Cute little place. Staff very nice, have never seen such a nice spread for a continental breakfast before! Rooms are small,no phones or ice,which is to be expected in a place like this. Room #5 is right next to the stairs,don't stay there if you are a light sleeper!

This is a hotel that was converted from a former church. We stayed in a small room with a queen bed and 4 stairs up to the bathroom. We were actually "walked" to our room by staff and it was explained that the 4 stairs to the bathroom was actually a "reading room" in the former church. Our whole stay... More

This was our first stay in Lead and I would definitely stay at the Dakota Spur in the future. The hosts were so personable, nice to visit with, and helpful with suggestions. They made us feel at home. I loved the outside deck and tables upstairs and the lounge area with the pool table downstairs, we enjoyed these sitting areas... More

Western decor made this hotel a wonderful place to come home to after visiting the many sites in the area. My daughter and her boyfriend got engaged on the 4th of July. Nancy, the hotel manager brought them champagne and glasses to celebrate. We felt like we were important to the hotel. We also liked being so close to Deadwood... More

We really enjoyed our visit at the Dakota Spur, which felt more like a B&B. The they were very friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs, the architecture was interesting, rooms were clean. The breakfast was pastries, cereal or yogurt. The coffee was delicious (my only complaint was that there was no unflavored creamer). I recommend this... More

Looking for somewhere with charm and basic necessities? This is the perfect place for a quiet retreat with company if you so choose! Very nice staff that keep the place looking nice! Everything you could need for a more than affordable price and you can get bison burgers down the street at the Stampmill restaurant and bar!

Staff were friendly and so helpful. Road construction in the front made it a little challenging to get in, but was met in the back and even helped carry bags in! Room was clean and inviting. This is a no frills room, but had everything I needed. There are places to hang out inside and outside if you want. Very... More

My brother and I stayed here on a five day tour of the Black Hills. Our room was clean and the owners went out of their way to provide anything we needed. We were very pleased with our room, the service, the free breakfast and the price.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. The manager was really friendly and very helpful. The hotel used to be a Christian Science center and reading room. Our room was small but had been remodeled and was comfortable. We loved the spa tub. There was no air conditioning and the ceiling fan didn't help much (I'm pregnant and... More
