I stayed there for a few weeks and the pool was never clean, the Wi-Fi was terrible, the owner Bob was not very nice. Literally, you would say hi to this man and he would act like he did not hear it or did not see you. I stayed there due to a job and I was moving into an... More

WATCH OUT FOR THIS PLACE IF YOU BOOK IN ADVANCE. Not only are the owners rude and gruff they are RIP-OFFS. Here's our story. Booked this place 3 months in advance. We offer to give them our credit card. No, they would not take it. We thought it was strange but what the heck we heard this place is old... More

For medical reasons a place to stay with kitchen options was needed and air bnb was impossible due to long term needs. The first impression of room 112 was, well, the worst room I've rented. Like stepping into 1968, musty, dark and the worst smoked-in room ever. My nose just wouldn't get used to it . I knew I was... More

The management was not very pleasent to deal with. Their beds are old. The rooms are outdated. The highway noise is profound. If I were you, I'd recommend another location. The management charged me for three nights when I reserved it for only two. They refused to reverse the one night even when I provided them with my flight information.

The Hillside Inn is notable for its cleanliness and nice atmosphere and reasonable price. It is accessible to many restaurants, near many wineries and the owner, Bob, was a very fine host. The Inn is also dog friendly.

Management is nice and nestled in the redwood trees, it's not 5 star but compared to the prices of hotels it serves the purpose, it's decant and clean.has pool area and great restaurants, tomatina, boudin , Jafferys hillside cafe, crepvine, yetti Himalayan resturant and walking distant to flamingo hotel, close to all wineries.
