I need to choose between Gold Spike, Golden Gate, Four Queens, El Cortez, Fitzgeralds, Gold Coast, Sun Coast or Terribles. I'm traveling alone and staying for three nights. I don't need anything too nice. Clean sheets, no roaches, and a working T.V are about all I need, but since these hotels are about the same price it would be nice to get the best one. I am on my way home to Texas after traveling for the last three months, so I don't really have to be close to the action, I just need to kill a few days because I get to LA right before Thanksgiving and plane tickets home are really expensive that weekend, I'm actually saving money by spending three nights in Vegas. Scary neighborhoods and dirty casinos don't bother me either, I've played at The Western and the bulk of my gambling has been in Shreveport. Being close to a bus stop would be nice. Also, if there is a hotel in this price range ($25) I'm missing that anyone thinks is a better bet please let me know.
If you have an American Casino Guide, you can get Gold Spike for $7.77 weekdays.
Wizard, thanks for your input, and thanks for The Wizard of Odds, you've saved me a ton of money playing cards.
You can call them, mention the coupon (the "$7.77 coupon"), and they will tell u if it is good for the date(s) you need, and then buy the book, though it has come to my attention that the new guide may not have the Gold Spike coupon, so unless you can get the old 2010 one, you may be out of luck. Sorry if I steered you in the wrong direction.
Thanks a lot for the help. I will see if I can find a list of coupons for the new edition. Even the chance of getting an $8 hotel room is worth looking in to.
