    « Great Hotel! »

    Nice comfortable hotel with usual breakfast fare included. The special thing about this hotel is the bar at the hotel. Only serves beer but its a comfortable cozy bar to hang with friends. The bar has some entertainment as well. Great location to boot.

    « Older but okay »

    The staff is very friendly and the bed was very comfortable. However, I had no hot water for my sink, saw a stray bottle cap under my bed, had a randomly buzzing electrical outlet in my room (the one with the trip switch next to sink). I also heard a manager scold a staff person in front of me. Breakfast was okay - the waffle was unusually thick compared to the light/airy ones elsewhere. Hard boiled eggs are your protein option. Good coffee.

    « Older property OK for one night »

    I stay at Best Westerns almost exclusively and this one is on the older side. The staff and location are great and the inside of the room was nice and clean. I actually though the price was very reasonable for BW especially compared to others I've stayed at. I'd stay here again if I'm ever passing through this area in the future.

    « convenient for touring Spearfish Canyon »

    This motel is a little more spendy than most Best Westerns, but it is typical of the pricing in the tourist destination of Spearfish,S.D. The room was clean with the conveniences of refrigerator and microwave. There is a family restaurant within walking distance of the motel, so weary travelers don't need to get behind the wheel again for an evening meal. The breakfast was typical of Best Westerns. There is easy access to the interstate from this location.

    « Perfect for our needs »

    Large room with door to inside and outside of hotel. Easy run out for dogs. Large room with fridge and microwave. Clean! Internet steady. Very close grassy area, though terrain steep. Close to all amenities in Spearfish. Recommend!

    « Okay for a one night stay »

    Stayed on night and our room was clean and well maintained. A little higher priced than some other budget hotels but very convenient to Mt Rushmore , Crazy Horse and the Devil's Tower. Not a luxury hotel but it fit our needs.

    « Room #120 - choose another room or stay in Deadwood »

    Apparently when Deadwood got the casinos, they also got all the decent places to stay. This Best Western needs a complete remodel. We stayed 2 nights during the third week of September. The toilet is so low as to be difficult to use and there was a huge chip missing out of the toilet seat. I wrapped plastic around the seat for fear of getting splinters. There was a large hairball on the floor between the dresser and the refrigerator. Getting in and out of the oval jetted tub was difficult. There was mildew in the corners of the tub and hair in the tub. We were in an adjoining room and there was no sound proofing - think the restaurant scene from "When Harry Met Sally." You could hear footsteps from the unit above. Lamp shades were broken and had holes in them. On the plus side, the mattress, pillows and bed linens were good and the air conditioning worked well without being annoyingly loud. The breakfast area is small and gets overly busy. Breakfast - apples, bananas, waffles, boiled eggs, yogurt, 3 cereals (Cheerios, Chex, Raisin Bran), teas, coffees, milk, bagels, toast (including wheat), mini-muffins, 3 juices (orange, apple and cranberry). We chose to eat breakfast out the second morning.

    « Go elsewhere! »

    Prior reviews are completely misleading! I am done with Best Western. I have traveled over 2000 miles. This is the worst hotel of my entire trip. Not clean, dirty carpet, old beds, torn draperies....it smells of dirt.

    « Dated establishment, poor service, safe? »

    I would like to say some positives but ....difficult to find except that the desk clerk was apologetic for all the deficiencies. There were multiple things wrong with our room, window busted, noisy heat radiator, no manager on duty, overbooked rooms so none to transfer to, over-priced for what we got even with a discount. The deficiencies were all pointed out to the young lady at the front desk. Window was put back on the track after a call out to someone not on site. After returning from dinner the room was cold the heater started clanking, again no one on site to fix heat issue- so two waded up blankets, not even folded were delivered to our room the desk clerk. That tells me that they do not have enough qualified employees to even keep up with the laundry. All these issues should have been remedied before our stay there. There is a broken key card entry on the exterior back door, and a lounge on the premises; safety factor??? The breakfast was subpar with no hot eggs. We would have brought all this to the attention of the front desk staff at check out but the people checking out before us had already let the desk clerk know how dissatisfied they were and we needed to get on the road. All in all of our lengthy trip west and back the worst stay yet.

