“Beautiful view....not sure i would stay again.”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

The view is what you go for in this hotel. In general room was very nice and clean. My only struggle was the value. Given the hefty price tag I would expect a bit more. The things that stood out besides the view were breakfast and the "quiet door." I decided to order eggs versus opting for the continental breakfast. The cost $6.00. This was very refreshing to not have to pay $23.00 for breakfast. My room was right by the lobby and I was a bit concerned about noise. At night they closed a door at end of hall between lobby and rooms. This was very nice as it kept things quiet despite location.

That being said make sure to request a room on higher floors away from restaurant. My balcony looked right into the restaurant, not ideal to say the least.

Stayed June 2013, travelled solo

We stayed in a lake view deluxe room. It was much more modern than the pictures on their website and was really quite nice. The balcony was wonderful and the view was well worth the extra money.

Unfortunately, the bed was extremely uncomfortable - extremely hard. The pillows were awful as well as they provided absolutely no support. We did not sleep well and consequently would be hesitant to return. I did not bring this to management's attention as we were in a bit of a hurry in the morning, but mostly because no one bothered to ask how our stay was.

This place has it all, location, view, great restaurant and comfortable rooms.......and a friendly staff. My wife and I enjoy the Geneva Inn enough that we'll spend two or three weekends a year visiting there. Winter, summer or fall we enjoy it whenever we're here.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake are certainly worth the extra money. In the suites only the bedrooms have...

My wife & I have stayed in the suites with a lake view each time. Haven't tried the dinners there but have had breakfast in the dinning room with a beautiful view. We even took a walk along the lake front from the hotel. Excellent A++

This small hotel was very clean and the room was spacious. It was very cozy and not far (about 2 miles) from downtown Lake Geneva. Check in was easy and fast and the continental breakfast had plenty to chose from. The view of Lake Geneva was beautiful!

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor facing the packing lot. It was quiet but not much of a view.

This is a lovely site on Lake Geneva with fabulous views of the lake. Be sure to stay in a lake side room, looking at the parking lot is the other option. There is a free continental breakfast which was certainly more than adequate and there is an option to order eggs if you want. The breakfast prices were certainly moderate, the dinner prices quite high, typical for Lake Geneva. We had appetizers for dinner and that was plenty for us. The hotel is quite expensive but the room was very nice and the deck was generous. There were two comfortable chairs in the room which was also nice (and unusual). The decor in the lobby and halls was a bit dark with too many mirrors. the complimentary coffee in the morning was a bonus!

Room Tip: Be on the lake!
