3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

But did not love their changing our room rate after we checked in. Seems a new inexperienced employee had quoted us the wrong rate for two of the nights we were staying and they upped the rate by about $40 per night for those nights! Not very professional in my opinion. We did not accept the first room that was... More

Hubby and I were in Madison for our 27th anniversary getaway. We upgraded to a king room with Jacuzzi on the 2nd floor. We were not disappointed. At check-in we were told that all the rooms were having flat screen TV's installed that week and we had one. The room was spotlessly clean, even in the BR corners. All the... More

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
