We stayed here on 9/1/15 and enjoyed it very much. It's was a welcome break from the mediocre hotels we stayed at on our trip to Yellowstone. It's in a beautiful canyon and peaceful. The room was very nice and perfect for a romantic night. Pretty lobby with a nice fireplace and a bar! In a nice location as we... More

The Spearfish Canyon Lodge is just off highway 14, but don't let that fool you, it's rustic. Built from timbers, it feels like an old west lodge. The rooms are clean and serviceable. The lobby has quite the atmosphere. The amenities include a coin operated laundry, and a couple of hot tubs. I recommend taking an evening dip after loading... More

We visited the lodge on a Friday evening. I had tried for months to get a room here on this particular night, our last in South Dakota, but we were continually turned away because of a wedding that had taken most of the rooms. I must have placed five phone calls to check on availability, even leaving my name on... More

After many months of planning and researching I booked this hotel on hotels.com 6 weeks in advance of my family's travelling from New Hampshire to South Dakota. We chose this hotel because it was a recommended hotel and the half-way point of a marathon that was running in the area. Throughout the weeks after booking I could see rooms opening... More

Wonderful location. Awesome view and lovely mountain brook outside our room. Very friendly staff, great "lodge" style lobby with fireplace, couches, board games, a bar. Beds were a little mushy for our taste, and they closed the hot-tub deck at 10:00 even though they said it would be open til midnight.

A beautiful, relaxing setting with a gorgeous lobby. The lobby has a high wooden ceiling with a lovely fireplace and western décor. The meals are served across from the main hotel. The dinner was very good but with extremely slow service. They ran out of chicken and pie. The buffet breakfast was scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, fruit. The... More

Up here from Southeast Texas coast for Black Hills Rally 75th Anniversary. After the fun and crazy days spent in Sturgis, this lodge was so beautiful and peaceful to come "home" to. Sitting at the creek rushing through the backyard before turning in was so relaxing... And don't miss the Latchstring across the street. Enjoy delicious food, wonderful coffee and... More

Spent the last 2 nights of our Black Hills vacation here. What can be said that hasn't already been said? Amazing location! Rooms great! Staff friendly! Food tasty! Food/drinks a bit expensive but you are in the middle of no-where in a beautiful setting that you won't want to leave so it makes sense. Definitely do the local hikes. We... More
