My sister and I and my two kids stayed three nights at the Black Hawk Motel this week. It was a wonderful experience. We rented adjoining rooms. The rooms had new carpet, new tile and were spotless. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay, from the very comfortable new mattresses to the easy walk to downtown. The outdoor pool was... More

Melody, Thank you for taking the time to write us a great review. I don't recall ever having a review like yours that commented on the no violent games in our arcade, no cussing from other guests; a very detailed review of your stay with us. We like to cater towards families and couples and provide a friendly place to... More

We stayed at this motel for the second time in three years and will continue to stay there in the future. The room was spacious, clean and the air worked great (99 one day and 101 the second day). One small issue I had with the room was that the toilet did not have a lid on it. It certainly... More

We're glad to hear that we made your stay during your recent visti with us. We'll definitely consider your thoughts about not having a toilet seat. We have a few rooms that do have them, but my parents never added them in all the rooms because it's presents more of a cleaning issue. However, I feel it's a good thing... More

We just got back from our stay at the Black Hawk Motel, and we are already thinking about when we can return. We had a great time! We felt like we were at home the whole time.

Thanks for writing us a review! It's great to hear that you and your family had a great stay and also enjoyed pounding the Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtles in our retro arcade (open every night until 11:30 or later).

We stayed here in August 2011, while visiting the Dells. Chose it based on the reviews read at Tripadvisor and was very happy. The motel was very clean, very convenient to all attractions, and the front desk was efficient and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

we checked in and the carpet was stained and sticky, they came the same day and washed it, the only thing that would make the room great, would be a handheld faucet in the shower

We traveled to the Wisconsin Dells for the first time with our two daughters (ages 12 & 10) this summer. We were staying for just two days, so we simply wanted something inexpensive, clean and family-friendly. The Black Hawk Motel fit the bill perfectly! We stayed in one of the Black Hawk's newly renovated Superior Suites -- it was pristine... More

My 3 pre-teen grandsons loved the pools, both the outdoor pool with a diving board and the indoor pool, with a hot tub. My daughter loved the puffy pillows and mattresses, including the one on the roll away bed.
