We were driving through the area at night and got to this motel based on recommendations from the nearby gas station. An older motel but the rooms were clean and everything was in working order. You could tell the owners were attentive in upkeep. Nice selection for the continental breakfast, and the friendly owner offered advice on several local attractions,... More

We were making last-minute plans for a trip to New London, and the folks at the Lamplighter could not have been more helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. On top of that, the morning coffee provided was of the highest quality.

Stayed here for 1 night while visiting family for a milestone birthday. The room was clean, bathroom is small, king size bed was fairly comfortable. We did sit on the sleeper couch, but did not sleep on it. For the money and the location, it worked well for us. Would go back if we were in the area.

We were in an accident on an icy road around rush hour a couple weeks ago. Far from home and family, our attending police officer and tow truck driver arranged for us to stay at the Lamplighter Motor Inn in New London. During the impact, our dog had received life-threatening injury and she was our greatest concern. The tow truck... More

I spent 4 nights at this motel while visiting friends for a wedding. I was not expecting much beyond basic accommodations, but was pleasantly surprised. My room was very spacious, the bathroom meticulously clean, the beds and linens very comfortable. Some road noise early in the evening, but nothing noticeable by bed time. I appreciated that my room had a... More

One of the rooms was large basic room with two double beds. The room had a refrigerator and basic furniture (chests of drawers) and a table with two... More

The rooms, although somewhat outdate, are large and clean. Two minor issue - there were no directions for the TV/Satellite remote control and breakfast, as advertised from 7 - 10 was not available at 8AM. Excellent location on Main Street

This motel is small and quaint and basic, but sweet and comfortable enough. The room was very large with a king size (comfy) bed, a couch, large flat screen TV, fridg and microwave. The bathroom was tiny, and the decor is very much from the 1970s. The room was clean although a bit musty smelling. At night we could hear... More

Stayed one night. The inn was clean and the room was good sized, with a refrigerator. The bathroom is small; the sink is outside the bathroom, which makes it easier for two people to get ready at the same time. The innkeeper is very nice and accommodating. Double beds with comfortable mattresses and pillows. Thermostat controlled. Walls are a thin;... More
