My wife and I stayed here as a stop over between Kingston, Ontario and Darnley, PEI on my parents advice. Normally this isn't where I would Haber stayed as I usually like to go to an established hotel chain. Glad I listened. This was an extremely clean motel and have you feeling as of you are at home. I'll definitely... More

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

This place is a dump. Yes, the room was clean and the bed was okay, but the place is still a dump. The room is tight and full of junk...things you would find on the street. Found a small coffee maker under the sink, but no coffee. And no, I won't wash the dishes if I use them

The motel was clean and comfortable. The mattress was very comfortable . The is not one of the name brand hotels but it is half the price. The wifi worked and was free. The owner was very helpful giving directions and advice. Not the Ritz but outstanding for the money

My initial booking was for two nights, but I was so comfortable at Hillside that I found myself, with credit card in hand, walking to Mr. Kant's office, where I said, "Mr. Kant, may I stay another night?" He smiled and extended my booking -- and I did the same thing the next morning, too, for a total here of... More

Bad smell when you walk in, tiles in the bathroom had still white sprinkles from (maybe) shaving cream or toothpaste and mould around the tub. And then I have seen mouse poop on the counter of the "kitchen". Owner offered me a different room, opened up the door under the sink and the same picture even in the tray were... More

Staff was really nice rooms were clean. Parked my motorcycle just outside the room. This made it easy to load and unload. When I arrived it had just stopped raining and I was hungry. Proprietor helped out with some menus. Food was delivered and I was a happy camper. Like I said it's funky and a bit run down but... More

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.
