Enjoyed our stay at the inn. Buffet dinner was great. Sitting out overlooking the river is a great way to unwind. Service was friendly and helpful. Air conditioner in our room didn't seem to cool very well but was not a big problem. We will be back!

One of our favorite Motorcycle ride destinations from our home near Dayton, OH. We have stayed here several times. Its a nice State Park Lodge situated in a nice setting overlooking the Ohio River and the town of Madison. The facilities are nice. Common areas are well kept. We had a Parkside room on the 2nd floor. Somewhat inconvenient without... More

I have to say the state Park and Clifty Inn was the best part of Madison for our weekend stay. The hotel was booked out the night we stayed. The front staff was friendly when I asked for suggestions for food in Madison, although the signage downtown for the restaurants were so poor we couldn't even find the place. We... More

My family was skeptical about how comfrotable we'd be staying at a hotel in a state park. We were expecting the bare-bones experience and were delighted that the Clifty Inn was not only lovely but very comfortable. We had a lovely view of the river, and a little patio attached to our room. The front desk was very friendly, and... More

Stayed 2 nights here. Pleasant, quiet getaway. Close to home. Rooms were clean and spacious. Loved the expansive indoor pool and new hot tub. Food was excellent. Staff - friendly and helpful. Our patio ground level riverview room was great - nice view of the Ohio!

The staff at the front desk is so accommodating. I called around 5pm on a Friday evening from the parking lot overheated and exhausted, looking for a last minute room. They gave me the absolute last room they had and checking in only took moments. The room was wonderful and the view of the river was spectacular. It was truly... More

The Inn is an older structure in the Clifty Falls State Park. There is great potential here but it needs a good cleaning and maintenance. Our shower has mold growing in it, the furniture needs to be dusted. The sink drains are clogged and the faucets leak onto the counter top. Some of our party had ground floor rooms and... More

Yikes! Where to begin? It's safe to say that if you're under the age of 55, you'll probably want to steer clear of this place. While the staff for the most part are pleasant. This place is utterly berift of modern technology. I was ok with having my room changed three times because of an error the staff's part. But... More
