Was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and how friendly the staff and owners were. King size bed was comfortable. Micro wave, fridge, coffee maker was a nice extra as well. Found our motel to always stay at when you go to Geneva on the lake!!

We were looking for an inexpensive room within walking distance of all the attractions of Geneva on the Lake, OH. After looking on line, I found this motel. The rooms are small, but they're very clean. My only complaint was the bathroom was tiny with a small shower.

We stayed in the Anchor Motel. Walking distance to the strip, bars and restaurants. Motel very clean, just updated. Full bed which was small for a couple but was clean. Bathroom extremely clean and newly remodeled. Once you park your car you can walk to restaurants and bars on the strip with great bands and fun. There are not very... More

A coffee maker and everything you need to have a cup! Free Wi-Fi, Direct TV and nice size fridge. This is a very nice place to stay. The owners Cathy and... More

The biggest draw of this place is location. Perfect location right on the strip. If you are looking for a Hilton quality hotel in Geneva,you're not going to find it. Our room had old wooden paneling, and a free standing plastic shower enclosure in the bathroom. Still,they do have Direct TV and Wi-fi. It's good enough.

This is a motel right out of the 60s. Just a basic sleeping room with very few amenities. The shower was barely large enough to stand in and the tv was the size of a laptop monitor. No maid service, no pool, not even a hair dryer! The owners were quite pleasant but definitely taking advantage of the shortage of... More

We stayed one night. Quiet. Clean, though vent in shower was about to fall off. A basic strip motel that is probably noisy in summer. On a weeknight and off-season, the price was a bit pricey. The mascot dog, Cooper, was nice.
