“Welcome to 1970”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Booked 2 rooms and all I can say is YUCK! Furnishings and mattress were from 1970 at least which is probably the last time they were really clean also. Tub was stained & filthy in one unit, sink was rusted & stained in other unit. Carpets so dirty I did not want to walk on them in my bare feet. Backing on the drapes was so dry rotted that it was falling off. Found giant spider webs and someone's shirt in corner by refrigerator. Pool was dirty and freezing cold. Rooms smelled musty and moldy and were way too cold at nite. Had to leave a day early because my grandkids were freezing at nite. Mattress was awful, no coffee maker or hair dryer. No refunds for discomfort!!! Will not stay there again. Could be such a cute place if it was upgraded.

This motel is more for a place to pass out rather than a family place to stay. We chose it because of the pool and because we needed two bedrooms. We were supposed to stay for a week but checked out after 3 days because it was so dirty, there were bugs everywhere and it smelled AWFUL. The entire place is in serious need of updating and the cost per night is way too much for what you get.

Room Tip: Pick a different place to stay if you have kids!

The couple who manage the Park Gate were great (Bob and Trish). All we had to do was ask if we needed something and they immediately got it for us.
Very laid back place, where you can relax and just have a good time. Very close to the strip, so you can walk to all your destinations. The pool area was fun. This was our third time renting cottages. We were able to cook breakfasts, grill out side, eat at the pool, etc.
If you are looking for the ritz, then you might not be happy. But, if you are looking for a cute cottage, with nice people and a fun atmosphere, this is the place in Geneva, ,Ohio you should go to.

Room Tip: Take the first floor cottage
