Yes, the place is older. But it is well priced, clean, and the staff was amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The breakfast was very nice. It is a great location. We will be sure to stay here the next time we are in town visiting family.

I used to go to Madison every summer to stay with my Grandmother and have never stayed anywhere other than Clifty Falls. It's been over 10 years since I've been there, but I remembered this hotel as soon as I saw the sign on Tripadvisor and knew I had to try it out. It has a great view of the... More

Did not have high expectations staying here and those expectations were generally met. Its an older property that is a bit warn, but clean. I had issues with the key card not working, but the front desk was helpful.

Perhaps I should have paid closer attention to the specifics of the room before I booked. My low rating was more from the disappointment factor...as I don't book rooms often. I remembered the first time...hot tub, balcony, nice television, good size room...but this time I failed to realize that I was booking an economy room, which I didn't even know... More

I have seen this hotel before when crossing the Ohio River from Kentucky going into Indiana. Now after staying there, I have found the hotel for me when visiting Madison, IN. The view of the river was great, there was a balcony with a small table and two chairs for us to use.

I give it a C+ to B-, kind of a mixed bag. First the positives, our room(and bathroom) very extremely clean. Lighting in the bathroom outstanding, and water pressure in shower was great. Good selection of channels on TV, and did not hear any other guests in hallways or room(not a lot of business on a Thurs. night). If you... More

We stopped here last night (9-23) to stay. The rate was a little high even with a AAA discount. We were given a corner room that had a lot to be desire. The TV was way in the corner quite a ways from the bed. The carpet was old and torn at the bathroom door. The bed was hard as... More

Their were two couples that stayed here September 15th 2015. Very clean comfortable rooms. Both had balcony views which was very nice. Staff was friendly & eager to make our stay as satisfying as possible. Breakfast was excellent with very clean & organized dining area. Would definitely re-visit.

We had lived in the area years ago and I finally had a trip back where I required an overnight stay. The Hillside Inn is situated on a nice hill overlooking the Ohio R. The suite in which I stayed was clean and quite comfortable. The breakfast was satisfactory but I usually only have roll and coffee. The view from... More
