We reserved a block of rooms at the Lamplight for our daughters wedding and they could not have been more accommodating to our guests. Great location, clean rooms and terrific management to deal with - recommend!

Every year we return to this shore staple and have a wonderful stay. We always stay on the first floor which is very easy to access the pool area. The motel's close proximity to the beach (a block away) is very ideal. Nearby restaurants are within walking distance as well. The rooms were renovated after hurricane Sandy and continue to... More

Once again our stay at the Lamplight proved to be wonderful. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Even though the shore area is still in recovery mode from Hurricane Sandy, the Lamplight is returning to its original "glory." It's in a great location, central to some excellent restaurants and shops and a block... More

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. In response to your review, You did forget to mention that upon check out, your or your party were fined for not only stealing my bed linens, but also for the disgusting mess you left.

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.
