Our Story

    Born Entrepreneurs Ron and Barb Wachter moved to Pullman in 1963 and acquired the Hilltop Motel & Restaurant in 1979.  In 1995 the bungalows (which were built in the 1950's) were torn down and the new 59 room hotel was built next to the existing Hilltop Restaurant.  In 2012 the Hilltop Restaurant was bulldozed and after over 60 years in business the "new" Hilltop was in progress.  In July 2013, the Wachter family celebrated the grand opening of the new 54 room addition.
     It truly is a family owned and operated business. You will often see 3 generations of family members working at the hotel.  So come enjoy The Hilltop with panoramic views of Pullman, WSU, and the Palouse- the place we proudly call our home. With our "Hometown Hospitality" you won't want to stay anywhere else.
