The Mouse and the Motorcyle

This a hotel review provided by Kalianna for the Mountain View Inn.

I would give this hotel two and a half stars.When I walked in I saw faded roses on the carpet,dirty pillows on the dirty bed,and i certainly did not like the mice.There were some things I did like though.I liked how my family liked it and was having a good time.I also liked how most of the electronics worked.I give the food half-and-half.It wasn't the best but it was pretty good.I didn't like the traffic at all.I did like the veiw of the mountains though.
