While in the Madison, IN, area we decided to check out the Clifty Inn for a possible future stay. We have only stayed at a couple of state parks over the years and have mixed feelings about them. So, this visit gave us an opportunity to see the Clifty Inn and we think this is a very attractive inn perched... More

Dee was wonderful but there were a few things that good have made this the best rating of a 5 with a few improvements. Winter months guests still want a warm pool esp when the hot tub is out of service, we barely tolerated 10min in the water. Room at first great but then noted a few things...lights throughout rm...

Thank you taking the time to let us know about your stay. I am sorry we fell short in a few areas as the kleenex under the bed was overlooked, I guarantee you that the room was clean and sanitary. Thank you hope to see you again. More

If you don't need WIFI then this may work for you. Speedtest.net measured WIFI at 0.15 MPS. Convenient restaurant. I benefited from the Winter 2for1 Sun-Thurs special that Indiana has at State Park Lodges. Construction and finish is decent. Heating unit is so-so.

We had most of our meals in the dining room and utilized the nice pool, the arcade and the common areas. My family stayed in a suite which was... More

We stayed for 2 nights in late October. The inn is situated on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River. The setting is beautiful although you also get to view giant smokestacks. There are great (and challenging) hikes throughout the park with several waterfalls. Our basic room (no river view) was quiet and comfortable. There is an odd (chemical) smell,but it... More

First of all I want to say that I love staying at State Park Inns because they have everything you need for a real vacation, you don't have to leave the property unless you really want to.

Our room was nice. Based on reviews I read, I was nervous! Even though the smokestacks were in the view, it didn't detract. Inn was very nice, as were desk staff. However, we had the breakfast buffet on a Monday morning and it was not good. I think they were short staffed also, but service staff were polite and as... More
