while some can say this place can use some upgrade, the historic nature of this place is outstanding, people that have stayed there - Teddy Roosevelt, babe ruth, kennedy, john wayne,, taft, kevin costner while filming dances with wolves., etc. does have a great steak place that serves outstanding breakfast at reasonable price.

Nice hotel. Rooms are small but quaint. Legends Steakhouse inside the hotel was amazing. Great food and nice ambiance. If you like to stay in historic places, you won't be disappointed, from the creaking staircase to the uneven hallways, you'll feel like you've gone back in time.

I have read a couple of comments about staying at this hotel. The first one I need to comment on is. The Door Man, (Bob), What a wonderful individual. Very helpful. When someone said that he was rude, I have a really hard time believing that. We have see him several times and each time he was always extremely courteous....

The doorman was rude, so that was not great. The casino is very clean, spacious, and bright. Compared to other casinos we saw, it was really nice. This IS a historic hotel, and the lobby and downstairs are very nicely refurbished, down to the ceilings in the lobby. The desk staff was nice. However, when we got in our room...

friendly check in staff! Rooms are decent for an older motel! Always a nice place to stay while in deadwood! The thing we didn't enjoy the most was the loud staff at 8am right outside of our door and their loud walkie talkies!

We came on a Saturday night and it was a hopping place! Table games were lively and the dealers were all very nice. It was my first time playing blackjack and they all helped me understand some strategy. Hubs played the slots and had a good time doing so. Cocktail waitress was kind and kept the beer plentiful!! We're hoping...

The initial impression of this place is really a good one, especially if you are a fan of older buildings with character. The lobby has sparkling chandeliers, tons of warm woodwork throughout the lobby, an enormous fireplace, large, expansive stairway, marble pillars, great architectural features everywhere you look! And then we checked into our room. The bathroom was sufficient, but...

A bargain especially if you love old charm! New Television. Clean. Friendly staff. A short walk to the casino action! I'm sure I will stay there at the Silverado/Franklin again. Breakfast burrito was fantastic.

The lobby is beautiful, the gentleman that hold the door are so sweet, and the restaurant (Legends) is outstanding. The rooms, however, are sooooo outdated, there's obviously issues with the maintenance of the rooms. Our bathroom ceiling was, literally, peeling off. It was quite noisy and super musty smelling (and, cherry on top, you can't open the window). For $30,...
