This hotel is a nice hotel with a friendly staff and efficient. Nice restaurant with good food attached to the hotel. The hotel has some rooms facing the Mississippi River which looks at the really nice river walkway.

I took my 10 year old daughter and one of her friends to stay a weekend and visit the waterpark. The girls liked the waterpark, but then the areas they were interested in playing in were shut down and they got bored. The girls really enjoyed the arcade. there were a lot of different types of games to play. Several... More

My daughter had a blast and keeps asking to go back! The kiddie pool was perfect for my 2 year old and 4 year old niece. The restaurant Tony's Romas was great! We will definitely be back again this summer.

This was a very good stay. The experience there for me is better when renting a suite. It costs more per night, but it's worth it to me to have the space and comfort associated with that. The room was very clean and I especially liked that I could get it dark enough for a comfortable night's sleep.

This hotel is such a dump. Stayed there this past Friday night. Let me paint the picture for you... The checkin lobby and front desk is on the second floor. So upon arriving with your bags you must take the elevator with a bunch of people that have just gotten off the water slide to check in. The hotel rooms... More

The room was nice. No frills but it met our needs and was clean. The staff was friendly. The elevators were a little slow because the hotel was very busy with kids' parties. The view was beautiful and a pleasant surprise. We were there for a concert at the casino across the street which made this location really convenient.

I stayed for a business conference and it is a great location and is directly attached to the convention hall. Service was good and the hotel was well maintained. Two areas to be improved. I requested a king size bed but ended up with a room with two twins. Both beds were extremely soft and uncomfortable. Also I used the... More

My mother and I were doing a Fall trip along the Mississippi River. We spent one night at Grand Harbor. It is a lovely location...right along the River! You can walk along the River walkway and enjoy the beautiful scenery. They are really nice shops and dining all around. We had dinner and breakfast (the next morning) at Tony Roma's... More

My mother and I went on a little visit to Iowa over spring break and chose this hotel as our spot to stay while in Dubuque. They had special packages and were very accommodating when allowing us to switch one of the deals (we couldn't go bowling due to arthritis so they gave us arcade vouchers instead). Rooms are well...

Dear MisRad, Thank you so much for the 5-star rating and we are pleased you enjoyed our spring break packages.

A family get together over Easter weekend at the Grand Harbor Waterpark, Dubuque, IA was a lot of fun. Easy three hour drive from Chicago to Dubuque. The hotel was in a nice downtown area on the Mississippi river walkway, near the museum and aquarium, also near the casino. We thought the rate was reasonable at $119.00 with use of... More
