We've stayed at this hotel several times, the only hotel we ever stay at in the Dubuque/Galena area and are always impressed and continue to return. It's close to home but still far enough away to be able to relax and enjoy some time away

The motel was very elegant and well maintained. When you enter the lobby you feel like you have stepped back in time. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. It was a nice touch to have wine glasses and a cork screw in the room to open the bottle of wine we bought in a local winery. We will... More

Was pleased with my check in experience. The young man who checked me in was very helpful and pleasant. The hotel lobby is beautiful, but the ambience was spoilt by a noisy group who were having meetings there. And they had placed equipment all over the lobby, and moved the center couch to one side. My room was quiet, however:... More

The Hotel Julien is know for its beauty and historic significance throughout the area, but even for having lived in Dubuque my entire life I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the staff was and how accommodating. Our room was everything that we were looking for and the view was wonderful! If we ever need to recommend a hotel it... More

Beautifully restored old hotel, comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Walking distance to many other places. The only meal that we had at Carolines was breakfast but it was excellent. We wil definitely return for a long weekend.

We like to get away from the business of our lives to relax. This is an excellent place to go. And there are many activities you can partake in through the very progressive city of Dubuque. Travelzoo has great deals from time to time also.

Everything about our stay was very nice. We chose this hotel exclusively for the EV chargers in the hotel parking lot and they delivered! The hotel has been refinished to show its original charm, but with all the modern conveniences. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Next time I will make time for a spa visit, though. This place... More

A satisfying experience; would highly recommend a stay at this handsomely refurbished 1900-vintage hotel. Hotel restaurant is excellent. Staff were unfailingly pleasant and knowledgeable. Very attractive, comfortable lobby.

If you like rustic, you will be in heaven. Overall, the hotel is just OK. The front desk staff didn't even look at us which made for a somewhat not impressive check-in process. The hotel is in a good location and is one of the higher end hotel in Dubuque, but it looks and feels old (which it is). Room... More

Experience did not equate to the price charged. Had anticipated a much different experience, would not be interested in returning. Room was not up to par concerning cleanliness, very worn out in need of update.
