Just to get away for a nice evening we live about 1hr and 15 mins away and we love Lake Geneva , We were very happy with our room it was clean and great location to the pool and the 24 hour open gift came in really handy especially with kids. The staff definitely went above and beyond to help with anything. We will definitely be back !!!!! We ate the the restaurant for dinner because it was freezing outside and the dinner was ok prices aaaa alittle high but all restaurants in lake Geneva are alittle bit more than usual family restaurants. Fun weekend getaway!!! Would have been even greater if it was nicer weather we could have walked into town. I would love to go back during the summer sometime. See More

I stayed at The Cove with a bunch of my girlfriends we had a great time! We read many reviews before booking our room. Room # 234 had a bunch of positive reviews so we requested that room for our stay.... It was awesome, it was updated and clean, perfectly decorated, the the reviews were right! Planning another girls trip in the spring, we will definitely stay at The Cove, and we are definitely going to request Room # 234 again! :-) See More

I have been here about 5 times. 2x in the past 6 months or so. I booked through groupon for the first time for the Cove. My room must be the worst room in the whole place.. I’m on the ground level, by... the exit door to the parking lot, also by the power room, and vending and ice machines, and let’s not forget the housekeepers office where the smell of the deodorizer is making me get a migraine. The quality of the interior of the room.. let’s see where to start the cracked toilet, the obnoxious exposed power cords, the over all layout of the room. I hope I can make it the 3 nights I gotta stay here. I am extremely disappointed.. needless to say I won’t be coming here again. See More

We came here for a weekend getaway for our first anniversary. When we first walked in to the lobby, it was beautifully decorated! The lady who helped us check in was nice. However, when we got to our I was a little disappointed. It is big, so big that it seemed almost underfurnished, and definitely outdated. The carpets have stains. The master bed is lumpy. Our Jacuzzi bath tub didn't work. Definitely loud. We were excited over the espresso bar but couldn't order anything with espresso because there was no milk? It is a lot of money for the quality of the rooms. Overall we did enjoy our weekend, but having a little "buyer's remorse." See More

What a beautiful place. Our loft suites were amazing. Lovely staff. The kitchen in the rooms were pretty well equipped. It has to be amazing in warmer weather. I can hardly wait to go back.

Let me start with saying I loved what cane with staying here......but, after checking in my room, there was a wet towel on the floor of the kitchen & the carpet was wet & had a smell (I'm guessing fro...m cleaning the carpet) Around midnight the cable went out, I called twice & it kept popping on & off. We ended falling asleep not because we was tired but because we was done with conversation & the cable took so long to pop back on. Today, my stove didn't work as I was trying to prepare breakfast, only to find out the cleaning staff unplugged it to clean it & didn't plug it back, so we had to wait for maintenance to come & tell us that. I ended up booking a x-tra day only because we had family coming. Overall it's a great family get away, especially if u have kids 12 & under, but I hated to have to keep calling the office asif I was a hassle. I just like to come enjoy my time & leave. The staff is friendly. See More

Just getting home from a mini getaway with my two sons, ages 5 and 8. This was our first time at The Cove. We had a great time overall! You can't beat the location! Once we parked our car when we arri...ved, we didn't get back in it until we were ready to pack up and leave. So close to everything!!! Dining, shopping, the lake, etc. We also had a great time at both the outdoor and indoor pools. The water temperature was perfect and the pools appeared to be very clean. We were a little disappointed with our room. It was very spacious and clean however there were several features that did not work. The sliding door to a closet right when we walked in was off the track and just leaning up against the wall. Our TV above the fireplace did not work, even after we called down to the front desk for assistance. The jets in the tub also were not in working order. All in all, our trip was great. Pretty sure we will return. See More

It was fine, outdated, pee stains on the couch pull out mattress, shower didn't work that well. I did like the lotion in the bathrooms,- was a bachelorette party so it was fine for what we needed it f...or. We still had fun. Pool was really
Nice, restaurant food was awesome, bar was great as well. I liked the fact there was an indoor pool too.

I'm so sad to have to write this, but this might have been our last stay at The Cove (we stay here every summer). We rented a room through a private owner for this stay, but our problem was with the p...ool.
On Thursday, July 13, the behavior of a group of boys in the "kiddie pool" area was absolutely reprehensible. My son has enjoyed this pool and the slides/pirate ship for the past 5 years. On Thursday there was a group physically fighting, kicking, punching, hitting each other with pool noodles, blocking other children from getting on the slides, etc. Their parents were not supervising them, and no lifeguard stepped in to end this behavior. Several of us took our children out of the kiddie pool to distance them from this melee. I, and other parents, spoke to lifeguards, but nothing was done. No manager was present to alert of the situation either. After nearly an hour of waiting for this to be addressed, we left.
It saddens me that this was allowed to occur and now I fear for safety of pool goers due to the negligence of the lifeguard staff and lack of managerial intervention. Our son will certainly not be swimming there again.

We usually come to the cove once a year. The location is perfect. Once you park your car you really don't have to move it again. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is awesome. The p...ools are clean. There was a young girl who was non stop cleaning up any garbage, towels, glass doors, the water fountain she never stopped. She really stood out to me. The life guards were nice but I think they would be more effective if they were spread out and paying attention instead of in a group talking. The arcade was nice to have but we would have stayed longer if there were less crane games and more games. I know you make more money on the crane games but it was too much. The front desk has always been very nice and accommodating. We really love this place. If we had to pick one disappointment it would be that the outdoor pool is closed at 9 p.m. It should be open later. See More

The room we had was very spacious and clean. I loved that we were able to cook and had a refrigerator. The pools and hot tubs are kept very clean. The staff is helpful and very accommodating. I woul...d definitely come back here. My family had a great trip. Plus very close to town, we walked there everyday. I have to say we stayed here during country thunder weekend and even with all of the guests our room was quiet. Kudos to the staff for the amazing job they do. See More

recently stayed at the Cove with my boyfriend, it was amazing. We were lucky we had great weather so we were able to enjoy the awesome outdoor pool. We tanned a few hours drank a few tropical and listened to some great live music. Wish they would bring back the reggae band they were awesome. My boyfriend read a bunch of reviews on rooms and requested room 234, it was available for 2 of the 3 nights we stayed. Wow, room 234 was unbelievably nice, the reviews were accurate plus the view was way better on this rooms side We were a floor up so we could see the pool, tiny shot of the lake and a stream. The other room looked at a parking lot and we were on the 1st floor so we looked directly at a car. The other room was like staying in my grandmothers house. We already booked room 234 for our anniversary in August, can't wait. Overall great hotel and conveniently located close to everything!!! See More

This is our first time at The Cove and it's great! My son and I came up for 2 days before he starts school and we barely used our car. We walked everywhere except the grocery store and bowling can't beat the location! We will definitely be coming back again soon :) See More

Great location, great pool right in the heart of Lake Geneva. My family has been staying there for years. The Cove is the perfect place to go for a weekend getaway that's close to Chicago and that won...t break the bank, It gets the mini vacay job done. The hotel is under new management, so they have been improving The Cove as well as continued improvements are to come, definitely a good thing. The rooms are individually owned, I would ask for room 234, its a nice updated room on the stream/pool side. Highly recommended !! See More

The room was spacious but bare. The entire room was outdated. The worst part was the bed was not comfortable at all. The location is good and my kids loved the pool but overall I think it is overprice...d for the lack of quality. See More
