“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking for a clean and low price to stay, this is the place for you. The king size bed was comfortable. The room and bathroom was on the small size. This certainly isn't a luxury hotel but it met our needs for a quick one night stay. We ate at the Mexican restaurant next door and it was terrible.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for several days, and it was a very good value. It is, of course, a budget hotel, and while that is not something we forgot during our stay, the motel rose above that standard with clean rooms, friendly staff, comfortable beds, good water pressure, and a waffle iron included in breakfast.

Our room also included a coffee-maker and refrigerator. Some rooms had microwaves. While the furnishings were basic and a bit worn, overall, the decor was fine and things worked, and there was enough light. The room size is pretty average, but there is a rack with hangers in the room instead of a closet, and the bathroom has a shorter counter than many hotels.

The wifi is password protected. Although the wifi signals was only medium in my room, the speed was pretty good.

It had the thin, scratchy towels of a budget hotel, weak coffee, and only generic shampoo and soap (no conditioner or moisturizer). Also no iron or ironing board in the room. As expected in this class of motel. The breakfast room has a few tables in the small lobby, but was better than other budget hotels I have been to. Most days, it was not that busy--this is not that big of a property. Options included donuts, toast, raisin bran, fruit loops, waffles, yogurt, coffee, and juice. One day bananas were offered.

There is a washer and dryer onsite, and a public computer available for use. The location is convenient for Dubuque as long as you have a car, and perhaps 20 minute drive to Galena--not great, but might be worth the savings. It is located in a shopping strip, so there are lots of stores and restaurants nearby. The adjacent Mexican restaurant is mediocre, but popular with locals and has some drink specials and the like. The view from the motel is parking lot and road.

After comparing hotels in the area online we chose this Super 8. It was easy to locate from the directions. The room, bathroom and whole hotel were very clean and well managed. We received help promptly when we asked for it. The personnel were very cordial. It was a pleasant experience overall.

We would stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: Specify first floor if you don't want to carry your luggage up the stairs.

The location of this hotel is great, beautiful area to visit. Hotel was nothing special but very clean. Beds and pillows were very comfortable.The heat and air conditioning worked fine but as stated in another review, there is no quilt or comforter on the bed. Many restaurants in the are and the casinos are within just a few miles. Continental breakfast is always a plus when you're traveling. The staff was very friendly and the room we had was quiet.
