Definitely recommend staying at this motel if you are ever in International Falls. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the decor gives them a warm, comfortable, north woods feeling. The couple who run the motel are very friendly and offer great customer service. One of the best "Mom & Pop" motels we have ever stayed at.

This place is literally 4 walls and a bed. The bed takes almost the entire room. The bathroom is very small. You cannot sit squarely on the toilet, the sink is in your way. You have to sit at an angle to use the the toilet. The bathroom sink has a shelf directly above it making it hard to brush...

On our way to Canada to fish and needed a place to stay on the way. I decided to try the Hilltop and was pleasantly surprised. The cost was more than reasonable and the room was clean, comfortable. The people there were friendly and helpful. I will stay here again in the future.

After a bad experience the night before, I decided to call ahead for a place to stay, and talked with the owner - really nice, about their place, rooms and everything they said was true! Homey, very clean, quiet, and pride of ownership. Great hospitality from the owner with any questions or if we needed anything. Their rates are very...

We stopped on our way to Canada for the night. We were not sure what to expect by a smaller non-chain hotel. We made the right choice. After deciding to stay we made small talk with the owners. Asking about the weather, things to do, people, and seasons. It was then when we heard; "We're from Missouri." What a shock,...

We stay at the Hilltop on our way to fish in Canada.Great owners, comfortable rooms, and reasonable rates. International Falls has a lot of motels but we wouldn't stay anywhere other than the Hilltop!

Very nice and relaxing especially after a long drive. Barb has always been very accommodating. Easy in and out for those who trailer a boat. Close to restaurants and services. We have stayed here for a number of years and always found it to be clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone traveling up north.

A great place to transition leaving the business world to slip off fishing and relaxation. We stayed going out and coming back. Owners are very accommodating and get you to whatever or wherever you need to go. Just right

Got in late after a long drive. They had the room ready for us, clean and unlocked. Not much of a breakfast, plastic wrapped pastries and a cup of coffee. Much nicer than the one super cheap motel in the west part of town.

In June, my husband and I traveled with several other couples in our vintage British sports cars to Kenora, Ontario for the annual British sports car rendezvous. We stayed a night at the Hilltop. This was the second time in about four years that a crowd of us stayed there. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. I especially liked...
