“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2007

The Golden Hills Resort and Convention Center is a Great Place to stay. It is now locally owned and operated, and the new owners really know what is going on. The rooms are clean, and priced right. The restaurants steaks are delicious. The bar was fun, and the drinks were really reasonably price. There is a pool, but it is located inside another building. The cool thing was that to get to the other building you actually walk in a underground tunnel. So even though the pool isn't in the same building, there is definetly a very convenient and nice pool. Deadwood is only three miles away and the resort has a shuttle service which makes it very nice. The cost is $4 but you get it all back and then some in Deadwood. The town of lead is very interesting, and very worth anyones while to visit, and if you do you should stay at this place.

This place is a bit strange, its part of the Mineral Palace chain of hotels, but isn't in Deadwood. They offer a $4 (reimbursed with gaming credit) shuttle to Mineral Palace in Deadwood - about 4 miles away.

Staff was friendly, room was quiet, clean and spacious. The restaurant and the bar didn't seem to be open - and their is no pool or hot-tub. Seems like the property is in transition - like for the over-flow from Mineral Palace. We only paid just under $60 before tax, and that included an adequate carb-only breakfast too.

If you want really good pizza, there is a small place called PizzaLab just down the street that was really good - no liquor though, but highly recommended. They were really friendly there too - and have ice cream for the kids!
