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

This is a perfect place to stay if you are traveling through northwest South Dakota. Tree-filled, serene Spearfish Canyon is the opposite of most of what the area offers: the feeling of solitude and peace. We were on the road for two weeks, this was the nicest hotel we stayed in -- it was also the cheapest. The hotel is... More

Nestled in the beautiful Spearfish Canyon, the overall effect of spending the night there was wonderful. The rooms, furnished in log furniture, were clean and updated. We thought the Latch Key Restaurant was good as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend it to travelers!

We stayed 2 nights at the beautiful canyon lodge and the lodge itself is great. The latch key restaurant is not so great.We started dinner with a garden salad that was days away from a garden,very wilted and old. Next up was a semi cold chicken breast covered with a Luke warm sauce. Not sure of the makeup of the... More

We went in the summer and immediately started planning to come back. The rooms were lovely and the lodge comfortable and homey. You have to hike the trails around the lodge. The Spearfish and Roughlock falls are under a mile along wonderful well-maintained trails. My only suggestions would be to improve the internet (it was fairly unusable and with no... More

Hotel and staff were amazing and what better scenery. If the hotel was closer to the main attractions of black hills they could easily charge twice what we paid. We spent three nights in keystone just before the spearfish lodge and stayed in a tiny rundown room with no view and paid the same rate as spearfish lodge for 5... More

Great room with view and fireplace--excellent restaurant-friendly service-nice architecture-classic construction and well maintained-There is a beautiful canyon accessible from the hotel and a river with waterfalls flows adjacent to the hotel. The views and location in Spearfish Canyon is spectacular.

We have stayed here twice and it doesn't let us down. The location is perfect, the amenities are lovely, the restaurant across the highway is great and the "lobby" is so relaxing. It is located on one of the most beautiful drives in the Black Hills area of South Dakota. Beautiful hiking trails are nearby as well as snowmobiling. I... More

Overall a great lodge. Clean rooms, amazing lobby, and good location. They have a little restaurant attached to the lodge that is reasonably priced and very good. Hot tubs are in a nice location on the porch on the second floor. Staff is very nice and really seems to care about customers.
