Low Cost Accomadations

Had a hockey tournament and needed a Cheap place to stay. At less than $150 bucks for 3 nights Thurs, Fri and Sat for 2 people I took my chance. It is a pretty run down place but we were not there for dinner or playing slots. Room had two older queen beds and a view of Ogden Street.

Unique Quality: Room was fairly clean and staff was nice and helpful. Did not stick around just used hotel for food, gaming or drinking. Had $1 beer and tequila shots but never had the need to stick around.

Directions: Just one block off Freemont Street experience.

Best deal in town

I found Gold Spike Hotel and Casino on Travelocity. First of all, if you are trying to find a place to impress your girlfriend (or boyfriend), this is not for you. But if you are like me and all you need is a comfortable and inexpensive place close by to rest after sightseeing whole day in Vegas, this is absolutely the best deal in town. Heck, it's even cheaper than the hostel. I only paid $19 plus tax per week night and it came with complimentary breakfast. For weekend it may be slightly more but wouldn't be much.

Think of it as Motel 6 with a casino and you get the idea. The hotel is old but kept clean. According to other reviews I read, they also have suit (with kitchen) if you are interested. It's located only 1 block northeast of Fremont Street Experience. There are also a couple of drugstores (Walgreen?) within walking distance so it's a lot easier to shop the normal stuff (bottle water, newspaper, etc.) than on the Strip. From Gold Spike the bus stop to the Strip is only 1 block away, so transportation is not an issue.

Unique Quality: The front desk didn't ask me if I care for a smoke-free room, so I assume they allow guests to smoke in all their rooms. This is a common problem in most downtown hotels, which used to allow smoking anywhere. Even after converting some of their rooms to non-smoking, they can't completely get rid of the cigarette smell.

This is a very modestly priced hotel(they don't inflate rates for week ends & holidays).Your stay does include breakfast or a 2for1 dinner.There is no fee for parking, there's also no valet. The rooms are large and clean.The bath room is totaly enclosed for t hose of us who like privacy. The Casino is small but comprehensive and has the latest in gaming. You'll be situated between the Lady Luck & El Cortez casinos and only one block from the Fremont Street Experience. This isn't the place for those who go to Vegas for an "up-scale" experience.

Directions: Down town, one block no. of Fremont with access from LasVegas Blvd. or Main St.

My first hotel when I went to Vegas.
It's a while since I stayed here but I doubt it's changed much.

One of the older hotels downtown (which has been done up and made much nicer of late).

The down side is that most of the attractions are further down the strip which means a bus ride which can get warm in the summer and 30mins+ if the traffic is bad.

The inside has a small bar meets casino which leads in to a 24-hour diner. When you book you get either a free breakfast or lunch, certainly nothing special but again - it's cheap and included in the cost. Although the apple pie was nice and the drinks are cheap -you certainly notice you aren't in a strip hotel when it comes to prices.

It is a little shabby looking and you may feel a little out of place if you walk round all dressed up. But all that makes for interesting stories like when security thought I was a hooker, which leads me to the state that I always felt safe despite the shady looking characters sitting at the bar. Security is always close by.

For all it's faults, it's cheap, quircky and if I was on a tight budget I'd go back.

Unique Quality: Cheap if on a budget.

Directions: Downtown
