Reviewed May 8, 2006

Our 4-night stay at Mainstay Suites in Dubuque was wonderful! Our rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed waking up in the nice breakfast area and grilling in the patio area.
Minor negatives: 1) the exercise room could use improvement, just well-worn; and 2) the room thermostats were difficult to manage.
Overall, we had an excellent vacation, and this hotel played a big part in our satisfaction.

Had a reservation for 10/7/05 --- double queen beds- supposed to be a very nice suite. ground floor
Received Discover card statement before our trip and the charges were already on the statement!!!! Not Good!!
Arrived - they had mistakenly booked the room for 9/7/05 and said they were full. These reservations were in my mother's name - a special treat for her and me. Rick was on duty - he finally put us in a room on the 2nd floor - not good - one double bed - not good
there was a piece of the wall lamp in the bed - not good (it was very sharp!)
the bathroom light/vent was so loud you literally could not use either!!
I won't even go into how dirty the room was - absolutely disgusting.
Tried to work with the manager, Penny, who was apparently unreachable when we were having all the trouble the night before. When we asked for a refund of some kind to be placed on my mother's cc we were told NO. I asked her to then comp a room for my parents at some other site within a year and again were told NO. My parents were charged a month ahead for a room that stunk. We are not done yet trying to work this out. We will not stay at this hotel again - ever!! We will be contacting the IOWA Better Business Bureau also and the Consumer Protections Department within the state of IOWA. I am pretty sure it is not legal to over charge willfully.

The rooms are like mini apartments. There is a fridge, micro, stove, dishes, silverware, sofa, full vanity. Clean, new, next to restaurants.
Average continental breakfast. Beware, there is no pool.
