Spent two nights in this quaint hotel. Friendly, helpful staff and terrific location. Rooms were quiet, clean, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the balcony overlooking the river and city lights. Great place for a girl's shopping trip. Breakfast was adequate and generous.

A friend & I took an over night trip to Madison, Indiana to see what there was to see since we had heard it was a nice little town. We had reservations at the Hillside Inn & we were pleased with the accommodations. It's obviously an old establishment, but it's still a pleasant place to hang your hat. The staff... More

Stayed there on 6/23/15 a last minute decision. They showed us the room prior to making the decision to book. One look is all we needed. Very clean, nicely appointed, bathroom good size, balcony overlooking the city provided a wonderful sunset and city lights at night. Will definitely stay again if in the area. Staff very helpful and nice.

My wife (49) and I (54) stayed the evening of Monday, 6/8, in a king bed river/city view room on the 2nd floor (Room 204). First of all, be aware that king bed rooms are only on the 1st and 2nd floors. If you want a 3rd (top) floor room, you'll have to get a queen bed. We didn't realize... More

We've stayed at Hillside several times and it's been wonderful every time. Pleasant staff, clean rooms and beautiful views. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the Ohio River. We love it and will be staying again soon!

We thought this hotel was OK, but we were a bit disappointed during our recent stay. The elevator was not working and our tub did not drain. Breakfast was OK, but I have had better. All of the employees were fantastic.

This was our third visit to Madison, IN for the annual River Roots Music & Arts Festival. Each year, we make sure we stay at the Hillside Inn.

Love the charming quietness of this hotel. Great view of the Ohio river and walking distance to many great restaurants. The price is also very good and great people to make your stay enjoyable. Great little breakfast room with plenty of choices.

My wife and I and my mother-in-law stayed here for one night returning from the Gulf Coast to Michigan in late April. I had checked in and then was told that we were on the third (top) floor, as the heat wasn't on and heat rises, so we should be all right. We should have been told of this before... More
