The Ridge Hotel was excellent. The staff was friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the Ridge to anyone planning on visiting the Lake Geneva area. The Geneva National Golf Courses are world class and in my opinion, among the best in the midwest. I would certainly stay again.

Nothing fancy here, the room was pretty basic for a resort. Nothing to write home about. I rated this hotel this high because of what they offer, two restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor bars, nighttime fire pit, great views and a very courteous and nice hotel staff.

My husband and 2 children (13,10) stayed here for two nights. The lobby has a nice modern feel and the room we stayed in looked very new and clean. Nice furnishings and updated. However, the beds and pillows were not comfortable and seemed old and worn. The bathroom was spacious and also newly updated but the tub's non slip coating... More

The Ridge just updated its lobby, restaurant, pool bar, and conference areas. Very nice! They said the rooms were updated a couple of years ago, but they did not look it. The hotel was clean over all and the restaurant service and food was very good. There were a few things that took the rating down. They made mistakes with... More

The pool and outdoor bar is fantastic, the staff is friendly. The renovations on the inside are beautiful. The place is classy. The Friday fish fry is affordable and exceptional. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to the area. Great view of Lake Como

You can tell the Ridge Hotel put a lot of effort into their renovations. The hotel is clean, modern, and has great amenities. We had never stayed here before, but came for our anniversary on a weekend getaway and had the perfect time staying here. We loved going out by the pool and taking advantage of the bar on the...

My new wife and I just had our wedding weekend reception here. From a wedding standpoint they knew how to throw a good party. Perfect execution and dinner performance to a dime.

We visited the Ridge for a Mother's Day weekend family trip. The rooms were comfortable, spacious, and updated. The pool was fun for the kids and grown ups. By far our favorite space was the outdoor bar and glass fireplace. A lovely view for enjoying cocktails in the late afternoon and early evening. We returned after a wonderful dinner inside... More

Friendly staff, clean room, but the pool area needs a major upgrade. Pool chairs were the worst I have ever seen at a hotel. The pool towels were the size for a small child. The hotel allowed other guests to bring a "boom box" and coolers to the pool. Very loud and empty beer cans all over.
