Stayed at the Hillside Inn weekend of April 17-19th. Very clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff with excellent advice on the town. Great view of the town and the river. We'll stay there again without a second thought. Excellent weekend getaway.

Rebuilt in 1970, the place does not appear to have been painted since then. Hallways are dirty with spots worn thru the rugs. Elevator not working. The touted view, for which you're charged extra, is nothing to write home about. You'd have a much better free view from the city-long riverfront park. No proper desk, but a dinette-style table with... More

My fiance and I were visiting Madison for a few days during a small vacation. The hotel was a surprise, I had no idea it was going to be so beautiful. We stayed in a suite on the third floor overlooking the Ohio river. Our room (including the deluxe whirlpool tub!) was as clean as clean could be and the... More

When we get a rare opportunity to visit historic Madison, the Hilltop Inn is where I'd choose to stay every time, whether during the Madison Regatta over Fourth of July weekend or just for a weekend trip to nearby Clifty Falls State Park (recommended destination for park lovers, one of three best in Indiana for natural features and dynamic topography,...

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
