We truly enjoyed the three days and two nights at the Canyon Inn at Spencer, Indiana. We have joined our friends for two for one night specials several times and will be joining them again in mid February 2017. We look forward to the quiet time and great food at the inn.

I stayed here with a few friends while visiting IU for the weekend. Bloomington hotels cost so much on football weekends, so this was a much more affordable choice, and it's only about 20 minutes away. We arrived after dark and left fairly early in the morning, so we didn't get to explore the grounds. But the inn itself is...

Thank you for your review. I hope you have the opportunity to return to Canyon Inn and stay a few days to enjoy all McCormick's Creel State Park has to offer.

Dated! The outside of The Canyon Inn at McCormick's Creek State Park is very pretty and nice. The landscaping is welcoming and it looks like you should want to stay here. The front desk staff was very friendly and nice ready to help us with anything. However, once we got to our room with an actual key and went inside,...

This is one of seven State Park Inns and it is as beautiful and quaint as a lot of the other ones. They have different types of rooms. I stayed in a historic room and it was just right for one person. Loved the décor and the staff was awesome. Rooms were very clean and the food in the dining...

We didn't stay at the hotel because we were camping at the state park campground. But we wanted to check out the restaurant because we always enjoy the state park inn dining rooms. We were more impressed with this one than most of the others we have tried. They had an evening special of fried chicken, salad & soup bar,...

I could never say enough good things about the Indiana State Park lodges. The Canyon Inn is one of the best. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are well appointed. I've stayed here several times and they never disappoint me. Defiantly check out the lodge dining room for at least one meal. The food is always great.

We recently spent a weekend at the Canyon Inn at McCormick's Creek State Park in Spencer, Indiana. The Inn is built on the foundations of a 19th Century Sanitarium where the well-to-do once went to relax when they were over-stressed. And the Inn is still an excellent place to go for that!. A charming rustic lobby complete with fireplace and...

“One point to consider--because this is an older property, the hallways are quite narrow, at least on the third floor where we were located.”
  • Lamp post in room.
  • Partial view of room. (There are actually two queen beds in here.)
