“Great stay”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Four of us stopped here on a motorcycle trip to Maine. Owners were very friendly and invited us all back, after we parked the bikes, for a beer. Clean and cozy and perfect for sitting outside your door relaxing after a trip. Easy walk to the downtown area where we had a great dinner at a restaurant the owners recommended.

Room Tip: a newly renovated section had paved parking- perfect for our motorcycles

We stayed for two nights at The Anchor! The room was newly remodelled and very clean. The owners were very nice upon check in. We happened to mention when chatting with them that we were in town celebrating our anniversary when we returned to our room they had left us a bottle of wine and a note for our anniversary. They go above and beyond!

We go to Geneva on the Lake 2 or 3 times a year, but we just found this gem, and this will be the only place we stay. Its conveniently on the east end of the strip, well within walking distance of all the restaurants, pubs and other attractions. The owners are very friendly and its obvious that they take great pride in their establishment. It is extremely clean and very well maintained. Having been in the hotel business, I can say that the large chains could learn lessons from these owners. Easily the best place to stay in Geneva on the Lake!

Room Tip: Easy. Any room. All are extremely clean and very well maintained.

We only stayed 1 night. It's a great location, friendly owners, CLEAN, and loved the rustic pine walls! I would recommend this place to anyone staying in the area. Will be back on a return trip and spread the word about this place.

It is difficult to find good reviews of hotels at Geneva on the lake because so many are older and not updated. Not so with the Anchor Hotel. The motel rooms were renovated over the off season. Our room was small but we expected that... Enough room for a king sized bed and a small table and chairs and tv (with direct tv) and stand. There is fresh paint (so fresh there was still the faint smell of it) on the walls and new carpet on the floor and what must be new beds that were very comfortable.. The bathroom was also new and clean. The hotel is on the far end of the strip but still an easy walk anywhere. Parking right outside your door was convenient. Management was friendly and helped us with a question about the thermostat...Tip: there is a booklet that shows you how to use it in one of the drawers. Remember that this is not the Ritz... nothing fancy...but everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing weekend. A coffee maker and coffee was a nice touch...would return here if we visit Geneva on the lake again.

Went here last year for a family/friend get together. It was great. The location is fantastic. The place is at the far end of the strip, but it is still easily within 15 minutes walking of even Adventure Zone. The owners were what set this place apart from any other place I'd been to. They were extremely accommodating and they wanted to make you feel at home. We had several nice conversations with the owners and learned about the history of the place and what they were planning to do with it. If there was a problem, they do everything in their power to help you out and I do mean everything. Both were so nice to everyone in our entire group (we had a large group). Loved it and I can't wait to get back.

DO NOT go to Geneva on the Lake thinking that it is something that it is not. Geneva on the Lake is a biker haven. The people that complain about the motorcycles obviously haven't been to Geneva on the Lake.
