Very nice room and amenities. Continental breakfast a cut above most with some waiter services, coffee ,etc.
Excellent dinner and fantastic deserts, salted caramal crunch cake and Cheesecake specifically.
Very nice and helpful staff.
Choice of jet tub in bath or soaker tub in the room.
Nice view from the balconies; however the wood chairs are the most uncomfortable chairs I can recall setting on at any location, beach, or wherever.
Things like biking and spa services are not within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms to top floor and facing the lake.

Over all it was awesome to stay there for our honeymoon. However our included dinner was not up to par or didn't seem to reach the standards of the establishment. Our steaks were extremely fatty and we felt because our dinner was a package deal that we were extremely;y rushed through our service.

Dear Scott B,
Congratulations on your Wedding, and thank you for joining us on your Honeymoon weekend!
I am sorry you felt rushed during dinner; there is no excuse for that, as our servers do try to pace meals according to guest wishes, and the package includes a proper gratuity.
We hope to see you again soon!

We spent the night at Geneva Inn following an event hosted by an investment advisory group with which we do business. I agree with earlier reviewers that the room furnishings are a bit dated, but the room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the room, even though it overlooked the parking lot, was exceptionally quiet. We slept very well, and that is unusual for me when I'm away from home.

The free continental breakfast was as you'd expect: some fresh fruit; assorted breads, muffins and a few small Danish rolls; a choice of several cold cereals; yogurt; milk and coffee.
Nothing spectacular, but just what it purported to be -- a free continental breakfast.

I would return to the Geneva Inn without hesitation. The location offers a beautiful view of the lake and is removed from the busy downtown. The dining room is lovely. We enjoyed a very good buffet dinner with our large group, and appetizers served earlier in the evening were excellent. Because we were guests of the group, I cannot address the value received in the dining room. I do know that we had a memorable experience.

Upon first arriving at Geneva Inn, we were struck by the quaint, quiet B&B feel to the inn. Staff at the front desk were wonderful. Very gracious, helpful and flexible. But our two rooms, which were the only ones in the inn with two queen beds, did not have a balcony. Wished we would have known that. In addition, the first room definitely smelled of musty, moldy air. We complained and unfortunately, nothing seemed to be done to allleviate the smell. Interestingly, the second room, which was right next door, had no musty or moldy smell. On the bright side, the dining room and breakfasts were wonderful. Great views, great coffee and a big continental buffet. Staff were wonderful and there a small table outside our room with fresh coffee in the morning. Would definitely stay again, although not in the two rooms we had.

Dear Yulie 4,
Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent visit to The Geneva Inn. We are delighted that our staff impressed you.
I am sorry that they did not offer to open up and air your room; the rooms without balconies should be aired regularly, and I have spoken with our housekeeping department about it.
We hope to see you again soon!

We were invited to a cruise and dinner at Lake Geneva. We stayed at the Geneva Inn and also experienced dinner and breakfast there. The facility, staff and foods were excellent. It has a spectacular view of the lake.
Thank you!

Beautiful setting, good food, comfortable rooms with balconies; time to update decor. Not timeless Lake Geneva home, nor current lake energy. Caught somewhere in the middle with pink floral/dark green and oak decor, making it a country inn rather than a lake inn. Could be the most fabulous place on the lake. Fireworks at other end of lake.

Dear Admktggirl,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit to The Geneva Inn, and we appreciate your kind comments!
Our decor was planned to evoke an English Country Inn, and we have made changes over the years, and will continue to do so.
We look forward to seeing you again!
