The was my first stay at First Gold Hotel & Gaming in Deadwood, SD and everyone affiliated with the hotel was very helpful and friendly. Our hotel room was very nice and clean. We stayed in the first building and it was a nice walk from the hotel to the casino, but there was always someone there with the little... More

I have stayed at the First Gold many times. The food was great. They have buffets which I just love. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. I wanted to take the pillows home with me. I will definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the "original" building, not one of the two newer buildings. It was last minute reservation so they only had a smoking room. If there hadn't been an ashtray on the side table I would've had no clue that it had been smoked in. Very clean room! Our room was also directly above a casino. There was absolutely... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Deb at the reception desk who went out of her way to accommodate our requests and even went above and beyond what we had anticipated for service. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We have already made reservations for a future stay.

Our stay over Kool Deadwood Nites was awesome. The staff was very accommodating at check-in and check-out. The rooms were comfortable with the typical amenities like TV, frig, coffee maker, etc. And of course, plenty of gaming machines. We'll be staying again.

Not exactly walking distance to city center, but not bad. Consists of 4 buildings on 2 sites. Rooms are basic but clean. No WiFi and poor ATT service throughout area.depending on room location fairly quiet except when a bunch of Harley's or Indians pull into parking structure..but this is Sturgis country and leathers are to be expected.

First of all this is an older property, but it has character. We were greeted at the hotel desk by a very friendly gentleman. Our room was in an adjoining building that we did not realize. We requested a room in the main hotel building and the room was comfortable but a bit dated. The best part is that the... More

Older hotel in good condition. Located on the main road in to town. Several buildings, I was in bldg 3 which was quiet and had an entrance to the parade which gave me covered parking for my bike. Short stroll to the main building where there is an excellent buffet and deli. Good food. Staff are excellent and accommodating. Even... More

First Gold is a very nice and clean hotel. We enjoyed our stay and Terry was very prompt with communication. There were around 10 in our party who are older and not quite up to the walking aspect, even though First Gold has a shuttle, the shuttle only goes between the hotel's properties. To catch the Trolley one must walk... More

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
