This is a very relaxing, quiet and peaceful setting and inn. If you are looking for luxury and modern this is NOT the place for you, but if you want serenity and beautiful nature this is the place. We had a second floor room with a refrigerator and microwave, sofa, chair, table and two beds. It was roomy and allowed... More

Our four day vacation was interrupted by a brief electrical storm on Monday at 4:30pm. They had lights,in the lobby but no air or lights in most rooms. They claimed the state claims it was an act of God and there was nothing they could do. We felt the at least could have called in staff to get flash lights... More

We took our 8 year old grandson to McCormick's Creek State Park (Indiana). We stayed 4 days and 3 nights at Canyon Inn. We reserved a room with 2 beds for the 3 of us. This is an historic property at a State Park in the woods - so do not expect a high-end, glitzy-glam hotel. The room was comfortable... More

McCormick's Creek, and the Canyon Inn have not always been my favorite of the state park inns. However, having just been to another that is really showing its age, the Canyon Inn was very nice. We had a big, clean, comfortable room. Everything was in good working order. We really enjoyed the pool and park. It was a nice trip!

I stayed here for a business trip, 1st week of June and was really pleased with my experience. For someone used to staying in chain hotels by airports and factories this is a real treat - quietly nestled in a state park, surrounded by woods and nature. The only noise was from birdsong - lovely! The hotel was clean and... More

Spent two nights at the Canyon Inn at McCormick's Creek State Park, in Spencer, In. The Inn is very old but has everything you could want for a nice getaway. The park is beautiful and the hiking trails are great. Very well maintained all around. This was going into Memorial Day and the park was very full. Never felt crowded.... More

We always enjoy our stay at the Inn no matter what time of year. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The dinning room is a nice place to eat. Get a table by the bird feeders and watch the wildlife as you dine. Sit in front of the cozy fireplace and rock while you read or take a nap.... More

I really wanted to like this place, because the grounds were so pretty (the view from our room was so beautiful!), but the inn was just run down looking and not really very clean. I know it used to be an institution and it really looks like it. My in-laws stayed in a different wing, which was actually nicer looking... More

We have come here for many years but the inn is getting run down. Our shower head would not adjust it sprayed almost a solid stream. The bathroom sink has no vanity top. The carpet in the hallways was dirty and there was lady bugs every where. My wife had a few land on her while we were walking down... More

Our family has been visiting the park and Canyon Inn for nearly 44 years now. Inn is very clean and restaurant is outstanding. The staff is the best!!! When our entire family goes we use the Studio's which have a microwave and a small fridge. We love walking the trails, using the Nature Center, swimming in the summer and watching... More
