I read the review on the owner/manager, and I thought, well, that won't affect me. But I guess I was wrong. We stayed there two nights, and on the first day, I went to the office to say that we didn't need maid service the next morning, that we could take care of ourselves. The owner/manager said we had to... More

My parents are Santa Rosa locals, but we were going to stay at the hotel so my 3 small children could have a chance to swim. My children had run out of the room to look down at the pool. We had them come inside because we know that it's not okay to have children running in the hallway. Once... More

The staff was less then friendly. Shortly after leaving (on route to the airport) we noticed we had forgotten something. When we called a few days later they mentioned that they hadn't seen the item and didn't offer to look (even though we knew where it would be). When we called again a couple weeks later, after the managed checked... More

We were local residents in the process of moving out of state. We had to find a motel to stay in for a week after we put our house on the market because I had to attend a wedding the day before our move. We went by the Hillside Inn about a month before we needed the room to make... More

This is our second visit to the Hillside Inn and we won't stay anywhere else. The owners are caring and considerate. They know the area and gave great directions. The inn has a lovely pool and the restaurant offered prompt, tasty meals at a reasonable price. It's very kid-friendly and yet, very quiet and private. There's a Safeway grocery store... More

I am a Santa Rosa local, and recently sent my parents, a renowned professor and my mom, recently having undergone open heart surgery, plus their show-bred collie (pets are allowed at the hotel) to the Hillside Inn as our home was undergoing major renovation. When they arrived at the hotel on Saturday night, the manager noticed the pet, and forcibly... More

First, we reserved a 'suite' based on the website floorplan description which portrays a kitchen in the suite. Once in our room, we found no kitchen. Upon inquiry, the owner proceeded to yell at me telling me that I needed to REQUEST a kitchen (even though they only advertise suites with kitchen's in them) and mid-conversation handed the phone to...

We stayed five nights, and found the room to be spacious with a mini kitchen. The double beds were comfortable. Everything in the room, including the bath, was very clean. The grounds were well maintained, and the pool was nice, although the water temperature was a bit cool for our Floridian tastes! Would not hesitate to stay there again.

We put on a dog show every year in Santa Rosa & generally book all our rooms at the Flamingo Hotel. We decided to try a few rooms at the Hillside Inn. What a terrible expierence! The owner was very rude & not helpful at all. We will never send anyone to this place again.

I just had the worst experience possible at a hotel. Was yelled at by the manager on duty without any explantion. Was told to calm down (while he was yelling) just asking what the issue was. Said to come to the office, while on the way to the office was told "You're outta here" atleast 5 times. The amount of... More
