“We keep coming back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2009

We stay at the Blackhawk every year in August for a vacation with our parents/siblings and children. It is always clean, the staff is always friendly and because the price is so affordable we are able to do more activities in the Dells. We have been staying at the Blackhawk now for over 18 years and we love it! I would recommend this motel to anyone! We love it!

I've stayed in a lot of hotels/motels over the years and The Black Hawk Motel is one of finest. Clearn, spacious, indoor and outdoor heated pools with slides, hot hot tub, fine location, excellent service and affordable! The Wisconsin Dells has a lot of attractions and is a great famly place. One reason why I consider returning to Wisconsin Dells for a family vacation is that I know that I can stay at the Black Hawk. I will be staying again in July 2009 while on holiday.

Ive stayed at the black hawk twice now,(in aug 2006 and aug 2008), its cheap, comfortable, there's microwaves and mini-fridges in all the rooms. The first time i was there, i stayed in the queen poolside room,the room was really small and smelled like my grandpa, i dont know what that was about, but the 2nd time, we stayed in the queen or king ( i dont remember which) budget room, which is not poolside. the room was bigger and not stinky this time, we added an extra night onto our stay which the staff happily accomodated. the pools/hot tub/sauna are nice. the motel is not on the main strip-so its quiet and not chaotic like the rest of the dells in summer-but is within walking distance of downtown and only a short drive to the main attractions anyway. my boyfriend (he loves it too) and i cant wait to go back to the dells and stay at the black hawk again

When we decided to visit Wisconsin Dells, I checked TripAdvisor - and was so glad I did! The Black Hawk Motel, highly praised for cleanliness and old-fashioned service, was our choice because of the reviews on this site, and we had an even more excellent vacation because of it.
We stayed in a queen whirlpool suite, which turned out to be one of a row of small freestanding cinderblock rooms. Having a tiny yet well equipped kitchen made the room an excellent bargain, as we were able to save by having some of our meals at "home." Recently replaced mattresses, while not luxurious, were comfortable, and linens were clean and fresh. On days that we had a "do not disturb" sign out, we received a call in the afternoon asking if we wanted the room serviced, extra towels, or anything else. We haven't received that level of personalized service except at 4 & 5 star hotels with club or concierge service.
Although definitely not luxury class, the cleanliness and friendliness more than make the Black Hawk an excellent place to enjoy the Wisconsin Dells.

  • Liked — Clean! and enough hot water to fill the hot tub.
  • Disliked — Happy children early in the morning enjoying the playground

My boyfriend and I like to come up to the Dells in the off-season to get the best rates and miss the crowd. We just discovered Black Hawk this year and loved it!! They have great off-season rates. The rooms are comfortable and roomy with great beds. The pool is warm and has a fun slide too! When we are looking for hotels there are a few key things we like to have, they include, indoor pool, microwave and fridge, and free WiFi. The Black Hawk had all three!! We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to young couples or anybody looking to get away for a long weekend and not spend a lot of money.

Discovered this motel through tripadvisor and gave it a try because we liked the jacuzzi in the room and the low price. Upon driving up to the motel, we were a little frightened because it seemed a bit "old" so we were a little worried. Once we got to the room (number 68) we were shocked at how awesome the room was. Inside the room, it felt like a hotel. Our room was a separate miniature home/apartment that was not connected to other rooms. It was excellent! Mini fridge, relaxing jacuzzi and mirrors on the ceiling above the bed. It was a great little second honeymoon for my husband and I. AND it had two additional beds in an adjoining room so it is perfect for families and/or couples that want a romantic getaway. We will definitely stay here again and request the same room. The indoor pool was big and since the motel wasn't that busy, we had it to ourselves which was nice. We recommend this motel if you want a good price, away from the commercialized strip and a little romance in an unsuspecting place.

We stayed at the Black Hawk 10/9 - 10/11 for a fall weekend getaway. We got a great rate for our stay (plus AAA too) since it's the end of the season. We travel around a lot and prefer to spend our time sight seeing rather than in the room. Our main requirements of a room is that it is reasonably priced, clean, quiet, a few amenities and has a very clean bathroom. The room met all our needs! We're in our 40's and the room style reminded us of the motels we stayed at as kids with our parents - this was a good thing! The room had amenities like a hair dryer, fridge and microwave, table & chairs - and plenty of room to move around. The pillows were a bit low & smushed for us (probably from much use after all summer long), but a quick trip to the office and we were provided with a couple more nice fluffy ones. The outdoor pool is closed but the indoor pool and jacuzzi were very nice and we met a lot of nice people. The mangement was very friendly and accomodating. They even provided a 2 for 1 card for Dells attractions and restuarants (and we used it!) We head to the Dells every year and will definitely stay here again!
