My husband and I recently visited Deadwood for the South Dakota Festival of Books. I am a writer and had several workshops to attend in town. This time, we stayed at the Franklin Hotel (because The Bullock was full) and it was a huge disappointment compared with my previous trips to Deadwood, where I stayed at The Bullock.
Since I love The Bullock so much, I thought I'd tell everyone why it's the best place to stay in Deadwood. First, the rooms retain historic integrity and Victorian charm WITHOUT sacrificing modern amenities. The rooms have all been renovated for the ultimate comfort of the traveler in mind (unlike the Franklin). The Bullock also has an amazing casino area which is calm, peaceful and relatively quiet unlike the other hotel casinos in Deadwood. The service and staff are fantastic, and Bully's (the restaurant) serves great quality food for affordable prices. The hotel's rich history is emphasized in old photographs throughout the hotel, as well as photographs and letters from others who have stayed at the hotel. The Ghost Tour on Fridays and Saturdays at 7 pays homage to Bullock's ghost who still supposedly haunts the hotel. It is a great tour!
The main reason I love this hotel is the clean, comfortable rooms. You will get a good night's sleep in a nice room while enjoying the historic charm of this old hotel.
