4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed for a business conference and it is a great location and is directly attached to the convention hall. Service was good and the hotel was well maintained. Two areas to be improved. I requested a king size bed but ended up with a room with two twins. Both beds were extremely soft and uncomfortable. Also I used the... More

My mother and I were doing a Fall trip along the Mississippi River. We spent one night at Grand Harbor. It is a lovely location...right along the River! You can walk along the River walkway and enjoy the beautiful scenery. They are really nice shops and dining all around. We had dinner and breakfast (the next morning) at Tony Roma's... More

My mother and I went on a little visit to Iowa over spring break and chose this hotel as our spot to stay while in Dubuque. They had special packages and were very accommodating when allowing us to switch one of the deals (we couldn't go bowling due to arthritis so they gave us arcade vouchers instead). Rooms are well...

A family get together over Easter weekend at the Grand Harbor Waterpark, Dubuque, IA was a lot of fun. Easy three hour drive from Chicago to Dubuque. The hotel was in a nice downtown area on the Mississippi river walkway, near the museum and aquarium, also near the casino. We thought the rate was reasonable at $119.00 with use of... More

We stayed here with 3 small children and it was perfect! Room was great size and clean. Waterpark is wonderful and easy to watch all 3 children from one spot so it's relaxing and was not too busy even though it was spring break weekend. We did not use the casino but did visit the mississippi river museum as entry... More

We enjoyed our visit last year as we took ad vantage of a great package special, we are family friendly and we do not use the casino. The package deal of room, water park and breakfast at tony Roma's was a perfect package deal.

We enjoyed staying at the Harbor Resort, even though we aren't casino or waterpark people. It was well kept, had friendly staff, and was walking distance to lots of downtown restaurants. Debuque had so many good restaurants that we never got to the on site Tony Romas, but for tired travelers having such a good place right there in the... More

This is the coldest waterpark I've ever been in. We've been to several others and never have I been cold. After moving around for 30 min. it got better, but I was never comfortable as I've been other places. It seemed kind of pricey for what you get as well. The last park we stayed at had several "big" rides... More

Time for the hotel to remodel. I stayed there when it was new and its gone downhill. Also it would be nice if there was a continental breakfast. I don't like having to go into a restaurant and pay for breakfast where I'm staying. One of the first things I was told when I checked in was that it is... More

Great place for the kids to play. The only problem with the hotel is the elevator problem. 2 elevators for this size hotel with the waterpark being on the 1st floor and check in on the 2nd floor causes frustration. Very difficult to get an elevator that wasn't packed with people. We ended up taking the stairs the whole stay.
