We love the Cove and have stayed many times, in the different seasons. It's right in the heart of things, you can walk to everything, great pools and a walk in water area that you can sit on in a low chair and just be cool and tan..Cabanas for an extra cost and a small walk up tiki bar.

Great weekend to pack up the kids and hit the pool! It was nice to be able to relax and have the kids swim, watch movies, order in pizza. Great family time. Looking for some time away call and book your room now. The Belle Lofts and Dover Suite are great for a family of 4-6.

You'd get the impression from many of the reviews that this is a special place. In truth, I found it to be anything but that, and my rating is more precisely between 2 and 3 stars I booked an " anchor suite" for one night over the holiday season. It did have a counter bar along with kitchen appliances, and... More

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 The room was in such need of repair and so outdated😫😫😫😫.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
