“Liked this place better than the resorts!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

My boyfriend and I have both been to the Dells before but stayed at resort hotels and weren't totally satisfied. When we decided to plan a getaway trip together we almost made the mistake of staying at a resort again. We ended up choosing Black Hawk Motel based off of the awesome reviews we saw. We definitely agree that this place is great! The staff was very accommodating and very welcoming. Our room was very clean and up to date (King whirlpool suite). The shower was amazing, the bed was unbelievably comfortable, and the room was overall great! We also loved the location, only a few blocks from downtown. We were able to have a great time and not drive all over mankind. We will definitely be going back to this place when we take future trips to the dells!

Hello Katie...it makes our day when a guest tells us that they enjoyed their stay at the Black Hawk Motel better than the large resorts! We are glad that you loved your room and especially the Sealy King bed and the custom tiled walk in shower. We agree that the shower in your room is awesome....we love the colors, glass accent tiles, tiled seat and glass tiled ceiling. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and listening to the rest of the Trip Advisor community and choosing us based off of reviews that you read. I apologize again for the roofers that started a bit early on your day of check out when we were replacing the roof on your room. Thanks again and we look forward to accommodating you again in the future. Have a great summer! Sincerely, Brad

I've been staying at the Black Hawk every year that I've been going to Automotion. Always friendly there. Rooms are very clean, refrigerator, microwave, dvr etc. This year my wife found another girl to work for her so she could come along. It was her first year. She really liked staying there. She didn't expect indoor pool and all the other things Black Hawk has to offer! Booked for next year already. The other guest are friendly also. It's nice to be able to sit in lawn chairs outside your room. Another nice thing is you can walk a few blocks and you're downtown to do some shopping. Brad also puts some stories about growing up at the Black Hawk that are interesting on facebook.

Room Tip: I like room 42.

Paying for college is hard enough, so trying to find a cheap place to stay on vacation is a must for my boyfriend and I. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to try the Black Hawk Motel. We were both blown away by the quality of our experience!

We reserved a "Motel Queen Bed - Budget" room - which was very well priced - and received with our stay multiple coupons for attractions and restaurants in the area and passes to the Chula Vista waterpark. The woman running the office was very welcoming! Our room was EXTREMELY clean! The bed was comfortable and well made, the sink area was well kept, and the bathroom was spotless. Our room also had a flat screen tv, dvd player, mini fridge, and microwave, which were nice additions. The coupons aided us in purchasing dinner that night, and Chula Vista's waterpark was a great way to spend time in the water. There are exciting rides for both younger and older adults, and kiddie areas as well! Black Hawk is also a short walking distance from the downtown Dells, where we spent part of our day visiting shops and strolling along the riverwalk.

Overall, we would both recommend Black Hawk to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the Dells - definitely a great value for a fun and relaxing vacation!

We really liked the Black Hawk, super nice staff, so were the other patrons.
We had a top story, corner room, that had an odd smell, but that aside, it was great.
Good view, small and cozy, not modern exactly, but cool.
Big, open-able windows, firm bed.
There was even a bottle opener mounted on the bathroom door jamb.

Had a thunder storm in the night, and this was the perfect room for it.
We got to hear and see it all.

We are happy to hear that we provided you with a friendly and comfortable stay with your recent visit to the Wisconsin Dells area! We apologize for the funky smell in your room. I did check it out after reading your review...may have been from a prior guest cooking something authentic in the microwave? We agree that the roof in your room is really cool and was cutting edge back in the 1961. It's definitely not modern, but some guests love this retro building. We do have major plans for it in the future. Thanks so much for staying with us and writing us a review...and also for your tip! During the offseason...the next forecasted thunderstorm...I am going to try and sleep in one of these budget rooms so I can hear the sounds of a great thunderstorm...makes for a outstanding night of sleep!

We've stayed here several times. We have always gotten the queen/twin room. It's perfect for our family of 3. It is also located away from the main area by pool so it is quieter. We prefer the one on the lower end because the stairs and closet give you more shade. So if sun is what you want, that room is probably not for you. There are several more to choose from though. This room has a half tub. It isn't quite a shower stall because it is higher like a tub, however, it is only half the size of a normal one. The bathroom door is also one of those slide into the wall kinds because the room is smaller than the others at the motel. It does include a microwave and mini fridge and TV with cable. The office has coffee, if you need some. The pools are really nice. My family preferred the indoor one. It wasn't as busy as the outdoor one. The game room is nice too. They have "old school" games from the 80's. This motel is extremely clean. We never had a problem with dirty linen or a dirty bathroom. The owners are very nice and accommodating. They take pride in their motel and treat you like family. In fact, my mother and her sisters have been coming to Black Hawk since the 50's-60's. Unfortunately, this year I waited too long and now they are booked up. Lesson learned....book months in advance for the summer. #1rating...of course they are going to fill up fast. Book here and you won't have any regrets. A lot less expensive than the bigger water parks PLUS you get a FREE pass to Chula Vista. So it's a win win. I guarantee you that you will be wasting your money by booking elsewhere. This place has it ALL.

