We stayed at Calamity Peak Lodge on our first visit to South Dakota in September 2016. This family run motel is located near the west entrance to Custer State Park. Owners, Joe and Lori gave tips on sightseeing and restaurants. The rooms at the lodge are as described. We stayed in units 2 and 3 (with full kitchen), each unit... More

This place is a short drive out of downtown but the nice quiet room was appreciated. Central to many of the attractions in the Custer area. No continental breakfast available. We stayed in # 9, room was nice but bathroom area could use an update. Overall good value for the price, I would stay here again.

Another yr another great visit. Again in unit 7. Since last yr all outlets have been upgraded to 3 prong and shower was retiled. Each unit is different some with kitchens and some with just microwave. So look at website before booking. Back to unit 7, it does have about 30 steps so not for someone that has trouble stairs....

We have wanted to stay at Calamity Peak Lodge after driving by for years. We were not disappointed. We stayed with family and had 3 rooms. Each was clean and well appointed. The rooms are small, but really perfect for this kind of stay. You really feel like you are away from it all. There is a great gathering place... More

Our 2nd visit there! It is beautiful, peaceful, quiet, clean and so much fun. There are so many attractions close by, Crazy Horse, Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, Deadwood, Rapid City and many more. It's a great getaway and the owners, Joe and Lori are the nicest people you ever met! We've known them for years! Go stay there and... More

Our family (Mom, Dad, and a 5-year-old) rented Cabin #9 for two nights. Very clean; cozy with vaulted, raftered ceilings and wood paneling; and convenient for trips to Crazy Horse, Wind Cave, Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore. Cabin had everything we needed: a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee pot, king-size bed, bathtub, windows that open. We loved the charming location alongside a... More

Our family rented cabin #10 for three nights just before Bike Week. We were extremely impressed, and almost overwhelmed, by the beauty surrounding the cabin, as well as the cleanliness and appearance of the cabin. This is a newer looking cabin with wood paneling everywhere, vaulted ceilings, and nice-sized windows perfect for viewing the grounds. There is no a/c, but... More

Thank you so much for such a great review. We loved talking to your mother-in-law. we got to tell her about some of the history of Calamity Peak Lodge. She was really curious about the stone. I'm sorry you had trouble with parking but cabin 10 has its own parking. You could have pulled stay down to the cabin. You... More

I am a neat freak and very picky when it comes to staying in a hotel/cabin/anywhere not my home. This place was clean and maintained well. We stayed in room 1 for 3 nights. It had a pull out bed for our son, fridge, coffee pot, coffee, microwave, and TV (never used since we unplugged for the week). There was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of bike week in Sturgis. Room was small but very well kept. This is a "Mom & Pop" older establishment. The owners seem to be doing a great job keeping things neat & clean. There was a small fridge, microwave, & coffee maker in our room along with a TV &... More

Thank you so much for a great review. We usually try to tell people about Sturgis week before they come. The whole Black hills gets taken over by the motorcycle. Sturgis Week in the Black Hills is a real big thing for this area. I'm still glad you enjoyed yourself. I would recommend coming out a different time of the... More

We stayed here 6 nights over the 4th of July holidays and it was great! Cabin was clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Location is close to everything we like to do. Even though it's close to the highway we never heard traffic noise. Will stay here again if we are ever in the area.
