The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. There is a nice size fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Interactions with all the staff was very positive; everyone was friendly and helpful. Potential downside for some guests is that there are three buildings at this hotel. We were in building three, fourth floor, which couldn't be accessed by...

We had looked at several hotels in Deadwood but didn't want to pay $200-$400 per night. We stopped at this place which is only 1.2 miles from the main strip and only paid $129. so we jumped on it. The room was nice and clean and we didn't mind the walk to downtown. We did have a problem with the...

The room access cards stopped working for several of us in our group and the desk clerk blamed us for getting them near our cellphones or magnets. My grandson's card didn't work immediately after we got it and was never near a cellphone or magnet. It is a long trip through the buildings to get to the front desk to...

I liked this hotel. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms were clean. It is a short walk to the main street and if you aren't a walker you can take the Trolley. It's not in the main area where the majority of the tourists are but that was not problem for us as it was nice to get...

There are 3 buildings at this hotel. If you are not in the main building, you have to take a shuttle (golf cart) to your nearest entrance. The rooms are nice but the doors have large gaps around the frames so noise comes right through. The hotel guests around tend to be very noisy as this is a gambling/drinking wild...

We only spent the night and didn't have a chance to take advantage of the amenities but we were impressed, especially for the price. We wanted a clean and quiet room with a nice soft bed and that was exactly what we got. We left and on our way back through Deadwood, we stayed there again and had the same...

I loved spending the night at this hotel. The employees are so accommodating and nice. Our room was big and the bed was very comfortable. I didn't dislike anything about this hotel. I would stay here again if it were just closer. Good job First Gold, first class all the way

I travel from upstate NY to Pahrump NV and back twice a year. I stay at different hotels on each trip. The First Gold Hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I brought my dogs and had the best room and stress free stay ever.

Came to Deadwood for a week of sightseeing and was glad that I spent the whole time at the First Gold Hotel: everything from the staff, room and facilities, food, etc. was simply top shelf and will stay there without reservation any time I'm in the area.
