“PERFECT”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We were not disappointed in this motel. We read reviews on Trip Adviser and they were right on. Mr and Mrs Z were great hosts. The motel was clean, comfortable and quiet. The owners were not afraid to ask us if we were having a pleasant stay. They knew about the area and gave us good references for meals, shopping and sightseeing.
We stayed there with two other couples and are planning to return next year. Do not be afraid to stay at this property because it is small and not a chain.
Thanks for a great weekend.

Room Tip: All are nice.

I went to Lake Geneva with a friend of mine and we had a wonderful stay at Lake Geneva Motel. The owners were welcoming and told us how to get around. The motel room was very clean and quiet. The bathroom seemed newly remodeled and the room itself was inviting. The beds were very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others. The price is quite reasonable as well.

During my Lake Geneva getaways, both for business & leisure, I've been staying at the LGM exclusively for almost 15 years now. It's the best motel in town, by-far. Location is excellent, just a couple blocks from the lake and downtown. Restaurant and mini-golf are adjacent to the property. The heated pool is exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Several cozy cottages are available in addition to the main rooms. The management/owners are very hospitable, helpful, and continually making upgrades to the rooms in order to maximize the comfort of their guests.

I can't afford the exorbitant rates at the Lake Geneva hotels & resorts...but even if I could, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The LGM is a terrific value for the money. Close to downtown, safe, quiet, cozy property, a clean pool, memory-foam mattresses, flat-screen TVs with hundreds of channels including free HBO, clean rooms with clean microwaves & coffee-makers, etc, etc. It's not "the Hilton"...but if you prefer clean motels with a friendly atmosphere rather than high-priced, impersonal castles, then look no further. The LGM is one of those rare motels which feels more like a hotel...and I've met many fellow quests who have been coming back for many years. That says a lot about a motel. And I speak from experience, since I prefer to stay in motels only and have stayed at many different ones throughout the upper-midwest. The LGM ranks at the top of my list.

Room Tip: The little cabins are especially cozy (not available during the winter months, unfortunately).

We went to Lake Geneva for our wedding anniversary and did not have a reservation. All hotels were booked and very expensive. Lake Geneva Motel still had vacancy and we were very pleased we stayed there, as the room (cabin) was nice and clean, the place was quiet and the staff very pleasant. It was exactly what we were looking for. There is also a mini golf on site and a nice pool. I would definitely stay there again.

An older place, pretty well kept and quiet. Needs some TLC - especially the room we stayed in. Cracked tiles in the bathroom, little bit of mildew in the shower but otherwise clean. Walls were thin, we didn't have any trouble hearing the neighbors. Owners were very helpful with maps and information about the area.

We have visited here for several years and are always pleased. As other reviewers note, the owners/managers are extremely helpful and keep the place in great shape--especially for a "budget" motel. The pool, while small, is a beauty. Well kept and a great place for kids and adults to hang out, as a nice alternative to the always-crowded nearby lake beach. There's a two-night minimum in the summer months, but it's worth it to better experience the Geneva Lake area. Unlike other motels, it's a fairly short (10 minute) walk to the middle of town.

Room Tip: Several options: single room cabins or motel clusters. We've been happy in motel clusters and ha...

I went to the Lake Geneva Motel for my Niece's wedding. It is a wonderful place - the rooms are clean and quiet. The property is relaxed. The owners are wonderfully friendly and make a point to help you find anything you need. A great, affordable, way to see Lake Geneva.
