Last minute schedule of room on way home from longer vacation. Room was good, bed is a little hard and shower head was little difficult to use. Personnel checking you in were for the most part friendly but not overly helpful when requesting information from them.

If you are looking for a clean place to stay First Gold for you. Its not fancy by any means but serves its purpose for getting a good night sleep. The numbering system of the rooms can be confusing. Some of the 200 numbered rooms are on the third floor. As far as the casino it probably one of the... More

Stayed 3 nights here while we travelled around taking in the sights. It was cheap and clean. There is no restaurant but there are plenty places to eat close by. You can get a 'cart' into Deadwood itself and we enjoyed Kevin Costner's bar as well as the bar in which Wild Bill Hickok was killed. The room was spacious... More

We have stayed here many times! The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The people that work here are always courteous and will do their best to accommodate your every need. The only thing I'm not fond of is the elevator in Building No. 2. It's just very slow. All and all a great place for a fun few days.

Thank you for providing feedback about First Gold Hotel! We're glad that you found our rooms to your liking. We're also very proud of the hospitality of our staff! We will look into the elevator in building #2 to make sure it is properly responding to calls and moving at a rate that is comfortable and efficient. More

This is a review for two different stays that didn't go well and I admit both were a while back. First, the room numbering system and access to the rooms I always get stuck with is ridiculous. A group of us on bikes arrived and check in for everyone seemed fine. I went to 'my' room only to find it... More

We recently stayed here on a bus tour, we were met at the bus, given our room keys and a few directions. Our room had a great view of downtown Deadwood, very large, very clean, and the staff was just wonderful. The dining area and casino are separate from the hotel, but a very short walk or a golf cart... More
