Overall the hotel was great. The room was clean and quiet. The location to downtown is great. The pool and hot tub are small. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. This is the second stay at this hotel and it has been great. Will stay here again

The hotel is located in the historic part of Dubuque. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was adequate but it did smell a bit musty. The window would not open and the air conditioning unit was too loud to leave on overnight so it was a very stuffy night, The room was dated but the bed was comfortable.... More

This hotel has always had a "better than everyone" attitude. Their rates are "comparable" to other hotels in Dubuque. For some reason this town and the hotels there think they are a "tourist" destination and they can charge for rooms twice what any other area charges. Pay a high price for a mediocre room. Pay for your breakfast $$$ Today... More

The Holiday Inn Dubuque is in a great location right in the heart of Downtown with many great restaurants and options within walking distance. The hotel itself was clean but other than the lobby, which looks newly renovated, is in a bad need of updating. The rooms are dark and have old decor and older beds. There are no power... More

We started a road trip on a whim, and had no advance reservation. We spied this hotel from a few streets away and we're happy to get a room. The hotel complex is fairly spread out so it was a bit of a walk to get to the room, of note for those with mobility issues. Elevators were close to... More

Hotel staff is always accommodating. We stayed with another couple (they had own reservation) - but we checked in before they did and asked the front desk if we could be on the same floor. Not only did they put us on the same floor but next door to each other. The rooms are nice and priced reasonably. The bartender... More

We stayed here one night and it was a good stay. Clean, central location, ample parking and a fair value. The only down thing was the WiFi was not very strong. But I didn't need it for much and just used their machines in the lobby. I would stay again and recommend if you are staying downtown. Had a great... More
