Stayed here over Thanksgiving in the Fisherman Cabins (330 - 340). First off they are very dated and could use some updating. The bedding looks like it's straight out of the 80s or 90s. The beds are on wheels, which can't be locked, so the bed would roll around pretty easily. This is not good when you have a small... More

I would like to take this time to thank you for staying with us. Comments from guests like you assist management in rectifying guests concerns. I sincerely apologize for the conditions of the fisherman villas. We are making improvements to the villas as funding becomes available. We will be replacing the glass sliding doors and painting the villas' interior and... More

Needing time to lay back and relax.....we selected the Inn. It's Fall, leaves cover the ground and the air is crisp and clean. We were a little disappointed with room. Carpet badly stained, needing a good cleaning and there were dust bunnies on the upper wall where the vents blow out...needing to be cleaned. Beautiful view of the lake,with balcony... More

Having never been here before I did not know what to expect from the inn when I was invited to the birthday party of a dear friend that was being held here.

We spent a delightful fall weekend at this wonderful park. Park is huge, with many amenities--good restaurant, tennis courts, golf course, swimming pool, lots of hiking trails. The only unpleasant experience that we had was with the riding stables. I have been on many trail rides, but never one as awful as this one. All of the staff people that... More

Although the view of the lake and woods from the hotel room is beautiful, especially from the balcony, the building in which the room is located stands out from the lovely environment as an ugly intrusion. The door to our room had significant peeling paint. The bedding was old and suspect, and the rug on the floor was significantly stained... More

Apparently, none of the slightly high room rent is being plowed back into the lodge! The water may, or may not, be potable, but I wouldn't even use it to brush my teeth, as it was brown, as was the toilet water and it got browner over the three days we were there. They could invest in some new mattresses... More

I want to thank you for staying with us at Fall Creek Falls State Park. I apologize for the condition of your room and the water. The severe drought we are having has caused the water table to be very low and the water department is supplying us discolored water. Hopefully we will get some rain to solve this problem.... More

The rooms were state park standard, but I really appreciated the porch and lake view. The breakfast buffet had plenty of options (really good biscuits), including a nice fresh fruit selection; the servers bring your drinks, otherwise it is self-serve. I spent some time at the bar one evening trying local brews (Calfkiller) yum. Otherwise, the bartender was attentive and... More

Our room was clean but very quaint and antiquated. We had a decent view of the lake from a somewhat private balcony but those are about the only good things I can say about it. The Inn is more of a motel than a hotel. The doors to the rooms are very loud when they close and can be heard... More
