Took a short trip to celebrate our Anniversary and really enjoyed our stay here! Anna, the front desk manager, was so kind and helpful Loved our patio room since our little dog was a guest, as well! 🙂 The beautiful outdoor pool area was fabulous! And because the weather was a little cool for part of our stay, loved that they have an indoor pool, as well We would definitely stay here again!

Colton Meisinger

For the moment we walked in we felt very welcomed The lobby is very nice A modern looking area with lots of space available for guests

Emma Fitzgerald

Stayed here for an evening and the staff was great Pool was fun and the rooms seemed clean Pretty minimal amenities

Had to go to the lobby for a microwave But they offered a lot of fun things to do like live music and a bar Unfortunately we had the kiddo and missed out but it seemed like a fun offer Great location, easy parking dog friendly

If I could give this a 10 star, I would give it 11! The room was clean, spacious and ready early to accommodate us All 3 features of the pool area were warm and inviting, you couldn’t get our kids out! The staff was friendly and professional from the moment we booked and called with questions to the moment we left, including our requests for assistance a few times The location is also perfect because it is literally minutes away from all of the Lake attractions you want and also minutes from regular shopping in case you want things for your room

We WILL be back


Clean & spacious rooms with comfortable beds, a microwave & refrigerator Quiet hallways and the pool area was well kept The breakfast sandwiches were delicious!My only complaints are that our coffee maker didn’t work, the shower made a loud noise when the hot water was running & the bathtub didn’t drain well

The property could also use more parking if possible Note to the front desk: please make sure to tell your customers that there is a back door they can access if needed Upon arrival, we parked on the far side of the building and dragged all of our luggage to the front of the building, in the brutal cold, just to find out there was a back door we could have entered more quicklyOverall, a great overnight experience and we will be back!

Cheap Family friendly Our room needed the vents in the air conditioner cleaned in order to get it cold in there

Only two of the 5 or 6 lights worked The shelving next to the beds were very dusty, but otherwise the room was very clean The room always seemed damp – our wet suits and towels would not dry overnight The pool is tiny – and I mean tiny Big enough for 4 or 5 people to get wet It truly is a 10-minute walk from the downtown area, and there is a bakery called Poppy right next to it that looks amazing, and a really neat miniature golf directly across the street The location is minites away from everything The staff are friendly, too If you’re looking for a fast cheap get away, this is perfect If you’re looking for luxury, not the place

Nancy Labedz

Lake Geneva Lodge is amazing I have been going here for 7 years now and it gets better each year The owners are so friendly and accommodating they even gave us a welcome goody bag this year They also gave us coupons to do a boat tour

I mean, it’s a pretty normal comfort inn Friendly staffOur room had damp carpets for some reason and smelled like what we could best describe as “wheat”

The outlet by the bed didn’t work The extraction fan in the bathroom didn’t work eitherEverything was clean, just needs some issues fixedAnd the pool was a very nice temperature, but it seems the ventilation was on the fritz because it was so humid in there !!!!

Jennifer Rayna

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at The pool had a lot of chlorine but that’s to be expected The free breakfast was the BEST free breakfast of any hotel I’ve been too! They had omelets with toppings, waffles

large and mini size, biscuits and gravy, sausage patties, 4 different cereals, toast, 3 different kinds of juice, milk, bagels and cream cheese, mini muffins, fresh fruit, Danish and cinnamon rolls individually packaged and I’m sure I’m forgetting something! Something for everyone! Our 2 queen bed suite had a couch with a pull out bed as well and we only paid like $130 a night We will definitely be back!

