I have never been to New Mexico and this was the first hotel I saw that looked nice. The bed was so comfortable with like six pillows! It was great! Also warm showers and soft towels. It is the little things to me that make a hotel great. I highly recommend it!

We booked 2 rooms for our family of five and were very happy with our stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are helpful and friendly. Hot waffels and some fresh fruit for breakfast, nice pool and hot tub, etc. Great value. We had to make some unexpected changes to our itinerary and needed to leave a day... More

Rooms had a different theme than the ones shown in their professional photos; they were nicer. Pretty much perfect and sufficient for a family of four. It is always clean before entering especially on holidays, I suppose. The inn is located right at the center of Santa Fe downtown; convenient. The deals are also quite reasonable.

Nothing but good things to say about this place. Nice people, fast check in, rooms not fancy, but big and clean. Close to plaza. Breakfast was more then we expected. Rates, very reasonable. Would stay there again.

The rooms are pretty average. The breakfast is a little bit better than the usual. My favorite part of the trip was the pool though. The pool was in a really nice room, and the pool is much bigger than the usual hotel pool. The hot tub is also really nice too. Also it is close to the plaza and... More

My husband called for a reservation, talked to a woman with thick accent, she got all our information including the credit card number which was mine, said they're having some kind of weather-related internet interruption that night so we need to call back because their system was down and could not enter all the data. Again, this was after she... More

Check-in was fast and easy.The front desk personnel was very friendly. They have done some renovating lately. Our room was huge and had new carpet and possibly paint. It had a small fridge and microwave. The rates were VERY reasonable. There was a good variety of foods for breakfast: biscuits and gravy, fresh fruits, waffles, boiled eggs. They used actual...

As with the most motels in Santa Fe this motel is about 10 min. drive from downtown. It has a big indoor pool with deckchairs and extra towels in the room. A fitness room. Exelent breakfast. Friendly staff

What more can be said? We were greeted by the BEST check in help you could ask for. We stayed at Lamplighter for a week, the best value in town. I don't believe that the OVERLY priced hotels downtown have anything on the Lamplighter!!! This is our second time to stay with Lamplighter and plan on MANY return visits. Thank... More
