I picked this motel after reading other people's reviews... very clean, nice and a comfortable room at a great price. I totally agree and would go there again. I was not looking for a resort but just a very nice motel for a short period of time. The excellent continental breakfast was a perk. We didn't have to leave the... More

Found it in our traveler's guide en-route. Our phone call, always my first indicator of a hotel, was welcomed by an enthusiastic Desk Clerk. He won us over with his pride and passion for the property. During this 15-day cross country road trip, we've stayed at half a dozen motels. This one takes the prize. The rooms are a bit... More

My wife and I really loved this place and it's super convenient to everything in Santa Fe. We stayed in the rooms across the street from the main building. We had a kitchenette with stove/oven, good-sized refrigerator and microwave. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was really spacious. I couldn't believe how quiet the room was...especially when you... More

This place really was a great value for the money. I used my Entertainment.com member discount, and saved even more. Like many of the reviews have noted, the breakfast was really far beyond the run-of-the-mill continental breakfast choices. Even the Yogi teas showed thought to quality and selection. We were staying during the off season, and I didn't find getting... More

Pros - Great location as it is in the center of town. We drove to The Plaza often but also went to the south of town. Just around the corner from College of Santa Fe. Cons - The bed was lumpy and what they called a pillow was flat. I dropped a cotton ball on the floor next to the... More

Thank you for your review. We updated many of our rooms with new mattresses. We offer our guest more pillows if they request them. We are always working with our housekeeping staff trying to provide the cleanest rooms possible to our guests. Cleanliness is very important to us here and we do not take it or any of our reviews...

We stayed here with a group of students and adult leaders. The hotel staff was incredibly efficient at check-in and had extra requests such as roll-away beds in our rooms almost immediately. The facility is great for a group with a fantastic pool area and good breakfast room. We highly recommend it!

We called that night to check if the hotel had them and it was confirmed by the hotel personal that, To quote what was said, "they vanished in mid air".

We work with our housekeeping staff to bring all items left behind to our front desk and we then contact the guest. We ship the item(s) to the guest if they... More

My room was large and clean. We had a fridge and a microwave. The hotel staff was very friendly and the checkin was very fast. There were recycling bins in the room, so I really like that. There were a few cons. According to AAA the last renovation was done in 1995, so there are a few things to redo,... More

The Lamlighter is a smallish motel about 3 miles away from the palza in Santa Fe. We booked three rooms there for a family stay. @ of the rooms are "Junior Suites" that are very spacious, have two sinks and a fold out couch. One room had two queens and the other a King. The entire hotel is very well... More
