Needed a place to stay with a friend on the way to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, I had read great reviews, but was still a little nervous about what to expect and anything else near the Dunes would've been extra distance to drive....More

Really friendly owner who makes great recommendations. Pretty much in middle of nowhere but best place close to great sand dunes. Hotel very clean and comfortable. Unlikely to be in this area again but would definitely stay here if I was.

Mountain View Motor Inn is now under new ownership, by a retired disabled Marine, since May 2017. Come experience our clean, comfortable non-smoking rooms and excellent customer service. We are conveniently More located only 30 minutes from the Great Sand Dunes National Park and rent Slip Face sand boards and sand sleds for added fun. Enjoy the quaint town of Fort Garland, stop for a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants, hop the Rio Grande train at the depot and don't forget to check out one of the oldest standing Forts left from the Great Western Expansion of the 1860's. With close proximity to excellent fishing, hiking and hunting, making us the perfect location for all of your outdoor adventures in the beautiful San Luis Valley. We look forward to seeing you! Less
