I have stayed at the Cove several times. We had rented three rooms. I will note, each room is different. This is a property where a lot of people own their individual units and rent them out. Therefore, the decorations can be quite different. However, overall the rooms were great. I like the location of the Cove, it is within... More

I should have read reviews carefully before reserving. $240 for one night. Todd, the general manager, should change his review responses. I am not sure if they just laid off 20 maintenance people or just gave up. Unless major changes, this is definitely not as described. Checked in at 3:30. Pulled up to front, was greeted by a group of... More

I have never stayed at the Cove in Lake Geneva nor had any of the girls that I was with. I had no expectations for our room or the property. I was not there for the check in process or I would have asked a few more questions. This is a condo/hotel property and our condo is owned by someone... More

The Cove advertises Luxurious, this is not the case. It is more an average hotel that needs some serious updating. The rooms are a bit musty but quite large. The pool is very nice and the location is pretty great, right near the lake and downtown. It also is attached to a Specher's Restaurant. We were excited to us the... More

Decent hotel. Close to the lake. Staff was nice. This hotel was by no means a dump, but it certainly isn't worth the $200 - $300 per night pricing. I booked a two bedroom suite, and they tried to put me in a different room. It wasn't until I produced my confirmation that they made an attempt to get the... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom loft the weekend of their Venetian Festival. The Cove is in a prime location across the street from the park and lake. Our view from our 3rd floor room was the parking lot. The room was clean but showing signs of age. The couch was a futon and not a couch at all; very uncomfortable... More

We were looking for a location that would accommodate our family units and this was the only option for multiple bedrooms. The hotel appears to be managed condo properties and so the interiors & conditions of the individual apartments vary. Our 1 BR suite was in excellent condition and decorated very nicely while the 2 BR, 2 BA suite was... More

This resort is in a prime location right off the strip in downtown Lake Geneva! The entire staff did everything to make our stay enjoyable.
