We traveled here in 2018. I liked it because it felt old and historic like I was stepping back in time. The room was definitely not modern so this hotel may not be for everyone. There was also a play/gunfight in front of the hotel at 6pm. We also enjoyed the breakfast at the hotel. Super convenient to everything in Deadwood at a good price.

Our room looked like it could fall apart at any moment--huge cracks in the wall, ceiling tiles falling down. It was dingy and dirty. Staff were friendly overall.

The image and thought of the Historic Franklin is cool! But, sadly the mattresses and comforters are historic as well. No coffee in the rooms and our non smoking room reaked of smoke.

Friendly staff. Ceiling crumbling down. No hot water, but that was fixed, not enough plug ins.

Loved the old west theme of the room. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. Good pricing too. Only thing I thought was petty was I was playing the slots in their casino and was offered a free drink. My husband was with be but not playing. He was refused a comp drink because he was not playing even though he was with me and we were guests , other than that very nice

Our bathroom was not built for one at a time. Very tight with one. Mirrors and lighting are poor. Bed was adequate bedding is old. The veranda was nice. The public restroom was very nice. Our meals at legends were very good. Front desk was short staffed. No tables were open in the hotel. Staff was pleasant even though they were just so short staffed. We will not stay here again

Older room liked the design. Got what i expected from an old hotel.

We have started here twice and never have hot water in the morning

Beds were as old as the hotel and had to flush the toilet by hand. said something at the end of the stay and got no response from the desk people. Not worth the $800 for 2 nights.

Great location, clean room. wonderful staff, amazing restaurant

I did not realize I was booking a smoking room when I booked this,my bad. The smell was so terrible. I considered getting a different hotel. There are no windows for ventilation and the ashtrays that were left in the room still had ashes in it. The beds and pillows are not comfortable. Overall a terrible experience.

Hotel is in a very handy location and full of historic character.

Great historic hotel. Dated but In a great way.

Wonderful historic hotel. Because of it's age there is some quirkiness (small bathrooms) but other than that it was a wonderful place to stay. Excellent restaurant and gaming on site. My favorite was the veranda-a great place to watch the gunfight by the Deadwood Live! players.

We had a smoking room that I didnt request. It is a historic hotel so windows didn’t open and I swear there was 100 years of smoke build up in there. When you opened the door the odor was overwhelming. Also firniture was piled ip in the hallways and the carpet was lifting up so kept catching my shoe on it. Could not wait to leave in yhe morning- was gone by 8 am.

It is very close to shops and casinos in Deadwood, South Dakota. Casinos are on the bottom floor. Lots of history in the building itself. Lots of things to do in the surrounding area too.
