We spent 4 nights here and we were lucky to be in the main hotel, there are 3 sections. Ours had a small casino and was quite comfortable. A breakfast buffet was included daily (we were on a bus trip, so I'm not sure if this is included in the price of the room) and it was outstanding. Homemade omelets,...

Hotel was older, but in good shape. The front desk personnel were friendly. Getting to the room as a bit clumsy and our window looked directly into the parking ramp. That said, the room was comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. As an added plus- the slots were decently loose in the casino!

This was a very nice hotel and staff were very accommodating. Food was excellent....both breakfast buffet and dinner. Nice walk from hotel to Deadwood town. Enjoyed replay in saloon of Wild Bill Hickcock and also shoot-out in street. Recommend taking the guided tour of Deadwood.

I got the room off hotwire which had it rated as a 3 star and lists hotels like Sheraton, Wingate, and Embassy suites as examples. If this place is on that same class then I am in the same class as George Clooney and Brad Pitt. This would be based on. 1 we are all male, 2. We are all...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. However, all of our facilities have elevators. Did you use the refrigerator or the microwave in your room ?

We are at this moment in our room here, our first of two nights because my wife is here for a conference, and I am listening to the conversations in rooms on either side of us. I will wear ear plugs to sleep tonight.

Parking and access to building not very good. Room was average looking at a rock wall out the window. When checking in there was a sign at the front desk saying it will be a while. "Shift change in progress". Are you kidding me? What kind of customer service is that? Waited for about 10 minutes to check in. No...

Overall, we had a very nice stay. The decor in the common areas is dated, but the rooms seemed more recently updated. They were very clean, and included a microwave, refrigerator, and all of the usual room amenities. I believe we were in building three, up on the hill. We had a King room with only a view of the...
