How awful is Pera's Motel? The unsanitary, unkempt conditions aren't fit for a hobo: when you walk in the room the aroma of must and decay fills your nostrils despite the indiscernible air freshener plugged into the wall, the ripped furniture greeting you in front of the TV on a stand so wobbly my toddler could knock it over, the...

This was our third year to return to Pera's. We love the place. It's not fancy but it's clean. We have met so many nice people while staying here from all over. We spend days at the pool. Everyone is so friendly by the end of the day you know everyone there. People sit outside the rooms and play games... More

As a professional travel writer, I was attracted to this "nostalgic" place because they have a colorful, glossy advertising slick. It's a gimmick that lures people in . . . and then they leave. Read the reviews PLEASE. We were given Room 4. The stench of black mold was overwhelming. My companion has one lung and had to immediately step... More

This was not that terrible of a place. Just a little paint and a few minor repairs could make a world of difference. New carpet would be a godsend. Come on owners, put a little money in the place or you won't have a business. The cleaning crew were great and so was the woman at the desk. They were... More

It was the most filthy place I ever seen. So much mold in the bathroom. My sheets were all stained and they did not change them. I would never in my life stay there again. The carpet was so dirty the rooms stunk. Do not stay here!!

We chose this motel for its location to the strip. While dated, the room was clean (other than the orange carpet needing a much better vacuuming). It did have a musty odor but I always travel with air freshener and small candles. After opening windows and airing it out a bit it was fine. The amemities that most of us... More

THE BAD: dirty dirty. Curtains and bedding from the 1970's. Filthy shag carpeting. Black mold on the bathroom walls. THE GOOD: right in the middle of all the action. Roomy. Heated pool that stayed open all night.

The only perk about this place is that is was located in the heart of the strip. Others than that, there were no outlets, no remote, the oven did not work and the floors weren't clean. Our bathroom showers were covered in mold, the bed sheets had stains and the couch looked like someone pulled it out of the garbage.... More

After reading the reviews we were terrified to see what we were getting into. When we arrived we found a very clean mom and pop motel. Yes it is old fashioned but most things in Geneva on the Lake are. The location is perfect....off the middle of the main strip. Everything was within walking distance.The pool,which we used daily was... More
