Upon arriving we enjoyed the beautiful view of the river right up to finding the previous guests dirty socks on the floor by the window. It made us wonder what else in the room wasn't clean. That coupled with having to wade through a gauntlet of smokers every time we walked in spoiled what might have been a pleasant experience.

Love the location of this hotel, walk to the museum, casino and restaurants. Beautiful river walk ! The room is clean, and just perfect for a family of 4. There's a microwave and mini fridge in the room. Kids loved the waterpark. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The accommodations were just fantastic. Great river views of the Mississippi right off our balcony. Room was immaculate and next morning's included breakfast was one of the best I've had. Employees were very friendly as well and check inn was very easy.

I've stayed here a number of times. Usually, once or twice each year, and usually for business. As far as location, its right in the middle of the action. The convention center is attached by enclosed walkway, the Mississippi River museum is right across the parking lot, and the Diamond Jo is across the street. Lots to do if you're... More

I loved the rooms at this hotel. I have stayed twice and plan to stay again every time I visit Dubuque. It is really convenient that you can get into the Waterpark at noon even when the room is not ready. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a great room.

This was our fifth stay at Grand Harbor. We met a group of six other families for a weekend to celebration a family special occasion. The group was age 5 up to seniors in their 80s. The kids and adults alike enjoyed the waterpark. It was clean and well kept. On Friday they did a DJ with music and games.... More

We have stayed here in the past and that is why we chose to spend the extra money and stay again. We were extremely disappointed in the available options and the room in general was a huge disappointment