Brittany Ritchie

Great location to see all Lake Geneva has to offer We had two adjoining rooms, and it was perfect for our family of five We spent every afternoon at the indoor pool

The staff is very friendly and helpful The trolley drivers were very kind to my kids

Kerry Krivoshein

Layout of room was strange

bedroom in front and kitchen and nook in back The roads that wind their way through this vast complex are not labeled well at all, which made it hard to find your way around Even a major road that goes in and out of the complex didn’t have a street sign Registration and visitor areas was great The employees were courteous and helpful

Donald Self

We booked through our Hilton Grand Vacations exchange and felt the property was top notch! We were blessed with a full kitchen with lovely modern appliances, washer and dryer, full bath and walk in shower as well as a wonderful garden tub that fits two Double sink in makeup area as well as in a seperate bathroom Very comfortable king bed and lovely updated furniture

Immaculate! Lovely modern furniture We had a beautiful balcony on the golfcourse with a sliding door off of our bedroom as well as a door to the patio off the livingroom A fireplace as wellThis was one of the older buildings but was wonderfully renovatedThe consLandscaping infront of building very overgrown with tall weeds and the elevater and concrete outside in the walkways very dirty and needed cleaning Walls were thin with the connecting room conversation easily heard, thank goodness they were not in their room muchEven with the couple cons i would not hesitate to stay again Highly recommend this place and cant wait to go back!!

We picked this place bcz they are one of the few places that allowed dogs (not all rooms)The place is very close to downtown so we don’t have to worry about parking and are able to walk there easily The room is cozy

Gary greeted us at the door and he is so nice!I love the plant inside, but the dog thinks the statue is staring at him, and he does not like it 😂

Sammy Windows

Gary was awesome I was late checking in my bad…but he wasn’t bothered I couldn’t figure out how to use my room key and he helped me out

Very cool vibe historical place Dog friendly close to downtown I liked the peace and private pier Felt like home I really enjoyed my stay Wish I could have stayed longer Nice place, walked to the beach Clean and appreciate it He wasn’t mad that we asked a million questions loved our stay!! Would definitely return

Steve Nash

Very nice host, clean and comfortable Great OLED TV, gas fireplace and the lake path is across the street Dog friendly too! It’s a nice rustic 1800s inn, but we stayed at “the cottage” which is a separate house in the back

It’s perfect cozy cottage with nice bathro and shower, microwave and small fridge, a hidden gem Walked our dog across the street to the lake and a block down to a boat launch to throw toys in the water for him to fetch, and he dried off in front of thr cozy gas fireplace Simce it was cold out we spent a good bit of our 4 days inside the cottage,, and it was so cozy and comfortable Netflix is included on both TV, perfect retreat that is walking distance to everything in downtown Lake Geneva!

I had a pretty nice stay here Nothing bad enough to remove stars over I must’ve gotten one of the updated rooms since everything was clean and in working order

A negative was there was a strong scent of trash in the room which was unpleasant I could not figure out what caused it The staff were friendly and thorough with the check in process etc The bed was comfortable There were plenty of towels The kitchen was clean and the refrigerator kept things cold The jacuzzi tub worked and the water temperature was fine The fireplace worked well There was quite a bit of noise in the hallway but after midnight it calmed down It’s spring break so that may be why Great location I Definitely enjoyed my stay and I would stay again


There are many pros and many cons to this property I’ll start with the pros The room we booked was very spacious and I loved the full kitchen

The pool area was nice and my niece had fun in the small game room Our room was decently cleaned, the bed sheets and pillow cases looked and smelled fresh and clean and most staff we delt with was friendly The cons I say our room was decently clean because we had carpet in our room that had a lot of stains on it We got an older outdated room and the bathroom had a jacuzzi tub but the paint around the rim was chipped and had a black substance around the rim The only air conditioner in the room was located in the living room which made cooling the bed room sleeping area a little difficult, I had to bring a fan from my vehicle just to cool off The walls and door are pretty thin so you can hear almost everything Thankfully guest were not very loud during our stay All in all I would stay again, but would try and request a more updated room

Devin Bohbrink

The staff was super friendly and professional The room we had was completely updated, super clean, with soft comfortable beds We were planning to use the jetted tub, and the water DOES NOT get hot enough

We tried filling it twice, all the faucets were hot except the tub/shower I’m guessing this is a safety feature so people don’t burn themselves, but it makes the tub completely useless We even tried to boil a few pots of water but nothing worked so we had to scrap the idea Otherwise, the place is nice for a quick little getaway We enjoyed having basically a full apartment This is a place for families so noise is to be expected and it didn’t bother us at all If you want a SILENT evening, don’t stay here and don’t complain to the staff because they can’t control people’s kids and again it’s meant for families

