    I am staying at the Gold Spike for the first time Thur-Wed 21-27 and I was wondering about few things.
    Do the flat screen TV's have a HDMI port so I can watch movies from my laptop?
    Is the wi-fi in the rooms good enough to watch a movie from Netflix?
    What rooms/floors would be the best to ask for?
    Anything to avoid in the casino?
    Is there anything in the casino to look forward to?
    Any good Video Poker?
    What are the best deals in the Casino?
    Thanks

    Q:Do the flat screen TV's have a HDMI port so I can watch movies from my laptop?

    A:As far as I know you should have no problems connecting your laptop to the TV via HDMI...as long as you can toggle between the settings with the remote which usually is very basic.

    Q:Is the wi-fi in the rooms good enough to watch a movie from Netflix?

    A: I haven't stayed at GS in a matter of months but when I was there a couple months ago I had no problems watching Netflix.

    Q:What rooms/floors would be the best to ask for?

    A: They have a couple of suites in the main tower. One has a pool table and i believe the other has a stripper pole. Other than that most of the rooms are pretty much the same. Try to get a tower room rather than an oasis room. The Oasis rooms are smaller and you have to go outside to get to them.

    Q:Anything to avoid in the casino?

    A: As of right now I'd avoid the slots altogether. They are working on getting TITO but it is not in place yet so each slot win or even if you're losing bad on 1 machine and want to move to another requires a Hand Pay.

    Q:Is there anything in the casino to look forward to?

    A:Cheap Drinks, Cheap Food, 3/2 Black Jack

    Q:What are the best deals in the Casino?
    A: As far as??????

    Hope this helps you out.

    Can or do they print out boarding passes if asked?

    I always prefered a top floor wrap around baclony suite facing fremont street when I could. I believe drinks are 1.50 at the bar but don't quote me on that because it's been a while (hell they used to be 50 cents).

    They have cheap food in their coffee shop. 8.99 prime rib, and a 12 dollar steak and potato.

    As for the boarding passes I am not sure they do that but they are a small hotel so it never hurts to ASK. Folks who work here are usually REALLY friendly because hardly anyone ever plays in the casino.

    Ice Machines I have no clue about.

    The rooms are fine, you wont be impressed, but they will be functional.
    The rest. is cheap and edible, very good prices, but you wont be impressed.
    The casino is clean, the employees are friendly, but because of the all hand pay situation, almost no one plays the slots other than at the bar, you wont be impressed.
    The table games consist of 4 tables, usually only 2 are open, the dealers are friendly but you will likely be playing by yourself, you wont be impressed.

    As far as your questions go, I would rather look south at the street than into the parking lot on the other side, only 3 or 4 floors so which floor is not really a difference. drinks will be about the cheapest around, but are you really going to hang out there when all the action is a block away on fremont st?

    Thanks for the info, I doubt I will be spending much time there except to sleep.

    No ice machines on the floors unless it has changed recently. You have to get ice at the bar.
