Very accommodating staff! Clean linens, comfortable beds. Our party of 4 needed two rooms with two beds each; one of us could not handle stairs. We were given one "upgraded" room (#5 I think), and No. 2, which was across the small parking lot and in the basement of a house. The 2xqueen bed room was spacious, and had a... More

Stayed at this motel while traveling to see family and was happy with my stay. Bed was comfy, staff was fantastic and helpful. I asked for more towels and was given them without a question where as other places charged me for extras, loved that they had dishes available so no paper plates were needed, Beautiful view of the Bay...

We booked this place due to its low price and were pleasantly surprised by how great it was. Clean room, comfortable bed and friendly owner. Best sleep we had in a week of driving across the continent. Don't let the exterior fool you. Fantastic motel.

This hotel does not look like much from the outside, but I was pleasantly surprised as the room was very clean and comfortable. I slept better here than anywhere else on our vacation, even though we stayed at more expensive places on other nights. The view of the Bay of Fundy was beautiful, although you have to request a room... More

Stayed at the Hillside Motel while passing through to go to Nova Scotia. We were put in room 2. Room was disgusting and after driving for hours decided we would try to make the best of it. Had a bad dirty odor, washroom smelled of urine. There was an electrical outlet right next to the tub and a light right... More

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....

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.
