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.

The service was excellent and everything was very clean. The owners are very accommodating. The area is very nice if you want a suburban location. I have stayed in many other hotels outside downtown and none was as nice as Hillside.

We stayed for 3 nights in October '13. Mr Kant was very welcoming and provided maps and directions to all the local attractions. The room that we stayed in was very basic but we didn't feel that we would need anything exceptional because we came to see the city/province not a motel room. I would recommend this motel only for... More

The Hillside Motel was certainly on a hillside, with a site sloping steeply. The rooms were fairly basic, but satisfied our needs. It was both easy to find and the owner was both friendly and helpful - providing maps and instruction to find restaurants (including, but not only, his wife's).

Last fall, we stayed in the same family suite as the review below. We were perfectly happy with the suite and pleasantly surprised (it exceeded our expectations). Considering the price, we were expecting far less. The service was excellent and everything was clean. Mr Kant went out of his way to ensure our needs were looked after. This was the... More

We had booked an ‘executive two bedroom family suite’, shared full kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms. The saying: “you get what you pay for” is certainly true in this case. We only paid $ 104 for 4 adults but found an apartment which hadn’t seen renovations in a long time. The furniture was very old and the apartment felt uncomfortable. It... More
