“Lives up to a great reputation”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

We stayed at the Black Hawk Motel this last Monday night. While we were only there for 1 night, it was clear that this is a delightful place. My wife and son and I had a room with 2 queens and my mother-in-law had what was listed as a budget room. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and it appeared that our budget room was recently remodeled and very nicely decorated.

This is a perfect example of an old-fashioned family motel. Nothing fancy, but you can park your car right in front of your room, take splash in either and indoor or outdoor pool and your kids can have fun in the little arcade.

If you're looking for resort hotels, this isn't for you, but if you're looking for clean, friendly, comfortable and very affordable, the Black Hawk gets my vote for the #1 in Wisconsin Dells.

Hello,
Thanks for taking the time to write a review on your one night stay with us. Sounds like everyone had a great time and made use of our indoor and outdoor pools as well as our retro 80's arcade. Yes, you are correct on your budget room #22 as we just remodeled this room this past winter/spring. Thanks for the compliments on this room which was originally planned to be a storeroom back in 1988 when my parents built our indoor pool and 18 room addition. My Dad took to the tape measure and convinced my Mom that we could make a room out of it and it's become a popular budget room over the years and with this remodel we moved some walls and made it more appealing. Thank you for choosing Black Hawk Motel and visiting the state of Wisconsin. Hope to make it to Seattle some time to see where Starbucks and Grunge Rock were born.

Was planning a weekend getaway last minute and after reading the reviews I thought I would give this place a shot. Glad I did! Got a room with one queen sized bed. Pulling up to the motel I was a little concerned about what the room was going to look like. Was very surprised though! There was new carpet, the bathroom looked brand new and it was very clean. Didn't use any of the pools, but they looked nice. The staff was also very friendly and you get a fun pass to use for bogo on various attractions and restaurants. We only used it twice, but it saved us almost $20. This is definately a hidden gem in the dells and compared to other hotels in the dells you can't beat it. Can't wait to come back!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. Sounds like you had a nice last minute getaway and stayed in either room 17 or 18 and liked it. Sounds like our good ole two story building by the road had you concerned what your room would look like...we're working our way to giving this building a facelift. We give the Free Dells Fun Card to all guests for each room reserved. It's a great savings and sounds like you saved a bit by just using in 2 times. We hope to accommodate you at another time in the near future, hopefully you can make use of our indoor (open until 11:30 pm) and outdoor (open until at least 10 pm) pools at that time. Have a great weekend!

My title for my review says it all! Brad and Tina make you feel at home when you stay at the Black Hawk. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. There are 2 pools one inside and outside. I would highly recommend anyone wanting a family atmosphere to check this place out. I have stayed at the Black Hawk since my children were very young and they are adults now. I now come with my girlfriends and feel very safe too. I wouldn't stay anywhere else and am looking forward to coming back next summer.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and more importantly....THANK YOU...for all your years of continued patronage! We love this business because of the great people that we meet and have gotten to know over the years....just like extended family. It's good to hear that you are able to get away for a "girls trip" each summer and we're happy you continue to choose Black Hawk Motel. Even though all of our rooms are exterior entrance, we're glad to hear that you feel safe when you stay with us. Thanks again for your comments and we look forward to accommodating you again next summer!

My wife and I stayed in the whirlpool suite kingbed w/balcony for two nights,Rm #75. This was our first time at the Black Hawk and loved it. To start the Black Hawk is located in a nice quiet area,only a short 3-block walk to downtown Dells. The room was very clean having a microwave,frig,hairdryer for the wife(a necessity) very comforting king sized bed w/good pillows. The bathroom had great pressure in the shower and plenty of hot water. This was a perfect room for us to relax in for two days. We played cards on the balcony that over looks the pool,also having coffee on it in the morning. The in room whirlpool tub worked great and was very relaxing.The couple who run the motel are very nice. And at check in we were given a Dells card that saved us $27.00 dollars on a jet boat ride. We will definitely come back.
My wife and I would highly recommend The Black Hawk Motel.

Room Tip: Rm #75 is great for a couple looking to relax.

Sounds like you caught up on some much needed R & R. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and liked the popular room #75, which is a whirlpool suite king bed w/ private balcony. This room was orginally 1/2 of our game which my parents built in 1975 and was made then turned into a whirlpool room (along w/ room #76) in 1988. We hope you can return to stay in room #75 in 2012 to see it's planned new look. In the mean time, if you can get away this fall during the week, we always run a jacuzzi blowout special Sunday - Thursday for $69. Thanks for taking the time to write a review and have a great rest of the summer!

My husband put together a spontaneous trip for us to celebrate my graduation from college. We had been to the Dells before with my sister and brother-in-law and stayed at one of those lame resort things with the built in water parks. He chose the Blackhawk because it had a budget room and we did not plan to spend a lot of time in the room anyway. The First thing we noticed that air conditioner was turned on for us when we got there which was nice because it was a hot day. The room was exceptionally clean and the bed was really comfortable. We were impressed with the assigned parking which we did not understand until we started walking around town. I don't know what the other rooms looked like, but I liked the arched ceiling in room 9, and I liked the fact that the hotel had some character and was not a cookie cutter, brand new establishment. We will definately stay again.

First of all...Congratulations on your recent graduation from college and we're glad you choose us as your base camp while visiting the Dells to celebrate! We're glad you had an enjoyable stay and found your queen budget room #9 to be clean and comfortable. We take some heat from time to time on the appearance of our two story building which is the first building (rooms 1-10) that everyone sees when they pull off the main road. We have plans to give it a facelift hopefully in the near future, just not sure what this will all detail. Anyways...we're happy to hear you liked the character of your room and the rest of the property. Sounds like you had a GREAT night sleep as well. Thanks for writing a review and we hope to see you again soon..it you don't want to try a different room, be sure and ask for room #9.

This was a very nice, clean and reasonably priced motel. It was very hot day and I was looking forward to a refreshing outdoor pool. Unfortunately the pool was very warm but I believe that it would be difficult to keep any outdoor pool cool after a long stretch of heat. The indoor pool was actually more refreshing than the outdoor pool.

Very interesting point....usually our indoor pool (open until 11:30 pm or later each night) wins over our outdoor pool on those unwanted rainy summer days, but usually not during the hot summer days. We agree it was brutal last week with the heat index well over 100 and our outdoor pool was hot like bath water...to hot, but it's heated on solar and gas if needed. We're glad you were able to take a refreshing dip in the indoor to cool off. Thanks for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us...we hope to see you again soon and have a great rest of the summer!
