The television series "Bewitched" ran from 1964 to 1972. I tell you this because the Hillside Inn will make you think that you've time warped back to 1964. You'll be looking over your shoulder to see if Elizabeth Montgomery and the rest of the Bewitched cast have been resurrected and are living large at the Hillside Inn. This place is retro, groovy, and just the ticket for a pleasant inexpensive stay ($74 plus tax for a king room with 1960s original kitchenette) in Santa Rosa.
I stayed the evening of August 2, 2012 in room 207. Very clean, room 207 featured everything I needed, including original appliances from the 1960s. 25 inch tv, lots of dressers, king bed with firm (but comfy) mattress, and basic washroom (tub with shower). Outside, the pool area is very nice and well maintained, and there is plenty of parking. On site restaurant open 7 am to 2 pm daily, or cross the street and go to the IHOP. I have nothing bad to say about the Hillside Inn.
Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is terrible and 10 is excellent, I give the Hillside an 8. It is not the Waldorf, but for the price, you get excellent value and a neat motel experience.
