Get what you pay kind of hotel. Ok room. No microwave or refrigerator. Bathroom door wont lock.No temperature control. The beds were average and there was only 1 pair of soap for showering. No breakfast. Although there was no road noise, people walking and chatting in the corridor, felt like they were inside our room. Free wifi sucked in the... More

Thank you for letting us know what you didn't like. Concerning the bathroom door had you let us know we would have fixed it or relocated you to another room as all our bathroom doors should lock. Our Inn does not advertise that we supply refrigerators and micro-waves in rooms. We offer a full service Grill on our property with... More

We had two garden view rooms on the ground floor. The rooms have a door from the parking area around the back, and another door onto the garden in the middle. The gardens are a delight. It would have been nice for each ground floor room to have had their own seating so we could have enjoyed sitting outside to... More

Thank you for your review. I am most certainly sorry you had a problem with the room. I cannot imagine what the "odor" was but not having the room number I have no way of checking this out. Our garden area have padded benches on each garden section and there should have been ample benches for you and your traveling... More

The Lamp Lighter is a very nice place. Nothing fancy, but a clean comfortable room. Good service at the front desk too. The rooms are nice, though the TV is a throwback to the mid 2000's (small crt tube). But since I just used the room for sleeping and showering it was fine. The free wifi is pretty awful though....

Had a very relaxing couple of days here. The rooms are a good size with big comfy bed. The room has fridge and microwave and are clean. There is a large pool on site was good to swim in. The hotel has lovely grounds and is well kept. Highly recommend.

We started at King's Canyon and spent the day touring this and Sequoia National Park. We passed several hotels priced at $149 nt and up, outside Sequoia National Park that looked in need of major renovations so we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the Lamp Liter Inn priced at $69nt.The grounds are immaculate and extremely well groomed. The lobby... More

Well thank you for reviewing our property. I don't know that anyone is "hilarious" about our property but I do think that a great deal of people enjoy staying with us. I am sorry you had difficulty with the fan . The fans are situated in the middle of the room and are quite obvious.The ceilings are the standard 8... More

Charming Place. Established in the early '60's, it was like a trip to the past. The garden area was very well groomed and rooms were clean and fresh. The staff was friendly and charming as well. The restaurant next door was a great breakfast stop and the adjoining bar was a great place to unwind in the evening. Large pool... More

The Lamp Liter is just plane nice! Yes it's older, but it was very clean and the grounds were very well manicured. Rooms had a sligh musty odor but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly.

As mentioned by others, the grounds are well kept and the rooms are clean. The price was very economical- less than $75 for a 2 queen bed room. The property is easy to find, and less than one hour drive to the Sequoia National Park. The internet was nonfunctional during our stay, but we really didn't need it as we... More

The Lamp Liter has been in Visalia for more than 50 years and it is showing its age. The grounds, as mentioned by others, are nice and well kept up. The location, right off 198, is also convenient. The rooms are okay, a bit small but generally clean and decently maintained, but really outdated. The bed in our second room... More

Thank you for your review. We have been working on updating our Wi-Fi and it is hopeful we will have no further issues. You mentioned that when you told the clerk about the problem with the Wi-Fi that they acted surprised. It was most likely because they themselves were not experiencing a problem at the front desk Wi-Fi connection or... More
