Wide variety of slot machines, with generous hot seat drawings. Excellent Prime Rib buffet. Ample and clean rest rooms. If you win a hot seat, they add it to your card without you having to leave your machine.

We were staying in a suite (4 women). It was wonderful as they had 2 big beds in one room with a couch, 2 chairs, desk, in a sitting room. Both rooms had tv's. Because it had once been adjoining rooms, we had 2 bathrooms, closet, full refrigerator, microwave. We also had some luck in their gaming facilities. Their breakfast... More

This hotel is at the far north end of town as you enter from either US 85 or 14. Good parking area, which is difficult to find in Deadwood. Small casino also inside. Town Trolley stops in front, only a $1 per ride.
