We stayed at this hotel while visiting family close by. We could not have been happier! The service was everything one could want–hands-on, attentive, and friendly. Our room was extremely pleasant and well-arranged, and we loved having a refrigerator. All parts of the hotel were spotlessly fresh and clean. And, we loved Hillsborough! We look forward to returning.

.. but not by much. Room was outdated but spacious. Bed was hard but pillow selection was nice. Room and bathroom were clean. Staff was friendly. Hot breakfast was nice. No microwave in room. I wouldn't pay what they ask for the room but I got it for about 1/2 price so wasn't too disappointed.

Stayed 3/16. Hotel is just off the interstate but a bit hard to find. It is on a hill behind McDonalds and out of sight from the road. Only a small sign indicates hotel road and it is far enough up the hill that you may question if you are on the right trail. Once there, you'll find plenty of... More

This was a nice small hotel that is a great option for a break from interstate driving. The room was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was standard HI- not great (crispy biscuits, weird sausage, frozen cinnamon rolls and ultra cheap awful pastries) but I ate it anyway!

I stayed at this hotel during all the snow delays in Mid-February. The hotel staff went out of their way to get extra food and amenities while everybody was snowed in. The Management Staff is extremely friendly and will go above and beyond to ensure each guest feels welcome and that they are truly at a home away from home.... More

I had to get off the road (due to inclement weather) and stay at this hotel unexpectedly. I only chose the hotel because of the hotel sign I saw off the Interstate. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and appealing. As a courtesy, pizza was ordered in the evening for those who could not... More

The staff was great and so helpful. Our family felt comfortable sitting in the lounge area all throughout the day and night. Some of the rooms need some updating but very clean. We would stay here again!

We were recently in Hillsborough for a swim meet and my entire family stayed at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful day and night. The hotel is tuck up off the main road but is close to adorable historic Hillsborough. The price was also better than many similar hotels in the area.
