I rented a room here for 2 nights with me and some buddies (ages 21-23) for a little getaway trip. Before I could even check in I felt unwelcome at this hotel. The lady that checked me in kept me standing there for a good 15 minutes while she was on the phone and made me wait even longer when... More

The king bed was the most comfortable bed in any hotel I've slept in for a long time. The bath room is quite small, no tub, only a shower sized for one. Very quiet however, I didn't hear a sound all night though there were kids and babies on our floor. The AC was great. A must in summer. There... More

Thank you for your review - glad to hear you had a comfortable, quiet stay! For the wi-fi, there are repeaters in each building and on each floor so there should be a good signal but as noted in a previous review, we will check the signal strengths to make sure all rooms are covered properly - we appreciate your...

Pleasantly surprised by our accommodations at the First Gold Hotel. Two queen beds, upper floor, facing out the back of hotel (so as to avoid the street noise). The room was appointed with basic necessities as far as toiletries and coffee pot, etc. Shower and toilet were updated. Beds were done in very nice updated blue decor. Our stay was... More

My granddaughter and I stayed at the First Gold Hotel on June 29th for one night. Our room wasn't fancy, but it was clean and comfortable. The only thing that needed improvement was the wifi signal - it went in and out which to a 16 year old is annoying. Then again, what isn't to a 16 year old? (haha)... More

Thank you for your review! Sorry to hear that the wi-fi was spotty; there are repeaters for each building and on each floor which ordinarily makes for a strong signal everywhere, but we'll be sure to check the signal strengths to make sure coverage is optimal. Very glad to hear every other part of your visit was to your liking! More

Great nights stay, away from all the hustle and bustle of downtown. Just on the outskirts of town. Easy check in and out. Casino was clean, staff helpful . Great breakfast buffet. Stay in main building if possible, that's where all the action is, but they do have a shuttle that runs between the buildings, didn't have to use it,... More

Thank you for your positive review! We do have carts that run between the buildings - including a new 6-person cart (with some pretty terrific lighting) that we just started using today! More

We had a late check in and it was nearly impossible to get checked in. When getting our room number we asked the clerk how to get there only to find it was in another building, and to get there you had to go outside, up and down stairs, through corridors, etc. It was not very pleasant with children dragging...

Very sorry to hear you did not have a top-quality experience last year. First Gold does include three buildings for the hotel rooms, and we do try to make sure we let guests know the most efficient way to get to their room. We do hope you communicated your concerns to the front desk, because we pride ourselves on providing... More

Gaming hotel. Fairly new and very clean. Somewhat disjointed with three buildings. Very good location on the edge of town. Great town with an abundance of charm. The casino is very clean and the service is great.

We had a great time staying at this hotel. The room was super clean. Check in was fast, easy, and the staff was great. The casino was really nice and their food was great. I loved the omelet bar. We will be staying there again on our next trip to Deadwood.
