Full service hotel approximately 65,000+/-sf built in 1989 on 2.17+/- ac with 75 double rooms and 15 suites on five floors including large commercial kitchen, lounge and meeting spaces on the main floor. Common areas throughout first floor with several amenity options. Completed rooms finished to new construction standards.

In 2014 updates and remodeling began in the fourth and fifth floor of which 25 hotel rooms have been converted into 15 luxury suites at 90% complete on the fifth floor and the renovations on the fourth floor are in the beginning state of construction with most of this to the bare studs. Property was originally built to accommodate a wide variety of meetings, regional conventions and special events while providing a convenient, central location for tourists and visitors to enjoy the many sights and natural beauty in the Black Hills.

Located halfway between Terry Peak and Deadwood, the property is only 32 minutes from Sturgis, which holds annually the largest motorcycle rally since 1938. With frontage on Alt US Highway 14 and US Highway 85, the property can easily reach the historic downtown of Deadwood 9 minutes away, as well as reach Mt Rushmore and Rapid City airport within an hour. The Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center is less than a mile away—originally an open cut goldmine with tunnels under city, now neutrino lab.

New owners, marketing, management, and focus are needed now to meet the increased, unmet, new demand for reasonably priced, quality hotel rooms for tourism as well as for those created by the Sanford Underground Research Facility expansion in the next 24-36 months. A recent housing study commissioned by the Deadwood/Lead Economic Development Corporation estimates shortages for all housing categories and is available for review by interested parties.

Auctioneer’s Note: Buyer will receive a credit at closing of $356,000 which represents the full payment of an indemnity insurance claim filed for hail damage on the building. (See Disclosures on back page for details.)


The original structure dates to 1901 and was built as a railroad maintenance and storage facility. This former railroad “roundhouse” boasts high end fittings, furniture, equipment, and fixtures. A full liquor license has recently been secured and is included in the auction.

A main floor restaurant is fully equipped as is the kitchen. The Mezzanine level has a second serving area, atrium, and food staging room connected to the kitchen. On the third and top level, is a self-contained 7000 square foot event center.

With a past reputation for fine dining in Victorian luxury this property is turnkey. Built in 1901. Approx 0.81ac lot. The property is located 32 minutes west of Sturgis and an hour north of Rapid City.

The property has frontage on Alt US Highway 14 and is also an hour from Mt Rushmore and the airport. It is also known for the historic downtown of Deadwood which is 9 minutes away.
