Days Inn Dubuque
Ranked #16 of 17 Hotels in Dubuque
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The staff members at this hotel were friendly and helpful and the room rate was fair. However, this hotel did not live up to the Days Inn standards and quality I have grown to expect. The place feels old and slightly dirty. The breakfast was slim and the breakfast attendant was harried. To top it off, while we were trying to eat breakfast a carpenter came in and starting installing trim right underneath the area where the food was placed. The nail gun was loud and disturbing--not a peaceful way to eat a meal. In addition, I can't help but think that this episode might have been a safety concern as there were many folks in the room. Not to mention the fact that there did not seem to be steps taken to cover the food or utensils prior to the work taking place.

If you are staying for a single night this place might serve your needs. However, I would not suggest you stay there for an entire vacation trip.

I am sorry to hear your stay was not what you expected. I am glad our staff did their job and were friendly to you and other guests. Yes, we are an older hotel, but we are continually making changes and updates to the rooms and lobby areas (this would explain the carpenter). I am sorry his presence disturbed your breakfast and I hope the free meal met your expectations. We do hope to have you back again during your travels through the Dubuque area. Thank you for your business.

The rooms are comfortable and service is friendly and helpful. The breakfast area and selections are very nice. We enjoyed the large pool, in which one can actually swim because it is larger than many motel pools, although it's not heated. The natural limestone wall next to the motel keeps noise out and is very interesting. The location is very convenient and we enjoyed our free newspaper.

Room Tip: The rooms near the back are nice and quiet.

My husband and I wanted to stay in a hotel for our anniversary. The service was great but our room was very dirty. The carpet was in need of a cleaning, the furniture was stained, the door and windows were dirty. I think this would be a great hotel if it was clean.

Happy Anniversary! Thank you for choosing the Days Inn Dubuque. I am sorry your room experience was not what you expected. I do hope you reported any issues to our front desk staff as we would have gladly moved you to another room upon availability. We do have newly renovated rooms w new carpet, etc. The next time you book, feel free to ask if one of these newly renovated rooms are available! Thank you.
