We arrived in Deadwood early on the afternoon of first stay and were given our rooms without a problem. We went to the bar to relax and the bartender was friendly and helped us with information on all great places to eat in the area. The common areas were all done in the colors of the period and the theme...

Thank you for your nice review, and for being our guest. There are typically no problems checking in "early" here, if the rooms are clean and ready for occupancy. We tried to maintain many of the Victorian features during our restoration, thank you for noticing. I will pass along your compliments to our staff, they try hard to provide excellent...

My husband and never go to Deadwood without booking this amazing inn! It is small and quiet. The front desk people go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is in walking distance to main street! Casino is fun and has some great games that you don't really see anymore. Our favorite part is the historic rooms....

Thank you for your nice review, and for being our repeat guest. Like you, many of our guests appreciate the small, quiet nature of our historic hotel, yet just steps away from Main Street.

Our stay was great and the staff was amazing! Adam checked us in, and was also our bartender and casino cashier. He was friendly and we had quite a few laughs with him.

We had a great stay here because of the friendly staff. Would definitely come back. The room was very reasonably priced as well due to the slow week day. Upon arriving and checking in, we ultimately decided to spend our trip only at the hotel because we enjoyed our experience so much.

Thank you for your kind words, and for being our guest. In addition to our historic hotel, there are many fine lodging options in our town.

We dropped in for lunch during the Mustang rally.

We went to Deadwood to experience the old west vibe and this historic hotel was a perfect fit. Its not too fancy, it honors its historic past and the little restaurant attached was a great breakfast spot! I really liked that it was so close to everything, we could walk everywhere we wanted to go.

My husband and I had never been to South Dakota before so planning our trip to Deadwood was a brand new experience.
