“Great Beds, big rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2010

We have stayed at Black Hawk Motel for many years in early June. It is a great hotel if you are looking for good matresses! We have tried many hotels in the Dells area and these are the most comfortable matresses we have found. We are a family with 6 children so we need a bigger room. The Black Hawk has a room with a seperate bedroom with 2 beds and a room with 1 bed. This is nice for us. They also have a larger room with 4 beds but it has been rented every time we came. The pool is nice and close to the rooms. The hot tub in the seperate room is very hot. It is a nice relaxing Motel away from the busyness of the main strip. The free golf was a great perk this year for my husband..

Stayed June 2010, traveled with family

Thank you for your comments, we hope to accommodate you and your family again in the near future. We'll be offering the free unlimited par three golf again this year for all registered guests. The course is Pinecrest Par 3 Golf, just a short 3 mile drive out of town. Last summer we had many positive comments about this course, although it's a short course, we heard that the greens are quite a challenge, a good way to work on your short game.

Like most others, I was suprised that the rooms were actually quite decent and even kind of nice for the price. That said, I am suprised as well that the hotel is rated #1 for Wisconsin Dells. It is definitely not a #1 hotel, but my guess is that the value is close to #1. I was a bit nervous driving into the motel as it looks run down and a bit sketchy. The room was suprisingly nice however. Being that you go to Wisconsin Dells to spend time at the parks and other things, I think it is a great place to stay. Like I said, the rooms are pretty great, especially for the price, as long as you don't mind the rest of the premise. I ranked the hotel 3/5 only with hesitation from the lobby, pool, other guests, but as far as value, it is a 5/5.

Thanks for your comments, we're glad that you were surprised while staying with us. We always try to remodel rooms each year from floor to ceiling and have plans in the near future to do a major remodel on our front building close to the road. These are some of our budget rooms and the first building that people see when getting off the highway, however they are just as clean as all of our rooms and have all the amentiies and the Sealy Encore Plush beds. Tripadvisor looks at many areas when ranking places to stay and we do offer a great value, other great places to stay such as Cedar Lodge, and Rhapsody Resort offer great accommdations with a waterfront view, and I assume a higher nightly room rate. We are a family owned business and our lobby/office is attached to our home, it's not a elaborate lobby, but it functions well. Guests will see our fireplace made of Georgia Marble, this is the same fireplace that Santa use to come down when I was a little boy.
Thanks again for your comments and we hope to accommodate you in the near future.

Only stayed here one night, but very pleasant. Room was clean, especially bathroom, sauna was hot & relaxing. Has an indoor & outdoor pool. Close to downtown action, but not in it. Would have stayed here longer. Good price to value.

We spent 4 nights at the Black Hawk Motel. I was a little unsure when I made the reservations, since I knew it was an older hotel, but the room we stayed in had all been re-done recently. The room and bathroom were clean, had a bit of a new carpet smell, but at least that meant the carpet was clean and new. It was really handy to have a mini fridge and microwave in the room, we ended up just eating breakfast in our room, easier than going somewhere with our kid. The room we had was a little on the small side, but it worked fine for us, with 2 adults, 1 kid. Friendly service...will be back.

We attended the Polish festival, but decided to stay at the Black Hawk Motel instead of Mt Olympus, where the event was. We are so glad we did, it was a great value and we were able to do more with the money we saved. The service was great! Nice people!

Thanks for your comments! We give all guests the Free Dells Fun card for each room reserved, this is a great way to save on attractions and restaurants. The fun card has a buy one get one free for the Dells Boat tours, so use it just once and it will save about $18.00+, and the card is good thru the end of the year! Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!

The great reviews for Black Hawk are all true! Instead of repeating all the great things that have already been written, I'll just say "read the great reviews here, and I agree with all of them"! My husband and I chose the Wisconsin Dells for our 25th wedding anniversary vacation because we wanted something that was a scenic getaway while being not more than a day's drive from Chicago...and we wanted to stay at a place that had a "small-town family feel" to it, not a fancy-dancy water park place. Brad and Tena are wonderful hosts and they run a well-maintained hotel with lots of "old school charm". This was our first-ever trip to the Dells, and we are already planning to go back to the Black Hawk the first Spring month that the Black Hawk starts their Spring season.

For the price, this place is incredible. Couldn't ask for more. Room and grounds were immaculate. Pools and hot tubs were very clean and well maintained.
