Spearfish Canyon Lodge
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Lead
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 27, 2014

We visited this area to hike and enjoy nature. The best part of staying at the lodge is that you can hike to fab places right outside the door. The location is so great, that we spent most of the time outside. The rooms were clean and did not smell musty. The service was so-so. We asked about an elevator to allow a disabled family member to visit our room and were told by a snarky maid to check with Willy Wonka. So, not ideal for disabled folks since they cannot get to the hot tubs or balcony. Other employees were very nice. The bedding was too hot -so ask for blankets instead. There was live music one night, board games, and places to picnic. The was WIFI BUT NO CELL PHONE coverage. So drop your cell phones and hit the trails!

Room Tip: We stayed in a named room - higher price, but we got a fireplace and a kitchenette.

We were hiking with a group and stayed at the lodge. While check in was a chore, we had a nice stay. The rooms were adequate and the service good. We stayed 2nights and enjoyed the environs with a fire in the great room. Nice, but not luxurious rooms. Great scenery

Spearfish Canyon was special complemented by 2 nights at Spearfish Lodge room was very pleasant and the setting made it all come together! Restaurant across street adequate, but found Bayleaf Cafe back in Spearfish city worth 12mile ride.

Room Tip: My handicapped room lacked any semblance of handicapped bath. We did get first floor.

We stopped to shoot some photos of Spearfish Falls and ended up making reservations at the lodge. It was an excellent value that included a comedy show and dinner at the Latchstring Restaurant across the street. Dinner was excellent and the show was fun! Our room was very comfortable, so glad we stayed. Roughlock Falls are just up the road and something you shouldn't miss. We were impressed!

Ok, arrived at check in and some guy had a dog barking out in the car, could hear inside, asked what that was about and no one responded, annoying, then I checked into my room and no less than 3 rooms with dogs in, now there are no designated dog rooms and yes, I itched and can only think it was from dogs on the furniture and bedspread and rug, ugh, oh yes, one dog heard during the night and once is too much, I even asked about dogs prior to reserving and they told me it is very infrequent and rooms are set aside so that shouldn't be a problem for someone who like their room minus the pleasures of dogs previously in it and the dogs butt on the furniture.

The staff is fine, room came with a breakfast from restaurant across the road and that was very good, parking is plentiful, room was clean except as mentioned above, beautiful location in the canyon

If you don't mind sharing your hotel with dogs this would be fine, for me it is something I want to avoid and the problems and uncleanliness that come with dogs: please leave your dogs home, they don't enjoy the trip or being in the room and not everyone likes your dog

Room Tip: My tip, bring milk bone dog biscuits and bond with the dogs
