Cheap and cheerful, but a little slim on the cheer. Cons Took cash with no receipt, but still charged tax (do one or the other, no receipt, no tax). Restaurant not thrilling, breakfasts inadequate. Sullen service, save for one lovely server who smiled and seemed glad to see customers. Room reeked of disinfectant, smelled like a vet. Shower semi-broken. Pros... More

Over the holiday weekend, we took a family drive over the Cabot trail and stayed at this restaurant and motel. The view was amazing! We booked a cabin for the evening And had supper atbhe restaurant. The cabin was a great size, very relaxing and clean. The turkey dinner was delicious and a great price. The service was very friendly... More

Judging by the other reviews, other people had different experiences than my husband and I. We stayed in room 4 and the bed was firm around the edge but sunken in the middle. There is not a phone in the room. If you need anything like ice, you must walk to the restaurant and ask for it. The TV worked... More

It was difficult to find accomodation in that area so finally we decided to book here. It was nothing more than a average North American Motel: clean, the bed is okay, but don't expect any comfort. I have never experienced that you have to pay for coffee in a Motel. It's location is excellent but if you plan to visit... More

We stayed at the motel and found it great. The room was big, bed was extremely comfortable....had the best night sleep of the whole vacation. Price was reasonable. the homemade soup in the restaurant was excellent and the chef salad was perfect. The only complaint I have is that they use the same pot for coffee and tea, so as... More

From my first visit to the Mountain View Motel, I was welcomed like family. My room was clean and spacious and my little dog was thirlled with her new domain. Our meals were fresh and home-cooked style. The servers were very knowledgable about the area and were extremely helpful with advice on where to go and what to do based... More

I wasn't able to find the restaurant listed for this on the review list, so I will leave a comment here. I did not stay in the motel so I cannot comment on that. My friend and I ate at this restaurant on our first night in Pleasant Bay. The place was completely empty, so we had no problem getting... More

This motel is located right at the start of Pleasant Bay - so if you'd like to go for a walk - walk further towards the town. Rooms are large and about average - the restaurant is good - but service a bit inconstant - perhaps that was because we were dining a little late. Our servers had to be... More

This motel is right on the Cabot Trail. I stayed there and drove to hiking trails from there: Bog trail, Famous Skyline trail, and also to the Rusty Anchor restaurant. The motel is pretty basic. Breakfast is not included.
