We stay at The Cove at least twice a year to go out downtown Lake Geneva for birthday parties or whatever. It is very convenient because you can walk right down to Spreche's to catch a drink or food or it is located one block down from all the night life Lake Geneva has to offer. Also it is located...

This is our 5th year going to Lake Geneva in October for Dan Patch's haunted hay ride, horse back riding and shopping. We have stayed at many different hotels in Lake Geneva, however, I must say the Cove was the best. We could not believe how big our suite was and the fireplace was a plus. I know the Cove... More

Don't be tempted by the great in town location. A hotel NEEDS to do one thing very right and that is sleep comfort! Our bed was old and had an obnoxious waterproof crinkly mattress cover under rough sheets. Paired with tiny lumpy pillows that the housekeepers throw on the floor while they change the bedding. So, you can't sleep on... More

We have stayed many times usually becuz of the outdoor pool. We stayed weekend of 10-16 on a gift certificate. The room was in such need of repair and so outdated😫😫😫😫. It was actually depressing. You just never know what you will get when you stay there.

Huge room that feels like a suite or even an efficiency apartment. Large seating area with nice TV and balcony, fully stocked kitchen with refrigerator, freezer, plates, glasses, and even wine glasses. However, balcony view is a parking lot, bed is right by the door, and bed TV is small and out dated. Overall room is great and exceeded expectations.... More

I stayed at The Cove on a business trip. The staff is exceptionally friendly and professional. The pool is big and water was warm. I was fortunate to have a discount deal through the business trip, otherwise full price of $300 per night is a bit much. I do not even think there is a continental breakfast associated with your...

Very pleased with the size of the room, the wonderful bedding and the convenient kitchen amenities. Only there 1 night but wish we could have stayed longer. Very friendly staff and reasonable rates...especially for Lake Geneva. Only negative might be carpeting throughout needs refreshing. Susan - Travel Manager Healthcare

The room we stayed in was nice and big. I was there for a Bachelorette party and there was plenty of room for all of us! I would recommend this hotel to any and all people that are celebrating a special occasion. I know my friends and I will definitely be back to The Cove for our next big event.
