This motel is part of Sands Beach Resorts. We didn't choose it; rather we were assigned to it when booking a motel room with them. We stayed here for two nights on 4th of July weekend and had a great time. The room was in perfectly clean condition and smelled fine. Yes, the fixtures were dated, but there was nothing... More

Stayed one nite here.The rooms were so musty smelling.The towels were so thin you could see thru them.The pool was actually green with slime on the bottom and sides. Some kind of small critter ran over the roof all nite, or there was a mouse in the ceiling. No coffee in the AM...had to go down the street. The beds... More

The rooms at the poolside motel are straight from the 1950s. When we arrived there Eddie the "concierge" was smoking a cigarette and most likely drinking an adult beverage. He checked us in and explained that there was a shortage in towels. When we got to the room, I was glad that I brought a comforter, a quilt, and pillows.... More

If you go to Geneva on the lake you should not expect high class accommodations. Dians is no exception. The staff were very strange, AMD so were most of the guests. They advertise a heated pool, but it is not heated. The rooms are strange, decorated with nick nacks from the 70's. The bathrooms are small and the one we... More

We had a similar experience as the review from bigbrownguy. We were also greeted by a man smelling of alcohol and entered into a room that was old, but seemed like it was somewhat clean. The bathroom, however, was gross. Unfortunately we came on a holiday weekend and there were no other places with vacancies (that looked like they might... More

My wife and I planned to stay at the state campground in GOTL, (Geneva-On-The-Lake), but due to heavy rains all week before our weekend, the campground flooded and the state workers called and said they had to cancel our stay. I then called Dian's and booked a room for the weekend. She said the flooding wasn't bad up on her... More

We just left Dian's Poolside Motel. When you are in Geneva on the Lake in Ohio be sure and stay there! It is a very relaxed atmosphere. Clean sheets, hot showers and all the amenities. You will not be staying at the Ritz, but if you want your motorcycle to be safe this is the perfect spot! Close to the... More
