Was looking for a place to stay as I sipped coffee in Tim Hortons in Barry's Bay late in the evening and thankfully I lucked out as a bed was available here via Tripadvisor. I was glad I ignored one bad review I read as contrary to same, I was delighted with my stay in Mountain View Motel. The room... More

We were very disappointed in this motel. The gentleman at the desk was friendly and appeared to have worked at some high end hotels in Scotland so we had a good feeling. Unfortunately when we got to the room.....what a let down. There was no wifi, no telephone, no clock, no radio, no hair dryer, no iron or ironing board,... More

Douglas_and_Maureen, Owner at Mountain View Motel, responded to this review

Pat, thank you for your hateful review. Cyberbullying at its worst. How long will it be before an Owner/manager or front line clerk gets so depressed that they take their own life? To publicly state "I would DEFINITELY steer people away from this motel." is disgusting and nasty. As for the list of missing items...did you ask for any of... More

I have been to Mountain View twice after camping in Algonquin Park. The owners are Scottish and a delightful couple. The husband works the kitchen and the wife runs the front desk. She bubbles with enthusiasm. The rooms are clean and basic. there is free wifi. Full breakfast is offered but is an extra cost but worth it. The motel... More

So thats what we did, and you could choose between some delicious things! We really enjoyed the breakfast and the owner's where Scotisch people,... More

We spent two days at the Mountain View while in the area and very much enjoyed our stay. The motel is simple but very clean and comfortable. Though on the highway, noise wasn't bad. Be sure to add on a fresh cooked, home-made breakfast to your stay!

Pleasant place to stay overnight. Small rooms with furniture of certain age, but good parking, outside seating, breakfast menu for fair prices and good free wifi. Nice owners, who want you to feel good. You will not find any plastic cups in the rooms, like in other motels, but real cups and wine glasses, too.

I've stayed at the mountain view motel several times on business. I recommend this place to stay in Barry's bay Very close to town and friendly owner. Rooms include a fridge and microwave. Sat television as well. I will certainly stay here again.
