We stayed in a suite to splurge for our 40th wedding anniversary. More money than we wanted to spend but with a lovely balcony and view of the river, we thought we only have one 40th anniversary so let's do it right. When I called for the reservation I asked if it truly was a river view, yes the nice...

This was a last minute decision and one I don't regret. I stay in a room with one bed and it was clean and well decorated. The staff was very helpful and friendly and as always I loved the hiking. Great getaway.

I enjoy coming here with my family sometimes for a change. Overall, the food is pretty good. Some things taste home-made and others don't. I mostly like everything except the mash potato taste like it comes from a box, their salad is not always fresh (you can tell it comes from a bag), and their onion soup is too salty....

We are a family of 4, including 2 teens. We have stayed at the Clifty Inn a handful of times prior to this trip and we've always really enjoyed it. It's an easy drive from our home and we love Madison and driving over the bridge into Kentucky. I reserved a walk out double bed room as it was pretty...

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. It was the inconsistencies / misses we experienced which were disappointing. The Inn is a beautiful building. The grass had not been cut and gave an unkept exterior appearance. Amy, front desk, was very personable and helpful. Complimentary coffee and tea is great. Lots of gathering spaces to play games, rock, visit....

I stayed at the Clifty Inn for one night when I was in Madison for a conference. The room was clean, well appointed, I got a great rate, and check-in was a breeze. While I did not use the pool, it was in good shape and there is a nice gift shop in the lobby. I will say that the...

We just stayed for 1 night. Room was nice and bed was comfortable. Great view of the Ohio river, but also a view of the nearby power plant. Hard to understand why they built it there 50 years ago, but it doesn't smell or anything just ruins the view to the west. The waterfalls are nice especially if the rain...
