I read the reviews and was prepared for what we found. It was not a bad stay but not as charming as these other reviews had led me to believe. The wax indians in the lobby were a bit jarring walking in at midnight. The decor isn't so much retro as it is chevy conversion van. There was no air... More

The furniture was old, but comfortable. There was a ceiling fan, micro, small frig and cable TV....all that I needed! I was very satisfied with the rate... More

We enjoyed staying at the Canfield! My husband and I couldn't find a place to stay in Dubuque due to a convention til we happened upon the Canfield. It's..funky! but clean and a super location. We had a two room 'suite' on the top floor, right out of the 1960s, for $75. It was like staying at grandma's house. The... More

This place is amazing for families who need a large room without spending much money. Pros: -- Clean -- Our room with two beds was twice as large as a regular hotel room -- Great history lesson for the kids! Actual keys for the doors. Pink sink in our room. Old-timey radio in our room for decoration (didn't work but... More

the canfield is wonderful and historic.Thank goodness for this place,because it has the best affordable price and i was able to stay and enjoy beautiful dubuque much longer,than if i had to pay almost 100 a night to stay at the julien inn or holiday inn,with all their big brand luxuries,they cannot compare to the historic comfort and great affordability...

It was very clean every room had its own flair. I felt very safe. Great parking and nice people at the desk. Have your picture taken with the indians in the lobby! It's not 30$ a night. We paid over 70$. Still a nice place!!

I loved the Canfield Hotel! It was like stepping back to the fifties with the decor. It's a historical building that has been maintained as a hotel since the late 1800's. It's clean, simple and each room has a unique, old-fashioned, decor. I found the owners and the staff friendly and helpful. With no prompting from me, the owner upgraded... More
