We spent two nights at the Harbor Shores. We were greeted by an amazingly friendly front desk attendant. This young girl could give lessons to the rest of the world on how to greet guests and make guests feel welcome! Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The room was clean. I was a bit turned off by strategically hidden... More

After reading some of the recent and negative reviews, I began to question if we should cancel our reservation and go somewhere else. I am SO glad we didn't!! Harbor Shores was GREAT!! We had requested a lake view and what a view it was!! A five star view!! We were on the 5th floor. At first they gave us... More

My husband, daughter, and I spent Sunday night at this hotel. The staff allowed us to check in early, and she also offered coupons for boat rentals and gave us a card for priority seating for dinner at Popeyes. The room was nice and clean, and it had a small balcony overlooking the lake. The balcony and lake view was... More

While some of the rooms could use sprucing up, this hotel has never failed to be clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Nice common areas; full local information available; FANTASTIC Giordano's pizza ON SITE! The views are unbelievable and the location is fantastic. Never used the pool but it looks adequate for those that prefer chlorine over the... More

This hotel needs a serious case of update. The rooms are ugly and damp and the smell of the hallways is unpleasant. The only redeeming factor is it was fairly quiet. Hot water, yes. View, great. Bathroom sink space was good. The bedding seemed fresh but the towels (albeit clean) smelled of bleach and were very rough. Main room door... More

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.
