“The place is under new ownership, the other two reviews no longer apply.”
Reviewed December 5, 2010

The lady and I stayed at the Mountain view a couple months after the ownership change. We stayed a few years ago, and the few issues we experienced there have been fixed. Although the old owners were nice people, the new owners, a newlywed couple starting their first business, are most eager to please. The rooms are also redecorated and the cleanliness is spot-on. We simply find this place, with its trees, safety (next to police station), and excellent rates to be the best deal in town.

Reviewed November 20, 2008

The worst part was the beds. They are OLD and in BAD shape. We have slept on a full sized bed with no problems before....but two people will not fit on these beds. Not to mention the matress/springs were so so wore out you sink to the floor when you sit down.

We had a hard time checking in because the office was locked and the owner was out back drinking with some of the guests. We also had trouble parking our full sized pickup in front of our cabin because the cabins were so close together- we were nervous we would be 'parked in' and couldn't get out in the a.m.

To do over again, I would have rather stayed on the mountain in a tent. I would recommend the Z bar motel/cabins in Buffalo. The rooms are small but clean and the beds are comfortable - they were full that night.

Let's see, we got to this place because the real hotels in Buffalo were all full. The nice person at the Best Western called Mountain View for me and the gentleman had available lodging, a cabin. We said "OK" on advice from my brother who now lives in Sheridan, WY but stayed at Mountain View for a few months (they also do long term stays). The "cabin" was definitely not comparable to what you would expect from an average hotel room. White socks didn't stay white, spider in the bathroom, beds completely wore out, (can you say sinkhole?), just not very appealing, and I am not difficult to please. It did have a full kitchen but we would not have used the included pots, pans, dishes, etc.

The person at the desk was kind and helpful. It was good to have a place to stay on short notice, but I likely would not stay there again.
