As we were traveling on a budget and with pets and needed to stay for a couple of nights in Saint John we were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay. The Hillside Motel fit our requirements and we were exceedingly satisfied with the service Mr. Kant provided to us. Although the rooms are dated, as had been mentioned...

We stayed one night at this establishment and we had a different experience than the other reviewers. Yes, the Manager was friendly and helpful but I expect more than that. Unlike others, we had NO Wi-Fi reception at all in our room, no matter what we tried. When I spoke to the Manager he told me I could use my...

I recently stayed at the Hillside Hotel with a group. There were 10 of us. Although the decor is a bit dated, the rooms were clean, the price was right and the owners were extremely accommodating. We were all on motorcycles and sometimes we find that the stereotype follows us but not so at this motel. They were very welcoming,...

I used the previous reviews to book my stay and found the motel to be as described. The room was clean. Yes, the place needs a lot work, but it was convenient and reasonable. There were a microwave, fridge, and stoneware coffee cups in the room. I enjoyed the beautiful flowers planted on the grounds and a view of the...

The room was extremely clean and comfortable. Mr. Kant went out of his way to get us to a good restaurant. He even put on decaf coffe in the morning. Highly recommend this motel. It was located near restaurants and close to major highways and gas stations

Old but well kept up. Fast WIFI and plenty of hot water. Microwave and fridge in the room. Five minute easy drive to the DIgby Ferry. Check out the park just up the street for a view of Reversing Falls.

We just returned from a trip to New Brunswick and PEI. We stopped in St. John for a night and stayed at the Hillside Motel. It was very pleasant and clean. Kant was very kind and helpful. The hotel was a ten minute drive to the city center and Kant recommended a very good, very cheap place for breakfast right...

This place is old, but clean and very accomodating. People who can't handle old, and you know who you are, should go elsewhere. We did laundry, commuted back and forth to the City Centre, and visited the Reversing Falls multiple times (a must). We even slept with the windows open. It's that secure. We even came back on our return...

My wife and I are in the midst of a 1,200 mile bike ride, and we wanted a fairly priced, clean motel. Hillside fits the ticket perfectly. Kant (the owner) was most helpful not just when we checked in, but also'when we needed to call a bike shop and make reservations for the Nova Scotia ferry (our cell phones do...
