It took me a while to write this because I wanted to be fair to the owners, who are really very nice and accommodating. The rooms are very reasonable in price but do need updating badly. In addition the bath needed additional cleaning (mold in the shower, on the tiles). This was a one night stop on a trip to... More

This is the second trip where we have stayed at the Hillside Motel. No matter where you go, you will never find friendlier staff and better service. The room was clean and comfortable, and we had a great sleep.

My son and I were in a hockey camp in New York and we drove up the day after. We were going to arrive late so we called the owner ahead of time and he said absolutely not to worry and that he would look after us. A room was open when we got there and I did the paperwork... More

The owner was welcoming and warm, but the rooms we were given were less (much less) than expected. We had our daughter & her two young sons, our son, his wife and infant daughter and my wife and myself. We were assigned rooms that left a lot to be desired. There was a coffee maker with no coffee. We had... More

This is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for an affordable place to stay the night. The owner is very sweet and charming and goes out of his way to accommodate you. If you are looking for fancy, this is not the place for you. The place would be like staying at the motel 6. It was... More

The owners were warm and welcoming. They took great care in ensuring that we were happy with our room. We got a lovely suite with all the amenities. The owners have put a lot of work into keeping an older space clean and well-maintained, with a personal, family-run touch.

After a long day on the road it's nice to be greeted by someone who truly enjoys there job. My stay, albeit short, was both pleasant and comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thanks for everything!

When checking in...early I must add...we were met by the Owner who was very friendly and accommodating. He took the time to ensure we would be comfortable in our room and even offered a free upgrade! We planned on staying just one week but are now finishing our Third week! The staff are absolutely great...making sure we have everything we... More

I think I have a thing for older family run motels. Must be from my youth when there were no chains. Anyway, this one is well located to get to ferry in morning, has clean rooms with a good view, and excellent wi-fi. The check in person was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are "homey" and include TV, kitchen... More

I arrived late at night and was just stopping in for a place to rest. It was a quiet weeknight so the owner upgraded me free of charge to a room overlooking the Bay of Fundy . He gave me a map and a quick tour of points of interest. He knew the area very well and if I was... More
