“Great Hotel and Staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

We recently stayed at the Best Western in Dubuque, IA and our stay was wonderful! The staff was very polite, friendly and helpful. The room was VERY clean and nice! We have stayed at hotels in the surrounding area as well and this is by far the best in town! The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were AMAZING! Our kids got a gift basket full of stuff, pool toys, coloring activities, bubbles, water bottles, treats, and much much more, they loved it! We also got tickets to the River Museum with our stay which was nice because the river museum is wonderful, but kind of pricey. We also got pizza from Chammps attached to the hotel, with our room package, which was delivered to our room with pop and it was very good and the gentleman that brought it was very polite! I noticed some of the reviews had a problem with a smell, but I thought the room smelled quite nice. I would highly recommend this hotel if staying in the Dubuque IA area!

Room Tip: The rooms that are poolside will be noisy until 11 so if you are planning on an early night then cho...

I stayed a the BW Dubuque this past summer. Was there for two nights during a business trip. Overall, the stay and the hotel were satisfactory, but my expectations were fairly low because my associates had booked the reservation through Priceline and we paid only $50/night (taxes included).

Positives:
Rooms are quite large and fairly well appointed (king bed room had a comfortable lounge chair)
Very nice work area including a chair tall enough to allow typing at the desk
Fast wireless internet service
Clean bathroom
Champps Americana restaurant connected to the hotel is a plus; good food and good service
Front desk staff very friendly and helpful
Request for a late checkout graciously accommodated

Negatives
Because of the indoor pool area (the old Holidome style), the entire hotel reeks of chlorine, not very pleasant
Both nights I was at the hotel, there were large groups of people having picnics in the pool area; lots of noise plus some strange aromas from the food in their coolers/on their tables; again, not a pleasant mix with the chlorine
Perhaps because my room was so large, it was also fairly dark; I now travel with a portable reading lamp, but this room was even darker than most
Although the rooms are large and well furnished, you can tell this is a fairly old hotel in need of some modernization/updating
Bed was okay, but not nearly as nice as what you find in a Fairfield or Hampton, similarly priced hotels
Rooms facing Highway 20/Dodge Street (the front of the hotel) can pick up a lot of traffic noise from this busy street
Turning left (west) out of the hotel parking lot can be difficult during the busy daytime hours

As I said, overall a satisfactory hotel. However, with so many better options in the area, the BW Conference Center is not high on my list for a return stay

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside of the hotel (away from Highway 20/Dodge Street); it will be signific...

The room was nice and big. The bed was comphy. The Internet worked after they reset the router. When I got to the room there was a moldy smell in the hallway just outside my room. It wasn't everywhere just in a three room area of the hall. Had it smelled like that in the room I would have asked to be moved. But the room had the formerly a smoking room smell that was covered up with air freshened scent. As I spent more time in the room the scent turned to more of a chlorine smell. They have a Holiday Inn type indoor pool arrea and the smell must migrate to the rooms.
The staff was nice and helpful.

We just got home from a very enjoyable stay at the Best Western Hotel and Conference Center in Dubuque Iowa. The room was very clean, very roomy, very quite and the bed was very comfortable. Our 2 1/2 year granddaughter had a great time in the pool and running around the grounds. They had a full breakfast that is included in the price of the room. Only complaint is the prices at the restaurant that is adjacent to the hotel. Not one that can afford $10.00 burgers. But not a problem there are plenty of other places to eat close by. Our family will definitely return for another enjoyable weekend real soon.Thank you Best Western of Dubuque.

Room Tip: Do not stay by the pool if you want quite early. The pool is open till 11pm.

I have never been a fan of Best Western until staying here. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and clean (I am a bit of a clean freak). The breakfast buffet was very good and the staff is really top-notch. The only issue we had was due to the severe cold, the ice on the outside of the "holidome" was so thick, it caused condensation on the inside so with the warmth of the inside, it was like it was raining. It was ok if in the pool, but rather annoying if trying to sit and enjoy the surroundings.

Room Tip: The king rooms have LCD/plasma TV's, but queen rooms have old tube TV's; the website DOES in...
