This place is a dump. Yes, the room was clean and the bed was okay, but the place is still a dump. The room is tight and full of junk...things you would find on the street. Found a small coffee maker under the sink, but no coffee. And no, I won't wash the dishes if I use them

The bed was the most comfortable bed we had on our whole trip!!! We slept so well - it was a huge bed! Everything was clean and...

The motel was clean and comfortable. The mattress was very comfortable . The is not one of the name brand hotels but it is half the price. The wifi worked and was free. The owner was very helpful giving directions and advice. Not the Ritz but outstanding for the money

My initial booking was for two nights, but I was so comfortable at Hillside that I found myself, with credit card in hand, walking to Mr. Kant's office, where I said, "Mr. Kant, may I stay another night?" He smiled and extended my booking -- and I did the same thing the next morning, too, for a total here of...

Bad smell when you walk in, tiles in the bathroom had still white sprinkles from (maybe) shaving cream or toothpaste and mould around the tub. And then I have seen mouse poop on the counter of the "kitchen". Owner offered me a different room, opened up the door under the sink and the same picture even in the tray were...

Staff was really nice rooms were clean. Parked my motorcycle just outside the room. This made it easy to load and unload. When I arrived it had just stopped raining and I was hungry. Proprietor helped out with some menus. Food was delivered and I was a happy camper. Like I said it's funky and a bit run down but...

Very accommodating staff! Clean linens, comfortable beds. Our party of 4 needed two rooms with two beds each; one of us could not handle stairs. We were given one "upgraded" room (#5 I think), and No. 2, which was across the small parking lot and in the basement of a house. The 2xqueen bed room was spacious, and had a...

Stayed at this motel while traveling to see family and was happy with my stay. Bed was comfy, staff was fantastic and helpful. I asked for more towels and was given them without a question where as other places charged me for extras, loved that they had dishes available so no paper plates were needed, Beautiful view of the Bay...

We booked this place due to its low price and were pleasantly surprised by how great it was. Clean room, comfortable bed and friendly owner. Best sleep we had in a week of driving across the continent. Don't let the exterior fool you. Fantastic motel.

This hotel does not look like much from the outside, but I was pleasantly surprised as the room was very clean and comfortable. I slept better here than anywhere else on our vacation, even though we stayed at more expensive places on other nights. The view of the Bay of Fundy was beautiful, although you have to request a room...
