Deadwood is to South Dakota what Central City is to Colorado: a town that would have died a natural and merciful death, but for historic preservation credits and casino gaming. It is prettier than its Colorado counterparts, and the state was more aggressive in preserving what was left of the old town.
The Grand is right in the middle of everything, but you probably won't have much of a reason to leave. The rooms are new and well-appointed and the staff, attentive, motivated, and eager to please -- I haven't heard that many "you betchas" since Sarah Palin was running. You will want to avail yourself of the free parking, because you have to walk through the casino to get to the hotel desk.
Spend the extra $20 for a balcony suite, as it will offer a delicious view of an eye-friendly town, and you get the sunrise in the morning. And you will want to have dinner or breakfast on the patio at Aught: the portions are generous and the prices, reasonable. For instance, their take on the croissanwich is only $8, more than twice the size of what you get at a fast-food joint, and far superior.
Gamblers need to know that they don't give you the same incentives you are accustomed to at a Las Vegas or Reno. What you pay for your room is what you will pay for your room, and your play will not offset it.
