Our family has stayed at the Black Hawk Motel a half dozen times over the last few years. Each time we go we feel good about our decision to have went there over the Big Box chains. The owners are definitely passionate about what they do. They really want to please their customers and care deeply about their satisfaction. For an older hotel, it is as clean as can be, and the rooms are constantly being remodeled, sections at a time. While it has the old time hotel feel, it doesn't look outdated at all inside the rooms. The price is extremely budget-friendly for those families who watch the $. The indoor pool is always nice and warm, as is the whirlpool. Free passes to Chula Vista are great, but a lot of the time my kids just want to stay and play in the pool on site because it is so nice and warm. My only complaint would be that they are not open even earlier in the spring and later in the fall because as beloved as they are, they would definitely continue to get business during the offseason. Thanks for all the great family memories, can't wait to go back this spring.
