We had a reservation at the Hillside Inn for August 25th for one night, thank god! We entered the parking lot near the Lobby and heard what sounded like a business alarm going off. So we entered the Lobby and found no one at the front desk. All of a sudden the owner which I learned a bit later came flying into the lobby cussing and tossed his cell phone against the wall. We looked at each other in shear shock. He was a bit out of control. I asked are you the owner and his response was yes!He needs to take an Anger Management class NOW before he does something violent! WOW! We didn't know weather to stay or look for another place. Being there was a marathon going on in town we decided to stay. The property was well maintained but we entered the room it look like something from the 70's or 80's. Just a little updating could bring this guy a lot more business. Toss the tired bedspreads and use a duvet, Get those old dated pictures off the wall and spring for a wall mounted flat screen TV. It wouldn't cost much. I believe motel 6 or one of the lower end motels are a bit more modern. It's 2012 get with the program!
