I made reservations on-line after signing up for the Value membership card. Where can you stay in Santa Fe during the busiest time of year, for 55 bucks? This is it. Yeah, the outside gave me a little pause to reconsider, but inside, the rooms are super clean. I stayed here at the beginning, and again at the end of... More

This is not a spa. This is not a high-end hotel. It is an affordable stay in an expensive area that offers safety, clean rooms (seriously, the bathrooms all over the hotel and in the rooms were exceptionally clean), abundant free breakfast and even a pool and hot tub. The staff is very friendly, and they do their best to... More

This hotel is a fine tourist value and especially for the area. The room we stayed in was nicely appointed (albeit dated, but that is part of the charm) and completely functional. The Lamplighter is a bit down the road from the rest of the tourist hotels, but if you are driving this should not be a problem. The standard... More

Well, wish I had never tried out this place. I actually mistook it for a different hotel when I booked it and then was unhappily surprised to discover it was this. Right from parking which was odd configuration and blocked by a big truck, this place was bad. Check in staff looked like deer in head lights. Trying to find... More

I'm sorry that you didn't have the experience that you were hoping for. I apologize that it was hard to navigate around the truck that was parked out front when you pulled up to check in. We have guest stay with us that drive u-hauls and other various large size vehicles. It is stated in the review that you wrote... More

Clean room with friendly staff! Great value with a pool, workout facilities. Courtyard garden - many restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommended for a good restful stay. The staff goes out of their way to meet your needs.

Clean, convenient room. Divya was wonderful. We booked through an online company which overcharged us for the room and she was tenacious about getting us a refund. Location was good on a main road. Good value.

Chose this one from the ratings and price. Good value for the money. Next time I will take advantage of the pool and hot tub. Would like the computer room and pool open another hour. Excellent breakfast!

Clean and pleasant room. It is an older motel but well kept. It has a nice green space to enjoy the wonderful weather of Santa Fe. The room was fairly large and well laid out. The location is handy for the different attractions. Don't expect luxury but it is well worth more than we paid for.

This was a self directed experience for artistic inspiration thru my employer. We are allotted x-amount of dollars for this business trip which includes flight, car rental, hotel and food, etc. If you're looking for a budget hotel where you'll be stopping in at night to sleep this is a winner. Lamplighter is an older hotel in need of some... More
