My friend and I have been travelling around New Mexico this month and decided to stay at Americas Best Value Inn Lamplighter based on its reviews from TripAdvisor and the very cheap rate. We were not disappointed; it completely surpassed our expectations and was definitely our favourite motel in New Mexico. We even returned to stay there another night later... More

I am a senior single lady. I came to Santa Fe for all the operas. Santa Fe shuttle picked me up for $25 round trip. My room was 2nd floor facing Cerrillos. I found it very comfortable and cozy and very clean and odorless. The noise was not an issue. The room even had a little fridge. The AC and... More

I stayed here 6 years ago under different management. Things are not quite as nice then. There are a lot of things that make this an incredible find in an otherwise very expensive city. The price can't be beat. The location is very convenient, even if it is not within walking distance of the Plaza. It is very clean everywhere.... More

This is a great place to stay! Comfortable rooms, clean, and friendly staff! Our first visit to Santa Fe, this was the only hotel with available rooms- it was definitely a place to return to. Hot breakfast with great hours. Location is central to many attractions in the area. Hotel staff knew the area, pointed us in the right direction... More

I stayed here because of the good reviews. For its price, it is well located with good facilities. Rooms were clean, staff friendly, it has a pool, wifi, laundry, and a good location. I was disappointed though on some of the details. Breakfast was quite good. My room got really hot and stuffy, and the air con struggled to keep... More

This is an older hotel but don't be fooled. It was clean and quiet. The rooms are very large and the beds very comfortable. Great location and price. This is the place to stay after a day of exploring the Santa Fe area; will stay again next time we are in Santa Fe.

This is an older motel, but which is well maintained and managed. The room was clean, spacious and contained a well prepared kitchen area, suitable for preparing light meals. The aircon struggled to maintain a cool temperature and was rather noisy, but did not prevent me sleeping in the quite comfortable bed. The TV was a, by now standard, flat... More

Good location, clean room, friendly staff, great pool and hot tub, good location, and oh, so affordable. This was a good choice for Santa Fe. After a day of exploring Santa Fe, it was good to see so many good restaurants so close at hand that evening--within walking distance.

For a one night stay it is okay. Rooms outdated, but clean. Pool huge. Breakfast horrible. The breakfast room was hot. The biscuits cold. The gravy super watery. Otherwise, okay. Staff slow, but friendly.

Not a new or deluxe accommodation by any means, but the price reflects that. But you will not be disappointed. I was very pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail and cleanliness in the guest rooms and bathrooms, the sparkling indoor pool, and the well-appointed and supplied breakfast area. Also, despite there being several children in adjoining rooms, my room... More
