Stayed here for one night after attending an event in town. The motel was very clean and they have obviously made attempts to modernize the decor in the rooms. The floors are not carpeted which made the room feel a bit institutionalized to me. Maybe that's ideal in summertime with wet swimmers returning to their rooms? I was here on... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this motel. The owners put in a lot of thought and care into renovating. I was impressed when I opened the door to our room and realized the attention to detail and quality that went into everything from the floor to the vanity, pillows, bedspreads, etc. All of the rooms are not decorated the...

We stayed mid week and were quite happy with our pick of motels. It is an older motel but was very clean and had a beautiful pool. It's close enough to beaches and town but far enough away for some peace and quiet. The owner was an absolute delight. Very nice and accommodating. We are already making plans for a... More

This motel was a good walk from "town" but it did save us at least $50 a night. The young man who's family owns the place was helpful. The rooms were updated for a motel of that era and the decor was nice. The beds and pillows were very comfy. The fridge and coffee pot came in handy.

A little gem only about 5 blocks away from the lake! Very clean, even had a microwave and small refrigerator in the room. Quiet too. Nicely landscaped pool area with even a fire pit. Outdoor pool very clean. Nice owners. Just down the street from the Cheesbox! Great little cheese and sausage store. Would stay there again.

It was our first time at this hotel. We loved it mainly for the family orientated owners. They were very friendly and more then accommodating. Our room was extremely clean and spacious. The pool was clean and an all around pleasant experience. I 100% recommend the Geneva Wells Motel
