The Historic Calumet Inn is an older hotel, a beautiful building with period furniture and fixtures. It propbably would not be the choice of someone who wants the newest and best, but the bed was very comfortable. The staff wasn't the most outgoing, but they were friendly and helpful once asked. All in all, a good value for what we...

The Historic Calumet Inn is a chance for you to break out of the same old chain hotels when you are in southwestern Minnesota. Good internet, clean rooms and extremely friendly staff. Our room had a small frig and a microwave, no coffee maker but there is a continental breakfast available early in the morning until mid-morning. Parking is convenient...

This building left me in awe. I spent two nights here and was able to explore as I wished. From the basement to the upstairs, this place was amazing. I love history and this town is full of it! The building alone is enough to keep you busy for several days. I was happy to have the lounge and restaurant...

Don't plan on going there if you have a kid under the age of 21. Minnesota Law says anyone under the age of 21 when accompanied with a parent can enter a bar, however the calumet makes is own rules and does not allow it. We were there with a 20 year old who was not even trying to drink...

Seriously ....! I went to this hotel a week ago . And let me tell you that, the history of this hotel alone is worth the stay . Guy at the front desk which btw was actually the owner (Chad I think) was very helpful, polite and jovial. Once in there I start looking at the cool stuff around ,...

This is a really funky old hotel that we loved! The stone wall and stairs are spectacular. The room was very funky with a slanted floor, hot and cold water that barely mixed a 60's kitchen unit (no pots, pans or dishes supplied) We immediately felt like family and throughly enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for a renovated...

I enjoyed a stay at the Calumet Inn on a mother/daughter trip to visit Pipestone. We stayed in one of the historic rooms on the second floor with two queen beds. It was bigger than many rooms I have stayed in at chain hotels and was very clean. I was told that the rooms on the upper floors are later...

Liked the idea of a historic old hotel, rather than a chain. Unfortunately, this one is a little too historic and old. We had one of the 'historic' rooms - a street-facing room on the 2nd floor (other rooms are more modern, supposedly). The room WAS 'historic' - high ceilings, antique furniture (not in very good condition) and old-fashioned bathroom...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize for the noise of the trains, our rooms towards the opposite side of the building do not have the problem that a few of the limited rooms on the front do. We are currently updating our rooms to create a better experience for our guests. We have recently...

If you're looking for a "Holiday Inn Express" type experience keep on trucking. If you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary you will find the Calumet Inn a wonderfully unique stop over. We stayed in the "Belleweather Plantation" room on the third floor - each floor of the hotel having its own theme. As other reviews...

Went to Pipestone. MN to see the Pipestone National Monument, which everyone should see (beautiful and serene; an educational and historic experience). We saw the Calumet Inn online and thought an old, updated hotel would be perfect for our visit. We have stayed in several restored, historic hotels in the past and were impressed with the care and vision others...
