Last minute stay while on the road.

Posted Aug 15, 2014
While traveling home from work in Wisconsin, I decided to stop in Dubuque Iowa for the night. Expedia helped me find this hotel located right downtown. It was clean and well maintained and reasonably priced. Service staff was friendly and knowledgable. I didn't eat in the hotel but there are good restaurants located nearby. I would gladly stay there again.

Great Reviews!

Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: The Service and food was great!
Cons: The spa and swimming pool have a lot of bleach. I have allergies and I wished to stay longer time.Using less chlorine can make your guests comfortable
Location: Of course the Turtle Museum and the Boat tours also the music bands and city tours! Missing the Holiday Inn shopping store!
Every thing was great. Only the spa and swimming pool have a lot of bleach. I have allergies and I wished to stay longer time but the smell was high in chlorine. Food was great! We missed place Samsung 5X camera charge and wire in the room #328. How we can get it back? Those issues, service was great! Thank you! Lia Schulze:)

Nice property

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Hotel was a last minute choice and we were pleased. Wanted room with whirlpool tub and it delivered one very well. Room decor is a little dated and a/c was noisy. Staff said it would be taken care of by maintenance ( we didn't report until next am) Restaurant was nice and food was good. Overall a good place to stay

Downtown Dubuque

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Location of our room (next to pool and hot tub); entrance/exit nearby for our dog; convenient; clean; nice staff; and comfortable bed.
Location: I'm a native and know the area well, i.e., the Fourth Street Elevator, the Casino and harbor, Sunshine Café is close (breakfast :), Main Street shops.
We were home for a funeral. Great accommodations: we brought our Shih Tzu with us and were happy that all rooms were non-smoking opposed to another hotel that would only give us a smoking room with our pet. We asked for and received entry level room, pet friendly, and late arrival. We will stay there again. It was very nice. Thank you.

Nice rate shame about the plumbing!

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Location and rates
Cons: Get some sound insulation!
Location: Dubuque is a great walking city, there the river walk, the museum, Main street shopping and eateries. Plenty of history and the people are great.
Plumbing increadably noisy. Could tell when someone in adjacent rooms or above or below us was filling (or emptying) bathtub, or taking a shower or other things one does in the bathroom.

It was a nice comfortable hotel.Very good location downtown, a short walk to many restaurants and attractions. Our room was clean on check-in, but they didn't clean the room the next day, just brought us some clean towels. There were often dirty dishes in the hallway from old room service. Be sure to check you bill because we never ordered from the restaurant but there was over $60 charged to our room from the restaurant.
