Nice hotel with nice view of the river and bridge. Water Park is great for kids as well as adults with jaccuzzi, pool and food court. Nice restaurants and the Mississippi River Museum was very interesting.

Had fun in the water park and arcade room. Location is close to the ice arena for Iowa Games Hockey. Also close to other area attractions. Our room has a nice view of the river and river side walkway..

We have stayed at this hotel several times and every time we do it is a great experience. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and lots of fun things to do. Within walking distance of the casino, Stone Cliff Winery and the museum.

Starting off, this is a great place to bring the kids. Water park and arcade are fun and a guarenteed good time for families. The location is excellent. Next to the Grand River Center, Diamond Jo's Casino, and a really fabulous casino. Not to mention riverfront to the Mighty Mississippi. We came with a group, had the opportunity to see... More

Great value with the waterpark and museum package. We have a 7 and a 2 year old. They loved the waterpark. Older kids might not enjoy so much since it lacks a "thrill ride" but plenty to do for the young ones. Only complaint about the waterpark was that there were more flat tubes than useable ones (for lazy river... More

Spent the night 1/8/15. Room was very clean and roomy. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was small but clean and well stocked. Yes check in is on the 2nd floor but there is ample signing to let you know. The woman at check in was in training and did a fine job. Would definitely stay again

We stayed here 12/26/14 to meet up with family for the holidays in between Wisconsin and Iowa. The room was nice, view of river was very cool and hotel staff and accommodations were overall good. I did read other reviews about the 2nd floor lobby being a pain and I completely agree, very strange! I also think that it added... More

Beds were VERY hard, we woke up so sore. It's been a week since we were there and our skin still is so dry, itchy and we have rashes! So many chemicals in the water that it tastes salty if you get it in your mouth and burns your eyes worse than any other pool I have ever been in!... More
