It was very nice that there was water, rags and buckets provided so we could wash down our motorcycles after a hard day of riding. We were also given helpful information on the back roads to ride. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

We spent two nights here while on a motorcycle trip up the Great River Road. The owners are super friendly. We had the Harley themed room and our friends had the Southwest room next door. It is the kind of old style motor hotel that you don't see a lot of anymore. Would stay here again if we were passing... More

We found this gem while traveling the great river road. Tucked away behind a charming gazebo and stand of trees, it is easy to miss. While there isn't much to do in fountain city, you are less than 10 minutes from Winona, MN, home of a small but excellent art museum and a world class Shakespeare Festival. We discovered both...

We spent two nights here on our motorcycle trip. This is a small mom and pop motel, very clean, nice owners. They were very accommodating and gave us much needed information about the area and the "rides" in and around the Mississippi River. Definitely will return if we get in that area again.

We were traveling with two other couples on our Harley's. This motel was perfect for our needs. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They even offered to shuttle us into town. Although we did not take them up on this generous offer, it was extremely kind of them. The rooms are immaculate!!! Prices are right!! Unfortunately, we had to... More

We needed a place to stay and all the decent hotels in Winona, MN were booked. We found this gem just a few miles out of town. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the owners were helpful and efficient. The prices were reasonable. We would stay there again!

My husband gave me this trip as a birthday gift. We had a difficult time finding a motel and were grateful Fountain City Motel had 1 room left. We stayed in the Angler's Retreat. The decor was just right; not over done, very tasteful. The bed was comfy as were the pillows. My husband loved the recliner. We brought our... More

Every year for ~15 years I've stayed at the Fountain City Motel with a group of 5+ friends for a weekend of golf and enjoy the area. The first year we stayed at a hotel in Winona and after that we have stayed at the Fountain City Motel every year after. We have always loved this place. Wonderful service, absolutely... More

I stay at the Fountain City Motel a few times a year and it never fails to impress. The rooms are clean, the owners are kind and friendly, and the view is wonderful. It is also evident that rail transport is alive and well.

Stayed at this motel with group of friends while touring winerys on the River Road. I picked this hotel based on the positive reviews on tripadvisor - and they were totally right. We had the Uncorked room and the Cabin. Both rooms were very clean, with comfortable beds, good showers, and a separate sink area with large counter. Rooms included... More
