Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #3 of 17 Hotels in Dubuque
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2017

I haven't stayed at a Best Western in a long time, but took a flyer on this one, based on location and passable reviews. Older property that could use some updates. Reasonably well maintained. Staff was fine. Breakfast, too -- located in adjoining restaurant (Champs). Had an exercise room that was a little cramped but adequate. Had a large pool area and hot tub that were good. Rooms were somewhat dark and dingy with older furniture. Room was clean enough, though. I think it would have been fine at a lower price point, but just didn't think it was on a par with places where I typically stay (Hampton Inn, Hyatt Place, Holiday Inn Express, etc.) at a similar price point. If you need to stay in that area, it's OK, but if you have flexibility on where you stay in Dubuque area, you may want to explore other options.

Room Tip: Away from pool area to avoid noise and pool odor.

We are sorry to hear you felt your stay with us at the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center was "so-so". Starting this winter we have plans to remodel each of our guest rooms which will include new carpet, furniture, bedding, window coverings, paint, lighting, etc. so hopefully when you return next you will find rooms to be more up to your standards.

Best regards,

Mike Guthrie
Front Desk Lead

Staff was friendly and the room was clean.Would stay again if I was in the area. The free shuttle was nice and the staff was friendly. Stayed next to the pool and it was noisy but expected. The hotel was full and couldn't switch rooms

We appreciate the 5 circle review and are pleased to hear you would stay again with us in the future at the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center. As you found out we do sell out quite often, so we suggest planning your future visits in advance and request a room away from the indoor pool/atrium where we are sure you will find it a lot more peaceful and relaxing.

Best regards,

Mike Guthrie

We stayed for 2 nights at this Dubuque Best Western. Overall we had a good experience. The staff was professional and very helpful. I had taught in Dubuque back in the early 80's and it was interesting to see how the city has grown. Our room was great and I loved having a daily newspaper outside my door each morning even on Sunday. The breakfast buffet was good but I would have liked to see different items the second day. They were exactly the same.

Avoid pool rooms and times when there are big groups if you prefer a quiet room. Room could have been cleaner and brighter. Felt dingy and run down in the room even though lobby is up to date and nice. Lots of parking and convienient location.

Thank you for taking time to complete a review, although we are sorry your felt the need to rate us low, after your recent stay at the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center. Please keep in mind the majority of our rooms are located away from the pool offering a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere; next time you visit you may want to consider a standard room versus poolside/view room. Starting sometime the 4th quarter of this year we will be upgrading all of our rooms to include new carpet, furniture, beds, bedding, window coverings and lighting. Hopefully during your next visit you find our improvements to meet your expectations.

Best regards,

Mike Guthrie

First time staying at this hotel and first time at a Best Western in a long while. Very impressed with lobby, restaurant, and facilities overall. Huge pool atrium. Pool and hot tub were of adequate size, and tons of seating at tables in pool area. I am sure this hotel is busy on winter weekends. Rooms were very nice, however walls were pretty thin and noise from adjoining rooms was very noticeable. Breakfast was included at restaurant attached to the hotel, and it was an excellent buffet style hot breakfast. Compared to the nearby Grand Harbor, the rooms were much nicer at the Best Western than Grand Harbor. Pool area wasn't as extensive, but everything was not as run down as Grand Harbor. Would definitely consider this hotel with kids wanting indoor activities at a hotel.

We appreciate you taking time out of your day to complete a review of the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel & Conference Center after your recent visit with us. We are happy to hear you were impressed with our property and that you enjoyed all of the amenities we have to have our guests, including the great free hot breakfast buffet at Champps Americana each morning. We are also pleased to find out you felt our rooms are much nicer than one of our competitors and to think...we will be remodeling our rooms starting sometime during the 4th quarter of this year...making them even nicer than present conditions.
