It's been a decade and quite a few visits since we first stayed at Hillside Inn for a week after being out of the country. It was pleasantly "retro" then and has maintained the image with a comfortable, spotless facility that is totally devoid of glitz, glam or the obsequious perkiness that some seem to equate with "service." Prices have... More

Basic, clean accommodation, but hasn't been upgraded in years. I was upset that it's listed in the AAA book as offerring an AAA member discount (and displays the AAA sign) but after we got a room quote we then showed our membership card and asked for the discount. "It's already factored into the price" said the lady. Not possible: how... More

My son recommended this hotel because of the proximity to his home. It seems the hotel has been owned by the same couple for some 30 years. It is meticulously maintained. It probably has not been upgraded much but, like a well kept older car, it has the charm of being somewhat vintage. The owner, obviously, takes great pride in... More

As others have stated, this motel is the cheapest option, that is still decent, in the area. For two people on a Saturday night in November it came to $93 with tax - tax added $11 to the bill. There is no breakfast included in the room rate, but there is a fantastic cafe attached to the building. The rooms... More

Managers are helpful and honest. Although the website gives contact info, when I emailed, instead of an answer to my inquiry, I received an email with the hotel phone number in response. Kitchen for $4.00 a night gets you four burners, plates, pots etc., a small oven (although no pan to cook in the oven) and a good half size... More

I like this hotel not just for usual reasons, cleanliness, etc, but a subtle retro transport to the 1960's. The pebbled deck cement of the swiming pool, starry glitter ceiling of my room, and older fixtures and architecture made me imagine the Brady Bunch may have stayed once in my room - well, maybe a little exaggeration - but the...

We stayed at the Hillside Inn in Santa Rosa recently for vacation. We made last minute reservations here, after someone in our large group suggested we stay there. I called to reserve my room, only a few days before my arrival date. The very nice lady on the phone said, "what time will you be here?". Well, I thought I... More

We needed a place to stay for one night and everything was booked for the marathon that weekend. This place did not take electronic reservations which had me a little nervous, but sure enough our reservation did hold (they will release it after 4pm unless you call with a credit card). It was a GREAT price for the area and... More

On tour in this part of California, we had no room booked and decided to try the Hillside Inn on the basis of a guide book recommendation. We got the last room for the night (it was about 4pm on a Saturday). It was a very comfortable and large room. The decor was a bit tired but it was very... More

I can see why this place has received high remarks. Yes, they are old school. What the heck is wrong with that every once in a while? I'm appreciating the fact that they hold people accountable for showing up to rooms. So, you have to show up by 4p otherwise they give the room away. You have to book by... More
