The room itself was fine. The bed was comfortable. The issue is the bed was too close to the door. We heard ever little noise from hallway. The room should include A white noise machine. Not sure if we would stay there again.

I wanted to first say that I am glad you enjoyed the Cove, but I am very sorry to hear that you heard every noise in the hallway. This is something that we are looking into, and I can assure you we will have that fixed in the future. I hope that you come back and give us another opportunity... More

We stayed here for a weekend away, and it has very good location to the downtown area of Lake Geneva. It is walkable to everything in the shopping district, and Lake Front. The suite we stayed in had a fireplace, and a kitchenette, so that was a useful bonus. The room size was quite large. We went in the Fall,... More

We were very pleasantly surprised at the size of the accommodations, the proximity to LG activities & shopping, etc etc. Loved everything about the Cove. Hopefully thext time I go back it will be summertime.

This was a great place to get away! We had a girls weekend and only had to drive a little under 2 hours to get just what we needed. It was quaint, relaxing, and overall enjoyable. We were walking distance to the downtown area where there were many options of food and things to do.

The front desk people were amazing. They helped us when we were locked out. Gave great restaurant advise. But I was most impressed with them holding stuff for the wedding party, for when they finally came back from the reception. There would have been a lot of men upset for being charged for their suits!!! I only wish the jets... More

The decor of our suite was very very dated.The sofa had stains on it and when you sat down the bottom almost touched the floor.Our jacuzzi had to be at least 20yrs old very dingy, and the TV that was in the bedroom was nice but to small. Now in relationship to the lake that part was nice because it's... More

A friend and I stayed at the Cove for the first time for the Women's Weekend Getaway, sponsored by the Rotary Club. It was a great location, across from the lake and within walking distance of everything planned that weekend. The room was fantastic - fireplace, whirlpool tub and outside patio (although a bit chilly to enjoy the weekend we... More

We had a wonderful time, the room was wonderful, large, clean with a good view, the King size bed was great. The people at the desk were very nice and helpful. I've been staying at the Cove for 15 years, and always have been satisfied!

The Front Desk personnel were both disrespectful to my 81 year old Parents...The couldn't find their reservation because they spelled his name wrong and then didn't honor a Groupon and tried to charge him full price...You Front Desk personnel are too disrespectful to be at your Front Desk handling guests...Maybe you should have them cleaning rooms!

Spacious, clean suite, though dated. Helpful and efficient staff. A bit noisy late at night, due to nearby partiers. Nice pool and hot tub. Limited fitness room. Great location - downtown Lake Geneva, walking distance to shops and restaurants.
