I have seen this hotel before when crossing the Ohio River from Kentucky going into Indiana. Now after staying there, I have found the hotel for me when visiting Madison, IN. The view of the river was great, there was a balcony with a small table and two chairs for us to use.

I give it a C+ to B-, kind of a mixed bag. First the positives, our room(and bathroom) very extremely clean. Lighting in the bathroom outstanding, and water pressure in shower was great. Good selection of channels on TV, and did not hear any other guests in hallways or room(not a lot of business on a Thurs. night). If you...

We stopped here last night (9-23) to stay. The rate was a little high even with a AAA discount. We were given a corner room that had a lot to be desire. The TV was way in the corner quite a ways from the bed. The carpet was old and torn at the bathroom door. The bed was hard as...

Their were two couples that stayed here September 15th 2015. Very clean comfortable rooms. Both had balcony views which was very nice. Staff was friendly & eager to make our stay as satisfying as possible. Breakfast was excellent with very clean & organized dining area. Would definitely re-visit.

We had lived in the area years ago and I finally had a trip back where I required an overnight stay. The Hillside Inn is situated on a nice hill overlooking the Ohio R. The suite in which I stayed was clean and quite comfortable. The breakfast was satisfactory but I usually only have roll and coffee. The view from...

First the highlights, it was clean (as clean as a hotel this old and dated could be) and the staff, Julie at the front desk, was exceptional and the bed was comfy. I opted for this place over another in town based on my own decor choices and that the shuttle to and from the reception location was a stop....

Spent two nights in this quaint hotel. Friendly, helpful staff and terrific location. Rooms were quiet, clean, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the balcony overlooking the river and city lights. Great place for a girl's shopping trip. Breakfast was adequate and generous.

A friend & I took an over night trip to Madison, Indiana to see what there was to see since we had heard it was a nice little town. We had reservations at the Hillside Inn & we were pleased with the accommodations. It's obviously an old establishment, but it's still a pleasant place to hang your hat. The staff...

Stayed there on 6/23/15 a last minute decision. They showed us the room prior to making the decision to book. One look is all we needed. Very clean, nicely appointed, bathroom good size, balcony overlooking the city provided a wonderful sunset and city lights at night. Will definitely stay again if in the area. Staff very helpful and nice.
