We stayed here in May..When we got to the room it smelled like someone smoked in there. The floors were sticky, only 1 towel and the table grimmy. Looked under one of the beds and it had water bottle tops and a wash rag under it. there was no water glass or shampoos or even a bar of soap. I... More

We booked this hotel during a long camping trip in the Fort Collins area, planning to use it to shower only, and wound up staying the night. The room that we had was small, but comfortable and clean, and the manager went above and beyond to make sure that our expectations were met/exceeded during our stay. Also, the hotel was... More

Nearly spotless room, small but very nice for this price range. Pleasantly surprised, much better than expected! Our room had carpeting but I peeped into some other rooms and they all had hardwood floors. Our room had a great bed + fridge & microwave in room. No coffee maker or hair dryer. Ironing board but no iron (get from front... More

After booking I read some of the reviews and, especially after reading about bedbugs, was a bit nervous. All I can say is this place was GREAT for us. So glad we stayed here and not at the Motel 6 which is more expensive and a lot less appealing. It's maybe a mile or 2 from Old Town. The first... More

The staff was very nice and the property was well maintained, but my non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. I know the owners have a hard time enforcing the non-smoking policy with their guests because idiot smokers don't realize how bad they stink and don't think anybody will notice if they smoke in the rooms. But I don't want to... More

I am sorry that you had any problems with my property, and yes all Hotels have had the had to deal with people smoking where they shouldn't and we clean it when it happen. I'll have to say that I'm not sure if it was cigarette smoke you were smelling since at that time we had 4 or 5 forest... More

I'm giving 5 stars because based on the price, $50 our expectations were very low. However, the place was clean, everything worked and it felt safe. There was nothing wrong with it and for the price that was very cool. On the North side of Fort Collins there are four inexpensive motels but this one is not like the other... More

Stayed here when daughter was graduating from CSU. Adequate for a nights stay. Plenty of food/grocery opportunities closeby.

I had stayed there when it was the Lamplighter and was happy enough to return. I found as an ABV that the service is still friendly, is a better location than staying out on the interstate, and completely adequate for the purpose. Am staying again this month (8/11).

Ok the hotel has been renovated in the last year or so. Room is clean but small. Bathroom seems clean. CRT TV, they need to join the 21st century. Nice hard wood floors in the room, however, they come with a price. Being an older motel, you can here the people upstairs as if they were sitting right next to... More
