Mountain View Motel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was close enough to 395 to be walkable to the main shops along the road. The staff was very accommodating. The room was older, but clean.

This is a decent place to stay. Nothing special. Don't think they actually offer breakfast in a real sense. Jugs of milk and OJ, bin of cereal and a pot of coffee. Oh yes, a vending machine. Didn't look at what was in it. Jake's is a good breakfast restaurant. Denny's not so much. The room was comfortable. No thermostat, just heat on or off with some temp control. No microwave. But I'm a guy and was by myself. So it worked.

Breakfast not a lot to choose from. No cereal a few little donuts

Though I had requested a 1st floor room due to a disability, none were available unless I paid $30 more than I had already paid. Not appropriate! The price had already been very high for a simple room. The room was disappointing--carpet dirty. But it was good sized and the bed was good. The continental breakfast was supposed to be available at 7 a.m. Several of us were there for it. By 7:10, many more there and someone went to the office, rang bell and knocked repeatedly, but no response. Finally, 7:25, the manager (?) comes out and says it was supposed to start at 7:30. Nonsense! One couple was from Germany and said that, due to limited English, they confirmed the 7 a.m. starting time twice! All the others outside waiting had also been told 7 a.m. No apology from the manager. He acted belligerently. The quality of the continental breakfast was poor.

Friendly staff, easy check in. Surprisingly very very clean. No coffee maker in rooms, but they do provide coffee in the breakfast area.

We had a good experience overall. The only inconvenience was that the room had bugs I think that there was a plague in the area because we noticed them in several places in town.

It was an okay hotel. Fine room. It's okay for one night. We stayed there before going to Yosemite. Breakfast was not worth mentioning

I was expecting a lot less; but to my delightful surprise it was big (compared to more modern motels) clean and the air conditioner worked just fine! Dolores, the Manager on site loaned me a coffee maker for the entire 6 night stay so I could brew a cup before the breakfast room opened at 7 a.m. I'll definitely stay here again!!

After one night stay, we dropped our room keys at the front office, and come back in the evening, we found some foods are cleared from the minifrigerator which we have kept our food for second night stay. We think that those food should be kept inside until our coming back to the motel for second night stay.They said by dropping keys means we checked out. It's a nonsence.

The shower head was terrible with very low water pressure. I understand they're conserving water, but I would have been better off with a sponge bath...No tub. The continental breakfast could have been better...although the coffee was good. Broken window left the room a little drafty. The linens were soiled. although the rest of the room was clean.

This would not make the AAA 3 start rating list showers small our water pressure or the nozal l wasn't good at all. The first set of stairs are falling apart someone could get hurt. The continental breakfast was only coffee and cereal. The Beds where the only part that was very good. Would not stay there agian

rooms are big and clean, staff was friendly, quiet location off main st.395, quiet , wish they had microwaves in room

I understand conserving water, but the water pressure was too low for comfort. Also, the water temperature kept going up and down. It would have been nice if the room had been heated when i arrived.

We were on our way to LA from Lake Tahoe during the holidays,and we were looking for a clean motel with a continental breakfast. This motel fit the bill very well. The staff was helpful in finding a late night restraint, and the motel had wi-fi hookup a. So it was a good value for a reasonable price.

The Staff was so very helpful and courteous. we called ahead and stated we were arriving late and they made us feel as if we were at home. the room was clean and fresh. Little on the dated side. But for the most part it served it's purpose. The continental breakfast was a lil lack luster. Just toast, coffee , hot water for tea and corn flakes. But i do understand the economy is not that god at this time and that may have been the reason way such a limited selection. Also It may be there off season. But I will stay there again, if I need a room in Bishop. We were mainly there for the camping the rest of the weekend.

We reached the hotel and the rooms we had ordered were not available After negotiations with the landlord, we had rooms An unbearable smell in rooms Weak air conditioner

I would not stay at this hotel again. It was one of the worst hotels we have stayed in.

The motel is old but clean. The staff are friendly and try to meet your needs. Considering the rate of the motel, the continental breakfast is adequate.

Older motel but very clean. The staff is very friendly and will try to meet your needs. The continental breakfest is more than adequate considering the cost of the room.

Went fishing in at Bishop Creek area. Very convenient location to get to the fishing locations.
