Reviewed 9 August 2017

This is definitely a 1950's motel. My husband and i checked in at about 5:30pm. (Check-in was at 4pm) We were given room 16 which was next to the quiet neighborhood street.. On the plus side, it was very clean, had a working air-conditioner, flat screen TV, hair-dryer, nice fluffy towels, a comfortable bed and a coffee maker. The parking was free and there was a continental breakfast. On the minus side, there were no muffins or donuts, just bagles juice, coffee and yogurt. The wi-fi was wanting. It worked as long as you were close to the door but started failing or just stopped as you got further into the room. (very frustrating) There were only two pillows on the queen bed but they didn't have much body to them. The top of the headboard of the bed was low enough that both of us kept bumping our heads. I told my husband to call the front desk and ask for two more pillows. He said there was no phone in the room. He was right. I had to go out to get some from the front desk.
So that meant there couldn't be a wake-up call for the morning. The bathroom sink appeared to be coming detached from the wall and was caulked and cracked looking. The tub had a couple of chips in the porcelain. There was no bath mat to step out of the tub onto the tile floor so you could possibly slip and fall if you weren't careful. For $90 a night, This wasn't a great deal.

Room Tip: I don't know anything about other rooms here.

Other reviews had said the motel was clean and comfortable. We were expecting the "retro" look as we had done our research. What we didn't expect was how dirty it was. The bedding was clean, the sink, toilet, and tub were clean, but I don't think the floors had been vacuumed (found a used bandaid and clipped toenails next to the bed) or the bathroom floor swept (hair). We were told they were training a new person but someone should have been following up.

Late at night and wanting to go further, I pulled off the highway into Wallace and found this gem. Clean, comfortable. Incredibly friendly staff. Great breakfast. Staff was very knowledgeable about Wallaces history. I will go back.

Room Tip: You get a real room key with your room number on it. Just like the old days!

We stayed overnight. The staff were very kind and helpful.
The room was dated but clean. The price was great!
It would be great if they could make the lower level rooms more accessible for the wheelchairs, there is a step up, so we had to lift the electric chair up and down but for the price very do-able. We will be back for sure.

It looks like improvement is in process but far from complete. The towels were okay and I think the drapes had been replaced.
The bed was not great. Maybe the room we had was awaiting updates/repairs. The shower head in the vintage pink bathroom looked like it was not attached so well to the wall. The caulk around the tub had nasty blackened areas. That can be cleaned. It really can. The tub did not drain as it should ... backup to your ankles ... hate that. I think the room we had was a smoking room recently because it smelled pretty funky. This should be a two-star rating but the pleasant & helpful staff gives it an extra one. There are limited choices for accommodations in Wallace and we'll probably try for somewhere else next time.
