Kids loved it - indoor and outdoor pools, playgrounds and game room. I had reservations weeks in advance and when I returned home, I found out two of my friends who did not have reservations were given the jacuzzi suite on the same day my family and I arrived. Although the room was clean, the toilet paper holder was not... More

Thank you for your review! It's great to hear that your kids loved our heated indoor & outdoor pools, playgrounds and game room and most importantly...your room was clean. I do apologize for the toilet paper holder in your room and the curtain rod and your very low supply of toilet paper. Maintaining 76 units and our property is a... More

We booked a room for 3 nights with our entire family (8 of us total). I was very excited based on the positive reviews. I very disappointed when we got there. This place is so over rated. Don't stay here unless you are willing to sit in a jam packed pool with kids and adults alike. The thought of getting... More

Thanks for the review...I, my staff and the rest of the Trip Advisor community would have liked a bit more information. Guests and potential guests who do their research will discover that we are a motel. We hope they do not expect a grand hotel experience. We offer clean, comfortable (many renovated) rooms, great value with both Noah's Ark AND... More

I was genuinely surprised at how great this little hotel/motel/cottage rental is. The pool areas are great. The rooms are excellent. The price is good. It is dated, in a retro feel way, but very clean. Not to mention the passes that come with the wrist bands! It was a great stay, I will stay here every time from now... More

This hotel is worth it! You have a nice, clean hotel, which is at one end of the downtown dells strip. This means it is quiet, and that is worth it if you ever travel to the dells for any event or holiday. The hotel has two pools (one indoor that is heated, so you can swim all year round),... More

We stayed at the Blackhawk last summer for a few nights. My kids are 9 and 10 and the Blackhawk is a good family option in the Dells, but I'm not quite sure why it gets the #1 rating. The beds are ok and could certainly use new pillows, but the big draw is the free tickets to Noah's Ark... More

This hotel is a bit away from most of the attractions but it was a quiet room at night (room 10) due to the sturdy older construction. The reception desk is a bit off putting with a person not being there right away. The pool was fine but it gets 4+ feet deep very quickly so not good for younger... More

We travel to the dells every year. This year was our 4th year. Normally we stay at the motels on the strip by Noah's ark. We decided to try downtown this time.
