We stayed at the suites right next door. We rented the top level plus the bottom levels. We were pretty happy about a majority of our visit. It slept 10 easy enough and had enough space on the kitchen level for us to all talk about our adventure planning for the day. Our only gripes were that we couldn't figure... More

Positive: large room with big fridge which is very useful if you want to get your own breakfast in the room and since you are far away from Deadwood town and Lead. No much noise even though our room was facing the main road. Negative: food store is in Lead. No elevator. Complimentary breakfast was offered in the main building.

Friends of ours stayed here, it was a last minute decision to join us, and the Deadwood Gulch where we were staying had no available rooms, so to be close they got a room and Thunder Cove, rather than going to another town. We went with them to help them bring their stuff in the hotel, and the smell when... More

There is not someone at the front desk all night, their front desk closes at 10pm, we were traveling back from Yellowstone National Park and had been on the road for 12 hours, Deadwood was our stop for the night before getting on the road. We were hoping to be to Deadwood by 10pm, but traffic and travel did not... More

Sorry for your bad experience. You should have been told the office hours when you made the reservation. You are correct on the rates, ours are normally less than $100 and always the best rates in town. We do run limited office hours and that is why we can offer better rates. If we had our desk covered 24 hrs... More

The gal at the desk was sweet. She had no idea what she was doing though. She had two hours of training before she was left with the desk. The room however, smelled funny. On a scale of one to ten for cleanliness it was a four at best. The floors in the bathroom had the same hair in them... More

The Thunder Cove is an excellent hotel for the price. The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. Several of our family stayed in the hotel for a reunion in the area and we all loved it. The hotel is within walking distance of a restaurant but somewhat removed from the chaos of the casinos...

I came to Deadwood to do the Mickelson Half Marathon and stayed at the Thunder Cove Hotel. I had a very nice and enjoyable stay. The staff was very helpful from giving us directions to local attractions as well and where to dine out. The day of the race the manager herself brought us warm coffee and came to cheer... More

Stayed here with my family. Nice and quiet! Just outside the hustle and bustle of the busy Deadwood main street and no worries about crammed, paid parking. The Deadwood Trolley stops just out front and you can go anywhere in town for $1. The rooms were clean and the staff was kind, energetic, and willing to make our stay great.... More

The Thunder Cove Hotel is an awesome place to stay! Nice clean rooms at a very reasonable price. We saved enough money on the rooms that we were able to buy a nice breakfast every morning. The managers were very friendly and helpful. Also, the trolley rides downtown were awesome! I highly recommend the Thunder Cove Hotel!

I stayed here when I was in town for a race. While a majority of the town was hiking up their rates, the Thunder Cove stayed very reasonable. Our room was clean, the big fridge and microwave were an added bonus and we were fairly close to downtown. Lastly, we had to be up very early to meet the trolley... More
