Stayed here for a night. Great location; less than half the price of The Abbey. Stay there if you want the pools, restaurants, and view. Stay here if you want a basic, clean, quiet room with a fridge and microwave. It met our needs. Friendly front desk staff.

It is true that this place is priced well below the Abbey and other area resorts, but beware that it is quite overpriced for what you get. They have a 2-night min now during the summer months but agreed to a 1-night due to a reservation snafu. We waited and rang the bell for someone to come to the front... More

I do apologize about your dissatisfaction at our place. It is always our goal to accommodate our guests to the best ability and in most cases we are successful, considering the guest return ratio of 35%. Unfortunately, the room you have stayed in was one of 6 rooms that still needed to be completed with new mattresses and new flat... More

Four girlfriends, massage appointments (across the street at Avani Spa), and lots of relaxation. We have been doing this annual trip for at least fifteen years, the last ten or so we have stayed here. Great value, wonderful staff, clean adjoining rooms. Just hope everyone doesn't find out about this place, we may begin to have a hard time getting... More

We stayed for three nights and was very pleased (except for the weather!) The room was large, clean & you can't beat the value. It is close to Lake Geneva, the Abbey & a great family pizza restaurant. We would stay there in a heart beat - in fact, we are planning to re-visit (when the snow decides to LEAVE!)... More

Room is clean but very dated, worn and sparse. Lights in room are dim and one lamp had burned out bulb. I requested that the bulb be replaced and no one showed up. Beds have no mattress cover... Just a plastic covering like a child's bed. YUCK!!!!

We stayed here for a night on the Friday night after Thanksgiving. We found it to be clean, tidy, good amenities, comfy bed and really good value for money. It's quite close to the main road, but you can't really hear it.

After researching all the options this one looked good. This htoel is close to the the lake and near everything on the west end.It helps to talk directly to the GM, Zoran rather than going through travel sites. All their rates on this place were at least $150 per night. When I talked to Zoran he accomodated our party of... More

Rooms here are huge and clean as can be. Bed was comfortable and noise was minimal--just footsteps from room above. Checkin and whole experience was good. Got a continental breakfast and recommendations of things to do from the manager. Would stay again if in the area. Was a little out of the way from Lake Geneva, but nice.

The room is simple, big, extremely clean, staff is very friendly. It is in front of the road but no problems for sleep, no noise at all.

This is not a bells and whistles place but it is extremely well kept. The location is perfect. My husband and I visited for an overnite stay during the week in the middle of summer.It is located within walking distance from the beach but I was too lazy and relaxed to walk anywhere. I would recommend this place if you... More
