“The nicest people!”
Reviewed August 28, 2005

We stayed here many times. The beds in the new terrace are the best! The people are more than friendly! I needed to send this in light of our last trip to Deadwood. Being Kool Deadwood nights, the place was packed and we had our boys,(ages 10 and 12) with us. We stopped here on the way home, a 3 hr drive, as I love to go there to play. Unfortunately, our '55 decided to lose it's starter! It was a Sunday aft. and my husband was off vacation at midnight and the boys had school. The maintenance man and security man helped us to get on the road again. They jumped it, brought tools, tried to find an open parts store,(even in a nearby town), and went out of their way to fix the problem. They even took starters off other vehicles AND the owner let us take his starter off his personal van, and if it didn't work he was going to let us take the van home and return it. I will be forever grateful and will try to stay there next time! Make your reservations early!!

I had never been to Deadwood before and was unsure what to expect, but we were treated very well here. The rooms were clean with a comfortable temperature and atmosphere, the food was wonderful, and the staff VERY polite and helpful. We actually stayed at the Terrace, but it was a very pleasant experience all around. It only took us a few minutes to walk downtown (we declined the trolley, but was nice to know it was there if needed), and we really got a chance to see the town. We will defineately be back!!

We stayed at 1st gold hotel upper for our honeymoon.The reason being they allow pets, I wasn't sure if we had to bring our dog and this was of the only places for pets.Location is not the best if you very want the deadwood experienced.It was nice,But nothing fancy.The only concern I had was if we woould have brought the dog there was NO GRASS and where close to hotel for her to go.I really wish other hotels would allow pets with a nice area for them,Most of us treat our pets as people and would love for them to be able to travel with us,Looking forward to are next trip to deadwood in Sept.

we stayed at the first gold hotel in july 2005. the room was very clean and had all the ammenities we needed. the staff was helpful and courteous. the restaurant had great food. if you didn't want to walk between the hotel and the terrace motel(which is part of the first gold hotel) they would take you in a golf cart. it was only a 15 minute walk to the center of downtown. if that was too far to walk there was a trolley that would take you there for 50 cents. the staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. there were cookies,soda,beer, and hot appetizers that were available to the customers in the gambling room. it didn't hurt that the price to stay there was almost half of any other place in town. we would stay there again next time we visited deadwood. kathy and roger

dave and the staff at the first gold are just that first. our stay was relaxing from comfort in the room to dinning and gaming.we have stayed at several hotels in the past but have never had the kindness and thoughtfullness of your needs met like they were here. inexpensive breakfasts, i mean where can you eat for 2 for less than 5 bux.the new annex hotel is awesome with it being nonsmoking along with nonsmoking gaming. my health needs were dealt with immediately and have already reserved rooms for a return trip in 2005.
