I was desperate for a room in the area when I called the Anchor Motel. My son had qualified for a big swim meet at The Spire Institute in Geneva, and I had 5 days to find a room--in August! I talked to Phil, the owner, and he was able to squeeze us in, although we had to change rooms... More

We came here last year and had a great time. The owners are so nice and helpful. If there is anything you need and you ASK, they will do everything they can to help you out. They also know the strip better than anyone and you can get some great advice on where to eat/what to do. We stayed here... More

My husband booked this place after reading all of these rave reviews. But really people, I am confused!!! All this about the rooms being clean. Our room was so dark, dated and small that I really couldn't tell if it was clean. We would not have been so upset if we paid $89 to stay there, but at $120...no way... More

Our first trip to Geneva and staying at a motel! Gave the rooms a 4 star because they are small and outdated furniture. Also, bring blow drier and soap (small bar in room) Didn't realize motels don't provide. :) However, compared to some of the motels we passed this motel was one of the nicest on the strip. The rooms... More

This little gem is the best value at GOTL. The owners are on premise and interact with the customers to insure a great stay. Rooms are CLEAN and the linen, towels etc are nice quality. These are not large rooms but if u have ever been to GOTL they are the nicest around. Plus the prices are great. Grounds are... More

This was our second trip back to Geneva. We stayed at the Lodge the first time and loved it. Unfortunately the lodge was booked the weekend we visited, so we settled for the Anchor Motel. According to trip advisor the motel had recently been updated. The motel may have been updated on the outside with new siding but the room... More

As always, we at the Anchor Motel and Cottages take all guest concerns seriously. That said, we find it necessary to respond to this review. Admittedly, as it turned out, there was an error in the credit transaction as this guest checked-in. However, when the problem was later identified and "confirmed", the error was rectified with a full refund of... More

My husband & I spent this weekend in Geneva on the Lake and stayed at the Anchor Motel. Even though the room was small, it was clean & comfy!! We will stay here again!! Friendly service. The only thing missing was a swimming pool, but we still had a relaxing weekend.
