Holiday Inn Dubuque/Galena

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The wallpaper, sink and headboard were damaged. The lobby has been updated, but the rooms need work.

Our Studio was somewhat small, but easy to get used to. There were no towel racks, so we used the bedroom closet barred storage shelf to hang them. We had a pleasant 4 night stay. We didn't use any of their amenities, so we can't comment on that. A very nice view out the window of Main Street.

Rooms, staff,and parking are wonderful. Pool is a bit on the small side but still nice.

Hotel hallways were shoddy looking. The breakfast buffet was pretty terrible and we paid for it when booking the room.

The food at their Restaurant was excellent. They had a wide variety of dinner choices and the breakfast was fantastic as well. It's located right next to a waterpark and the national Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium so we were able to take advantage of both locations. I would highly recommend using this Holiday Inn for a stay in Galena and Dubuque.

Very nice hotel - remodeled, clean, and within walking distance to many attractions. Stayed here one night with two large dogs and the hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. Although there is not a lot of grass near the hotel to walk the dogs, there is a grassy area in front of the hotel with a doggy 'clean up' station. At check-in I was offered an option that would allow easy access to the outside, for my pups. One of the most dog friendly hotels I've seen! I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel has been remodeled and is very nice. The restaurant has a nice variety of choices on the menu.

Very comfy stay with a great bed and an easy to get to location and parking in the back.

Met all of our expectations. Don't know what else to say. When its good its good.

The hotel was perfect for my wife and I after spending the day in and around Dubuque

Good location, very close to casino and water park. A few miles away from Galena.

I love this hotel and stay in Dubuque quite often. This is typically always my first choice for where to stay. However, for a Holiday Inn its quite pricey in my opinion.

I have no complaints but nothing to brag about either.

I stay at this hotel regularly due to required company training. It's nothing to brag about but nothing to complain about either.

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.

Pleasant stay. Only off thing was that the breakfast was not complimentary.

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

Very nice and clean. I wish I could of stayed long. it was my 2 time in 2 years at this hotel. Very pleased

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.

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.
