First time staying at the first gold-when we arrived in deadwood saw a sign for 49.99 sun-thur. As we were gambling at tin lizzy my hubby said call first gold and see if they have a room for 1 night. (we were gonna gamble and go home-3 hour drive from casper wyoming. We ended up staying 2 nights because we really enjoyed staying there. We get home today and looked at my cc account and they charged me 251.50 for smoking in the room. Am so upset my husband never smoked in the room and the camera will show that.Am disputing the charge thru my cc company and will take it to court if need be. Been going to deadwood for over 20 years and never been charged or accused of my husband smoking in the room because he has never smoked in any rooms that we have stayed at for over 20 years. Called-talked with carmen front desk-let her know,we wanted to talk with management she stated they don't have management at night only security. She stated that sherry would be in touch with me tomorrow! My husband had called carmen back to see if sherry could get in touch with him tonight because he doesn't believe in be accused of something he didn't do! But carmen called back to let us know that sherry would be getting back with us tomorrow (regardless of how upset me and my hubby are) dealing with be accused of something and being 3 hours away is so upsetting! And yet carmen hung up on my husband when he was trying to explain that he needed to defend himself over the accusations of smoking in the room.

For $36/night, we didn't know what to expect. Well, we were pleasantly surprised to find a large room, a king bed (comfy), two very nice recliners, microwave, mini fridge and a Keurig coffee maker! There is a nice restaurant downstairs with friendly staff as well as good food. We were able to save a few dollars by cooking our own food in the room which allowed us to spend it at their adjoining casino! The casino offered free beer, coffee, or soda while we played. We had three very pleasant nights there, and we are happy to recommend First Gold in Deadwood, SD.

This "resort" is not a full-service establishment as there was no indoor pool or work-out center and the cafe was only your run of the mill basic menu of burgers, hot beef, etc. The casino was not impressive either as there were many OLD machines. We spent more time at Cadillac Jacks next door because it is more modern and updated. The rooms were okay and bed comfortable enough. Our view out the window was a wall of rock.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in October. Everyone was helpful; the rooms were clean, comfortable and newly remodeled in western decor. This hotel is also very convenient to the historic downtown, an easy walking distance to almost everything. Breakfast was extremely reasonable ($7 for chicken fried steak breakfast, which was excellent, and included coffee). This hotel is also a real bargain - I will definitely be back!
