We are a family of 4, including 2 teens. We have stayed at the Clifty Inn a handful of times prior to this trip and we've always really enjoyed it. It's an easy drive from our home and we love Madison and driving over the bridge into Kentucky. I reserved a walk out double bed room as it was pretty...

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. It was the inconsistencies / misses we experienced which were disappointing. The Inn is a beautiful building. The grass had not been cut and gave an unkept exterior appearance. Amy, front desk, was very personable and helpful. Complimentary coffee and tea is great. Lots of gathering spaces to play games, rock, visit....

We have stayed here many times. This time we booked a suite in the Parkside area of the hotel. Was nice at first. But next morning there were plumbing problems. Had to flush toilet multiple times to get it to flush and there was water visible inside drain in shower and shower would not work. Had to move to a...

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....
