“an okay place to stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The attractive exterior of this place grabbed our attention as we were tiring of time on the road. The rooms, however, are a little worn, stuffy and I felt should be a little cleaner. I reminded myself that "one gets what one pays for" since it was our most inexpensive overnight. But I was surprised in the morning by an unexpected breakfast spread for a small hotel. Not the fare of larger hotels but actually do have a waffle maker and a hot pot of gravy. The sunny cheerful breakfast spot balances out with the staleness of the rooms.

Dear Sharon T, I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfast. We try our hardest to have a little something for everyone in the mornings. I'm sorry you felt our rooms were not up to par but rest assured we're taking measures to fix any problems you may have experienced.

Great value and hotel. Wonder setting. Jo at the front desk was great to talk to. Hotel was older but in good repair. Setting was great, but we love the country. Would have liked to explore the country more, but had to move on

Dear Shannon S, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at our establishment. The Mountain View area is full of places to explore and scenery to see, sometimes too much for one weekend! Our Front Desk staff tries their hardest to make sure every guest feels at home. If you love exploring the country the Fall season is a wonderful time to do so! We would love to have you stay with us and enjoy the leaves changing, cooler temperatures, and famous arts and crafts around the Mountain View area.

Overall this is an ok hotel. Decent for the price. Word to the wise, this town gets swamped by folk music lovers most weekends so most in the area fill up.
I didn't know that when I booked and it was my bad that I did so online and didn't realize we were getting a smoking room. For a non-smoking family with kids it was gross. The staff did what they could, giving us a de-ionizer but there were no other rooms to switch to. It helped but my kids were both sick from the smoke or dust-- I don't know-- by the middle of the night.
Good things-- the nice outdoor pool, the free breakfast and free wifi.

Room Tip: Call and book in person

Dear Marla S, we're sorry your stay wasn't as comfortable as we'd have liked it to be, but I'm glad that you did enjoy the breakfast, free wi-fi, and pool area. Our housekeeping staff tries their hardest to make every guest comfortable but it is always a good idea when making reservations online to call the hotel ahead of your check in date and make sure everything is in order. If we see a mistake on your reservation we will try our hardest here to correct it. We hope your next stay with us is much more enjoyable.

Nice enough room; actually a bit better than I expected. The room had a small fridge plus a microwave, which was a nice touch. I could finish eating some leftovers. Many fluffy pillows. The staff was friendly, they didn't have water at breakfast, only bottle water to sell, but they gave me one for free. Breakfast was better than expected, it included waffles and hot toast.
The only thing to watch out is if you have a handicapped person in your party. The building is only 2 stories, so there is no elevator and the stairs are pretty steep. I didn't mentioned this when reserving and they were completely full, but they were able to accommodate my in-laws on a first floor room.

Room Tip: If you will be going in and out of your room several times, ask for a 1st floor room. Stairs are ste...

Dear leonisse, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our hotel and that we could accommodate your family's needs during your visit. We try our hardest to meet every guest's need even when we are fully booked. It is always a wise option to call in if you've made a reservation online to ensure that everything you need is available and even if you talked to us directly we certainly don't mind double checking your reservation.

The Mountain View area is not high on luxury, by any means. This hotel is one of the best. The location is on the main road within walking distance to many restaurants. Less than a 5 minute drive to the town square- highly recommend going here in the evening to listen to music. Within 15 minutes from Blanchard Springs and the Ozark Folk Center- both worth a visit. The lady at the front desk is very sweet and the pool is great.

Room Tip: I would stay upstairs if at all possible.

Dear Mandy J, Thank you for your well written review of our hotel. I'm so glad you enjoyed the location of the hotel and it's closeness to other areas of interest in Mountain View. You actually mentioned one of the most important pluses we offer to our guests. We try to accommodate our guests in every way possible and our Front Desk Associates especially try their hardest to help everyone they can. If you get the chance we would love for you to make a return visit.

It seems to me that it would be a good idea to turn air-conditioner on before guests get there. Especially when it is a 100 degrees outside. It took about 6 to 8 hours for our room to cool down. It was absolutely miserable. We had to go to the store to get a fan. The staff was friendly but it was a pretty miserable evening.

Lets see, I looked all over for a hotel and found this one rated #2 in mountain view on here. I was fine with the prices, they were reasonable; the rooms were disgusting (but by reading previous reviews on here I was hoping they might be over exaggerating a bit).
To cut to the chase-after the first night my husband woke up with a few bites on him, the next day he was covered in them (even one in an unmentionable area!) Upon inspection of the mattresses & pulling them away from the walls we found large amounts of fresh bed bug feces all over them. Not to mention other bugs and probably an inch thick of dust and dirt behind the beds. We checked out at 11 pm and drove home. Now we are stripping down naked before entering our house and leaving every single item of luggage in the car until we can take them to the laundry mat and HOPEFULLY not bring them home. I don't know what we are going to do but that's our plan and we are praying that it works.
