The Stardust Motel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Wallace
Reviewed 18 June 2012

The Stardust motel was one of the highlights of our 76 day trip around the United States. Small town Americana is alive and well in this tiny town snuggled in the Idaho Mountains. The Stardust Motel is what we've come to call "Funky but Clean". I would add "Charming" to that definition.

The Motel staff is efficient and friendly and we arrived in Wallace in time for the last day of the Gyro Festival. A carnival was set up in the middle of town and kids were scaring themselves silly on rides and folks were throwing away next month's grocery budget trying to win a stuffed animal.

Our room was comfortably furnished; everything worked well, the shower head is not the best, but is a water saver and that is very important in this ecologically conscious town. The beds were comfortable, pillows good and linens in good shape and snowy white.

We've been traveling since April 1st, and have another month to go before we arrive back in Pensacola Florida to settle in for the winter. We've stayed in a motel every night of this journey, oh and 3 nights at a KOA campground. The Stardust is one of our favorites and we highly recommend it. OH, and the view from the front window is the stuff from which postcards are made.

Will stay here again. Friendly staff and management and clean room and good price I didn't give it a five because the room smelled a bit musty, but I don't think that can be helped because the town itself pretty much smelled the same way. We are from a small town so we enjoyed staying a smaller town and glad we stopped here rather than continuing on to Coeur d'Alene to stay. The mountains are gorgeous and we enjoyed a casual walk around the town and seeing a bit of mining history.

We didn't end up staying here, fortunately the "sister property" had a room available for an additional $20 so we were saved from this black hole. The Stardust is a fairly older motel. With that said, it is dirty, dark, dusty, and basically the bottem end of a nights' stay. The staff were courteous and professional, but I just couldn't think of staying here for the night when a better place was within a mile drive!

Room Tip: Just stay at the Wallace Inn and save yourself the hassle. The Wallace Inn has a pool, hot tub, sau...

I got snowed in November 2011 and wanted a clean, safe place to rest my head. The motel is a bit dated but it was immaculate! That's hard to find and the price was right. They had wireless internet and a restaurant right around the corner. The managers were very friendly and I had a great nights sleep.

Stayed at the Stardust again last Friday and Saturday night. They are all now non-smoking rooms and their free internet service has been significantly upgraded. Great value for a no-frills stay over.
