There are just LOADS of options for motels and lodging in the Deadwood area! If you are looking for old and historic then stay at the Historic Franklin Hotel or try for a ghostly encounter with Seth Bullock at the Bullock Hotel.
Looking for newer more modern accommodations? Then go for the Deadwood Mountain Grand which just opened up in spring of 2012. Right on the hill in Deadwood, it is close to all the other casinos, altho you may not want to leave the casino here at all!
Plenty of great parking in their covered garage too.
I love the fact that the hot tub and the swimming pool both have handicap lifts. To me, that says a lot about this establishment!
Make sure to check their website for up and coming events, as they have great featured artists coming in to perform all the time.
This is a place with a piece of history too. This property actually used to be a "slime plant", a plant where they took muddy sludge and extracted gold from it. They have gutted, remodeled, preserved and restored as much of the original building that they could. The finished product is a neat mix of the old and the new.
If you are looking to treat yourself, rent one of the suites. The balcony overlooks the town of Deadwood, has a bar, and a fireplace to cozy up in front of on the comfy lounge couches and chairs. The suite will run you around $150 in the off season and around $300 when events are going on.
One of the nice things about staying in Deadwood is, you are close to all Black Hills Attractions! Visiting
Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Hill City, Spearfish Canyon and Custer are all just a 45 minutes (or under) away on scenic, meanering Black Hills roads. :)

Another SURE BET for lodging accommodations is The Lodge at Deadwood. This is the creme de'le creme and at the top of the list for Deadwood South Dakota Lodging!
We have stayer here twice now, and loved the CLEAN rooms, friendly staff, and the service!
The food here is great, and the service we have found to be superb. Waitress's make fast rounds and keep you filled up, whether you are at the tables, or at the machines.
This is one of the newest establishments in Deadwood (next to the Mountain Grand) and it shines like a new penny.
I won at the tables too, so that sure doesn't hurt this recommendation at all. :)
You will probably enjoy the Lodge at Deadwood so much you won't want to leave, but if you do, take advantage of their complimentary shuttle.
We did the one time and had a blast partying downtown. We buzzed in and out of all the casinos and bars just for fun (we hardly ever do that).
Note that the Saloon No 10 Deadwood gets PACKED on the weekends, and the service sucks then. And if you are not there REALLY EARLY forget about getting in on the gaming tables. The only ones who DO get service are the players at the tables, booze flows so freely there that they get snookered and won't leave. Don't say I didn't warn ya.
Oh, and PS, We never had a ghost encounter at the Lodge, altho I did have a very weird and funny feeling one time staying at the Franklin Historic Hotel. It was years ago, and I woke up around 3:30 in the morning and just had a really creepy odd feeling. Can't quite describe it, just...creepy.
I'm not into that kind of stuff so I stay at the new ones now, when I go...but fyi if you are into the "supernatural", try the Franklin or the Bullock for your chances at a ghost encounter. The Franklin is run down tho and needs updating badly, just an FYI.
Some fun, random Deadwood pics
