“Always a great experience with Black Hawk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We have our annual girls weekend at Black Hawk every spring. The owners are always very nice. The rooms are a good size and very clean. It looks like they are renovating some of the rooms to keep them up to date. The indoor pool is a good size and is very comfortable in temp. there is a mini fridge, microwave, blow dryer, and DVD player in the room. It's a great value!

It is great to hear that we provide your accommodations for your annual girls spring getaway to the Dells! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and for choosing Black Hawk Motel. We do heat our indoor pool to a comfortable temp as I believe our guests are paying for a heated indoor pool....and ours is open until 11:30 pm each night. Yes, we are renovating more rooms this year, Whirlpool suite / king bed balcony, Two Queen Superior, Queen Poolside / Northside, Adjoining 1 Queen and 1 Full and some budget rooms. Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Stayed at Black Hawk with our sports team that was playing at JustAGame Fieldhouse. I booked this place based on reviews from travelocity and just like many before us, we were not disappointed. Reasonably priced, great location, VERY CLEAN and comfortable beds!

Some in the group were a bit skeptical of an older, "motel" but everyone was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the stay. Our family booked the 2 bedroom house which worked out great to have a gathering space for our larger group hangout. They have a variety of rooms and cabins to meet anyones needs.

Indoor pool area and game room very nice as well.

The group talked about coming back to the area later in summer for a more relaxing weekend without basketball and we look forward to the wonderful hospitality of Brad and his wife again.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review regarding your recent stay with us. We are happy to hear that everyone enjoyed their stay and we're also pleasantly suprised seeing that we are an older motel. However, we are family owned and operated since 1945 and we are constantly putting money back into the business, as we plan on being here decades from now. Our two bedroom house is one of our most requested of our 30 different room types. At over 1300 sq. feet it makes for an ideal gathering spot for sports teams and familys as well. It's 16x24 deck with grill also make our two bedroom house even more popular during the summer months.
Thank you again for choosing Black Hawk Motel as your lodging choice and we look forward to accommodating you in the future!

This Motel is a good value for your dollar. It has a surprisingly large indoor pool with hot tub and sauna, a yard with play equipment for children, etc. The rooms are clean and up to date. Ours came with a fridge and microwave. It didn't have a coffee pot, but there was complimentary coffee in the office. Our only complaint is when the fridge kicked on and off it was rather loud and might cause light sleepers some problems, but could be unplugged if not being used. We also liked the sitting space outside the front door. Overall, we were satisfied with the experience and will stay there again when in The Dells.

We're glad we provided you with a clean room at a reasonable price! Thank you for your review and telling others about our property. Our indoor pool area is open until 11:30 pm each night and it's exterior entrance so it's not attached to any rooms. Sorry about the loud refrigerator in your room, I would have been able change it out for you, but sounds like you just unplugged it. We do have some fridges over a decade old and the one in your room may be nearing it's last days? Thank you again for choosing Black Hawk Motel and we hope to see you again in the near future. Have a great week! Brad

We really enjoyed a nice weekend get away. The room was clean, off room parking and newly remodeled. Staff was really helpful when looking for attractions and good food near by. We will be back again during the summer with family and friends for sure. Great value for the price!

Room Tip: If traveling with kids request a room near the indoor pool and arcade.

My family and I have been staying here for the past 17+ years and love everything about it! The staff is always so nice and treats you like family! They always keep the rooms and motel grounds clean and there is a parking spot right infront of your motel room. They have a very nice outdoor pool with a slide and diving board, have a kids pool, indoor pool and 2 hot tubs. They also have an arcade with a pool table. They offer a variety of room choices at the best prices around! It is within walking distance of restaurants and downtown dells, and also offer special pricing for different attractions. My family comes here every summer and always looks forward to returning.

The Black Hawk is one of those places that takes a step back in time... in the best way possible! Clean. Comfortable. Retro but completely hip. The pool area was always spotless and the water was warm. The staff is friendly and low-key. Parking is perfect. And the rates can't be beat.

I'll be back with the family this summer!

Great to hear that we provided the "Perfect Girls Weekend" while still keeping that Retro feeling.
Sounds like you had time to enjoy our warm pools. We believe in spending the extra $ and keeping our pool water warm to increase guest satisfaction as oposed to a lower heating bill and a more uncomfortable swim for our guests. Glad to hear you like our RESERVED parking for all our rooms...this was my Dad's idea back in the late 80's and we have had many compliments on it since. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review and we hope to see you again soon! Remember to check our website for our now 30 different room types where you'll find detailed room descriptions, photos and reasonable rates. Thanks again!

We visited this with our 2 young kids and it was a perfect stay! Without the price and crowds of a big waterpark, this place worked very well for us. Our kids loved the indoor and outdoor pools. There was also a game room to play in. The room itself was clean and cozy. And you can't beat the price. It was also an easy walk to the shops and restaurants. We would stay here again for sure. An excellent choice if you are on a budget.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We're happy to hear that we provided a perfect stay for you and your family. Glad to hear that you enjoyed our indoor and outdoor pools and vintage arcade as well. We are just a short walk to the downtown Dells shopping district where's there's plenty of shops, attractions and restaurants and our heated indoor pool is open late until 11:30 pm each night so there's always time for the little ones, as well as adults to take a swim after a night of strolling the downtown. We hope to see you and your family again soon!
