The room was a small suite with a kitchen, living area and flat screen tv, plus bedroom with another flat screen. Our son... More

Once again we have stayed at the Mainstay Suites Dubuque and had an overall great experience.

Nice hotel with a good breakfast with lots of choices. It was clean and plenty of room. The bed was comfortable, plenty of closet space. It includes a refrigerator, stove and microwave. It has a counter and two chairs if you want to eat in your room. Nice place for an extended stay!
