Lovely exterior but beware - this is like Fawlty Towers for real. We almost broke down laughing - it was comical. No one at reception. Waited... after 10 minutes searched for them. They were standing outside smoking! I asked if they worked there and they...More
My husband and I visited Pipestone with my parents to do some genealogy research. Thinking the Calumet would be a historic and charming hotel, we booked a stay. What a mistake. First of all, there was nobody at the desk to check us in. We...More
We spent one night in this hotel, while visiting the town of Pipestone, and the Pipestone National Monument. Our first impression was of a dirty sign, with a filthy rag and a bucket of dusty chalk festooning a sign displaying the daily special in the...More
Pipestone was our first stop on our road trip out west and I was just surprised at the lack of care. I knew it was a cheap hotel, but finding piles of dirt on the main staircase told me everything I needed to know. To...More
We stayed last weekend for a family reunion/class reunion. This property has so much potential if the staff was trained adequately. No one had a uniform let alone a name tag. The two front desk people, I am assuming they were front desk people were...More

Sorry I can't answer specifically about the family suite. We stayed in room 205, but were able to peek into a few other rooms on the second floor. If you're looking for a shiny, "sparkly" room that looks like every other room you find in new hotels, this isn't the place for you. If you like historic, clean, comfortable, "homey" as in kind of a grandma's house feel, this is exactly what you want.
I couldn't access their website this morning to see what they say about the family suite. I would suggest you give them a call. They should be able to answer your question. Everyone who worked in the hotel seemed very friendly. I would ask if the suite is one of the rooms that has been remodeled recently and wouldn't hesitate to ask politely if they could possibly send a couple of photos of the room your interested in. (We did post pictures of room 205 with our review.) They may or may not provide photos, but it never hurts to ask.

The Hotel Hell episode was quite interesting. It seems like it has gone down hill since it was filmed. I don't know about all of the rooms, but the two we saw had wall paper including large roses wallpaper in the rose room. I honestly can't remember the furniture in our room. I thought it was not typical motel furniture but nothing unusual. We did not have a jacuzzi or claw foot tub. The rooms are large and seemed comfortable enough to us.

In answering this question, you have shown that your business model supports the idea that honesty is not needed when to the public. I do not believe that misrepresenting yourself in order to gain free publicity is ethical. I will be in the area soon, but I will not be staying at the Hotel Calumet as I don't have confidence in your integrity after reading through the answers you have provided here.
