“Pleasantly surprised. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We needed to find somewhere to stay and read the reviews. So we took a plunge with an older looking motel. Facilities are bare but really functional and were clean. In wall air conditioner was not as noisy as most others as well. There were quite a few guests and it wasn't the rowdy and walls were pretty insulated. We have also forgotten how convenient it is to park your car right in front of your room than to lug stuff from your car to the room in bigger establishments. Our beds were clean and comfortable though we would have preferred more "fitting" sheets that wouldn't come off at the sides as we turn in bed.

Stayed June 2014

First of all Id like to point out that im not usually a "motel" minded vacationer, but my mother Linda is so therefore she is the BOSS of me. LOL....It was a great choice though and I would now be open minded to Motels but whenever I stay in Kingston, the HILLTOP MOTEL will be my #1 choice. The two people running it, Jimmy and Brenda are just amazing people...so nice and professional, courteous and just got us everything we needed in a very timely manner....I mean within minutes...We met the owners son as well Ray and he was just as nice as his employees along with the cleaning lady who just made our room nice every day. We went without nothing here. The one on one interaction was what made this motel stand out. The front gardens were just set up so beautfully you knew it was going to be a well maintained place to stay. I already miss being there cause I miss my new found friends. Thanks for a great stay Jim, Brenda and Ray as its people like you guys that make it a home a way from home with your personal touches. Ill be back in June or July for sure so you better be waiting for Momma's, Shelley and Tracey....

Room Tip: I like staying at the back of the Motel near the lawn/tree area where the bbq is as it was away from...

I have stayed at this property a number of times over the years. The new owners are making great strides in improving it. Real pillows, new bed linens, new batroom sinks, larger soaps, new flat screen TVs. They still provide microwave and refrigerator, but bring your own cups. My bed could have been more comfortable. Staff is friendly. Only regret is I didn't have time to try out the outdoor hammocks, picnic tables and grills. Maybe next time.

This motel is very good value for basic accommodation. Don't expect frills like coffee makers, hair dryers, or continental breakfast, but if you don't want or need those things, why pay more? Our room did have a microwave and a fridge, and the latter in particular was more important to us than any of the other possible extras. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable, the wi-fi worked fine, and we were not troubled by any noise. The location is also convenient, with groceries and other shopping options nearby if needed, and the staff in the office were friendly and helpful.

This motel is owned and operated by a family who were so friendly and willing to help in any way to make our stay enjoyable,friendly staff. Very clean room, newly renovated rooms beds were comfortable. I was amazed for a small place how well it is run and how clean the rooms are. The price was great compared to other motels we looked at in the area.
BBQ facilities was great. Service was excellent.
