Small suite.....great if you want to cook in a bit. Reasonably priced and clean!!! We were there to see Carousel at The Grand Opera House.....great weekend!!!!! Dubuque is a wonderful weekend get away...not as touristy as Galena but close enough to pop over there for a couple hours!!!!

I had never stayed in a Mainstay before. The suite consists of an efficiency kitchen, a small living area, a bathroom, and a semi private bedroom area. The kitchen area was smaller than most other suites (I.e. Residence Inns). Other than that the room was quite comfortable. The front desk team were very welcoming and were quite helpful answering questions...

Very nice place to stay. One thing the lady who handle the food did something nasty. She was preparing food with gloves on and then started messing with the garbage can with the same gloves on. Oh did I mention she started touching other food with the same gloves. She DIDNT CHANGE THE GLOVES. Infectious control at its all time...

My wife and I stayed her on a Saturday night. The staff was GREAT! They called the Casino for us and had their bus pick us up and brought us back to the hotel later. That was a great service so we could drink and have a great time. The rooms were a little dated but for the price they...

Over the years we and/or family have stayed at nearly all the lodging choices in Dubuque and there are many ranging from a casino hotel, the classic Julien inn, Ma & Pa independents and B&B's. However MainStay Suites is the bargain - an entire suite with kitchen (inc. dishwasher!) for excellent prices. On the west side, just a couple blocks...

I was travelling for business and just stayed one night. The check in went fast and I was in a room pronto. But it reeked of cigarette smoke. Come to find out they actually do have smoking rooms. I couldn't take it and so asked to be moved. The 2nd room was clean, pretty well arranged, nothing fancy. But that's...

Seems to be a relatively new hotel situated outside Dubuque. Receptionist was friendly and helpful. Received a welcome gift. Room was great, contained a kitchenette, sitting room area. Bed very comfortable. Good breakfast. Very good value.

I stayed here twice on my Iowa vacation and thought it was a great value compared to others in the area. On the first time the only flaw I noticed was that the cabinet drawer was broken but maintenance fixed it the next day. The rooms were clean and comfortable with the beds being a little on the firm side...

I was placed at MainStay Suites by the company I was interning for. I stayed there for a week and was very impressed with the room i was given. The kitchenette worked well for my cooking needs and they supply food and beverages on Wednesday nights. The grounds and building are all very clean. The air conditioning worked very well....

I had a sigh of relief when I walked in. This hotel is grouped with the other budget hotels, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Check-in literally took 30 seconds. A free snack was offered to all guests checking in. The room is like any other extended stay hotel, apartment sized appliances, small couch, etc. The only things I...
