“Historic Bullock Hotel”
Reviewed 13 October 2011

We had tried to get a room at Casino Jacks at the edge of town, but they were full up so we tried the Bullock Hotel. What a lucky turn of events! Our room at the Bullock Hotel was best place we stayed during our 3,000 mile road trip. Vicki at the front desk was terrific. She offered us a special deal on her favorite "haunted" room. We didn't encounter the ghost, but did enjoy the comfortable beds, the antique furniture and the big bathroom. The Bullock is a special place right in the heart of downtown within walking distance to all the sights.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rm 211

chose this hotel because it had smoking rooms, but when we inquired at the service desk for an ashtray, we were told all rooms are now non-smoking,and the website had not been updated to reflect this. we were naturally upset, because this is the reason we chose to stay at this hotel and we had been there for a few hours already without knowing this. nothing was mentioned at check-in.
the room itself was nice-with a separate vanity area in the room, which we appreciated. you do have to go downstairs to the reception desk for ice, however, and the drinks and food were not good. the location was very good -right on main st.
all in all, i would not stay there again at this hotel.

Stayed at the Bullock Hotel recently for my birthday. Unfortunately, not the least bit scary, but service was attentive. Rooms are adequate. Great location on Main Street!
Accommodations were adequate. Parking across the street at the back of the building.

Room Tip: I would rent a corner suite if available. Other rooms are average. Some, like 210 and 208 have bad...

We visited Deadwood on our last night of a week-long vacation this past Tuesday night. Check in was easy and our room was ready for us when we arrived. Parking is in the back of the building, not on Main Street, there is a lot that appeared to be shared with the Celebrity Hotel next door, and they give you a pass to hang on your rear-view mirror so that you can park there for free. Our room was 203, nice corner room facing Main Street with 2 queen beds. We opted for that over 1 King because of the Main St. view. Our room had a bit of light all night because of this, although it was quiet and we did not hear noise from the street. But, upon saying this, it was a very quiet night that night. If you have any concerns about staying in this "haunted" hotel, this is the room for you because it does not get pitch dark in there! We had no ghostly experiences here, and we were very comfortable and slept well. The room was clean and nice and we loved the Victorian feel of the place. You can hear other rooms' showers through the vents in the morning though, although this really did not bother us. We didn't eat here, but they do offer breakfast and lunch, but are closed for dinner. We had dinner at Miner's Den Steakhouse which is a short walk up Main Street. We loved, it, one of the best steaks that I have ever had, and my husband loved his prime rib too. Before that we visited Moriah's Cemetary to visit the graves of Seth Bullock, sheriff of Deadwood back in the day and owner of Bullock Hotel, Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. There were many, many other gravesites there and we did walk around some before we went to dinner. We ended up back at the Bullock and played some slots, but they weren't winning that night! They do offer free well drinks, beer, and wine if you are gambling, and our waitress, Sabrina, was very nice and showed up often to make sure we were taken care of. She was a pleasure and made us feel welcome. I would not hesitate to stay at the Bullock hotel again, and Deadwood is definately worth seeing if you are in the area! Also, Deadwood was a good last night stop for us as it took only 45 minutes to get to Rapid City to catch our flight home. We LOVED South Dakota!

Room Tip: We enjoyed facing Main Street but I'm sure that other rooms are lovely in the back of the hotel...

They had a little trouble with our reservation, but sorted it out satisfactorily. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The restaurant staff were a bit overwhelmed. But I would stay there, again, if I had the occasion.

Room Tip: Second floor front corner room is very nice.

I enjoyed staying here as well as my trip to Deadwood, SD. The room we had was #309 and I guess some rooms are "more haunted" than others. We did not experience any kind of supernatural experiences although I will add at times the air conditioner made a "funny" humming noise when I was alone in the room and twice during the night went off and room got hot. But since there was a stand up fan in the room we figured this may happen from time to time. The sheets were more polyester/cotton and seemed to make a person sweat more.The room was gorgeous. The ceilings were red! The decor was so nice and 2 sinks made getting dressed and showered easier for 2 people. The price was high, we thought, but our desire to stay here evidently outweighed this factor. The elevator and front desk check-in was cramped. Check in and unloading is in the back of hotel, which we did not like. I might stay here again if I am ever in Deadwood, but unlikely. I will recommend it though, since it is historic and certainly better than staying at some of the others..

The Bullock Hotel is a masterpiece of old Deadwood, with tons of character and charm. Our room was large, clean, quiet, but without ghosts. Sitting in the very downtown of Deadwood the hotel commands more visual attention than any other building. We're very happy we stayed there. Don't fail to visit Mt. Moriah Cemetery and climb all the way to Seth Bullock's gravesite to pay homage to the man who built the hotel.
