Dear Americas Best Value Lamplighter Inn, I am sorry that I had not responded sooner, but we had some family illnesses. I am writing to tell you of the most fabulous experience I had as far as motel stays. This hotel was so clean and the staff was superb. I can’t begin to express the feeling of home that I... More

This was a place to rest our heads. The reception staff was friendly, but not overly familiar with the local area, whence was not able to assist us much with our questions. Breakfast was adequate at best, service lacked in the kitchen. Wifi very slow. Still an okay stay.

Old and rundown but with a certain coziness. Staff is very nice and pool though looking old was nice. We didn't do breakfast but it looked rather bland. Rooms are OK. I was kinda disappointed with this place due to the relatively high price. Restaurants are right next door and a lot of Mexican food.

My mother and I stayed two nights here and we had an amazing experience. We had a bad day and the experience at the hotel made up for the troubles we went through during the day. The indoor pool and hot tub were great! Plenty of space and the fact that it was indoors was so convenient. The room was... More

Clean rooms. Air con is noisy but at least it's there. Laundry facilities. Great location, across from a supermarket and on the main bus line. Great value for money in our opinion. Beds could be more comfortable. Nice pool out of sun. Would stay again

We chose this hotel because of its location and price. The outside of the hotel is not pretty. There is no landscaping and the parking lot looks disorganized. The railings could use paint. The inside of this motel was a good surprise! The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and had no weird odors. We originally had booked... More

The Lamplighter is a very good value - compared to the more typical high-priced Santa Fe hotel options. The hotel is dated, to be sure, but is immaculate, spacious, very comfortable beds, and offering a nice breakfast. The lovely 'indoor' pool is like a greenhouse, with skylight panels opening to the sun for those who want to bronze! A ping... More

We were looking for a motel in Santa Fe just to sleep and found the Americas Best Value Lamplighter Inn a very good value. The hotel is older but the grounds and rooms are kept up very well. The indoor pool is large and so is the breakfast room, which was never crowded. The hotel features a play room with... More
