Black Hawk Motel is not fancy from first appearances, with a small unimposing lobby and simple parking outside rooms. Check-in, however, was quick and friendly. The rooms are spotless (as clean as hotels get!) and nicely outfitted with coffee maker, refrigerator, TV, microwave, and hair dryer. Free WIFI. Good lighting and good shower. Nice to have extra sink. Comfortable beds... More

The problem w/ the remote most likely has to do with the digital signal boxes for each TV. It's been a new challenge this year w/ keeping up with the trouble... More
