I was impressed with the room I stayed in,everything worked, plenty of room and a nice view of the creek, the staff was friendly and helpful. Only disappointments were, the room I was reserved on the 3rd floor was not available due to recarpeting and I saw that early checkin was available for a fee which was important to me as I am handicapped and needed to rest after a long trip but when I arrived I was told that was not an option and sat in my car to wait. I am planning another trip there in February and hope I can get a room on the third floor.

My mom and I stayed two nights mid week. I requested a room on the top floor, in the back of the hotel (facing the stream). It's a small hotel, but no top floor rooms available. We ended up in the back, on the first floor. Our room was closest to the weight room, vending machine for DVDs and pool. The entrance to the hotel is small and dark, with the small front desk right as you walk into the hotel. The elevator is right there, as well. Hallways seem small in width, and the green paint makes them feel "dark." There is a parking garage under the hotel. It is open, with some spots covered/others not. It's small, so one car per guest room. We saw several people park there and walk into town, to avoid the paid parking there. The hotel front desk said it doesn't check to make sure spaces are for guests only, although garage signs say they do. The room itself was very adequate. The kitchenette was useful and clean, with enough space to eat at the counter or the dining table. Fireplace was also nice; the patio is small with sideways views of the park/stream. The queen bed was not terribly comfortable, nor was the pull out couch. We ended up putting sheets/blankets on the couch to sleep, rather than pulling it out into a bed. Bathroom was spacious, and the large jet tub was a plus. More lighting would be nice, however. One of my concerns when staying in hotels is the noise, which is why I try to stay on the top floor, away from the elevator, ice machine, pool, etc. This room was very noisy. We heard people in the weight room (next door) dropping weights, kids running through the halls above us, people using their jetted tub at 11:00 pm (despite signs in the bathroom not to, because of the noise), and people talking and yelling outside our window, since we were directly above the garage. We ended up trying to drown out the noise by turning on the noisy heating unit, and opening the windows so we wouldn't burn up. The hotel is in a great spot in LG. First floor rooms can view the stream and trees, but really no lake. We walked everywhere-which was nice. When I mentioned the noise to the front desk, they just said "sorry." I should note that the only time we were spoken to when entering or leaving the hotel, was when we checked in and out. Otherwise, front desk staff never looked up, greeted us, or asked if they could be of any help. We are frequent visitors to LG, but will look at other options in the future.

Room Tip: Upper levels, though they will cost more due to their size, may be a better bet for quiet. The back...

We (hubby and I) were so impressed with this hotel, this was actually our second time. Our room was very spacious (the size of a small apartment) and had a very nice view. Instead of the big Thanksgiving dinner we decided to relax and do nothing at Mill Creek. Management was so friendly and courteous. This is a nice and close place to just get away and we get away approx. every three to four months and Lake Geneva is close enough. The only negative thing I would say about the hotel is that it does not have a restaurant or some type of lounge area.

Room Tip: Room very clean and spacious and quiet.

We had a special winter rate and for under $90 including tax enjoyed a full kitchen, fireplace, and a huge tub. The room was very large and well-kept. The people working there were very helpful with suggestions for where to eat. It is walking distance to everything fun.

Don't shy away from Lake Geneva in the winter. It is still charming and more quiet without so many tourist. We enjoyed our little winter escape.

We were unable to travel more than an hours distance following our wedding. Found this wonderful place online and decided to go for it. I called the hotel to make the reservation back in August and was given great advice about which room to choose and I was even upgraded free of charge. I had planned roses and champagne upon our arrival. To my suprise the rose petals were throughout the mini apartment, on the floor, in the bathroom by the huge whirlpool tub and in the bedroom formed into a heart on the bed. Our stay was awesome. My husband was also very happy. The hotel was in a great location and we loved that we couple open the patio door and the 2 sets of windows to feel the outdoors. We definitely will be back.

The staff were all very nice and offered recommendations for our meals. The cleaning ladies were also very kind and gracious.

Dont hesitiate to book here you will enjoy your experience.

Room Tip: Do not choose a room by the elevator and try to get a room on the 3rd floor there is a skylight.

Our room was very comfortable, views to the park and creek were very scenic. The lake being right across the road was a bonus. We will be back. Being able to walk to the shopping and restaurants made the trip relaxing. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away this is it!
