My friends and I spent the weekend at the Fountain View and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was clean and fresh. It was close to the places we wanted to go. The owners were very helpful on directions and gave suggestions on other places to visit as well. We had a wonderful time. We would not hesitate to... More

My Husband and I recently stayed at this Motel for 1 night from the minute we got there the owner was there to greet us our room was clean and ready for our arrival. I found the refrigerator with pop in it adorable I could not remember the last place I have stayed where they charge you 60 cents for... More

My husband and I picked the Fountain View Motel because it was within a short drive to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and the price seemed reasonable. I must say check-in was quick but the gentleman was not overly friendly. I wasn't sure it was because we were on a motorcycle or not but I noticed this curtness... More

I am glad that with us you had a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced room close to Cooperstown. Thank you for your kind words. I have nothing against motorcycles. Until recently I even used to ride one. I generally like them and the people who ride them. That's why I left towels the next morning for you to dry them off.... More

The Fountain View suffers from what many motels on the old By-Ways do. It needs work but the return may not be worth the expense. The room was clean, the bathroom fresh. The A/C worked fine. There is no wi-fi (we knew that) and no ability to book on line. Dated as everything was, the charge of $81 for a... More

Clean, comfortable room for $81 a night. In this area, that is saying something. By the way, we have had high-speed internet coverage for several years now. Thanks for the kind words, Ed More

I guess I'm out of options in Richfield Springs, my 6th time since 2005 staying in this town. First I was not pleased with Village Motel, then I was very happy with a small motel down the road, but it closed its doors for some reason, so I then just tried the Fountain View Motel on rt. 20. The room... More

I shouldn't take this personally but I do. Apparently the reviewer blames us for the recent closure of a nearby motel owned by a friend of his. That is the only motivation I can think of for his review. I charged his credit card only once, $54.00 plus tax. My family and I have been operating this motel for over... More

Motels are pricey during the summer near Cooperstown and this is the best deal in the area. Rooms are clean and large, beds are comfy, chairs outside to enjoy the fresh air. Don't let the dated decor bother you-everything you need is up to date.

Our fourth stay at the Fountain view. 1. maid service is superb! 2. bed linen & bath towels, wash cloths are white & spotless! 3. Owners are on site & available when required. 4. Wireless Internet is available. If you are in the Cooperstown area, this is the place to stay!

This was my first visit to the Fountain View, but not my first view of the swans in Richfield Springs. Over the years I've been passing them by for a loooong time! My sister and I have been annual visits to Glimmerglass Opera for 10 years. We decided to make a change for the motel this year and here is... More

Stayed at the Fountain View many times. Great place. If you’re looking for the Hilton, this ain’t it. However, if you are looking for true Americana, this is a great example. Kind of like stepping back in time a bit and that’s a welcome change. The negative review above was unnecessary. These are hard working people with a nice place.... More

This was our third stay at the Fountain View. When we first started attending the Glimmerglass, we stayed at hotels in Cooperstown. What did we get? Expensive rooms, marginal service & noise. What do we have at the Fountain View? A large clean comfortable room, parking in front of our door, quiet & the maid service is well done. Three... More
