The Lo-Fi Charm of Gold Spike

Thanks to a twit-tip from Friend of the Show @TheCosmicJester, today we consider the Lo-Fi charm of the Off-Fremont hotel and casino known as the Gold Spike. In particular, we examine the amenities that the Gold Spike includes in their guest rooms. Below is a screen capture, taken from their website, of their Deluxe Queen room inclusions.

Note that 120 volts of Nikola Tesla's newfangled "alternating current" comes standard. That's electricity, son. Feel free to bring all manner of small appliance, and Gold Spike will power them for you. Toaster oven? Power. Blender? Power. Hitachi Magic Wand? POWER. 240v electric clothes dryer? Ooh, sorry. They draw the line at 120 volts.

Look, we're not taking a cheap shot at Gold Spike. To the contrary. Their list of room amenities is awesome. If anything, they stopped short. Some additional suggestions:

- Ingress
- Egress
- Breathable Air
- Atoms
- Three Dimensions
- Tactile Surfaces
- Gravity

Offer not currently valid in portions of New Jersey and NYC.

I wonder if the toilet includes water and is able to flush?

Glad to know it comes with a kind bed, rather than, you know, an evil one.

Millions of points for the Tesla clip.

Hmmm. It has all the abiance of an old Motel 6.

Is the alarm the only light in the room? They don't mention lightbulbs anywhere...

I would assume the rooms are lit by candlelight.

Hokey website or not, I gotta love that place and everything it stands for. I hope it can hang on.

Did you watch the video? Ya gotta watch the video!
