My friend and I stayed at the Historic Bullock Hotel in Deadwood, SD, from May 4-9, 2014 and it made our whole vacation. Both of us are picky travelers and ALWAYS find something to complain about. Not at the Bullock. The decor was absolutely gorgeous and fitting with the theme of a historic hotel. The beds were very comfortable and the water pressure and temperatures were more than acceptable. The rooms were clean and the smell of floral potpourri was not overpowering but clean, fresh, and inviting. The lobby and public areas were clean and inviting as well. As if this wasn't enough to make our stay great, the staff was more than hospitable, offering assistance wherever they could, sometimes going above and beyond. My friend's birthday occurred during our stay and the staff went out of their way to make it a great day for her. Lucy, the general manager, runs a tight ship but still has time to step outside for conversation and the entire staff is pleasant and knowledgeable about the hotel itself as well as the city of Deadwood. During our stay we could tell that the staff took pride in their hotel and the jobs they do there. We will definitely be going back to Deadwood and our home away from home, the Historic Bullock Hotel.
Let me go a bit further and comment on the restaurant within the hotel, Bully's. John makes the best breakfast and we can highly recommend any item on the menu and some that are not such as the cowboy scramble. As you eat your wonderfully cooked and flavorful breakfast, you can enjoy the decor and learn a bit about the history of Deadwood. By the way, the fireplace in Bully's is fabulous with its beautiful tile work and ornate mantle.
All in all, the Historic Bullock Hotel played a big role in making this year's vacation one of the best ever. I highly recommend staying here for a hotel with homey comfort combined with the beauty an elegance of the late 19th and early 20th century. While you're there, maybe Seth Bullock himself will drop by to say hello!
