We have stayed here many times while in the area visiting relatives and would not want to stay anywhere else! We love the fact that it is truly historic, with the rooms realistically the way they were in the early 20 th century. One of our favorite parts of this hotel is the elegance of the restored lobby and main... More

Beautiful new restaurant located downstairs of the Franklin Hotel. If you have memories of the old Dirty Nellies you will soon forget once you see the upscale decor. I ordered the New York strip which was excellent, but others in our party had the sirloin which wasnt as good. If you plan on dining in a large group they cannot... More

Stayed here for 2 Nights during Deadwood Jam In Sept 2014. Had a Main Street side room. Very noisy. This hotel needs to update for the price they charge. Ate in the New Steak House downstairs, New York Strip Steak was EXCELLENT, service a bit slow, but will improve over time i would hope.

My wife and I stopped in the Franklin to try the new resturant. It was obvious there are a few bugs to work out and they were short staffed. However the food was very good and the place is very classy!

So we booked a table for the newly opened Legends Restaurant downstairs. We ordered four drinks, one being a pint of Guinness. We were given half a pint as it had not settled and was half froth, told bar an to fill once settled, 3/4 filled ( because batman could not pull a pint and wasted so much) the Guinness... More

We stayed here while traveling in SD, the day we visited Deadwood, it was in the middle of a day of raining non stop, ALL DAY. The lobby, and other hotel areas are beautiful and still decorated in their historic time frame. I love stuff like that! We stayed in the "Potato Creek Johnny" room, a corner room on the... More

I stayed in this historic hotel in 1965, and in 1970 and once again in 1998. I love this hotel. I don't know if they still have the old elevator, but they did back in the day. The last stay I was sad to see slots in the lobby, but seems they have been moved out to perhaps the old... More

THE WORST OF THE WORST! Putting the poor state of the rooms aside (torn carpet, shabby décor, non-working air conditioning, smelly, substandard electrical etc.) this place has the worst customer service I have EVER encountered! DON'T YOU HAVE A "NO STARS" RATING????????????!

This was my second stay at the Franklin Hotel. The first was back in about 2000. I looked at the photos on their website and it appeared that the rooms had been remodeled since my first stay. I was disappointed, to say the least, that not much had changed in the rooms after the acquisition by the Silverado. You can... More
