My wife and I spent about 12 hours on the road and held off eating dinner - anticipating some of the advertised Prime Rib Buffet. We quickly checked into our room and then found out that the buffet ended at 8 p.m. We called the hotel front desk and asked about it and were told that they would seat people... More

First Gold has a relaxed atmosphere, casual decor, and down-home food on the buffet. The gaming is similar to all casinos, and the motel has small rustic rooms with a western motif. We have stayed here several times, and have always found it to be clean and comfortable. The staff members are truly outstanding. They call many folks by name,... More

The casino is to small and not enough machines and you can't smoke in any of them. A long wait to get cashed out. They should put in ticket cashing machines. Free drinks to all gamblers.

Had a great time playing video blackjack. Walking distance from Springhill Suites. Friendly staff and servers were on the ball asking if you needed something to drink.

If you want the best prime rib in Deadwood this is the place! The buffet is not fancy by any means but the food is fantastic! The young man slicing the prime rib was very kind and courteous. We had lovely waitresses, who were quick with refilling our drinks and taking away empty plates. Highly recommend!

Small dated rooms. Not very clean. Beds were very uncomfortable. No water pressure in the shower. No shuttle pick up. Just not the greatest!

we used to stay at the first gold on a regular basis; but lately during the day they have a couple rude dealers that act as if you are sinning and love to take your money. Really they are in the wrong industry if they can't give good customer service.

The staff of The First Gold Hotel was completely awesome. We took my 84 year old mother in law to Deadwood and they did an awesome job of going out of there way to help her to get around. A special thanks to Donna for spending her own money to buy a root beer so she could make my wife... More
