Deadwood Hotels

Set within the wilds of Black Hills National Forest, Deadwood will bring out the frontier adventurer in every visitor. Back in the 19th century, this mining town became notorious as a lawless haven for gunslingers, gamblers, and ladies of the night. The legend has lived on, spawning films, books, and the acclaimed TV drama sharing the city's name. It may be the 21st century, but in Deadwood you can follow in the footsteps of Wild Bick Hickock and Calamity Jane and soak up the exhilarating atmosphere of the Wild West.

Things to see

Deadwood's historic streets are an attraction in themselves, with the old-fashioned shop awnings and spherical glowing streetlamps giving everything a Wild West allure. The city's certainly not shy about reminding visitors of its thrillingly turbulent outlaw past, with regular re-enactments of shootouts and confrontations. Speaking of which, you can visit the exact spot where legendary lawman and gunfighter Wild Bill Hickock was assassinated during a game of cards. You can also head over to his final resting place in Mount Moriah Cemetery. Overlooking Deadwood, the cemetery gives spectacular views of the historic city and the wooded surroundings, and it's where another icon of the Old West, Calamity Jane, also lies. For more of Deadwood's past, visit Adams Museum, which showcases gold nuggets, sketches of Wild Bill, and other relics of Deadwood from days gone by. Just outside the city proper you'll find Homestake Gold Mine, one of the hotspots of the Black Hills Gold Rush which brought so many desperadoes to the area. Lovers of the great outdoors will also want to go hiking or mountain biking through the forests around Deadwood, while the snowmobile trails are another attraction during the thick snowfalls of winter.

Hotels in Deadwood

The city may be rooted firmly and proudly in the past, but the hotels in Deadwood are bang up to date. The sleek comforts of the big chain names offer the sort of upholstered and lily-white respite that the weary gunslingers of yesteryear could only have dreamed of. Many of the larger hotels also boast enviable extras such as indoor swimming pools and bracing spa facilities that'll ease the limbs after a day's trekking around the Black Hills. WiFi access in guestrooms will also mean you never have to have out of touch with friends and family around the world.

Where to stay

Unsurprisingly, most visitors here want to stay as close as possible to the historic central quarter, where you half expect to come face to face with Wild Bill or Al Swearengen at any moment. This is also where you'll find the lion's share of hotels in Deadwood, so if you pick carefully you might get to enjoy views of the main street from your window. If the outdoors are the attraction for you, though, you'll be glad to know some lodge-like hotels are also available in the midst of the Black Hills thickets.
