The hotel is older and could use some updating. Our room was large, clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. However, the room had a very weird smell. Almost like it previously had a bad odor and they were trying to cover it up with a heavy deodorizer. It wasn't enough to make us change rooms but it's worth noting.... More

This was the perfect stop for us on a multi-day road trip with our family. We were exhausted and hungry and saw on Trip Advisor that they had very inexpensive rooms and even though the rate at the desk was about $95+taxes, we were happy to stop here and not search further. The lobby is big and luxe-feeling - the... More

It is located within walking distance to lots of downtown venues. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. They offer a nice breakfast and WiFi also. It is close to the boat dock where Mississippi River cruises depart and arrive. They have a pool and exercise room.

A typical city-center Holiday Inn. Rather worn but well-located. Prices very competitive for the area and even better than the (newer) Holiday Inn Express on the Interstate. Free parking is a big bonus and not as complex as some might indicate. Downtown Dubuque is actually really nice just to wander, even if there are few specific sights. My room was... More

We stayed 1 night at this hotel, while in town for a USTA tournament. It was a perfect spot to stay. There were several great restaurants within walking distance. The rooms were just right and the parking area was perfect.

We stayed here on 4th of July. It was an unplanned, spontaneous road trip and they had availability and the price was reasonable. Hotel is right near the bridge and waterfront area. 1/2 mile walk to the Diamond Joes casino and they also offer a 24 hour shuttle to and from the casino. Just let them know at the front... More

It has been awhile since we last stayed here and it looks as if it has been recently updated. The fellow at the desk who checked us in was a most pleasant fellow and made us feel very welcome. The room was spacious and CLEAN, the bathroom was in excellent order. We would definitely stay here again.

Always like this place. Great location. Walk to restaurants, casinos nearby, next to the river and downtown activities. Great staff. They allow pets, one of the main reasons we go here. Plenty of parking.
