Located on Main Street this is closet motel to downtown, and is great for an overnight transit stop or as a base to visit the Sand dunes. Have stayed here before and latest stay was July 10th for 1 night again in room 121. Friendly staff, large king room with twin queen beds, good size bathroom and separate wash basin... More

We stayed here two nights and had a nice stay. The staff was friendly enough, and the included breakfast was nice. The room was clean and we had no problems. I really liked the brick walls inside the room.

We had the misfortune of stopping here, as it was the only motel in the area with a room. There was some type of an event that we did not know about going on. We had come to the area to look at some real estate. Anyway, we went in and the lady at the desk was nice, we grimaced... More

We chose this hotel because it's on main street and we could walk to shops and restaurants. The rooms are circa 1966, pink tub, pink toilet, and brick wall design. The bedding is old (one of the sheets has a huge rip) and the blankets are worn and pilled. We did a thorough check of the bedding, walls, and curtains... More

I have heard that they have supposedly "fixed" their Bed Bug problem. But they have NOT. They were HUGE and very WELL FED! My family of four (with two children) stayed here the night before last. We were happy to get a room during a busy weekend. Good price as well. We walked into the room and it was very... More

Value is fine and good location. If you are looking to time travel back to 1973 look no further. A close walking distance to the brew pub is the reason I chose this place and everything worked out well.

Room was okay, no bugs, sheets were clean, bath okay.... Nothing fancy, or even "quaint" or "quirky". Really odd set up for advertised pool: you get a key to walk over a block or so to an old abandoned motel, let yourself in through the locked padlocked gate and use the pool there. Breakfast of eggs, meat, homefries, and toast... More

The rate that was advertised on the website is not what we were charged. We were offered no breakfast vouchers, but yet when we ate at Rockies, the restuarant attached to the motel, several people were coming in with vouchers for breakfast. We we told that because of the Car show, the rates were higher and the management did not... More

I decided to stay at the Lamplighter to get a flavor of the 50-60s style places that I use to stay at on my travels to and from Phoenix. The room was clean and everything worked well. It is not fancy motel, more of a Motel 6 style room. The price was decent and the free breakfast the following morning... More

We stayed at the Lamplighter numerous times but not for several years. This was our last stay. The towels were thin (Bounty paper towels absorbed more - and that's what I used!) and 1 bath towel was totally ragged along the edge. The owner should be embarrased to have them in the room. Splotchy paint or spackle covered cracks in... More
