Staying here was such a treat! The whole town of Deadwood is so quaint and historic, it makes you feel that you are being transported to the 1800's. Well, except for the ubiquitous casinos, but at least they are not in your face like in Vegas. Anyway, the Martin Mason is a small boutique hotel, about 10 rooms, and was lovingly restored to its original glory, or maybe better. The lobby has thick flowered carpetting, highly polished wodd and brass and a stamped tin ceiling. We stayed in the Elisha/Eliza Current suite and it was gorgeous--all antique furnishings, but with a good a/c system and flat screen TV. The sink was in the bedroom, which was weird, but this room has a separate bathroom with tub/shower, many of the rooms have the tub in the bedroom as well. The Elisha/Eliza Current room looks like they took 2 smaller rooms and combined them, so the room is quite large. We just loved the historic feeling, creaky floors and all. Bed was great. There are also some small details that set this place apart--a very helpful staff, complimentary water and soft drinks in a fridge on the landing, fresh baked shortbread cookies in the evening and fresh coffee and scones in the morning. If you need a lot of amenities, go stay in one of the casino hotels, but if you want a completely unique hotel experience, this is a great place. We really loved Deadwood and only wish we had planned to stay there another day or so, as there is a lot of history here and plenty of stuff to do in the area.
