This hotel was very nice. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The king size bed was really nice. The hotel smelled really good and clean. The hotel had coffee in the morning free of charge. It was one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. I really recommend staying here. Deadwood is a few blocks down the street. The... More

We stayed here for only one night, but we're very pleased with the accomodations. It was VERY CLEAN AND THE BEDS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE. Can't really ask for more than that in a great priced hotel. I highly recommend it.

We were in building two on the top floor. The elevator was horrendously slow. It was over 80 degrees out and the air was not on when we checked in so our room was super hot and took forever to cool down, but once it did, the air kept up fine. Our room wasn't that clean when we got there,... More

This wasn't the second time I have stayed-here-but I thought a second review was in order. First of all- when I reserve a room- I now ask for the "main building"-it is much more convenient and they have accommodated me every time. The rooms are nice and clean- complimentary bottled water in the fridge-casinos funky but fun. They are trying... More

I was excited to be in Cowboy Country!!! Came with a bus tour so the choice was made for us, however this is not a bad place. This is a clean, comfortable hotel with the casino in the main building along with the restaurant. There were two other buildings. You could walk to the main building for your food and... More

Fabulous staff, whole complex (3 buildings) was spotless, and room was spacious, quiet and decorated nicely in western theme. As we were travelling by motorcycle the covered parking and bike wash area was appreciated. Casinos in two of the buildings made for handy fun, and the shuttle from building #1 while it was pouring rain was wonderful. Dinner buffet at... More

Came here with a bus tour so not sure of the rates. I can say this though. Hike from building #3 to the main building was a lot. Yes, there are golf cart rides but not always accessible without waiting. Hotel outside of town made it difficult to get into town when on a time crunch. No fridge in room.... More

This hotel is awesome, what more can I say. They have a great buffet for breakfast & dinner plus shuttle service from the buildings that aren't directly connected to the casino. They also have a late night deli if you missed dinner or get the munchies.

Motel 8 beats this place! Don't expect hair conditioner, mini fridge, or any basic amenities you'd expect in a hotel. Just a bed and a toilet. .. oh and the cheapest Wal-Mart insignia tv you've ever seen. Also had the cleaner bug us earlier in the morning to see if we were leaving when check out is at noon! Spend...
