I stayed at the Palace Express last Saturday night. I planned on rolling into Lead around 8:00 and leaving first thing in the morning, so I wasn't looking to spend a lot of money. I got a room for $70, including tax. The pluses: the front desk guy was pretty friendly; there was plenty of parking; it's close to a... More

This a very good value place to stay. I stay here when I come to Deadwood. The rooms are clean. The staff is nice. No, its not fancy , but for the price you can't go wrong. The Parking lot in back is great for parking your Harley, and not have to worry about it.

This is the best value motel we stayed in in 6 weeks in nth America. With everything else being booked out near Deadwood we thought it was going to be expensive. However it was $40 per night for 2, including a hot drink and juice bar and toast for breakfast with high speed internet, clean large quiet rooms and a... More

In the past this has been a decent place to stay. This trip was certainly different. The check in clerk was busier fighting with someone about his facebook page than checking anyone in. He actually answered his personal phone while on the hotel phone with a customer and answered his personal phone again while checking us in! The second time... More

Went there for the Mustang rally in Sturgis. Couldn't find anything else. I didn't expect much for the $60, but I do expect a clean place to sleep. The hotel is in dire need of a overhaul. The furniture is showing a lot of wear. We walked in to the room and could hardly breathe because of the overwhelming smell... More

Can't ask for a better price then what we paid here. It is so close to all attractions in SD. The hotel is older and could use some updates, however the beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and you get toast, coffee, juice and danish for breakfast. How much time do you spend in your hotel room. Deadwood is just... More

First off, I want to say THANK YOU TO KATHLEEN. She was the only employee who went out of her way to make my stay a pleasant one. Colleen and the two gentleman who worked the front desk in no way made any attempt to assist with booking a local tour, or even getting my wifi working in the room.... More

This was a good deal place. Older but in good shape. Comfy lobby area. Coffee and juice 24/7. Beds were great. Firm, not saggy. Room was clean and everything worked. The shower was great. Second time I have stayed somewhere with one of these small shower heads that puts of a great flow of water. Got to find me one... More

I was there with my son-in-law for bike week. I had $140 in a sealed envelope. I got it out intending to take some of the money with me but decided against it. I set it on a table and forgot to put it away. Ordinarily I never leave anything of value out, but we were in a hurry and... More

Our room had the BEST shower of any hotel I've ever stayed in. They raise prices during bike week but not as high as a lot of the area hotels. Bed was comfy. air condit. worked great, tv and channels were good.
