“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This motel was such a nice surprise! We weren't expecting such a spacious, clean room with our own mini fridge and microwave, plus friendly and accommodating staff. The price was excellent as well! We did not have a chance to use the pools, but they looked great. The motel is a bit older, but very well-kept. It is on a quiet side street, but still close to the excitement. I would definitely stay here again!

Jena, Thanks much for your review! We always like hearing when our guests have been surprised! We have heard it numerous times...some of our guests are a bit leary because we are in fact a MOTEL. We are happy to hear that you found your room to be clean and spacious and you would stay with us again! We hope you are able to return to the Dells again when the waterparks and all the Dells has to offer is in full swing. Thanks again and we hope to accommodate you soon! Sincerely, Brad

The prices are amazing and the rooms are clean. Having a mini-fridge is a bonus as well. However, if you are "spoiled" by hotel and resort settings, this may not be for you. The rooms are very basic and quite small. The beds were not the most comfortable. We had a whirlpool suite with a giant whirlpool, so large that by the time it was half-full, the hot water was gone. For a family on a budget who will be out and about doing tourist activities, this would be perfect. For a couple who want a romantic weekend away from it all, we found it a bit lacking.

Thank you for providing feedback concerning your recent stay with us. We appreciate all reviews we receive and realize that our guests may have different preferences or opinions. Many nice lodging options in the Dells, from water front to B&B's and Spa's...perhaps some more romantic that others? We're glad you found us to be a great value with a clean room. I believe you were in one of our whirlpool rooms on the ground floor as we did have an issue w/ the hot water heaters earlier this month, we apolgize for that. We are glad you thought your whirlpool was large enough, but actually our whirlpool suites w/ balcony have even larger whirlpools and are also larger and newer rooms. Thanks again for your review and for staying with us. Have a great fall and winter season and we hope to accommodate you at another time, perhaps when your not looking for a romantic getaway. Sincerely, Brad

Gaetano, A sincere THANK YOU to you and your entire family for traveling to vacation to the Wisconsin Dells Area and choosing Black Hawk Motel. It was very much a pleasure to accommodate all of you. September is a great time to visit the Dells as there's still plenty to do. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review and your compliments that we are the best motel you have ever stayed at....wow! We hope to see you and your family again soon, perhaps during the summer months when the Dells is in full operation? Thanks again and have a great winter / holiday season. Sincerely, Brad

Friends recommended Black Hawk Motel to us about ten years ago and we have never stayed anywhere else in the Dells since then. This motel is clean, well-kept, has great pools, hot tubs, sauna, kiddie areas, and a great variety of rooms. It is family owned and operated, and Brad and Tena are always so friendly and take time to get to know their guests. They have many repeat customers, and over the years we've actually gotten to know several families that come to stay the same weekend that we do each summer. All of the rooms have a microwave, refrigerator, and the beds are very comfortable. You can't go wrong with the prices either. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nice, we prefer to stay in Room 48 or 49 in the summer - they are right across...

Hi Carole, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review, it's very much appreciated! We can't thank you enough for all of your continued years of patronage! All of our repeat guests are the backbone of our success and is the reason we have been in business since 1945 and continue to grow each year. Thank you to you and all our repeat and first time guests for choosing to stay with us. In all honesty, all the great people that we meet and have got to know over the years is what makes our job easy. It's always nice to see you and everyone and it's a quick escape from the grind when we can visit with you for a few minutes when you are here. Thanks again and have a great fall and winter season....and don't forget to vote on November 6th. Truly, Brad

We were only in the Dells area for one night, but enjoyed our stay at the Black Hawk. Very clean, comfortable, convenient and everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the morning coffee, too!

Room Tip: Nothing fancy but very clean and comfortable. A great value!!

We're glad we provided you with a clean room at a great value, making for a comfortable stay. One of the many reasons that we are not fancy is because of our many repeat guests who prefer us to keep our room rates reasonable, all while providing a clean, comfortable place to stay, with many in room amenties. We're also glad you enjoyed the morning coffee, we love it as well. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review and we hope to see you again soon! Regards, Brad

My Father and I stayed here for a week the first week of October. We were very happy with our room and appreciated the fact that we could park right at our door. No waiting for an elevator or stairs to haul luggage up and down.

The room was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and we liked the room size. Plenty of space. It was nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. I used the pool/hot tub area and it was also clean and well maintained.

Brad and Tina take pride in their property and it shows. The staff was very friendly and any time I asked for something, they were quick to take care of our needs.

If you want a comfortable, clean affordable place to stay, then the Black Hawk should not be missed! You will be made to feel like part of the family. We will be back!

Spending some quality Father / Daughter together time is a great way to spend the first week of October and we're glad you choose the Black Hawk as your place to stay! All of our rooms have reserved parking and we hear from our guests all the time how they appreciate the convenience of being able to park right outside their room. We are happy to hear that you found your room to be clean and well maintained, with plenty of room and comfortable beds. Our staff prides ourselves on being friendly and helpful, because if it wasn't for our guests...we wouldn't have a job. We are family owned and operated since 1945 with Tena and I being 3rd generation. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and we hope that you and your Father can make it back for a return trip to see us in the near future! Have a great fall and holiday season! Sincerely, Brad

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! Our King Whirlpool Suite on the ground floor (rooms #72) is a popular room choice among both our new and repeat guests. The fall is a great time to visit the Dells as it's the off season, both for room rates and crowds in general. We are glad you enjoyed our indoor pool and hot tub, which is open until 11:30 pm each night. We hope to accommodate you again in the near future! Thanks again, Brad
