4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The view from here is spectacular, and it’s good to have windows on both sides as there is no AC. The room was somewhat dated and shabby but it seemed clean and comfortable and we were pleased to find a small kitchenette with crockery and cutlery as well as fridge and microwave there was a coffee maker, kettle and toaster....

We were pleased with our experience at this hotel. We showed up super late at night and the owner was friendly and super accommodating! He even upgraded our room to a king size!!! The bed was the most comfortable bed we had on our whole trip!!! We slept so well - it was a huge bed! Everything was clean and... More

Stayed during vacation with wife and two boys when passing through St. John. Of the 8 different places during our Maritime trip, this was the most memorable (in a good way!). The proprietor is a sincere and honest man. The motel is dated, but is highly functional - clean rooms, comfy beds, safe parking, excellent wifi. The layout includes a... More

I always stay here when traveling back to Nova Scotia to get the ferry in Saint John. It is old fashioned Mom and Pop place with clean, comfortable rooms. Owners are friendly and helpful. Cost is reasonable. This time I had room #7, a small room on the upper level in the back. Quite nice.

Left Thursday night at 2 am from Toronto, landed in Saint Johns at 7:30 pm. Roo. Was priced well. Great room size, new mattresses, friendly staff. No real complaints, was exactly what we hoped it would be. Overall had a great little big town experience.

This is a nice little family run motel that is perfect for anyone that is going to be working at either the Point Lepreau power plant, or the nearby industries. The motel does offer rooms with kitchen facilities. Access to the New Brunswick Route 1 highway is just a few blocks away, and the West side of town location makes... More

We always stay here when traveling through Saint John on way to or from ferry. It is clean, old time funky, and comfortable at a reasonable price. Has wifi, tv, etc. Steep entrance. There are no good restaurants in the area but lots of the usual fast-food places are near by. Friendly and helpful owners.

Stayed at this motel in a nice cozy 3 bedroom suite with my family while on a vacation. Very hospitable and close to down town. Would definitely stay there again. Good views overlooking the city and could see the ports from our room.

Stayed here on business on a weeknight in Oct 2015. The place is old - so old it is uncleanably dirty. The crappy plastic wallpaper is peeling, the heaters are falling off the wall, the bathtub tile grout is black in many places (mold?) and is falling out. Funny, because there's new bright white caulking in the corners yet they... More

We always stay at the Hillside whenever we're travelling through St. John.If your looking for an inexpensive,quiet/clean room with no fancy frills then this is the place to stay.What a view from the room/balcony & very close to all amenities without the traffic.The owner is super friendly & well informed about St.John.
