This is truly a little gem in Lake Geneva. The owners are really cool and accomidating to your needs. The rooms are updated and very nice like a little apartment. The beds are comfy too. We never stay in motels but this is more like a hotel. My brother and I both enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here... More

Don't let the word Motel scare you away from the Geneva Wells. We stayed 2 nights in a 2 queen bed room with kitchenette. The rooms are fully updated and very clean! The beds were comfortable. There is a nice two person table. The fridge in the kitchenette was full size. We went in the winter so we did not... More

I came to Lake Geneva to drive a my best friend to her cancer treatments. I planned to stay at a hotel to minimize my friends stress. I found the Geneva Wells Motel on line and booked my first stay mostly due to the competitive pricing. I found it to be quiet, clean, attractive and at the same time no-frills... More

What a great find in popular Lake Geneva! I thought we were out of luck trying to find a room for one night at the last minute. All of the resorts were filled up and very expensive for one night anyway, the B&B's I looked at required more than one night stay. Other hotels had openings, but much more expensive... More

The rooms were updated and clean. The family operating the motel is incredibly nice and helpful. We had no issues. There was an outdoor swimming pool, which we did not get a chance to use but looked incredibly well kept and clean. I will be staying here again.

We came to visit my brother who lives nearby but did not have room for us to stay with him. We didn't want to pay an outrageous price since we would be there a minimal amount of time. This was the cheapest option we found for a place that wasn't a dump. I still think $165 was an insane amount... More

This is my kind of place. It's not very fancy but the rooms are clean & comfortable. The owners are new & I could really tell that they're working hard to make this a great place to stay. I know the beds were all new & it was obvious that the rooms had been updated w/new flooring. Additionally the grounds... More

Family owned and operated, friendly honest service, fair prices, nice clean well appointed rooms, not snooty - but not a trucker style motel - This is a quaint well maintained old school motel within walking, bicycling or a few minute drive of any attraction you'd want to visit in Lake Geneva Wisconsin.
