Great place if you have younger kids and want busy place to congigate with friends around pool area while kids play. If you are older and looking for early restful night, probably not the best place for you on the weekend. Breakfast was excellent and staff was very accommodating.

We picked this hotel because it had a great pool, and a wonderful breakfast included! We were very happy with the hot breakfast, and our daughter loved the pool! We would definitely stay there again for the amenities we received!

the swimming pool is located in the middle of all the rooms and you can hear kids screaming and playing , when all you want is peace and quiet from a long day of traveling. the fridge in the room had some food left in it from the last guest, also a clothing item was hanging on the shower curtain...

Dear J B, Thank you for writing a review. I apologize you didn't feel you had a relaxing stay. Our atrium and pool area does tend to be a highly used area, especially on weekends when families are getting away with the kids. Our hotel has a total of 150 rooms and only a small portion is located around the... More

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff is courteous and efficient. The free breakfast at Champs is very good and offers a variety of breakfast items. I like that there is a sports bar/restaurant attached to the hotel which is very convenient. They also had a shuttle to the casino.... More

Too many people in and around pool area. Very loud around pool area. No guide for the TV. Low water pressure in the shower. Hallways smelled... More

The hotel itself was fine - it was clean and staff was polite. However, it was VERY CROWDED. The pool and seating area around it (which is very large), were packed. I paid extra for a poolside room but due to the amount of people, I didn't even feel safe having my young children swim there. This hotel rents to... More

Dear Sam, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I want to inform you of some great news, we've decided to no longer allow pool parties on Fridays and Saturdays. As you mentioned, it was causing way too much crowding which in turn was not fair to our guests. Thanks to you and others that commented on the crowding, it didn't... More

Normally not enamored of Best Western, but this "Plus" version was clean, quiet, and the best BW I have stayed at. Came for a three-day meeting and was greeted by a very pleasant front-desk staff. Room was good-size, bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean (shower water a bit lukewarm). Only complaint was small elevators, and not many of them. The... More

By far the nicest BEST WESTERN I have ever stayed at! I travel for work and am a Best Western Reward member, this was by far the cleanest, nicest BW I have stayed at yet! Staff was very friendly! There is a restaurant/bar connected that was absolutely delicious! The "free" breakfast was a hot/cold breakfast in the attached restaurant and... More

This hotel is in a great location in Dubuque. Rooms were clean and updated. Very nice pool area. As with all hotel pools, too many munchkins in the pool to enjoy it. There was a fly fishing convention going on during our stay, my only complaint with the convention, when you are not part of it, is to have the... More
