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. The hotel itself was nice, clean and the room was big enough for the family (husband and I and 9 year old and 1 year old) the pool... More

I recently stayed at Black Hawk Motel overnight. I was going to miss my estimated arrival time, so I phoned ahead.

2 friends and I just stayed at this motel. We enjoyed the spacious 3 double beds, updated décor, friendly staff, and the great value. The beds were comfortable and the refrigerator and microwave were clean and in good working condition. We would definitely stay here again.

A friend of mine and I were in Wisconsin Dells with our church group (UCG). I chose this motel because it was rated #1 by TripAdvisor for 2013! Well...I figured they'd surely want to keep up that kind of reputation, so I made reservations! I have to say I loved this place and won't think twice about going back again!... More

This year was our third annual stay with the Black Hawk with a group of friends (we are in our late 20s/early 30s), and it is absolutely perfect for us! Within walking distance to downtown restaurants, bars, and attractions, and we love the indoor pool/hot tub/sauna because our trip is always in mid-October. The motel offers many different styles of... More

I've been vacationing in the " Dells" since I was Six yrs old. Now that I have my own family I needed to find a place in town that would suit the needs of my developmentally disabled son. The larger "resorts' were simply too noisy and crowded. The Black Hawk motel was perfect for my large family. The house we... More

This place really lived up to its excellent reputation. We were visiting the Dells with 5 kids and needed a family friendly hotel. This worked wonderfully.

We had passed by this motel many times, but we always ended up staying in other "old favorites." Some of those were no longer up to our standards of cleanliness and comfort, so we consulted TripAdvisor. The reviews convinced us to try the Black Hawk - and WOW! This place is a hidden jewel. Yes, it is a throwback to... More
