We stayed in the suite and the experience was perfect. The people running the operation were incredibly accommodating. No complaints as room was clean and the bed was excellent.

Awesome accommodations - tons of ambiance, amazing decorations and delicious scones for breakfast. Friendly staff, well worth the trip and the slightly higher price tag than other hotels in the area.

The girls were so accommodating to us! The bed was soooooooo soft and comfy and I loved the old claw foot tub in the room. Waking up to warm scones and coffee in the hall was amazing. Everything about our stay was wonderful. We will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here. We chose it because other TAs had mentioned the quaintness of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff. When you are in Deadwood, you want an appropriate cowboy type hotel - and this is what we got. It was a novelty having the claw foot bath in the bedroom - the toilet was in a tiny wee cupboard but that was part of the charm.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, one lady helped us up to our room with our luggage another helped me win on a slot machine! I liked the fact that it had slots on the ground floor. We were given complimentary drinks (wine) both before we went out for dinner and when we returned. Complimentary soft drinks available at all times from a 'fridge on our floor and complimentary tea, coffee and muffins available in the morning - served on fine china.
Centrally located, free parking. I'd definitely recommend it for an unusual but charming stay. Cost $296 for the 2 nights - about £185 - good value.

We booked here based on the other reviews, which you can read that covers the morning scones, refreshment refrigerator and all that.
We stayed in room 11, as other have said the bed was really comfortable, our HVAC worked great and we kept the room nice and cool.

One thing I hadn't seen mentioned, the rooms have transom windows above the doors, 2 in our case since the room has 2 doors. At night (around 9, not always on time) the hall lights are dimmed so it's less annoying, but still somewhat annoying. Seems to me that frosting the glass or just putting some type of curtain would be easier.
The doors have the old-style keyed locks, no way to lock the room from the inside, no deadbolt or chain lock.
The hotel is quite when it's empty, dead quiet. When it's full there's noise up and down the hall, the doors sort of have to be slammed to close, so there's noise there.
One morning at about 4am the hall lights came on full bright, that was unpleasant.

I guess I don't know what else to say, was it unpleasant? No. Was it "the best hotel in the world" as one traveler put it? No, maybe not even the best in Deadwood. Was it worth what I paid? No.

I don't have a lot to say on service, we checked in, were shown our room and that was the end of it, if you need ice you have to go to the casino and ask, and they'll get it from the basement.

I thought the parking was great, we parked in the check in spots and the private lot was very handy, there's a door at the opposite end of the building you can go in to get to the hotel, it's just stairs but sometimes beats the elevator.

Stayed a night here on our way from yellowstone to badlands. Deadwood is a very strange place - not exactly the technicolour world of Calamity Jane! Every single window on the street is filled with dreary slot machines including the downstairs of the Martin & Mason - quite strange to be taking your room key from a lady sitting behind bars (because it's also where they give out the change from for the casino). We also struggled to find anywhere to eat, because they were all upstairs so you couldn't see what you were getting before you went in. The diner at the back of the hotel looked pretty good but wasn't open in the evening. We ended up at a sports cafe called mustang sally's though which was pretty cool. The room itself was also pretty cool - you could definitely imagine butch cassidy or the sundance kid having a soak in the roll top bath! Slightly strange breakfast arrangements too - you go and collect a cookie and coffee from a communal trolley in the hall. V good cookies though!

My fiance and I decided at the last minute to go somewhere for the week end. We decided to go to Deadwood, SD. We went online and started shopping for some hotels. The Martin and Mason came up and I directly called the hotel to see if anything was available. The lady on the phone was so friendly and helpful. She gave us options and she even offered us a 25% discount on the room (joy of the last minute). She directed us to the website and we looked at some pictures of the hotel. Our room was the John Martin one (#4) and it was simply gorgeous with the victorian style. The room was extremely charming and super clean. The hotel offered high speed internet and there was a hair dryer and 32'TV screen. There was also a antique bath tub - a little bit too small for two tall people but so adorable!! We had a complimentary breakfast (coffee, tea, and muffins) served on a tray right front of the door in the morning :) and they also offered complimentary beverages all day long (water, sodas). The hotel is at a perfect location - tight front of teh Adams Museum and 20 seconds away from Main street, where it's louder than on Deadwood street where the hotel is. It was very quiet that niight and we slept so well. The bed was extremely comfortable!! I also need to mention that the hotel has a restaurant and a gambling area. We did not experience any of it but it looked very nice. There is also a parking for guests only which is nice since deadwood gets pretty busy and it's nice to have a place to park our car upon arrival.
I usually never write reviews because I usually never experience anything exceptional; but this time we had such a blast and the hotel was definitely one of the best part of our trips. Look no further if you are looking for a romantic getaway - The Martin and Mason Hotel is awesome!!!
Here are a coupel of things we also did while in Deadwood:
- city tour bus (located on Main street): great to know the history of Deadwood
- cemetery: Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's graves are there
- Broken Boot Gold mine: visit very interesting
- The trial of McCall: theatre and country music! Great show!!
- Kevin's Costner restaurant 'Jakes': awesome food - and very romantic place
- Costumes and Photo like in the old time - located on main street: kind of pricy $50 - but definitely worth it!
- on the way back, we went to Cheyenne Crossing restaurant located on HWY 14a and the food was great- They have the biggest pancakes I've ever seen and the breakfast are great!! Prices are extremely reasonable for the quantity they serve
- scenic byway 14a with water falls
