Great motel I have staayed here several times before. In a nice part of San Diego. There are many popular restaurants and stores in the area. The bed was comfortable and the area was quiet. San Diego is a great place for vacations.

Had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The staff was very helpful. Melissa printed step by step driving instructions. If it weren't for Justin's directions by phone we would have been lost in the belly of San Diego. The only complaint is the beds were to firm

Pro's: The Motel is very clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Even though the motel is situated on a busy road, traffic noise could not be heard from our room #224 for me this is a big plus. We didn't use the pool but we could see that it was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was the... More

Stayed here 3 days over the fourth of July weekend, after spending 3 days in a luxury Gaslamp District Hotel. The Best Western Lamplighter did not disappoint one bit. The other reviews are spot on - an extremely clean and well maintained facility, outstanding and very helpful staff, nice small pool, and very adequate breakfast. I stayed with my wife,... More

If you looking for an average hotel at an above average price this location meets that. its your basic room with noisy air conditioning unit, cramped room with dated furniture and shower with fluctuating water temperature, sometime too hot then suddenly cold and then back to hot. The fact it is near SDSU likley makes it a more expensive room... More

We were in the San Diego area for a family wedding. I would absolutely recommend this hotel! The staff was friendly and helpful; the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast gave a satisfying start to the day. And being a little bit out of San Diego "city", the gas prices were a little cheaper.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 week while I was in San Diego for work. I stayed in one of the rooms that had a full kitchen and was pleased to find a small fridge, microwave, and stove with utensils. The room was very clean, the place was relatively quiet, and it was an easy commute to where I... More
