While planning a quick overnight road trip in the summer in the Cooperstown area, many boutique motels and chain hotels are extremely pricy during the tourist season. Fountain View Motel is just a short, 20-minute drive to downtown Cooperstown and the price was just right. The outside is cute, rooms are a bit outdated --but it's cozy and fun for... More

My first impression was the man checking us in had no personality...contrary to other reviews posted here. The fountain across the street no longer looks like a fountain, the water gushed from the side. Our room was clean, the bathroom had been updated. The mattress was dreadfully uncomfortable. The wireless was spotty.so, having said all that, for 1 night it... More

My wife and I, while looking for a place to stay while we were visiting Cooperstown, NY. discovered this location on TripAdvisor. This is a 16 room, 60's/70's era motel that is dated but the price for the stay was very reasonable. It is very clean and the rooms are a great size. The 60Cent sodas in the in-room fridge... More

When ever I am back in Richfield Springs area and there is space available I like staying at this place. Its a classic place to stay, good sized rooms, and a very friendly owner and operator. Ed is very helpful.

Years ago I would drive by the Fountain View at night and see the fountain with colored lights and the artifical swans and ask my father if we could stay there sometime. It looked so beautiful and peaceful. I have had the opportunity to stay many times since and find it a wonderful reminder of past days - even the... More

I have stayed at The Fountain View Motel a few times. My mother in law had a summer camp in Richfield Springs for about 20 years. I love the area and since her place was sold I have used The Fountain View when visiting the area a couple of times. The room was large and dated. It was also very... More

This place is a classic "motor-court" style of motel and on a recent summer visit it was just perfect. We needed a "base camp" for exploring Cooperstown and Sharon Springs and with its location perched on the eastern Route 20 hip of Richfield Springs, across from the town's eponymous water supply, this exactly fit the bill. Our room was spacious... More

Very nice motel to sit outside of in the evening and admire the fountain in the local water supply--along with fake swans! The room was spacious, although the ceiling was water stained and the heaters had rust stains.I wonder about these older family owned budget motels--they have a nice feeling but I can't help but think I'd slap on more...

I have stayed at the Fountain View many times over the years. Love the place! I feel lucky to be able to experience a well preserved representation of what used to be. I don't expect a five star in Richfield Springs, but I get a good nights sleep in a clean room there. Ed might be a little quiet sometimes,... More

I've stayed at the Fountain View Motel for weekend family activities the past two years. The ownership is friendly and the place is clean and well maintained, although old. It's your basic motel room with all the necessary things one would expect for a budget room. It's well located, and quiet.
