Have stayed at the Inn the once a year fore (pun intended) for the past three years. Wife and I went with three other couples as a "Stay and Play" option. The Inn is remodeled officers' housing from when this area was a major military base. The accommodations are thus dated but fun to see a piece of history, plus rooms are huge. Stayed in a Officer's house one year, which included several rooms, a kitchen, etcetera. Only stayed one night, could have easily made it a week. The golf course is outstanding. A nice old course, which has been redesigned to make it more playable (i.e. less narrow). Course is beautiful with many elevation changes. No golfer will be disappointed giving this course a shot, varying tee boxes for varying skill levels.

Room Tip: If you are going with a group of eight, may want to stay in an Officer's house. You will have t...

We just visited the Ft. Harrison St. Park Inn for a one night stay. It was very clean and comfortable. Very nice room with a huge bathroom. Also very quiet. We visited the State park which is just a short walk or drive from the Inn, it is a great place for runners, walkers or bikers. Plenty of trails and fishing.

I would stay here again. Only problem I could see was no WI-FI, if you need that you might reconsider.

The Good: Pretty location and building at Fort Harrison State Park. Big, clean, comfortable room. Nice gentleman at the front desk.

The Bad: When booking the room on the state park reservation site, I was told we could use both the online coupon and the military discount. However, once we arrived, we were told we could only use one (a decision of the manager, not the front desk worker). That is bad customer service since it greatly affected the price and would have influenced our decision to stay there. We could have stayed in a motel with more amenities (pool, breakfast) for much less, so I wouldn't say the value is very good, especially for families.

Customer Service is our #1 priority. We do apologize for any misinformation given. The coupon clearly stated that it could not be combined with any other discount. We value your review and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We attended a wedding at the park recpetion center The "Garrison". It was very nice..and very beautiful at night.

The wait staff..not so nice. There is a older woman who waited on us who was downright mean. She freaked that we had kids at our table. She refused to bring out our food until we removed are children from the table afarid she would "Hurt" them. My daugther had her shoes off. Under the table. She kicked one of her shoes at me. And on top of that was very rude and far too old to be interacting with people--especially children.

Might want to call ahead to make sure Granny isn't working the day of your event if you have kids attending a wedding.

We had a family birthday party at this property. The staff was great to work with from long distance. The food was good. The accommodations in the main inn were fancier than those at the Harrison House or the 3-Bedroom officer homes. Next time I would choose to house all of my guest in the main inn. This is a great place and the fall color in the park next door was fantastic.

Enjoyed my assignments to Fort Benjamin Harrison in the 1970's to attend various Army courses. Returned thirty-five years later to stay at the Harrison House (one of the five lodging facilities operated by the State at the old post), a renovated barracks originally built for nurses and very similar to one I lived in during the summer of 1977. Room was small, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The price was reasonable (I took advantage of a special rate), and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Harrison House is located across the parking lot from the former Officers' Club--which now serves a public golf course--and on the edge of the Fort Harrison State Park with its hiking, biking, horse trail rides, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Although the lodging facilities are not positioned near the downtown area, the golf course and state park provide a terrific getaway opportunity for both individuals and families.
The Golf Course provides only lunch and dinner (I did not eat there). A variety of chain restaurants are, however, located nearby.

My husband and I chose the Ft. Harrison State Park Historic Inn to have our sons rehearsal dinner. Wow, what a wonderful experience. From the first meeting with Kim, the event coordinator we felt at ease. As time drew closer we of course had many questions and she handled them with care. We had guest who had food allergies...not a problem. The chef made food especially for them. The day of the event we met with Dennis who was in charge of the event. I can't tell you in words how hard he worked to make sure that the event was everything that we wanted. Every detail was perfect! The room was beautiful. The food was not only good it was superb! Hot, fresh and delicious. We received many compliments from our 60+ guests but the real stars of the show are the Ft. Harrison Event Staff and Catering. Thank you again for making this once in a lifetime experience a special memory for our entire family.
