“Huge rooms, mellow atmosphere, it's a lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

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 the smallest rooms were very large and have kitchenettes. Especially pleasing considering the price! The pool is big, and not cold, and there are mature trees, and it's just a pretty place to stay.

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 Rosa.

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.

Room Tip: I usually stay in the back where it's completely quiet. Never stayed out front, so not sure how...

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 enjoy the Charles Shultz Museum and more wineries. Jeffrey's for breakfast was amazing- best banana pancakes and great service.

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 located in the Wine Country, and a curse, somewhat noisy. The Hillside is a tremendous value in a clean and well kempt environment.

Room Tip: For those bothered by road noise, ask for a room on the backside of the inn - much quieter!

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 so can't comment on them. The room was quite large.
