We stopped after driving 7+ hours. I know the Calumet is an historic building and one of the oldest hotels in MN. The lobby/1st floor and grand staircase and well maintained. Our room was clean, but I think the poor building is in desperate need of love, attention & funding. The shower area was the worst part of the room,... More

Staff said they were renovating, but that meant painting over wallpaper. continental breakfast was yesterday's muffins and old apples and oranges. All we can say about the place is that it was quiet...probably because smarter people than us did not stay there! Stay either in Marshall, MN or drive 45 min more to Sioux Falls SD.

We stayed here overnight on a trip to visit historical sites in the area. The outside and downstairs area of the inn are very well cared for and the staircase leading upstairs is amazing. Our room felt tired and needed some TLC. Our dinner in the bar was great and we had a very fun waiter who provided excellent recommendations... More

We enjoy getting the antique rooms and have usually been put in on the second floor. Our matress was a little too hard there last night, but our stay other wise was wonderful, good food, very helpful staff, and we didn't even mind the ghost that said "Hello" in our room at 2 am! (hey it was friendly too!) In... More

They have made efforts to update this old hotel. Lobby and grand staircase well kept up. Rooms need updating, musty smelling, uncomfortable beds. We could not get our door to lock from the inside. Room was furnished with fridge and microwave as well as iron and ironing board. Bathroom had plenty of towels and soaps and everything was clean. Great... More

We stayed here August 2015. The hotel is very retro but very clean and very interesting (and pet friendly!!!) Our room had a small stove, fridge and microwave. Each room had a title. Also, the restaurant is amazing!! I highly recommend this hotel :)

We've been to pipestone quite a few times in the last couple years but never had the opportunity to take a tour of the Calumet hotel, the staff was very friendly and willing to accommodate us in any way possible. We would be excited to spend a weekend here. Also the food is absolutely fantastic!! Alex Wanda, MN

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
