No peep holes, chains, or deadbolts on the doors. Found the room the be very unpleasant. We did not feel safe and left. There is much more to this story, but I don't want to get to far into the details. I would never recommend this motel to anyone I know. We stayed in the Cozy Reunite Cabin.

I went there for 4th of July weekend with boyfriend and another couple. Having been the holiday weekend the entire town was pretty booked up. Luckily, we were able to get rooms at this wonderful place! People there were so friendly, the small community was amazing, there were BBQs, piknik benches, a small pool, and the neighbors were awesome. The... More

Clean, quiet and a good value. Charming if you can appreciate the retro vacation vibe and the simple things in life. A quick walk down the hill to the lake and the interesting trail that goes around the shore giving you a backstage view of the grand and sometimes historic homes on Lake Geneva. Friendly staff - I have stayed... More

Your experience with Lake Geneva Motel will depend heavily on which unit you’re assigned, and what part of the week you visit. The observed reviews collectively provide truth, but none really conveyed how worn & weary some rooms and areas are. Beware what part you get to experience, and confirm your building & room assignment when you make reservations. Many... More

Small family owned motel that's clean, inexpensive($65) and convenient to down town. We had a king bed room that was dated but still very nice. Another reviewer said "memory foam mattresses and flat screen TV" Our room didn't have either. Our bed wasn't comfortable for us but my parents said theirs was fine for them. Owners very friendly and helpful.... More

A very clean, quiet motel. Room decor is dated but beds were very comfortable, bathroom clean, shower big, TV, fridge, microwave fine. The best was the lovely green space in front of the rooms with picnic benches and a grill. Every room had adirondack chairs to lounge on. The pool was small, but good enough to get cool and the...

I had a very nice experience at this motel. It's an older place, but is very well maintained. I had a single king room that was roomy , quiet and very clean. It is walking distance from the downtown area, so we were able to walk a few blocks for dinner and breakfast.The staff couldn't have been nicer. So overall,... More

Be warned, do not stay at this resort.......sucks big time its not a family friendly place. too much noise at night and people are smoking in non-smoking rooms. Better choice elsewhere. When to complain to staff, they make out they will send someone to investigate, but that never happens.

What a wonderful find. This little gem is a few blocks from the lake and the center of town. A beautiful pool and very hospitable owners. Our California relatives loved the place, said it seemed so retro! We will be back!
