Very clean, comfortable stay

We were on an overnight trip and checked the "Nearby and Available". We ended up at this hotel. Desk staff was very friendly when we arrived. The room was very clean and comfortable. Although all we did was crash in the room, I could see the fitness room was well equipped including free weight dumbbells. I peeked in and the pool looked nice. The AC unit in the room was a bit loud but everything else was just great.

Needs updating

While staff and location were good, the hotel needs an update. Did I mention the elevators beat up and smell of oil?

Galena trip

We had to stay in Dubuque because all the Galena hotels were booked up. However, the Holiday Inn was nice and we had a good stay. The room was clean and the facility has a nice lounge and is close to the casino.

Family reunion

Overall it was very good. The room was great and front desk staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The breakfast was not very good and our waitress was very slow. Also, there was a wedding on Saturday night so no parking was available in the ramp. We had to use another ramp and were charged for it. The staff did give us the money back, but said it was the wrong ramp. It was all very confusing. Perhaps in the future your hotel guest could use the ramp that they are paying for and wedding guest could use the other ramps.

Easy to get to - clean rooms, friendly staff.

If I am ever in the area I will definitely choose Holiday Inn for my stay.

Great location

The staff was very helpful, warm and welcoming. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. The shower was small and I'm under 5" so that's saying a lot. But out visit was great other than that. Would recommend this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Definitely visit the national Mississippi river museum and aquarium. Well worth the trip. Also visit the stone cliff winery for a wine tasting. It's a 3 minute drive and the place is great. There's a fabulous brewery upstairs, great place for dinner. Loved the view.

Could of been great

It could of been great. I mean that the hotel was clean, even though the pool was small it was all my daughter and I needed. The restraunt had great food. But the problem was the staff could have made the experience great. All they needed was a smile, being attentive when I was in front of them. You see I don't travel much, I'm a single mom who took her daughter out for a weekend of fun. So I would say I'm not used to going to hotels.I walked in unsure of what to do where to go. They spent more time talking with the help then me. When they finally asked what I needed they said "oh you prepaid like that was a bad thing. " I asked them about a place for my daughter and I could eat " he was shocked I asked then told me about the restraunt in the hotel. To shorten this up. If they would have acted like they liked there job it would have made our stay so much better. I won't even talk about the tv that drove me crazy.. which probably not bother as much if I would have been greeted with a smile. In my line of work I would have been yelled at if I would gave acted like that.

Not bad

Pool was closed which was a major disappointment. And only half our party received discounts that applied to the whole group. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
