We stayed for 4 nights, clean hotel, great location, has all the amenities you need. It's a great price for people who are on a budget as well. We plan on returning back to this hotel at the end of the month. Thanks,

We hope you can visit us next July 4th (or sooner) and hopefully the fireworks be on display, as this is the first year I can remember that they were cancelled because of the... More

We have been staying at the Blackhawk for about 20 years. Each time when we stay there we've always been satisfied with the rooms and the attention we have gotten from all the staff. I would not stay anywhere else in the Dells.

It's great to hear that we provided you with a small room at a budget price which allowed you to do more things in the great Wisconsin Dells Area. It sounds like you were in room #22? This is a small room w/ a small price, however it's all newly remodeled. Back in 1988 plans for this room was to... More

Good deal with waterpark pass especially in peak season. Paid little over $100/day for 2 queen bed room in busy July 4th week. Compared to $200 ~$250 at water park resort, it is a great bargain. However, you get what you pay for... It is a motel. Don't recommend poolside rooms that are not updated yet.

We're happy to hear that we won out over the water park resorts because we provided a great bargain in today's tough economy. We are a Motel all the way and we feel that we are preserving a piece of True Americana with modern touches. We have another section of poolside rooms that we'll be remodeling this winter as we...

I stayed here with my two kids last week. I have stayed at Great Wolf four times, Wilderness two times, Chula Vista two times, and a couple other hotel/water parks over the years. In all that time, I never gave a thought to the smaller motels. Those days are over. Blackhawk Motel was clean, quiet (at night, the only time... More

This was our first trip to the Dells, and we used tripadvisor.com for reviews. Black Hawk Motel was the best motel we have stayed in! The motel was clean, and comfortable. The owners were so nice and immediately helped us with anything we needed. It is close to downtown Dells, restaurants, and just a short drive to other attractions. The... More

Our first trip to the Dells, really relied on reviews to guide us for accommodations. I can say that we didn't go wrong. I checked out the other places I had considered, and believe that I made the right choice. Not only was the wrong clean and comfortable, but proximity to downtown was really nice. Yes, it's a bit far... More

The Motel is a great location! It's on the quiet end of downtown and only a four block walk. They have two pools & two hot tubs, so there's room for everyone.

We stayed for 5 nights in one of the king budget rooms, room 5. Parking right outside, just downstairs. I was a little worried about street noise, but the only disturbances came from the motorcyclists staying at the hotel across the street going out for breakfast in the morning. The room was immaculately clean and the bed was one of... More