    « Another great stay »

    We stayed at the BW Black Hills Lodge in Spearfish for 2 nights. Room was great...loved the beds and pillows. I take my home business with me where ever I go so good Internet is a must. It did not disappoint. All of the staff that we had dealings with were very professional, friendly and helpful.

    « Huge Room »

    We had a two room unit that was huge. The beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly and professional, and the breakfast was good. We had a few minor issues when we first arrived in the room, however, one call to the desk and they were taken care of immediately. The property is a bit pricey, but the location is good.

    « Best Western Black Hills Lodge »

    The hotel room was very clean and well supplied with toiletry items as well as ample supply of coffee. The customer service was friendly. It's nice that the breakfast they provide is a bit more than just a continental breakfast of coffee and donuts/rolls. They provided waffles with strawberries, yogurts, rolls, bagels/muffins/toast, eggs, fruit, and plenty of beverage options. Great stay.

    « Friendly faces »

    It was our first trip to South Dakota, and was nice to walk up to registration desk and get a smile and a warm greeting. We were visiting relatives so weren't there except to sleep. We stayed two nights and enjoyed stay. The room was clean and the people were friendly and helpful. The pool is heated but is outdoors so must be closed during winter

    « Great Night »

    We came in at 10pm on a Monday night were greeted graciously by the front desk staff. They offered us a discount we are retired military. Nice quiet room soft Fluffy beds nice pillows. Great night sleep room looks updated.

    « Way too expensive for the condition it is in. »

    This hotel has great friendly staff, but the facility is old and very worn down. Rooms are shabby, carpet is a disaster, beds are old. A high point was free popcorn and cheap wine and beer in the bar. Breakfast was marginally OK. It's definitely not worth the premium price they expect.

    4
    « Clean, friendly place to stay »

    Check in was fast and easy, room was large and very clean. Most comfortable bed of our trip. Every staff member was extremely friendly. Was with in walking distance of downtown where there are several good restaurants and a number of wine bars. Will stay at this location in the future.

    « Trek to the West »

    This Best Western was just nice. It was refreshing to be in a tourist location & not pay thru the nose for a bed. While the facility was not as fancy as some of the other BW we stayed at on this trip, it was definitely the most reasonable. Staff was pleasant, the room was clean & adequate. It easily met our needs for the night. Location is good with easy-to-find restaurants and gas stations close.

    « The highest rated hotel in Spearfish??? »

    I don't usually rate hotels and restaurants, but this one is worth reviewing for the benefit of others.I stayed here twice in the last six days on my trip to the Black Hills and ND. Overall, this hotel is OK, but I wouldn't stay here again. This is a two story hotel. There is no elevator so be prepared to pull your luggage up the staircase. The downstairs rooms appear to have outside as well as inside access and seem to be favored by smokers who can escape for a smoke break. The check-in was fine and on the second night the register clerk tried to help me setup my wife's Android to the WiFi, which is a pretty strong signal compared to many hotels.. Breakfast was pretty much breads, hard boiled eggs, waffles and coffee. The gal tending to the breakfast area seemed oblivious to some obvious needs: the floor had maple syrup spilled on it and she and guests were walking through it, with sticking footwear audibly noticeable. I finally grabbed some paper towels which suffice for napkins and cleaned up the floor. On my first stay here six days ago I noticed how worn and dirty the carpeting was. It needs an upgrade badly, but gets a little better as you move away from the exits and entrances. But the appearance on check in really gives a poor first impression . Of course. keeping the breakfast floor cleaned might help. The room I had the first night was Ok; the carpet in this room was in need of steam cleaning or replacement. The room I had the second night was better. Hotel is conveniently located off I-90. Price was relatively cheap. Business center is a PC and printer located in the small breakfast room.

