NileGuide Expert tip:
Recently renovated, this budget-priced hotel casino offers great deals on its rooms.
The Gold Spike in downtown Las Vegas underwent an extensive remodeling that seeks to change the little casino's reputation as a smoky Old Vegas holdout. The new room decor is modern, the hotel has been expanded, and their prices are still low.
Rooms feature a king or two queen beds, flat screen TV, and iPod docking station. A new pool area includes the new Vegas standards of cabanas and tropical ambiance. One diner is available onsite, but guests can easily eat at any of the downtown restaurants.
The Fremont Street Experience is right out the front door, and visitors who don't mind walking can probably skip renting a car. With the upper portion of Fremont Street restricted to pedestrian access, walking is the easiest way to get around.
