Good hotel for Burlington
Reviewed 3 months ago

We stayed here for a quick weekend for St. Patrick's Day. Cass at check in was very welcoming. The room was decorated nicely. However, the TV mounts need attention to detail as they make the room look terrible (see picture attached). The bed was great with alot of pillows. The room was extremely quiet. The temperature wouldn't go down past 68 degrees which did affect our sleep. We had the breakfast buffet the next morning and it was good. Nancy was friendly very attentive with our drinks and plates. Note: if you want to go to Coldstone, you currently have to walk outside. We did enjoy the casino, but it is small. The bartenders are great with a good selection of drinks.

Certainly not upscale

The food was terrible. I had the veal parmesan. It was smothered in sauce and I don't think the meat was real veal. The room was noisy from some mechanical machine running down the hall. The room was dark and dingy. I was on the first floor and the window was unlocked when I checked it.

Catfish Bend and Spa is a great place to stay. The rooms are large and clean and very comfortable. I did not go to the Casino, but have been there in the past and it provides ample opportunities for a Midwest Casino. The exercise room has a good set of free wrights which is hard to find at most hotels. Breakfast is always excellent with a nice buffet and fresh eggs made to order.

Spa Hotel - Comfortable, modern, and beautiful rooms

We stayed in the "Spa" side of the hotel, which is adults only. The king bed was incredibly comfortable. The decor was modern, clean, and very nice. All the staff were very friendly and the breakfast buffet (not included in room rate) was good. There was an omelette and waffle chef, as well as the standard serve yourself items. Would recommend this for a stay in the Burlington area

What a room!

In the middle of eastern Iowa, is a gem with a strange name. Catfish Bend does not make you think of a luxurious resort. Although the name is ambiguous, you will not be disappointed with the quality and diversity that you experience at this incredible resort. We stayed here for our wedding night. The room was as good or better than any room that we have stayed at in five star resorts in Las Vegas. There is really something for everyone. The property has a waterpark, a Panera Bread, a go cart track, laser tag, a large arcade, a candy shop, a casino, an indoor tight rope area for kids, a top-notch spa with hot tub and pool, a night club, a coffee bar, etc etc.
Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay here longer as we had a flight to catch in Chicago for our honeymoon. Trust me...... you will want to visit this resort in the middle of nowhere Iowa.
