Over the years I have stayed at the Wallace Inn at least half a dozen times. On the surface it remains the nicest motel in Wallace, but its amenities have slipped since the days when it was a member of the Best Western chain. A couple years ago I noticed the souvenir shop adjoining the motel's restaurant had been closed. On our most recent stay we were informed that the restaurant would be open only for breakfast. It seems they are following the same path as the railroads did when passenger counts began to wane and, in response, they cut service to a lower level. I'm guessing there will be no restaurant at all on my next visit. Hopefully I'm wrong on that guess.
The staff were pleasant, efficient and helpful. Our room was clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was well stocked. They have a very nice pool and hot tub just off the lobby. The price seemed a bit high though. Even using my AARP membership the two of us ended up paying $142 for one night. Granted, this is the tourist season, but it was also a Wednesday night and the motel was not near capacity.
There was one problem with the room. During the middle of the night my adult son tried to turn on the air-conditioning fan, but it wouldn't work. We tried again in the morning, and still nothing. I meant to tell the front desk on checkout, but forgot.
I will return, but I hope things get straightened out by next summer.
