Love the title of your review as it's a saying that my Mother came up with back in the 70's. In fact a past regular guest; who was retired and had a hobby of cross stitching; made my Mother a cross stitch piece back in the early 80's. It has the saying "Home Away From Home" and still sits on... More

Great place to stay for families or couples. Very clean and quiet. Indoor pool and cute little slide, spa and staff was great. We were there for a large car show and the motel was fully booked. Many guests had their classic cars with them and felt very safe leaving them parked overnite. We loved and would stay again.

Thanks for your review and for choosing Black Hawk Motel. We hope that you had time to enjoy our indoor pool which is open until 11:30 pm each night and we hope you have the chance to return this summer when our outdoor pool will be open. Thanks again and have a great holiday weekend. Brad More

This was my 3rd year in a row that I've stayed at the Black Hawk Motel for the Automotion Car Show. Rooms are always clean and the staff is always friendly.

My wife and I stayed this past Friday on our way from northern Wisconsin to Madison. It was like a trip back in time, only with modern bathrooms (Yay!) A real room key and a layout like the motels of the 60's, a pool, sauna, spa, and a playground. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was fairly... More

This hotel was perfect for our quick overnight trip to the Dells. Quiet, super clean, simple. Walked to the downtown area in the evening and then out to eat. Many choices for dining within a short walk. Would definitely stay here again. We are past the "giant waterpark resort" age and this motel was just right for relaxing. Reminded me... More

Had to book last-minute and it was on my dime, so I was choosing carefully - but I wanted a pool. The rooms was in lovely shape, fridge and microwave, new carpet, nice wallpaper - very nice and comfortable. Similarly the indoor pool was large enough for a swim, and very carefully maintained - wood decor and hanging plants. It... More

We were able to stay here recently and just drove in for the night while traveling through the beautiful Wi. Dells.

We arrived in Wisconsin Dells with no reservation for the night. I had researched during the day and the Black Hawk Motel was one of four I thought would be good. I went to tripadvisor and read the reviews and that made my husband and I decide it would be our first choice. It is definitely an old motel, but... More

Stayed on business for 2 nights and the place really brought back memories for this 59-yr old. So much like places we stayed in my childhood/youth until Motel 6 came along (in the beginning a family of 4 could stay for $6!) The Blackhawk is so well maintained that it definitely doesn't show its age -- just its vintage. Very... More