What a delightful resort!! The condo room my sister, niece and I shared for the weekend was homey and very comfortable The bed was so comfortable and had soft, warm bedding We enjoyed the pool and hot tub

It was very conveniently located There are some great restaurants close by and it is maybe 15 min from Lake GenevaIt was so pleasant to have a private patio to ourselves!The only complaints we could find were that the parking lot is rather small so it is very hard to find a parking spot, even though we had a handicapped placard Also, my sister was unimpressed by the coffee available for the roomsBut the staff were great! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful The facilities are great and we will definitely be back!!

Amanda Ryman

We had a magical time at the resort! Our condo was adorably decorated, the staff was so friendly, the location was good, and the lake was beautiful The pools (both indoor and outdoor) were perfect for our family I highly recommend this resort

The value was great and it was so nice to have a kitchen and living room to spread out while we were visiting our favorite lake area

Michael Stephanidis

We had a very nice stay here Rooms were good size with a full fridge and griddle Plates and silverware were lacking

We had room on the far side from the lake, but balcony was nice Great view from the outdoor pool There is Cornhole outside near the water also Indoor pool and spa are nice to have for a rainy day Arcade needs to be updated

My friend and I stayed last weekend for a birthday girls weekend and the location was perfect! It was within walking distance to everything We had a balcony that overlooked the creek and the lake and it was so nice The rooms were perfect with an in-suite kitchen and separate room for the bed

The staff was very nice We also loved the 24 hr coffee bar in the lobby and the soup! They have attention to detail that makes your stay special! I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Andrew Pierson

TLDR: Take the owners advice, make a reservation with big business and don’t support small businesses (or at least this one)After reading some other reviews I’m glad to find out I’m not the only person who had to deal with a bad “owner” experience Due to covid exposure and not wanting to spread a viral infection around to other guests or people, we could not make our reservation and I knew finding out the week of would require a conversation with customer support as I did read the policy that states 14+ day cancellations only

I did not expect nor really want to cancel my visit but to re-arrange it to work for another date I figured it was worth a shot and if it’s not possible so be it I however was not ready for the phone call from a “owner” regarding my reservationWhat started as just a question ended with a supposed owner getting angry and frustrated at me for made up reasons they decided to conjure up This person obviously cared very little about customers and more about the money This was validated when they took pretty much the entire conversation as me personally attacking them On top of this I was told that I should support big businesses over small ones if I wanted to have coverage/insurance for a reservationThey literally told me not to support them even though they also stated how if they did this kind of cancellation for everything they would have to close and they had no availability to move or re-arrange my stayAgain I was not speaking to customer service because I thought I deserved a refund but more because I wanted to verify there was nothing they could do for me as it doesn’t hurt to ask the question and I mainly would’ve wanted to move it over cancel it This review is solely based on a return phone call I received from the owner and her handling of situation and how poorly of a job she did

Willow Jergensen

I don’t know how we have never heard of this hotel before we stayed here! This will be me and my husband’s get away spot from now on if we need a get away for the weekend First off the lobby is very cozy and super friendly They had fresh baked cookies and water for us when we walked in

When we walked into our room it was AH-MAZING! A goodie bag waiting for us with more cookies, water bottles, lotion, and chips They had the towels on the bed in a cute folded heart and the bathroom was huge! They also have a swimming pool and hot tub, we didn’t have enough time to use it though (Next time) And unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures but just take my word, this is the best spot in LG It’s located downtown, you can walk everywhere from there and leave your car in the parking garage that’s free for guests 10 stars from me!

