“Nice rooms, great location on Main Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

We stay at the Mineral Palace once or twice a year. Love the location - on Main Street, walking distance to other casinos and shops. The trolley stops right in front. The staff is very friendly -- some have worked there for years.

We prefer to stay on the third level so there is no one above us.We have stayed on the second floor a few times and found it annoying to hear people above us pacing back and forth at all hours. The rooms facing main street are not as noisy as the rooms facing the highway/road. But you still can hear street noise and traffic. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms have large bathrooms, a digital safe, a coffeemaker and flat screen tv. Coffee, hot water and baskets with tea, hot chocolate and apple cider packets are right by the front desk. Like most places in Deadwood, the rooms are pricey.


The Mineral Palace has a large casino. The restaurant (Gem Steakhouse) serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food there is great!

Thank you for choosing the Mineral Palace as your destination hotel when you come to Deadwood. We love to hear from returning guests! Many guests do enjoy the rooms facing Historic Main Street as they have a wonderful view of downtown Deadwood. We also appreciate your mentioning the amenities in each room as all hotel rooms have been updated over the last two years. We are delighted that you enjoyed the Gem Steakhouse & Saloon – we agree, the food is great! We will be sure to share your kind words about our staff with our team too. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Deadwood!

Do not stay here! The people who worked there acted like they were on vacation themselves. The Valet supervisor was rude to us when we dropped our car off at valet. Then we had misplaced our ticket and he was a complete jerk. He said there was nothing he could do if we did not have our ticket. He was not going to give us our car!!! Jahmal was very nice and apoligized for his supervisors behavior. Then the walls are paper thin I could here everything from the room next door nothing like being up from 2am til 4am. This Hotel was dissappointing. I can't beleive that anyone has had a good experience here.

We appreciate you taking the time to comment on your recent stay at the Mineral Palace, we are sorry that your experience was less than satisfactory. Your comments have been brought to the attention of our valet team for training purposes. We have always prided ourselves on providing excellent customer service so it's disappointing to hear when we have not met our own high standards. The Management and staff at the Mineral Palace Hotel & Casino believe that returning guests do so; not only for our on-property amenities, but also because of the great customer service they receive. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to prove that to you.

I have attended ski for light for many years and look forward to it every year. The Mineral Palace has been more than accomodating and the employees go out of there way to make your stay wonderful. I use a wheelchair and the hotel was very wheelchair friendly. It is located in a central location which makes it easy to get around to do a little shopping in downtown Deadwood. The hotel restaurant served delicious meals and there is a balcony that overlooks mainstreet. I would definitely stay there again.

I have been staying at the Mineral Palace during Ski for Light for the last 7-8 years. I enjoy my stay every year because the staff and owner are very nice, kind, and helpful. The beds are exceptionally comfortable, the rooms clean and welcoming, and the food is very tasty and amazing. Not to mention the deals that they have given our group has been so helpful in making this trip possible to attend every year. I highly recommend this facility to stay at. It's the best hotel in Deadwood!

Thanks for everything!
Tara K.

I have stay at the Mineral Palace for Ski for Light for many years now and I really look forward to coming back each year. The staff is very friendly , supportive and they will go out of their way to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible.. They cares for the travelers who come to stay at this hotel and they are willing to take those extra steps and provide the above normal help should the need arise. Given the options of which hotel to stay at in Deadwood during.SFL I would always chose the Mineral Palace. I have stayed at many hotel /motel and i rate the Mineral Palace A#1 above the rest. Many Thanks to the staff and management for a wonderful weekin your establishment.