    « Good Hotel »

    The staff was friendly and the hotel room was clean. They allow multiple dogs which is extremely helpful when traveling with pets. The area also has beautiful surroundings. It was a busy day for the staff but the female who checked us in was friendly and inviting. I wish I recalled her name.

    2
    « Room and staff »

    Staff not friendly or helpful. Room not very clean and very strange to have two doors into and out of the room. Much to expensive for what was offered. Given two diffeent prices at beginning of check in. Told she could not check my BW points for an option of a free room. Of course could not use my points again because the amount needed had been increased again.

    « Out dated, not very clean, no elevator. »

    The title of this review about sums it up. This is a very old building and things are becoming out dated. It was hard to tell if some things were clean or not because they are just so old and stained. I decided not to shower because it looked dirty, but it may have just been very old. They have done some updating and the beds were clean and comfy. We especially appreciated having a room that all of us could sleep in (4 queen beds). But were shocked when we arrived to find out they don't have any elevators. My husband had broken a bone in his ankle during our vacation and was waiting to have surgery on it back home. It was labor day weekend so finding another hotel was out of the question and we had too many people with us to use one of the rooms on the bottom floor. This was a huge issue for us. My husband had to further injure his ankle by going up and down stairs. Because of the stair issue we couldn't come and go from the hotel, we had to just check in and stay put because he couldn't do the trips up and down the stairs multiple times. So it really ruined our time in Spearfish. We didn't get to do any of the sight seeing we wanted as we weren't going to just leave him behind. It would help a lot if the lack of an elevator was made clear during the reservation process. Especially when booking room types that only exist on the 2nd floor.

    « Great stay »

    Stayed two nights. Room was spacious, clean and very well kept. Access to car outside door is great. Breakfast was especially helpful when I noticed a sign giving gluten free and milk free options for breakfast. They showed a basket of 3 different breads, muffins, granola bars. Service was excellent. The only downside was our room wasn't cleaned til late afternoon, although it wasn't a problem for us. Great location to walk downtown and quick access to most locations.

    « We love this hotel!!! »

    Another good stay at the hotel but they need to talk to their cleaning lady, she must be slacking a bit. The room was not cleaned very well and the garbage was very full and smelly. We always stay here and we love it. all year round we come.

    « Clean, great staff and great breakfast »

    The check in staff was very nice and helpful. Our room was clean and everything worked. I was very impressed with the variety and quality of the breakfast offered. Check out was also very quick and easy.

    « Decent Stay »

    The hotel and staff, overall, were a fine experience. Just be aware that a bar is within the hotel and live music may be playing. If you are sensitive to noise, you might want to ask ahead of time the schedule for music.

    « Great Room - Superb Service »

    I stayed in room 119 at the Black Hills Lodge, a Best Western Hotel in Spearfish,South Dakota from August 11 through the 18th of 2016. My room was large, had a king size bed, refrigerator, microwave, superb two level desk and a comfortable easy chair with footstool. The Wi-Fi signal was strong and worked perfectly. The television was large and worked perfectly. When in Spearfish I stay at this hotel because of it's convenient location. It's a three block walk to downtown. The Millstone restaurant, next door, has an extensive menu with well prepared food. I had a great deal of interaction with the staff including Dan Hodgs, the general manager,housekeeping and front desk employees. Every employee did their work perfectly. There's a real esprit de corps at this hotel. Dan Hodgs and his staff are exemplary.

    « Nice staff, loud air conditioning, lumpy pillows. »

    We need to use pet friendly lodging when we take road trips. I've written off La Quintas after a couple of bad experiences. Thought I'd try BW. Not bad at all but I'm very tired of loud air conditioning. Four pillows on the bed (this is good). But the pillows were really lumpy. I don't like writing mediocre reviews but if these things bug you, take note. The staff were great- friendly and helpful.

