Great place to stay when visiting SDSU. I really don't want to let the word out since it is already booked up most weekends. Just a great family oriented relaxing happy place that is easy to find and access San Diego and surrounding areas.

We loved our stay at the BW Lamplighter. Close to SDSU where our conference was being held and conveniently located near many freeways. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Wi-Fi was a bit iffy but we didn't need to access the WiFi all that much. The breakfast was impressive with a nice selection of items.

Excellent value. My home away from home while in San Diego. Helpful staff. BBQ your steaks or hot dogs poolside. Walking distance to many restaurants. Well selected, trained and motivated staff. Close to all San Diego activities.

We were very impressed first by our welcome checking in and the efficiency in getting us our room along with a map to our destination. Our room was spotless, quiet and the bed comfortable. We had a great nights sleep and had an easy time reaching our destination which was very close by. Overall great experience

This place was nice but, no microwave, refrigerator, or hot tub. Also breakfast kinda sucked. Staff was friendly and helpful price was reasonable. 200 Characters is to way much to type, I'm not trying to write a book

We were taking a short site-seeing vacation on the heels of a business conference in San Diego. TripAdvisor ratings steered us to this property. As advertised, the facilty was attractive, very clean and neat, with a professional staff. Only negative was the lack of decent (not fancy) dinner type restaurants within a 15 minute drive. We found take-out the best... More
