I loved spending the night at this hotel. The employees are so accommodating and nice. Our room was big and the bed was very comfortable. I didn't dislike anything about this hotel. I would stay here again if it were just closer. Good job First Gold, first class all the way

I travel from upstate NY to Pahrump NV and back twice a year. I stay at different hotels on each trip. The First Gold Hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I brought my dogs and had the best room and stress free stay ever.

Came to Deadwood for a week of sightseeing and was glad that I spent the whole time at the First Gold Hotel: everything from the staff, room and facilities, food, etc. was simply top shelf and will stay there without reservation any time I'm in the area.

This is a nice hotel. Pleasant and quick check in. Parking was sufficient in their own parking garage that accommodated our truck and bike trailer. Room was clean and updated. Coffee convenient to the room available for free. The only very small inconvenience was that the food and casino was in a different building, a bit of a hilly walk...

We just stayed at First Gold in Deadwood during Mardi Gras weekend. I booked this hotel based on positive reviews and most importantly FREE CANCELLATION!! We drove 3.5 hours to get there with unpredictable weather, so we really needed the option to cancel. The front desk staff, 2 friendly ladies, were very welcoming and informative. We were in our room...

At the time of this writing, there are 4 weekend buffets in Deadwood- all the same features ( Prime & Crab) and all are about the same. This is the best of the 4, in my opinion. They stay on top of fresh hot food in the hot buffet, the salad bar & the desert bar are good and the...

If you are interested in the gambling, some portions of this facility are 100 yards or so away from the casino and restaurant. The rooms were "motel" type rooms and just ok. Rooms seemed to be clean, although well used.

First Gold is a perfectly fine hotel for the money. It was reasonably cheap, very clean, had a casino in it, and the staff was all awesome. The best parts were the friendly and helpful staff, and the value. The worst part wasn't a huge deal, but there are separate buildings, so you might be lodged a little ways away...
