We experienced a freak winter blizzard in Oct '13 with estimated 56 inches of snow,.The entire city of Lead was snowed in! The management told everyone in the motel that it was not safe and that we needed to bunker down for 2-3 days together. Everyone worked together to make it a good experience, They left the conference room open... More

We spent 2 nights here over Martin Luther King weekend. Good deal at $50/night. Room was small and older, but clean. Shower had good water pressure which felt great after a full day of skiing. We spent no time in the room other than to sleep. Took a taxi into Deadwood 1 night and it was $9 each way, so... More

We were very disappointed. We had made a reservation for 2 nights but could only make it through 1. It was dirty and outdated. The room was hot and we could not turn on the AC because the unit and filter had a half inch of dust on it. It looked like the room had not been vacuumed. The hotel... More

We stayed here on the way to see Mt.Rushmore and this place was great. Room was really cheap, clean, huge and soundproof. The woman at the front desk was very friendly too. The room itself was a little outdated but who cares. You don't see it anyways when you're sleeping.

Great place to stay only minutes from deadwood. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Will stay there again for sure. This place is very affordable paid 75 bucks for two nights. Great value and would recommend to anyone.

Payed $40 on an off-season Saturday night. Location is about a 5 minute drive to Deadwood. That said, Lead is a neat town too and deserves a visit. Rooms are very clean and roomy. Building looks dated on the outside, but don't let it scare you off. This is a great place to stay a night. Friendly staff too.

This is a great place to stay, just a few miles from Deadwood. The price was fantastic, only $35 a night. The staff was great and the room was more than adequate and very clean. We'll be staying there on all our visits in the future.

Half to a third the price of every other motel in the area, we were a little concerned about what we mght find, but this is a jewel of a hotel.

This motel was probably the best motel bargain we have ever found! We had a very large queen room for $35 a night! The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast is a simple toast bar...exactly what the motel advertises. We did have free wifi that was more reliable at some moments than others, but still available. If traveling through this... More
