Black Hawk Motel
Travel Blogs from Wisconsin Dells
Sept. 17th (Tues) drove to Wisconsin Dells. Hadn't heard of it but was told there would be lots to do and see there. The biggest 'fun and games' town ever seen. Many huge water parks, roller coasters, miniature golf places, Ripley's Believe it or not, etc. Loads and loads of Motels and resorts. A kid's paradise really.
... some extra money and supply themselves with cheap electricity!
Since Wisconsin Dells was only 200 miles from the Morrissey's home, we arrived early in the afternoon, set up and took off to explore a little. The first thing we found was a miniature train that went on a 3 mile round trip. It was only a 15" gauge track and it was run by all volunteers. Fred went to pay for the tickets and he was wearing his ...
Baraboo is one of the holy cities of the clown/circus world and since we were only 2.5. hours from there on Friday, we knew we had to go. We visited Circus World, where our friend Neil clowns, and spent time and money at the International Clown Hall of Fame in downtown Baraboo, which boasts a stunning collection of one-of-a-kind ...

Yep, 13.5 hours from campground one in PA to campground two in WI. 6:35 am to 8 pm. And Ron drove it all! He's my hero! I'm not sure I can maneuver this 40 foot set-up we have and I really doubt Ron wants to see me try. So, unless otherwise noted you can assume Ron is driving and I am in the passenger seat helping to navigate, finding music, checking Facebook, trying to keep the girls occupied, or sleeping. He's tired tonight of course and was super excited ...

Owners were so friendly. Great motel, excellent location. I felt extremely comfortable during my 3 day stay. I was alone and feeling safe was of great importance. Loved seeing the washed comforters hanging out on a line to dry...who does that anymore? Great extra touches!

Historical Traveler Reviews Black Hawk Motel Wisconsin Dells
I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had read good reviews here so decided to give this motel a try for our 5 nights in the Dells. We were very impressed!! Now, there's no water park like some of the fancy, expensive hotels; but for a very reasonable price we had an extremely clean room and very pleasant stay. First, this was probably the cleanest motel/hotel that we've ever stayed in (and we've been in a lot). We were in Room 58 which is an end room, and it was very quiet. We liked having the little table and chairs right outside the door so we could sit and talk when the kids were sleeping...never bothered by any bugs/mosquitoes outside either. Indoor pool was nice with a very hot, hot tub. There was also a sauna which we didn't use. On our last day we discovered that there was a 2nd hot tub and sauna over in the office building, but we never had time to check them out. There was also a nice outdoor pool and a little kiddie pool.
I just got back from a short trip to the Dells. I didn't know what to expect from the Black Hawk, but I must say that it was everything I have read about. The rooms are spacious and sparkling clean. The only problem I had was a miscount when I turned my towels in. They claimed I only turned in three when I am sure it was four. I don't know what to expect from that since I just arrived home. This little hotel is off the beaten path and was sooo comfortable I didn't want to leave. I had two adjoining rooms and I couldn't even hear my two teens in the other room. The tv's had large screens, microwave and little refrigerator. All rooms except for the kitchenettes were just outside your door. Downtown wasn't close enough for me to walk to, but my teens took off and didn't mind the walk at all. I plan on staying there again next summer.
BlackHawk motel, nice & clean
The BlackHawk was a nice ma & pa place to stay. It's not fancy, but it's very clean and the owners treat their guest very well. The motel accidently booked me in a room that was already booked so they called me the next day to ask if it was ok to up grade me to a bigger two bedroom room. I was pleased with the upgrade. Our kitchenette was 70's style, but the kitchen was fully equiped with everything one would need to cook a full meal. I would stay there again.
My wife and I stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend. We planned our trip at the last minute and finding a reasonable rate on a Holiday weekend wasn't easy. We found this little "Mom and Pop" place on the internet and booked a room. We were skeptical at first, but once we arrived we were greated with a very friendly and helpful staff. The room (single room with king size bed on upper floor, room 7 to be exact) was a typical motel room with refridgerator and microwave. What caught our eye though was the cleanliness. I don't know if this was the opening weekend for them or not, but this room was immaculately clean. In places where you would typically find dust in a 3, 4, or 5 star hotel there was none! It was somewhat different in the fact that they used liquid body wash in the bathroom and shower as opposed to bar soaps and shampoo, but it worked for us. This place was older but very well maintained. The upper balcony (as well as all other rooms) had lawn chairs and a little table outside the room, ideal for relaxing at the end of the day. This may not be the place for someone looking for all the perks of other places (continental breakfast, shampoo and conditioner, writing tablets, etc.) but if your looking for a nice clean room to sleep in at night and maybe watch a little TV (almost 100 channels) this is the place. Nice restaurant a block away (Family Chef) with full line menu. They also had both an indoor and an outdoor pool, as well as assigned parking at your door. I will make it a point to stay here again.
This hotel was immaculate and the staff was very nice and made checking in a breeze. They even got me in two hours early. It was easy to make reservations and I would definately pick this hotel first to stay in next time I visit the dells.
My husband and I stayed at the Black Hawk Motel and thought it was well kept, clean, and very efficient. The motel owner was very friendly and accomodating. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely stay there again.
Great Place at a Great Price
I love this place. I've stayed 4 times now and will continue to do so for all future Wis Dells trips. The place is really clean and affordable; two swimming pools!!! Well worth the price.
Me and my husband went there last year and from the pictures I thought that it wouldn't be the best place, but I also didn't want to spend alot of $$ for a hotel.. We got there and it was very nice and clean.. The pool ( indoor and outdoor) was very nice especially the hot tub.. The game room is small but was nice, and the staff was especially nice to us. I would recomend this hotel to anyone, even with people who have children..
Family big or small
family owned forever.my parents took me .now i take my kids.not the biggest but clean good service and good prices.if you want the dells and dont think u can afford it.bring your own food and cook on the grills or in kitchenettes will enjoy no doubt
Loved this place
We stayed here for 3 nights last year the place was very clean, the people were very friendly. Will for sure go back again in the summer.
