Very nice hotel and great location, but blinking lights on a smoke detector above the bed bothered my sleep badly. I sleep lightly and awake often to drift back to sleep again, but the lights made this miserable.

Dear Cathy C,

Thank you for taking the time to share of your experience. Our apology for your less than restful night of sleep' life safety systems are designed with light indicators that provide information to the guest and hotel staff of either the system is operating normal with no alarms, or potential conditions that require hotel staff services.

For future travel, many hotels allow guests to view the guest rooms prior to check-in for a guest to note if the room layout and design are to their most enjoyment. Please feel free to ask this of the staff at Hotel Julien Dubuque for your next time visiting our area.

Thank you for staying with us. Look forward to seeing you again.

Pros: walking distance to attractions, beautiful historic building, nice view of theriver
Cons: Told at check in we'd be charged for mini bar if we took anything. House keeping disturbed us five times

Go for the charm, it is loud when an event is on, hot tub was not working thru the stay, hotel food was no better than a Denny's but many great places to go around the hotel for great food. Close to Galena sights and shops. Will go back to the area but not sure if we will stay there or not.

Excellent rooms and Carolines is an excellent restuarant. Dubuque is doing a great job with getting the word out and enticing people to come and see what the city is about. Hotel Julion is doing their part to make the trip an enjoyable experience

Couldn't ask for a nicer room, we always stay in a corner king premiere suite. Full kitchen & room for 5 is perfect for our girls trips. The staff is always polite & eager to help. Room was clean & maintained well.

Caroline's restaurant is on site & has a wonderful variety of dishes. Don't forget to walk the town & visit the shops

Room Tip: Premiere Suite with full kitchen

We stayed in Dubuque for my son's basketball tourney. This hotel is spectacular, although the front desk lady thought it was more important to finish her conversation before checking us in. When we did get checked in she gave us free popcorn. The room was fantastic. Very large and roomy. We had the double queen suite. The pool area was nice, warm water. The jacuzzi jets were not working and the water was luke warm but all in all a great place to stay!
