This is a great quick getaway for couples interested in a great time. This side of the resort is for ADULTS ONLY!!! It's great...no kids screaming, running the hallways, etc. The pool is ADULTS ONLY!!! We bring our own beverages, snacks, etc. and visit with other, make new friends, and enjoy. The room accomodations are 1st Class...large rooms, great pillow... More

We stayed here one night. The first room we were given had a leaky sink and there was water on the floor. The maint response was quick and because it would take them 30 minutes to fix we moved to another room. The rooms are done in dark drab colors as is the whole casino, maybe good color scheme for...

We stayed for 2 nights 3 days. We would recommend this to anyone. We will return.The water park is very family oriented and large enough to do stuff for the whole day. Several places to dine as well. The morning g buffet has good choices.

We had to stay in Burlington for several days and had to switch hotels for the last night due to room availability. There are two separate hotels under Catfish Bend and we ended up on the older (Pzazz) side. Everything was average, the room was of average value, power outlets were few and far between, internet service was good. Appliances... More

I stayed at both sides of this property on my spring vacation and will be reviewing the Catfish side in this one. As others have said this is a 2 part property and the Catfish Bend is an adults only side that resembles a 4 star hotel. However, it did not feel like a 4 star experience. I not sure... More

This is my first visit to Burlington Iowa, I'm staying at the Catfish Bend Inn & Spa; recommended to me by the people I'm visiting.

The Catfish Bend Inn far exceeded my expectations. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was one of the largest for a hotel that I have seen. The outside of the Inn is not fancy, but the interior is well done.

Plain rooms, off season, so no outdoor park, no discount anyway. Paid to upgrade the "fun package" for $50 2 nights out of the three I'm here. That $50 turned into $146, with $120 in discounts. Would have been cheaper to not upgrade and spend the $120...

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Our packages are only a value if you had plan on doing the amenities that the package offers. I would be interested in figuring out how $50.00 turned into $146.00, which doesn't sound correct. All of our packages are designed to save every family money and to experience multiple venues...
