My wife and I spent 4 days in the Hillside Inn in beautiful downtown Madison, Indiana. The rooms were spacious and the views awesome. We definitely plan to spend more time in the Madison area. Hopefully we will get that chance soon. Our rooms was readily available and my sister had a similar experience. Rooms were very clean.

I had stayed here several times over the past four years. Beautiful view. I reserved my room for me, my son, & our 13# beagle, for my only daughter's wedding. Hillside is "pet friendly" and charged a pet fee. I paid $404 on arrival for our three night stay. Our dog rarely barks, but did bark when my daughter came... More

Overlooking the Ohio River and the town of Madison while sitting on our private balcony was great. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Quite relaxing! We will be back.

Second time to stay here in recent months. The Suite on the 3rd floor is a great place to enjoy the riverfront of Madison. Whirlpool, fireplace, huge balcony, what's not to like. We hope to get back soon. Will be there for next years Derby, enjoy

This hotel is in a great location overlooking historic Madison. It is very clean, older but updated very well with excellent furnishings and comforts. At every turn there were nice touches that made us feel welcome and valued, the least of which were real glasses (not plastic) and coffee mugs. The beds are great and the staff is awesome. We...

I love the location high on a hill overlooking the town below. Having a private balcony overlooking the town and the river was awesome, especially at night. Even though the weather was chilly, it was so relaxing to sit at the table on the balcony and enjoy the lights below. We also enjoyed watching 3 deer graze on the lawn... More

I enjoyed my stay here. The beds are very comfortable. The soaps,Qtips, and cotton balls are a nice touch. The breakfast was good. The view nice. And the service was great.I really like the fact that they are American owned. This place needs a little updating, but it is not at all dumpy. Mainly the TVs, (they are older) The... More

This lovely older hotel on a hill in Madison gives a beautiful view of the river. The rooms are clean and spacious with balconies to sit on and enjoy the view. While I was staying some deer came to feed on the grass beside the hotel in peace and safety, it was delightful to watch them. It is an easy... More

We spent Christmas Eve at Hillside Inn. (And were the only ones at the motel.) As has been noted before the views of Madison and the Ohio are extraordinary. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable however could use some updating.

An old hotel but rooms very nice, we went to Madison for the Christmas festivities and to visit several wineries. The main problem we encountered was, weather wise it was a nasty weekend with rain, sleet, and snow and the Hotel personnel had assured us, that they keep the steep drive plowed and clean. Several of our cars got stuck... More
