“Good Value, Clean”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I traveled with my cousin and his wife to New Brunswick. It was refreshing to stay at the Hillside Inn after staying in motels in US. Our Hillside suite was less expensive than US. The owner is kind, respectful and helpful. We stayed three nights, traveled to Nova Scotia and made a point to come back to the Hillside Inn for 2 more nights before continuing on our trip. We felt like it was "our home away from home". We were very pleased.

We stayed two nights during the ThanksGiving holliday. If you read recents reviews of this property everything is right... Owners are very accomodating, room is clean, quiet, the bed is very comfortable, we are close to everything... a place to stay in St-John if you are not looking for hotels like Hilton. I thank the hosts for everything...

We stayed here 5 nights, initially planning to stay three. The host, Locash, and his wife were very happy to accomodate and worked hard to please their guests. They were available at all times, and were excellent with directions to sites. Our room was clean and there was a simple continental breakfast.

Our room had a fridge and microwave which was helpful. The TV worked and had lots of channels. The shower was great.

One negative was the Internet from our room was erratic.

We stayed one night at the Hillside Motel on our return from a driving tour to Cape Breton. We arrived late in the afternoon...and hit the road again fairly early the next morning. The Hillside is an older style hotel that is in a non-tourist area of town. The rooms are about standard size--and though the furnishings are dated--everything was clean and functional. Our real measure of success is a clean bathroom with lots of hot water and good water pressure--and our room at the Hillside provided all of these. The owner welcomed us upon our arrival and showed us our room...taking special care to ask if there was anything we needed or any information that he could provide. A nice touch in a small hotel. This is a basic hotel that we feel is a good value and would surely recommend it to those on a budget.

We stayed one night. The owner was extremely friendly and was going out of his way to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible. I had booked the wrong night and showed up to no problems. He even upgraded us to a king size bed for free! Clean rooms and great views!

The motel is older and basic. The small room included a small fridge, older stove and oven and dishes - we didn't use these. We picked up the free, small continental breakfast (packaged oatmeal, cookies, fruit, coffee, tea and milk) at the office and went to our room to eat. The TV was older and could have been clearer at times, but there were lots of channels - all day Olympic coverage. There was no AC but it cooled down at night. There was a limited view of the Bay of Fundy, but you overlooked industrial areas. The room was clean but there was a lot of black in the shower - mold? There is no phone (phone books - yes), hairdryer or facial tissues. Shampoo was limited. Lokish at the desk is very friendly and helpful. It is in a residential area with shopping areas and Irving Park nearby.

Stayed for one night en route from Quebec to Halifax. $75 inc for big room with 2 double beds. Room had kitchenette was basic and a bit dated but very clean and fresh. Room
Was on a corner with views to the sea( over the industrial area) and to the city. Breakfast included but very basic, fruit and porridge. The standout was the helpfully staff, so friendly. Would definitely recommend - budget but no dump!
