The main thing this Lodge has going for it is the location, which is lovely: beautiful views and close to several waterfalls. The Bridal Veil Falls Suite is a nice size, but the location of the room is not great. The private patio is directly above the public patio where smokers congregate. Service was not great. We had a confirmation... More

Just spent a week at the lodge with wife. Place is very nice and extremely clean. The staff is very nice and goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The Latchstring Restaurant across the street, is part of the Lodge. However , the food is average at best . Plenty of choices in nearby Deadwood and Spearfish,... More

It didn't start well. When we arrived, there seemed to be a plague of flying insects in the car park. (Apparently they are a problem for a few days each year. We chose the wrong days!). After checking in we went to our room. It had not been serviced from the previous night so we had to repair to the... More

Beautiful building, Beautiful Views, excellent service at the bar, comfortable bed, spacious rooms (well.... spacious enough..)...cheap construction. Rain on the roof sounded like a drumline in the room with you, and it was almost like sharing your bed with the neighbor! The great service and location made up for it, would definitely recommend

We visited this lodge with a Corvette club group of about 30. The staff was alot of fun and very accomodating. They even had a bucket, rags and a bottle of carwash soap ready for us with a hose outside! The grounds are absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. We will definitely be back!

We stayed at Spearfish Canyon for 2 nights and absolutely loved it! Coming off of 2 nights of camping in Custer State Park, we were ready for a little luxury. The lodge provided just that. We enjoyed a gorgeous drive through Spearfish Canyon and arrived to very helpful staff and a comfy, clean room. Both mornings included a delicious breakfast... More

Our experience with Spearfish Canyon Resort started our with the beauty of the canyon. Couldn't have imagined a place like this. We celebrated our 35th anniversary there this month. But.....they had a wedding party there the same night. What a trainwreck! Drunks cussing, slamming and beating on doors. We got no sleep that night. My wife was very, very upset.... More

Love this Lodge! The rooms are spacious. The location is terrific for an evening hike to Roughlock Falls, about a mile down the road and an early morning hike to the Canyon Rim. Make sure to enjoy breakfast at the Latchstring Inn. Then take a short walk to Spearfish Falls. Enjoy a book outside on the patio in the summer... More

The Lodge and surrounding are very nice. The staff very friendly but have way to many duties to attend to guests appropriately. That goes for the restaurant as well. Wait staff were great. The cook was slower than slow. A few hints to round this out: 1) don't make guests wait until 3 to check in when rooms are ready.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Spearfish Canyon Lodge - which is about central in the canyon. It is close to two waterfalls. The rooms are nice with comfortable beds. The lobby area is nice to sit in - and the bar in the lobby stays open until 2 a.m. In the morning they give you a coupon for a hot... More
