We had such a great time, the hotel is lovely, the flowers surrounding it, and the River, are amazing, what a good waterpark, our grandchildren absolutely loved it, this waterpark was the best I have ever experienced, with the rafts down the slides, and also the climbing ropes, I will definitely be back. Thanks for a great time. The only... More

Stayed here because we wanted somewhere close to downtown. Knew it had a waterpark, but was hoping we could use the pool or hot tub, but would have had to pay $20 for that privilege. Staff was not very welcoming and the sheets on our bed were so wrinkled that it looked like someone had slept in them! The best... More

The rooms are average, and the water park is dated, but our grand children, ages 4-9 had a blast. We probably would not revisit this place, as there are better places to see for the price we paid. There were 3 weddings in the surrounding area and the restaurant was crowded and over priced for kids. Dubuque, Ia is a... More

Spent a few days traveling the upper Mississippi River from St Louis to St Paul. One of the nights was spent at the Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark inn Dubuque IA. I had never been to Dubuque before and found it to be a great spot. Lots of stuff going on downtown from large casino to many small bars and... More

We spent three days in Dubuque and had a wonderful time. The Grand Harbor played a central role in this. From the front desk at check in to checking out, we had a wonderful time. My wife and I had three of our grandkids with us. They were 6, 12, and 15 years of age. They all enjoyed the waterpark... More

Our room was modern, clean, and had a spectacular view of the Mississippi River. The waterpark is small and a little rough around the edges, but perfect for an overnight stay with small children. Safe and reasonably clean, with plenty of lifeguards. Given that you're paying half or even a third of a big resort, I think this is a... More

We took a few days with our son, daughter-in-law and 5 grandchildren, ages 7-11 to the Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark. The hotel had some updating done recently. The rooms were larger than usual, as well as quiet and the beds were comfortable. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the waterpark--they were kept active for several hours each time we visited it....
