Very nice staff, however the 2 rooms we had needs to be cleaned better! Now I know from hurricane Sandy maybe this has caused this to happen. I advised the owner to look at the rooms & she said she would look into it. The motel is in a great location with everything in walking distance, great restaurants, shops &... More

We stayed at the Lamplight for two nights. The Motel was clean and the room was ok. Our air conditioner started make a loud noise. I notified the desk in the early at 8am. The owner stated that if it could not be fixed, they would switch out the unit. Nothing was done. Went back at 5 in the afternoon... More

I am so sad to write this review. During our stay what we thought were allergies ended up being illness due to mold. Initially we thought the odor was from the wall A/C. We thought it was the first time it was run and that was the smell. Then we decided it must be a wet beach towel but how... More

Dear Room # 11 Memorial Day Weekend 2014.

You were charged for the missing items, and after our phone conversation, you in fact said you... More

I have been coming here for the last 5 years with my husband and daughter. I cant tell you enough of how clean and family oriented this place is. I was saddened to hear the owner passed away last year. He was there every morning to greet us and to make sure the pool was ready to go. I love... More

I stayed here in August 2012 before Sandy hit. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was spotless. The pool was clean and seating was comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay and would happily return post Sandy.

I cancelled my reservation 48 hours in advance of my trip because of a hospitalization, and they charged me for canceling. They did not disclose to me that they needed a week's notice to waive the charge. Who knows they are going to the hospital a week in advance????

We just stayed at the Lamplight in August 2013, and were pleased at the post-Sandy renovations. Nice clean room and beautiful bathroom. However, the air conditioner was so loud we couldn't use it. Also, they claim the pool is heated, but it doesn't seem to be. All the adults we talked to complained about it, and no one wanted to... More

The Lamplight's pool is at a constant temperature of 80 Degrees. It is a heated pool not a hot tub. If the temperature drops below 80 degrees, which is usual first thing in the morning, the heater kicks on. As for the size, we have never claimed it to be a large pool. We are a small quaint, family motel... More

Lamplight is in a great location and the rooms are clean but the smoking area is in the common area right next to the pool. We had to walk throught the smoke to get to our room and smell it the entire time we were in the pool.( Most of the smoking was yhe owner) My children do not need... More

Once again, The Lamplight allows our smoking guests, a smoking section. Our Rooms are smoke free, and smokers do have a section on our patio and sun deck. When making a reservation, if you had asked for a location away from that section, we would have gladly put you in a room further from the patio. General Manager Lamplight Motel More

My husband and I stay at the Lamplight Motel every summer. It was our first time back since Hurricane Sandy struck and we weren't sure what to expect. The motel was great before, but it is back and better than ever. The first floor rooms were redone following Sandy and were extremely comfortable and cheery. We were greeted with a... More

For years my husband and I have stayed at the Lamplight during the week of July 4th. After taking a few years off, we decided to head back to Lavallette to spend our vacation. The last time we visited the LampLight was prior to Superstorm Sandy (Labor Day weekend 2012) so we were a bit unsure what to expect. We... More
