Our newest lodging experience directly behind The Historic BlackHawk Hotel is for the traveler who enjoys a more modern room setting. The fifteen completely-renovated rooms are furnished with sleek platform king beds, "mod" lighting and furniture, wall-mount flat-screen TVs, "retro" look carpet and bedding, as well as cable TV, high-speed wireless internet capability and free parking. Each "motor lodge" guest will enjoy the same amenities of the hotel including business center and fitness facilities located in hotel building.
The Blackhawk Hotel, in Cedar Falls Iowa, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is the oldest continuously-operating hotel site in Iowa and is conveniently located in historic downtown Cedar Falls.
During the renovation of the Blackhawk we have taken great pains to retain the historic character of the original building while offering the modern conveniences of a refined hotel. Motels just don’t have the location nor offer the ambience of a true “Hotel”.
From the time you enter the lobby of the Blackhawk Hotel you instantly become comfortable with the surroundings and feel transported into a past time when the world moved slower and life was less complex. Rest assured though, we have spent over a million dollars in renovations to assure your personal satisfaction and a true “historic hotel” experience.
