I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel. We were going to celebrate a late valentine in Deadwood and everything was ridiculously expensive so I went with Town hall because it was decently priced and the reviews were good. I was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. I love staying in historical places and I have forgone...

It makes us warm and fuzzy all over - the fact that you found us by chance to celebrate your Valentine's Day with us at the Town Hall Inn! We love reviews like this, people finding us by chance when looking in Deadwood, (after all, we are only a couple miles from the famous, western, gambling mecca - Deadwood!) I'm...

Town Hall Inn is charming with well chosen décor, large rooms with large windows in a great location in Lead. What really makes the stay though is Jade and her husband - they are warm, welcoming and fun! If you questions about things to do, where to eat or about the town of Lead they are a wealth of knowledge....

We were heading to Deadwood for a concert and didn't want to stay in Deadwood itself. We checked tripadvisor and found the Town Hall Inn in Lead just a few miles from Deadwood. We loved our experience at the Town Hall Inn. The building is historic, our suite was perfect for two of us. Everything was clean, the beds very...

Oh Nancy, your review is so sweet... We always love it when folks like you stumble across our little Inn. We certainly are only minutes from Deadwood, but the experience in Lead is "Miles from ordinary..."

I am writing this review for my parents as they aren't very tech. savvy... Folks chose the Town Hall Inn - versus the other larger hotels in the area because they are pretty precise when it comes to standards of cleanliness!

Friendly staff to check us in and the owners were friendly, available and offered good tips on what to see in the area and where to eat.

We stayed two nights with our 14 year old daughter. We loved the ambiance but, she thought it was a little dated.

We greatly enjoyed this converted city hall. All the rooms were period correct with modern amenities. We wanted to stay a second time on our return trip from vacation, but to our regret they were fully booked. Great history and a great price. I recommend seeking it out if you are in the Black Hills area

I AM NODDING MY HEAD IN AGREEMENT, REALLY! Your description of Lead is spot on - our proximity to The Black Hills is what delights so many, including me!

I stayed at the Town Hall Inn and I have a reservation to stay there again in June. This place is incredibly well preserved and the rooms are big.
