We had our wedding and reception at the Charley Creek Inn, and it was beautiful! The service was fabulous, then venue is gorgeous, and all of our guests loved it! It's such a unique location, much different than most hotels, because the charm and character cannot be matched. Plus, everything is top-notch--the decor is authentic and classic, and like you stepped back into the 20's, but with all the modern conveniences, and everything is impeccably done. This hotel is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed, and my wedding was everything I'd hoped it would be. The staff was wonderful too. Can't recommend this place enough!

I found the CCI randomly while passing through Wabash and in desperate need of WIFI for a work meeting. I found the WIFI, but I also found a ridiculously enjoyable hidden gem in the adorable town of Wabash. The wine flight was creative and fun, and the shop had a great selection. The best part about the wine shop is the attendant who wrote the book on friendliness and knows quite a bit about wine! I stayed for dinner at the restaurant, which was delicious and elegant food at surprisingly reasonable prices, just like the hotel itself. I would have stayed the night but they happened to be booked solid. Next time I will reserve in advance so I can enjoy a relaxing time in a painstakingly renovated historic and elegant space. This place runs on charm.

This place was amazing! From the service, staff, and rooms. Rich with history and very knowledgeable staff to explain the back story of the hotel and remodel that was done. It was a wonderful experience I am very happy to have stayed here. The price was perfect, a very high-end experience with an affordable price point.

A wonderful uniquely decorated hotel that displays its history through beautiful, period correct, restored furniture with beautiful rooms and an attentive staff. This out of the way inn is one that is worth the drive! We will most certainly stay here again!

I have stayed here twice and eaten at the restaurant many times. I love the atmosphere. The hotel is restored beautifully, the rooms are fun and themed, and the restaurant sometimes offers live music. The candy shop and the wine shop are fun to check out as well. The staff is friendly. I love coming here and there is nothing like this around this part of Indiana. It's a really neat place with touches of history to enjoy.

This can be a destination hotel. You can come to Wabash just to stay in this completely remodeled old hotel. Wealthy patrons paid a small fortune to update this hotel and restaurant (Twenty is its name) without losing the 1920s charm of its founding. Ambience is amazing. You feel like you are walking into another era. You can't open the entrance doors because they automatically open with pressure sensors. Hospitality. Distinctive. Unique. Carefully restored.
