We had booked a double room: 2 beds, and were expecting the usual double beds. Although Mr. Kant had mentioned "efficiency" in his email, I was not expecting more than a fridge and a microwave. To our surprise: he gave us a sunny corner room with 2 queen beds, and it was equipped with EVERYTHING: Large flat screen TV, sink,... More

We stayed for 2 nights in Saint John because of appointments in the hospital. The owner Kent is a really lovely guy and super friendly. The hotel rooms are old but they were extremely clean. We have a lot experience with hotels and it was rarely that clean. The furniture is unfortunately old but everything is done with love. Thank... More

This motel is on its last legs. The best I can say about it was it was inexpensive, comfortable, but small.This would not be my choice another time I'm in Saint John, NB. The owner/operator was friendly and we wish them well

Wow, talk about different experiences. We stayed here four night, 2nd-6th and our room was clean. Everything worked. We enjoyed the balcony in front of our room, especially as it was padlocked so no one was out there to block the great views of the water from two views. The owner was solicitous of our comfort and while we were... More

I don't know what hotel everyone else on here is raving about but this hotel should be torn down. We would have turned around and left, but we got there at 3am after 8 hours on the road with a baby and we were just too tired. As it was, we actually set our alarm for early in the morning... More

The room was as small as we expected as we were informed when reserving the room. It was quiet and fairly clean. The friendly service was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. It needs a little work here and there but very good for the price. I've seen better and worse. 2 1/2 stars for this one.

I had the pleasure of being a guest at this establishment and payed very affordable daily and weekly rates for housekeeping units. Both rooms had views of the Bay of Fundy and the motel is close to shopping and entertainment. Staff were friendly and efficient, going out of their way to ensure an enjoyable stay. I wouldn't hesitate in booking... More

My wife and I stayed here in July 2013 for $100 1 night. The owners were amazing the room was great with a nice ocean view. We were about 10 minutes from the city center where all the restaurants and shops are. We had breakfast with them and it was amazing and fresh. There is a 40" flat screen in... More

I stayed at the Hillside Motel with friends on 2 occasions last month. We were able to upgrade to a family room on arrival, and the owner organised the same upgrade for our second visit. The manager Rakesh was very helpful, and organised pizza for us, as we didn't want to go out driving after a long trip. The beds... More

Recently stayed overnight at this wonderful family run motel. The place was very clean and comfortable providing more than I could have hoped for. It is so close to the city center and there are many shops nearby. The staff is friendly staff and knowledgeable.
