I had a sigh of relief when I walked in. This hotel is grouped with the other budget hotels, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Check-in literally took 30 seconds. A free snack was offered to all guests checking in. The room is like any other extended stay hotel, apartment sized appliances, small couch, etc. The only things I... More

So-so hotel, fairly clean, but dated. Nothing special about it, other than it is cheap. Nearby to everything you need. Staff was friendly, breakfast fare was good. Worked out just fine for a several day stay for work.

As an Army family, we cruise the Midwest during the holidays. Long hours with kids in the car warrant a relaxing stay at a nice place. Mainstay Dubuque did not disappoint. It is an extended stay hotel, so there was a kitchenette in the room. The pack and play was in the room when we arrived with clean sheets to... More

Stayed at this location twice in December. Was a great stay, and they took real good care of me. They have a stove top, pots, and pans. Pretty much everything you need to make a good dinner minus the food. Great value. Definitely enjoyed my stay, and will stay here again in the future.

I was very impressed with all aspects of my stay!!! Even though cleanliness, appearance, and the breakfast are very important to any stay and were at a high standard at this MainStay; hospitality will significantly affect the overall experience. It was in the hospitality area that this MainStay really shined. Molly was at the front desk when I checked in.... More

This is thee best place to stay. Huge room with living room, kitchen,bath and bedroom. Could buy some groceries and eat all week without going out and spending more money every night. Very quiet too! More than enough closet and dresser draw space than I even needed. I felt like I was at home making meals for dinner and they... More

Sorry to say, it was only one night. The toom was very large, clean, and vlose to many restraurants. I wish we had more time to explore Dubuque. They were very busy, so there was no place to sit at breakfast..no problem; they opened a conference room for us.

We had been driving all day and were delighted to have a large suite to relax in. It is close yo several restraurants and lots of parking. The breakfast was Ok: they were really full, there was no place to sit, so they opened a conference room for us. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable.

Stayed here during a family reunion and we found the staff very efficient and the two room suite very adequate. Clean and God TV and wi-fi connections. The downside was the breakfast (a bit below average) and the fact that maid service is on request. It is designed for a few nights stay with limited frills.

The hotel is so so. Rooms were clean, but sofa bed was not much! Location is good and on the western edge of the city. I know it was the weekend for Oktoberfest in Galena and with people coming to see the leaves, it was pretty slim pickings for hotel choices. The cost of this hotel was kind of expensive.
