My husband and I spent 3 nights here and were very satisfied with our stay. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean. The mini fridge was handy and we loved the kuerig too. The only downside is the location but they offer a ride to the casino from the hotel part and , of course, if you want to...

We stayed at First Gold Hotel in Deadwood and would definitely stay there again. The rooms were small, but immaculately clean. The desk staff was friendly and check in went quickly. The breakfast buffet at their facility was excellent and quite reasonable.

This hotel was very clean and recently renovated. My room had new paint and new carpet. Bathroom needed minor cosmetic work but very very clean. The room also had a microwave and fridge with complimentary bottled water which was nice. The hotel has an odd layout with three different buildings which was confusing for some guests.

Our motel room was great - clean, roomy. But the Heater was so loud it kept me up most of the night. It clanged really loud. The casino was a little ways away from the rooms, but there was shuttle and it was extremely fast and very nice people. Breakfast was excellent. People are very friendly.

Stayed overnight on a quick trip. Room was clean & comfy for the price. The noise from surrounding rooms is obvious so if you have loud neighbors (we did about 1 am 😧) don't expect to get much sleep unless you can sleep through anything. Upon arrival we had a stopped up toilet, but notified the front desk & they...
