We really liked the view of this hotel. We had a lakeside room on the first floor. The view was stunning. The hotel was located a few minutes from downtown. The room had a fridge, TV, balcony, shower and a whirlpool. I was so glad we booked the lake view, it was worth it. The room was clean and quaint....

We had lunch today at Geneva Inn and were very disappointed. We have dined there in the past several times and found it to be very good, but the waitress said it was under new ownership. My wife ordered risotto with chicken and it was tasteless. It was sticky, gummy rice. We have risotto often in other restaurants and at...

Hello Toby, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The Geneva Inn has been owned by the same family since 1990. Risotto is a creamy Italian rice dish - we are sorry the taste did not meet your expectations. We are appreciative of your loyal service and hope you will give us another chance!

Although the lobby and restaurant look remodeled, the wing back chairs are atrocious, how stuffy can you get? This Inn doesn't have a lakeside vibe, too formal. The room I stayed in was outdated. A big and tall poster bed that is difficult to get in and out of and shaky. The matteress was hard, uncomfortable, subpar linens and pillows....

Well kept, beautiful hotel with amazing bedding (*****) Comfortable rooms and very nice shower. About two miles from downtown, you want a room on the lake if possible for beautiful views of Lake Geneva. Has breakfast at the hotel also and it was delicious.

When you walk into the lobby there is a warm friendly atmosphere. We had no reservation and the gentleman at the front desk (don't remember his name) helped us with our room requests and checked us in efficiently. We took a king room with a whirlpool tub and lake view. The room was very clean and the view of the...

This is a place you take your significant other to for a weekend getaway. They will love it. The staff was friendly, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Our room had a balcony and it overlooked the lake. It's only a 6 minute drive from downtown Lake Geneva and like a $7 uber driver. I highly recommend...

Great hotel friendly service comfortable bed rooms we had the one with the whirlpool tub, The only complaint would be that it does not have a pool but the view of the lake more than makes up for that love this hotel will definitely return.

Enjoyed a relaxing weekday overnight at this lovely inn. The renovations to the rooms, lobby and restaurant areas really show! Our king-bed room was new, clean, fresh, very attractively decorated and even has a keureg coffeemaker and a small refrigerator. The continental breakfast was ok--loved the fresh fruit--but wish there had been fresh bakery bread, bagels, muffins and sweet rolls...

The room was great but didn't go with the advertise picture. The hotel is a quite place to be relaxed and enjoy the sunset view. The continental breakfast is not worth it at all, will advise to get breakfast outside.

This property is beautiful! Well appointed guest rooms, luxurious beds, beautiful view (ask for a lake view). Breakfast in the dining room was good, and the view is fantastic. Walk the lakeside trail afterward and see the luxe homes along the shore. The perfect weekend!
