This hotel was clean and comfortable, but a little worn. We had a standard suite with a queen bed, fold out couch, and kitchenette. Comfortable sized for a couple, but not large. All in all, this was a pleasant place for short stay while in Dubuque!

I stayed here twice on my Iowa vacation and thought it was a great value compared to others in the area. On the first time the only flaw I noticed was that the cabinet drawer was broken but maintenance fixed it the next day. The rooms were clean and comfortable with the beds being a little on the firm side...

Basic suite with kitchenette, couch and table. The furniture and carpet is a little dated but certainly serviceable. Some people have complained about smoke smell in the room, which is a little hard to understand since Iowa has been a no smoking in public areas state for 7 or 8 years. Breakfast was a little spartan, but adequate. All in...

Ervin- Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review. We are hoping this year that we have some updates being don to help with the fact that some of our items are outdated. I hope that your room was not smoke smelling. We do offer smoking rooms. As the law changed regarding public areas several years ago...

One one hand the suites are spacious, with a stocked kitchenette, lots of amenities and with a really helpful staff. On the other hand the refrigerators in our two rooms were both severely dented, the side chairs had ugly stains on the upholstery, and a couple of "pet stains" on the bedroom carpet. We booked non smoking rooms but were...

My husband and I stopped here for one night on our way to another location. It's a good spot, nice and clean. I would recommend staying here and I think it would also be great for longer stays since you have a small kitchen in your room.

We stayed here two nights to attend a concert at the Great Jones County fair. The room was small but very clean. We love having the apartment setting and this did not disappoint. Staff was really friendly and the breakfast was ok at best but this is not a 5 star hotel and it was included. So no complaints really....

Room very tiny and outdated. Looked like a 70s throwback. The furniture was dinged up, carpet stained, mattress thin. We unfortunately ended up in a smoking room (hotel booked full so we were told), so we also had to deal with stale smoke. The front desk offered to spray room freshener for us. Not a pleasant stay 😕

As far as sleep quality, take some ear plugs. Climate control a/c is very noisy. Everytime it cycled, it was preceeded by a loud thud. Then I was awoken twice by the couple in the...
