“spearfish canyon lodge”
Reviewed November 17, 2005

This was a gorgeous place to stay. Perfect place to get away from city life. There were a few minor things I noticed staying at the lodge. There is a restuarant across the street that is called the Latchstring. We decided to have lunch over there. We had to wait almost and hour and a half to get our food. They appeared to be uderstaffed significantly. I really felt bad for the waitress. The other minor thing I noticed was a group of staff at the lodge who all appeared to be employees and managers were smoking in the lodge in front guest. The lodge is a gorgeous place to visit and I thought that the mood was changed when I saw all these what appeared to be representative of the lodge smoking.

Spent two very enjoyable days here in September, and wished we could have stayed longer. The Lodge is in a beautiful setting. Rooms were good, and the staff very friendly. The Latchstring restaurant had a very good dinner menu, and also opens for breakfast. The Lodge is a fair distance from Spearfish so allow 20 minutes plus if you are driving from I90. There are lots of lovely walks to take. We also found the guest laundry to be very useful.

We stayed at the lodge one night returning
from a trip to Yellowstone. We were lucky to
find rooms as it was the weekend of a huge
antique car show in Deadwood. Our pet-friendly
room was very nice and we enjoyed the grounds
the next morning before departing.
We ate at the Latchstring and it was excellent.
Friendly staff and delicious dinner and breakfast.
Definitely a nice respite from "cookie cutter"
chain places.

Nestled in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Spearfish Canyon Resort emulates hospitality.
Although it is styled in a rugged western motif, complete with a Calamity Jane section, the rooms themselves are pure luxury.
Stroll the famed Spearfish Canyon with a backdrop of whispering pines to keep you company, and in the evening take the chill out of your bones with your own personal fireplace, complete with logs for your fire.
Friendly staff is always on hand to help with your needs, but understand your desire for peace and quiet, too.
Spearfish Canyon Resort is the place the world weary can take refuge again and again. You will never tire of the tranquility, beauty, or the wonderful people who work hard to make your stay pleasant.

I stayed at the Spearfish Canyon Lodge for two nights in May 2005. I absolutely loved the Lodge & the area. I originally only planned on staying at the hotel for one night on my cross-country road trip, but loved the area so much I ended up staying a second night. The hotel is beautiful and the location is remote, but well worth the trek. There are some great hikes around the hotel and the Latchstring was a pleasant surprise. It's not a far drive to Deadwood where you can gamble & shop. I had a really enjoyable dinner at the Deadwood Social Club and would recommend it.

What a sweet place! It's a good drive up the canyon to reach the resort but it's worth the effort. The lobby is spectacular: a soaring room with a large, blazing fire--the perfect place to curl up with a book in the evening. We, and our dog, were graciously welcomed and booked into the Custer Suite, a good-sized room with a comfortable sitting area and cheery fireplace. Enjoyed a fine supper across the road at the Latchstring Inn. Super-friendly wait staff, tasty entrees. I don't think you could do better in the area.

We have been going to the Black Hills for several years and Spearfish Canyon is one of our favorite palces. We've stayed at the resort a few times and I must say, it keeps getting better each time. A few years ago, the food was not very good and just ordinary at best, but the last couple years we've noticed that they must have hired a good chef. It's very creative and delicious. Our recent visit, we tried the pork osso buco and a Thai salmon, both were world class. The rooms are nice and comfortable and the lobby is so relaxing at night with the big fire going. We can't wait to go back.
