This motel is a train wreck. First they charge you a $10 "online booking fee" when you arrive. This is known to most travelers as a resort fee (for sure not a resort), but no they don't even lie about it, they call it an online booking fee in order to recoup what it costs them for another site to...

Well, it gets the job done. Stayed in a room with two queen beds and it was adequate. It's just across the street from the lake, and a very short walk from the main drag, so the location is the key. Not cheap, but for the lake not expensive either. Rooms are old and not the least bit updated. They... More

I've visited Lake Geneva a number of times and stayed in other hotels. This trip was spur-of-the-moment, and our favorite place was booked, so we decided to give Harbor Shores a try. It has a great location on the lake and in close walking distance to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. I booked a "King or Queen Lake... More

The hotel has a great location. We paid extra for a lake view...which in the winter is a bit funny, but we did watch ice fishermen and some dogs enjoying some expercise. The rooms have dishes and a Keuring with 2 complimentary K Cups. Very nice set-up along with the refrigerator. Heating unit was a bit noisy, but nothing that... More

So the place was very nice and I imagine in the summer it is beautiful. The room we had smelled a little like it use to be a smoking room and the continental breakfast was very light but it was a still a nice stay. Having the restraunt in the lobby was great.

I am very late in writing this review. We stayed here last July. It is conveniently located in Lake Geneva. We were able to walk anywhere we wanted to go. The staff at the front desk were great and extremely informative. The room was a little outdated but was clean. The kitchenette would be convenient for a long stay but... More

We have stayed here before as we like the location. However, we did have some issues with this stay. We had a lake view room. But, the first room we were assigned had problems with the heater. It would run hot, turn off, then run cold. We had maintenance come up to look at it, and were told it was... More

I loved the room with lake view and terrace. The sunset was absolutely beautiful. Like having little kitchenette in room, with sink. Even though small, it was very appropriate while traveling with kids. Room not so spacious, but very comfortable.. Friendly staff and very satisfied with the value.

I did a one night stay for work and ate at Gino's (separate review for them). I had multiple issues during this stay. Check in was slow as the girl thought I had pre-paid my room.
