After reading reviews online and looking at the pictures of the rooms on their Facebook page I though the Calumet Inn would be a nice place to relax and celebrate my college graduation. As someone who enjoys and seeks out historic hotels it was right up my ally! When first arriving this hotel looks great. The staff is very friendly... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from the hot/cold reviews, but we loved staying here. I was afraid to book in advance because they have a nonrefundable deposit of $25 and I wanted to check it out first, but no worries. We got room 205, most recently remodeled and very nice with King bed, bathrobes, free wifi, refrigerator, microwave, and in-room... More

I don't understand all the wonderful reviews of the Calumet Inn. I stayed here over a year ago and was just reminded of my horrible experience when watching a re-run of Gordon Ramsey's Hotel Hell. Although the food is outstanding the rooms themselves are less than desirable. They are dated and dirty and require extreme remodeling. I am a history... More

This was our second stay at the Calumet Inn, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and conveniently located near the Pipestone National Monument. We loved the old fashioned decor of the room--furnishings, wallpaper, etc. We had wine and dinner in the restaurant and a tasty continental breakfast in the morning.

Anyone who loves historic hotels should have the Calumet Inn on their list of not to be missed destination hotels. The hotel has been on the National Historic Register since 1975. Once the grandest hotel in southwest Minnesota, its glory faded over time. In 1979 it was purchased and extensively restored. Today there are 36 rooms and two bars and... More

Im on the road a lot and appreciate when I can find a hotel that gives good business rates. For about $60 I got a nice clean room, bed was cccomfortablebathroom spotless. They were almost full so the nice lady at the desk gave me the last queen available. Nothing fancy but I peeked in their fancier rooms while the... More

We had a corner room with great view of the streets outside the hotel. Besides the antique furniture, the room was very comfortable and I believe the bathroom had the first old fashioned chain pull wall tank toilet that I've ever used. We hope to spend more time in Pipestone in the future and will definitely stay at this beautiful... More

Each room is different and many are furnished with antiques. You have a choice of room types, more modern or historical. The building itself is beautiful to look at, and the claw foot tub add to the ambiance. The only problem I encountered is there were not many people around so the breakfast closed 30 minutes ahead of what was... More

Thank you for your review! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. In regards to the breakfast being brought down at 9:30am instead of 10am, we are deeply sorry about this. Our front desk attendant sincerely thought that everyone had already enjoyed their breakfast much earlier. We hope to have the honor of hosting you again soon. More

I have traveled frequently and am bored to death of the exact same little room that is replicated in every single motel/hotel. That is not what I got at the Calumet! The room was very large and furnished with what looked like beautiful antique furniture. The bathroom was fun with its claw foot tub and elevated toilet tank. Every thing... More
