We stayed 2 nights in our tiny but comfortable, cabin-like room. Our dog stayed with us in his crate. Scott was extremely helpful in pointing out places we could go while there. The little town of Joseph is artsy and has good places to eat. The view of the Wallowa mountains is spectacular from our room and from main street Joseph.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Mountain View. First time we had stayed there, won't be the last. We reserved a "cabin" room, with a kitchenette, in advance. Wanted something out of town, but not unreasonably expensive. We weren't disappointed. The rate charged was $75.00 per night, as promised. The room as clean and cheery and had all that we needed. The deck on the back of the room was very nice as we like to grill and enjoy the beautiful views. We enjoyed chatting with the owner, Scott. He was very personable and working hard to make sure that his place is well maintained and in good order. He is currently updating the rooms and sprucing up the restrooms out back. The grounds were beautiful. We recommend this place to anyone looking for a good value on a rental.

Rather old fashioned, but snowcapped mountain view causes one to forget about the room.
'Short drive to Lake Wallowa for water sports, fishing, etc.
$75 for our room seemed about right.
'On the north side of Joseph & on main road into Joseph, but I noted little road noise.

The rooms are basic, clean and OK for one night's stay. Joseph is a very picturesque and quaint place to visit. The main street is very interesting the location is great. Joseph is good place to stop after driving Rattlesnake road.

Room Tip: The motel is right on a highway that is very noisy.

Hi there, Country Girl.
Thanks for your kind comments re: The Mountain View.
Now about that noisy highway out front...it didn't used to be. So far, we couldn't talk the Highway Dept into relocating it NOR figure out how to move the motel further from the highway! BUT we have a plan.
We're planting shrubs & trees to diffuse traffic noise. AND we've begun renovating our rooms (Rooms 1 & 3 this year) to add 2" of foam insulation to all the exterior walls plus 4" to the walls between rooms. New tubs & decor as we go too!
Hope to see you again soon. Scott

Mountain View Motel & RV Park is situated just outside Joseph, OR in a picturesque setting that offers a great view of the Wallowa Mountains. The motel is clean, well-maintained and decorated in a homey fashion. Management is friendly and seems to put effort into maintenance. I particularly liked the deck on the back of the room which allows you to enjoy the mountain view. My only criticisms are small (claustrophobic) bathrooms, road noise and faint animal odor. Located among flat farmland, there aren’t any structures around to cut the sound of approaching / receding traffic; thankfully there isn’t much at night. My room also had a strong antiseptic smell that gave way to an animal odor after airing the place out; perhaps the previous guest had a smelly litter box or maybe it came from the horses next door. Finally, the screen on the slider had many holes so airing the room let the flys in. These few things notwithstanding, I think the Mountain View is reasonably priced, a decent value and an OK choice.

We like to stay at the older motels where you can park by the room and make loading and unloading luggage easier. Mountain View fit the bill. The room was clean and comfortable with unique wood furniture. The owner was personable and helpful. Overall, a very good value.

Cozy room and bath at Mountain View Motel reminded me and my traveling companion of our stops in Ireland. As someone who needs her beauty sleep, I liked Scott's sign indicating Quiet Hours 10:00 PM till 8:00 AM. Our room was clean and comfortable, our night was quiet and peaceful, and Scott was more than helpful with local information. What a super nice experience in Joseph, OR!

Room Tip: Our room was #5, a corner spot well back from the road.