Room Tip: If you are parents with only one child....try the queen/twin room. It will save you compared to the...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a detailed review and for your continued patronage over the years! We are happy to hear that you and your family are comfortable in one of our budget room types...known as a Queen and Twin. This is a great room choice for families of three or two guests who want two beds and want to stay on a budget at the same time. The 1/2 tub in this room is sometimes alot of fun for families that have a toddler when it comes to bath time at night. We are family owned and operated since 1945 and do in fact take great pride in our property and really enjoy seeing familiar faces each year and meeting new ones as well. We are sorry to hear that we are unable to accommodate you this year...please send over an email or give me a call and I'll see if we can get you in or add you to our waiting list. We just added online reservations via our website and we expect to be booking fast for the 2014 season. Please let me know if you would like me to hold you any specific dates. Thanks again and have a great summer! Sincerely, Brad

After reading the tripadvisor reviews we decided to stay here for our first family Dells trip. It was a very good call. We rented a room with a separate bedroom for the kids. It kept peace in the family and gave everyone that little extra downtime needed. The room was updated and had the conveniences we needed. The parking right in front of our room was terrific and we enjoyed talking to other guests. Both pool areas were well kept and we really enjoyed the outdoor pool. The mixture of vintage and updates worked well for us and we have recommended the Black Hawk to others. There is a nice convenience store in close walking distance and has easy access especially by the side streets to the downtown parking and stores. Very happy.

Room Tip: They have lots of options, better to call and talk to them. They were very helpful. Our kids apprec...

Hello Erik, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review, your patronage and for recommending Black Hawk Motel! All are very much appreciated and we hope to accommodate you and your family on your next family vacation to the Wisconsin Dells area. Our two bedroom units are some of our most popular of our 30 different room types. Two bedroom units are especially appreciated when getting the kids ready for bed after a long day of fun. My family has also found this to be helpful when traveling. We're glad to hear that you feel our vintage and modern touches blend well together. Thanks again and have a great summer! Sincerely, Brad

This places was awesome! My husband and I came out there for our 1 year anniversary (5/12/13). We stayed 3 nights and it was great! On arrival, Angie, who was working the front desk was very friendly and informative. She showed us some of the good attractions in the area (that were open, as it was "off" season.) We stayed in the hot tub suite and it was very private. Our room was on the 2nd floor and we had a private access. Very cool. The king size bed was very comfortable and clean everyday. Above the bed was a mirror which I thought was kind of strange, but I guess that's why it's the "honeymoon" suite, It's weird rolling over and seeing yourself. The bathroom was updated and very clean. The hot tub was spotless and very spacious. I know I read a couple reviews that people complained about the water temp not staying hot, this was not the case for us. It took a bit at first to turn hot, but after that it got hot and stayed hot the whole time. Nice flat screen tv in the room. A pull out couch, a table and 2 chairs. Private Balcony, which is connected to another one, but still private and exclusive to our room. Central Heat, but the A/C was a unit in the wall. Unfortunately while we were there the A/C wasn't really used as it was cold. We did turn it on just to test it out and it worked great. Mini Fridge and microwave in the room. It even had a kitchen sink. We had a call every day asking if we needed maid service. We did and every time we got back to the room it was clean and had fresh linens and towels. The indoor pool (didn't use outdoor cuz of the cold and it wasn't open) was a lot of fun, it has a slide, which is probably made mostly for kids, but my hubby couldnt resist going down it a few times, lol. Sauna and hot tub whirlpool were nice too. Old school arcade attached to the pool. On check out the owner Brad and his wife checked us out and they were also very friendly, greeted us with smiles and thanked us for staying. We told them we would be back. They were doing some construction of some of the rooms across from us so I can imagine they will look great when finished. For the price this is a can't beat Motel. There are other hotels in there area that are connected to waterparks, but they are no where near the quality of this place. Black Hawk also gives you FREE passes to the Chula Vista waterpark, a FREE splash pass which gives you BOGOs on many attractions, PLUS they give you a coupon for 25% off some other attractions. You honestly can't go wrong with this diamond in the rough. Thank You Black Hawk for making our anniversary amazing.

Room Tip: There is no indoor access to the pool.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write us a detailed review! We are delighted to hear that you truly enjoyed your stay and and found our customer service from check in to check out to be exceptional. Our King Bed Whirlpool Balcony Suites are both newly remodeled and some of our most popular room types. All of our whirlpool rooms do have mirrored walls and ceiling above the bed. It's great to hear that your hubby tried out our poolslide as we do not have a sign that reads "kids only". Our indoor pool area and retro arcade is open until 11:30 each night. Thanks again for your patronage and your detailed review and we hope to accommodate you again in the near future! Sincerely, Brad
