Like others have said, if you are looking for a high end resort, this isn't it; however, if you are looking for a clean room with a comfortable bed at a great price, this is the place. Rakesh and his family go out of their way to make you feel welcome and actually spend time talking to each of their... More

Don't let the first appearance fool you. This motel has very nice rooms. the owner was very friendly and helpful in getting information about St John's tourist attractions. The breakfast was not great but the price was good. Room was clean, tastefully decorated and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. For the price it beats many of the chain hotels... More

I booked a room here after reading on the website that all rooms had ocean views and city lights views. That may be true for the main building. When I arrived, they sent me to a room across from the office. The only view was the parking lot, and the room (though it appeared to be very clean) had a... More

Friendly, helpful,manager who I recalled from earlier visits. Room had a view of the Bay of Fundy. The motel is on a high ridge to the south of the city... More

The Hillside Motel is a small, quite place with adequate facilities. The proprietor Rakesh Kant, is the best asset. My husband and I were weary seniors taking refuge from a thick fog in Saint John, NB. Mr. Kant gave us ferry information, the use of his phone when we had no connection and a clean room with a refrigerator, microwave,... More

A small little place,easy to get to and the price is reasonable for what you get. It is in need of some major cleaning up and some updates. Needs some TLC and maint. Owner was very friendly. It was ok for an overnite stay,just needs a little more care.

This motel is nothing fancy and really needs updating. That being said, the room was clean, it had a kitchenette, (which was one of reasons for staying there) and the bed was very comfortable. We had a great sleep. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. And the rate was very, very reasonable. If you like to walk, you can... More

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
