We have stayed at the First Gold multiple times. For the price, you get a nice hotel. Clean rooms, covered parking, etc. However, in Deadwood all the action happens in the downtown area, which is a long walk from the First Gold (much longer than their website makes it sound). The last time we stayed there the First Gold and the local trolley service that shuttles tourists to the downtown area were in a feud, so the trolley was no longer able to service the First Gold. This meant long walks for us whenever we wanted to eat, go shopping, grab drinks, etc... The sidewalks were snow packed and sloppy and you follow the main highway to get downtown - not a pleasant walk. So overall, its a good hotel for the value, but if you plan to spend a lot of time downtown, you are much better off staying at one of the many hotels closer to that area of town.
