“Wi Dells stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We booked our stay at Black Hawk thru trivago site; Got the best price with Expedia. We were very happy with our choice. Room 14 was clean well maintained. It had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot and flat screen TV. The queen size bed was very comfortable. The property has a heated indoor pool and hot tub and sauna that we used. all were great. The outdoor pool was not filled as season was too cold yet. This place is not close to walk to down town, but is a short drive to the busy tourist attractions. We were surprised how busy this place filled as it's wasn't even Memorial weekend yet! The staff was very friendly and would stay here again.

Room Tip: lower numbers are on ground level and parking assigned right in front of your room!

Thanks so much so taking the time to write us a review! Room #14 is one of our popular Queen Poolside rooms and has been a popular room choice for years. We are gratified that you enjoyed your stay with us and happy to hear you appreciated our friendly staff. Downtown Wisconsin Dells is about a 10 minute walk as we are located on the east end of downtown, about 6 blocks from the center of downtown. We hope to see you again sometime soon and have a great day! Sincerely, Brad

Hello Rita and Jim, Thank you so much for listening to the Trip Advisor community, taking the time to write us a review and ultimately choosing The Black Hawk! All we can say is WOW! An experienced traveler like Jim to give us a compliment of being a top 5 hotel / motel out of over 4,000 is a compliment that we are very gratified to hear. I am sure that Jim could write a book someday about everything that we has seen in his 40 years of travel. We wish you a great summer this season in the Dells! Please support this guests new leather store located in downtown Dells, just east of the Carr Valley Cheese. Sincerely, Brad

We stayed in a 3 Queen room with our Girl Scout troop. (Room 21) It was great. The room came with a small fridge and microwave which helped us save on meals. There were 2 beds in the backroom where the girls stayed and had their own TV. My co-leader and I stayed in the front room and had a tv there as well. The bathroom sink was outside the shower/toilet which when traveling with 4 teen girls is a great timesaver! We also had access to coin laundry and ice in the common area. Room was clean and updated recently --- we were very happy with the accommodations and staff was very friendly. Our family stays in the Dells for sports tournaments during the winter and my only disappointment was to find they are a more seasonal facility and closed for the winter. I recommend Blackhawk, though, as a motel where you definitely get your money's worth! Will be back!

Room Tip: Check out their website for descriptions. Also I emailed some questions and the staff responded wit...

We are happy to hear that you choose the Black Hawk for your base camp while in the Dells for a sporting event! We do get many requests for reservations in the winter months, however we do choose at this time to recharge our batteries and prepare for the upcoming season...as we are currently closed from November thru all of February. We have thoughts of opening in March as we all are getting spring fever. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and we look forward to seeing you in the future. Best Regards, Brad

Our Stay Was Great! We Loved It and Surely Will Stay Again. This Motel Renovated The Rooms, They Are Beautifully Done! We Had The Whirlpool Suite, Wow It Was Awesome! The Management Was Extremely Friendly & Helpful. Not To Mention, We Have Never Stayed At A Motel Like This, We Were So Impressed By How Clean Everything Was. Keep Up The Great Work! Everything About This Property Was Way Above Our Expectations. Plus It's a Short Walk To Downtown.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. This season we are renovating 16 more rooms and we now add custom tiled entry ways to all renovated rooms. Many of our rooms have this and our good friend Chet "The Tile Guy", continues to impress us with his detailed work and unique designs. It gratifies us that you have never stayed in a motel like us before and you really enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Brad

The Wisconsin Dells does not have many original hotels or choices of lodging anymore unless you like to stay at large resorts. This motel is a gem! My buddy and I stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a budget queen room the first night and then upgraded to a queen kitchenette/whirlpool suite the 2nd night. Both rooms were amazing. Very clean and well kept. Each room also includes a dvd player as well. The indoor pool was very warm and the hot tub was very warm. We enjoyed the sauna as well. They even had a game room with nostalgic games! The owners of this motel take great pride in their business! I myself am a manager of a Hilton property and know the demands and toll it can take on someone, but these guys do an amazing job! Keep up the good work and we hope to visit again soon!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and for supporting our family owned business. We are family and owned and operated since 1945 and my wife Tena and I are 3rd generation owners. We very much appreciate your comments. As you very well know, the daily and nightly grind of running a property is no small task. However, my Mother told myself and my siblings that if the job you choose is not in your heart, get out of it. Myself, being born and raised in this business, I like to say it's in my blood. One of the many delights of the hospitality business is seeing family and friends make lasting memories, and this makes our job very rewarding. We hope to see you again soon and have a great summer season at your Hilton property. Best Regards, Brad

The motel is in a great location walking distance to downtown. The motel is great you get to park right in front of your room. We were in the Dells for my sons basketball teams tourney and all the rooms in our party were next to each other. The room we stayed in was just renovated. Our room had a fridge and microwave and was plenty big enough.
Would come back for sure. The kids visited Chula Vista with the free water park passes.

Room Tip: Great location to downtown.

Doug, Thanks so much for your review and for choosing to stay at the Black Hawk! Many of our rooms are newly renovated, and we have a total of 16 that we have renovated this offseason. It's great to hear the kids enjoyed Chula Vista's Indoor Water Park. We hope to see you and your family again this summer, when all registered guests receive free, unlimited Chula Vista Indoor and Outdoor Waterparks, as well as Noah's Ark - America's Largest Water Park. Best Regards,
Brad
