“What a wonderful get-away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

We were pleasantly surprised with the Hill House Inn! We did not have reservations but were able to get a nice room anyway. From the moment we walked in, we loved it. The place was so charming and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Our room was really cute and clean and the breakfast was great. The staff helped us find a restaurant in town for dinner that would be good for kids, and they were happy to tell us about the history of the place, the TV series that was filmed there, and take pictures of our family in front of the inn. The other guests were really nice, too. I would highly recomment this place. I read the other reviews and we had none of the problems some people listed. The entire experience was flawless and allowed us to truly enjoy ourselves. We really felt at home, away from home. Thanks for a wonderful stay, and thanks to your super friendly staff for treating us so nicely! We can't wait to come back and stay with you again!!!!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hill House Inn. The staff was nice and helpful. We loved our room, patio and the view of the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable with lots of sitting room. We have a 3 year old and 5 year old, and they enjoyed their stay too :) They loved the waffles! Very family/kid friendly. The hotel is located within walking distance to the village. I would stay again and recommend the Hill House to others.
