Reviewed July 19, 2013

My wife and I stayed here during the 2013 Blues Festival. Rick and Ras graciously welcomed us and made us feel right at home. They were most helpful, very knowledgable about the area and quick to respond. They were delightful to work with.

The Motel is a slice of Americana, with a classic look and setup. The rooms are clean, comfortable and complete. The rates are very good. Restaurants and bars are an easy walk away. The location is ideal.

We had a blast at the Festival. Many of our friends stayed there too. This was our first time at the Stardust. We have already made our reservations for the 2014 Blues Festival, and intend to stay here for many years to come.

I highly recommend this fine motel.

A blast from the past, an older motel off the beaten path. Very friendly front desk woman. We liked the look and feel of this place even with the mixed reviews we decided to stay and see for ourselves.
Everything was expected from a pretty well maintained older motel. We laughed at the air in the pipes when we turned on the water. That didn't bother us and didn't last long once we figured out just how much water pressure was needed for that not to happen. The room was clean, had a fridge which we appreciated and used.
The location is great, actually. Just off the beaten path about a block or so from Main Street where most of the town's businesses are. The neighborhood is mostly residential and quiet with lots of lovely flowers and HUGE trees. We took a fairly long walk around the neighborhood and admired the old homes and the many churches for such a small area. Some of the buildings were maked with the yr built back to the 1800's. As I said before, A step back in time~

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building on the second floor room 38, it suited our needs well. It is more o...

This was our 3rd visit to historic Wallace in the past 5 years. As a member of a 5 family cycling club, we decided to start (rather than end) this year's trip in the quaint town of Wallace, more specifically at the Stardust Motel. We were greeted by Rick (Prime Minister of the Trail system) who was instrumental in shuttling us back to vehicles at the Hiawatha! Rick provided countless corresponding emails to ensure a great trip. Our families always have a blast back in time in the town. The Motel was super clean and the management was more than helpful (especially when it came to filling our camel packs with ice!). I had a great sleep and our kids loved the morning safety meeting in the space craft...nanno nanno!
Everyone we met in town was friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Greg and Dianne were also helpful in providing beautiful copies of the "Centre of the Universe" jpeg photos for our jerseys. I felt like the entire town, including 1313 Club for supper and Red Light Garage for breakfast, received us with open arms. Another successful journey for our cycling group..... we can't wait to return to make new memories!!!!

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Stardust ( remember Back to the Future). You can't judge a motel by its exterior. It was clean, easy walking distance to Wallace's restaurants and attractions and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to all.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We’re glad we were able to provide a quiet place for you to spend your vacation. As for the internet, we are very sorry that it was slow. Around the time that you stayed with us, we were experiencing some glitches with our wireless internet. It is up and running normally now. Again, thank you for your feedback and we look forward to your next the visit.

(Time warp #2 was next door at the Red Light Garage).

My timing has never been right to stop in Wallace before so this was my first time. The ‘Wallace Inn’ is why I knew there were motels in this town, but the Stardust is a little less money which is what I am all about.

Check-in was ‘small town friendly.’ Actually it was more like I stepped back into the 1950’s. In fact this whole town likely looks much like it did in the 1950’s and I somewhere saw a sign that the ‘entire town is listed as a Historic Landmark.’

I’ll let my pictures tell most of the story … other than to say that everything in the motel is old but kept very clean.

We stayed here for 2 nights while riding the nearby bike trails. It is an old style motel with nothing fancy. The room was large, clean and comfortable. It had a fridge and coffee maker. The office had a microwave for the guests to use. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better...walking distance to everything. It is not a 5 star hotel and it does't have 5 star rates. It is a great value.
