I just returned from Deadwood, SD. When we first go there we had reservations at the Gold County Inn and after check-in came to find out that they have no internet service. I go to school online and needed internet service. In a panic I called the Penny Motel and they accomadated us price wise, and let me tell you...the rooms are beautiful. You walk in and feel as if you are in a 5 star resort and the help and assistance we recieved from the motel staff was incredible. I highly recommend the Penny Motel in Deadwood, SD for anyone traveling out there!

Room Tip: The have general rooms (which we stayed in) but also the Branch House which includes refridgerator a...

We have only ever stayed in the Branch House so I can only comment on those rooms. Very close to downtown, within stumbling distance. Rooms are clean and well kept. They add nice little touches to the rooms. Eye makeup remover packets, Febreeze Air freshener. Kind of comforts of home. The office has various supplies available for sale too. Toiletries, groceries, beer. We will be back. The female owner is so nice and accommodating, the male owner is nice enough.

Room Tip: Stay in the Branch house!

This motel was very clean (as advertised), staff was friendly, and the room was pretty comfortable. We had a smoking room, and they offered to run an ionizer in the room before we arrived (no smell at all). Definitely a great choice considering the price was about 1/3 of what most of the other motels close to Main St were charging in August. Just a few minutes walk down Main to the casinos, and the trolley goes by, as well.

Room Tip: Walls are a bit thin, have only stayed once but this might be something worth asking about as I'...

The Branch House at the Penny Motel was the best !! Room was large, very clean,and the bed was awesome with a big comfy quilt not your usual motel bedding. It made us feel right at home .Had everything we wanted fridge , mic, and the staff were wonderful. The price was great . We booked for 6 days and ended up rebooking for 2 more days. We highly recommend the Branch House.You can walk 3 blocks to downtown or catch the trolly.
Thanks Dee, Rich and staff for the great stay. We will be back .

Room Tip: Stay in the Branch House
