Don't know what the owners are like, we never saw them. They left us a note saying "Treat this place like your home". If I had done, I would have been up all night cleaning out the fridge and throwing away the mouldy cheese (which I did anyway) and out-of-date eggs. Cleaning the coffe maker and pot (which we did...

There are drunken people from the Bar's around yelling in Front oft the house,you can't sleep. The room stinks like a thrift shop and the bed it's verry old and ugly like the sticky couch. The poorest Palace I ever stayd!!!!!! NEVER AGAIN

Each of the theme rooms is unique and quirky. Make sure to look at the website photos and decide what suits your own interests. We enjoyed the Miners Room and all of its doo-dads and knick knacks. It was roomy and clean, and we were very comfortable. The communal kitchen was stocked, and we easily made breakfast and had a... More

We like local color and this place was great. It was full of things ranging from French antiques to junk store finds. It was fun to look around and constantly see something new. We never saw our hosts but felt at home in our large suite and the kitchen. Breakfast was self serve with a good variety of cereals and... More

I could have lived with the smell of an antique store and the cluttered rooms, but sleeping on a mattress that might be as old as the rhyolite building itself is unacceptable. I won't speak for all the rooms, but make sure you don't get the Miner's room unless you enjoy sleeping on your great grandmother's mattress.

Hot Springs is off the Mt Rushmore beaten path. The Smith Fargo Suites is a wonderful place to stay in this quite town on the southern edge of the black hills. We stayed in the Mission suite three nights. The suite has a full size sitting room, separate room with a queen size bed, and around the corner, a room... More

Smith Fargo Suites is a renovated, historic tenement house that has been converted into a group of "eccentric," period, bed and breakfast suites. The owners, Dick and Liz, 80 plus year-old youngsters, have done an outstanding job of renovating the building and the suites are delightfully uncommon in all respects. Each suite is decorated with a theme motif and the... More

For a getaway weekend my husband and I picked the Oriental Suite and enjoyed all the beautiful Asian furnishings and amenities in the room as well as the food in the community kitchen. Liz also gave us a tour of all the other rooms that were amazingly decorated also, especially the wonderful rock walls in the Mission and Cowboy Suites!... More

For value for money, I give it a 5 star. Dick and Liz Smith were so hospitable and welcoming. They were so sweet to find toys for our little one and she was just over the moon. We stayed at the miner's suite, it was bigger than I had expected. It's a king size bed in a room and a... More

“The suites are above an antique store owned by Dick and Liz and a long stairway leads upward with no elevator. A chair lift is available, if needed, but suitcases will have to be brought up by hand.”
