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. So I was really excited to stay here for a weekend of hiking and relaxing. From about 10 miles out of town, you... More

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

Cliffty is a great weekend getaway with very very clean rooms,nice pool ,great hiking trails,and beautiful scenery. I have seen everything from deer to owls roaming in the park. All of the kids go to the pool and a few of us hike. I would refer this hotel for anyone because it is probably one of the nicest hotels to... More

We really loved this hotel. We got a riverview suite, and it was worth every penny. We came during the fall, so we kept out balcony doors open, and enjoyed the river breeze in our room. It was wonderful. Some people complain about the smokestacks in the view, but honestly, we think they are kind of cool. We love walking... More

We continue to go back to Clifty Falls for the beautiful park, hiking, cycling, food and the lovely city of Maidson, Indiana. The lodge has nice spacious rooms that are comfortable and pretty updated. Room prices depend on time of year and what's happening but wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff is very professional, knowlegeable and pleasant. Not much else... More

This was our 2nd trip to Madison for our anniversary. The first time we stayed in the downtown area. I was surprised by the state park and lodge. Staff was friendly and rooms were nicer than anticipated considering we stayed in one of the cheapest rooms due to nothing else being available. We enjoyed hiking on the trails through the... More

Hidden away near a quaint river town an easy drive from Cincinnati and Indianopolis, is the Clifty Falls Inn. The decor was in keeping with the park theme. Very relaxing stay there. The onsite restaurant's food was delicious (try the spinach omelette) and VERY reasonably priced. Amenities such as the pool, many hiking trails, onsite restaurant, and beautiful views make... More

Our room was very clean and had a wonderful view of the Ohio River. The room was large with a small fridge, microwave and all of the other appliances you might need. I enjoyed sitting around the fire pit at night with the river right there. Breakfast is not included in the price, but prices are reasonable, the food delicious... More

Chose this hotel while visiting Madison based onTrip Advisor reviews. I was a bit skeptical as it was a State property, but it was rated #1 in Madison and had received many positive reviews.. After reading tips from other guests, I requested a room on the 4th floor with a balcony facing the Ohio River. The room was quite nice,... More
