My husband and I stayed at the Hillside Inn over Labor Day weekend, and really enjoyed the visit! The motel was clean and quiet, and had a pretty view of Madison and the bridge over the Ohio that we enjoyed from our balcony! It was topped off by a very nice complimentary breakfast! We definitely will be going back to... More

I cannot say enough GOOD things about how much I enjoyed this weekend. High on the hill the location overlooking the Ohio River was spectacular! Add the friendly staff (especially Paula) the clean large room, refrigerator, great sleep on a wonderful bed and coffee on my balcony in the morning with that view, well it just doesn't get any better...

Our room was clean and comfortable with a balcony for $89. The view was wonderful and it was relaxing sitting out on the balcony. The bed was comfortable and the room was equipped with a refrigerator. Breakfast was nice with waffles, bacon, sausage, bagels, donuts, juices and coffee. I would definitely stay here again!

We planned an overnight stay in Madison, and based on reviews and price, chose the Hillside Inn. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was only $69 on a Sunday evening. Check-in was quick and courteous The room was large and quiet, and clean. The bed and linens were comfortable. The room included standard cable channels/flatscreen plus mini-fridge, coffeemaker, hair dryer;... More

Clean rooms ,need new pillows, the cleaning staff does not understand English. Breakfast was a joke. Front staff friendly. Another person that was with us took the glasses to the desk since they were not replaced when room was cleaned and the person rinsed out and dries with a dirty towel. The cleaning staff needs a refresher course. Also they... More

The Hillside is not a really fancy hotel, but extremely comfortable. Would love to have seen it when it was in the height of it's glory. It is a extremely comfortable, room very clean. The rooms are quiet and the balcony rooms have an excellent view of the Ohio River and downtown. Very peaceful and relaxing sitting on the balcony... More

We only stayed one night at the Hillside, but we will be back the next time we're in Madison! The room rate was very competitive and offered a spectacular view of the Ohio river! We enjoyed watching the sun set over the town as we sat on our balcony. When we arrived, we were greeted nicely, though there was quite... More

It was a little unsettling when we found the hotel and had to drive up a steep and twisty road on our motorcycle. But it was a nice place to stay. Large room. excellent bed and bedding. Room had a balcony which was lovely. Very clean. Breakfast with normal offerings. Friendly staff. Quiet.

As you may be able to tell by the title...I felt the hotel was....um...well a little outdated. From the lobby to the rooms to parking lot to, well just about everything. If you're not from Madison, you'll not know that the Hillside is an iconic hotel, which has been a staple there for MANY decades.... Pros...IF you get a balcony... More

HILLSIDEINN_10, General Manager at Hillside Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay at the Hillside Inn. We do have accommodations for both river view and non-river-view rooms at our establishment. The non-river view rooms are smaller and less in price than the river view rooms with balconies. It is unfortunate that you had booked a non-river view room yet expecting the river-view... More
