“Nice hotel, amazing view. Location within Lake Geneva really cant be beat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

My husband and I recently stayed here to attend a wedding in lake Geneva. The hotel prices are better than some of the bigger 'names' in Lake Geneva, but the location is just a good. The hotel sits right off the water so one entire half of the hotel has amazing views, with balconies to enjoy them. The rooms arent super modern, but they are clean and have the amenities you need.

Some things to note, both good and bad:

*Balconies are VERY close to the parking lot. So rooms with the water view on lower floors are really offering no privacy at all. Good views, but dont expect to sit out there and feel private.
*Parking is a big benefit for this place. They have a lot in the back of the hotel and they give you a parking pass for your car. Only people with this pass can drive into the parking lot, its partolled by a 'guard (its someone in a lawn chair sitting by the entrance) at all times. You can pretty much walk to all of Lake Geneva easily so there is no need to find parking elsewhere. Huge bonus.
*There is a pizza place attached to the hotel that will deliver right to your room
*Breakfast is included and its a nice selection, good quality

Harbor Shores was very accommodating when I had to change my reservation at the last minute. They made the change at no extra charge. We had a nice clean room with a beautiful view of the lake from the balcony. The fridge came in very handy as well as the Keurig coffee machine, I brought keurig cups of my own so as not to pay an extra $1.50 per cup. The hotel was in walking distance to everything we wanted to do, so I never had to drive anywhere. Being that I am not a big breakfast eater, the free continental breakfast was perfect. We had orange juice, cereal, waffles and muffins. Very nice indoor and outdoor pools. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly. I would recommend this hotel.

Harbor Shores is a great place to stay for a couple or a family. We stayed there and thoroughly enjoyed the view from the pool and the accessibility to the downtown area. The outdoor hot tub at sunset is incredible .Everything within walking distance and Gino's East is located right within the Hotel. Great Chicago style deep dish pizza and the thin crust is awesome too. You can view the lake right from the pool area and if you want to rent boats, wave runners or pontoons it is a across the street or a block down. Lot's to do and see in Lake Geneva.Stay at Harbor shores and enjoy the continental breakfast every morning of your stay. They also have a late checkout policy for a few dollars you can check out at 2 different later times if they have availability.

The location is awesome. The lakeside view with balcony was great. Worth the upgrade for that. The coffee maker in room did not work. There was no guest directory in room. The elevators were extremely slow, so we took the stairs at the end of the hall got down to the 1st floor and door was locked. Went up to 2nd floor and got back into the hotel and then took elevator. Not impressed. Went out for breakfast..........the continental breakfast has a lot to be desired.

Room Tip: Lake view room worth upgrade.

I ran into some confusion on a billing item which was promptly handled by Tammy, the GM. While we ended up not staying at this property on our reservation, I would highly recommend the staff to all. I will be staying at this property in the future.

We had a wonderful view of the lake from our balcony. Easy to walk about town, which was good since we had a flat. One of their workers helped us by filling up the tire. The was quite large. The bed seemed a bit used. We had planned to go out to breakfast, which was good, since theirs was not adequate.

Great location, right on the lake with awesome lake view. The room was decent for the price and overall it was a relaxing, great stay. Service could be better as well as their coffee and continental breakfast.