    « Very Clean, quiet. Helpful Staff. »

    Very clean hotel. Staff at front desk were very quick and professional with check in. Nice hotel bar with good local craft beer selection. Very close to the highway, but very quiet. Wonderful breakfast selection. My stay was during Sturgis bike rally, they had covered bike parking and a bike wash area set up.

    « Nice Hotel. Great place to stay for Sturgis Rally. »

    My wife and I stayed here two nights during the pre-Sturgis week. The girl behind the desk was very helpful and answered all of our questions. Our king room was nice and clean. I really like that you could enter the room from the hallway inside or parking lot outside. We were able to park our bike right outside our door. We had a blast at the outdoor pool. We did run out of chairs for everyone. Days were hot so it was nice to cool off in the pool. Location was great for us as Spearfish Canyon Road was really easy to get to. Local restaurants within walking distance too. Very happy with our stay.

    Pleasant few days at this hotel , instantly greeted by a lovely lady at reception. Very good place to stay to visit local attractions close by. Our room was very clean, good breakfast. Also was good to have an on site bar if you do not want to walk out. All the staff were very friendly.

    « Lacking experienced Staff »

    The "Help Wanted" signs out front should have been an indicator The maid staff was lacking, and didn't even clean my room one of the days I was there, they tried to blame me saying the DND sign was on the door when it wasn't. I asked the maid staff for extra towels and coffee, gave her a tip and upon my return, nothing I asked for was in the room. 6 of the 8 nights I stayed there, upon returning in the evening my keys were shut off, and I had to go to the front desk for new keys. This place does not have a washer and dryer for guests to do their laundry.

    « Nice Location »

    We spent the first two nights of our South Dakota vacation here and we really enjoyed our stay. Although the room is a little dated, it was very clean. We really enjoyed the ground floor room because we had an exit directly outside to our car as well as one into the hotel which was very nice. We loved the location, it was right off the interstate which was very convenient. We attended the Black Hills Rodeo Roundup in Belle Fourche that was a short distance on the interstate from here and spent a day visiting Spearfish Canyon and Devil's Tower. This was very convenient to both of these places. The staff was friendly but the best part for us was the free breakfast. Most places have cereal and a few stale muffins. This place had Belgium Waffles that were magnificent as well as several other delicious items to choose from. We ate at very nice outdoor seating area which was really enjoyable in the early mornings. We would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area!

    « Time for Updating »

    We stayed 2 separate nights in 2 weeks. Pros: Great outdoor pool and lounging area that also had a covered area to get out of the sun or rain. Very friendly and attentive front desk staff. It is a good place to stay if you have a pet because the ground level rooms have 2 doors (inside entrance and a back door directly to your car). Fairly good location right off of Interstate 90, with a very average family restaurant next door and few block walk to Main st. where there are better places to eat. The bed was comfortable and rooms large. Cons: The rooms need major updating. Tired and worn furnishings, carpeting, and decor. There are not enough outlets. They should have lamp on the desk with an outlet. Poor housekeeping staff that needs to work on attention to detail. Our first night (room #102), there was NO SHOWER CURTAIN. Our second night stay, there was only 1/4 roll of toilet paper and no replacement rolls in the room. Not a good value for what you get especially in the summer when they jack up their prices. We have stayed her for the past several years and I see very minimal changes with room updates, hallway carpeting. This is why I'm dropping it from 4 stars from prior review a couple of years ago to 3 stars now.

    Rachael was very nice on the front desk. Room was a good size, beds lovely a comfy, although the lines looked a little 'tired'. Chairs were a little stained, and not a great deal of wall outlets. 'Fridge/micro AND.......1 cup serving KEURIG - brilliant! Good sized TV, excellent TV lineup. There is an indoor bar area - looks fairly limited, but hey, nice option - with a nice little outdoor seating area, a bonus. Very short walk up to Millstone Restaurant. Breakfast was fair. All in all, a very good stay. Would stay again.

