Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mavsmom The only place we stay in Dubuque
We stay in this Holiday Inn 4 times a year when my husband travels on business. The restaurant/bar staff is outstanding. The room are always clean. I like the exercise room and the whirlpool rooms. There are plenty of pillows to choose from and the mattress on the beds are comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BHP26 Cold Room Upon Arrival
Upon arrival, the room was extremely cold--the air conditioning was set way too high. The room remained damp throughout our stay. Other than this "problem," the room was spacious, well maintained, and had nice accommodations.
The food at the restaurant could be served hotter and there could have been more people available to serve their customers. The waitress was very friendly and did the best she could under the circumstances.
It would be a very nice convention hotel; very spacious lobby and very nicely maintained.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JPC1 Comfortable Bed - Broken toliet
While i will recommend this hotel, i have to say that my stay had an interesting twist.
We had a suite to begin on Friday night and at 4am the toilet started pouring water all over the floor. Found out later from the staff that the toilet had been previously broken and repaired to go back in the room (in my mind an accident waiting to happen) . They did comp my room for the night, but having to wake up and move an entire room the night before the wedding we were attending was not a pleasant experience.
Outside of that the stay was very nice and the staff (except for the lady at the front desk that blamed us for the toilet) was courteous and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LisaMM Friendly staff, convenient location
I attended several events associated with a wedding in the area. This property was well-located for all. I did not have the opportunity to use most of the hotel's facilities, but I would have, if I'd had more time to spend there; everything was clean and inviting. The lobby area had a more elegant feel than I expected, quite in keeping with its location in the old part of downtown Dubuque (I doubt downtown Dubuque even has a 'new' part!).

Took Harley trip to Dubuque to attend the Jazz in the Park on Friday night.
It was great to park the Harleys in the covered ramp parking and being able to walk to the Clock Tower to enjoy great music and great food!
The staff at the Holiday Inn were very fine and personable!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Penny Woman room comfortable & clean. king bed in suite was so comfortable
We were extremely satisfied with this hotel. Staff from front desk to housekeeping were very nice making us feel welcome. We really appreciated the friendly & efficient shuttle service. The restaurant was good too & nice that kids ate for free. They had a cute little patio area with tables for smoking out front which was also nice. I would recommend this hotel to friends as well as revisit again.

A great value for the tri-state area. Clean and fast service. I stay every time I visit the area. Attractions in walking distance and on-site parking.

The room was very comfortable. Hotel is in a great location. Only issues were an odor coming up in the plumbing and the check-in/check-out staff. Still waiting for that email of my receipt!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wireworker easy to see town from here
the hotel was easy to find and it was very easy to reach the parts of the city that we came to see.,
the trolly stop was near, and allowed us to get a quick overview of the city.
the hotel is a great place to relax and enjoy a few days off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mom14 wedding party
Several members of our wedding party and their guests stayed at the Holiday Inn Dubuque. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating. They gave us early check in and made sure our friends received all the guest bags that we left for them. We had 14 rooms at the hotel. The rooms had very comfortable beds and pillows. The location was wonderful as the hotel is right downtown Dubuque and was close to our rehearsal dinner site and our reception site, plus all sorts of other interesting things to see and do. Thank you for your help in making our wedding a success.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HotRodPowerCorvette09 Food and service at the Bar EXCELLENT !
The people in the bar/restaurant made the experience good.
Front Desk check in was below average, didn't tell us how/where to park or get to elevators. When we went back to ask, it was an imposition for them. Parking garage was steep access, sports car scrapes in/out. If you want to be downtown, would be reason for staying here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by diabhockeymom Great customer service!
One complaint I have is that the refrigerator froze our food and drinks. The temperature nob is not easily located, even after looking. We had to throw away a lot of food.
Otherwise, we had a wonderful experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ATL1827 Good hotel close to dining
Holiday Inn Dubuque/Galena is a comfortable place to stay in the area. It is located downtown surrounded by lovely brick architecture. Lots of places to dine within walking distance so we never actually ate at the hotel.

The Holiday Inn in Dubuque is a great hotel. We've stayed there twice now and I would definitely stay again the next time we're in the area. Lots to do in the general area.

I stayed in Dubuque on business/pleasure trip. Found the hotel centrally located to all points of interest, with just a brisk walk. My car was in a very secure parking garage by hotel. I felt safe, staff was very pleasant and very helpful. Will stay there again.

Enjoyed our stay in Galena at the Dubuque Holiday Inn. We went into Galena during the day and then enjoyed the casino at night. We included the breakfast in our room price and it was delicious. Excellent hotel and location.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lorasfamily Starting to disappoint
I have stayed in this location many times over the past four years as my daughter went to college in Dubuque. Overall, I am starting to see signs of decline. The staff is always very nice, friendly and helpful. (for example, upon checking in, the front desk staff member said I only had one room, I told her I had two and booked them months ago, she verified and stated, "you booked in September" which made me realize she knows her job, customer service was a priority for her. That part they have right.
The rooms are starting to be less clean each time, and in fact, this visit, it was disappointing that my room was never cleaned on Saturday at all. I was told that when housekeeping went to do it, the room was occupied. I left at 8:30 AM for a graduation and did not return until after 11:00 PM, other than stopping in to change. Not sure how one of my rooms was serviced, but the other was not. Our bathroom sink would not drain, the tub was dirty on the entire outside and the floors are not the cleanest either by the look of our socks.
The front desk staff took care of it, but the room was never cleaned or beds made, just new towels were put in the bathroom.
For the price (we booked under the college visit rate) it was fine, but certainly not worth going back for if I am in the area again. Next time, I will choose a different hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Curty60 Very bad experience
We usually have good luck staying here but this last stay was not good. Our room did not have a working thermostat so at 2am we called the front desk. They were able to get us in another room which they told us was an "upgrade" since it had a whirlpool tub but in the morning we tried to take a shower. Since the room had a large tub the shower size was so small it was not even usable. When I explained this to the front desk staff the next morning they said "oh, you must have had a whirlpool tub room". Seems like they understood but didn't really care. We have always stayed at this hotel but now we'll look into our options.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Midwest Traveler Rude Staff- Bad place to stay
I recently chose this hotel as a what I thought was a better alternative to other higher priced facilities in Dubuque, Iowa. I was wrong.
When an issue surfaced with my reservations I was greeted with staff that was less than professional. In fact, they didn't attempt to do ANYTHING to assist with the problem. The booking error was on the part of the facility and they would not even allow me to talk with a manager. I was told, "Oh Well! Too bad!"
I found the facility to be less that expected. I stay in IHG facilities all over the United States because they are usually good quality, and excellently staff. This facility was the exception and I am so angry that my "MEMBERSHIP" meant nothing at all when an issue surfaced!
SAVE YOURSELVES THE HASSLE--DON'T PICK THIS PLACE! Spend the money and stay somewhere else!

We were very satisfied with our room until we returned from dinner and heard a dog in the room next to us
My wife called the front desk and complained they said they would move the people in the room estnext to us because they did not register a dog when checking in
To our disappointment no one contacted the room next to us and we heard the dog barking off and on during the night
The hotel did apologize and give us 20,000 points but I travel for a living and was very disappointed that the property dropped the ball on our request
