We stayed at this hotel last weekend (8/19-8/21) and it was just "ok". We had heard it had a great pool area so we tried that out, unfortunately we were greeted at the pool door with two ladies who yelled at us for bringing inflated pool toys in the area. Apparently we missed a sign that said it wasn't allowed...

The Cove doesn't have a lot of competition around it therefore the best part of The Cove is...the location! You can walk to nearby restaurants, activities and stores. But, with our recent stay, we did notice all the improvements and were very pleased. Their accommodations definitely work with large groups. We've been coming here for years and overall are very...

Our first experience with this place. Not bad at all! Clean and quite comfortable. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Price is reasonable. We stayed in an Ensign Suite and enjoyed it very much. Quite roomy for three or four people. All Ensign suites face the parking lot so keep that in mind when making your room choice. I will say...

The hotel is fine. The rooms are not fancy, but are in good shape compared to a lot of vacation properties. You are paying for the location. All the food and attractions of downtown Lake Geneva are a short walk away. The staff is better than average, except for the people running the coffee bar (they don't know what they...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for a family wedding. Very clean and comfortable. Easy check in, friendly staff. Kitchen in suite had all you need for a short stay. No breakfast, limited parking, slow elevators, extra charge for services

The pictures of the room on the website are not anything like the room in person. They are about half the size. It says all suite rooms......there is not a separate bedroom with a door. It is just a long room with a bed, then a kitchen and a very small living room. The room was not clean when we...

All in all a nice place. Studio room has a terrible layout. One air conditioning unit that is located in the front of the studio and can't get the sleeping area. Kitchen was good. Missing some essentials. No frying pan or spatula. Bathroom very nice. The pool area was great.

We stayed at this hotel only for one night becasue our hotel in Fontana did not have any rooms for our Thursday night visit to Lake Geneva and we wanted to start the weekend early. The hotel is within walking distance to boat tours, the beach, and resturants so you do not have to pay for public parking. The hotel...

Our adult "children" and their almost-adult children all stayed (in separate suites) for two nights. We had been to the hotel restaurant previously and liked it very much but had never stayed at The Cove. Glad we did as it was walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Boat rental across the street, shopping, etc. We had a wonderful...

The Cove is a nice family resort In a great location. The basic rooms are huge and clean with great space for a family. There is nothing fancy about the rooms. The balcony views are just mediocre. We had a view of the parking lot. That being said, you probably won't spend much time in your room. There is plenty...
