We stayed in a lakeside room - well worth it! As a former local who had just come back to visit family, I had imagined this hotel to be dated on the inside - so I was pleasantly surprised to find updated furniture and bedding, and just a really nice room, overall. And of course, you can't beat the location... More

I met a girlfriend there for an overnight of shopping, eating and talking!! The lake is amazingly beautiful. The best part about the room is the view. The hotel is nothing special. It will do for what we needed. Nothing fancy. Beds were fine. Cheap pillows and towels. The kitchenette is very handy. We brought wine and goodies to sit... More

We love the Harbor Shores on Lake Geneva. We are surprised that they get such a low review. We stayed at the Cove next door and hated it because the balcony faces the back of the hotel and there is no view. You can't beat the view. It is however a very old hotel and maybe that is why it... More

linnyluvstotravel ~ Since we have updated our guest room furniture, our Lakeview Rooms now have only a king with a pullout or two queens in the rooms. All of our Parkview Rooms have been changed to all two queens. Gino's does still offer room service to our guest rooms as well. While it is true that our building is older,... More

Great hotel within walking distance of everything. Staff is great and helpful. Rooms are older, but clean and spacious. Had a great stay with friends, we walked to dinner and around town. Parking was the only issue, but that's an issue in the entire city .

Great service, friendly people, clean rooms and the food and beer at Ginos East in the hotel was wonderful! We loved that our room had a balcony with a beautiful view of the lake. The view of the Fall foliage around the lake was amazing.

My wife and I checked in on a busy Sunday afternoon. Nevertheless, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The check-in process went quickly and efficiently. As far as the facilities are concerned, this is an older building which has been reasonably well-maintained. Harbor Shores is not flashy or hugely upscale, but it is a good value for the price-point.... More

The best lodging location right in the heart of town with a rare view of the lake! Can walk to restaurants and bars. Indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, 2 hot tubs- Gino's East Restaurant in the lobby. New furniture- free breakfast. What a great deal! One of our favorite places to come.
