“A nice place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

It is obvious that the owners are updating the hotel and doing all they can to make it comfortable for guests. We reserved three rooms for a Friday night and were all very happy with the accommodations. The deck out back is a real nice feature, as was the offstreet parking. This is a small hotel with lots of character added to each room.

Room Tip: Some rooms have jacuzzis which is fun.

The rooms were nicely updated and Jake was very accommodating. we had 3 rooms for our whole party. They have a nice patio area where we could all hang out after a long day of fun in the hills.

Jake made us feel right a home. We loved the theme of the hotel. The room to gather at night downstairs was a add plus that most hotels do not have.

There is new ownership so I can't speak to the older reviews. The place was very nice, totally redone and is being managed and looked after by a young couple, Jake and Hanna. They were awesome. They were always able and willing to help us were very knowledgeable of the area. Plus they were very easy to just sit down and chat with. The whole place was was clean and comfy, we could come and go as we please, and it was fantastically cheap for my friend and I. Internet was very fast. Parking in the back was a huge bonus too!
Definitely gonna come back

What a ripoff this place was. No parking is just the beginning of the issues with this place. The rooms are very small as are the bathrooms, the only thing that did work right was the cable tv.

If you like New York style apts sizes for a hotel room, then this place is for you. We were all highly dissappointed in all the hype this place got, and will never stay there again and will tell all our friends about this ripoff hotel.

The pricing for these rooms is outrageous for what you get. Stay down the street for half price and large spacious rooms.

  • Liked — cable tv
  • Disliked — room size for price

A group of us booked and stayed at this hotel while in the area for Kool Deadwood Nites in Deadwood--the picture that we saw on the website did not protray it very well. We were expecting king size beds and found them to be full size, the rooms were very small and the bathrooms were very small. We made the best of the situation, but will never stay there again!!!
It was very over priced for what we got!!!
