“Relaxing but boring for a younger crowd”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Was suppose to spend 3/26 until 3/29 2013 but checked out a day earlier. The Resort didn't have any activities to do on site besides the pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna, or fitness center which is not a big deal. The pool was crowded with little kids all day long. Also the food was pricey and not good, the rooms were average and the best part to the room was the bathroom lol. My spouse and I spent most of our time visiting the other resorts such as Abbey, Grand Geneva and Timber lodge which has tons to do at the resort along. Lake Geneva's scenery was very interesting and I love walking on the beach and visiting the antique shops but that's about all! I'm sure in the summer, Lake Geneva will be a better trip to visit but all in all I would not go back to the Geneva Ridge Resort but will visit Lake Geneva again!!!

Room Tip: Just for the ambiance if you must stay at the Geneva Ridge request the Lakeside View or you'll b...

My family and I were looking for a place to have a short getaway not too far from home. Came across a groupon for the Geneva ridge resort for an inexpensive price. The room was very up to date very clean, beds were comfortable. The pool a decent size, TV, DVD player and fridge everything we needed. The only problem we discovered was there were water bugs in our room which we discovered that morning we were leaving not one or two, but 7. When we called the front desk no answer let the phone rings more that 15 times on more than one occasion. When we checked out we notified the front desk of the bugs the receptionist simply apologized, no eye contact what so ever then simply said your all set!

I was there for a 5 day convention and thoroughly enjoyed the place. The front desk staff was a delight to speak to. The bar and restaurant areas are well constructed. The wait staff was extremely courteous and helpful.

The room itself was great, as it had touches that went the extra mile: in room safe, craftsman style woodwork, solid wood crafted furniture (compared to particle board veneer), stone countertop for the vanity, tiled shower surround, etc. The bed and couch were fluffy and comfortable.

I didn't go try the pool or workout area, but the pool looked huge and was constantly in use. There was about 2 feet of snow outside, so I wasn't able to walk around the extensive outside areas behind the hotel.

Really the only negative about the place that I could come up with, was the side entry doors were unlocked. Meaning someone not staying at the hotel could come in and walk around the hotel without having to pass through the main entrance - possible security risk.

Beyond that, I loved the place.

Was on a girls weekend escape and thought we would stay here again as the last time we were here it was recently under new management. The check in was efficient and we were very happy with our rooms. The pool and hot tub were great as usual. We checked out the dinner menu and it was very blah, not much variety, and very unimagitive so we went and ate elsewhere in town. We came back to the hotel as we were informed that there was live music only to find a very depressed old man playing horrible saxaphone music. The more he drank the more he hit on us and was kind of creepy so again we decided to go elsewhere. Keypads on the ouside entry doors would be a plus for when returning after hours. We needed some extra towels on Sunday morning and housekeeping brought them to us very quickly and our checkout was efficient as well. Overall the hotel is very nice, just some of the additional services need to be tweaked.

At first I was excited about the hotel when we walked in. The lobby is very inviting and looks like a lodge. However when we went down to our room on the first floor, it felt like we had just walked into a whole different hotel. The carpet looked dated and was coming off of the floor, the ceiling tiles looked like they were caked in dust, the outside doors were not secured, and the heaters in the stairwell were caked in dust. The housekeeping was not up to par. The room was not vacuumed, our supplies were not replenished and nothing was wiped down. The only thing they did was change our linens and towels, and emptied out our garbage. When we went to the bar to eat for lunch the service was terrible. We waited forever just to get drinks and our food. There were lots of staff but only one of them was serving. They made it seem like they had a whole other room full of people, but when we looked in there there wasn't anyone in there. Did not find this place relaxing and the staff seemed unprofessional and numb.

We had a great overnight "parent" escape at Geneva Ridge in Feb 2013. Rooms very clean. Great location. Could have spent a couple of nights here. Would also come with the kids using interconnecting rooms.

We spent the weekend at the Ridge Resort and enjoyed it. There is plenty to do even in the winter months.

Im guess its beautiful in the summer.

Only real complaint that could be fixed would be too offer breakfast or somthing to eat on week days even a muffin to buy to go with the free coffee would of been great. The only other problems deal with the property being older (pool was a little dirty, hallway noise was loud, could add keyed entrace on doors) but there was plenty of staff always around working and fixing stuff.

Like i said no real problems but plenty of good. I heard the food in the resturant was good. The bar friday night was fun and very very entertaining /one guy singing and lots of people dancing. There is a little game room always a plus. The spa seemed nice, i didnt use it but seen many happy people. The ice rink out front looked awesome at night and if we had our skates would of skated and got some great pictures. The pool was nice, the hot tub was big, the pool bathroom was very nice, they have a sauna (never really hot but we also never asked if they could turn it up) and the steam room (not sure if thats what its called) was awesome!! I spent a lot of time in there

The rooms where nice, kind of wished my two bed room would of been queens instead of doubles but it was fine.

Overall we where happy with the stay and the kids had fun. I would like to check it out in the summer!
