The Don Q Inn in Dodgeville – A Quirky Hotel


In Dodgeville,  we saw an airplane perched on top of a hill with a hotel across from it.  It turns out it was the famed Don Q Inn! The plane landed there a final time on 10-16-77.

Not only that, the train depot of Dodgeville is also here at this site.

This is a unique theme hotel located near these popular attractions.

We asked permission to look inside the plane, you didn’t have to be a guest.  On the other side was a ladder to go in.  So cool! Here is a view of the cockpit.

Inside the hotel was just as interesting. We could not see any of the theme rooms but we saw the lobby. In the winter relax in a barber or dentist chair (!) around a circular fireplace.

A very cool place, we hope to stay a night sometime.
