  • Couple

    Very friendly staff. Willing to help and anticipate needs. Was pleased to get free upgrade. Loved the full size fridge and kitchen .

    This is a budget hotel so I did not expect superior facilities. The room was adequate and spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 cats. Our needs for an overnight met.

  • Single

    The Hillside Motel was the best deal I had on my 8 day Canadian vacation. It was $20 less than other places I stayed and the bed was the most comfortable one I had after staying in more expensive hotels and B&B'S. The room was clean and had a stove, refrigerator, and microwave which was an extra convenience for people staying multiple days. There was a beautiful view of the valley out my back window. The owner was very friendly and greeted me by name when I arrived. Since I was alone he gave me a room near the office on the first floor which I thought was very nice. He gave me a map and told me where the nearest restaurants were right down the street. It was a great place to stay outside of the downtown section and parking was free. I was extremely impressed and would recommend the Hillside to anyone going to St. John. I almost didn't stay here after reading some posts, but I'm glad I did because I was very satisfied and would go there again if I came back to St. John.

  • Older travelers

    The owner is very friendly and assisted in every way possible. The motel is well maintained, and for the dollar was an excellent stay.

  • Group of friends

    Lokesh the manager made us very welcome and comfortable. The rooms were large enough and we also had wifi available. The location was also handy to St John's reversing falls.

  • Older travelers

    This is a small basic motel, comfortable for a night's rest. The owner was exceptionally friendly and made every effort to make sure we enjoyed out brief stay, which we did.

    For the price we didn't expect any amenities and we weren't disappointed.

  • Group of friends

    The owner and his family were very helpful. Suggested a beautiful drive to see the colors changing and countryside.

  • Single

    Friendly, very clean, budget-friendly, great location for both city and highway. Wi-fi, 24 hour service and kitchen in room. Met all my needs. Will stay again and definitely recommend. Thank you.


  • Older travelers

    The motel was very helpfully in directions to the reverse falls and eating establishments. Also, impressed how the manager went out of his way to accommodate our special needs.

  • Older travelers

    Convenience, very nice people.

    Too expensive for facility. Decor out of the 40's. TV too old and out of focus.

  • Group of friends

    Very 1950s- 60s decor that is so dated it's almost in style again. It could use a bit of improvement but everything worked and our room was comfortable and quiet. Some rooms have a view toward the ocean. There was a kitchenette in the room and a free continental breakfast in the small office room.

    I bit shop worn.

  • Group of friends

    Quaint character, wonderful service from the staff, very comfortable bed, basic but clean rooms, good free brekkie in the morning, very good value for money and good location

  • Single

    A cheap place to stay with hosts who were friendly and eager to please. This was quite convenient to the local area as well as shops but was reasonably quiet.

    It's an old property but for the price you can't really complain. The driveway is steep as one other reviewer noted, but it's not impossible.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly and accommodating owner/manager. It was a quiet location yet a short drive to St. John's center and Reverse Falls.

    Dated and some facilities in need of replacement or repair.

  • Older travelers

    This small privately run motel was situated perfectly for us within a short drive of all amenities. The place is obvously older but, it was clean and the staff friendly and helpful in all ways.

  • Group of friends

    The staff was the best. They went above all to make sure we were happy and comfortable
