“A nice place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I enjoyed my stay at the Best Western Fountainview Inn. The people at the front desk were courteous and efficient. I was expecting a continental type breakfast, but was pleased to find a full breakfast with eggs, sausage, breads and muffins galore, yogurts, coffee and juices. They had a waffle maker too. I never made it to the pool, but looking out my window at it, the area was kept well, and the pool was crystal clear. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, as it is in a nice area, easily accessible to the highways, and downtown.

I was totally shocked when I got off the highway to get to hotel: at least 10 strip joints, including La Bare RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET! The sign-in contract included section to initial that guests wouldn't have more than 4 people in an in-room Jacuzzi or party excessively. That shows the riff-raff that happens across the street tries to make it into hotel. Lousy fitness room. I asked the front desk where we could get dinner because we arrived at 10 pm and she said all that was in the area was fast-food or pizza delivery. I found a nice 24-hour restaurant a few blocks away (in a good area), a type of IHOP. Got to the room to call for more towels but 1 of the phones didn't work. Beds lumpy. Ran out of food/milk at breakfast but no staff there to get more. Doesn't deserve a 3-star rating.

I have stayed at this hotel twice and have been pleased both times. I have to return to Houston every three weeks and will be staying there each time. The hotel is very clean. The staff is very friendly.

This hotel is very clean, in a quiet neighborhood, with a nice pool and good breakfast. There are plenty of dining options close to the hotel, and easy access to the freeway system. Overall an excellent place to stay.

If all you care about is a comfortable bed - and NOTHING else (including service and amenities and location) - then the Best Western Fountainview near Houston's Galleria should do fine. But a comfortable bed and a clean hotel is the only positive thing I can say about this hotel. The toilet didn't flush very strong and was already backed up when I arrived (a few flushes eventually fixed it). Then the showerhead was fixed at about 5' - I'm nearly 6' tall so this was rather low. The pressure was okay, but to get any decent pressure at all I had to fiddle with the toggle that changes from tub faucet to showerhead. The in-room-internet seemed like it was at dial-up speed and sometimes I couldn't type anything even though there was a cursor. I would have thought it was my computer but the SAME things were happening on the desktop computer in the business center! The eggs were COLD at breakfast, the food variety was not great (little or no fruit), the butter and jams etc... were all stuffed in the small fridge instead of near the bread and there didn't seem to be the excellent variety that Best Western usually has at their breakfasts. Finally, no one asked me how my stay was on the way out - no smile, no thank you for staying, no acknowledgement that I am a rewards member (I really don't care about this, but by that time, all the negative things were really starting to add up). Also, this is advertised as being near the Galleria. It is...but not anywhere the neighborhood. There are several strip joints nearby. Not what I expected. Overall, the individual problems were not, by themselves, horrible. But it seemed apparent to me - by the end of my 3 days at the hotel - that the ownership simply wants to get by with as little effort as possible. In the hotel industry, just having comfortable beds and a clean hotel doesn't suffice (especially at over $100/night!). I love Best Western hotels. This one does NOT meet their usually high standards.

Excellent, clean, well kept, great service, fine breakfast, close to trendy, upscale Gallery area. The hotel is on Richmond Avenue, known as "restaurant row," and also a couple of blocks from more restaurants and shops on Westheimer. Easy, quick access to downtown area via Richmond or freeway. .
