Office staff are very accommodating and the location is perfect. We stayed 2 nights and maid service only replaced towels. No beds were made, which is ok, but the overflowing garbage in both cans was not emptied. For over $100 a night it would be nice to have the basic cleaning done. The carpet has stains and should be replaced as it made me wonder how clean it really was. If there were no other options to stay, which was the case this time, I would stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3; this small section of the parking lot seemed quiet.

We received friendly and courteous service during check in.
The room was large and clean. Furniture and decorations were dated.
Well-equipped with TV, coffee, microwave, refrigerator, and a quiet air conditioner.
Comfortable bed and pillows.
Relatively expensive.

There aren't many lodging choices in Wallace which is a shame because my husband and I really enjoyed this town. The Stardust motel is old and all the decor is very dated but it has a certain charm that goes well with this historic town. There is nothing fancy about it, in fact it was a pretty drab room but it was clean and the folks that run the motel were very nice and easy to deal with. The real plus is the location to enjoy the town. Everything is a short walk away. My only complaints that might make me stay at the Wallace Inn next time instead was the bathroom. No place to put anything or plug anything in and the shower was awful. I couldn't get it to stay on a tempurature. It was either freezing cold or scorching hot so I gave up and showered at our next destination.If I was staying more than one night it would have been an issue. It's time to bring the plumbing up to this century or reduce the rates. I still give this lodging a very good because of the location but just know when you choose this motel that your expectations should be low and you will be happy.

Room Tip: Our ground floor room had a front and back door which was handy. Parking was tight and we pulled a bike trailer so get there early if you need parking on the street and still want to see your vehicle.

Clean, staff friendly and accepting when we needed to check out late. Best feature is location, location.

It's clean, other guests were courteous; design is old style, but I will stay there again because of the location on edge of downtown - well downtown such as it is. Walkable easily - winner.

Wallace is an old mining town seemed to be built about 1900 and a gem to stroll through. Eateries, wine bar, brew pub, mine tours, liked the stay a lot. Planned to leave at 9:30 the next morn, left at 12;30.

W/O a pool of its own, Stardust apparently has arrangement with another motel walkable distance (long) to use their pool if just show Stardust room key. There is also a city pool in walking distance.

Room Tip: no advice on room choice, but front desk help seemed straightforward.

This is the second year that we attended the Wallace Blues Festival and stayed at the Stardust Motel. There's no argument that the Stardust is a piece of Americana because it's an older motel in a small town, but that doesn't diminish the hospitality of the folks that run it. Ed and Nancy Larsen are extremely friendly and accommodating; as is Rick when dealing with him via emails. The rooms are comfortable and the A/C works great. It had a coffee maker as well as a small refrigerator. Every time we return to Wallace we'll see about getting a room at the Stardust. The best part is its location to the major venues of the annual Blues Festival.

Room Tip: If you plan on staying at the Stardust for the annual Wallace Blues Festival, book early.
