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

We have a 16 month old and we had a blast at the inn. We loved walking the grounds, trails, and play on the playground! I would recommend this place to anyone with family. This hotel is also located near downtown. The staff at the hotel his very helpful!

We had a lovely stay and splurged on a balcony room. However, what we had not counted on was that the balcony overlooked the power plant. Other than that, the room was very nice and comfortable, although the wifi was virtually nonexistent.

Glad to hear you had a great stay, yes we have the power plant but the view of the river is worth the stay. We are looking into upgrading the wifi with all the trees we do experience some delays. Hope you will stay with us again. More

First time stay at the Clifty Inn and really enjoyed it. Room was very clean and spacious. Stayed in one of the Riverview rooms. Ate twice in the dining room and the food was delicious! Very reasonable prices also. Don't miss the supper buffet. You won't leave hungry. Be sure to make plans to shop in Madison. Unique shops but... More

I'm writing this from one of the many cozy "nooks" this inn has to offer. Soon the sun will burn off the fog and I'll have a good view of the coal-fired power plant that I can hear droning in the background AND of the splendid Ohio River behind it. I splurged and got a balcony room, but with all... More

Halls smell like a gym. Noise from the nearby power plant. No wifi when they say there is. Some of the many emmenities of this location. Want a nice relaxing stay in a natural setting. Head to brown county inn. This location was a let down.

We stayed in the older part without the river view. The room was decorated very rustic with nice mountain lodge touches. It is just dark and smells musty. In fact the entire hallway had a strange smell to it. Our room wasn't the cleanest either. Towels and sheets appeared to be years old. There was a cookie under the bed,... More
