“A great hotel and great buy in Deadwood”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Very wonderful hotel in Deadwood. First Gold is at the north end of town away from a lot of the hustle and noise. Very quiet comfortable room. Very friendly staff. Check in was easy and check out was fast. A real good place to stay in Deadwood to enjoy and you are only 1 hour east of the all the Black Hills attraction, Rushmore,Custer State Park and Crazy Horse. Food was excellent and casino was fun.

We were given a prize that was a complimentary stay here. We liked the hotel a lot. The rooms were very clean and spacious. We had a great view of the mountainside from our room. The location of the hotel was convenient to a lot of tourist attractions. Staff that we met were all very friendly and helpful.
We tried the dinner and breakfast buffetts. They were pretty good. The Prime Rib and Crab Legs were a nice treat.
Good choice when visiting Deadwood.

We had a great time staying at this hotel. The room was super clean. Check in was fast, easy, and the staff was great. The casino was really nice and their food was great. I loved the omelet bar. We will be staying there again on our next trip to Deadwood.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was very clean and nice. Hotel checking in was easy. Service in the casino was great. Good parking and a easy walk to the casino. Or they have a free shuttle what will drop you off at the from door.

Room Tip: We were in building # 3 which is not attached to the casino. Very quiet nights sleep.

Last minute schedule of room on way home from longer vacation. Room was good, bed is a little hard and shower head was little difficult to use. Personnel checking you in were for the most part friendly but not overly helpful when requesting information from them.

Sorry to hear there was an issue with the showers - in the main building, the shower is activated by pulling a ring at the end of the faucet - there should be signs in the shower itself to indicate that and we will make sure those are in place.

If you are looking for a clean place to stay First Gold for you. Its not fancy by any means but serves its purpose for getting a good night sleep. The numbering system of the rooms can be confusing. Some of the 200 numbered rooms are on the third floor. As far as the casino it probably one of the better ones in Deadwood. As far as its restaurant this is where it shines. They have to have some of the best crab legs on Friday and Saturday Nights. These are far better crab legs then I ever had anywhere else. First Gold is a must if visiting Deadwood.

So glad to hear you enjoyed your meals at the Gold Nugget Buffet! For the hotel - the room numbers start with a digit to indicate a particular building, and we will work to better communicate that to our guests. Thanks much for your review!

Stayed 3 nights here while we travelled around taking in the sights. It was cheap and clean. There is no restaurant but there are plenty places to eat close by. You can get a 'cart' into Deadwood itself and we enjoyed Kevin Costner's bar as well as the bar in which Wild Bill Hickok was killed.
The room was spacious with a good view of the surrounding hills. Maid service was provided each day and provided us with fresh towels and tea and coffee supplies. There is a coffee machine in the bathroom. Overall, we would stay here again.

Great to hear that you made FirstGold your base of operations for your trip to Deadwood! We are very proud of the great job done by our housekeepers.

Should you come our way again, we hope that you'll take advantage of our breakfast, lunch, and dinner service at the Gold Nugget Buffet - located in the main building just one flight (or elevator ride) down from the main gaming floor. There is also a deli on the gaming floor of the main building open every evening.
