My family rented three rooms for a weekend getaway during the Nights Before Christmas Tour. The rooms were nicely furnished and clean, and the staff was very hospitable. All the rooms had balconies overlooking Madison and the Ohio River, offering a beautiful view. The breakfast consisted of typical hot and cold options. I would definitely stay here again.

I did a lot of research looking for a nice place to stay at a reasonable price, and Hillside didn't disappoint. It doesn't have quite all the amenities as a newer hotel would, but it makes up for it with a lot of... More

Super nice old hotel that looks like it was built maybe around the 1940's (just a guess) but the inside is all modern and new. Super super nice place to stay and the staff is super friendly. The driveway might be a little slick in bad weather as it is not called the hillside inn for nothing. great view of... More

My wife and I stayed here over a weekend to enjoy the town. The room was large with a lovely view from the balcony. The chairs on the balcony were very comfortable as was the bed. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. I really could not have asked for more.

This is a fun place to spend a night or two. It's an old motel with a steep driveway, but I was able to get my Penske truck up the hill without any trouble. The rooms facing the city have wonderful views of Madison and the Ohio River. The bed and furniture in my room looked new, so I have... More

Room was nice and clean. Spacious balcony. Breakfast was usual continental fare. Driveway is scary narrow and if you met another car going the other way on it, you're kind of trapped. Staff was very friendly.
