Don't get me wrong...We have been going to McCormick's SP for years. The dining is excellent, especially the Easter Buffet. The campground and the hiking are great but our first and only stay at the Inn was substandard. We were put in a single room that had a single bed that was way too small for two adults and the...

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you were disappointed in your room. Those rooms and baths are small. I was glad to see you enjoy the park, the food and holiday buffets at the inn. Thank you for being a great customer! Please know Canyon Inn and other state park inns have larger rooms. We hope you have the... More

The Lotz family -- my family -- has been holding family reunions here every summer since 1978. This place holds a lot of memories for us. My kids came here when they were infants. Now they're brining their children, my grandchildren, to make the memories, too. That said, I'll try to be objective in my review. This is obviously not... More

Our 2nd time staying here. Canyon Inn rates a 4 for the beauty,hiking and price alone. The rooms are nice, clean, comfortable, but not luxury accommodations. The spacious lodge area is wonderful for visiting, reading, playing games, The trails are a must, including the Wolf Cave if you don't mind getting dirty and having to crawl on all fours to... More

We attended a family wedding here. We did not stay here, THANK GOD! I have stayed at state park hotels in West Virginia, and while they are out-dated like this one and have that, whatever odor...have never been able to pin-point it exactly, I've never seen a hotel room with a smaller bed & smaller room area than here.

We went to Canyon Inn for a night. The rooms were fine, typical for Indiana State Parks. It was a little noisy as we could hear a baby crying in an adjacent room. Check in and check out was fast and efficient. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is in a great location if you like to hike.... More

The CanyonInn was formerly a sanitarium back in the early 20th century. It has been renovated to a lodge style hotel within McCormick's Creek State Park. I love the lodge type atmosphere inside and the 375 acres of trees. For birdwatchers, it's a paradise. I saw indigo buntings, and other rare birds. Our room had a large bathroom and nice... More

Rustic and quaint on beautiful grounds. Staff friendly. Room clean and pleasantly decorated. Restaurant great with excellent buffet. A bit pricey to eat here but worth it. The only complaint I have is the pool isn't heated and even though it was June it was too chilly. Kids were turning blue and had to get them out of water. Everything... More

We stayed in a large 3rd floor room with two queen beds, a large sofa bed, table and chairs, desk, refrigerator, television and microwave. Very comfortable beds in the large, pleasant room. The first floor lounge with a lovely fireplace is especially welcoming. This was our first visit to the Canyon Inn; we will definitely return.
