We stayed at the Silverado Franklin in Deadwood on August 19 and 20t for Kool Deadwood Nights. We were booked into a two bedroom "suite". It appeared the room has not seen many or no refurbishing's in a very long time. The carpet was full of stains and dirty spots. No doors on the bedrooms. Old worn furniture, lock on... More

This was our 2nd visit to this property. Our first was approximately 9 yrs ago and at that time they were getting ready to put in their casino. We were also told they were working on updating the hotel rooms. Our room this trip had not been updated. The plaster walls had long cracks, the popcorn ceiling was peeling and... More

Very surprised to find a casino in Deadwood, South Dakota. I really like the variety of slot machines. Absolutely LOVED the fact that the casino is smoke-free (wish Vegas would do the same). My only complaint is you have to use the casino cage every time you want to cash in your slot ticket. Even though I won a little... More

If you want the cookie cutter, name brand box hotel... stay away. But If you want to feel history the way it was in the west. The Franklin is it. The poor reviews doesn't keep us away. The location, restaurant and casino are first rate.

This is an old hotel but that's what makes it such a neat place to stay. Very friendly staff. Gwen is the coordinator for Bike Week and continually does an amazing job booking our rooms with seamless check in and out. Clean rooms with views of the street and veranda. If you are looking for a Hilton this is not... More

Despite reading bad reviews of the hotel, we decided to take a risk, thinking "it couldn't be that bad" but it was! The outside appearance is very inviting, and the reception area is quite nice, even with the obligatory slot machines and gaming tables. Unfortunately that's where quite nice stops and pretty grim starts! The room was very poor. AC... More

Vending machines broken or sold out for a week, very outdated rooms. Broken bathroom faucets that shoot out scalding hot then ice cold water while you shower. They only want you in their ridiculous casino. No laundry service, had to go to the next town to find laundromat. . It was so disappointing we left a day early even though... More

We stayed in the historic Franklin Hotel in Deadwood, SD. The last time we stayed here was in 1985. The hotel is much improved now with the addition of their restaurant. Every meal we had was excellently prepared, wonderfully served (Thanks especially to Lindsay and Jessica!), and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend the hotel and restaurant! I only wish...

The location was great and the service was also. The room was very small and we ran out of HOT WATER everyday that we were there. The staff was in and out of the back door close to our room so at 5am, every morning. The door was opened and shut loudly. I think if they could update that with... More
