My boyfriend and I had an amazing time here. I have never seen a cleaner hotel bathtub. Loved the private balcony. Very clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Can't wait to go back. Soon! We spent the next day at clifty falls hiking and looking at waterfalls. Great weekend trip!

First of all, do your self a favor and pay a little extra for a room with a view of the river & historic downtown Madison! I didn't, and really wished I had. My room (#101) looked out at the hillside & driveway so I had to keep the curtain drawn for privacy. Also, it was right by the lobby... More

Found this hotel in Tripadvisor and chose to stay here after reading reviews of and checking prices for several hotels in Madison. It is on a hillside visible throughout Madison, with a steep road running from the highway below to the parking area. This is not a new hotel, but it is nicely updated, with lobby and room being and... More

the place was dated but clean. The service was clean and the beds comfortable. The included breakfast was your standard fare. There were great views from my room (facing the river). The hotel has an interesting history. The grounds outside the hotel need some updating as they have some old broken concrete steps leading up the hillside. The Hotel is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hillside Inn on our first trip to Madison, Indiana. We stayed in a suite on the third floor with a wonderful view of the river. The Jacuzzi and fireplace were both fabulous! There was also a mini-fridge and microwave. The shower was nice and the bathroom had heated tile floors. The staff was... More

I have stayed at the Hillside Inn several times while looking for a home in Madison. I found the rooms to be clean and well maintained, and the staff to be courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable about Madison and its surroundings. Will stay there again. The only drawback is a skimpy breakfast..

Stayed there on a weekend hunting trip, the hillside is , I believe, the oldest inn in Madison..... Right on river and as name suggests, on a hillside....overlooks Ohio river and downtown Madison. The facility itself has held up well over the years, clean, rooms could use a little freshening up. But overall they were very clean. They offer continental... More

Booked at the last minute for a weekend excursion due to good fall weather reports. I was wary due to some reviews critical of cleanliness. But we wanted to stay in the historic district rather than the newer properties up on the highway. Granted, the exterior appearance isn't much and the hotel is definitely older. But our room was exceptionally... More

I found Hillside Inn to be better than expected after reading some negative reviews. The whole experience was unexpected as we were traveling to a funeral and needed last minute accommodations. The view was gorgeous and a real surprise, since we drove in in the dark. The bathrooms were clean, well stocked and the beds were so comfy! I am... More
