The Frontier Motel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Marquette
Reviewed July 28, 2011

This is an older motel, 2 story with parking in front of the lower level motel rooms. Our room was extremely clean. Coffee maker and flat-screen tv are in the room. There's a nice, clean outside swimming pool, with chairs to lounge in the sun. The motel is on the main highway through quaint Marquette and McGregor and across the street from the mighty Mississippi River. We liked it because it's right next door to the Lady Luck Casino and we walked to it.
Owner was friendly and helpful. We'll stay there again. It's a beautiful area to hike and enjoy the outdoors.

On a recent trip to eastern Iowa I made it a point to stop at the Frontier, partly based on the good reviews that I read at Tripadvisor. It was an excellent decision because everthing about the Frontier is positive. The room was very clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All at a very reasonable rate. You are within walking distance of the quaint town of Marquette and the Lady Luck casino. The casino has a really great buffet and a fun atmosphere. The town has an old time Mississippi River feel to it. I will definitely stay at the Frontier on my next trip to the area.

We had a chance to stay at the Frontier. Very close to the casino and fabulous buffet. Room was very clean, bed comfortable. Owner was very friendly at front desk. It snowed during the night and when we looked out the window the next morning there was Todd, the owner, removing the snow around and on our car! What service!!
