Mountain View is an economical and comfortable choice when staying on the north Cabot Trail. It is situated centrally between Ingonish and Cheticamp. The on-site restaurant has the best breakfasts, friendly waitresses and opens early (7:30) for travellers.

If you are a solo motorcyclist and looking for a hot meal, shower and a bed, then this Motel will do the trick. The area is quiet and staff is friendly. As for the room, it was clean but there were plumbing issues with the shower, TV a bit too small, large gap in the front door and mattress too soft. All my personal opinions of course!
