The Black Hawk Hotel
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Cedar Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2014

I love that The Black Hawk is downtown Cedar Falls. Was the perfect place to stay and in walking distance to all the local establishments. Will be staying here again!

Not all rooms have bath tubs in them. The standing shower was perfectly fine for us but if you are wanting a tub, be sure to request a room with one.

We had a great stay at the Black Hawk Hotel. Loved the decor of the room. Bathroom had a great tub for 2. Was great that they had a rubber duck for us to use and take home. Great location close to many restaurants and bars. I would recommend this to my friends and family.

Had the pleasure of staying on a snowy Friday night. Great accommodations and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home!! Stopped for a night cap at the Martini Bar. It was amazing and the waitress was fabulous. We will be back for sure.

We spent a romantic night away and the suite was amazing! It was beautiful and unique, with a whirlpool tub and heated marble floor. The only thing that made this 4 instead of 5 was the street noise. It's right on main street and the noise from the bar, music, and traffic made it difficult to sleep until after the bar closed.

The Black Hawk Hotel is the place to stay when visiting Cedar Falls - This historic inn anchors the downtown area were there are many great places to shop and eat. We stayed in the motor lodge part and loved the contemporary decor. Don't let the word "motor lodge" make you nervous. There is a reason why Cedar Falls downtown area receives many national and state main street awards. We will be coming back. Also, about a 5 minute drive to the UNI campus.

On a cold winter's day, the Blackhawk is a great place to be. Warm and inviting lobby. Cute little martini bar, which I will try next time. Well appointed rooms. Loved the heated bathroom floor. Will be back soon.

We live in the area but decided to stay in Cedar Falls after an evening of dining and partying. We had a corner room with large windows and enjoyed the view of the street activities outside. The room was a larger size with a mini kitchen and breakfast area. The room was quite comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. The hotel is close to a variety of bars, restaurants and shopping venues, all within walking distance. We would certainly recommend the Black Hawk for a little get away weekend, or even one night of celebration. I look forward to the opportunity for a return visit.

Room Tip: The corner room on the second floor was on the larger size which made it more comfortable, and the w...