I certainly haven’t taken enough photos to do justice to this beautiful resort I genuinely was too busy relaxing and taking in the beauty of everything the resort had to offer It is a perfect place for romantic, family, friends or whatever getaway you need

Lake Geneva is a beautiful place, so there is a lot you can do there I gave the service a 3 star, mainly because of issues at the pool and change rooms The whirlpool was not clean, I actually cleaned it before getting in The change room showers didn’t have soap and the dispensers were broken and had grayish green build up Other than that, the place, people and vibe is fantastic

Shelby Coleman

My husband and I stayed at the Abbey resort for an anniversary stay They allowed us to check in early for a small fee The room was a great size but the patio door was extremely hard to shut

The room also had two separate thermostats and one was hidden so for a couple hours the room was very hot (The hidden thermostat was set to heat in August) The bed was very uncomfortable It sunk down on the edge Thankfully we were only staying one night or we would have requested to move rooms The room did have a nice view of the outdoor pool and located just down the hall from the spa The resort had a nice looking bar/restaurant but it wasn’t open while we were there I anticipate they could make a large profit if they would open it up a little earlier They also have a cool little snack bar/coffee shop located in the lobby They have EV chargers located by the front door The employees were very kind and resourceful

Avita Desai Odoom

We stayed in a suite for our stay Things went wrong from the moment we arrived I called and requested early check in and was told we could come in at 2pm for our room

Upon arrival at 2pm, we were told our room was not ready and check in was at 4pm I explained that I had requested early check in and after front desk radioed housekeeping, I was told “your room will be ready in one hour” We returned to the hotel at 3:30pm and were told yet again, your room is not ready Very disappointing as we traveled 2 hours to come here and had 3 small children with usOnce we finally arrived to our room we noticed a few issues One pull out sofa would not open and engineering arrived to repair This same couch would not close when it was time to leave and again engineering came to repairThe bathtub drain was broken so our children couldn’t take a bath We opted for a shower but the faucet didn’t work properly and when shower mode was engaged, the faucet spewed out scalding hot water while the shower head was lukewarm This was not the experience my family was hoping forWhen I was getting ready to leave i called down to the front desk and asked if there were any luggage carts available and if someone could bring us one (We were previously told that if we needed anything luggage related, bellmen were available to help at no charge) The front desk sounded irritated by the request but said they’d send one up We waited close to 40 30 minutes and didn’t have time to spare since check out was nearing We managed to go to and from the car in multiple trips while carting all kids in and out I’m cold temps When we arrived to checkout, there were 3-4 bellmen standing around and one woman working checkout with a very long line The resort has gone downhill and I’m sad that this was our experience

The shower was amazing The staff was so nice While we were checking out the inside we were lucky enough to run into the owner who was nice enough to give us a full tour She was awesome & knew SO much about the property Highly recommend it to anyone staying in Lake Geneva

We stayed for one overnight for a quick little getaway It was wonderful! We loved our room (The Bridle Suite in the Stables) It was spacious and had everything we wanted

the steam shower was AMAZING! We had our own private entrance and it was very quiet Everything was in walking distance We will definitely be returning for another stay

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here This was our first time in Lake Geneva and we will be coming back! We liked the location, it was walking distance to downtown There were a variety of eateries to choose from

I wish we would have enjoyed our balcony but there were too many mosquitoes due to the heat and rain Overall, a great experience!

The hotel is very nicely located right opposite the lake, and there are rooms with balcony facing the lake The view from the balcony is beautiful The hotel does not have any breakfast or restaurant but there are places around the hotel for that

It is just about a few minutes walk from the heart of downtown Parking is convenient with both around the hotel and underground


The room was spacious and clean, and the staff was friendly The reason I am giving four stars instead of five is because some things in the room weren’t well maintained (ice bucket with a broken handle, water damage or something that rotted away the bottom of the bathroom vanity, the fan that pulls air from the bedroom to the living room did nothing) It was still a nice room for what we paid, in February, but if I had paid summer rates I probably would have been disappointed with the issues I mentioned above

OK, so I’ve never been here as a customer, but I’ve visited here over the years as a vendor (band member) The staff are always great to work with They’re always so nice and helpful

The food they cater at events is always good It’s just a great resort vibe to be here They have this big new party boat that they rent out Our band played on it for a party this week as it drove around the lake Super fun and unique experience!

