“Watch what room you get”
Reviewed June 20, 2007

Watch what you room you get assigned to. The rooms that are closet to Highway 20 are very noisy in the morning especially with truck braking. Being an elite member, I assumed that I would not get the worst room but I did, and since it was late at night, I did not ask for another room. I just turned up the A/C and covered up to drown out the noise/

Also, for housekeeping, it was like they did half of it and then forgot to do the rest. No towels, no soap, no cups, etc.

I would say the bed was very comfortable which is important to us. Staff was friendly.

During check-in there was a little confusion - the manager had to be called and then it was straightened out fairly quick. The hotel's appearance was clean & the pool area looked clean too. Our room was clean - a little on the musty side, so we opened the windows up for a few minutes and aired it out. No problems after that. No problems with check-out. We were not at the hotel much, but it served it's purpose for us.
There were 2 other things I wanted to note: 1) We asked the front desk to order us (group of 6) a taxi and after waiting 30 minutes, we checked on the status and they forgot to order the taxi. It was about 10:30 at night and the front desk wasn't busy. 2) We didn't have time for the free breakfast, but it looked good - cereal, fruit, waffles, yogart, etc. We would stay there again.

I stayed at the Fairfield Inn on business. The hotel staff were very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable of the area. The hotel also has a great breakfast. The problems that I dealt with were in the room. First of all our room had a insect problem. Second of all the bed wasn't comfortable, basically they had a foam rubber pad on a box springs for a mattress. Lastly, the furniture looked like it has been well used and the room neeed a renovation. Unfortunatly the hotel couldn't move me because they had no other rooms available. This was unacceptable for $75 a night.
If I am in Dubuque again, I will stay at either the Country Inn and Suites, or one of the B&B's downtown.
