Wildwood Casino & Gold King Mountain Hotel
We made a last minute decision to go up to stay over night. I called a few different hotels and confirmed at the Gold King Mountain Hotel. We have stayed here before with points earned, so it was free. But this time we had to pay $72.00 and had a lovely room on the 2nd floor. It was as nice as any hotel we have stayed at all over the country. Even had a mint on the pillows! The rate included a free buffet breakfast = value $15.00 for the 2 of us. The hotel is off site from the casino and there is a shuttle to go anywhere in the town.
The 1st call I made for reservations was to the hotel at the Midnight Rose /JP McGill's / Brass Ass. I was told the rate was $92.00 plus a $50.00 security deposit. I asked what for and he said incidentals. Needless to say I was taken aback. Can't remember ever staying any place that required a deposit like that. Me - "What incidentals"? He couldn't give me a valid answer. So I told him that eventuality they have had theft and damage to the rooms and now require that deposit. Since that is the case it was not anyplace I wanted to stay.
We had a lovely time, I won $121 on a Phantom of the Opera penny slot machine at the Century Casino. A short trip like that, for less than 24 hours, is a great mini vacation without having to go so far from home.
