Room was nice and clean, Great location for attending the Irish Hooley at the Star Brewerey. Room rate was high if you don't use the water park but convenience to the Hooley ( one block) eliminated the hassle of driving.

The hotel was very nice, clean and nestled right on the water with beautiful views The river walk right outside the door, and the casino just across the street. I had my teenage son with me, and we enjoyed the arcade, but the waterpark is really geared toward younger kids so did even use that. I had wished I would... More

Hi, we had a family "meet" halfway between 2 daughters' location and a third as we had been at Grand Harbour 5 years ago for the wedding. We like the location, the nearby museum, the Irish music festival and the waterpark. But the rooms were on the expensive side and in one case, had a broken toilet (it flushed but... More

Just a weekend getaway to visit the great Mississippi River. The Grand Harbor is right on the river and close to whatever entertainment suits your bill. While we did not avail ourselves of the waterpark, it sure looked like fun. We did a sight seeing cruise on the Spirit of Dubuque, visited the National Mississippi River Museum (really requires 2...

This hotel had a really good rate plus the staff was very accommodating. The view from our room was beautiful. The room was clean as well as the whole hotel. It seems like some hotels are sort clean, but I felt so comfortable. Nice bed & bedding too. I have stayed here a number of times.

Rooms are very basic, but overall clean and we slept comfortably. My kids enjoyed the waterpark, although it's in need of a little upkeep. I believe that this hotel is a bit over priced for the accommodations.

We've stayed here a few times now and it's becoming quite apparent that this establishment needs to update all around. We stay here because it's close to family and of course kids love water. However, even our 7 year old wasn't quite as excited about the waterpark this time. The waterpark overall could use some new life and a good... More

The Grand Harbor was a great experience for our family during our stay. The rooms were clean and welcoming. We saw our cleaning staff in the hall several times and they did not acknowledge us. We said "Hello" and they did not seem to want to be bothered. We did tip our room stay because they did a good job... More

The rooms are always great. Everything is clean and well kept. They have a nice workout room, a business room with computer, printer and internet access and conference rooms. The location is perfect! The views from the rooms on the riverside are almost breathtaking! Tony Romo's is attached and has a beautiful patio along the river to dine outside and... More
