We spent 2 nights in one of the motel rooms, the room and bathroom were small but very clean except bedspread needed washing. I loved the view of the mountains from our back deck. We also were able to do our laundry with excellent and clean washer and dryers. The landscaping on the grounds was impeccable and the owner and... More

Oh yeh... It's surprising how much electrical juice hair dryers pull! Especially when the frig, air conditioner, lights, TV and bathroom heat lamp are running, as in this instance. It's all part of our Energy Awareness Program! We're fortunate that such hair dryer incidents rarely occur and count ourselves lucky to have Customers such as the Gold Wing Traveler who... More

Thank you JM! Your review makes me want to stay here at the Mt View. Do you remember seeing the Wildflower Garden with the Birdhouse in the midst of those 4 ft tall daisies? Well, just within the past week or so, I constructed a fountain over the Birdhouse -- shoots a spray about 10 ft into the air and... More

Pride of ownership shows in the immaculate grounds of this location. Everything is clean and tidy. Only complaint - our unit with kitchen could use better seating arrangements. Maybe a loveseat or couch instead of a piano! And more comfortable chairs. Only 2 chairs in seating area plus wooden kitchen chairs.

Hi Josie72533... Yeh, that upright piano is sorta like having a BIG boat anchor -- big, heavy, unwieldy and you can't even give one away. Believe me, I've tried! Stuck with it, I think. Hmmm, would you like to have a piano? Wanna trade for a love seat? However, we've gradually been adding a rocking chair to our kitchenettes for... More

The rooms were small but that didn't matter. They were clean and very well accommodated. The host was a great guy and helped us navigate the local where to spots to go. The town of Joseph is a true little gem!

Some years ago this place was probably a typical dumpy roadside truckers' stop or "no-tell" motel. Today it's a clean, pleasant, comfortable and inexpensive motel on the edge of town. It even has charm, though given its bones that was probably hard to achieve. The nice grounds, lovely views and well appointed rooms make it a good choice for families,... More

Well, well, Chocolat4004, you're pretty insightfull! When I bought this place 5 years ago, it was "dumpy" with peeling paint and a "lawn" that had more weeds than grass and "browned out" in the Summer due to no irrigation. Still much to do BUT gaining on it! Thanks More

Great location as you enter Joseph. Well kept property with pretty RV sites, tent camping, and small efficient motel rooms. The room was supplied with the necessities and has a country fishing decor. The water tastes great! So much to do nearby with Wallowa Lake, downtown Joseph, and wilderness everything right here. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Hi there "Peacebeerlove"... and thanks for your encouraging review. Last March, I had the RV Park driveway widened and re-graveled. My task was to rake out those 12 dump trucks of gravel. While doing so, I thought to myself, "...Geez, 5 years of working hard on this place and still so much to do." So, I'm really tickled that you... More

We loved our stay for these reasons : location, back deck with spectacular view of the Wallowa mountains, friendly neighbors, very clean and well maintenance place, friendly owner, peace and quiet and the beautiful sunset. The room was small, but because of the above reasons, we did not care. We enjoyed our experience.

This was a great deal for us two couples preparing to go on a raft trip the next day. My friend has dietary restrictions, so it was perfect to have a full kitchen (fully stocked with dishes and pots and pans) to prepare our own meals.

Wow! Couldn't have written a more complimentary review if I'd done it myself! AND it's true, I'm usually "out back" mowing grass, staining decks, fixing things up... Also true, even "edgy" people appreciate flattering feedback. Thanks so much for letting us be an enjoyable beginning to your rafting trip! Happy Trails More
