“Fabulous!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2008

Loved this hotel. The location was perfect - right in the middle of everything. The room was so well furnished and very very clean and offered high quality toiletries. The staff were very friendly and had the feeling of a mom and pop place with the staff sharing the check in, bar and gambling tables. The terrace is a real plus and an opportunity to soak up the street life from a bird's eye view and also a great place to meet and talk to other guests, and have a few drinks as the sun goes down. The breakfast was self service and fairly limited, served around the black jack tables, but nevertheless, a novel experience. There was fresh juice, coffee, danish pastries and bread for toast. There were also breakfast burritos in the fridge. All in all, I would highly recommend staying here. The rooms over the casino are guarded by doors to stop the smell of smoke so I believe they really have tried to think of pretty much everything.

The Celebrity Hotel was much more than we expected. Our room was huge and luxuriously decorated & appointed. We could have easily lived in this room for a month. The electric drapes, plasma T-V, and excellent lighting were a plus.

Our marble bathroom was a pleasure; it was about 8 x 10. I wish we had enough time to enjoy the large soaking tub, but the heated towel bar, and large shower with the rain head were quite nice. The towels were large and soft, we enjoyed the soaps & lotions.

The staff made us feel like a Celebrity at the Celebrity. They were warm, friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. Laundry was $7.50 for a large bag and were were surprised to find our laundry clean & folded a couple of hours later. They recommended wonderful restaurants in Deadwood and overall went out of their way to accommodate us.

We were in Deadwood for Kool Deadwood Nights; we were in the center of the action. We were concerned about noise, but our room was very quiet.

A complimentary breakfast was in the bar in the morning. We enjoyed coffee, juice, muffins, pastries, cereals, toast, and breakfast burritos. It wasn't anything fancy but it was clean and more than adequate.

Unique Qualities: Downstairs was Nelson's Garage containing many historic cars, motorcycles, costumes & memorabia from film & television. Casino was on the first floor, was worried about smoke but it didn't seem to be an issue.

We stayed in the Duke Suite which is a two room suite. It was very nice. It was centrally located on the main strip, and we were able to leave our car there and walk anywhere. The hotel has a small parking lot beside the hotel that we were able to park in so we didn't have to park in the parking structure.

We found the room and bathroom to be very quiet and clean. There was no restaurant in the hotel, but there many were within a few minute walk. The beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed the free Wi-Fi. The lobby is full of interesting memorabilia from various movies.

We stayed at the Celebrity for 2 nights during our trip to South Dakota. We had a luxury king room. The room was beautiful. The bathroom was great with a shower and a bathtub. We would have preferred a room with a refrigerator, but this was all that was available (and we booked this room back in March). The room was quiet and comfortable. The Celebrity is the perfect location (centrally located on Main St.). I highly recommend the Celebrity.

Absolutely fantastic hotel, the Victorian rooms being to the highest of standards the bathrooms being the high light.

Staff were very attentive, polite and helpfull regarding every matter. The rooms were extremely quiet and everything throughout the hotel was extremely clean. Can't imagine any Hotel in Deadwood matching the Celebrity's standards.

Parking was free, either right next door or at a multi-level car park 100 yards away.

The only downer, and a small one at that, was that the Celebrity didn't have their own restaurant although they did offer a small Continental breakfast but as you are right in the middle of Main Street, teaming with places to dine, it was no problem whatsoever. Would HIGHLY recommend and if the Management or Staff should read this review please accept our sincere thanks for a great 3 days. I sincerely hope we are able to return one day !

We were at the tail end of our trip to the Black Hills and we decided to stay here one night to wrap up our trip. It was pretty quiet in town (they had just had 12+ inches of snow the week before in the Black Hills) and we read good reviews about this place. Well, we checked in and took one look at our room, went back to the hotel desk and asked for one more night to stay (and extended our vacation!)

The room was unbelievable! The bed was comfy, they had WiFI in the room and a nice view overlooking the main street in Deadwood (the hooker mannequins in the windows of the buildings across the street, while creepy, added to the festivities of Deadwood, this ain't Disneyland!)

But the best part was the Jacuzzi and shower. We decided we had to have something like this in our home! The front staff were great, the location was great, everything was perfect! We would highly recommend and we plan on going again!!

I chose this hotel based on its Trip Advisor rating. I am glad I did. After reading some reviews of nearby hotels, I realize how lucky we were to stay at the Celebrity.

Our room was newly decorated. Ours was the only room with a steam shower. The space in the bathroom was a little tight, so maybe the management thought that adding a steam shower would make the small space seem a little more agreable. The bathroom fixtures and bedroom furniture were beautiful. Our bed seemed a little squishy on the edges but was otherwise comfortable. This room faces towards a busy street and the sounds of traffic sort of echoed up into our room, so I didn't want to keep the window open. As a result I ran the air conditioner quite a bit. It was very powerful.

I agree that the casino smelled a little dank. The hotdogs were great, though, and the free beer was nice. The breakfast bar was acceptable. The memorabilia was impressive if you are into such things. The staff was excellent.

Celebrity has its own small parking lot. This is a big plus. I would definately stay here again if I were to go back to Deadwood.
