Fountain City is a very small town in WI. Fountain Motel is the only Motel in town. We were not sure what to expect, but wanted to stay in town to visit our son, who lives in Fountain City. This is the classic motel design where you drive up to your room door.
When we arrived an envelop was taped to the office door with you name on it and our room key inside. The owners wrote that they were at church and would be back in about an hour. We had a fun walking around this nostalgic town and had a pint at a very nice historic Irish pub called Fountain Monarch Public House. When we returned the owners were very helpful and friendly giving us advise on all the are restaurants and sites.
Our room had a up-north lodge decor. The beds were comfortable the room was adequately sized. The bath room was larger then some hotels. Shampoo, soap, and hairdryer were provided. It was clean throughout.
There is a very basic motel with no continental breakfast. We paid $60 per night. If you want to stay in Fountain City I would not hesitate to stay at the Fountain Motel. If you want something nicer or more similar to the standard hotel experience in America, I would look elsewhere. We will stay here every time we visit our son in Fountain City.
