I really wanted to like the Hillside Inn. Pagosa Springs seems to be plagued with older properties that are struggling to stay decent. The prices for lodging in Pagosa Springs reflects that the hotels are not as nice and the town is not as popular as Durango.
When we checked in, the front desk clerk (owner?) asked how old my 14 year old daughter was and added an adult to our room cost. Ouch, but I didn't argue. I didn't notice that on their website.
The breakfast was a typical cereal, make your own waffle, pre-cooked sausage, and instant eggs. Much better than the mini-cinnamon rolls served in a freezing sunroom at the First Inn, but not as nice as the cooked to order breakfast at the Oak Ridge Lodge.
The mattress was decent, but there was a little deferred maintenance in the room. The lamp one side of the bed had the switch removed instead of repaired, so you could only read well in one bed, but not the other. The walls are a little thin. I was surprised to hear coughing in the room next door, and irritated to hear an early alarm clock surprisingly clearly.
The indoor pool and spa are nice and big. Plenty of room for everyone. The hallways by the rooms were overheated and it may be the heat is ducted from the indoor pool area since our room seemed very humid.
Not bad for Pagosa Springs, and the price was only a little high after they added an adult to my charge. I will keep looking for a better option before I stay at the Hillside Inn again.
