We stayed 2 nights in a comfortable room that had an adjoining kitchen. There was plenty of space and comfortable bed. We also appreciate that there was an outdoor swimming pool. This is not a new hotel, but it is clean, had everything we needed, and was a great deal for the price. We will definitely stay there again.

We had a large suite with kitchenette, for a family of four. Very comfortable and spacious. Like other reviewers have said, it's not fancy, but for us it was perfect. The pool was lovely, heated just enough for evening swims. Some reviews talk about leaves in the pool, but that is a result of having lovely trees around you while... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hillside. It is in a great location with stores and nature close by. The bed was really comfortable. Rooms are clean. Atmosphere quiet and comfortable. I could hear the road. I could not hear noises from other hotel guests and the hotel was full. The pool was nice also. I would stay here again... More

I visit Santa Rosa once a month to spend time with my son. I've stayed in many different budget / mid-range hotels, and this one is by far the best. Very clean room, albeit a bit dated in style, but super comfortable. Nice TV with Direct TV service, plus Wi-Fi. Excellent location. I also think it's family owned, which in... More

We stayed here for one night due to availability and location of hotel to our destination. Room and hotel grounds were clean, room was spacious. Not too many frills, rooms need updating but overall I would definitely stay here again. I am comparing this hotel to $200/night rooms in the same area (near Sonoma Valley wineries). We paid $96/night so... More

I needed a room as I was taking a class at the local hospital 5/1-5/2 (I am an RN) and called for a reservation. They only had a double but the rates were very reasonable ($90) so I booked. I used to live in Santa Rosa and St Helena and know how high the local hotel charges get during tourist... More

With my family living in the same town, the Hillside Inn was a very comfortable and convenient place to stay for eight nights. The location of the Hillside was great for all the activities we planned from Napa Valley to the Armstrong Redwoods. The room was extremely clean and the staff very friendly. My only suggestion would be to have... More

The Hillside Inn is by far the BEST VALUE in the state. Where else can you find a 1bd. with a kitchen for around a hundred dollars. It is immaculate, the Owner Bob and his son Bob, Jr. take such pride of ownership and are very service oriented. The rooms are extremely comfortable and there's a pool. They run a... More

Just returned from a three night stay at the Hillside Inn with my sister-in-law. The property was recommended to us by family in Santa Rosa. We were both pleased with our stay and had no issues with either the motel or the staff. Yes, we did meet Bob. I expected a reservation in my name, but was informed by Bob... More

We stayed at the Hillside Inn for two nights while in town for a funeral. A family member booked us a "suite" with a king bed in one room and 2 fulls in the other on the second floor. There was no living area to speak of, but the king room was separated from the 2 bedded room and bathroom... More
