Midwest Living Review
If you've ever dreamed of swaggering/sashaying down the hall of an Old West hotel like Matt Dillon or Miss Kitty, the Martin and Mason is your kind of place. The grand old brick building holds down a corner in downtown Deadwood. And despite the standard-issue Deadwood casino on the main floor, the hotel upstairs maintains all the trappings of a fine Wild West lodging. The look throughout reflects the attention of a quality restoration keyed on the hotel's 1893 heyday. Carpets and wallpaper are seemingly drawn straight from the set of a Western, and Victorian antiques and period-appropriate furniture fill the rooms. Ceilings are high, curtains long and lacey, and you'll notice details like push-button light switches. Rooms feature modern amenities, even if not in totally modern ways. You'll have a flat-screen TV in the room, but it may be in the living room rather than the bedroom. You'll have a tile walk-in shower with quality fixtures, but the sink may be in the bedroom rather than the tiny bath. The owners pay attention to the details that matter, outfitting the beds with high-quality linens and leaving fresh muffins and coffee on a table in the hall each morning.
