I stayed at the Clifty Inn for one night when I was in Madison for a conference. The room was clean, well appointed, I got a great rate, and check-in was a breeze. While I did not use the pool, it was in good shape and there is a nice gift shop in the lobby. I will say that the...

We just stayed for 1 night. Room was nice and bed was comfortable. Great view of the Ohio river, but also a view of the nearby power plant. Hard to understand why they built it there 50 years ago, but it doesn't smell or anything just ruins the view to the west. The waterfalls are nice especially if the rain...

The hotel is a wonderful place well maintained and the rooms are very nice. The restaurant on the other hand is about a 2 star establishment. The dining room is very nice but the food sucks. There were scrambles eggs in the buffet that would bounce if you dropped them on the floor. They need to update their menu and...

We were to have an accessible room due to mobility issues but got a room at the far end of a hall. The air conditioning was not working, but we were told to open our patio door. They said they had no fan. We asked for a room change again the next morning as some guests were checking out. Amy,...

Have stayed at Clifty Inn many times through the years. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The hotel is kept clean. Like all Indiana park hotels it is showing its age. The park and water falls are beautiful. Many of the trails are tough, but trials 9 and 10 are easy. The fried chicken on the Buffet is terrific....

I enjoy writing reviews with the hope that someone will find them helpful, but there's always the chance one will come back to haunt you. Last year my wife and I attended the Valentine Dinner and Dance at Clifty Falls Inn and it was wonderful. I wrote my review and couldn't wait to return this year. I hope no one...

Our accommodations were excellent. Stayed in room 303. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Our view was of the river and downtown Madison. We enjoyed watching the boats on the river and the lights at night were spectacular. There are many areas throughout the Inn to just sit and relax and we enjoyed sitting by the fireplace in the...

Our family stayed here 4 nights from out of state for a family wedding in Madison. Though it was a bit chilly, several members of our group enjoyed some hiking and wildlife sightings in the State Park. We had requested a river view when making reservations, so we were surprised that there was a large power plant smack in the...

We stay at Clifty Inn many times a year and want to encourage you to do the same. It is a State Park Inn which is a little different from a chain hotel. I rooms may be a little rustic but that is part of the charm. Look into the suites very nice for a get-a-way. Plus the food in...
