You can tell the Ridge Hotel put a lot of effort into their renovations. The hotel is clean, modern, and has great amenities. We had never stayed here before, but came for our anniversary on a weekend getaway and had the perfect time staying here. We loved going out by the pool and taking advantage of the bar on the...

My new wife and I just had our wedding weekend reception here. From a wedding standpoint they knew how to throw a good party. Perfect execution and dinner performance to a dime. Where they were lackadaisical was in the lodging. I must say I've stayed in lots of resorts and truly what my wife and I experienced in terms of...

We visited the Ridge for a Mother's Day weekend family trip. The rooms were comfortable, spacious, and updated. The pool was fun for the kids and grown ups. By far our favorite space was the outdoor bar and glass fireplace. A lovely view for enjoying cocktails in the late afternoon and early evening. We returned after a wonderful dinner inside...

Friendly staff, clean room, but the pool area needs a major upgrade. Pool chairs were the worst I have ever seen at a hotel. The pool towels were the size for a small child. The hotel allowed other guests to bring a "boom box" and coolers to the pool. Very loud and empty beer cans all over.

We travel frequently all over the country. The Ridge in Lake Geneva WI is the dirtiest hotel I have ever seen. The interior of the ice bucket was covered with MOLD. There was mold and mildew on the shower stall doors. The mat in the shower was past extremely dirty. You felt dirtier after taking a shower than before. There...

Visited the ridge for a reunion weekend. The staff were very nice, but for a recently renovated resort the rooms were pretty generic and motel like. The food for our large party was just ok, they gave two starch sides with the chicken the first night. The buffet the second night was much better. The desserts were a huge disappointment...

The front desk was very accommodating before, during, and after our stay. The rooms, the lobby, and the pool area was very clean and the people were friendly. Club 55 was lots of fun and the bar tender was very nice
