Dubuque's Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 19, 2014

The waterpark is fantastic, but if you are going Monday-Thursday make sure it is going to be open, because usually it is not on those days. There isn't much there for teenagers, but young kids love it. Lots of lifeguards too. Tony Roma's is a great place to eat and offers a whole lot of food on their kid's menus. The Dubuque River Museum is next door and can be walked to. There is also a casino within walking distance. There is a beautiful walkway in the back of the hotel on the river that also has statues along it to look at. This place is slightly expensive, but you can frequently find specials. FYI, the beds are very comfortable. The pull out couches are EXTREMELY uncomfortable and not very big.

Unique Quality: The waterpark

not so much

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 5, 2010

The accomodations were fine. Nothing special, we are not picky people. It was much like a room at Super 8 - bathroom, bed, tv, fridge and microwave. However, Super 8's are not situated in a "resort". I was expecting a more lavish setting. The view was wonderful thank goodness. Had a great view of the mighty Mississippi. The beds sucked. Neither one of us slept well. We went for the waterpark experience for our children. The waterpark doesn't look like it had been updated since it first opened. The cargo netting had many holes in it that were "fixed" instead of replaced. There were holes in the cement decking that lead into the water that appeared to have had a entrance ladder removed at some point that children under 4 could have easily gotten their feet caught in. Gum on the stairs to the slides. Seriously, this waterpark isn't that big that maintenence personell can't handle cleaning on a regular basis. Old bandaids on the stairs. There are 3 slides. Thats it. For the amount of money, there certainly isn't much to entertain the kids. It appears old and rundown. The chlorine was obscene. It is dark, not much sunlight enters into the waterpark. There was a couch next to the waterpark that had a huge stain on it. Come on - either pay to have it cleaned or replace it. You are a "resort" for pete's sake! The adjacent restaurant was called Tony Romas. Food was awful. Very expensive and took forever to prepare. The booster seat we were given was filthy. There is no continental breakfast so if you want to stay in you have to order room service which is provided by Tony Romas. Breakfast wasn't any better. They forgot to bring silverware with the order. Needless to say we were not impressed and cut our trip short just to get the hell out of there. Such a shame - Dubuque is a beautiful town with an abundant amount of history. The National River Museum and Aquarium was great. There is so much to see, bring a stroller for your toddler. A lot of walking if you are up to it. The location of the "resort" is fantastic, it was such a let down to experience it though. Definately go explore Dubuque, but be prepared to be disappointed if you stay at Grand Habour for the resort and waterpark experience.
