“Timmermans Motel needs a facelift”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

While the Restaurant is fantastic the hotel is dated. It needs quite a bit a modernizing and fresh amenities. It was clean but definitely a low end motel. I have stayed there before (within the past 5-6 years) and feel there may have been a change of hands. Again, clean but not on the par of many Super 8s and other lower end hotels.

I love this hotel. There ARE smoking rooms, and it is easy on the wallet. We have been staying here for 40 years, and wouldn't go to any of the "fancy" hotels in Dubuque. Always clean. The pool is wonderful after a hot day on the local golf courses. Balconies have great views. Since their remodel a couple of years ago the hotel is even nicer than before.The staff is always helpful and will do anything to make your stay better, even make reservations at Timmerman's Super Club, or Bittersweet on the Bluff for you. Both great restaurants and only minutes away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back...so you can sit on the balcony without the sun glaring on you...for a mo...

Our room was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but typical for this class of hotel. We had a ground level room with patio door which was very convenient for taking the dog out (pets are allowed). Supper club next door looked beautiful, and had quite a view, unfortunately we had already eaten so we didn't eat there. Orher than that however, there is not much else nearby. If you want to stay in the heart of town you would be better off staying right in Dubuque or Galena, as this is in the country between. FYI- Illinois has high taxes- approx. 10% the cost of our room.

We were a little hesitant to go to this hotel because of some of the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Don't let the outside appearance scare you (it did my husband). We entered the reception area and were promptly greeted by a nice host. He did not give us much information about the amenities, but he was pleasant. My husband remarked several times how clean it was...(something he never does). It looked as if it has been recently renovated and professionally cleaned. The bed was okay. The pool was awesome - perfect temp - sauna was great as well as the whirlpool. There is a little rust here and there - but everything was clean. Don't plan to exercise or eat breakfast here...the treadmill has a small track. They did have an elliptical and bike. They also have a waffle machine, coffee, orange juice, and rolls - we decided to eat out (Village Inn was great but some distance away). We did not see any other person in the hotel...this seemed strange to have it all to ourselves. Overall, we would stay here again...maybe bring the kids next time.

Met our expectations of a value priced resort for our group. We had 8 rooms and no complaints. The pool was large, clean and not busy. The service and attentiveness was good. I will come back, thanks to the manager and his staff.

Could have been better. The hotel is on a hill, which gives great view .Bed was OK. Room was somewhat poorly lit and carpet was not vacuumed (dirt all around the edges of the room). The dinner was good and it was live music on the weekend, do not remember if every day of the weekend or Sundays only. This is not your luxury hotel, there may be noisy at times

No one at the front desk to check in. Bed was reasonably comfortable but our non-smoking room had blankets with cigarette holes. Discolored towels and wash clothes should have been sent to Good Will months ago. No heat in the bathroom. Room was poorly lit and carpet was not vacuumed (dirt all around the edges of the room). Will never stay at this property again or recommend to anyone else.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!
