When we go up to the Dells, we always stay at the Blackhawk! (at least when I remember to make reservations in advance! DOH!) The owners and staff and friendly and just plain wonderful! The room is always clean and comfortable with little extra amenities that are always welcome. Even when the place is crowded, the noise level is kept down, which we appreciate! We come to get away and relax, not deal with crazies - we have enough of that at home! The pool and whirlpool are nice after a long day of hiking, sightseeing, and enjoying the Dells "amusements". The motel is in a great location - close to everything. It's our home away from home when in the Dells!
