Pros: Super clean. Liked that there was an exit every corner. Great restaurant attached to hotel. Staff was friendly. Hotel was in good location. Cons: pool only was 5 feet deep. Bed could have been bigger. The gym was tiny, and had an out dated gym machine. The pros far outweigh the cons, but thought I would share that. I definitely plan in going back, and recommend it of course

Dated hotel, but good location

This hotel is pretty bizarre. It is fairly expensive for what you are getting. Our room was so dated and also quite dirty. There were cobwebs with spiders in the corners of the room, and I have never slept on sheets that were such poor quality. On a positive note, the hotel is in a great location. I also found that there were very few options for nice hotels in this area, so this may be your best bet.

Great if you are with your kids

With 2 outdoor and 1 indoor pool, this place is a hit for the kids. There is a kids corner open in the afternoons with arts and crafts. S'more roasting at night and the location to the beach can't be beat. This is our 6th year coming during Venetian Fest. The carnival is in town and the kids have a blast!

Great Location and pool

We checked in and went to the room which was a mess and smelled awful. The cleaning staff came right away and said that the mess was due to maintenance doing some repair work. That didn't account for the awful smell. I immediately went out and bought candles. When we went to eat there were only knives! The front desk said 'sorry, but we are under new management and the rooms are in the process of being updated'. thanks but no thanks for the utensils! Would not recommend unless you only care about hanging at the pool.

Getting run down

We went up for the Illinois State Bar Association meeting last weekend which is always in Lake Geneva, but I haven't been for maybe 10 years. As I understand it, the Cove is basically a series of condominiums which then are rented out by management. While the location of the Cove is great, it does not appear that they have spent any money on it to speak of in years. The Cove advertises a business center with a computer and printer Although I brought a computer, it was really important that I print off an e-mail, but when I wen down to the office they said they no longer have a business center. The room itels was a very bad experience. The furntiure would be something you would expect in a mobile home. The chairs and couch had so little support that they hurt you back to sit in them. The TV in the upstairs loft was something that I thought no loger worked with digital conversion (bulky buuble screen tv).. When I checked out the person at the front desk asked how the stay was. SInce she asked, I decided to tell her. When I did, she said it was the condo owners responsibility to furnish the condo as if all wanted was an explanation of why the room was so run down. That doens't come close to resolving the unsatisfactory condition of the property. It's really a shame. We used to take the kids to the Cove when they were little. It never was glamourous, but it always was convenient to downtown and adequate. Can't see ever going back. My guess is a lot of other people have reached that conclusion, because th parking lot on the weekend was about 30% full. It used to be hard to find a place to park once upon a time. . I

Great Location, Room Lacking

We went up for Memorial Day weekend and had a great experience reserving, checking in. Staff was very helpful and checked us in early so we could get to the pool. Our room location was wonderful as it was on the 4th floor and had a balcony that overlooked a little creek. The pool was really nice and provided towels which was a nice surprise. Hotel location is also great as you can easily walk to the lake and downtwon. The room however, was sadly lacking. We had three kids and when I went to open the pull out couch, there was a note that said "Do not open, bed broken". Well, with three kids and no where else to sleep, we opened the bed. It was broken at the bottom, but otherwise okay for the little ones. The shower in the bathroom, had water was also broken and water went everywhere. The decor was 1980's with artificial flowers everywhere. We didn't spend much time there, so it was not too bad. The staff said that they are slowly updating the rooms, but that many of the couches are broken. I would stay there again, but not in the same room!

Nice Hotel

We stayed during the winter months and found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. Has everything you need right next to the lake and shopping. Staff was friendly, we left some stuff behind and they found it and were responsive.

Winter Retreat

Post Christmas, looking to unwind and relax, we found The Cove. For us it was a Jem. Large suite, fireplace, kitchen and dinning table made for a weekend to read, rest and relax as we walked through Lake Geneva. Definitely will book again.

spacious

Our suite was bigger than many apartments, and the in-bath jacuzzi was nice touch, as was the cozy gas fireplace.
