Great Place.....fun People who work there....We arrived and were able to watch the Nebraska Football Game....wound up with 15 or 20 total watching. The staff is friendly....and the Rooms are clean...(5 staff clean 90 rooms)....always enjoy staying here....we have many times...probably our favorite place in Deadwood!

Hotel has the charm of turn of the century. The rooms need some renovating but loved it. For $20 per night special, you cannot beat it. The rooms reminded me of being back at my grandmother's house in the country. We will be back. You're stay comes with one free drink per day per person in the group.

We stayed at the Franklin hotel for our anniversary. We had the most delightful suite, it was called the Kennedy Suite. The room was so historic and beautiful. Filled with antiques that were just lovely. I see that some people have said that it is run down and not in good shape, I would totally disagree with that. It is... More

the look of the building and hallways looks historic but when you get into the rooms not so much. They do have the cool, old time push button light switches but the furnishings were less than desirable. The bed skirt was torn, there was hair and a bug on the pillows of the bed. The room only has a small... More

I stayed here the first time on my 21st birthday, and now my husband and I always try to stay here whenever we visit Deadwood. It's historical. As such, we are well aware that it's imperfect. Cleanliness hasn't ever been an issue when we've stayed, nor should it be - old isn't synonymous with dirty. This certainly isn't the place... More

Suppose to stay 2 nights but my wife couldn't take the "musty smell" in room....would recommend you stay anywhere else than at this hotel....travel all over the country, and have for years, and being from Rapid City would never have expected to encounter a more unprofessional Management Staff.....

The hotel is historical, so it will have a little older odor. It is by far not modern as the light switches are still push buttons. I think that adds to the experience. There is great architecture in the hotel and has a wonderful location for downtown deadwood. the price was fantastic and would recommend this hotel. Please realize that... More

We went to Deadwood for the Wine Corks and Forks event. It was a nice hotel, definitely on the older side, but great atmosphere! The food was good & casino was nice. My only complaint was that it was very warm and there was no air conditioning! They were very accommodating and got us the rooms we needed. Check in... More
