or on a 50 cent well drink.

What a joke. We actually played penny slot machines with the rubes. We stood out like Steve Badger at a debutant ball. (Except in reverse.)

My friends and I were jerks. Everytime we won anything we would loudly exclaim "Cool! I just won 5 cents! Woohoo I am the penny slot MASTAH!'

One woman wasn't bright enough to see that we were being patronizing. She looked over at me and said 'I won eight fifty on this machine earlier today.'

WOW! Eight fifty? Time to load up the truck and move to Beverlee!

Hills that is....

Anyway, if you want a REAL bargain and don't mind finding dirty needles under the bed, head over to the Western! I think it's only 17 bucks a night, 365 days a year!

My punishment for being such an elitist jerk was that my Armani jacket was nearly ruined because of all the smoke, and because of a small splotch of pinkish green goo that I later discovered on the back.

just dont forget that everyone is different and has to find a place to fit in in life and the stakes they gamble for is not important. if it isnt what you like dont belittle them. but its ok to belittle the places as you are right some of those are dumps.
