This family owned property is a pleasant change from pricey chain hotels in the Santa Rosa area. It's a well-maintained older property with large, clean rooms, pretty landscaping and owners who work hard to provide guests with a good value and a comfortable stay. Many rooms have small kitchen areas; some are full suites with a 2nd bedroom and separate... More

I was so pleasantly surprised by how big our room was! There was only a suite available, so we took it (especially b/c the price for a suite here compared to a normal room elsewhere) and wow, it was big! Two bedrooms, plenty of other space to move around. but I peeked into other rooms at checkout time, and even... More

This cute inn right in Santa Rosa is very affordable and in a great location. The rooms were well kept and have ample room. Nice kitchenette. We left some items after check out and the housekeeper had them all turned in and waiting for us. The front desk service was great. I would stay there anytime I am in Santa... More

I love this place. Easy to book. Large, comfortable, quiet rooms. And very affordable. It's the only place I'll stay when in Santa Rosa.

The Hillside Inn was one of the most affordable accommodations we found in California, and offered the most space. We had high expectations since it was off season, and were very happy with the price, size of the bed, working kitchen, and friendly staff. It was way too cold to try the pool sadly. We stayed an extra night to... More

This was our second stay at The Hillside Inn and it did not disappoint. The room was immaculate and the housekeeper a gem, making for a great experience. Guests should also check out Jeffrey's Hillside for breakfast which has great espresso drinks and generous entrees. The Hillside Inn sits on busy California Highway 12 which is both a blessing, centrally... More

For the past five years my parents stay at the Hillside Inn when they come to visit me and my family. They love the customer service and the price. My daughter loves to stay with them also because they have a mini suite with a kitchen and second bedroom. I highly recommend

The Hillside Inn is one of the least expensive places to stay in Sonoma County. I was visiting family members who live within two miles of this inn. It is not fancy but is clean and welcoming. My only concern is that the heater fan, when it cycled onand off was very noisy. I did not use the kitchen facilities... More

Surely there are better places to stay in Santa Rosa. This was nothing to write home about. My only real complaint was that I could not get the room to warm up.

En route to Washington we spent a cold evening after a long drive, comfortably tucked into our room at the Hillside Inn. The accommodation was clean and quiet; our room was in the back behind the pool area. We were tired from the drive and ready to sleep well, which we did. In the morning my husband went to the...
