Everything about this hotel is wonderful! Mike and Cynthia are wonderful hosts as are all their employees. The hotel is unique and gives you that old west feeling. Deadwood is a fun town. We can't wait to return next summer!! Look no further for a wonderful place to stay.

Thank you for being our guest, and we are anxious to host you again next summer! Our building is unique, constructed in 1898 as a livestock feed store. In it's years it has served as the town's post office, library, and lodging facility. Great effort was spent saving many of the Victorian features in the restoration, and the "old west"... More

We stayed at the Iron Horse during the 76th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff/service was excellent. They were friendly, courteous, and provided everything we asked for and then some. The location is only a block and a half to Deadwood main street which made it very convenient to shop, grab a bite, grab a... More

Thank you for your kind words, and for being our guest. I will pass along your compliments to our staff. They work very hard to provide clean, comfortable rooms and accommodating service.

We have stayed at the Iron Horse 6 times. Suggest if you are booking for the rally to book early. Slots are great fun. Restaurant is very good. People are very nice. Block off main street next to the Depo with on site parking! Thanks Mike and staff!!

We rode motorcycles into Deadwood and reserved rooms at the Iron Horse Inn. To be able to talk with the owner himself so many times on the phone in preparation for the trip, made us feel like we were coming to his home. The staff were exceptionally helpful and Mike (the owner) checked on us each evening to make suggestions... More

Appalling check in process. No desk just go to cashier at casino desk (and wait........) eventually someone will appear to check you inn. Our room was a cupboard, on checking out we were told by an employee we had the worst room in the hotel. Many rooms were not occupied so that is not good business. Casino is dead!! Management...

Thank you for your review, and for being our guest. Our rooms do vary in size due to the historic nature of our property. Had we known, and if available, we would have tried to move you to a larger room. During the busy summer season most of our rooms are booked, causing an occasional short wait for check-in.

Watch for the stone horse head over the door, it is original to the building. Casino portion is usually empty and you check in at the lobby next door, which is connected. Pretty slim pickings for parking and you need to search for a breakfast place at a reasonable price- the attached former gas bar is ok - but a... More

Thank you for your nice review, and for being our guest. The horse head carved from the natural sandstone that overlooks the front door is truly a unique feature of our 1898 building. She has mystified visitors for over a century! The building was originally constructed as a feed store for horses, thus the sculpture was carved. Parking is always... More

I love that this hotel is in a historic building and that they kept the authentic details when it was remodeled. I loved the high ceilings and the stain glass transoms with the room numbers.

Stayed in room 301. This is an adorable corner room with windows on 2 sides! The hotel is walking distance to the entire town. Casino on first floor. There are 2 hotels in one building, one of the second floor and Iron Horse on the 3rd. Check in is at the cashier desk in the casino.

Love the Iron Horse Inn- clean, great corner room (301) great view of city, walking distance to town. Lots of gambling and close to several attractions. Friendly and accommodating staff. Must visit the midnight star! They let us in to look around while they were closed. Even tho they were closed they served up breakfast and it was great!
