Spent Venetian Weekend in Lake Geneva at The Cove. Our room rate, for a "one bedroom" unit, averaged about $300/night. The quality of the property did not justify this rate. While the location of this property is excellent, it's clear that the owners have been putting off regular and necessary maintenance. The room was not in very good repair: the... More

I have been going to The Cove since it opened and it saddens me to write this review. They put me in a place that had terrible décor, the bathroom lock was broken, one of the blinds were off and the other two were a different size/color. The smell coming from the restaurant/pool area was awful. There was a hole... More

We stayed at the Cove late last weekend with another family. The Cove advertises themselves to be "luxury" condominiums so it had to be perfect, right? NOT!! Maybe they were luxury when they were built...but it's certainly not the case any longer. This property is in desperate need of general maintenance and updating. Numerous things wrong with both of our... More

Return to 1985. If you would like to revisit the 80's stay here. Our room actually had vhs tapes in it. Please view our photos, as the ones on the website are not representative of the accommodations. The oder in the room matches the photos. It did have a jacuzzi tub in our room, to bad the hot water ran... More

I visited here just this week. The first room they put us in smelled so bad and the blinds were missing a few and one even fell as I was trying to open them. Oh and let's not forget that it was on the first floor right where the house keeping was. Anyway I went to the front desk and... More

Really love the location this is our fourth year coming to the Cove. Love that the town is within walking distance, the indoor and outdoor pools are great. Sprecifers is great food and the restaurant is connected to the Cove. There's a fitness center, game room ( could use some newer games), laundry room, full service kitchen in the rooms,... More

Our stay at the Cove was great. When making my reservation, I explained to the staff that my husband & I were getting away for our 15 yr anniversary & that this was a special trip for us. We were given a very nice room (Unit # 238) that was away from all of the hustle & bustle that can... More

I used to come here with friends about 15 years ago, we always had a great time. I brought my family here this past weekend, what a disappointment. The hallways had the same dated carpet, but now it's stained and smelly. Down by the arcade and the indoor pool you have to hold your nose....it smells like vomit.This area should... More

Dirty, smelly and outdated pretty much describes the Cove. The check in was the first indication of things to come. We waited 40 minutes for our room to be ready, a one bedroom suite. My daughter and her family waited nearly an hour for their 2 bedroom suite. Our room was barely adequate, but there were holes in the blankets... More

Nice big room, loved the kitchen, and how close it was to the beach. There are things that need to be upgraded in the hotel and room but it didn't affect us enjoying our stay. The full kitchen was nice. The price is a bit high but when we factored in food (we cooked in instead of eating out), parking... More
