My husband and I were returning from a getaway vacation in Montreal with our two children. We were in basically the middle of nowhere when it began to rain and sleet. The roads started getting icy and we were concerned that we would not make it safely back to Massachusetts. We took a chance on the first lodging that we... More

The owner, George, is such an incredibly lovely person who welcomes you as if you are family. This Inn is lovely and close to many of the beautiful shops in the area. My husband and I fell in love with everything about it. I highly recommend it!

We were spending a couple days in New London, and since it was very hot, we decided to spend the night in a motel instead of a relative's vacant, non-air conditioned house. The Lamplighter was conveniently located and reasonably priced. It was a good choice. The room was clean and comfortable, and we got a good night's sleep. We were... More

Was tired of driving and went to the Inn based on recommendation of a local gas station. Older facility; however, very well maintained, very clean, very large room, TV, and air conditioning. Only $99 total. Staff is very friendly and helpful. My wife left an outfit in a drawer and they mailed it home.It does not get any better.

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
