“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We arrived at the Hillside Motel on our motorcycles on the way to Atlanticade 2013 held at PEI. Upon our arrival Kant came out of the office and greeted us by saying "John, welcome home" Then he gave us all the information we could ask for about places to eat and shop. The facility is somewhat dated but very clean and comfortable. As Kant showed us to our room he stopped to get us hand towels to use to wipe the dew from our bikes in the morning, just incredible thoughtfulness. Their morning breakfast is unbeatable, fresh food cooked well and reasonably priced. We stayed again on our way back from Atlanticade, and will only stay with Kant and his wonderful family from now on. I read the other reviews here and agree with them. They work very hard to make your stay enjoyable. Thank you Kant, Rakesh, and Bobby.

On my way to PEI, I stopped in St. John and stayed here for 2 nights. The motel is very clean and kept very nicely by the owners. I also found them to be very helpful for information about what to do and how to get around. The motel is very good value for the money and you should not hesitate to stay here. And the rate is great.

Kant and Rakesh, the owners of this motel, are very kind and helpful. Kant brought out his tool kit to try to fix my helmet's face shield. Rakesh cooked a good breakfast priced under $6. The room was clean and comfortable and reasonably priced at $69. I'd recommend Hillcrest Motel!

It's not the nicest place in the world, but for the price, hey it works. The room was clean, everything was in working order. The bed was fine. The owners were helpful. If you're looking to travel cheaply, as I was, this is the place for you.

Great place if all you need is a bed for the night. Close to town. Clean. Safe. And a very nice, friendly owner. The carpet in our room was torn and covered up with a throw rug. The tile in the shower is ready to fall out (the grout was gone long ago) the electric flikers when you plug in your cell phone chager. No air conditoning. A busy highway out back ( we did not hear a thing all night) and bright porch lites that you can not turn off shine through the curtains. The wifi works best in the parking lot but not so well in the room. A hook in the bathroom would be nice to hang stuff on. A nice bonus is parking right out front of your room, so all your stuff is close by. They now serve breakfast next door (we did not go) for $2.99. The room rate is a
good price, and the nice family make up for some things but sooner or later this place is gonna need some help.

I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-June after driving to a wedding in Connecticut . . . The room was great for me, not super-deluxe but that is half the fun of travelling isn't it? . . . "Life is like a box of chocolates, ya never know which one you're gonna get"! . . . The view was good and could sometimes see the HUGE ferry-boat leaving for Digby, Nova Scotia in the distance from the rear of room . . . I did the 2 museums in town which are a 'must-see' . . . They have a fish'n'chip shop across from the Moosehead Breweries and man-oh-man was it yummy good! . . . The owner's wife had just opened a breakfast restaurant next-door to the motel and it was an absolutely fantastic feast and very reasonable!!!!!!!!! . . . Will definitely be back sometime! . . .

Room Tip: All of the rooms have the same rear-view overlooking the Bay of Fundy so it makes no difference whic...
