This hotel is beautifully located in the Clifty Falls State Park. It sits on a bluff overlooking the river. It is, by far, the best place to stay in Madison, IN. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: We stayed in a queen suite, which is spacious and comfortable There is a small kitchenette with small fridge and microwave/sink The... More

My sister and I specifically chose the Clifty Inn for our visit to southern Indiana because our mom and aunt grew up in this area and we have old photos of them at the old Clifty. While the old Clifty Inn is no longer around, the newer buildings are very nice and showcase items from the original buildings. We had... More

We reserved a block of rooms here for our wedding guests. We were given a group code which typically gives you a discount....but this code was simply just to be guaranteed a room, no discount which I thought was odd since we had 50+ rooms booked. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The ones facing the river are much... More

My sisters and I stayed at the Clifty Inn in Madison, IN for two nights. The pictures on the Website did not do the Inn justice. The Inn is lovely with an outdoors theme. There were several stuffed animals encased in glass cases. This may not sound good, but the animals looked alive. They were beautiful. Our rooms were very... More

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 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
