Canyon Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Spencer B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2017

If you are in the area and looking for a neat place to stay, you cannot beat the Canyon Inn. Rustic Inn with rustic rooms. Nice area to hang out if it is rainy or cold with a fire place. Always a great staff, with great customer service. Will return this winter.

The only issue I have with the whole place is that you have to pay. $7.00 fee to enter park, even if you are staying at the Inn.

Room Tip: The rooms in the wing added years ago, are much nice then the older wing.

We decided to visit the Canyon Inn restaurant instead of packing a picnic on our recent hiking excursion at the park. We arrived at 1230pm on a Sunday for lunch. We opted for the buffet. Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, Turkey Breast, and sliced Pork were our meat options. All were wonderful. Potatoes, vegetables, salad bar, soup, and dessert as well. The soup was fantastic and the bar provided many options for your salad. Not a five star because the dessert needed some work. There were several options of pie, but I only like fruit pie, so that is what I tried. Overall... great food and will return in the future.

This was your typical park inn. Nothing fancy, but not a cheap budget hotel either. The only complaint I have is the beds - they were hard as bricks. But, when we got there, there were 2 huge dumpsters full of old mattresses. We may have been in a room that didn't have new ones yet. Other than that, it was just fine.

We often go here for a long weekend getaway. The rooms are super clean and set in a log cabin motif. The staff is always kind and super helpful. The food is always excellent. But most of all, the views are spectacular and relaxing. Take some time for yourself to relax and rejuvenate here!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms offer an amazing view!

During the Month of March, some of the Indiana State Park Inns ran a special so we decided to take advantage of the rate and stay there instead of a more generic hotel. It's an older kind of creaky old building but has a charm of it's own. The larger suite room we stayed in was nice, but the mattress wasn't great and lighting was a bit dim. The bathroom is tiny with very little space for cosmetics, etc. However they had plenty of outlets, the TV was up to date the sofa comfortable and the area was relaxing.

Room Tip: we were on the third floor and there were a lot of odd noises from mechanical systems.
