The Inn was peaceful and quiet, the staff very friendly and accommodating. We called mid-afternoon to see if we could check in early; our room was ready! We stayed two nights in a king bed room...lots of space, dresser, and closet space. I think room layouts vary depending on location in the building. Some of the carpets and upholstery in... More

My wife and I stayed at the Inn last July while visiting family in Indianapolis. Because I had lived on Fort Harrison in the late 1950s and early 1960s, it was a trip back to a wonderful time in my childhood. Much has changed in the town of Lawrence, but the setting and the beauty of what was once Fort... More

My husband and I stayed in a suite for a special night recently. The front desk was very accommodating, allowing a late check-in followed by an early check-out. The room was nice - very spacious, clean, and updated. Two things could have improved the room from our point of view. The air conditioning could not be set lower than 68... More

A great place to stay in Indy if you want to sleep in a more quiet kind of setting. Historical Inn, beautifully redone inside. We went to a concert downtown and spent the night at Fort Harrison Inn. A very nice walk in the State Park the next morning. Check it out!

I stayed in the Fort Harrison State Hotel which is located in an old military building. This is a place which breathes history, which is not always easy to find in the US. On top of the environment I could also enjoy a great and clean room for a very reasonable price... so what do You want more?

We've had our company Christmas Party at the Fort Harrison State Park Inn for the past several years. The staff is very attentive and the food is fantastic. The banquet room is clean & nicely decorated and the location is easy to find. We highly recommend the Inn!

The Inn was the former Officers Quarters constructed in 1906 at Fort Benjimin Harrison in Lawrence, Indiana, located Northeast of downtown Indianapolis. It is absolutely a jewel in the necklace of the Indiana State Parks system. I've stayed there three times, all in the same room. It was large with an attached sun room and a door that opened to...

Booked a room last minute GPS DID NOT get us to where we needed to be, so had a little trouble finding it in the dark. Std. King room nicer & larger than expected. Very clean, quiet and great shower! Enjoyed breakfast at nearby Cafe Audrey. Wished we could've stayed longer and would definitely go back.

This hotel is a diamond in the rough. Our room was very large, the bed extremely comfortable and the bathroom, too was very large. The setting is idyllic and very quiet. The décor is simplistic, but the hotel is very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. If we return to Indy, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Dollar... More
