“Great service, mediocre hotel, stay only if it's a bargain”
Reviewed 2 February 2011

We stayed here for two nights on a weekend. First, the staff is wonderful- we had several issues during our stay and while they could not fix everything they tried, and more importantly they acted like they genuinely cared. Issues- we booked a suite, understandably at a higher price than a standard room. CAUTION- these are NOT suites- they are modest "oversized" rooms at best. The bathroom is TINY, no different than a standard room, the overall room may be a tad larger than standard rooms, but not enough to warrant the extra charge.
We booked a non-smoking room; however it was right next to a regular smoking room, and it was at the end of the hall where the two rooms across from ours and the next door room were smoking rooms- thus OUR ROOM SMELLED LIKE SMOKE- so much so that when we returned home our clothes we had not worn reeked of smoke...gross. Upon requesting a different room at check in we were told all rooms were reserved.
On Saturday night the hotel was full and upon returning at 930pm the hotel parking lot was full. Several in our party had to park in the next door hotel's parking lot or in the frontage road- inexcusable. One final issue- there was no hot water the night we arrived; upon calling the desk we were told that one of the water heaters had quit but was repaired that day. The next day and night we had hot water.
The breakfast room is small but the choices for the free bkfst were decent, and the pool and hot tub felt great. The beds are very comfortable, the hvac is average at best. Again, the staff is commendable, the hotel itself and its price point were not for this visit. Management was agreeable to adjusting our final bill- further proof that the staff did try to make this a good stay for us. If booking just be wary of the term "suite" and avoid all rooms next to smoking rooms.

Stayed at the Comfort Inn two nights for work. My biggest complaint was the overwhelming smell of smoke everywhere in hotel. My co-worker and I were on a non smoking floor, but we sure couldn’t tell. Also, the days we were in town were extremely windy and the window in my first room was making a very loud noise as a result. I think the window wasn’t insulated properly. They did give me a room on the opposite side of the hotel after I asked. I slept alright once in the new much quieter room. The beds were comfortable enough. The free W-Fi worked well and breakfast was decent. Still not sure $70 some odd dollars a night for that place was worth it.

Stayed here and went to the Casino's in Dubuque. We did not realize until we checked into the hotel that they had shuttle service to both Casino's. The sign said to check with the front desk which we did not so I don't know if they charged for transportation or not. We drove. It was not very far to either one but our Navagation system in our car helped a lot getting through downtown Dubuque. Breakfast was good. They had waffles, muffins, cereal, bisquits and gravy, milk, juice and fruit. All in all, nice stay for what we needed. I would stay again.

I stayed here again after a couple years. Still reliable. Nothing fancy, but free wireless and breakfast sweeten the already low rate.
