Nice water park but very pricy

The room was not very large and the beds were small. Hotel staff were very nice. Very overpriced in my opinion.

The water park is quite small and there is not a lot of sitting area. Its perfect for mall kids. It needs some facelift.

We stayed for 2 nights over spring break and had a great time! The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. The waterpark was a nice size for my 6 and 8 year old. We walked to the River Museum and to go bowling.

We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights over spring break and had a really good time. My son had a blast in the zero depth pool, lazy river, water slides, and play structure. It was neat that the big water bucket dumped so frequently too. My son did wipe out once on the inner tube slide, but... More

I can not tell you enough good stuff about this place! Great for the whole family ours was 4y-43y old. You don't have to hover over your kids because it is safe lots of lifeguards everywhere and shallow water for even the smallest tots. Very fun even for the adults!

We took our 10 year old son and 17 year old nephew there for a few hours for something to do. They offer food, mini lockers, and a nice arcade. We able to drop them off for 3 hours while we checked out some local fun. The kids had a blast and we all got to do our own thing... More

We just got back from Grand Harbor and our family had a great time. This was the sixth indoor water park we have been to and are veterans at this type of trip. The water park was perfect for our girls ages four and seven. It was not to big, not to small and had just the right amount of... More

I forgot to mention how loud the waterpark area was, my youngest child was so scared of the noise that she would not play or let go of us. There has to be something that can help this issue. The locker/restrooms were FREEZING!!!! Turn the heat up or something and the bathrooms were not very clean at all for the... More

Each fall when we come to Dubuque for Fire School we stay here. Each room has a fridge and microwave. Really like having a fridge! We stay an extra night because it is so relaxing. Great bar with engaging bar tender.
