The room was very clean and reasonable for the price. I found the attitude of the owner slightly rude, but to be honest it did not detract from the experience too much. The pool was nice and the motel was very well situated for the Sonoma Valley. I probably wouldn't stay here again, but if you have a thicker skin... More

This is my second time here and I really have no complaints. This is a moderate level older property priced well for the area. The gentleman at the front desk who I believe is the owner checked me in efficiently quoting me a very accurate time for my room readiness (I was early) as well as giving me a very... More

We arrived late in the evening and were lucky to get the last free from. There was a warm and friendly welcome by the owner family. It´s not a 5-STAR-PREMIUM Hotel, but the best you can expect for the price.

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
