The staff was friendly and helpful beginning with my phone call about reserving a room to walking us out to the parking lot to be sure there were available spaces! Our third floor was reasonably sized for a building of this age and because it was on the corner, had windows on two sides: overlooking the depot and Adams Museum... More

Thank you for your review, and your kind words. With views on two sides, the corner suite that you stayed is one of my favorite rooms as well. I will pass along your compliments to my staff, as they work hard to ensure a good guest experience. Your idea of an in-room explanation of our 1896 building is excellent! We... More

Although my room was small, it was very clean and comfortable. The pillows, blankets and linens had a clean freshly laundered smell. The hotel has a small casino in the lobby, an intimate bar and an attached diner type restaurant. With only 19 rooms, the hotel was very quiet at night. The hotel has free WiFi and parking. In all,... More

Thank you for being our guest, and for your kind words. Our hotel rooms vary in size, as our 1896 building was re-purposed for it's present lodging use. Upon request, we can typically find a larger room for any guest. I am glad that you found your room to be clean and comfortable. We work hard to maintain the property,... More

I'm very late in posting our latest experience at the Iron Horse Inn, but here it goes! Over the week of Christmas when our plans for staying with family fell through, we made a six night reservation. While anxious at first about spending the holiday in a hotel, we couldn't have been any happier with the accomodations and staff. We... More

Thank you for being our guest! I'm glad you found our hotel comfortable during your lengthy stay. While historic properties often offer unique operating challenges, heating and cooling the Iron Horse Inn is not one of those. Our HVAC system is a newer one, but the extra blanket is always a good idea! I will pass along your compliments to... More

My husband and I returned from yet another stay at the Iron Horse Inn in early February. We stayed for 10 days in one of our favorite rooms, #308, and were thrilled to see a mini-refrigerator and microwave in our room when we arrived. We've stayed here many times over the past several years and usually bring a large cooler... More

We loved our stay at the Iron Horse! Although our room was small, the building was historic and had a lot of character! The windows are very large and beautiful! The hospitality could not be any better!! The service we received from the entire hotel staff was incredible!

Thank you for being our guest, and your kind words. Your headline of "Authentic!" is an appropriate one, since our property has been around since the late 19th century. While occasionally we disappoint someone looking for a standard Holiday Inn room, most of our guests appreciate the experience of staying in a historic hotel when visiting historic Deadwood. I will... More

Nothing that would drive a guest away screaming. But the websites make it look much more spectacular than it really is. Old building, well worn furnishings. Reminded me of a 1950s college dorm with narrow dark halls, stairwells etc. Not much for food service, nor is the casino great. If you're a slot player, just having a collection of machines... More

Thank you for being our guest. Our historic property was constructed in 1896 as an agricultural supply store, then converted to its present hotel use in the late 1990's. While most of our guests appreciate our restoration effort, preservation work is somewhat limited to the "box" that was originally built in 1896. Thus, more narrow hallways and fewer electrical outlets... More

This hotel is located right downtown and across the street from Adams Museum. The interior is decorated very nicely. The rooms are A bit old and the beds and pillows are just okay.

Thank you for being our guest. I think that your summary of our historic hotel is accurate: "nice hotel, great location, great price." Our rooms vary in size as the building was constructed in 1896 as a feed store for agriculture, then converted to it's present hotel use in the late 1990's.

The room was very small. Very small. But when you're in Deadwood you don't spend a lot of time in your hotel room anyway. The building is old and it shows but that also adds a little charm. Cleanliness was not an issue at all. The staff were all great. The price was very good in comparison to other hotels... More

Thank you for being our guest. I agree that our staff is "top shelf," and that we offer a clean, comfortable room for an inexpensive price in downtown Deadwood. Our rooms vary in size, but this time of year we could have offered you a larger one for the same reasonable cost. We will do that on your next stay!... More

The Iron Horse is a lovely and updated old stone building right in the heart of Deadwood. It is located to make walking to everything very easy. Parking is free for guests. There is a small bar and restaurant downstairs in the attached casino.

My friends and I were in town for Deadweird and just needed a place to sleep for the night, and this hotel delivered on that.
