Booked a one-night stay at the last minute, and was very pleased. Watching sunset over the lake while on the balcony was fantastic. The location is perfect. Downtown LG is just a short walk. The room was VERY clean, well done housekeeping, and front desk staff friendly. Upon check-in received a VIP seating pass to Popeye's (a favorite place to... More

Too many things to mention but here goes: -Horrible housekeeping, dust everywhere in our room, spiderwebs in corners, the shrubs outside our balcony were littered with used tissue and cigarette butts, the balcony/furniture were too filthy to sit on. -Charge for room coffee....seriously? A buck and a half to have a cup of coffee in my room in the morning?... More

Michael B~ Thank you for taking the time to comment here on TripAdvisor. We are continuously looking for areas to improve our hotel and amenities. Without comments and recommendations from our guests we would be unable to do that adequately. Many of our repeat guests will confirm that Harbor Shores is implementing changes on a steady basis. I apologize you... More

This is my third time at Harbor Shores. By now, I recognize that the property needs work--new pool chairs, faster elevator, renovated lobby, better breakfast, etc. But I keep coming back because the beds are really comfortable, the staff is super helpful, and the location can't be beat. It's also one of the only hotels that offers a one-night stay.

Stayed two nights at Harbor Shores. We had one lake view room and one room with a view of the parking lot. We were on the 3rd floor and our lake view was partially obstructed by the roof of the on-site Gino's East pizza place. Rooms were clean but dated (ca. 1980!) Had a fridge, microwave, dishes, glasses etc. for... More

I come down to Lake Geneva a few times a year and tend to stay an a decent, but economical place. Harbor Shores was both. The location was great, the room was clean. Nothing overly exciting to note, but a decent place and a decent price.

We stayed for a second time early in July but this time we stayed in a lake view room. It was nice to be able to sit and enjoy the view of the lake on the little balcony. The patio furniture was not very comfortable but it served its purpose. The minifridge and microwave are convenient. Bring extra K-cups for... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago after reading the reviews. Wife and I booked rooms with another couple. Upon checking in we were greeted with a long wait at the lobby. Apparently there was a group of about 200 kids staying. Lines to the elevator were long, and the lobby was busy/crammed throughout the day. My wife and her... More

WAAAY OVERPRICED!!! cognizant of the fact that it is ideally located, we would not stay there again. It is soooo in need of cleaning and updating. It felt dirty, the bathroom was probably from the 50's and the fixtures are scored with grey marks where porcelain is wore. The lobby stinks, and is also in need of updating. Staff was... More
