“Never Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

What a horrible night..Room was not clean ( candy wrappers behind tv ).. Heater fan sounded aweful and kept waking us up all night long, The 2 chairs in the room were black with filth and ripped up, Maintenance at 5am started scrapping snow off outside patio waking us all up. very limited tv channels Wireless internet didnt work but 25% of the time and going to the bathroom in the middle of the night I actually tripped over the carpet (No not a throw rug but the actual carpet )..

On a good note the Bed itself was extremly comfy

I stayed at the Days Inn over Deadweird weekend. Beyond the small bathroom and a dirty bathroom vent the room was clean and the beds were amazing after a wild night. It was great to feel like you were coming home to relax and sleep. When my friends and I first got to the hotel I thought it was going to be the typical Days Inn experience, but the view as you first walk into the hotel was impressive. I enjoyed the big windows with a view, but my favorite view was through the elevator window. :)

I invited my BFF's up from Casper, WY for the Halloween Celebration in Deadwood. We all stayed at the Days Inn in Lead, SD. The Staff was amazing. Helpful and friendly. The hotel was nice, quiet at night, and we all got a good nights sleep after the festivities. I would totally do this again!

While staying at the Days Inn in Lead, I was happy that it was a very high class resort. I generally think of Days Inn as a boring motel chain. This was more of a high class resort. Great views of the hills and the elevator that looks over the quaint setting of Lead is a very nice touch. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was great. Some of the vacation packages advertised looked very affordable and enticing for outdoors enthusiasts.

We had a wonderful expierence at this Inn. Room was very clean. People friendly. Good location in relationship to other areas. Free cont. breakfast could have had a few more items to choose from but WAS free and adequate. I would recomend this Inn to anyone.

Room Tip: when you call ask questions don't just assume

Stayed for a few days for a meeting. The hotel itself was nice, and the location (since I had to be in Lead) is good. The rooms were clean and well furnished. The free continental breakfast was very disappointing, both in quality and variety. Otherwise a fine stay, if a bit expensive for the area.

Thank you for the response and kind words! We are glad to hear that the rooms were satisfying! We are very sorry to hear that our breakfast wasn't what you had hoped it would be. We also shoot to be one of the lowest priced establishments around, especially in Lead! It's the beauty of the town that draws up the prices! :) Thanks again for staying with us, and we hope to see you again soon!

The accommodations were acceptable. The rooms need updated a bit and could have been cleaner. The heating throughout the hotel was very uneven, one are was very cold and other areas were extremely warm. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent.
