Love it here, last year came for our 25 year anniversary – wanted to be right in town and it was so fun Staff is amazing, pool and sauna fun – restaurant awesome The view is beautiful

Can’t wait to come again Great night sleep – super comfyNot loud at all which I was worried about being in town on the Lake – I come to relax and I sure did – would highly recommend The security guard man there is so nice to talk to and welcoming Ginos owner is so nice – comes to tables and talks to guests like family

Becky Hart

I gave the hotel a 3 star due to the service of the people at the desk The hotel itself was nice, clean and very close to walking downtown Lake Geneva and the beach Our room was clean and we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the lake

The service however was not good! The front desk could not check us in early at all They could not let us check out later since we didn’t get to check in early Then when I said I was going to leave a negative review all of a sudden they were able to let us check out at 1 instead of 11 So we basically check in at 4pm out by 11am not much of a stay for the price We decided to go to another place The lady in the parking lot showing people were to park was the only staff that was actually nice and helpful We wouldn’t stay again just due to the service

Scott Cheek

Highly recommend the Lake View rooms The view is fun to see the lake, sunset and sunrise, along with general relaxing on the balcony We keep choosing Harbor Shores when we visit Lake Geneva and always enjoy our stay

Room is always clean and bed is comfy The staff at the desk is friendly and can provide suggestions and recommendations for the areaAlso, when staying at Harbor Shores, you get a 10% discount at Gino’s East Pizza on the first floor

Bonnie Pool

We stayed at the bed and breakfast, and it was just perfect The suite was clean, cozy, and so cute! We stayed during a snow storm so we couldn’t get out much to see Lake Geneva, but we will definitely be back to stay again in warmer months to see more of the town! Staff was out salting really regularly to make sure the stairs up to the suite were safe and the parking lot was plowed frequently to keep it drivable The breakfast was delicious, too!

Katie Johnson

The Lazy Cloud is a lovely, cozy, and quiet retreat My husband and I stayed for a few nights after our wedding, and it was the perfect place to unwind The room was so thoughtfully decorated and stocked, and the staff was very friendly

Breakfast each morning was filling and well prepared We will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone who asked!

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

Anne Neuman

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

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

Nikki D

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

Nathan Castelli

My partner and I loved our stay here We stayed 2 nights in April and will definitely be back The cottage itself was very comfortable and had a lot of attention to detail

It was nice to have our privacy and still know the staff would be around if we needed anything The close walk to downtown was great as well The breakfast that was brought each morning had plenty of options and everything tasted amazing The vegan options were carefully selected and delicious We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Lake Geneva

Ailysh Cooper

This place is PERFECT They have everything anyone could want We had wine and cheese included with our stay and it was waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived

The breakfast baskets were great The house was spotless and comfortable They have good temperature controls and a nice bathroom and kitchen area Plenty of towels, mugs, etc They included tea and a kettle in the room which made me happy since hotels never remember to include that Downtown is a short walk away, so you can avoid paying for parking I’m recommending this place to everyone I know!

set c

We really loved our stay here The cottage is a well built, well designed mini home Gas fireplace, huge jacuzzi tub, king bed, waterfall shower, mini kitchen

Very well done Quiet and peaceful We enjoyed the daily basket for breakfast Every day there was something different and it was more like a brunch We also had the romantic package which was worth the cost You can walk downtown too Very convenient location The staff are very nice Just like a hotel, you have daily housekeeping unless you opt for do not disturb It would be great to rent the whole property for an anniversary, wedding, reunionsomething like that There is an outdoor BBQ seating area

Recently updated villas with a contemporary decor and a country style feel We were unfortunately moved from our original reservation of a King Villa to a smaller Queen Villa The bed size is not the only difference between the villas, the overall size of the King Villas are nicer, larger and brighter

The Grand Geneva Resort is under extensive renovations and the lobby bar, outdoor space and lobby restaurant are all currently closedWe played both golf courses- they were amazing and in fantastic condition It was not busy, at times it felt as if we were on this course alone Had an awesome time and the staff was very attentive and helpful Grand Geneva is a great boyz getaway and also a great family getaway

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

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!

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

Other parts of the hotel are renovated, but apparently our room was not The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling, despite signs of glue smeared on top of all the seams The shower head / handheld selector was broken, but maintenance was able to do a temporary fix

We did not have enough towels I was also surprised that there were literally 4 sheets of kleenex left in the tissue box The room and the walls looked old The carpet and upholstered chairs appeared not clean The chairs had some stains The mattress was moving as if it was on a boxspring made of jelloThe pool and hot tub were enjoyable There were only 3 clean towels available in the pool area as well You can see into the workout room from the pool area I saw that the water cooler in there needing to be replaced, tooCheck-in for the guest ahead of me took a while My check-in was not that fast I could have checked in via the app, but the app showed no rooms available for selecting Maybe this hotel only operates during the busy summer season That would explain all of this Thankfully the breakfast did not disappoint

Constance Graska

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

The new updates are stunning The rooms are so clean the grounds are beautiful the pool is great I always feel so welcome and safe there so cozy I can’t say enough about LGL!!! Love it can’t wait until next year!!

Ary Alvarez

The place is lovely We had the Luxury Lakefront King Loft It was so spacious and beautifully laid out

The jacuzzi tub was placed upstairs with a fireplace that we loved They do serve their breakfast in a bag which unfortunately is loaded with sugar I think better options needed for people who can’t consume food with added sugar The issues we had with the room were the candles needed new batteries, dirty stain down the middle off a chair, the sliding door to the shower either got stuck and wouldn’t open or it came off the track But the worst was the water smelled like metal So I could not enjoy a shower, brush my teeth, or the jacuzzi I’m sure these things will get fixed But next time we will find a B&B that serves breakfast with the same price that we paid for

Shannon Richardson

This was my second time staying here The first time was in February When we got there the pool was closed! I asked about it and they said it was supposed to be fixed that weekend

That never happened I thought it was very unprofessional to not let the people know before they arrived The ice machine was not working for majority of our stay The hotel is a bit run down, but it is clean They have the most comfortable beds and bedding The views are just amazing! I learned they have new owners I’m hoping they are going to make things right and fix these issues I also hope they will open the restaurant and serve a true breakfast for being a bed and breakfast

Emily Collins

The air old conditioner is not working It’s 85 degrees out today and our room was very uncomfortable when we checked in at 6:30 We thought that we could let it run and then maybe it would get colder but when we got back to the room it was still hot

The lobby is closed at 8 so we can’t do anything about it I’m also 8 months pregnant so it’s very hard for me to get a good nights rest when it’s this hot in the room The water temperature is either too hot or too cold, the pressure is weak, there’s chipped paint and holes on the wall that need touched up I was really hoping to like this place when we pulled up because of the view…but the room is subpar for the price I feel like we need to get the room discounted Also the pool has a tarp on it and I was looking forward to swimming and we couldn’t do that The pictures on there website are very slim for some reason as well I was just really hoping for more especially because we came here for a baby moon

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!

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

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 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

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

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!

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!

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

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

Should have know when we walked into the lobby and saw the Christmas decorations still up, in June I think that might be the last time the place was cleaned floors dirty, comforter stained, live Turtle tank behind the front desk even needed cleaned

They hadn’t bothered to turn on the A/C in preparation for our stay, so when I did, I wish I hadn’t It smelled very musty too much to write here so called Wyndham, who seemed concerned but asked us to resolve it with the management Still waiting for a call 3 weeks later I feel like at least Wyndham should have stood behind this

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!
