“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Black Hawk! It is in a great location, near town but in a quiet area. We stayed in a cottage for 2 nights and it was much nicer than I thought it would be. Very clean, comfortable, and quiet. A convenient laundry room for guests. The indoor pool was great, the water was the perfect temperature. My sons enjoyed the sauna, also. Unfortunately, the arcade room was stiflingly HOT! Not sure why that was. We opened all the doors and it was still too hot to spend any time in. Our cottage, however, was great! Wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Try a cottage! They are across the street from the hotel rooms, but still close to everything you ne...

We are happy to hear you had a great stay and that you felt your cottage was nicer than you thought it would be. We apologize for our retro arcade being to hot. Housekeeping was not turning the AC on each morning and it's now part of their daily routine each morning during the summer months. We hope to see you again soon and have a great summer!

Room Tip: Several different types of rooms for all purposes, just ask.......

Dean, Thank you so much for your quick review and for choosing the Black Hawk! We are family owned and operated since 1945 and my wife Tena and I are 3rd generations operators of the Black Hawk. I grew up in the business and maybe our boys (ages 9 and 11) will want to take over some day? Thanks again and have a happy 4th. Sincerely, Brad

Booked for two nights based on other reviews at TripAdvisor. The primary motel is the typical drive up to door in "U" pattern around office, pool & small playground. There are some additional units behind and across the street. We stayed in a unit with queen bed, bath, refrig & microwave. The room was of adequate size and clean. Though construction is older the property has updated bathroom, flooring, etc. The owners (Tena and Brad) live on site and were very accommodating. Sleep quality was rated average as in-wall A/C unit had rattle when running. Facility is located at the eastern edge of The Dells and away from the large theme parks and hotels of adjoining Lake Delton, WI in a quiet area. [NOTE: We ate one meal at The American Cafe, located across Broadway St. from Black Hawk, finding it overpriced and with poor food quality & quantity though charging prices beyond what would be expected for even this sit-down establishment.]

Room Tip: If in busy season rooms farthest from the pool would be quieter, or ask for rooms near if easy pool...

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at the motel for his birthday and could not have been happier! We got waterpark passes to TWO locations (Chula Visita and Noah's Ark - - which served us well. A few hours after checking out, Noah's Ark closed due to stormy weather and I called the motel to ask for the Chula Vista passes we did not think we would need, and management was so accommodating - letting us come back to get them!) The motel is VERY clean and staff was so polite/helpful. Families filled the pool area/playground and the location was perfect, as we walked many times to dinner/strip to shop. Prices were extremely reasonable, especially for those on a budget and still wanting to enjoy a nice environment/vacation accommodations.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here just this past weekend and it was perfect! Cheap prices with tickets to noahs ark is well worth it! The location is great too! Staff are very friendly. The pool hours were also great, staying open late fit into our schedule and the indoor hot tube was very relaxing.

Brought a group here for a one might stay as we passed through the area. Check-in took longer than it should have. Rates were extremely reasonable, rooms were clean and comfortable, and we were able to make use of the water park passes.

This is an old-style motel. If interior hallways and spacious lobbies are your thing go elsewhere. They use actual keys.

For the money, we were very satisfied...only wish was that a continental breakfast would be provided.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review as we are happy you found us to be extremely reasonable. Glad the water park option worked out well for your group and now in the summer, we also include Noah's Ark in addition to Chula Vista. We have thoughts of adding a breakfast, however...space is our major concern as we have nowhere to put it w/o taking out a few rooms and that doesn't justify the expense to do so. Thanks again and have a great summer! Sincerely, Brad
