We had lived in the area years ago and I finally had a trip back where I required an overnight stay. The Hillside Inn is situated on a nice hill overlooking the Ohio R. The suite in which I stayed was clean and quite comfortable. The breakfast was satisfactory but I usually only have roll and coffee. The view from...

First the highlights, it was clean (as clean as a hotel this old and dated could be) and the staff, Julie at the front desk, was exceptional and the bed was comfy. I opted for this place over another in town based on my own decor choices and that the shuttle to and from the reception location was a stop....

Spent two nights in this quaint hotel. Friendly, helpful staff and terrific location. Rooms were quiet, clean, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the balcony overlooking the river and city lights. Great place for a girl's shopping trip. Breakfast was adequate and generous.

A friend & I took an over night trip to Madison, Indiana to see what there was to see since we had heard it was a nice little town. We had reservations at the Hillside Inn & we were pleased with the accommodations. It's obviously an old establishment, but it's still a pleasant place to hang your hat. The staff...

Stayed there on 6/23/15 a last minute decision. They showed us the room prior to making the decision to book. One look is all we needed. Very clean, nicely appointed, bathroom good size, balcony overlooking the city provided a wonderful sunset and city lights at night. Will definitely stay again if in the area. Staff very helpful and nice.

My wife (49) and I (54) stayed the evening of Monday, 6/8, in a king bed river/city view room on the 2nd floor (Room 204). First of all, be aware that king bed rooms are only on the 1st and 2nd floors. If you want a 3rd (top) floor room, you'll have to get a queen bed. We didn't realize...

We thought this hotel was OK, but we were a bit disappointed during our recent stay. The elevator was not working and our tub did not drain. Breakfast was OK, but I have had better. All of the employees were fantastic.
