The maids leave the doors open to 'air' the rooms, and commonly leave them unattended. My parents room was left open, with a laptop in easy reach, I closed the door, no harm, no big deal. A small gift WAS taken from my brother's room. When we reported it to the owner/manager, he was ZERO help. He was actually antagonistic!... More

The owner is such a nice guy and the staff was great ever time I have stayed. The rooms are very comfortable, very nice and gives you a warm... More

I grew up in Santa Rosa but nearly twenty five years ago I moved away. I have had to stay at the horrible Hill Side because of it's close location to my Grandmother's house and Pacific Market. I have gone once or twice a year for at least 7 years. Ever since the first time I stayed there there has... More

Convenient location even if not the most upscale place in town. My room was clean and comfortable. Good maid service daily. The breakfast at their affiliated cafe is really great with an upscale menu. Or you can walk to the Lyons Restaurant next door if you want a Denny's type menu. I had good luck with the staff on the... More

I was put off by two things, one the bathroom was tiny and had no fan or heater in it. also, the rooms were not equipped iwth an iron (should be standard in hotels). When I called... More

I just got off the phone with whomever answered at the Hillside Inn. My husband and I are looking for a place to stay in Santa Rosa for 2 days while we get utilities and furniture set up at a house we've bought in the area. We have a small 20 lb terrier dog. The AAA Tourbook lists the Hillside... More

We recently stayed at the Hillside Inn for about a month while our house was being worked on after our water pipes froze and burst. The rooms are a bit dated but they are nice and very clean. We stayed in the family room which had plenty of space for the 3 of us. This type of room works well... More
