I arrived after riding through the worst storm I have ever experienced. They were very sympathetic and "processed" me as quickly as they could. The room was very clean with good towels. I didn't try the a/c as it was cool after the storm. The motel is older but well maintained. The restaurant was good and reasonably priced. The staff... More

The options in Pleasant Bay are limited. This motel was clean, with new linens. Other than that it is a seasonal operation that lacks polish. One bed in the room was fine (Room 9, near the window), the other bed was terrible - very bouncy and lacking support. The shower wasn't great - not much water and sketchy hot water.... More

The food was obviously defrosted at fresh prepared rates. The staff was miserable, distant, and disinterested. Eat here if you want a dismal dining experience. Better yet, buy some chips at the convenience store and drive much further away.

So sorry, to hear you had a unsatisfying experience. Just wondering if it was our restaurant? Our staff is always pleasant and food has never been reviewed like that before, please feel free to try the food and if not fully satisfied, it will be on us. Thank you More

If you're traveling to Cape Breton in August and headed to the cabot trail then the Mountain View Motel is the answer to what you're looking for. You might be debating whether to start on the Cheticamp or Ingonish side. You're probably hoping to do a little whale watching. You're thinking, where can I get a delicious hot meal that... More

We only ate lunch there. But I can confidently say it's the worst seafood chowder in Nova Scotia possibly Canada! The majority of seafood was canned tuna! There was what could have possible been a little sliver of haddock, but I can't be sure. When asked how my food was I replied " the canned tuna was great" with a... More

We stayed in a 2 room cottage. We only slept there and had breakfast at the restaurant. I traveled with 2 adult children and it was comfortable with 1 queen bed in one bedroom and another in a seperate bedroom. The cottage was very clean and had a nice kitchen area that we didn't use but it would have been... More

Great innkeeper, no frills standard roadside motel right on the Cabot Trail, at the bottom of North Mountain. Very close to tons of hiking trails in the park, including the Skyline Trail. Satellite TV & free wifi for rooms. Large room with a clean bathroom. Very quiet.

My partner and I stayed at the Mountain View July 08-11th while vacationing with our dog Otis in Cape Breton National Highlands Park. Our stay was great from the moment we arrived till the hugs and goodbyes were given as we left. The family and staff at the Mountain View were exceptional in providing an experience that just wouldn't have... More
