Beautiful room. Floor around pool area was loosening up and there are little rocks and it was very hard on feet. Staff was excellent. There was an issue with the next room being so loud and they took care of it right away

Thank you for completing a review regarding your recent stay at the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center. I do apologize about the pool deck, we are planning on having it redone in late March this year so it will hopefully be done before your next visit with us. I am very pleased to hear you found our staff excellent and they were able to quickly help you resolve the noise issues. We hope you will come back and see us again soon.

90th Birthday Celebration

Pros: The have the most helpful staff, and it was a delightful place to stay.
Cons: The pool water could have been warmer.
Location: Dubuque, IA has lots of activities: River Museum, boat ride, 4th st. elevator, gambling, Farmer's market, stage performances, scenic river bluff views
I highly recommend staying in Dubuque, IA. It is a tourist destination with lots of entertaining and fun things to do.

Poor Experience

The staff was rude and it was extremely hot in our room. We learned that the A/C system is a known issue that was not fixed.

Old hotel, very well maintained.

Pros: Clean and comfortable. Nice King bed!
Cons: The view... Not much can be done. My room had a wonderful view of the aging dome roof of the pool.
Location: Tons of restaurants shopping very close by.
Just visiting for the day, and will be back... maybe even with the kids.

Nice hotel, but awkward location.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
The hotel itself was great. However, the in house restaurant was loud and unapppealing to those of my age group. We could not easily find another place close by to have dinner due to the really busy street. BUT! The brakfast buffett was terrific. I guess if you like a noisy, hopping restaurant or are comfortable driving in a strange city this may have been the place for you.

Great price and excellent location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, free shuttle to casino
Very convenient location as we go to Dubuque to spend a couple of days at the casino. Rooms are more than adequate. Our room smelled a little musty upon checkin but the staff took care of it right away.
