I was attending a conference at the Grand River Center which is attached to Grand Harbor Resort via skywalk. I heard that the riverview rooms were nice. The rooms are pretty economical and traditional, but the access to the Riverwalk, Grand River Center, and waterpark...More

We went to Grand Harbor because we had a wedding next door to attend. We were not there for the waterpark just the convenience of the location. Our view of the Mississippi River Walk from our room was spectacular. Our room location was horrible. We...More

I stayed here for just one night. The location is convenient to what I was in Dubuque for. I did not participate in any waterpark activities so I cannot comment on that.

Great place for kids. They really enjoy the water park and arcade. We really like that there's a Tony Roma' s restaurant in the hotel that provides room service. The rooms are nice and clean, beds are comfortable, staff is friendly. It's across the street...More

My kids loved the water park and arcade and the setting on the river is stunning but our visit otherwise was mediocre. For what we paid for the Fireplace Suite, the attention to detail was lacking. Our hotel room was big but the bathroom door...More

We have been to bigger, grander water parks, but that didn't matter to the kids! We stayed a Thursday night so it wasn't too busy. The slides had short lines and the three boys (ages 7, 8, 9) really enjoyed the large climbing structure and...More

I am not sure because I did not use the waterpark at all when I stayed there. I do know they have "package" deals where you get a room and waterpark access all in one.

I agree...not cold,but not really warm either. A rash guard will help to keep you warm. I got a bit chilly after about 1 hour.
