Poor Experience

The staff was rude and it was extremely hot in our room. We learned that the A/C system is a known issue that was not fixed.

Old hotel, very well maintained.

Pros: Clean and comfortable. Nice King bed!
Cons: The view... Not much can be done. My room had a wonderful view of the aging dome roof of the pool.
Location: Tons of restaurants shopping very close by.
Just visiting for the day, and will be back... maybe even with the kids.

Nice hotel, but awkward location.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
The hotel itself was great. However, the in house restaurant was loud and unapppealing to those of my age group. We could not easily find another place close by to have dinner due to the really busy street. BUT! The brakfast buffett was terrific. I guess if you like a noisy, hopping restaurant or are comfortable driving in a strange city this may have been the place for you.

Great price and excellent location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, free shuttle to casino
Very convenient location as we go to Dubuque to spend a couple of days at the casino. Rooms are more than adequate. Our room smelled a little musty upon checkin but the staff took care of it right away.

Nice hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was a great place to stay. I stayed in a hot tub suite. Good, clean, quite room. Hotel staff was fantastic. The room was a little more than I would normally spend but it had a hot tub so I guess that makes sense. Bed was relaxing. Pool area was nice and clean. It a popular hotel so there were many guests pool side. It was loud but that is to be expected. Lots of towels for everyone. If you do not like staying in a loud room, ask for a room that is not near the pool. Breakfast buffet was SCRUMPTIOUS and large. This would have been a great place to have a party.
