“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

We stayed at Holiday Inn Club Vacations for three nights and had a very pleasant experience. As mentioned by other reviewers, it is located on golf course. You can check in at the Grand Geneva Resort and have access to all the facilities at Grand Geneva, the water park, pool etc. It is a five minute drive from the lake which is good in a way as you are away from all the noise. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. It even had a small kitchen with all utensils to make a quick meal. The only negative thing I can say is that there is no housekeeping to clean up the place everyday and you would have to pay extra (close to $60 depending on the type of room and service).

Hey there. Thanks for your review. We’re so pleased to hear that your three-night getaway was enjoyable and that we were able to help you relax and get away from it all. Our guests always enjoy being able to access all of the fun and amenities with our partner resort and still be able to relax in the peaceful tranquility surrounding their villas. You are right to point out the convenience of the kitchens. It’s always nice to be able to prepare and enjoy a quiet meal together while on vacation when you just don’t feel like dining out. In regards to housekeeping, we do differ from traditional hotels in more ways than one. One that our guests may notice is that we do not offer traditional daily housekeeping. Many of our guests enjoy the added privacy that this allows them. However, you are right that for a small fee housekeeping services are available on demand anytime. Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you back again soon.

We use trip advisor to plan and review or trips so we are as honest as we can be when reviewing.this hotel/resort is going down the drain.the tv,s are old and make a buzzing noise,the walls are very thin so we constantly heard evrytime someone used the water on both ends of the room.the fan in the bedroom shock so hard we had to turn it off in the middle of the night which woke us both up.the dryer door handle was broken and just put back in the slot meaning that when pulled you smack yourself in the face.checkout is at 10am and they almost denied a later checkout time although the resort was very empty with only a few cars on the premises.we won't be staying here anymore,the first time was ok but now its getting very motelish,there are many cheaper and better options close to the lake.

We are owners in the Holiday Inn Club but this was our first visit to the Lake Geneva property. We stayed there for three nights during the week in early May so crowds were not an issue. The Club buildings are located a much larger property and you must check in at the Grand Geneva main lodge building. This would have been nice to know ahead of time. (The valet parking for check-in was a little over the top in my opinion.) Thank goodness for GPS! We did receive a handy map of all the amenities on the property after we registered. (See posted photo.) The Club units are just down the hill from the lodge and our patio overlooked a fairway and green on the golf course. The view was pleasing since we're golfers. Our unit was very clean with its own jetted soaking tub. There are two sinks/mirrors in different rooms which helped us get out the door faster in the morning. The kitchenette had everything we needed EXCEPT a wine opener. The staff we encountered were always pleasant. We spent most of this visit off the property but we'll definitely be back and check out the amenities next time.

Greetings from Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Lake Geneva Resort. We’re happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As a TripAdvisor top contributor you must know a thing or two about how to really travel the right way. It’s always nice to give yourself a treat and really get away during a vacation season that is not as crowded as others. We apologize if check-in was confusing for you, but we are glad that the staff was able to direct you and answer all of your questions. Thanks so much for posting the pictures of the grounds and villa. Future travelers will surely expect a treat of what they have to look forward to between the pictures and great description you give of the villas. We’re sorry that your villa did not have a wine opener, and we hope that the staff was able to assist you in any needs that arose during your stay. We hate that you were not able to take advantage on the on-site amenities and agree that a return visit soon is the perfect way to do that. We look forward to having you back anytime.

Room was much nicer than expected especially considering the price. Located on a golf course and the only Playboy Club it has a ton to see and do being part of Grand Geneva. We will be back!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Lake Geneva on 4/14/12. We normally stay at the Grand Geneva, but their prices were a little over the top for that weekend. The Holiday Inn is conveniently located adjacent to the Grand Geneva. The rooms are large and we really like the small kitchen that is included. We couldn't believe there was an actual washer/dryer combo in the bathroom closet. Nice feature. We love to go to the bar at the Grand Geneva but didn't really want to use the car. We called the Concierge at the Grand Geneva and asked for the trolley to pick us up. I asked how long it would take, (we were planning on walking up the really steep hill to get there instead) :). Grand Geneva asked when we wanted them there, I told them 10 minutes and that's exactly when they showed up. We were also able to take the trolley back at the end of the night. This worked perfect for us. The only thing that I thought was ridiculous was that there was a sign on the refrigerator telling us that it would be helpful if we took the garbage out and loaded the dishwasher and that check-out was at 10:00 a.m. It's not like we paid $35 for the room.. I laughed at this sign. We always leave our rooms as picked up as possible and yes, I did load the dishwasher with the few glasses that we used.. a little strange. Check-out was too early as well. I would stay there again,

Room Tip: We were in unit 641. I believe this is a newer building than the others.

Hi there Kat. Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. We’re so glad that your chance stay with us turned out to be a great experience for you. We hope that you will consider us your new home away from home in the future, as you seemed to have enjoyed the room and amenities. How convenient that the trolley was able to make your evening that much more fun. We bet not a lot of your friends can say that they had a trolley to chauffeur them around on their vacation. We apologize if you did not care for the signage in your room, but we do appreciate you helping us out. Hope to see you soon.

We had trouble finding the complex. It is not well marked - in fact not signed at all. This is Hugh Hefner's former Playboy Club and the scenary and grounds are impeccable. Look for the Grand Geneva Resort sign and follow directions. We found the Holiday Inn Club accomodations suitable, but not what we expected, or what we were accustomed to with Orange Lake properties. It was noisy, small and not comfortable at all. The Grand Geneva, which you have access to is very nice, but very 1970's. I found it to be rather dark and costly. Dinner for two will run you $150 or so. To get to the Spa/Fitness center you have to drive, but it is nice, as is the exercise/sporting equipment. We enjoyed going into Lake Geneva the best of all. Quaint shops and unique eating places.

Hello Bobbi. Thank you for your review of your stay with us. We are disappointed to hear that you were dissatisfied with your accommodations as so many of our guests rave about their sophistication. You are correct that this resort is different from Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort. As it is a resort within a larger shared property. We apologize if finding your way around the resort was tricky, but the way you describe the area and grounds it sounds like it was worth the wait. We hope that we have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

This property is attached to the Grand Geneva Resort. The good news is that you have access to all the Grand Geneva amenities (indoor pool, waterpark for a fee, golf). Now for the bad news. We used some RCI points to stay here for the weekend in the Fall. The Holiday Inn resort is at the very end of the Grand Geneva property, on the golf course. It's nice to watch people golfing from your room, but the walls of the suites are pretty thin. We could hear so much noice from both sides of our room that it was quite disturbing at night. Also, you have to drive to get to any of the shared amenities (spa, indoor pool, waterpark) as the property is ginormous.
