We traveled to Cedar Falls, IA, last weekend for a friends wedding and were pleasantly shocked at how cool a town it is! At our friends suggestion we stayed at the Black Hawk Hotel in the historic district. We were amazed. First, district was full of great shops, restaurants, bars, and a very cool performance theatre. Yea, I know, every...

The Black Hawk Hotel was a unique and charming place to stay. Dating back to 1853, with the current building dating back to 1914, they have managed to make time stand still from that era, but still provide all the modern amenities. It is like a quaint B&B, but it is a hotel. Antiques provide beds, cabinets, chairs and lamps...

Very nice rooms with high ceilings​. Our room had a whirlpool and a fridge. Hotel has an antique feel. It's located right on main street. They have a free breakfast but there's not much to choose from, a better selection would have made it a perfect stay.

Although the hotel itself was a beautiful historic building filled with antiques and charm, we ended up moving to a different hotel for the second night of our stay due to the late-night noise coming from downtown establishments, neighboring rooms, and passing trains. With a band playing until after 1 am that Friday night and people yelling in the streets...

This is a wonderful hotel in downtown Cedar Falls. It has been restored to retain its charm and décor. I'm very positive about the whole experience--location, cleanliness, service, operation, etc. Both the evening and morning front desk personnel were very cheerful and helpful. The rooms were well decorated and comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The location is wonderful especially for visiting shops downtown on Main St. We stayed in the motel section not in the historic building. Room was very nice. The customer service was amazing, I was thinking about upgrading into the main building and the owner took the time to show 3 rooms to me. Breakfast is simple but was perfect for...

This is a great historical hotel. Old world charm with modern amenities. Very comfortable and clean. I could hear some talking I think was coming from outside, but it wasn't real loud. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located right on Main Street with many restaurants, coffee shops, brewery and shopping.
