We were on a bike tour. This modest motel was very comfortable, clean and very affordable. The owner was very helpful. I mailed him a box of clothes and toiletries, he mailed it back in a timely fashion, which was a great convenience. The town has good places to eat and nice views of the Mississippi.

I am going to start this off by saying if you are looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not it. Keep driving! What I will say is that we enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were comfortable and clean. This is an older hotel, there are little things that can be done here and there, but overall... Good,...

staying at this motel was a fantastic experience. The rooms are large with all the amenities fridge,microwave,coffee maker. The rooms are theme decorated, each room is different and exceptionally clean. Updated with flat screen tv ect. The grounds are well maintained. Set back from the main road gives it a secluded and quiet feel. The owners and staff are very...

Needed place to stay for two nights along the river. Don't really like the "chain" motels. My wife and I both enjoyed our stay here. Great , clean, comfortable rooms. The owner was extremely friendly and had the knowledge of area to recommend a number of great places to eat. Had a very pleasant stay here.

My wife and I were cruising up the Mississippi on the Wisconsin side and needed a place to park it for the night. We booked a room here, and it was truly remarkable. We've traveled extensively and have stayed in a wide range of accommodations, from rather slimy Motel 8's owned by foreign entities who care very little about service...

My husband and I stayed at the Fountain City Motel over Thanksgiving weekend. We were in the Train-themed room; the room was a generous size, with two double beds. Everything was spotlessly clean, which is a high priority with me! There was more than enough hot water for showering as well, always a plus and not always true of smaller...

Full disclosure - I have been staying at this motel for 30+ years, across three owners. I stay here each autumn for about one week and always look forward to our next return. Located 400 yards from the Mississippi river, the Fountain City Motel is a great place to stay. I believe the largest positives are the cleanliness of the...

We stayed at the Fountain City Motel Oct 9 and 10th. It was a last minute reservation a s everything up and down the Mississippi was booked. They had a cancellation and we had the Harley Davidson Room. We don't own one, but loved the room. It was clean, nice location, and great hosts. When we checked in, the owners...

Small motel run by a great couple. Spotlessly clean. Great showers. Comfortable rooms and beds. Biker friendly. Themed rooms which all 3 couples loved. Excellent ideas from owners for sightseeing, restaurants, rides, etc. Even had a little gazebo and fire pit for us to use. Can't wait to go back. It was wonderful.

Small independent motel with friendly owners who take good care of the property. The rooms are fine maybe a tad small but nice bathroom area with separate sink and vanity. Tub/shower was a bit worn and in need of replacement. Room was clean. Wish they had a king bed instead of the queen but maybe that was just a feature...
