My husband and I enjoyed the Cabot Trail this past week (October 2012) and when we exited the park one dark rainy evening we were relieved to find the Mountain View Motel. The staff was friendly, especially the waitresses and the food was tasty and good value, particularly dinner.. We returned to our room after eating to find it still icy cold as the baseboard heaters had not come on during our mealtime as we had expected. My husband walked back (in the rain) to get help from the manager who told him, "it should be working". We agreed with that, but it wasn't.. Also the remotes for the TV did not work and we were getting quite chilled so my husband went again and this time the manager came to have a look, then left again. He returned with a space heater which worked though the handle fell off. The TV remotes were exchanged but still did not work. The manager got one channel for us ,Global Winnipeg :-D) The room was clean and neat though nothing has been new for a very looong time. There was a split down the corner of the plastic shower enclosure (more than two feet long) and the tub caulking was missing in many places and mold visible. I did NOT see bugs and am very glad about that. The bathroom door could not be closed. The wall paper was peeling off in several places.There was no phone or microwave or coffee and the tv was very small and cheap (and the one channel). The internet was not working either. The thin old curtains let the light in from the outside fixture which might be something which would keep some persons awake. The mattresses are soft which is another thing which some people would find negative. We think the manager should have moved us to a room where the heaters worked. He also should have offered us a reduction or perhaps a free breakfast, but nothing at all! I would not recommend this place nor return.
