Hotel is old but nice, it has character. If you are looking for shiny and new this isn’t for you. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Gave us good recommendations. They have a casino but the noise couldn’t be heard in our room.

The location of this hotel is great. Lots of good restaurants, a bit of shopping and casinos everywhere. After being out every day sightseeing it was nice to walk to have happy hour and a nice dinner. The hotel is very old, felt a bit tired. Our room on the third floor was spacious except for the bathroom. Lighting wasn’t good, street noise kept us awake. Even the loud music in the lobby seemed over the top. Didn’t see much staff as we always took the stairs. There is an elevator but was a bit too creaky for me. There was no service because of COVID so that only made it seem worse than it might have been. There was coffee available in the lobby which was nice.

We do want to thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. Happy to see your comments about our location but I won't lie that I was disappointed to see that you felt the hotel (originally built in 1892) felt a bit tired. We will be renovating the rooms to bring them up to our new Club at Iron Horse level and have begun that renovation now that the shortened summer season has past. The elevator's rollers are also being replaced now that the summer season is over. We hope you will give us another chance the next time you visit Deadwood and see the changes which will be completed this fall and winter. Your comments will be taken into consideration as we make our room renovations and upgrades so thank you again for taking the time to let us know where you felt we could improve!

The staff at the Iron Horse Inn and Casino were OVER THE TOP - couldn't have asked for anything more. They went the distance to assure our stay was nothing short of perfection, Ken and Tracy were so accommodating - took care of all our needs and even some we didn't ask for - they are worth their weight in Gold to the owner of this Inn. And Troy, he put the icing on the cake to assure our stay was a deluxe one - we saw him in the parking lot one morning as we were leaving for the day and he made the comment that he had halted the workers doing renovations to wait till we were not sleeping and we wouldn't be disturbed. This kind of consideration and attention to details far surpasses any other hotel or inn we have stayed at. It was the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at - SQUEEGY CLEAN! They left no stone unturned to maintain a sanitary environment and surpassed all recommendations to keep us safe during the COVID/19 Pandemic. Next year we'll definitely be back.

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend. Over priced for what the rooms really are. I understand its a older historic hotel but some updates and accommodations need to be upgraded for this day in age. Rooms were very small and outdated. The outlets didn't work in the room. linens need to be updated towels were like sandpaper. We were told there would be a fridge and microwave but there were none of these to be found in the room. I was involved in an elevator incident where me and three other passengers were stuck between the 1st and 2nd floor. The owner of the hotel accused my boyfriend of jumping and causing the elevator to stop. The elevator had several noticeable glitches including the door and emergency button malfunction among several obvious mechanical problems causing it to be faulty. My card was charged for the elevator repair without my knowledge for damages that were already pr-existing to the elevator the owner didn't have the decency to contact me about the incorrect charge to my account. The owner also told us that he only has problems with the elevator when larger people are on it.

I don't know that I can say anything more than my response to your friend's review below. I could post the video of your party in the elevator that caused it to malfunction, but I will refrain from doing so. I wish you well.

Be aware prior to staying at this hotel !!! They will charge your credit card without asking if they believe you broke the elevator. $421.47 to be exact not including the over priced room. This hotel rarely sees upgrades from the looks of it. When the opportunity arises to charge its guest for unexpected elevator failures ... expect to be charged. Also , we had to climb through an escape hatch on top of the elevator into the elevator shaft of the building. Don’t expect the call for help button to work because it didn’t. Thank god someone had a cell phone on them otherwise who knows how long we would have been trapped in the elevator.The owner even explained that it happens when “bigger people” ride it. I absolutely recommend people to steer clear of this establishment and to look elsewhere.

In the years that I have owned the hotel, I have never fired a customer. Brenden, congratulations, you have an achieved a first! Booze is a wonderful product. While it may lead one to believe they are much more intelligent than their IQ score might indicate, trust me, it is a mirage. Yes you were charged for breaking the elevator when you jumped up and down when it was operating. (Keep your "day job." The video of your gymnastic attempt verifies the Olympics are not in your future.) In this case the elevator stops as a safety feature, and it's governor must be reset by the elevator repair man. I immediately called the repair man who had to travel from Rapid City to fix the problem you created not only for you and I, but the other 30+ guests staying with us that night. In an effort to not make you wait in the elevator car for his arrival, I carried the ladder up 2 flights of stairs and rescued you and your party. You are welcome. When it came time to pay the piper, you didn't believe that the amount to be fair. In my view, calling the 74 year old elevator repair man at 7pm on a Saturday night to travel 50+ miles one way to address the problem was a bargain. I charged your card exactly what I paid. I provided you with a copy of his invoice. I charged you nothing for my efforts, or for leaving my wife at the restaurant where we were dining. I wish you well on your travels, and should you consider returning to our town, please, DO NOT STAY HERE!
