Great location. Clean room, but tiny. We don't spend much time in our room usually so this place worked fine for us. Would stay here again. Friendly staff. Has an elevator. Don't know what else to say.

Thank you for being our guest, and for your nice review. I think that you summarized our property quite well.....clean room, good location, friendly staff, affordable. Our rooms do vary in size due to the historic nature of our building, so a larger room might be available if the one that you purchased is not adequate. I will pass along...

We were in town for a wedding and stayed at the Iron Horse Inn. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The management staff is warm and friendly, and I would highly recommend this hotel on your next visit to Deadwood! A very good value!

We arrived in Deadwood early on the afternoon of first stay and were given our rooms without a problem. We went to the bar to relax and the bartender was friendly and helped us with information on all great places to eat in the area. The common areas were all done in the colors of the period and the theme...

Thank you for your nice review, and for being our guest. There are typically no problems checking in "early" here, if the rooms are clean and ready for occupancy.

My husband and never go to Deadwood without booking this amazing inn! It is small and quiet. The front desk people go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is in walking distance to main street! Casino is fun and has some great games that you don't really see anymore. Our favorite part is the historic rooms....

Our stay was great and the staff was amazing! Adam checked us in, and was also our bartender and casino cashier. He was friendly and we had quite a few laughs with him.

We had a great stay here because of the friendly staff. Would definitely come back. The room was very reasonably priced as well due to the slow week day. Upon arriving and checking in, we ultimately decided to spend our trip only at the hotel because we enjoyed our experience so much.

We went to Deadwood to experience the old west vibe and this historic hotel was a perfect fit. Its not too fancy, it honors its historic past and the little restaurant attached was a great breakfast spot! I really liked that it was so close to everything, we could walk everywhere we wanted to go.
