I booked two nights at the Mountain View Inn through a Groupon offer. I read the reviews prior to booking a reservation for my boyfriend and I but did notice that new management had recently taken over and decided to give them a chance. First impression, It is an old two story motel with green carpet and a vending machine in the lobby, not the fanciest place. I knew I was getting a good deal so the décor wasn’t that big of an issue, the place was clean and the carpets seemed to just be washed. Our room was on the second floor in the corner, the room is huge with a street view and mountain view. The furniture is from the 80s but I had a working tv, fridge and microwave. Within 20 minutes of being there two gentlemen opened the door noticed me on the bed and closed the door. I was a little weirded out but let it go as they looked like maintenance men, we had issues with the rooms air conditioner and had to sweat through our first night’s stay until the next day when a new air conditioner could be installed. The staff did try to accommodate with a fan but honestly it was not enough we had a miserable time sleeping. The maintenance men spent the better half of our second night in and out of the room installing the new air conditioner. I could have lived with the décor and air conditioning issues and been content with our stay but the staff seem to have no concept for privacy and barge into a room without even knocking. The front desk employee walked into the room and noticed us in the room and said “oh you’re here, sorry, I came to get the fan back” at that point I was peeved that was the second time she had allowed herself into the room. How could you be shocked that your guests are in their rooms? I didn’t mind the interprets just the fact that they don’t knock before unlocking the door became a problem. We started dressing I the bathroom just in case.
