We have stayed here before and are never disappointed. Always clean, always friendly, helpful staff and great location next to Mystique casino. We paid "full price" which was very reasonable for the accomodations provided. It is always quiet (no kids running the halls and yelling) and easy to find parking. No negatives to report.

Can't say there was anything particularly outstanding about this place, but I always prefer consistency over surprises. The casino (too smoky for us to stay) is attached on one side (along with the dog racing park). There's a Houlihan's on the other end. The whole complex sits on an island in the river (on the Iowa side). It's a very short drive into the central Dubuque district and you can find some interesting bars (Busted Lift and Hub) along with a few restaurants. Best deal we found: Paul's Tavern ($1.50 Old Style beers and $2.50 burgers!).

This HGI is just over the bridge from Wisconsin, on the approach to downtown Dubuque. Getting into the downtown area from here is easy. Parking is plentiful and free. It is adjacent to one of the few greyhound racing parks still operating, so it might be busy and noisy when races are going on. We came to visit the national mississippi river museum and aquarium, about 2.5 miles from the hotel.

Accommodations are standard for this Hilton brand and the hotel was very clean. Wifi is free and worked well. We experienced no problems during our stay. There is an independent full service restaurant attached. There is a nice ped/bike trail on the north and west side of the hotel that goes over to Riverview Park; it makes for a nice evening walk by the river if the weather is nice.

Thank-you for the compliments on our property! We are located right next to Mystique Casino, and are connected with a walkway. The outdoor walking trails are awesome for an early morning walk or bike ride! Thanks again and look forward to seeing you soon!

My husband & I (and occasionally another couple traveling with us) have stayed at the HGI possibly a dozen times over the past several years. It just occurred to me that I have never written a review. Originally we stayed here because of the convenient location next to the Mystique Casino/Dog Track. Then we started bringing our watercraft so that we could spend time (to get out of the casino) on the Mississippi River and there is a boat landing conveniently located about 3 minutes away. The HGI is exceptional. The rooms have been updated and are very clean, the employees are VERY pleasant and helpful (if help is needed), and the pool area is nice/clean as well as the outside grounds. The beds are really comfortable. We stay here every time we are in Dubuque. A perfect ending to this review would be if HGI could just help us WIN at the casino! :-)

Prior to our visit, I researched this hotel on Tripadvisor, and it was very helpful. So, here is my input...

We visited this hotel in June with my family (wife and two young kids) for a three night stay (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). I had been a little concerned that because the hotel is attached to a casino and greyhound track, that the clientele might be a little dicey for a family-friendly visit. This was not at all the case, and we actually really enjoyed watching the races from our third floor room, and did poke our head into the casino to check it out. The hotel is SPOTLESS, including the terrific pool, which was barely utilized. In fact, several times we were the only ones there. We ate at the adjacent restaraunt, which was fine. Adequate, a little overpriced, decent service, but a place where mom and dad can have a glass of wine but it is still fine for kids. Very helpful staff, excellent made-to-order breakfast, and polite Iowan's at every turn. I highly reccommend this hotel.

Thank you for the kind review! Our pool is perfect for families wanting to relax versus craziness from a waterpark. Excited for you to stay with us again in the future.

Located on an island in the Mississippi and adjacent to the Mystique Casino, our group of 52 found HGI to be clean, comfortable, accommodating, and affordable. The facilities (rooms, pool, fitness center, pool, and lobby/ breakfast area) were all in great shape. Our rooms were all as requested and ready for us on arrival. We took advantage of the buffet next door at Mystique and several group members enjoyed spending time and cash in the casino.

I heard only positive feedback with the exception of the smoke in the casino. We're not used to that any more but it really has nothing to do with our stay.

There are trails along the river in back of the hotel and it is not really downtown but quite close to it. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.
