We stayed one night (Sat, May 30), and the hotel was quite full with a wedding and car club meeting. Price paid was $159.99 for a two queen-sized bed room. Positives: Very good location that is convenient to anything in the Dubuque area. Free covered parking. Spacious lobby with plenty of sitting areas to convene if you're traveling in groups.... More

Very first impression - amazing! e arrived at 12:00 pm. I stopped in just to see what time check-in would be. They let us check-in then! We received the royal treatment. I could not have asked for better service. The rooms were beautiful an very clean. The only con was - the water was awful!! Usually you can mask it... More

This is the nicest Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in. Other reviewers made me nervous about old decor and some rooms being updated and others, not. I had no idea what to expect but had waited too long to find lodging on a holiday weekend (Memorial Day) and we got THE. LAST. room in the hotel, with only a... More

Staff was friendly. The hotel was clean. The lobby is huge which allowed us to gather for delivery pizza so our room wouldn't smell like pizza all weekend. The pool and hot tub are VERY small. We were here for a baseball tournament and there were a lot of kids in the pool. Breakfast buffet was decent for the price.... More

We stayed here last weekend. The location was excellent, as well as check in and parking. Breakfast is offered in the morning at the restaurant and it was perfect. You are right in the middle of downtown and parking is free and covered. The hotel is within walking distance of most everything. The hotel has been going thru an update... More

Very average hotel, super friendly staff but hotel does need some renovations. Our room on the 5th floor was either incredibly stuffy or freezing b/c of the need to run the air conditioner. Absolutely no ventilation or fan system in bathrooms. Shower is one big oval shower booth. Weird. Beds too soft & uncomfortable. We had to bring our pets... More

Helpful staff, clean facility. Emma, Brandy, and Sean were helpful to my sister when she stayed here in Dubuque, last week. She does not review, but I wanted to. She was more than satisfied with accommodations. Pool area clean. Helpful regarding local travel. Interested in customer needs. Thanks, M Fazio May 6, 2015

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
