Loved my stay and the food. Great views, awesome people. Everything I expected. Beds were very comfortable, and the Inn is close enough to walk to quite a few local attractions. Would love to be there for the Regatta some time.

I guess I was expecting a little more from the hotel based on the reviews. It was not terrible. There were no major issues. I expected a little more. Here are a few of the challenges First, the walls seemed thin. The room above must have been being remodeled as it sounded like furniture was being moved for a long...

The reason to stay at this hotel is the view! You can sit on the balcony and enjoy looking over the town and the bridge, and it's very pleasant. The hotel is okay - nothing special, but adequate. The place is clean and the staff friendly. The breakfast was the standard motel fare. We couldn't leave the balcony door open...

We rented the King Suite at the Hillside Inn 2/22-2/24/2016. The room was fabulous. Our view from the balcony could not have been better! We could see downtown historic Madison, the bridge into Kentucky and barges on the river. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The room included a fireplace and heart shaped whirlpool, both awesome! Best of all we...

We arrived 24 hours later than anticipated due to travel/weather snafus, but were warmly received and our advance reservation was still waiting for us. Great views of downtown Madison, the Ohio River/Bridge, and Kentucky hills beyond. The room was very comfortable (fantastic beds!), quiet, and with all amenities as advertised, including that very welcome in-room coffee maker and plenty of...

Yes, the place is older. But it is well priced, clean, and the staff was amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The breakfast was very nice. It is a great location. We will be sure to stay here the next time we are in town visiting family.

I used to go to Madison every summer to stay with my Grandmother and have never stayed anywhere other than Clifty Falls. It's been over 10 years since I've been there, but I remembered this hotel as soon as I saw the sign on Tripadvisor and knew I had to try it out. It has a great view of the...

Did not have high expectations staying here and those expectations were generally met. Its an older property that is a bit warn, but clean. I had issues with the key card not working, but the front desk was helpful.

Perhaps I should have paid closer attention to the specifics of the room before I booked. My low rating was more from the disappointment factor...as I don't book rooms often. I remembered the first time...hot tub, balcony, nice television, good size room...but this time I failed to realize that I was booking an economy room, which I didn't even know...
