This stay at this lovely hotel for us involved multiple stops on vacation. I have always wanted to stay here because we have enjoyed several lovely lunches in previous years on their patio. Not disappointed in our room! It was truly lovely - incredible view. Only wish is if they had a pool or a place to relax in the... More

Nothing beats a day out to Lake Geneva, but one of my biggest issues with Lake Geneva is the huge lack of decent places to eat – especially ones that are on the water. The Geneva Inn is one of the best kept secrets. I have never stayed there overnight, but have no doubt I would be happy staying there.... More

The location of this Inn is perfect, giving quiet relaxing location to chill out, but being within minutes of attractions and local dinning. The room décor was fresh and light. We had a private covered deck patio open to a great view of the lake. The beds were comfortable and we had a nice wide screen TV with cable in... More

My wife decided at the last minute that she wanted to go to Lake Geneva for her birthday. The only hotel that was available when we looked for one night was the Geneva Inn. We are glad we decided to stay there. It doesn't offer all the amenities like other hotels, but it satisfied our needs. It is off the... More

Excellently prepared food by a chef who understands it. Items could be made vegan. Great fresh seafood, vegetables. No room for desserts, although available .Great service by our waitress, Laura. Prices high, but reasonable for food received. Drink menu reasonable, and sunset over lake spectacular.

On our first trip to Lake Geneva we reserved a room here based on the hotel's website and Tripadvisor reviews. We were glad we stayed at the Geneva Inn. We did not pay the extra money for the lakeview room, but because our weekday visit seemed rather quiet around the inn, we had much of the public balcony to ourselves.... More

We went to Geneva Inn for Sunday brunch today, for the first time since it's been completely remodeled. The renovations are nicely done, with classic styling, and only enhance the fabulous view of Geneva Lake. However, we were disappointed with the new menu. Prices are up and portions are down, with old favorites no where in sight. The food was... More

We have been going to Geneva Inn for many years. In fact we were married there almost 25 years ago. The Inn itself is wonderful and the views of the lake are beautiful. However, the restaurant used to be called the Grandview and was usually excellent, but starting In May 2016 the restaurant was renovated, the name changed to Geneva... More

Much needed new decor is first rate. However, kitchen and wait staff need to kick it in gear. 2 1/2 hr dinner unacceptable. The anticipated food and beverage service on waterside terrace will be a major asset for boaters. We certainly will give the restaurant another try - it's a beautiful inn with amazing views of Geneva Lake.
