A-C We enjoyed our stay at the Black Hawk. The setting is in a rejuvenated building at the heart of a rejuvenated downtown. The room was comfortable and quaint and the service was very friendly and flexible. The downtown setting provides multiple entertainment options - restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shops and trails along the nearby river - beautiful in the... More

The room we stayed in was nice. We really liked the huge walk in shower and being close to some great bars and restaurants. However, it was my experience after that left me disappointed with the hotel. I forgot a pair of really nice earrings on the nightstand. I called the hotel and was surprised and relieved when they found... More

We have stayed at this hotel for our Anniversary the past three years. You sort of step back in time but with modern amenities. The room was roomy and very comfortable. Ask for room 204' our favorite so far. The attached restaurants are a real plus and a wine patio a few doors north. Just a very relaxing place to... More

We stayed in a king room in the newer "motel" behind the actual hotel. We prefer this arrangement when traveling on our motorbikes as it is easier to unload and load. The room was spacious, nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. We slept soundly in the very comfortable bed and if there were people in the adjacent room, we certainly did... More

My Fiance and I stayed here and were amazed! The hotel was super clean, staff super friendly. We stayed in the room with the Jacuzzi in it and we had a bit of trouble with that but they took care of it for us. We will be back!!!

we go to Cedar Falls a couple times a year and every time we try to stay at the Blackhawk Hotel. It is on main street so we are close to restaurants and many different shops . The rooms are very nostalgic and just take you back to a more simpler time when social media didn't bombard you. The staff... More

We traveled to Cedar Falls to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of my wife's parents. We usually stay at their house but this time chose the Black Hawk and now this is where we will stay on future trips to Iowa. The room was spacious, the staff was great and the location perfect!! I must say that the floors were... More

The Blackhawk Hotel sits in the heart of downtown Cedar Falls. Your just a few doors down from the Cedar Falls Community Theatre (take in a show while you're in town - it's not uncommon to find former New York thespians or SNL stars on that stage). Cup of Joe is your spot for fresh coffee in the morning. This... More

Before you read any further, just remember you're in Cedar Falls, IA. This place is not going to have an onsite spa, a workout facility, or a traditional concierge. I was there for a couple days for a work event, so my company paid for the room. If I ended up paying in excess of $200 a night for the... More

This hotel was very neat. The lobby is GORGEOUS with all of the old woodwork. I was staying here for business and it was just a neat place. There is a rumor that it's haunted but my boss assures me it is not :) The breakfast the next morning was cooked to order and very good, although the menu is... More
