Spearfish Canyon Lodge is the place may be one of the best kept secrets. It is just gorgeous. Between all of the amazing views, UTV/snowmobile trails and trout streams how could we not have an amazing time. The Lodge is so comfortable & the staff friendly.
Some reviews said if the location is beautiful that’s about all it has going for it. The lobby is pretty. We arrived at check in as they stated it to be and our room was NOT ready.The rooms are just ok, Bedding is poor and pillows terrible. I was not impressed.
We went over for breakfast no one greeted us waited to be seated they walked all around us. We choose the buffet because of the lack of service, when we returned to our table someone else had been given our table.The buffet was over priced asked if more food was coming out was told they were working on it, after 20 minutes we choose to leave at that point. We couldn’t get any one to cash out our check. Over all felt invisible.
Hiked there three years ago the pool was only a couple feet deep and a huge bolder was in it then. I have not gone back since then. But 3 years ago there was no way it could have been used for sliding or swimming like before.
The canyon is always a beautiful place to visit.. we had lunch at the restaurant across the street from lodge. We didn’t care for it . I had the baked mac and cheese and my grandmother had a BLT .. with salad. Fries came out instead . The waitress did bring out a salad . The mac and cheese had no flavor at all . I didn’t eat it . We will come back but will not order the same. We went to the lodge and there was only one artist there for the art show and that was at noon .. so not sure we will be back for that .
Room was fantastic, and the whole staff was very very friendly and helpful!! Not to mention sitting in the wonderful hot tub and enjoying the gorgeous scenery!! Love this place so much, makes us want to pack up everything and move up here. Not one single complaint from us.
Have a wedding booked for this weekend and they still can’t hold to an agreement made almost a year ago. Almost everyday they are coming up with something else and charging more for things that were supposed to be just fine and not a problem at all. Since this wedding was planned they have gone through a few different managers. Please beware before booking an event.
We can’t wait to come back.
