This place is not even close to fancy, but you get what you pay for. We just needed a place to spend the night before taking the ferry to Nova Scotia that was pet friendly. The room decor is very tired but clean, the beds comfortable though I did find some hairs on the sheets... don't want to think about... More

I stayed at the Hillside 3 separate times out of necessity and all 3 times were terrible. I would advice anyone who thinks of going there to reconsider and go anywhere but there. First off the owners do not have any extra staff to be in the office so if they are not there expect to wait an hour for... More

I've been meaning to share about this place for several months. After we checked out, my husband and I left the motel towards the ferry. Little did I know.... I left my favorite jacket at Hillside. The manager/ owner literally called the staff at the ferry, and since he knew what our vehicle looked like, he asked them to see... More

Wonderful little family run business. Owner was very polite, courteous and friendly. Close to everything. Price was amazing for what you get. Room very clean, tidy. Hot water , good internet, cable tv, little kitchenette. lots of parking. Safe. I will stay there every time I pass through New Brunswick.

Stayed there with my husbands hockey team. Very adorable for a bunch of college students. While it definitely has outdated decor and old furniture we found it very clean. For $50 a night it was exactly what it should be, a clean warm place to lay your head. Ours had a flat screen tv two big beds in a separate... More

When I called to book a room, I asked 2 things - did they have internet and did they have air conditioning? I was told yes to the internet and that they had a suite with a/c. I had only wanted a standard room but said okay, it was only $70 for a suite and I really wanted the a/c.... More

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
