We recently stayed at The Cove for a weekend and had three middle school kids with us. We rented a one bedroom with a separate pull out sofa and a kitchen with an eating area. The furnishings are dated and the place harkens back a bit to Miami Vice stylings. But, It's clean, comfortable, and is in an outstanding location.... More

We stayed here for a wedding, the rooms are all different and some are in need of some updates.This hotel does have a wonderful location, we didn't need to move our car after we parked it. I would recommend this hotel if you are not looking for luxurious accommodations. The housekeeping ladies did a really good job.

This was my 14th year visiting Lake Geneva and staying at The Cove. I've stayed in rooms from the 1st floor to the 4th floor over these years. They have always been well taken care of, and the staff has been a pleasure. The indoor pool and outside pool options are great. Downtown is just two blocks away, and Sprecher's... More

ShanOC, Thank you for sharing your comments regarding your 14th visit to The Cove. Apparently we need to consider "broom parking" in the future. A+ for creativity! We look forward to seeing you next year if not sooner. Todd B. More

I liked that The Cove was only 1-1/2 hours from Chicago. Is also in a great location to walk to Main St. It is titled as Luxury Condominiums but I could only give 3 stars because of the staff who were friendly in the hotel and adjacent restaurant. The décor is from the 80's and looks like it was bought... More

We viisted the Cove Lake Geneva this past weekend. This would be our 13th visit. We love this place because we can park our car and not get back into until we leave. We love walking the downtown area. We had a great room #322 and would definitely request this room again. The only things we can say negative would... More

This hotel was marketed as a 4 star resort and it is probably a 2-3 star at most. Most of the hotel has a very musty smell as you will read on reviews on other sites. Our room smelled very moldy. Although the front desk offered to have someone come spray our room down, we felt the chemical smell would... More

NancyMarie, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Unfortunately, the 2 week May Flies can be a pest for a brief period. Our staff takes great pride in our cleanup efforts daily. I regret that we missed the mark during your stay. Todd B More

So much fun! Great atmosphere, pool, and close to downtown! We had friends coming in from Chicago, Minneapolis, Madison, Indianapolis, and Iowa! It was the perfect central location for everyone, and not to mention, it was a blast!!!!!!! Highly recommend.
