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

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 While it definitely has outdated decor and old furniture we found it very clean.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

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.
