Vending machines broken or sold out for a week, very outdated rooms.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

My family stayed here for two nights in the teddy Roosevelt suite. I think the last time it was updated was when he stayed there. Peeling paint, cracked walls, shower alternated scalding hot and freezing cold water. No room service, not even able to get food to go! Staff not trained in normal service behavior. No bell staff / help... More

arrived on a bus tour of mostly senior citizens. one small very slow elevator which we all had to use to get to our rooms. upon entering the room it was small, old furniture, a lacey torn curtain on a dirty window, with a window air conditioner that only worked on high. fortunately it was not hot so I just...

10 years ago was a different experience at this hotel. They had an OLD elevator that has since been removed, and had a pianist playing at breakfast who is no longer there (incidentally the same pianist play during the summer months at 1880's town on tuesdays and wednesdays). The main and lower levels have been remodeled, and they are nice.... More

I stayed in the Silverado/Franklin hotel and enjoyed it. There was even an old claw-foot tub with a shower added to it! The room was fine-and you really had the sense that you had stepped through time and that Jesse James could easily be in the next room. I really like the casino (its the only one in Deadwood with...

We have stayed here 4 times now. The first time we stayed in the actual hotel. The room was cozy and clean. The last 3 times we have stayed in the Motor Lodge. We love it! The rooms are spacious and clean. We like that there is outdoor access to the room. It's very easy to stop in and drop... More

We stayed here a year ago and had a good enough experience to come back. We got a larger room than last year and it was worth the $$ for the extra space. The historic charm is hard to beat!! Like I said before, if you are expecting the Holiday Inn or the like, you probably won't like it here.......but... More
