“Anniversary Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

This motel does not disappoint- we had a great anniversary getaway. The Balcony King Jacuzzi suite was better than I could have hoped! The bed was extremely comfortable and I am picky and really love my bed at home. The room was clean and warm, temps were not kind for their opening weekend in the Dells! The pictures do not do it justice, I only wish the weather was better so we could have enjoyed the actual balcony area! We both kept saying how awesome it would be in the summer, we are already hoping to bring our teen daughters up this summer for a stay! Thank you!

It sounds like the cold climate didn't stop you from having a great anniversary weekend! I sincerely want to say "Thank You" for choosing to spend your special weekend with us and for taking the time to write us a review. Our whirlpool king balcony suites are two of our most popular rooms and the balcony is always a big hit when the weather permits. Thanks again for joining us on our opening weekend and we look forward to hopefully seeing you this summer when our outdoor pool is crystal clear, surrounded by flowers and our diving board is in full use and Chief Black Hawk is uncovered. BTW...my best friend, Mr. Elsen is a high school teacher in Janesville....perhaps your daughters know him? Thanks again and enjoy the warmer weather..which is finally in the forecast. Kind regards, Brad

Black Hawk Motel is a fabulous throw back to the motels of the '70's. My family and I spent 2 nights and the beds were very comfortable, the rooms extremely clean (yes, I even checked the mattresses), and the staff was very nice. With passes to one of the waterparks included with our stay it was very budget friendly. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

Spent 2 nights at Black Hawk, got a great deal through hotels.ca. Great motel, great area. Staff was good, rooms were small but perfect for the 2 of us as we didn't spend much time in the room. The pool and hot tub were good. We never used our free passes to the watersides as we didn't have enough time. I would recommend this place to anyone that is going to The Dells. My boyfriend and myself also liked the fact that you had a balcony with a few chairs and that u could see your car as it was right outside your room.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and for choosing to stay with us during your visit to the Wisconsin Dells. Sounds like you had one of our budget rooms w/ a Queen bed. During the peak summer months most of our rooms available on the major travel sites w/ one bed are our budget rooms and are a bit smaller...but still have all the amenities of our largest rooms. Check out website for our 30 different room types and detailed room descriptions. We're glad you enjoyed our pools and our indoor is open until 11:30 pm each night and all our rooms have reserved parking right by your door and we're also just a short walk to the downtown Wisconsin Dells area. We hope to accommodate you again this summer and new this year is a complimentary Dells Splash Pass for each room reserved which gets you a buy one get one free admission to Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park, plus other great savings. Thanks again and have a great spring season! Sincerely, Brad

Cold rainy spring day about two years ago, we called to see if we could get a room with just a regular pool instead of the loud, over-priced resorts. Now, other than our winter trips, the BH is the only place we go. Love the cottages, pools, and that you can walk downtown. Add free golf and CV tickets if it rains, and you have a great deal. Place is always full, so book early. We hit the Dells 5 times a year and have stayed just about everywhere, but after 2 nights at the Wilderness this weekend, we are ready for the B H to open!

I believe this is Brian...thanks for taking the time to write us a great review! Sorry we were closed this past weekend and couldn't accommodate you and your family. Definitely have thoughts and plans of opening earlier than April. It's great to hear that you found us on a rainy spring day. Our indoor pool is open until 11:30 pm each night and we'll be having the complimentary Chula Vista Water Park passes again this year as well as the Dells Splash Pass and we hope to have the complimentary golf as well. We look forward to seeing you and your family again this year and have a great rest of the winter! Sincerely, Brad

Me and a couple buddies stayed here on a motorcycle trip. Perfect layover. Very well kept classic motel. Price was awesome and the owner was really nice. Room was good. Everything really clean. What more can you ask for? I'd stay again without hesitation.

Hello Karla,
We love hearing when our guests enjoy our Retro feel. Many guests tell us all the time that they love staying with us because of our Retro feel and they want their children to experiece a vacation the way that Mom and Dad did when they traveled as kids. We are Family Owned and Operated since 1945 and a regular repeat guest once wrote us a review and titled it "Retro meets Modern". Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and we look forward to accommodating you and your family again this summer! King regards, Brad

We've been staying at the Black Hawk for several years now. We had the opportunity to stay at The Wilderness resort with my son's boy scout troop. I was worried that it would make me not want to stay at the Black Hawk anymore. The opposite turned out to be true! The whole time we were staying at the Wilderness, I was wishing we were back at the the Black Hawk where it is quiet, relaxed, not crowded, clean, friendly, and all of the other things you've been reading about. We spend every Father's Day weekend in the Dells with a large group and look forward to staying in our same "wing" of rooms. Every year, The Black Hawk surprises us with something new and improved. Last summer it was remodeled rooms and bathrooms. What will it be in 2013? Can't wait to find out! P.S. We stayed in the house on the property during our last trip in November. It was just as nice as the rest of the Black Hawk.

Bethany, Wow! Thank you for taking the time to write us an awesome review as it is very much appreciated! We appreciate even more all of your continued patronage with all of the Huber family and friends over the years! The Wilderness has some unbelievable waterparks and things to do. We offer a different type of lodging experience as the Black Hawk has been family owned and operated since 1945 and we are trying to preserve a piece of "True Americana" with yearly and modern upgrades. My parents had a few simple rules while running the Black Hawk for 44+ years...."always put money back into the business". This year, as every year we are doing the same. We're glad to hear you enjoyed staying in our two bedroom house recently and we'll look forward to seeing everyone this Father's Day weekend as we have your rooms reserved for you with your own reserved parking spots. Thanks again and have a great rest of the winter. Sincerely, Brad
