This is a nice hotel, but it is expensive and showing signs of age. The beds are doubles and not queens and not very comfortable. There is quite a bit to do in the area, but the hotel is just average. I have stayed at much nicer resorts for less money.

Highly recommend, very clean and the staff was wonderful. Tony Romas had great ambiance and appetizers. The casino across the street is very fun (over 90 percent payout). Excellent place for a walk and a good meal by the river as well. The waterpark was very nice in comparison to the Dells. Quaint and fun for small kids.

I have stayed here several times for work trips. The rooms are nice, modern and come with a small fridge and microwave. It has never been overly crowded. I highly suggest the Woodfire Grill over at the casino. The hotel is very conveniently located.

We had a small family reunion to celebrate 2 birthdays and reserved 3 rooms for all of us. The package deal included the rooms, waterpark tickets and also Mississippi River Museum tickets for a wonderful weekend get-together. The waterpark is showing some signs of age, but has a good variety of depths and activities for the whole batch of us... More

Our room was recently updated and clean. We had a corner room facing the River- awesome views. There seemed to be furniture missing- a lone floor lamp sat in the corner - no chairs or table near it! The desk did have a comfortable chair but no electric outlet available for plugging in a laptop. The internet was free but... More

Took a quick overnight trip to Dubuque for a little gambling and a lot of food. :D Two adults = no need for waterpark. For $89.99 + tx and fees, we had comfy room with one queen bed, a pull out couch, raised toilet and lower side/slightly more accessible shower. If you need a roll-in shower, you'll have to get...

Every time we go to Dubuque we stay at the Grand Harbor. With good rates, nice, clean rooms, the waterfront location, and of course, the awesome waterpark, there's really no reason to stay anywhere else.

We took our 11-year-old here on the way home from our trip to St. Louis. The hotel is beautiful! Our room overlooked the bay and downtown Dubuque. The waterpark is OK but there are not very many tables for the amount of people who were in there. Also, the waterpark is not only for hotel guests. The passes are sold... More

We made the mistake of not noticing the "Waterpark" portion of the name. My wife and I hoped to get away for 3 quiet romantic days in the middle of the week and instead were surrounded by hundreds of frantic, screaming kids. Thank goodness that our room was a suite on the 7th floor. At least we could hole up... More
