We stayed in building 3 for two nights and paid too much for what we got. Mind you, it was peak season and we booked late, so that's more on us. I must say, the staff were wonderful- very pleasant and accommodating. We had no issues with the service at all. Unfortunately, the parking is not ideal as the ramp... More

We stayed here 6 nights for the 3 wheel rally. Based on some previous reviews I had read, I was a bit concerned about what to expect in terms of our room (my wife and I are normally pretty picky about hotel rooms). Our room (3336) was great. Extremely clean, very good bed. I slept great every night. The bathroom... More

We had our family reunion in Deadwood and everyone stayed at the First Gold. This is a terrific property and the entire staff made our reunion fantastic. The rooms were updated and spacious. We used the ballroom as our meeting room for the entire stay and it was wonderful, they provided us with coffee, tea and soda. I would like... More

We stayed in the new building #3. It was good and had all the basics. The bed was comfortable. We stayed two nights and the first night I got very little sleep. We had a room next to the exit door and it slams if you just open and let it go. It does not closer slowly, it slams loudly.... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our facility. I completely understand the slamming doors issues as I have experienced that at other properties and it is miserable to not get a good nights sleep. Our maintenance crew are making the repairs right now. Again, THANK YOU for bringing this to our attention. More

Note: we did not go for the Casino. We were part of a regional motorcycle rally. There are 3 buildings. The main casino with the food buffet downstairs the casino upstairs and 2 other buildings which had the hotel rooms and meeting rooms with outdoor parking and parking garages. The breakfast buffet is very good. Made to order omelettes by... More

Stayed here 4 nights for a 3 wheel motorcycle rally. Please note you you check in at the casino building and then drive up to the 4 story hotel facility. There is a parking garage where 2 floors are covered and the top is not. It can be a little bit of a maze to get to your room, but... More

We were passing through and needed a place to stay for the night that was pet friendly. This place worked out great. It was clean, convenient, and pet friendly. The staff was nice. I'd recommend this place. It's not right in town, but it's close enough!

Rather a strange set up here. You have to go to reception, which is in the casino, and then drive to the car park and various hotel blocks. If you do not want to use the car during the evening then you can summon a buggy to take you down to the street. We did this and I must say... More

I love that this hotel is very close to all the action downtown but a little removed, so it's quiet. The hotel layout is a little odd owing to the site, but the room was clean and quiet. My favorite aspect of staying here was the staff. Very friendly at check-in, and awesome on the back end. I screwed up... More

This is a hotel affiliated with the First Gold Casino. The rooms are comfortable, but not lavish. Free WiFi, micro and refer. Under cover parking, thank goodness because we had several thunderstorms with hail when we were there. Shuttle service within the casino area, but not downtown. About a 1/2 mile walk to get to the town trolley service, $1... More
