Spring break trip found us stopping at around 9 PM for a room. We had 2 queen beds, a fridge and microwave, and a bathroom. Had a bit of a hard time finding a place to plug in my phone for the night, but I managed. This is an older hotel, but is still in decent shape and has been... More

We traveled over spring break with 2 kids, 11 and 6. Temps were in the 50s and 60s, comfortable to be outside. We booked a kitchenette room that included 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa. The room had a stove, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, small fridge, dishes/pans/utensils, table and chairs. There's a TV with cable and a DVD player. Continental... More

I have stayed at the Lamplighter twice on monthly trips that take me through Santa Fe. I only need a room for the night and this motel fits the bill. Its been clean, quiet and comfortable. Room lighting is adequate. Both visits, the rooms look to have been recently painted and re-carpeted. Check in has been fast with no hassles.... More

Spend a few dollars more and get something newer. How they got a 4 dots on Trip Advisor is a mystery to us. The girl at the front desk called the manager and he said we could check out and he'd refund our money. It was after 8:30.We got back from dinner and went to use the jacuzzi which was... More

We spent two nights here in late Feb. We were attracted by the reviews & the price. It is right on Cerrillos road which ends in old town and takes you to I-25 going the other direction,The rooms are a good size and quite comfortable. We were given a room facing the street on the second floor which is noisy... More

It has taken me 2 months to write this review. Our stay was 10 days at Christmas. Although the rate was "too good to be true", we should have realized what we were getting. ALL things considered, I think the rate we paid to be too high for the quality. Santa Fe is an old town, and most things in... More

Close to Old Town Santa Fe and Canyon Road with easy access to the North Country, Cliff Dwellings and historic Los Alamos. Friendly staff and lovely rooms. Lovely breakfast room with ample selection for all ... even Soy Milk for our cereal !

The building is a bit old and dated, the rooms are plain and so this is not a wonderful place to hang out, but it is a decent place to sleep and shower and dress if you want to save money to do other things. It was clean enough and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast room has a nice... More

If you're looking for clean, close and on a budget with a room that's just a place to land. do it. We loved it and our twin boys LOVED the indoor pool and hot tub. so close (driving) to center center. Just think 60's retro motel without room service and you're good. Very Route 66.

Owner/clerk is never at front desk. At any time of the day, the front door is lock and must ring the bell for someone to come from the back to help. And seems like we are the one interrupting them. Rooms are not updated, feels like I am back in the 70's. Rented a room with a kitchenette, was like... More
