The photos don't really tell the whole story. I had trouble getting a response from the people after emailing them several times about my booking. finally a friend who lives in Santa Rosa had to go in and book it. I had a suite and kitchenette hoping to be able to self-cater but the kitchen is COMPLETELY BARE!!! I had...

Wonderful stay, as always! I have been visiting Hillside for years. I keep coming back for the quiet, clean rooms and the great service and price. Also, the location is convenient to so many things I want to do in Santa Rosa. I won't stay any where else! We paid the $4.00 dollars to have the stove/oven turned on and...

He ended up telling me that it is impossible to pay for a room over the phone from Idaho. I have never had a problem reserving room in other countries let alone...

The Hillside is a charming, slightly vintage, family owned and run motel. The main "feature" is Jeffrey's Restaurant, THE place to have breakfast/brunch/lunch in Santa Rosa. We had a king room that included a stove, sink & fridge, but no microwave. But, the rates are reasonable, there is plenty of parking, the outdoor pool is clean, and the overall impression...

I stayed there for a few weeks and the pool was never clean, the Wi-Fi was terrible, the owner Bob was not very nice. Literally, you would say hi to this man and he would act like he did not hear it or did not see you. I stayed there due to a job and I was moving into an...