    « PET FRIENDLY, Priced right, Convienent »

    We stayed here on the going and coming back a week later. Friendly staff upon arrival and departure. We do not eat the "breakfasts", usually get a coffee and a piece of fruit so we cannot comment on the "breakfast. Our rooms # 105A & 107A were both clean and had 2 doors one into the hotel hallway and one leading directly outside. For us that was great since we had our dog with us. It was a nice convenience. We were close enough to several restaurants and walked to them. There is a family restaurant in the next parking lot over form the hotel. There is a small "lounge" which served drinks, bar bites and pop corn each day from 4-9. We didn't part take though there were folks who did. There is a pool, decent grounds for pets walking around and down the street. We would gladly stay here again. The price was right, the rooms were clean the beds were comfortable for us. It was Pet friendly which is an important factor for us. Pet Fee was $15.00. Not bad considering some places want to charge 3x that. We found this location fine for our needs.

    « Really Addresses our Concerns! »

    We rented a pet room with its own outside door on ground level which was nice except it smelled badly of pet odors. They discounted rate and pet fee to make us happy and promised that they usually keep their pet rooms shampooed frequently!

    Great value, friendly, easy to walk to restaurants. They had a nice bar area off from the lobby and had a local man singing from 7-9 pm. Breakfast was fine. Room had a refrigerator in it. The room also had a separate sink area from the bathroom which was convenient.

    I would not stay at this hotel again! Very poor mattresses and musty pillows. Also expected the normal scrambled eggs and sausage like other Best Westerns - not the case here! If they would replace the current mattress's and pillows with better ones and improve their breakfast I would stay here if I ever came to this area again.

    « Not a very nice property. Old and needing help. »

    The two things that bother me the most are old, saggy mattresses and child sized toilets, and this property offered both. Old and needing renovations.

    « Average Stay »

    Not the best stay ever. Room was small, stairs were messy, and everything was just ok. Not the best ever but no real complaints. The real highlight of the stay was the "build you own waffle" bar. Most best westerns have the waffle iron, sure. But they have over a dozen toppings for your waffle. Candy pieces, chocolate chips, almonds, strawberries, whipped cream, white chocolate chunks.... made for a good morning.

    « Reasonable place to stay if visiting black hills, custer or Devils tower »

    We spent one night here during a visit to the various parks and attractions in the area. This motel is quite clean, and we were attended to by friendly staff even though it was late at night when we checked in. We found the beds were a bit too soft, providing little support. Otherwise, the amenities in the room were average. Breakfast is simple and basic. Waffles, cereal, bread, fruit and cold hard boiled eggs. No frills. The selection of coffee, tea and hot chocolate was above average though. We were pleasantly surprised by "grab and go" breakfast bags they prepared for patrons in a hurry to leave for their next destination. The first floor rooms have a convenient additional "back" door that leads directly to your car (should you choose to park there). This makes it very convenient for loading and unloading luggage, especially during inclement weather. The Millstone family restaurant next to this motel was average to below average. We suggest eating elsewhere unless you are short of time and just looking for a quick convenient bite to eat (although their fried chicken was good).

    « Repeat Stay »

    When we head this way, this is usually where we choose to stay. Friendly, clean rooms. We try to make reservations ahead of time, but our last trip was an emergency trip to get my sister back home for my moms heart surgery. We travelled from WI and got as far as Spearfish and decided we needed to stop for the night and they managed to come up with a room for us at the last minute.

    We stayed here for our first two nights in our vacation to the Black Hills and Badlands. It is centrally located for short trips to Belle Fourche, Deadwood, Lead and Devils Tower. The rooms were very well kept, with extremely comfy beds! The breakfast was good as well. The staff were very friendly and professional. I would most definitely recommend staying!

    I have five children and it is not easy finding accommodations while traveling. Best Western Black Hills lodge has great family suites with a nice outdoor swimming pool. The staff is very helpful, cheerful, and polite.

