We needed a place to stop on our long journey and landed in this cute town at a special Hotel. The building dates back 100 years but the owners have nicely updated it. Coy, clean and convenient to I-90 travelers. And the town itself is walkable and charming.

We loved staying at The Ryan in June 2022 - This hotel is exactly what we were looking for. The historical appeal to the rooms is awesome. Yes, there are no TV but then back in the olden days there was no TV. Loved the claw bathtub to take a bath. The hotel is also centrally located in downtown so you can walk to all the restaurants and bars. We will stay here again, just not in the summer as the room did get warm and there didn't seem to be any air conditioning.

This place is a bit difficult to review because it's probably being exactly what it wants to be -- an OK place to stay. The rooms reminded me a lot of my college dorm in the 1970s --- not nearly as nice as dorms I've seen in recent times. So, they are drab, with some non-matching furnishings, no tv, no fridge, no microwave (but I think you could use fridge and microwave in the lobby), but it's a perfectly ok place to stay. It is advertised as a historic boutique hotel. Historic is probably accurate as I'm sure hotels of an earlier era in Wallace were nothing special. 'Boutique hotel' in today's parlance is not how I'd describe it. I think 'boutique hotel' has come to mean something that's upliftingly unique and has a somewhat classy feel. That's definitely not this place, which is a bit tired and drab. Breakfast is not much: choice of breakfast bar, a yogurt, an apple. As I said, it's OK, nothing more. It is well located in the historic part of town.

What a charming hotel. I'm on a long cross-country trip and was so pleased to have such a homey place to spend the night. Donna, the host, was friendly and welcoming. I stayed here on a recommendation of a cousin who is a regular guest. I was able to park on the street in front of the hotel (free parking). I plan to return to revisit The Ryan and explore the historic town. A++

Older building with 2 flights of stairs to climb before you reach desk and rooms. No modern conveniences. No AC ! Felt like a step back in time. Very tight single shower. Transom over door. Desk clerk never there, except to check you in. Very small town that was pretty dead. Only one descent restaurant open at night. "Light" take-away breakfast.

If your looking for quaint, the Ryan is it. Beautiful old hotel on the second floor (no elevator). Our room was clean and comfortable. They pretty much tell you what your getting with each room. Ours had a king bed but no AC due to it's proximity in the building and the desire to maintain the quaintness of the town. Donna, the owner is always very pleasant. If your going out to eat, head for the courtyard at the Fainting Goat.

We stayed end of August/Sept to ride the Hiawatha, CDA, and Centennial trails. Heat wave was gone and no smoke. Location downtown was perfect. Street parking not a problem. Spokehouse Bikes right around the corner. Sure, rooms are on second floor with no elevator but you knew that. No TV but you're out enjoying Idaho. We had separate bath/shower/toilet with the sink in the BR, but that's how you have to retrofit old buildings. And a frig & microwave. Only 1 outlet in the BR so be prepared. Comfortable bed and very, very clean room. And Donna, the owner/host, was a delight, a proverbial ray of sunshine. We'll be back next season.

I gave it an "excellent" rating, but you have to understand that that's within the context of a "historic hotel" which this is, and which I like to stay at. I think historic hotels are cool. But, they're not for everyone. Case in point: Our room did indeed have a bathroom, but that included a toilet and a BATH. No shower. The shared shower was down the hall, if you're a shower person. People may not be OK with that. Also, the sink in our room, strangely, was not in the bathroom...it was next to the bed, as far away from the toilet as it could be and still be in the same room. Weird. And, you better like stairs...all the rooms are on the second floor, which is no biggie but there's no elevator. You gotta use your legs, even with all your luggage. I don't care personally. But, these are the quirks you get when you check into historic hotels. But the room was clean, everything worked (including the wifi), the hostess was very pleasant, the coffee they had out in the morning to self-serve was surprisingly good for hotel coffee, and the breakfast snacks they had out were not those Svenhart's-type "pastries" that hotels too often have, that look like they're surplus from the Jimmy Carter era (and taste like them too). They were actually good, and included fresh fruit. The floors were not creaky nor the walls thin...which is sometimes an issue in the historic hotels. So, yeah. Cool place. I'd stay there again. The bigger problem is Wallace itself...get dinner early because nothing stays open very late (we found out the hard way). But it's a pretty cool, small, historic town if you want a quiet alternative to the bigger towns along that highway.

Loved this town. Hotel was historic and quaint. Our room had no air conditioning and unfortunately it was very hot during our visit. Something to consider when booking. We didn’t come to hang out in the room, though. It was clean and comfortable and ideally located if biking the Hiawatha trail. Would love to come back for a visit.

While others may not rate this place a 5, because of things it lacks, I'm rating a 5 because it's exactly as advertised. This is an old, historic hotel. I read the reviews on TA and the description on their website, so I knew exactly what I was getting. What you will get: A super clean room. A comfortable bed. A great location. Convenient to the highway and in a walk-able town. Super friendly hosts. There's coffee, juice, fruit and breakfast bars put out in the morning to get your day started. Great wi-fi. It's the only access we had on our phone for about a hundred miles. Which isn't a bad thing. We had no data anywhere in the northern ID and western MT, west of Missoula. Our bathroom was really small, but it did the trick. The sink was outside of the bathroom. We had a huge closet, which made me think that would have made a better bathroom. But I'm sure the logistics of switching it would be a nightmare and expensive. Our room did not have air conditioning or tv, but I knew that going in. It did have a refrigerator. We were there just ahead of the heat wave, so our room was comfortable at night with the window open and the fan running. Our main reason for visiting northern ID was to ride the Route of the Hiawatha. Wallace is the closest town to the route. Which is why I chose it. I love the history of the town. I love that it's walk-able. I agree with what others have said, if you looking for all the amenities that chain hotels have, go down the road to a different town, but if you're looking for a unique experience, in a very cool town and a good night's sleep the Ryan Hotel is the place for you. While I wouldn't call the Ryan hotel a B & B, since a full breakfast isn't available, it has the feel of one and I love that about this place.
