We did a lot of research before choosing the historic Bullock Hotel. We chose to stay there three nights. Our room was much bigger than I thought it would be given it is an old hotel. It had free wi-fi, a tv, water, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer and soap. There was not an iron in the room. The bed and bedding were adequate. There were plenty of towels. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are above a casino. Even though we got a non-smoking room, you could still smell cigarette smoke faintly. You couldn't open the one window in the room, which would have helped bring in fresh air. I am guessing that they didn't pull out the carpet when they stopped allowing smoking. We were warned that there had been some friendly ghost activity in our room. Unfortunately, although we love historic buildings, my husband doesn't like the thought of ghosts. He won't even watch the ghost hunter tv shows. Every time we tried to go to sleep, he thought he saw something or heard something. We couldn't sleep fitfully. THe ceiling is painted a dark red and the carpet is a reddish brown, so the room is pretty dark and a little spooky. We also had a room off the main hallway in a little hallway on its own, so it seems a little creepy. My husband swears he heard someone call his name the first night.
Unique Quality: The location is great. It is right on historic main street. It is a nice old building.
A Downtown Hotel with Casino
The Bullock Hotel was built in 1895 by Seth Bullock, Deadwood's sheriff, and his business partner Sol Star. It was the first hotel built in Deadwood. Scraps of wallpaper, faded stencil designs inside the hotel, and even pieces of the old paint were used to create an authentic restoration of the hotel. My friend and next-door neighbor has stayed here twice. Once in the original, restored hotel, and another time in the newer Branch Annex located across the street and behind the original hotel. If you are interested in a historic location, stay in the original main hotel. Be aware, however, that many of these older, restored rooms are quite small in size. My neighbor enjoyed both sections of the Bullock, although she felt that the Branch offered a little more privacy and more luxurious rooms. Remember, however, that if you choose the Annex you do have to walk across a busy street to enter the main hotel/casino.
Unique Quality: The Bullock has a good location if you wish to be in the center of the action and have an easy walk to almost everything in the down town area.
A Historical Note: Seth Bullock died in room 211 of the Bullock Hotel on September,1919. He is buried on the high, north side of Mount Moriah Cemetary in Deadwood. It has been reported by many visitors to the hotel, that Bullock’s ghost still wanders the hallways.
