“Great Price for Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Family atmosphere everytime I am here. Nice indoor/outdoor pool to relax next to. Sleep great each night. Room very clean when arrived. AC unit in room was old and didn't get the room as cool as I would have liked after a long day in the sun, but still kept the room low cool. Location away from all the noise, but only a walk away from downtown shops. Free pass to offsite indoor/outdoor waterpark. Family-owned which provides great service. Very comfortable place to stay for the price. Will go back next year.

Room Tip: About 80 rooms to choose from. See websites with pics.

Hello Steve,...Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and for your continued years of patronage...both are VERY MUCH appreciated! We strive to provide a clean property with friendly customer service and a great night sleep and sounds like you experienced all of the above. We do have spare AC's which we can easily change out in about 10-15 minutes time if any time a room is not being cooled to your liking....and most of all, we are happy to do so. Certain times an AC may be low on freon and need a charge or may be on it's way on the decline. We have upgraded many AC's in recent years as well. Thank you again and have a great fall season. Sincerely, Brad

Not a fancy place, but great location and a bargain price which add up to an excellent value. We were in a separate 2 story building on the second floor. We had an assigned parking space, which is nice. The room was a bit dated, but very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed sitting in the provided chairs outside our room and having a nightcap. I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We enjoyed room #8 on the second level.

We are glad to hear that you found us to be a bargain price which added up to a excellant value. Room #8 is one of our Queen Budget rooms and one of the original rooms built in 1961. We agree that it's a bit dated, especially w/ the bathroom being all original except for the fixtures. We do have major plans for this building in the future to give this entire building a major upgrade. Glad you enjoyed sitting out on the balcony for a night cap and had a comfortable night sleep. Our assigned parking for all rooms is always appreciated by all our guests. Check out our Face Book page now and in the coming weeks for looks of our past history and the future. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review and we hope to see you again in the future! Sincerely, Brad

We love the "retro" feel, the nicely upgraded rooms, laid-back atmosphere and friendly staff. Easy walk to town or just hang out around the pool. If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to all the action, but far enough away to also be a quiet retreat, this is it! Can't wait until we come back next year.

We're glad you like our "retro" feel of a true Wisconsin Dells Classic motel. Many guests tell us this and also that we remind them of times when they were kids and would travel each summer on family vacations with their parents. We look forward to accommodating you again next summer and if you would like to reserve a certain room, please let us know as we have 30 different room types to choose from. Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review and have a great fall season. Sincerely, Brad

My girlfriend and I just stayed here for 3 nights this week. We had a great time here. The room was great, the bed was comfy, house keeping and motel staff was courteous and very friendly. Looking forward to next year. We will definately be staying here again!! Plus it is very close to downtown. No complaints here. Thank you Black Hawk for the excellent Hospitality. See you in 2014

Decided to try this place out after reading the reviews here - I was NOT disappointed!

We stayed in cottage 69. The place was clean (one of my biggest fears when staying in "bargain" places), and up to date. I read a comment by an earlier reviewer stating that the sink in the remodeled bathroom was teeny - and it is!! However, I would rather have two sinks than one, so I appreciate that they used this space rather than leaving it empty. The only gripe, which is absolutely minimal and doesn't affect anything directly, is that there wasn't a dvd player in the main room, but there were ones in each bedroom. We would have appreciated it late at night after our little one went to sleep so that we could watch something somewhere other than the bedroom.

We had an issue one night with the air conditioner in one of the bedrooms. I called the front desk at 9:30p and someone was at my door to fix it in less than five minutes. You won't find that in many places these days!

Overall - this was the perfect spot to stay with my little family. I absolutely will return and spread the word!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! We are happy to hear that you had a great stay with us in cottage #69. We appreciate your thoughts in reference to the small sink in the bathroom and as I stated in a past review...it was added because we had the space. We sincerely apologize for your room not having a DVD player in the front room, as there is suppose to be a total of (3) in the room. This one was not working earlier this summer and was taken out and I forgot to have it replaced when housekeeping alerted me of this. We do have plenty of spare players if one ever has to be replaced or is missing. We look forward to accommodating you and your family in the future and we truly appreciate you spreading the word about us to your family, friends and co-workers. Have a great end of the summer! Sincerely, Brad

Great value; perfect for those on a budget or who don't want to pay the high price for other hotels for similar amenities. Close enough to walk to downtown Dells and many attractions but far enough away to not be disturbed by the busy night life. Workers friendly and willing to offer activity suggestions.

So glad to learn that we left "a great first impression" with you and your spouse in reference to you recent stay with us. We are happy that you found us to be budget friendly, yet still offereing many of the same amenities of the larger chain hotels. We are just a short walk to the downtown shopping district where everyone can find shopping, great restaurants, attractions and the popular Wisconsin River Walk. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review and we hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Brad

Our first time at Black Hawk was great! We had a convenient little room; room 40. We all slept beautifully each night. We loved each pool and the game room. My son and I loved the pool table. Everyone loved Chula Vista. We found a deck above the outdoor pool. Our family loved it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to the pool.
