When we came back at night, our room was tidy and towels refreshed. What more could one ask for! The beds/pillows could use an...

Bless this location and it's ownership. A recent unexpected snow storm left me stuck between two small towns and I thought I might have to sleep in my car. When I came across the Mountain View Motel, I was so relieved and even more so when the owner (a lovely man) opened their business to me with no reservation and...

We were very disappointed in this motel. The gentleman at the desk was friendly and appeared to have worked at some high end hotels in Scotland so we had a good feeling. Unfortunately when we got to the room.....what a let down. There was no wifi, no telephone, no clock, no radio, no hair dryer, no iron or ironing board,...

Pat, thank you for your hateful review. Cyberbullying at its worst. How long will it be before an Owner/manager or front line clerk gets so depressed that they take their own life? To publicly state "I would DEFINITELY steer people away from this motel." is disgusting and nasty. As for the list of missing items...did you ask for any of...

There was not a hairdryer.they charged us 519.80 CAD for 2 nights We had to be there that particular date, there were no other rooms available. I was...

I have been to Mountain View twice after camping in Algonquin Park. The owners are Scottish and a delightful couple. The husband works the kitchen and the wife runs the front desk. She bubbles with enthusiasm. The rooms are clean and basic. there is free wifi. Full breakfast is offered but is an extra cost but worth it. The motel...

So thats what we did, and you could choose between some delicious things! We really enjoyed the breakfast and the owner's where Scotisch people,...

We spent two days at the Mountain View while in the area and very much enjoyed our stay. The motel is simple but very clean and comfortable. Though on the highway, noise wasn't bad. Be sure to add on a fresh cooked, home-made breakfast to your stay!

Pleasant place to stay overnight. Small rooms with furniture of certain age, but good parking, outside seating, breakfast menu for fair prices and good free wifi. Nice owners, who want you to feel good. You will not find any plastic cups in the rooms, like in other motels, but real cups and wine glasses, too.

I've stayed at the mountain view motel several times on business. I recommend this place to stay in Barry's bay Very close to town and friendly owner. Rooms include a fridge and microwave. Sat television as well. I will certainly stay here again.
