The Skinny

As of April 14th, 2013, The Gold Spike Hotel Las Vegas is off to the Casino Boy Graveyard. This hotel was bought for Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project. We're not sure yet what the CEO of Zappos or the Downtown Project has in mind for the property yet, but Casino Boy will keep you posted on the news for this Downtown Las Vegas hotel property.

Room Quality:

The Gold Spike Hotel Las Vegas has closed as of April 14th, 2013. For those who had already made reservations, Gold Spike will offer stays at it's sister locations: The Rumor, Resort at Mount CHarleston, or The artisan. 

Service Quality:

Before this hotel closed, the prices are low and you got more than you pay for..Casino Boy is definitely sad to lose this gem.

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom:

For now, Gold Spike Hotel Las Vegas is closed so you probably won't find anything in the bathroom.

Clientele:

Since it's closed as of April 14th, 2013...so there won't be any clients at this Downtown Las Vegas hotel. 

How's the Pool?

The pool is fairly small and standard, but this is a small hotel so the amount of water seems to be just about right...plus since it's closed, there won't be anyone swimming in it. 

Resort Fee:

This Vegas hotel has closed as of April 14th, 2013...so there are no fees whatsoever since they're not taking any bookings.

Is it Worth It?

Gold Spike has closed. But it use to be worth it.

Wow! What an improvement!

What an improvement !!! My wife and I took my mother downtown to see the Freemont Street Experience when she came from the east coast to visit. Being an overly sensitive small town lady, she did not trust the shifty-eyed people who hang out on the sidewalks downtown. I remember distinctly as we passed by the Gold Spike how she grabbed my arm and put he purse between us saying something like, "I don't like the looks of those people."
That is gone for the most part and the Gold Spike has been so totally renovated that had you not seen it before, then you would swear that it could not have been the same place that was located on that corner in former years. In those past days that I spoke of, I was having fun with one of our sons who was of gaming age and I said, "Hey, just so that we can say that we did it, why don't we go to the Gold Spike and get one of those $1.99 breakfasts?" We did and it was an experience to say the least. The floors were dirty, the crowd eating there were low-lifes and some were very shabby looking, like they rolled out of the gutter. But, again, it is not anything like that today.
Fast forward to today and my son said that he wanted a quick, low cost prime rib dinner downtown. I went on my Google phone app and a few places popped up, among which was the Gold Spike. They offered a prime rib dinner with a baked potato, s/c & chives, and a veggie for $6.99. Let's give them another try, I said.
We booked it down there and found easy parking. The place looked clean, there were no bums hanging out on the sidewalk and once we entered, we were "Wowed." The whole place is bright, refurbished, good smelling, wisely coordinated, and the diner has been relocated to a different area. All of the seating is new the gaming machines are all new with very nice seating and it is as stunning of a makeover as what can be expected.
The meal was fabulous. Everything was cooked to perfection. I mean, how can you go wrong to have a complete prime rib dinner for the price of Carl Jr's Six Dollar Burger? It is that great and it is so great that there is no question that we will become return customers and recommending it to others. The rooms have all been upgraded and were comfortable.

“DO NOT STAY HERE , i was harrassed by the security unfairly.”

this hotel is really a motel. The security are rude and aggressive and i was wrongly assaulted . Its honky tonk and rough. the pool is nice, but its trashy people and drunkeness.

The internet does not work. there is a resort fee for a pool which only sees sunshine half of the day . there is no room service.

its hard to find parking often.

the staff are not the best. underwhelming actually and you have to call three times at least to get what you might need. Its the most difficult hotel i have ever stayed at. everything was hard , or not working properly, or no, we dont do that . its a motel pretending to be a hotel. but its really not.

it is close to the fremont experience, but its rough on the block of the hotel.

the rooms are nice and the price is great . but its rough.

Dont stay here.
