The Black Hawk Hotel, listed on the National Trust of Historic Places, is the oldest continuously-operating hotel site West of the Mississippi. The historic building offers 27 rooms from standard accommodations to luxury suites with marble bathrooms/jacuzzi tubs and antique furnishings. A business center is also available to our guests. Adjacent to the historic hotel is our vintage Motor Lodge which offers 15 king rooms with mid-century modern style furnishings and original art. This facility includes a workout room and all the modern conveniences demanded by today's sophisticated traveler at an affordable price point. The Black Hawk occupies a prime location in the heart of Cedar Falls on Historic Main St. where all the action is...great restaurants, shops and entertainment options. We are also steps from the picturesque Cedar River with its walking and bike trails and just 5 minutes from the UNI Campus.

With warmth and cheery Midwestern hospitality, The Black Hawk welcomes you to enjoy 100-year-old charm. Carefully restored and updated, we imagine the place is nicer now than it was in it’s heyday. Plenty of room, solid comfortable furnishings, a good bar and restaurant, too.

We had a great experience in The Blackhawk. Staff could not have been nicer. Rooms are spacious and airy and the atmosphere! Wow. Just feels so great. Updated showers and commodes; nice furniture, bed was heavenly. Lobby is beautiful -- just like old hotels in the movies.

This historic hotel in the Cedar Falls downtown area was so much fun that we stayed an extra night and still need to go back for more. This was a combination business/getaway and perfect for both. The hotel bar patio on Main Street was very nice, especially with the unexpected
