Friendly staff to check us in and the owners were friendly, available and offered good tips on what to see in the area and where to eat. The rooms were nice, comfortable beds and pillows, great shower! Would definitely stay here again if visiting the area. We visited in late October so extremely quiet because the summer tourist season had...

We stayed two nights with our 14 year old daughter. We loved the ambiance but, she thought it was a little dated. Our visit to Devils Tower and near by attractions was perfect! the room we stayed in was a suite overlooking the main street. The beds were comfy and the staff was very nice. If you can't haul your...

We greatly enjoyed this converted city hall. All the rooms were period correct with modern amenities. We wanted to stay a second time on our return trip from vacation, but to our regret they were fully booked. Great history and a great price. I recommend seeking it out if you are in the Black Hills area

I stayed at the Town Hall Inn and I have a reservation to stay there again in June. This place is incredibly well preserved and the rooms are big. It was a municipal building in bygone days, so the rooms are former offices of the mayor and various other important people. When I stayed there I had a second floor...

This was one of two accommodations on our trip about which we'd had some reservations before our trip having been disappointed in other 'quirky' places in the past. We needn't have worried. We were warmly greeted by the friendly owner, shown to our lovely room and made comfortable. The building is charming and has been lovingly refurbished/restored to make a...

What a warm, kind review! thank you truly for taking the time to review our place! The beds have a memory foam topper - I'm sorry to hear that not everyone slept well. Thank you for graciously alerting us to the housekeeping issue - you were most kind for letting us resolve the issue quickly, (We were, indeed, mortified to...

For our honeymoon, we wanted to check out the tourist attractions of the black Hills, from devil's tower to Mt. Rushmore and beyond! We picked Lead because it was surrounded by these attractions! The Town Hall Inn was absolutely amazing!!!! Full of history and very peaceful! We loved the view from our window of the open pit mine! The staff...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! More and more lovebirds choose to stay at our quaint Inn while celebrating their love! Could it be the waterfalls nearby or the Black Hills with all of their romantic trails meandering to secret rock outcroppings and lookouts? Whatever the reason you decided to stay with us, we sure are glad you did!

I don't give five stars often in reviews, but the Town Hall Inn is certainly deserving of this rating. We stayed here for two nights in a row. Our room was located in the old mayor's office, and contained a king-size bed and was on the main floor. The room was large and the ceiling was at least 12 feet...

We truly appreciate you taking the time to write such a well written and thorough review of our (soon to be 105 year old) gem. We're so happy that you took a stroll through Lead - I agree - our restaurants, shops, buildings and people are pretty darn great! Only drawback... look both ways before crossing the street (for deer...

My wife and I wanted a few days away for our anniversary, and our original trip fell through--so we decided on the Lead-Deadwood area. The Town Hall Inn looked charming and had great reviews, so we decided to give it a try. This is one of the best places we have ever stayed in anywhere. Friendly, attentive staff, terrific concept...

This place was great --very clean and a lot of history. Great find. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed it very much. We would definitely recommend to everyone. It was centrally located to everything we were going to do.
