I've been using a Schwalbe Marathon Plus 26X1.5 when using my mountain bike on a trainer, it's holding up well so far.

Buy the cheapest slick you can find. Trainers are quite hard on tires.

I have used some Performance Forte slicks that I got for $5.99. I agree for this purpose all you need is a cheap one.

That's what I was going to say - look in Nashbar and Performance for their house brand MTB slicks.
