Positives: the owner was friendly, served a nice little continental breakfast and refunded our money with cheerful equanimity. Negatives: Sadly outdated. Worn out linoleum, bed uncomfortable (very thin "pad" between me and the mattress), paper thin walls. Right next to 101 with semis rolling by all night. Did I mention the view? There is none. Stares at the blank wall... More

I came to the Lamplighter on the suggestion of the Crest Motel owner. The Crest had no availability. The gentleman at the front desk was pleasant and helpful. He put me in a room in the back of the lot to 'get away from the road noise." he said. I know he meant well, but the room was at the... More

This has to be one of the worst motels we have stayed in. The motel is situated next to a busy road,the room was noisy and not clean. They had old stained pillow covers, in fact I thought at first that they hadn't been changed, but they smelt ok so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. The bathroom... More

Cute little motel near the Astoria bridge. Stayed in April 2014. Outdated however still clean. Service was good, the gentleman at the front desk was delightful and helpful. Small continental breakfast but good oatmeal. Very decent stay and right value for the price. If you want somewhere ritzy this ain't the place for you. You get what you see.

The staff was very friendly. We had a room upstairs on the top level. It was clean, comfortable and affordable.. Don't be expecting much It is what it is- a motel, but it was sparking clean and has cable! When we come back to visit we will definitely be staying here.

I have stayed here many times. It is a great value, comfortable rooms, a nice but small breakfast . tasty but sweet pastry. Bananas and Oranges. I think for the quality and value it's about the best Astoria has to offer

I'd planned to camp at Ft Stevens but had a tag along friend who wanted to stay in a hotel. We ended up here. What a mistake. The room had cigarette smoke coming thru the adjoining door to the room (connected to another room). We could hear everything any of our neighbors said. The bathroom floor was sinking. At 5am,...

Astoria Or. is a nice place to travel through. The chain motels are pricey (arround $150.) which really isn,t worth it. The lamplighter is a dated hotel near the big bridge that has lot,s of traffic near by. At $90. it a little too much--but this town will make you pay.Then rooms were clean. The bath floor should have been... More

This place is very outdated but staff are very friendly. The bed was comfortable and had hot water. It is a nice walk to town from this motel along the river walk. Passed on the continental breakfast as it was only offering pastries but the Pig and Pancake is on the same parking lot so this worked for us.
