I have stayed at the Hillside Motel a number of times over the years and will continue to do so any time I make overnight trips to the Farmington River for fishing. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. The owners are very friendly
I am giving it three stars, but anybody who expects anything like a chain motel would more likely give it one star. On my own personal scale (clean, quiet, comfortable) it rates five stars, so I am compromising with the three star rating.
The place has a funky charm and reminds me of motels that I stayed in as a kid in the late fifties and early sixties when I did some travelling with parents and grandparents. You can find more upscale accommodations nearby, if that is what you want, but if you need a good place to crash after fishing all day, Hillside Motel is the place for you.
