Warm, comfortable room. Friendly hosts greeted us with a delicious glass of wine. Super convenient location right on US 20 just west of Elizabeth. Close to Chestnut Mountain ski resort at a reasonable rate. Definitely will be back...hopefully this season! Thanks for your hospitality!

Thanks to Andy and Joyce for their hospitality. If you like quaint, The View Motel is a great place to stay in the area; affordable and super clean. Hoping to make it to Charlie's in Hanover for breakfast next time. We'll come back again.

The room was so clean. Usually a hotel room has an odor, almost musty, not here. The beds, the pillows,...

This place is great! The owners couldn't be nicer and the room we had was very comfortable and very clean. When you see the surrounding landscape you will quickly realize why they call it The View. One of the coolest places I've stayed in a long time!

Our group stopped in for an overnight on our way home. The owner, Andy, was friendly and helpful. The motel clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. The view of the valley from the motel was breathtaking. Given the opportunity we will definitely stay again.
