The Brooks Hotel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Wallace
Reviewed 19 September 2017

Wallace, Idaho is an old mining town that has made the mistake of having the entire town placed on the National Register of Historic Places. That sounds nice, but it also prevents buildings from being remodeled and modernized, sometimes even on the inside. The Brooks is an old building in an old town. The owners do a great job of keeping it clean, but it runs at much less than capacity so stale air can interfere with your nose sometimes. We stayed in two rooms on the third floor. One has three queen beds in a long, narrow room which uses the bathroom to help divide it into two areas with the fridge and a counter also helping to define the spaces. The other room was a regular single. Both rooms are newly remodeled, clean, and with modest furnishings. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are adequate and clean. The Brooks has no elevator, so if you aren't up to two flights of stairs you may want to opt for the first or second floor. There's a big private parking lot behind the hotel and a baggage cart is available for your use. Your room key operates the back door lock. Beautiful downtown Wallace comprises about four blocks and is easily walkable. Since the Brooks is towards one edge and is on the main route through town, you can hardly get lost. Overall, the Brooks is a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. Our three-bed room didn't have a microwave. We just used the one in the other room. When we checked out I mentioned to the desk clerk that we thought it strange that one of the rooms had a micro and the other didn't. She and the man who was sitting in the office immediately decided it had been stolen. He was pragmatic. "I'll check the video and figure out who did it," he said.

Personalized service, helpful and felt like staying with family. From the warm welcome to the anecdotes about the family and history, it was amazing.
The rooms are very quiet even if our fridge sounded a bit loud.

We stayed in this nice old hotel. Central location and with a nice restaurant. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful with our questions about the surrounding area. The hotel is well away from the Interstate so is was easy to get a really good sleep. We felt we had made a good choice.

The hotel is located on a very easy to find corner of town. Walking to anything is quick and full of things to see. The hotel has a nice little bar and café inside the hotel and on the street. Remember, this is history. Silver is big and plays a major part in this area. Take a stroll around and see the sights.

Room Tip: Park out back as to gain access to the hotel.....

Maybe I had an out of the ordinary experience for this hotel... it has been years and years since I've asked for a refund. The smell of the hallway and rooms was as if a dirty diaper had been left for days. The windows were taped closed, not only no fresh air but a fire hazard. And the icing on the cake was that the floor gave when I walked in. Hotel needs some serious work and love.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. The location was nice - close to town attractions. Fridges and microwaves in the room. Quiet at night. Definitely recommend.

This is definitely an old hotel that needs a lot of work. However, I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel. The new owners were very helpful and shared with us some of the history of this quaint hotel. Good customer service, too! We love the location as it is within walking distance of just about everything in Wallace.
