Town Hall Inn in Lead, SD


Welcome to the Town Hall Inn - your best hotel choice for Lead - Deadwood
This boutique hotel / B&B is located just five minutes - yet a world away - from Deadwood, SD.  The property is conveniently situated just 17-18 miles from both Sturgis and Spearfish, and is about five miles from Ski Mystic Deer Mountain and Terry Peak.  You will be right in the middle of all the action and adventure that the Black Hills have to offer.  Lead's Town Hall building was constructed in 1912 and served this function through 1938.  This ornate building originally housed many town functions, including the mayor's and treasurer's offices, the court room, jail, and judge's chambers - the gallows were located directly behind the building.  The Homestake Mining Company housed their general offices here for nearly 50 years, and the building now is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Relax; enjoy a comfortable stay and a light continental breakfast.


Established in 2013.

Brothers Mark and Paul McGrane took over operation of the Town Hall Inn in 2013.

Big, high-ceiling rooms with comfortable clean amenities. This historic building is a great place to stay when traveling the black hills.

Lovely building, squeaky clean, nice folks. I enjoyed our stay. Lead the town has seen better days, but it has a lot of charm, and I'm sure it will rebound. Worth the visit.

A charming, historic building that has been nicely restored and refurbished as a small hotel. Location in downtown Lead is quiet and a great base for seeing the Northern Hills. This is a Mom and Pop operation and they couldn't be better hosts with local information or a screwdriver for a quick ski repair.

We spent three nights at this great historic Inn.  Paul, Mark and Eileen made us feel at home the whole time, going above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make our stay a wonderful one.
If your going to be spending some time in the Black Hills of SD, don't go to Deadwood, SD (3 miles away), stay at the Town Hall Inn in Lead, SD.
My wife and I have covered over 2000 miles on our Harley on this trip, we've stayed in a lot of hotels and this was the best so far and will be hard to beat.

We spent 3 nights in this lovely, clean, historic Inn. It was a great space to call home base while we explored South Dakota.

We stayed in the Auditor's Office/room, which has high ceilings and a full kitchen, although we only used the sink and the fridge. It was convenient having an extra sink in the room. The room is off the main lobby but was very quiet! I wake up early and rarely heard any muffled voices. My husband slept till 9 and didn't wake up even though he's a light sleeper. But even more convincing that the room was sound proof is that the city was doing road construction right outside the Inn. Barely heard the heavy equipment they were using. Again, my husband slept right through it as well as a heavy thunderstorm one morning.

Internet is super fast. The best we had on our 2 week road trip.

The owner(s) were the best. We talked with Mark all 3 days we were there. Then because of my own forgetfulness, I got to talk to him the next day, too. I realized I forgot a bag in one of the dresser drawers. He immediately sent it to me and I got it the same time I arrived home in California.

We'd definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in western South Dakota.

This may be the coolest experience I've ever had at a hotel. This place is an amazing building and the staff there were some of the most hospitable people I've ever come across professionally. Highly recommended.
