A family vacation to Lake Geneva doesn’t need to sink your budget. This resort town, an hour west of Lake Michigan, may have Gilded Age mansions owned by some of the wealthiest business people in Chicago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rub two nickels together and create an unforgettable holiday. Save a few pence for kayak rentals, souvenirs and an extra pint by staying at one of these cheap hotels in Lake Geneva – bookable on Culture Trip.

Whether you’re the kind of traveler who needs a pull-out couch for the kids or a two-person whirlpool for the spouse, Sky Lodge Inn & Suites has you covered for budget prices. Watch the boats sail nearby at the Lake Delavan Community Park, and take a drive down to Geneva Lake for ice cream at the Frosty Moose or frothy brews at Harpoon Willie’s. Nail a hat-trick and hit up the Mars Resort on Lake Como for old-school barbecue on the water.

Comfort Suites once again will keep your wallet cozy, this time a little closer to Geneva Lake.

On a rainy day, send the kids down to the indoor pool and get comfortable with your partner inside your two-person hot tub. Just make sure they throw the Do Not Disturb tag on the door when they leave.

    Live the lakeside lifestyle, without the high property taxes, at Geneva Wells Motel. If their king rooms with kitchenettes don’t leave you with enough space, feel free to stretch your legs across their three-acres of green space. We doubt you’ll spend much time at the Geneva Wells Motel, though; when you’re not hanging by the pool in the summer, you’ll likely be exploring Big Foot Beach State Park, only ten minutes away.
