Our kids weren't sold when we first pulled up to the motel. From the outside it is a quaint, dated, throwback old time kind of place with a nice pool in the middle of the courtyard and a big statue of Chief Blackhawk at poolside. But they quickly grew to love the place.The pool and diving board were wonderful -... More

I like the title of your review,...as we are definitely throwback w/ modern touches. It's great to hear that your kids quickly grew to love our place, even though first impression is that we're an old motel. The majority of our rooms are located in the court yard with our 5 pools in the center. We have had many guests... More

All the other great reviews are spot on. My wife and I along with our 8 & 10 year old daughters enjoyed this motel. I will start by saying I do work for hotels and motels (bathtub repairs and refinishing) and I have been in more than I can count. This one is at the top for their category. The... More

We just returned from 3 nights in the Dells and staying at the Black Hawk for our first time. We saw the reviews on TripAdvisor and not only got a great price for our 2 queen room, but even received a confirmation in the mail.

We booked our stay 2 weeks prior to our vacation. We checked the reviews & all were pretty good. If you are planning on doing a lot of walking in the downtown area, I suggest you plan on driving & parking in one of the public lots. It's quite a walk from the hotel to downtown, but we made it....

We stayed only one night but found our room to be updated - large refrigerator, microwave, TV - two large Queen beds and a new bathroom. The windows were double pane glass which kept out the weather and the noise of the kids playing in the outdoor pool. We're not youngsters and wanted above all - a good night's rest.... More

When I hear the word "motel", often times I tend to be leary. This is a beautifully maintained and incredibly clean property that is located on the outskirts of town. It is very small and quiet, which we loved. My husband and I stayed with our 5 year old daughter. She loved the play area. The rooms were immaculately clean... More

Thanks for taking a chance on this "motel"! Sounds like you really enjoyed your stay with us and found us to be convenient to the downtown area and surrounding attractions and restaurants. We are spread out over 4 sections and have 75 units, so we are larger than some of our guests think we are...and this allows us to offer... More

Based on reviews and price of the Black Hawk, we decided to stay here for a quick couples getaway. So glad we did!