    « Great motel »

    Our room was clean, our bed was *very* comfortable, and the breakfast was good. The staff was also very friendly and helpful, during check-in, check-out, and breakfast. During check-in the clerk at the front desk told me how I could save 15% on my stay that night through the Best Western rewards program, which made the value even better. On our next road trip where we need to stop for the night near the Black Hills, we'll be back to this motel in Spearfish.

    « Hidden treasure in Spearfish SD »

    If you are looking for a clean, nice place to stay in the beautiful Black HIlls of SD, the Best Western in Spearfish, SD delivers. The staff is friendly and very helpful and the hotel ambience is warm and welcoming. Comfortable clean rooms with nice furnishings and décor await you. The rooms are very well insulated and provide for a great night's sleep. Every part of our stay was excellent.

    « Treat Us Like Family »

    The Best Western is our home away from home in Spearfish. We have stayed there many times over the years and the staff consistently goes out of their way to accommodate our needs. They have allowed us to use the breakfast room for family gatherings, including a birthday party for my 90 year old mother. On our most recent stay, we needed some pruning shears which they loaned us. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but it is the staff that makes this a special place to stay. They can direct you to points of interest that go beyond the usual tourist sites. Special thanks to Raychel, Karli, Janet, Curtis, and Kate who were very helpful to us during our stay for a funeral. This is not a luxury property, but it is a great place to stay with a clean pool and well-maintained property, with a fun bar with free popcorn.

    « Nice Surprise »

    Nice surprise in Spearfish! Our room was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The property is a little old, but very well maintained. The staff we encountered was very friendly. Would definitely stay here again if we are in this area.

    « Great Place To Stay in SD »

    This is a really nice BW in Spearfish SD. Great atmosphere outside and inside. The staff was very helpful. It's located right off the interstate and only 90 minutes or less from Mt Rushmore. They had a good breakfast, firm bed and clean room. The fitness equipment was top notch.

    « Comfortable and clean »

    This was an average place to stay. No wow factor. We did like that we could park our car right outside the door from our room which made unloading/ loading easy. Breakfast was typical/average. Close to freeway which was nice.

    « Comfortable, clean, and good wifi »

    I had to travel to Denver for a friend's wedding and stopped in Spearfish on my drive. The location is right off the interstate so it's handy. The staff was friendly and the hotel had a good breakfast and fast wifi. Nothing too fancy, but everything you need for a comfortable stay, the only downfall was the water pressure in the shower wasn't good.

    « Comfortable and pet friendly »

    The room was comfortable and clean. This motel has outside door entrance as well as the inner to a hallway on the ground floor. This is so handy when traveling with a dog. We had a good nights rest. Some motels have noisy heating systems but this did not. Good restaurant references.

    « Just what you'd expect from a Best Western »

    No elevator, so if you don't mind lugging your bags up a flight of stairs. Average breakfast. No plates for the waffles, and I guess it never occurred to anyone to run down to the nearest Walgreens and pick up a package of plates for the guests. When we mentioned our military service, our check-in person upgraded us to a 2 bedroom king suite.

    « Time For Some Updating »

    This property is in need of sprucing up, as others have noted. It seems old, tired and dated, so while it's not a terrible place to stay, it isn't altogether pleasant either. For the money, we've stayed in far nicer accommodation.

    « Reliable and solid hotel »

    The Spearfish BestWestern is a solidly good hotel. We have stayed there twice with our dogs. The staff has been accommodating and helpful and has given us GREAT restaurant recommendations. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the free wi-fi very good. All in all, a good bargain.

    « Gerat stay »

    Very nice place, great staff and located near many places in So Dakota. The rate was within our price range for our trip. If we ever have a chance to visit the area again, Spearfish, we will make it a point to stay at this Best Western

    « Tired Decor, But Clean, Comfortable Accommodations »

    The decor of this hotel needs to updated as it was a little tired and outdated but we had a clean room and bathroom and a comfortable bed and in the end we don't ask for more than that. The location put us in close proximity to the areas we wanted to visit.
