We stayed at the Geneva Inn for a girls' weekend trip. My best friend and I shared a double room facing the parking lot because the rate was very good. However, having seen their lake-view rooms, I would definitely splurge for one of them next time. Our room was nice - clean, had a good-sized closet, great sink area with... More

We have stayed here several times in the past, and happily, there are few surprises. I thought they did a renovation a few years ago, but things look pretty much the same (decor, furniture, room layouts, etc). Everyone from the front desk to the wait staff are pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. A few suggestions--upgrade your dvd players (the... More

My husband and I always stay in a suite on the lake side of the building. it has a beautiful balcony, with breath taking sunsets over the lake. The dinning room is on levels so every table has...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for NYE. We had a lakefront room & a NYE package. The room was large, comfortable and with an amazing bathroom with separate shower and very deep, whirlpool tub. The balcony is amazing and the view in wonderful. The hotel itself was very well appointed with festive holiday decor. The NYE party... More

I stayed at this hotel shortly after it had been renovated, probably 1990! But for several times and years after my initial stay. The staff, management, chef, SUITES, were exceptional. I was extremely tired the first time I stayed and they took care of every one of my initial needs, food, pillows, flowers sent to the room, everything a woman... More

We simply are putting this out there as we believe if one is intending to spend five hundred dollars for a suite - one should indeed get the "suite" quality they are paying for. First off, the entrance is lovely and the hotel is very clean so that's a huge plus as appeared to be the entirety of the hotel!... More

The rooms are very large and the area is beautiful. That said, for the price point, the old wallpaper and very outdated bathroom were a big disappointment. The hotel was less than half full and they wouldn't give us a lake view.

Six high school friends stayed here and we were all very pleased. Rooms were large and nicely furnished. When we were unable to get in for the first night of a two- night reservation due to air travel cancellations at O'Hare, the manager allowed us to cancel the first night without question. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast.... More

We stayed 3 nights and found it to be comfortable and relaxing. We had a balcony facing the lake. They have one of the best views of the lake according to some friends who have a house in town who visited us. Live music at the restaurant on Friday night. A cold breakfast is included which has hardboiled eggs, ham,... More
