What are the keep setting of the paragraph where you insert the table?
Sometimes it might help to insert the table into a single text frame, not part of the story, so it is handled like an image with text wrap.

Of course, but with regular in-line tables there is no reason at all for this erratic behavior. I've had this for ever with my trusty old CS4 (going as far as "going wrong" when exporting for Print -- fortunately the printer warned me 'something was wrong'). There simply is no reason for InDesign to re-format these pages; and even if there is, there is no reason to suddenly move entire tables to the next page.
'Good' to hear the problem persists in CC, 3 or 4 versions -- depending on how you count -- later than what I am still using. It kind of proves my point not immediately updating to every new version in between was a pretty good decision.
Usually forcing a re-compose (hold on while I look up the hotkey..) -- "Recompose all stories --- Default: Ctrl+Alt+/" -- makes ID consider the formatting again, and gets it right second time. That, however, is no guarantee, as a next edit may mess it up again.
I am also getting this behavior occasionally (ID CC2015). It tends to happen when the table is on a page that also contains footnotes. When I do any editing of the table it jumps to the next page. The solution I've come up with is to temporarily change the height of the frame on the page that the table is supposed to be on. This causes it to revert to its correct position and the page frame can be returned to its previous height. But any further adjustment of the table makes it jump again. Quite annoying as it only happens with some tables and not others.
