It was ok and by that I mean average. It could be better kept as it looks kind of run down. The rooms are average; nothing special.

Hotel is hugely overpriced for value. 126.00 per night and doesn't even include the pool or a simple breakfast. Have to pay extra for the water park. Not impressed at all. Front desk staff was fantastic, but won't be staying here again.

I stayed here for just one night. The location is convenient to what I was in Dubuque for. I did not participate in any waterpark activities so I cannot comment on that.

Great place for kids. They really enjoy the water park and arcade. We really like that there's a Tony Roma' s restaurant in the hotel that provides room service. The rooms are nice and clean, beds are comfortable, staff is friendly. It's across the street...More

I am not sure because I did not use the waterpark at all when I stayed there. I do know they have "package" deals where you get a room and waterpark access all in one.

I agree...not cold,but not really warm either. A rash guard will help to keep you warm. I got a bit chilly after about 1 hour.
