On 12/22/2013 I stayed in in room 14 at the Lamplighter and I have nothing but high praises for them. The room was immaculately clean, not a bit of dirt or dust anywhere. The decor was excellent and very "non-motelish"! The bathroom was well supplied with amenities and spotless. Other amenities included a large screen T.V., microwave and refrigerator. The... More

This little mom and pop place was decent enough. Reasonably clean, a bit worn and shabby as should be expected considering the price you pay. beds were comfy, internet was good (and free), TV was big 'ol tube. Owners were friendly. Ice machine is unfortunately accessible to everyone, including small children and it's design allows anyone to play in the... More

Upon arrival, we were told that the room we had booked was unavailable due to flooding -- the plumber was at the hotel. We stayed in a very small, corner room that did not have a working lock. Bedclothes had hair (head and pubic) and bathroom was moldy. Is not in a good area of Clearlake and I did not... More

The rooms are very old and outdated. Not very clean. The locks did not work on the room I was in. The water was not very hot for showers. The TV was as big as the bed with a 12" screen and scratchy picture. It smelled bad. I could only take one night of it. I had a 2 month... More

When we asked the owners if we could borrow plates and glasses they happily loaned them to us. The room, with a very comfortable king-size bed, had a little dining alcove with a table and two chairs. We microwaved our meal and were delighted to have a table to eat from. In this lack-lustre small town this was the best... More

For the price you can't expect luxury but what you can expect is the management to take a little pride in their establishment. We were greeted by "Miss Personality" herself who was obviously having a bad day. The husband must have noticed and came to the desk to help instead. After check-in carrying the luggage upstairs was rather interesting because... More

Althought the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, the customer service was very negligent. There was no hot water for the entire night and next day. There is no accessible ice machine, on a hot July day! The ice machine is in their personal quarters and you have to wait outside awhile, a seeming inconvenience to them. The... More
