We decided to go to Madison at the last minute, and my husband booked us a room at this hotel. It was ok, fairly old and dated but basically clean. The room was ok, clean, but kind of hot. The temperature never really got cool enough, we had to sleep on top of the covers. Breakfast was not very good,...

Went to Madison for a 1 night stay and booked Hillside Inn online because we thought it was a reasonable price and the view would be worth it, The room was nice enough, clean, comfortable bed, fridge with freezer. BUT, they have 4 rooms that face away from the river with no view at all except the drive way and...

I spent 5 weeks in the area for a job in Trimble Co. Kentucky, just across the river and it was a very tough time for hotels. There was a NASCAR race at Kentucky Speedway and the hotel many of us were at decided to quit honoring the weekly rates for business travelers and upped the rate to $315/night with...

The Inn is nothing fancy, but it was clean and reasonably priced. The view from the room was fabulous—this hotel has the best views of the river valley of any hotel in town. And it's only a short (15-20 minute) walk from all the downtown restaurants, bars and other attractions, although the walk back is steep, especially if you've had...

The view of the river was amazing. The people were very nice. The place was a little run down, but clean. The only disappointment was the coffee at breakfast - truly awful. Drive down the street for a good cup. A nice place to stay, overall.

The view from the balcony was amazing! We had breakfast on the balcony with a river view. There was even a ceiling fan on the balcony to add a nice breeze. The rooms are very clean, and the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast choices were plentiful. We will definitely stay here again for a couples get away.

The hillside inn is in a great location in downtown Madison. I stayed here for a week during a business trip so I was able to walk downtown on the few evenings it didn't rain. The hill is a little steep but it's a nice trek. The staff were friendly and the room was adequate. My room had a refrigerator...

Unfortunately, this hotel did not meet my expectations. The manager on duty was put out, as I interrupted her meal when I arrived. The hotel is slightly run down, no problem. However, the sheets in two rooms contained numerous hairs. The manager was unwilling to either have the sheets changed or check a third room. The manager then stated that...

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, and a beautiful view of the town and Ohio River. The price includes a continental breakfast and the hotel is pet friendly! You are walking distance to the town and river front for dining and/or shopping. Definitely worth the stop in your travels.

This is a very clean, QUIET, comfortable boutique hotel overlooking the Ohio River and scenic Madison's main street. The breakfast was decent but not exceptional, but the views from both our room and the breakfast area were stunning. Easy to find (you pretty much can't miss it if you drive through Madison's downtown), but the driveway is STEEP, so be...
