The hotel is across the street from Geneva Lake and is about 2 blocks from both the public beach and downtown. There are a few great restaurants within walking distance.
The room was clean, but outdated. For example, the bathroom used both gold & chrome fixtures. The wallpaper in the living area was done very poorly. The TV was LCD and had a good selection of cable channels, however, it also was attached to a VCR. There is a $5.99 per rental VHS machine you can get movies from. The pillows were terribly thin. Almost better to just not use one at all.
The room did have a nice balcony with 2 chairs overlooking a parking area and a city park. It was nice that they had a refrigerator with water ($2.50) and a microwave. The complimentary breakfast basket they provided had bagels, muffins, orange juice, granola bars and fruit cocktail cups.
The hotel has a nice bar that has windows overlooking the lake. The service here and at the front desk was prompt and friendly. Check-in and check out were fast and my reservation was accurate. The slightly bad experience with an employee was at night when we were told abruptly that the pool area was closed. Would have been better if we'd been told it was closed and asked to leave, rather than just told "pool's closed."
I'd go back, but may want to spend more on a hotel that has been updated and was a bit more luxurious.
