This is a nice hotel. Pleasant and quick check in. Parking was sufficient in their own parking garage that accommodated our truck and bike trailer. Room was clean and updated. Coffee convenient to the room available for free. The only very small inconvenience was that the food and casino was in a different building, a bit of a hilly walk...

Greetings, and thanks for taking the time to post a review! We're glad that the large parking structure we have was helpful and that you enjoyed your room! We hope you come back, and if you do - please note that we have on-site staff who run golf carts from the hotels on the terrace to the casinos and restaurant.

We just stayed at First Gold in Deadwood during Mardi Gras weekend. I booked this hotel based on positive reviews and most importantly FREE CANCELLATION!! We drove 3.5 hours to get there with unpredictable weather, so we really needed the option to cancel. The front desk staff, 2 friendly ladies, were very welcoming and informative. We were in our room...

At the time of this writing, there are 4 weekend buffets in Deadwood- all the same features ( Prime & Crab) and all are about the same. This is the best of the 4, in my opinion. They stay on top of fresh hot food in the hot buffet, the salad bar & the desert bar are good and the...

If you are interested in the gambling, some portions of this facility are 100 yards or so away from the casino and restaurant. The rooms were "motel" type rooms and just ok. Rooms seemed to be clean, although well used.

Greetings - we appreciate your review. The First Gold property does consist of three different hotel structures; please note that there are on-site personnel who run golf carts between the buildings for our guests' convenience.

First Gold is a perfectly fine hotel for the money. It was reasonably cheap, very clean, had a casino in it, and the staff was all awesome. The best parts were the friendly and helpful staff, and the value. The worst part wasn't a huge deal, but there are separate buildings, so you might be lodged a little ways away...

There was only a shower in the room what was absolutely o.k. with me.Air-conditioning and a very nice bed. Not to soft or to hard. The...

A pleasant hotel room with comfortable beds. Like many other hotels the reading light is in the middle, between two king beds. If you sleep on the other side you are out of luck. The breakfast room was in a separate building (problem in bad weather) but the food was luxurious.

They provide very clean rooms that are reasonably priced and very quiet. The beds were comfortable and linens clean. There was no breakfast included with the room however the hotel offered reasonably priced breakfasts. The parking was convenient and staff courteous. A good value for the money.

Nice Hotel staff all that we encountered were very nice & helpful. Yes the hotel is 3 buildings total, two of which are up an incline from the main building. But if you are able to walk without any issues then this is nothing to walk back & forth. Otherwise they have a golf cart shuttle to take you from...
