About Fountain Inn

Situated in an ideal location in Van Wert, Fountain Inn is a popular accommodation option among business and leisure travelers alike. Several of the city’s top tourist attractions are at a walkable distance from the family run inn. It is a quaint hotel that offers free Wi-fi, free parking, a heated pool, air conditioning and a whole array of recreational activities for guests to make the most of.

This 27-room property is located less than a minute away from the Cachoeira do Bom Jesus Beach, offering complete accommodation with garden views, with free Wi-Fi and free parking. Canasvieiras Beach is 5 km from La Alhambra. Florianópolis’ city center is 25 km from the property.

Scenario and Challenges

Initially, Fountain Inn carried out their hotel’s day-to-day operations manually. It was restrictive and even the simplest of tasks consumed a lot of time. Once their hotel business started to grow, they had to juggle between manually checking guests in and out, handling the reservations, the housekeeping, the POSs, and everything else!

This eventually proved to be a huge challenge for them on multiple fronts, such as

  • They couldn’t connect to a Channel Manager
  • Online distribution was therefore not possible
  • Operational efficiency was severely affected and hindered
  • They had to be at the property 27/4 to monitor everything
  • They could barely spare any time to focus on guest-centricity

Speaking about how Hotelogix has helped them resolve all their challenges, Dee says,"No more paperwork! My Inn is located far from where I am located and now, I can manage the Inn remotely. Within seconds, I can make price updates, see how the rooms are renting and this helps me to a great extent to stay on top of my business. I know I made the right choice with Hotelogix!"
