I researced just about every single lodging option in the Dells before booking 3 nights at the Blackhawk Motel. My wife and I and 3 kids (7, 5 and 3) were looking to get away for a few days and simply wanted a nice to place to stay and enjoy ourselves. I've never been a fan of the huge resorts... More

We were thrilled with our experience and commented several times that we loved it, it exceeded our expectations, we would be back and we would recommend it to others.

We stayed three nights at the Black Hawk and absolutely loved it. When we pulled up we immediately felt like we were back in time in the 1950's. This place is old school, retro and we loved it. The room was super clean, beds were soft and never heard a sound from neighboring rooms. The outdoor pool was fantastic as... More

We stayed at the Black Hawk Motel this last Monday night. While we were only there for 1 night, it was clear that this is a delightful place.

Was planning a weekend getaway last minute and after reading the reviews I thought I would give this place a shot. Glad I did! Got a room with one queen sized bed.

This was a very nice, clean and reasonably priced motel. It was very hot day and I was looking forward to a refreshing outdoor pool. Unfortunately the pool was very warm but I believe that it would be difficult to keep any outdoor pool cool after a long stretch of heat. The indoor pool was actually more refreshing than the...

Very interesting point....usually our indoor pool (open until 11:30 pm or later each night) wins over our outdoor pool on those unwanted rainy summer days, but usually not during the hot summer days. We agree it was brutal last week with the heat index well over 100 and our outdoor pool was hot like bath water...to hot, but it's heated... More
