Holiday Inn Dubuque
Ranked #8 of 17 Hotels in Dubuque
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This hotel was in the heart of downtown historic district near Mississippi River. Our stay was okay. The pool was very small, we didn't use it. The mattress we slept in is due to be discarded and needed to be replaced with a new one, our whole body sinked in while we slept. Suffered some backaches while we slept. The only plus was the location!

This hotel is in a great safe location in downtown Dubuque. Our room was clean, quiet and very comfortable Q beds. Walking distance to casino, Missouri River museum, convention center and the River; walk is about half mile. Enjoyed drinks in the Beefstro bar located inside hotel; ice cold beer. We ate breakfast in the restaurant. It was descent for breakfast buffet. You can also order off the menu. Hotel has a parking garage. For the money, this hotel was a good value.

I have attended several business convention locally at this restaurant and the convention hall area where they are held is very pleasant and nice lunch was always great when it was served on site and from the people who stayed in the hotel during the conventions there were no complaints they like to be close location to the casinos in downtown area and the convenience of being able to walk downstairs for their business conference

We stayed for one night while on a trip. The hotel was in a great downtown location, with a parking ramp attached to it for easy access. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel and it was delicious food! The restaurant service was great both times. We didn't end up using the pool, which was small but seemed clean. The only complaint I'd have was that the carpet in our room was almost sticky. It seemed like maybe it was shampooed but not thoroughly rinsed or something. I'd stay here again if ever in Dubuque.

Clean. Good location. Quiet rooms. It isn't fancy, but it's well kept. We were in town for a wedding and wanted to stay somewhere that wouldn't break the bank. This fit the bill just fine. I'd gladly stay there again.

Only issue I noted was that the shower heads are really low. Not a big deal, just something that we both noticed.

Friendly front desk and they are very serious about making your stay as good as it can be. Wendy specifically was always very cheerful. The location is right downtown with a number of restaurants and shops near by. Great value for your money.

We thought the hotel was average, it was clean, good location, Jason in the restaurant was great, because of him we would return to the hotel. He was so welcoming, funny, great service and made you happy to be there.
