“Fabulous Mt. view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Rather old fashioned, but snowcapped mountain view causes one to forget about the room.
'Short drive to Lake Wallowa for water sports, fishing, etc.
$75 for our room seemed about right.
'On the north side of Joseph & on main road into Joseph, but I noted little road noise.

The rooms are basic, clean and OK for one night's stay. Joseph is a very picturesque and quaint place to visit. The main street is very interesting the location is great. Joseph is good place to stop after driving Rattlesnake road.

Room Tip: The motel is right on a highway that is very noisy.

Hi there, Country Girl.
Thanks for your kind comments re: The Mountain View.
Now about that noisy highway out front...it didn't used to be. So far, we couldn't talk the Highway Dept into relocating it NOR figure out how to move the motel further from the highway! BUT we have a plan.
We're planting shrubs & trees to diffuse traffic noise. AND we've begun renovating our rooms (Rooms 1 & 3 this year) to add 2" of foam insulation to all the exterior walls plus 4" to the walls between rooms. New tubs & decor as we go too!
Hope to see you again soon. Scott

Mountain View Motel & RV Park is situated just outside Joseph, OR in a picturesque setting that offers a great view of the Wallowa Mountains. The motel is clean, well-maintained and decorated in a homey fashion. Management is friendly and seems to put effort into maintenance. I particularly liked the deck on the back of the room which allows you to enjoy the mountain view. My only criticisms are small (claustrophobic) bathrooms, road noise and faint animal odor. Located among flat farmland, there aren’t any structures around to cut the sound of approaching / receding traffic; thankfully there isn’t much at night. My room also had a strong antiseptic smell that gave way to an animal odor after airing the place out; perhaps the previous guest had a smelly litter box or maybe it came from the horses next door. Finally, the screen on the slider had many holes so airing the room let the flys in. These few things notwithstanding, I think the Mountain View is reasonably priced, a decent value and an OK choice.

We like to stay at the older motels where you can park by the room and make loading and unloading luggage easier. Mountain View fit the bill. The room was clean and comfortable with unique wood furniture. The owner was personable and helpful. Overall, a very good value.

Cozy room and bath at Mountain View Motel reminded me and my traveling companion of our stops in Ireland. As someone who needs her beauty sleep, I liked Scott's sign indicating Quiet Hours 10:00 PM till 8:00 AM. Our room was clean and comfortable, our night was quiet and peaceful, and Scott was more than helpful with local information. What a super nice experience in Joseph, OR!

Room Tip: Our room was #5, a corner spot well back from the road.

We had a very peaceful, and relaxing time at the scenic Mountain View Motel. It is out of town a mile or two so it was quiet. There were horses in a neighboring pasture which added to the beautiful surroundings. Scott, the owner, was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The grounds were groomed and the rooms were clean and welcoming. There were portable fire pits available for those who wanted to use them as well as a large woodpile to gather wood from. We will definitely return for another stay and recommend that you try it too.

Scott, thanks for the good time we all had at your establishment. It was such a hit with ALL the guys and wives that we were hoping to start making it our yearly meeting place. Your rooms and guest support was unmatched anywhere we had met before. I hope that we can reserve the same block of time. We are planning to meet at your place again from July 31st through the night of August 3rd, checking out on the 4th. Hopefully MORE of our L Troop brothers (and sister's) can make it next year. EVERYONE agreed that it was a super location, clean and comfortable rooms, and a GREAT host.

Thanks for everything

Dave Campbell (aka Magilla)

Room Tip: Choose anytime to be treated great except our reunion dates
