Very reasonable older but clean motel. Kant gave us a map and showed us how to get to the Reverse Waterfall and places to eat as well as how to get to the ferry. He was an excellent host.Free coffee and tea and cereal great value! Thanks Kant!

We just came back from a week in Nova Scotia with our trailer and used the Hillside Motel as a somewhat half-way stopping place between CT, USA and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The drive would have been 13 hours one way otherwise. Selected this hotel based on other good reviews and we were not disappointed. We arrived rather late at... More

This room comes with every appliance you could want. The large bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. It is a bit of a time warp back to the seventies in terms of decor. The bathroom with it's pink and black tile work could use an upgrade. Great view of the bay of Fundy, could see ships going by.

My 90 year old mom along with two ladies in their 60’s wanted to do a 10 day trip on the cheap to PEI in Canada from New York. I was the organizer and chauffer. The entire trip cost about 1k, excluding van rental and fuel. This trip was all about sightseeing, eating good seafood and inexpensive lodging; this motel... More

Reviews of this motel have been all over the place. Unfortunately, our experience was not good - our room was absolutely dreadful - two double beds, both horribly uncomfortable - hard as rocks - there were exposed pipes in the ceiling - the bathroom didn't have any outlets - the television was an ancient analog - the bedspreads and curtains...

The family suite we stayed in was not part of the motel. It was very spacious and comfortable. The building was older but rooms were clean and the suite was well equipped - full kitchen, flat screen tv, wifi and best of all, excellent service. The location was very good for the main sights in Saint John and surrounding area.

Our family suite was large and clean wIth nice views. Basically a two bedroom apartment with kitchen and living room. The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Saint John.

Have stayed here several times and will again. The rooms are consistently clean, cozy, the view is very pleasant to wake up to after travelling. Wifi works great too. The owner is very nice. It has been quiet each time I've stayed here. The complimentary coffee and breakfast is fresh and at the ready. I haven't had any bad experience... More
