We came late at night to the Lamp Post Inn and checked in. We brought our bags up and then I started to look around. At first I saw a very dusty and dirty window, but as I began to inspect the place, I realized that the rug was filthy and the bed sheets were sandy. I really could not... More

The nightly rate may seem inexpensive compared to other hotels in the area. However, on game day weekends they REQUIRE A TWO NIGHT MINIMUM... $300 for one night at the Lamp post! This is assuming you can only stay for the one night like we could. Get a grip!

At $80/night, this place was basically half the price of other nearby options, but still expensive enough that I expected something decent, a no-frills but tidy room like a Hampton Inn or a Comfort Inn. What I got instead was a room that looked like it had been a no-frills but tidy room 30 years ago. The carpet is so... More

I always say you get what you pay for. This place is cheap so I expected no amenities what I didn't expect was the filth that was in the room. Bathroom had hair from the previous guests all over and I wouldn't even walk on the carpet without shoes. Under the bed had socks and underware along with loads of... More

Overwhelming smell of residual smoke upon entering back stairwell which was the access to our rooms 211 @ 212. Rooms had a strong smell of smoke also. Ground in that area was littered heavily with cigarette butts. Internet connection was pretty much non-existent at best. Bath towels were the smallest and thinnest I have ever seen. On the plus side... More

Do not stay here! The rooms are very run down ... Not a little as noted in other reviews. The refrigerator in our room did not work and had a towel stuffed in it to soak up the water. The towels are literally the size of the average hand towel and the soap was half the size of cheap hotel... More

Pros: The rest room is clean. Cons: The moment I walked into the room, I smelled something weird odor. The carpet is dirty. The comforter is very old, looks like from 80s. The shampoo and conditioner are of low quality. After shower, my hair become less smooth than it used to be before shower. The wifi is useless.

We spent one night. The wifi was useless; the signals were weak and when connected the "speed" was molasses or slower. The room was adequate; not filthy, but there was a used coffee stirrer left on the floor next to the nightstand so you knew the cleaning wasn't thorough. We could hear our neighbors pretty clearly. The bath towels were... More

This is a very basic inn but worth every penny we paid for it. There were four of us in one room with 2 queen sized beds -- which may or may not have been quite the usual width of a queen. My husband and I sleep in kingsized beds so every else is small. There was a fridge, microwave... More

We stayed here for 2 months in a room with a kitchen. The staff is super-nice. My only complaint is that Wi Fi is a little slow. Other than that, everything was wonderful!!! Breakfast was yummy. Towels were fresh.
