“Great Property, Reasonably priced”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We stay in Dubuque several times a year. This will be our new "regular" property. Our normal hotels were either booked or the rates were very high for a one night stay. We had a double queen room and paid $79 on a Friday night in the height of summer.

The room was a nice size with a microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator and most importantly, was very clean. There was some wear in the room (wallpaper border coming off in some areas and the furniture looked older), but nothing major or anything that would keep us from being comfortable. I had read from other reviews that there was not an elevator, so I called ahead and they put us on the main floor as two people travelling with us have trouble climbing stairs.

Outside, there's a gas grill and charcoal grill along with picnic tables. We have discussed how next time we'll save money by bringing dinner with us. The breakfast was very nice. Waffles, biscuits and gravy, donuts, cereal, etc. They had the breakfast available until 10, which is very nice.

Most importantly, the owners of this hotel work the front desk and breakfast area. They are extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. They make this property memorable. There were four in our room and he called to make sure we were comfortable and see if we wanted the family room that was still open. We were fine, but later when I mentioned we might be interested for future trips, he showed me the family room with three queen beds. We will definitely take book that room in the future.

We will stay here again and recommend it to other travelers who are looking for a good value.

This hotel has many of the amenities at a price that will make you smile. Easy drive to the city center. The only thing missing is an elevator to the second floor of this two story hotel. But the earnestness and desire of the owner to please more than makes up for this deficiency. Besides it is good to walk up to the second floor, even with your luggage. Clean hotel and decent breakfast. The best part is the price.

Room Tip: Be on the main floor if you have any disabilities.

I was absolutely thrilled with not only the price, but my room was exquisite! (: Very lovely place to stay, friendly people, great breakfast, and was really pleased with the room! The air worked great, the bed was unbelievably comfy, and the Jacuzzi in the room was splendid!! I will ALWAYS go to Econo Lodge and will always recommend such a lovely place!

My husband and I have been going to this hotel for years. We keep coming back every time to visit Dubuque, which is around every three months or more. Raj Patel and his wife are very welcoming. They are always working on the hotel to keep it up to high standard they have set for their guests. They replaced the roof and the hallway carpets last year. This year they are painting each room. They wanted a job well done so they hired a paint crew that was very good not just speedy. You see, quality means a lot to Raj and his family. I recommend this hotel to anyone that would enjoy a quite friendly stay.

Room was spacious, clean and everything in it was reasonably new and fully functional. Standard Econo Lodge breakfast, meaning nothing spectacular but very acceptable. Staff was friendly and helpful. I will stay here in future visits to the Dubuque area.

Room Tip: The north side overlooks the parking lot and is quieter.

We stayed at the Dubuque EconoLodge on a Saturday night. Motel was clean,worth the money. Our room had a King bed, fridge, and free Wi-Fi. Did not use the fridge, but the Wi-Fi worked well. Or room was clean, bathroom was clean,shower worked well. I would like to see a security chain on the room door. Parking lot was close to room. One staff member was helpful, the other was so-so. Motel is located near a gas station and 3 fast food choices. Also a Japanese Steakhouse near. We used the free Diamond Jo Casino Shuttle to go from the motel to the casino and downtown Dubuque. The shuttle is free, but we always tip the driver. Downtown is @ 3 miles away. Motel offers free hot breakfast, we did not use it.

For the rate of $79 I would recommend this choice.

Room Tip: get a first floor room at the west end of the motel. Less noise from the highway nearby. We had room...

This little gem was a pleasant surprise on the outskirts of town. Very clean, friendly staff, reasonably priced. Was well worth finding it after getting lost several times just to locate it. Really enjoyed the breakfast too. Would highly recommend this property!
