We started 2 nights in the parkside wing. Don't be confused that there would be a park view. There is a parking lot view. The room has been updated with slate style tile throughout the bathroom and shower. The mattress was very nice and there were 10 pillows to choose from. There is no elevator in the parkside wings.

The Clifty Inn is a great place to stay when visiting the Madison area. Located in the State Park, the inn offers a wounderful view of the Ohio River. There is an indoor swimming pool that is good for the kids.

We've been going to the Clifty Inn for about 15 years now, but only every other year. It started out as a half way destination for those of us from north of Indy and those from TN.

We stayed here two nights. The rooms are a little dated in the "motor lodge" area where we stayed and we did not have a view of the Ohio River. The hotel staff was very nice. My husband accidentally left his wallet in the room and the staff retrieved it untouched.

This was a nice surprise for a state park lodge. Very cozy and comfortable. Nice rooms. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast and it was delicious! Decor was rustic and nice. Lovely place! We did a lot of hiking on nice trails. Beautiful place to visit.
