Wanted river view rooms...but they were booked. Park side rooms are not as bad as I thought they would be. There is a musty smell to the building. Rooms are cute and seem to have been renovated. There were two beds, small microwave and refrigerator, dresser, small table and easy chair. Outside the room there is a table with two... More

Clifty Falls State Park is one of the hidden gems of Indiana, with breath taking views of the Ohio River and Clifty Creek Canyon. The Inn may not be a luxury resort, but it is a pleasant place to stay while you are in the area. The staff is very friendly, the rooms a good sized, and the indoor pool... More

Having grown up in Indiana, this was always a favorite place . . but it's been 40 years since I've been here. It's only gotten more beautiful. This is a great hotel with amazing views of the Ohio River. Glad we came back

Get there before the park opens otherwise you are going to pay admission to the park just to eat. Staff where very helpful. we had asked our waitress about some of... More

We are staying at all the state park inns in Indiana and this was the worst one. We checked in and they told us the inside pool was closed for repairs along with the hot tub. No big deal we came to hike. Tried to turn on our tv to check the local weather and couldn't get anything. Finally went... More

We love Madison and the park was very pretty. Our room was very expensive, so I expected it to be well maintained. It was very spacious, had a dining area and huge bedroom. The view from the balcony was industrial and there was a strange door to nowhere in the bedroom. There were fingernail clippings in living area on the... More

Very disappointed with our stay there. Upon arriving they told us they couldn't find our reservation. The front desk clerk (Amy) was extremely rude and told us that we must have made a mistake. She then turned and ignored us. The general manager happened to come up and we asked her for help. We got the same response. After having... More

Clifty Inn is such a great place to stay with so many different activities. We stay here every year and it's just the best! Room is beautiful, clean, quiet and the beds are comfy. We always try to get the riverview side with a balcony. They have a fire pit that you can use.

We stayed here the first of March. The inn is beautiful, and the room was large and decorated nicely. We had a riverview room. We chose one without a balcony, since it was still quite cold outside. Had we had more time, we'd have stayed another night or two. There is a nuclear power plant across the road from this... More
