“Very Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stayed for one night after attending a get together for our family, and found the place to be very delightful! It was a very roomy motel room and was very clean. The bathroom had quite a bit of room in it too. The whole room was very clean smelling and the beds were very comfortable. The morning breakfast was very sufficient and had quite a variety of foods out for use to have.

Room Tip: There were quite a few outlets in the room which was a pleasant surprise. It was very tastefully de...

Basic, ok for overnight stay.

Hotel is very basic, dated country décor. Everything worked fine. Hotel was clean.

The major concern I had was that I could hear the water flushing down the pipes from rooms above. This was very annoying.

Room was comfortable, bed was ok, slept well.

Staff was pleasant.

Wifi was good.

I do like that hotel has microwave and fridge.

I used treadmill in simple workout room, it was ok, a bit squeaky, but ok.

Some items look new, I guess hotel is upgrading some items.

There are some restaurants and shops 5-10 minutes away

The free breakfast was decent, just very busy, crowded and limited space.

Overall basic, clean hotel, pleasant staff and good value for the rate I paid.

Room Tip: Book high floor room to avoid hearing plumbing, toilet flush. Ask for a room away from parking lot...

We often stay at Country Inn and Suites motels so naturally we booked a room here when we visited Dubuque, Iowa. There's nothing "wrong" with this motel but there's nothing really "right" about it either.

Our visit got off to a mediocre start at the front desk. The woman who worked there didn't smile, rarely looked up from her paperwork, didn't greet us or make us feel welcome. She wasn't unpleasant or inefficient; she just set an impersonal and indifferent tone. She spoke if spoken to and gave information if asked but clearly but not going to put out any effort unless compelled to.

Our room was OK, clean, and everything worked, but it was dated. Gold accented carpet, gold chair, gold bedspread, and gold drapes; a desk chair that was about 12" too low to make working at the desk possible; thin pillows and a marginal bed; and, a cracked and stained sink. I wondered if the furniture in the room had been bought from another motel that was remodeling and had used stuff for sale.

I also wondered if the motel had been another brand in a prior life. It just didn't have the quality that we've come to expect from Country Inn and Suites.

I've never stayed at a Country Inn and Suites before so I didn't know what to expect. The lobby was beautiful and peaceful, seemed like a great place to curl up with a book, thanks to the little lending library bookshelf. I never got around to using it because when we would return to the hotel, we would be too exhausted! (We were vendors at the Dubuque Renaissance faire- and by "we", I mean myself, boyfriend and future mother-in-law). I simply LOVED the 24/7 coffee, cookies and hot chocolate as well as the complimentary breakfast. The staff were very nice and helpful~ and you had so many choices for breakfast.
Our mini suite was very nice and I enjoyed having the A/C on in the room the whole time. It was nice they left that on for us when we got in.
I couldn't find anything wrong with this hotel and I'd stay here again if we were to return to the area.

Traveled here to visit the casino downtown. The hotel is a little far but better than staying in smoke smell filled casino hotel. Nice breakfast but very busy. They do need more space on weekends. Rooms are sufficient but really costly for this class hotel in northern Iowa. Would recommend and plants visit again. Take advantage of any discounts and specials if you can.

Have stayed here several times. They are very consistent in providing a good experience. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Soon the rooms will start to need some updating, but they are always clean. Nice new televisions and easy location to get to, as well as several restaurants and shopping nearby. Price is always very reasonable for the quality you get in return.

The room was clean and comfortable but with few luxuries which was not a problem. We were just passing through and it met our needs very well. The breakfast was average with a nice choice of eggs (for breakfast burrito if desired), fruit, juices, good coffee, sweet rolls, muffins, etc.
The only issue was the temperature of the entire facility which must have been in the high 70s. The only way we could get comfortable in our room was to turn on the air which in February in Iowa seemed strange. Nevertheless, I'd stay here again. The Country Inn and Suites chain has always worked well for us on road trips.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms tend to be on the higher floors away from elevators. This proved to be true here, alt...
