This is a very unusual motel. It seems to have e been a "fly-in" fly-tel back in the 60's, with its own landing strip. Eventually it was purchased by new owners and the flying part was ended (though there is still a giant troop transport plane in the front yard), and someone got the idea to add a bunch of... More

My husband and I stayed overnight and were so impressed. We wish we would have been there early enough to take a tour but are hoping to next time. I was initially skeptical of the whole thing but was instantly excited when we walked into the lobby. There is a large round fireplace surrounded by barber chairs and it is... More

Stayed here as a kid at least 35 years ago. Was a little hesitant when we pulled in the parking lot and even more hesitant walking in the lobby and seeing the old barber chairs circles around the fireplace but that SOON changed after we took a tour of the fantasy suites. We would have stayed in one of those... More

We traveled to Don Q Inn May 15th & 16th for a 2 night stay. My husband and I stayed there as a mini get-away when we got married in 2003. Five kids later, we decided it would be awesome to go back and relive some good memories. Actually the 1st trip with no kids ever! 1st off, I need... More

We loved the Don Q inn.we had so much fun. We are going back again this year and planning on staying in one of their theme rooms. They have lots of things to do at the hotel. The kids loved being able to go inside the airplane. It was awesome.

Don Q was a perfect place to unwind after spending the afternoon at House on the Rock. This place is quirky place with welcoming and friendly front desk staff. Although the room was like stepping back in time (think early 80's), it was surprisingly comfortable, so quiet that I felt like I had noise cancelling headphones on, & had a... More

First, this hotel is quirky, ironic and fun. If your looking for a run of the mill hotel, this isn't your place. If you want to stay somewhere a little different, make your reservations now. We stayed in the Northern Lights room, which was awesome. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the cable worked. Loved walking through the tunnel... More

We had a family gathering in Dodgeville on the past Sat and many of us stayed at the Don Q Inn. We pleasantly surprised by the comfortable rooms, helpful staff, and quaint lobby area. We gathered at the collection of barber chairs which surrounded a huge fire place on that cold winter night. Another group gathered on the second floor... More

If you want modern and contemporary, then the Don Q Inn is not for you. This inn has that "your old grandma's house" kind of feel. It had a lot of old stuff and knick knacks, some you might now only see in museums or antique shops. In the lobby alone, there are more than a dozen barber's chairs arranged... More
