Prompt and friendly greeting by the desk clerk "Craig" felt welcome and very helpful. Room had a mini fridge and nice coffee maker, good breakfast. Best part was the set of expectations for their guests....no running around after 10 pm which becomes a quieter time for everyones enjoyment. No loud parties. Good nights rest.

This isn't a bad thing but you know what to expect from a HIE hotel. Clean and safe location, nice breakfast, courteous staff, comfortable bed at a reasonable rate. This hotel is away from the downtown which was fine for us. We will be staying here the next time we are in town.

This is a nice NEW hotel that is well run and clean. They do the extras well. I was given a sheet with close good restaurants and any deals that they could find. As well there were cookies in the breakfast room in the evening.

Hotel was clean, friendly staff, good free breakfast (one of the only ones in the Dubuque hotel scene). Pool was closed one night - but that sometimes can't be avoided. Good location to the more commercialized area of Dubuque - not within walking distance of historical downtown or riverfront. But - just a quick drive.

This Holiday Inn is fairly typical. Breakfast was good. Room was ok but the tub did not drain quickly and a 10 minute shower ends up ankle deep in used water.
