“Another Good Review for the Black Hawk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2011

Stayed at the Black Hawk Motel one night, Sept. 7, 2011. We have stayed here several times over the years, even before TripAdvisor, so we knew what to expect. The Black Hawk is an older property, very well maintained, and very clean. It is another of what I call classic Dells motels, like the Indian Trail, or Monaco out on the strip.

We stayed in room #30, a handicapped room with a king size bed. (We didn't ask for a handicapped room but was given one anyway.) The room was good sized, with a large bathroom with lots of handles to accommodate handicapped individuals. There was a refrigerator and microwave oven in the room. There was a newer widescreen TV, but no HD programming provided, so why bother? The free Wi-Fi worked fine. The bed was comfortable, and the room was spotlessly clean.

The property has indoor and outdoor pools, with several hot tubs, a game room, and a nice playground for children. At check in, we were given a Dell Fun Card, which has lots of discounts for area attractions and restaurants.

The Black Hawk is in a residential area away from the strip and downtown. The location is quiet, but you will have to drive to all attractions and restaurants. The owners are attentive and helpful, and live onsite. To sum up, the Black Hawk is a well run, clean older property, and a good value if you are not looking to stay at a waterpark resort.

Room Tip: Check the Black Hawk website for room descriptions and property map, lots of options avialable.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to stay at Black Hawk Motel & loved it. It is very clean and clearly well cared for. The whole property is welcoming and we had the best visit. Our room was spotless, the balcony very nice. We would recommend this to anyone going to Wisconsin Dells. There may be larger motels but none will be this clean and wholesome.

This was a wonderful place to stay in the Dells. Basic motel without all the water park bells and whistles, but very comfortable and affordable. A couple of blocks from downtown, so away from all the lights and noise. People were friendly, room was spotless and smelled clean (no musty damp smells), beds were extremely comfortable. Had a refrig and MW and extra "bar" sink. Park right in front of the door. Chairs outside of your room to sit and relax. Highly recommend this motel to everyone. When we go back, we'll stay there again!

The Black Hawk provided my wife and I a fantastic value for an overnight stay in the dells. We rented a whirlpool room with a queen bed. I chose this motel because of the price and how close it is to the shops. When we checke in, the clerk was extremely friendly and explained where everything was located. After reading some of the other reviews, I expected the room to be extremely dated. Surprisingly, the room did not have that feel at all. The decor was basic, but tasteful. Everything was neat, clean, and organized. I have minor complaints about the room, including the TV, which I found to be small and far away from the bed, and the smallish bathroom.

Neither my wife nor myself used the pools or hottub, but we did go take a look at both. They appeared to be well maintained. The arcade was an amusing throwback to 1980's videogames.

Overall, I found the Black Hawk to provide exeptional value. If you are seeing the Dells on a budget, or if the frills that come with big budget water park resorts aren't that important, the Black Hawk is a great choice.

We stopped at Black Hawk on the way back from South Dakota. We reserved a family size room - which had 3 queen beds. Our children were thrilled!! The room was spacious and exceptionally clean. The beds were quite comfortable and the rooms were very quiet. A thunderstorm rolled through about 5 am and the kids never heard a thing, and our neighbors had a small child and were gone by the time we got up, but we never heard them at all!

The pools were heated and clean. It made swimming in the dark that much more memorable and fun. My children also liked the fact that it was "old school" park at your door. They liked the lawn chairs to sit outside your room and watch the world go by. In the world of large water park hotels, this place was a very welcome retreat.

It is on the other end of the town - far enough away to get away from all the noise and commotion. We would definitely stay here again!

This place blows me away! This is a family owned motel, yet it is very evident that the ownership is committed to putting profits back in to the place. It's emaculately clean, the service is better than any of the big money resorts, and it's constantly getting updated. There are apparently HUNDREDS of families who have been coming here for generations. Oh, and it's really quiet too!

This was our second trip of many more to come. The place is spotless. The beds are comfortable. We loved the pools. My 8 and 11 year old grand daughters loved both pools and the diving board. We had to cancel an earlier visit planned for this summer and we were not charged the cancellation fee. The place is just great The owners and staff are all very friendly and helpful. Again can't wait to return.
