“Seen better days”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2005

Just stayed at Timmerman's "Resort" in East Dubuque. Where do I start? The only good thing was a very friendly and attentive front desk staff. The pool was also nice, sort of. The spa (hot tub) was dirty. Signage around the hotel was paper taped to the wall.

The locker room was dirty. There is no "game room" to speak of. Only three arcade games and one of them was broke. The entire property seems run down. The carpeting was filthy. There was no morning newspaper at the door. Breakfast was marginal; akin to the breakfast at a Holiday Inn Express.

The front lobby was dismal and dated. The entire interior of the hotel was dimly lit and in need of repair. The elevator makes a horrible clunking sound and is in bad repair. It just seems like the property owners do not care anymore. It could be a nice place with some sound management and upkeep.

Stayed October 2005

If you are to look at the photos on the web site you think "wow this looks really classy!" well it's not, no hair dryer nothing fancy at all... you still have to use a key to get into your room.. and there belconey.. please it is an access to your room from the parking lot! One of our rooms didn't even have any water pressure we had to sit down in the tub to rinse the soap off! and when i said something when we checked out i didn't even get a sorry! Nothing she ignored me and said "well there isn't a coffee maker in every room and what room had no water pressure?" well for $100 a night there shure as hell should be a coffee maker, micro wave and a fridge in there and a lot bigger tv's!! we would have been treated better at a Super 8 and paid a heck of a lot less!!!

Just returned from a week-end in Galena/Dubuque. We booked this hotel because it was advertised as a Hotel and Resort. Buyer beware! This "Hotel" is not what I would consider a Hotel let alone a resort. I would consider this place to be a Motel. Perhaps it's old name was Motor Lodge. That would fit this place. This Motel is in desperate need of upgrading. The wallpaper and carpet look like they are from the 1960's. The hot tub was very noisy and the room only had a 19 Inch TV.
We had to put it up on a chair to see it from the bed. The seal was broken on the windows so you could barely see out of it. No hairdryer or microwave. My advice is to not stay here unless price ($165.00) a night and no frills (even though you are paying for some) appeal to you.