Daniel Secedi

Beautiful waterfront views throughout the entire resort We enjoyed a 3-day weekend in the winter with plenty of indoor walking around the large loop of buildings connected with hallways The indoor pool is great, especially if you have kids

The hot tub is a nice addition There is also a spa Although the Frontier restaurant was closed, the Lookout Bar was an adequate substitute along with the café They have a wide variety of different sizes and types of rooms in the various lodges

Sarah Halloway

I stayed here with my family as a nice getaway It was fine enough The decor was nice, the arcade was tiny and the air hockey table took so

e of our money without giving us a puck to play with The pool and hot tub were fine too Nothing terrible happened and things were clean Just a little pricey for what was available, in my opinion

The hotel was fantastic! We had a suite on the 3rd floor with a soaker tub It was incredibly clean, the view was unbeatable I would stay here again in a heartbeat All the employees we interacted with were very friendly and always engaging in conversation

Deducted 1 star for food in the restaurant, I would highly recommend not eating there I saw the other negative reviews on the food but I thought I’d take a chanceThe crab cakes were tasty, but the steak, chicken and pasta left much to be desired The main courses were very bland The staff in the restaurant were so kind and attentive thoughI am so grateful that a hotel like this exists with impeccable customer service and friendliness I will definitely book here again when it’s warmer so I can take advantage of the balcony! Thank you to everyone there that made our stay enjoyable

Arrived yesterday and was greeted promptly by a friendly desk clerk The room was ready and was very clean! The view was amazing Great job to the housekeeping team

I made the mistake of leaving the screen door open on the patio and a million bugs checked in on the ceiling The clerk immediately moved me to another room without hesitation and gave that room to the bugs for the night Dinner in the Grandview was excellent, nice atmosphere and excellent views The checkout process was quick and the clerk thanked us for staying Great atmosphere and great customer service I will definitely be back


Went here for our anniversary and it was wonderful! We had a room with a view of the lake and got to see the sunset from our balcony It was a very relaxing weekend Make sure you have dinner at the restaurant, food was wonderful with very tender steak

😋 It’s also not in town, which we really liked because it was so peaceful and quiet Very beautiful and clean Inn We will returnThe ride to town was short, but make sure if you go you pay for parking Signs are not well posted everywhere so if you think you’re parking where you don’t have to pay, you’re wrong We learned the hard way with a ticket plus a service charge

My 2 friends and I were visiting Lake Geneva for a girls weekend getaway We were looking for an affordable option right outside of the tourist area, but we are extremely particular about hotels We decided to go with this hotel based on the reviews and it did not disappoint! Very modern hotel, everything was very neat, clean, and well maintained, and the rooms were very clean and spacious! Free hot continental breakfast is served every morning hot and fresh! No complaints at all about the friendly staff

We noticed Travis, one of the hotel staff members who worked the morning shift during our stay, in particular We were impressed attentive and hospitable he was, he went above and beyond each day to make sure that everything in the cafe/diner area was always hot and fresh and replenished as needed and that the area, including the tables, were always clean! We will be coming back and recommending to family and friends!

Diane Zuber

Very convenient location for Belfey Theater and Dancing Horses Theater Room was clean Breakfast was fantastic

The only reason for the 4 stars was because we could not connect to our Amazon Prime account to watch a movie We had stayed at the Holiday Inn in Milwaukee the night before and there was an option and were clear, easy to follow directions for this right on the screen We called the front desk and they were not sure if there was an option to do this with our phone as the one in Milwaukee had I suggest you call them and offer this option for your guests Other than that it was a nice stay Also wish you had a hot tub!

Chris Parent

After a terrible experience at a place, (Comfort Inn) It was like night and day The Holiday Inn Express in Elkhorn Wisconsin saved the trip! Across the board AMAZING! From the room to the Staff, nothing but praise, especially to Jamie, Who We booked Our stay with at the front desk

Thanks for all Your help and We would recommend this one to Anyone Who is visiting Geneva Lake for Their Vacation stay 😊
