The Riverview building is the place to stay. We stayed in a regular double room a few years ago and were impressed. This time we splurged on a suite and it was totally worth it for our family of four. We had suite 401 - top floor of the Riverview building. The living room was huge. It had nice hardwood... More

This inn is spectacular -- Had a Riverview suite for weekend 4/5 and 4/6, Room is very spacious and has great view of the Ohio river and the town of Madison. Room very clean and comfortable. Dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on Monday morning were both very lavish and good with very competent wait staff. You will enjoy the... More

We were traveling home and decided to stop at the Clifty Inn at the Clifty Falls State Park and it was a pleasant surprise. The room was fresh, clean, updated and spacious. We had a river view room and had a nice view of the river. The power plant below the Inn is lighted at night and not bad to... More

This place is a special find. High on a hill overlooking the Ohio River. Scenic views if you overlook the power plant on the river below the hotel. We have stayed in many state parks and this is one of the best. Rooms are modern, clean and quiet. The restaurant has nice views and the food is good. If you... More

Nice hiking trails for all ages and levels, good view when you aren't near the nuclear plant, and really nice state park hotel. Pretty good food and they will pack you a to-go lunch. Nice clean pool with ramp. Lots of little nooks for games and tv in the many different lobbies.

This was a surprise Valentine's trip from my husband. The view was amazing, room was spotless with comfy beds and beautiful decor. The breakfast buffet was excellent, your waitress can get you as many eggs as you want, cooked any way you want so that was a great surprise. The waitress was so nice and sweet. Beautiful inn and we... More

Second time visiting the Inn and enjoyed the ground level room with an outdoor patio overlooking the Ohio River and historic Madison. The staff are pleasant and quick to respond any concerns. A special thank you to Melissa for the friendly service and coffee!

Anyone travelling in the US and staying all too often in corporate hotels will find the Clifty Inn a splendid antidote. The whole place is old-fashioned yet roomy and comfortable. There's a generous scattering of stuffed wild animals (locally sourced) in the public spaces, excellent views, pleasant outside seating, balconies in the rooms, and a great deal of wood everywhere,...

After reading the negative comments that people have written, I had to laugh. The complaints that some people have are simply ridiculous. You cannot blame Clifty Inn for the power plant being in the way of your view of the river, or for having to pay a park entrance fee (FYI if you travel during the off season you don't... More
