I must start out this by writing that the person who helped us with our reservation and who helped us after we arrived was really nice. Her name is Elaine, I believe. She was very helpful and provided wonderful customer service. She was really a "one-man (or woman) show." She did everything, it appeared. Took the reservations and ran the store next to the motel. Mountain View, AR is a beautiful place. All the people we met there were extremely friendly! The motel itself is situated within several yards of the White River--a beautiful location. We were unable to stay in the lodge area, which is attached to the store and restaurant. We stayed in the older, unattached motel section. It was old, with a few rickety floor boards. Details were not important to the cleaning staff, it seems. All I can say is that is was not very clean. There were dead bugs on the floor, which was very old carpet. Under the bed we found old clothes that had been stuffed there. There were no odors and no smell of dust. And that was appreciated, since our family has allergies. But we could tell there was grime and dirt in the corners, nooks, crannies (especially the bathroom) and we were not sure about some of the stains on the bedding. Small (12in) tv, with limited cable, but enough for our needs. Bathroom was very small, with toilet not fastened well to the floor. It rocked a bit. However, it was inexpensive (about $71 per night) and the people and activities around the area and Mt. View were really great. When we reported the clothes under the bed, a waitress from the restaurant/store came over and got them from under the bed. We were not there for the fishing or the fishing guides. We were there to get away from the city and spend some quality time together. And that's what we did. We did not focus on the room. We were able to focus on each other and our shared activities away from phones, offices and computers and computer games. It was the get-away and the people of Anglers and Mt.View that made this trip and the motel well worth our trouble.
