A perfect getaway a couple hours from home. We've been here a few times and will keep coming back every chance we get. This last time we stayed for my birthday. Arrived before check-in, no problem... Our Lake View Suite was ready. We enjoyed an amazing dinner over looking the Lake, followed by some R&R on our balcony followed by... More

I have been coming to Lake Geneva for many years and I have been staying at the Geneva Inn for 19 years. It is an excellent establishment. The employees are friendly, helpful and kind. The amenities are great and the restaurant view and food excellent. For peace, quiet and relaxation this is the place to be.

The receptionists did not go out of their way to greet us as guests of the Inn. After returning from a family party, we were looking forward to a glass of wine on the patio. We were abruptly told by the first hostess we could not because a party of twenty-eight were occupying it. The second hostess said, well let's... More

Dear Clement, I am glad to read that Christian offered you the friendliness and good service that you expect and deserve, and also that you appreciated our morning breakfast staff.

This was our first stay at the Geneva Inn, but will not be our last! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a very clean, quiet inn with great views of the lake! Yes, the decor is a bit outdated, at least in the public areas, but everything is well kept and clean. Room price includes a nice, although unimaginative,... More

We've been visiting Lake Geneva for years and this easily is among the best places to stay. It offers unparalleled views, easy access to the shore path and a great staff. We took advantage of the two-night package. We enjoyed the little touches like free appetizers upon arrival, a rose and bottled water. As part of the package, we received... More

We stayed at Geneva Inn for a family reunion weekend after a memorial service... and we all grew up on Lake Geneva but the family lake house had been sold, so we needed an alternate venue to stay. The Geneva Inn was outstanding! We also had a boat and we were allowed to dock it at the GI pier for... More

Had an enjoyable stay here. Stayed here a lot back in the 90s - nothing has changed since then - including the VHS player in the room. :) Very friendly and competent staff, nice accommodations. Complimentary breakfast was so - so. We actually chose to go out for breakfast the second morning of our stay. All that said, we're coming... More

Very nice room and amenities. Continental breakfast a cut above most with some waiter services, coffee ,etc. Excellent dinner and fantastic deserts, salted caramal crunch cake and Cheesecake specifically. Very nice and helpful staff. Choice of jet tub in bath or soaker tub in the room. Nice view from the balconies; however the wood chairs are the most uncomfortable chairs... More
