I stayed here for a wedding and was pleasantly surprised that it was a basic, clean place to stay walking distance to everything. Price was great and the owners very helpful and friendly. There was a t.v. and fridge in the room which I always like for my water bottles and fruit.

It's going to be extremely difficult to write this review without profanity!!! We booked a weekend at the plaza motel for a family reunion. We drove 3 1/2 hours to Lake Geneva and found the motel. When we were ready to turn in for the night, my wife started having an allergic reaction. (She's allergic to dogs.) Upon further examination,... More

Reasonably priced compared to other nearby hotels and resorts. Only about a 5 minute walk to downtown Lake Geneva, the Rivera, and Geneva Lake. They've got a pool with a nice gazebo where you can relax. Was glad that they are pet friendly too. There's a park about a block away where you can take your dog for longer walks.... More

We just returned from Lake Geneva and had a wonderful time! The owners Bob and Hanna could not have been more accommodating :) The room was very nice with fridge and microwave. Plenty of towels!!! Perfect if you want to be close to downtown, esp. by the Lake Shore path. The owners found out why we were there (to walk... More

Good location for walking downtown, but the room smelled and it was FREEZING!!! You would think they would turn on the heat before guests checked in to their room. Our dogs wouldn't settle down and the room smelled like mold. Outside the bugs swarmed us while walking our dogs. Nasty! Literally while sitting on the bed I felt itchy brcause... More

A small, pet friendly motel in a quite neighborhood. Very conveniently located, only a short walk from the lake and downtown. Friendly and accommodating owner. Microwave and refrigerator. Spacious bathroom. We parked the car when we got there and did not need it for the entire stay.

Reading some of the comments we had mixed thoughts. BUT- we have been so happily surprised. The room is spacious, the furniture is in great shape- maybe 70's- BUT I like that you can rub the vinyl down instead of sitting on a plush chair that hasn'tt been cleaned in weeks. Table, fridge w freezer and microwave. Older, CLEAN bathroom,... More

Stayed here with a friend and it was exactly what we wanted - super close to downtown lake geneva (so we could walk), had a nice outdoor pool, was clean, fridge in room, nice management - would def stay here again. It's def outdated but still worth the money compared to the rest of them.

After Staying at the Plaza Motel consistently for 4 years I highly recommend staying there. I make regular fall trips to Lake Geneva for windsurfing, cycling, kayaking, golf, etc. I’ve stayed in the local motels and as well as some high end water front sites. The popularity of Lake Geneva definitely causes peaks and valleys in the rates, i.e., a... More

“This is one of the classic drive up motels. If you can get a first story room it's a breeze to get your gear into a room, although the second story isn't bad at all.”
