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.
