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 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.

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

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
