We drove up for an overnight getaway. It was almost $200 for one night with pool passes for us and our three children. The rooms were clean and basic. The water park did seem older, somewhat grimy, equipment not in the greatest of repair (ie the staff didn't know how to inflate a raft for the water slide). In the morning, the kids played at the part for 45 minutes, then half the facility was shut down - again (gasp!) something floating in the water. That half with the big slide was closed for the next two hours until we left. I know hygienic standards must be maintained and the hotel has the right, etc. etc., but we've been to lots of waterparks and this has never happened. For the $200 it would have been another $30 for breakfast at the adjacent restaurant. I'd think for the price there would be a basic continental breakfast like at economy motels. The kids enjoyed themselves, but they would have been just as happy at our Rec Center pool. On the plus side, Dubuque is a charming, beautiful city. The hotel is adjacent to the Mississippi River walk where we saw two barges passing!
