“Best Place to Stay for Bikers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

My husband and I spent 4 days in Deadwood (our first visit) and were very impressed with the Mineral Palace. Having traveled almost 1,200 miles, our Harley was riddled with bug splatterings. We were pleasantly suprised to see not only do they provide secure, covered parking for bikers, but also provided hoses and clean rags to wash the bikes! We have traveled all over the western U.S. and have never been to a hotel that provided this service. The first night, we had dinner at the Gem Restaurant and the food and service were excellent. The servers, bartenders, front desk, and everyone working there are very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. Our only complaint was we were on the 2nd floor, and the folks directly above us on the 3rd floor made very noisy footsteps, usually around 2:15 in the morning, to the point, that my husband had to call the front desk on the second night of our stay and complain. Other then that nuisance, we loved staying at the Mineral Palace.

Room Tip: Ask for a floor on the 3rd floor to avoid hearing feet stomping above you!

Thank you for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. We host many Motorcycle riders throughout the season, and have listened to their needs. We are delighted to hear you appreciated the little extra service. We are very proud of our small town friendly staff, some of which are on duty all night to take care of those “nuisances” that can keep you awake. Come back and see us soon.

The rooms were quite nice with some special treats: nightly turndown service with candy or cookies left for us. A souvenior rubber duckie on the bath tub. Nice unexpected gestures to make the stay memorable. Would like to give a 5.o, but did not include breakfast, but the competition at the other downtown Hotels did not either (we checked when we booked).

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. We agree, little unexpected gestures go a long way in making a traveler feel special. Remember, you may use the money you spend on your room, in the Restaurant, and in the Gift Shop to add points to your Palace Perks Players Club Card. And in no time at all, your breakfast will be free.

We stayed at the Mineral Palace last weekend, and would highly recommend. They were fast with check-in and the rooms were clean and updated. A bowl of fruit was at the check-in desk, which made for a quick, healthy snack after a long drive. Complimentary valet parking was available and at night they had a turndown service with fresh cookies. We only at the restaurant for breakfast, but it was very good! Will definitely stay there again!

Thank you for your positive feedback. We have been updating our rooms all winter long. Thank you for noticing. It is difficult to find fresh fruit when you are on the road, and we find our guests enjoy it anytime of day or night, and we are the only Deadwood hotel to offer nightly turndown service. We hope the next time you are here you have a chance to eat dinner in the Gem Steakhouse. You will definitely not be disappointed!

Stayed here for four nights early June, we stayed in the VIP suite. Everything about this hotel was very good. Ate every meal here except for one, was very good every time. The valet parking made things really easy. Really enjoyed the lay out of the casino, a bunch of rooms with forty to sixty machines in them, never felt crowded at all. First time to Deadwood and really enjoyed it, I might have to exchange one of my trips during the year to vegas for Deadwood.

Being a local I can't say much about the hotel as I've never stayed in there before, but the food is great! Steaks are amazing and I love the bacon cheese burgers. I eat there quite often with my aunt as she's a frequent player there. I do play the machines a bit there and seem to do fairly well. I have heard great things about the rooms there too. Would highly recommend to anyone coming through Deadwood, SD! :D

Thank you for sharing your experience. There’s nothing better than a local endorsement! We agree, our food is consistently good, and very affordable. We have over 300 different machines on our gaming floor to choose from, as well as 6 live table games. Stop by the hotel front desk the next time you’re here. We would be happy to show you our guest rooms.

This hotel is comfortable, clean, convenient and the staff was super! The bartenders and the waitresses were so much fun. We didn't eat at the restaurant since it closed at 9:00 pm on Sunday night. Chocolates and cookies left in the room for us was a nice touch, as was the rubber duckie in the large bathroom.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We believe people come to Deadwood to have a good time, and we are happy to hear you were able to relax and have some fun. We are the only Deadwood hotel to offer turndown service, complete with locally made chocolates and fresh baked cookies. Now that summer has arrived, our Gem Restaurant/Steakhouse is open from 7am to 10pm, and we hope you come back to experience one of the finest steaks in Deadwood.
