I've wanted to stay here since the Ponderosa pine lodge went up years ago. The incarnation of the Spearfish Canyon Lodge which previously existed here was not so spectacular.
The lobby is beautiful - huge stone fireplace, lots of couches and chairs, rustic decor if you can get past the heads of dead animals on the walls. =)
The rooms are . . . ok. Comfortable beds, but for the price I expected to be "wow"ed and was not. Also I checked the website before leaving and found no mention of a hot tub. However, there are two hot tubs on the second floor balcony with a magnificent view of the stars. Had I known beforehand I would have packed a suit rather than having to buy a WalMart cheapie special that I left behind.
Staff is very nice and helpful. There is a bar that serves limited bar food. The Latchstring Inn across the highway (you can walk there) is also a ponderosa pine structure. My mom and I had breakfast there, the French toast is awesome.
The location is unbeatable if you're into outdoors-type stuff. Roughlock Falls is a mile away, Spearfish Falls is even closer, and you're right in the middle of Spearfish Canyon aka heaven.
