Our disappointment in The Anchor Motel and Cottages is still talked about, My husband and I were hoping for a clean, comfortable place to relax. Good thing I keep the folding canvas chairs in the car. We have been going to Geneva on the Lake for years and always stayed at the Comfort Inn in Austinburg which was very nice... More

My 3 young professional girl friends and I decided to spend the last three nights of summer out of the city at Geneva on the Lake for some good old redneck fun!!! And that is exactly what we got. :) I'm not a big camper...when it isn't 5 stars with room service it's as close to camping I get. We... More

The staff member during at time of booking and at check-in was pleasant. The grounds were nice well maintained, but most the good things... More

My wife and I recently wanted to go up to Lake Erie (hoped to do a little fishing but the weather killed that idea) and decided to visit Geneva On the Lake for a few days. We arranged for a room at the Anchor Motel and Cottages after having a short phone conversation with the owner. We arrived in Geneva... More

We booked one of the cottages at the Anchor for 3 nights and were very pleased. Don't expect luxury - this is definitely a no frills establishment. But if you are looking for someplace quiet and convenient in Geneva on the Lake, this is a good bet. The cottage was clean and pretty well outfitted (bring towels!) The yard/garden is... More

Buyer beware. This motel requires a 72 hour cancellation prior to check in. I say this because there is no statement to this fact on their web site and they have no way to give you anything via email, or any other way for that matter. When we notified them that we would be staying one night instead of two,... More

The two gentlemen running this hotel went above and beyond to make us feel safe. We had problems at a local bar and the owners of the hotel caught word of the problem. They knocked on our door immediately after founding out and assured us they would look out for us. They treated us like family and I would HIGHLY... More

We have stayed at the Anchor on several different occassions in 2009 and the experience was a great one. We traveled to geneva for a few shows with our band and the staff at the ANchor went above and beyond to accomodate. Those who know about geneva know that alot of the Hotels are about the same price wise. I... More

We visit Geneva On The Lake frequently (8 times this year, so far). This is our first choice when planning a visit. We have stayed in the motel rooms and in the cottages. We have always found them to be immaculately clean. (This is our top priority in a place to stay) The owners, Phil and Kathy, as well as... More

My wife and two children have stayed at the cottages on three occasions and I stayed with two other couples on eone other aoocaion. The owners Phil and Cathy are very outgoing hosts.
