Rick the owner was very gracious and called me back to make a reservation. We like smaller towns and Cody hotels are all overpriced so we chose to call The Lamplighter in Powelll 20 minutes away. Very well maintained, great service by staff and, the real surprise, the room was very recently renovated and easily compared to a 3 or... More

We were searching and searching for a motel to stop in at after a long day (and even longer exit) from Yellowstone. Called here and was greeted as if it was the middle of the day (it was close to midnight) by the most welcoming voice. He seemed genuinely happy to help us out. Extremely reasonably priced and way nicer... More

I spent two nights in this hotel. The room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator, as well a tv, clock radio, coffee maker, table and desk. Everything worked fine. The room was quiet. The office was never open when I went there, but there was a phone, and you could pick up the receiver and the owner would... More

Others have rated the Super 8 above the Lamplighter. The Lamplighter gets my business about once each year because of it's uniqueness and the hospitality. Rick and his wife work hard to keep this older property in good repair. The decor is older in style, but comfortable. The matresses are always updated and the linens are clean. With a refridgerator... More

Not the worst we have stayed in (the Horse Shoe Bend in Lovell, WY takes the cake for that one) but quite bad to say the least. Nasty industrial carpet along with those disgusting polyester bed spreads (do motel/hotel operators SERIOUSLY think those are attractive or sanitary?) and those strange, light blue - fuzzy "felt" worthless blankets that adorn every...

For my birthday my family and I went to the Lamplighter restaurant in Powell. I have to say i am quite displeased. The food is overpriced, overcooked, and in every sense of the word, bland. My mother paid $22 for an 8-9oz. hunk of overcooked salmon, and I was forced to pay $70 for a rubbery piece of lobster tail.... More

While I cannot speak for their hotel services, We had a horrific experience with their food. We were visiting for my little brother's birthday. All seafood we purchased, which included their Salmon and their Lobster, was dry and unpleasant to eat. The lobster had a terrible rubbery texture and a very rotten taste. The waitress gave us little service and... More

Stayed here for a board meeting and we were made to feel very welcome. Older facility but spotlessly clean. Owner is fun and interesting to talk with. We had eaten in Cody so ran into the Inn's liquor store (very well stocked with great beer and wine selections) and then sat out on the upstairs patio and enjoyed one last... More

This place is a hoot - it's attatched to a restaurant and a liquor store. So, you do not have to drive to have a great time. We sat outside on lawn chairs provided and had a really good time. Their restaurant was very very nice - maybe a little too fancy for bikers so we walked to a little... More

Arrived here late (after 9:30) on Sunday August 12th after a long day of flying and driving from Billings MT. The owner (Rick) was at the desk and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The room itself was plenty big and exceptionally clean. In particular, the bathroom was immaculate. Beds were very comfortable including nice linens.... More
