I have been to the dells many times with my family, extended family, and family friends multiple times while growing up and mostly stayed at big motels with water parks, and this was my first time coming with my own family.
My husband and I brought our 3 girls (6 year old and two 2 year olds) and was nervous because I relied on all the reviews on tripadvisor, and I am SO GLAD I did so. The staff (office and cleaners) were very friendly and the ENTIRE place was extremely clean. They placed us in room 48 or 49 (I think) at the end in the corner and also 71, also end and corner. Which was awesome because we have 3 kids and they are loud I did not want to disturb any more other guest than I had to. We had 2 different rooms because I booked it two days before, and there was no problem, they even offered to move our luggage so we could enjoy the day with FREE included waterpark passes at chula vista and Noah's ark.
Black hawk motel has a lot to offer and it's in the perfect area, very close to the gas station, grocery store, park with great playground, and 10 minute walk (which took us about 45 minutes because the area is beautiful) to downtown dells.
The playground at the motel is separated into 4 sections and was very clean, up to date, and they have rubber chips, not woodchips on the ground which was another plus!.. the pools were clean.. bathroom was very clean, kitchenette was clean and appliances included were clean.. with 3 young children I look for cleanliness and this place absolutely exceeded my expectations in every way.
I am so glad I found a great place my whole family loves. We are definitely coming every summer.
