Mountain View Motel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Barry's Bay
Reviewed 30 September 2013

The room is small, however there was a lot of space to sit outdoors. Its a beautiful location. Once night hits, its very quiet and you get an amazing view of the stars in the sky. The hotel is old, my room wasn't quite clean, and the towels are not soft! The bed was clean, and breakfast each day was very good! The grilled cheese and pancakes were delicious! The owners are very nice and friendly.

We stay in this motel once a year and always get the same warm welcome. Room is small but always clean. Location for exploring Highway 60 and its charming towns is excellent. Breakfast is something we look forward to, not just for the food but because of the charm of the motel owners. Lovely place to stay.

We chose this motel as we planned to spend the day travelling through Algonquin Provincial Park and we needed to stay fairly close to the east gate (30 minute drive). We were able to pre-book by using a telephone kiosk to call their toll free number. Excellent value with very friendly and helpful owners. Breakfast (cooked by Douglas and served by Maureen) was modestly priced and I was delighted to get a properly brewed pot of tea. They recommended Wilno Tavern for an evening meal which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Haven't been a guest of late, but have stayed there several times. Luxury? No, but have others have said..."Go stay at Derrhurst or Couples and see what you pay for a night's sleep.

This is a clean and convenient motel. The owners are friendly and helpful. They let us book a room (@ a discounted price) for a shower and clean drinking water when we were out of power for a week. The breakfast was wonderful.

We have recommended and used this motel on numerous occasions. It is close to all emmenities in the region. Their prices are very reasonable.

We were passing through and needed a place to stay. Hotel is kept clean and manicured. Room was clean. It is a motel built maybe in the 70's with block and that makes up part of the walls in the room with the 70's panelling. Furniture is old but clean. The owners are pleasant and hands on. Breakfast and conversation in the morning was delightful. Mattress a little to hard for older people.

Room Tip: Beds are double size so pay extra and choose the room with two doubles if you like extra room while...

We visited Kaszuby for the first time and we were glad that we were able to find board at this motel. Friendly family business, we wish we had the time to eat breakfast at their restaurant as the food looked pretty good.

I opened this site to show my co-worker what a nice motel this was to stay at, as my husband and I stayed there a few years ago. I was shocked at dresda's wrote and could not believe anyone would complain about such trivial things. Complain about poor service, dirty rooms, or excessive noise, not items like those that were mentioned. All smaller hotels, even some of the "chain" hotels provide the same or similar provisions. Mountain View is a small country side motel, not a luxury resort. If luxury is wanted drive to Deerhurst and pay the $300.00 price tag. Mountain View is a clean, comfortable, convenient, and affordable motel. We totally enjoyed our stay at the hotel, as did our friends and found everything very accommodating. We had everything we needed and nothing was old, smelly or musty, trust me, I would have noticed, and if it were, I would have no problem informing the owner who would most definitely want to know. Motel owner's rely on guests to inform them of any problems so they can fix them as soon as possible. Yes, our room was small and it was perfectly adequate. They had larger but we did not need it so we did not ask for it. Our room was what it was supposed to be, a clean, comfortable place to sleep and stay while we enjoyed the local offerings. Bathroom provisions were perfectly fine and it was immaculate. They had a fantastic breakfast the next morning. Friends recommended this place to us and we liked it enough to recommend it to any of our friends travelling in that direction. I assured my coworker that this review should be totally disregarded and that the other reviews are more in line with the true experience of the motel. Mountain View is a reasonably priced, clean, and accommodating motel for anyone wanting to explore the Barry's Bay, Algonquin area. We plan on returning this fall and we look forward to staying there again. The owner's response was well done and I agree, this type of cyber bullying does need to stop!

Debbi, thank you so much for your comments. They are much appreciated and go someway to restoring our faith in the accuracy of this forum. Having always tried to treat everyone with fairness and respect it does tend to take the feet from beneath you. However in the intervening period we have had so many lovely new people and all our returning guests that have made us smile again. Our hope is that if anyone reading these comments has any concerns or fears then they need only look at our website or facebook page to get a glimpse of who we are.
We are of course delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us last year and Maureen and I look forward to welcoming you back in the fall when the Autumn leaves along the highway 60 corridor should be at there most vibrant.

Kind regards, Doug and Maureen
