Horrible customer service skills at the front desk. I've stayed here for two months here for business in Dubuque and after my second month my comforter was changed through room service. I walk into the lobby from work one day, lay down to relax for about an hour and immediately start to get eaten buy bed bugs from this old... More

Another reviewer put it perfectly - if you like clean and economical and are OK with fun and cheesy, this is your place! Awesome location for most places in Dubuque. If you are into fancy or worried because things are older (but still clean) Don't stay here, you will not like it. We had 5 adults and got what we... More

This is my "go to" hotel when I come to Dubuque to visit family. Not a fancy place, but the staff is friendly, it's a great value, and they have a nice karaoke bar. The atmosphere is best described as "eclectic", like before the big chains took over. Wi fi is available in the lobby. As a bonus, if you... More

Nice, clean room. We were very pleased with our stay. We enjoyed the Rainbow Lounge. Went nw to Balltown and ate at Breitbach's. Beautiful scenery! We visited, shopped, and plan on bringing our other family members to experience the activities of the area.

Stayed one night while on a birthday getaway weekend. The staff was super nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and we'll furnished. We went to the karaoke lounge attached to the hotel and had a great time! I would definitely recommend and hope to return again someday.

I was skeptical at first to stay at this hotel. It was like walking through a time machine. The lobby is clean and nice. The room was clean and cozy. Staff was very nice. Only downside is the bathroom. Definitely wins the award for the worlds smallest bathroom. I am glad we stayed there though.

Looking for a hotel at an extremely reasonable rate? This is it. If you like Eclectic decor, and don't mind some mixed furniture in your room, stay here. The rooms were clean. The price was very right! And it's well located to Dubuque downtown attractions! Nothing fancy. But it will suit your needs, and save you money over the chain... More

OK, the place is a little weird, but in a good way. The décor (if you can call it that) is eclectic. Think Grandmas house. A buddy and I took an overnight motorcycle trip from Milwaukee to Dubuque and rooms were either sold out or more than we wanted to pay (think Green Bay when the Packers play) We got... More

To the person that was worried about smoke smell. Well, your perfume was too strong for me and made me gag! It is all about being different and seeing others' taste in decorating. I loved it at the Canfield Inn!!! You can stay in the right lane and stay at the cookie-cutter motels/hotels all you want, but I am stepping... More

My husband and I used to own a boat on the Mississippi in Dubuque, so we were familiar with the Canfield, but had never stayed there. We sold our boat about a year ago and were headed up to Madison, WI and wanted to stay in Dubuque in the downtown area on the way up. It was a Saturday night,... More
