Private, Pampering Stat

4.2 on July 03, 2015

This was our first B&B stay and we loved the privacy. The owner made himself scarce and we weren't bothered by other residents. The Delux Suite and the enormous jetted tub was well worth the price. We also loved how close the B&B was to other Dubuque attractions. We were able to walk everywhere! We had a great stay and will definitely come again!


Home away from home

4.6 on March 31, 2015

The Solon Langworthy House is unique as far as B&Bs go. Staying here gives you the feeling of staying in your own home away from home. They make it their business to stay out of your business and they do an excellent job doing this while providing a very clean, well designed, comfortable environment. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood in Dubuque. There were wine glasses and an opener ready for us when we arrived. For breakfast there were two muffins warmed, fresh fruit, and waffle batter individually portioned into containers. There is a high quality waffle maker in the kitchen and I made up a few waffles for my wife and I. They were delicious. They also had tea, coffee, and orange juice available. I loved my stay here. I am sad to see some reviews giving low scores for the "lack of a personal touch" but their business model is clearly stated on their webpage for all to see. They delivered exactly what they said they would.


Great place

4.8 on February 20, 2015

Me and my husband loved the place, it's quite and privet, it's a great place to get away from the city. Breakfast was delicious! We are already talking about coming back:)


Beautiful room, nice safe location, good stay overall :)

4.6 on November 06, 2014

We stayed in the Deluxe room - BEAUTIFUL room but a little close to the entrance. Good amenities overall, owners were easy to contact, and like the description says they really value privacy. The breakfast felt more like a hotel experience with a help yourself continental breakfast in the kitchen. Great value for a B&B and we would certainly do it again.


Great ambiance!

4.4 on October 28, 2014

I loved that while we were still in the city, it was a quiet neighborhood set in the historic district of Dubuque. Breakfast was fantastic with so much variety. The Deluxe Suite was worth every cent!


R-E-L-A-X'ING!

4.0 on October 21, 2014

Very appreciative of the privacy and quiet of the SLH. Understated but pseudo-artsy / antique meets contemporary. A wonderful breakfast which included fresh fruit / raspberries. One of my favorite B&B's. A big shout-out to the Innkeepers! Jo & Lori


Quiet stay

4.6 on September 29, 2014

Enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet- we never saw another soul which was a little unsettling to us but we enjoyed everything. It was nice to have movies to watch and the breakfast was wonderful.


Great Labor Day Stay

4.0 on September 06, 2014

Very responsive hosts. Great location to explore Dubuque and the Mississippi River. If you like privacy, you've got it here. Would stay here again.


First Timers

4.2 on March 17, 2013

First time staying in a B&B. Was a great expectation and was great to have a room and not be in a hotel. This one was great because of the location to the casino, downtown and all the resturants. Will be staying at more B&B and if we stay in Dubuque again we will stay here if possible.


Great Place!

We stayed in the Deluxe Sweet and LOVED it! Very private, which is just how my husband and I like it. We didn't see owners of the location, breakfast was out and ready for us by 9am. This was a small place, quaint, and the tub in that room was one I wish I could have taken with us. It was a great experience, so relaxing, we loved it.
