We stayed for 3 nights while in the area. Room was nice sized large refrigerator. Breakfast was just muffins, danishes, and coffee but still ok. The people that run it are nice. Only downfall was the rooms smelled funny.

Clean and comfortable with microwave and frig. The best thing is that the trolley will pick you up right out front and take you the mile to Deadwood and bring you back. We had so much fun staying here and taking the trolley. The manager was very friendly. As a previous review stated ask if you need something. I asked... More

This is a well-run motel, no frills - just donuts and coffee in the morning. But the price is right if you have checked out hotels in the Deadwood area. The hotel complex about 1/2 block down and on the other side of the road has a restaurant, bar and slot machines when and if you need those things. It... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The amenities in the room were all you needed for a pleasant stay. The location of the hotel was away from the hustle of the downtown, which makes for a quiet stay with greens around. The bed was super cozy and nice. However, the best part of the stay was Sharla and Kyle being... More

Our stay at Thunder Cove Hotel was great. The managers were very accommodating, from blow dryers, irons, to getting us a personal coffee maker for our room cuz I get up before the lobby opens. Our room was simple and very clean. We feel that the price we paid was extremely reasonable for the services we received. We will be... More

I was in Deadwood for work June 7-13th. When traveling, I look for a room that is FIRST clean. After that clean linens, a refrigerator, microwave & GOOD wi/fi. Thunder cove has ALL of this, at a fair price. An added bonus is that there is a trolley stop right in front. The staff could not have been more helpful.... More

Wonderful place to stay if you want a clean quiet place to stay away from all the loud Gambling activities in the area. We so appreciated the friendly hospitable service at Thunder-cove. And you can't beat the price any time of year. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will be back!
