Nice older hotel. So worth the upgrade to the balcony room view is so amazing to look out at the Ohio river. The lights downtown are awsome. The closeness to downtown is great to walk. The staff was helpful and answered questions on where to eat.

Their sign attracted us, but their facility and staff are what will be bringing us back. It felt like a high class hotel, but the price was medium rated facility. Loved the view from the balcony. Bed was superb. Loved the proximity to downtown Madison. The staff were absolutely wonderful -- friendly, made great recommendations for places to eat and...

This was our first stay at the Hillside. We were very happy with the hotel. The drive up is a bit tricky, but manageable. I suppose you should expect a steep drive up to a place named The "Hillside." Our room was very clean. The bedding is top notch. We will be back the next time we visit Madison.

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.

My wife and I recently stayed at Hillside Inn while in Madison celebrating our five year anniversary. 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...

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...
