With the amount I travel I am always on the lookout for reasonably priced accommodation with a bit of character. It doesn't have to be fancy but it has to be clean, have a bed, decent shower and wifi that works. The Lamplighters met all of these requirements plus more. I arrived at the Lamplighter with my Kiwi friends after a long days ride by motorcycle. We were met by the ever friendly and cheerful Keli and checked into our separate cabins.the cabins were cute, a little worn but for the price a great place to stay for the night for us. We loved sitting out on the porch of the cabin on the hot summers evening, chatting with the other visitors, enjoying Keli' collection of four dogs and a cat and taking some time to washout bikes beside our units. The cabins had great flat screen TV's to watch the London Olympics before falling asleep. I loved the stay but readily admit that the Lamplighters wouldn't be for everyone. It has character plus but for those looking for a traditional motel experience with breakfast served in the morning in a common dining room it may not be for you. For me and my Kiwi traveling companions it was easily the best stay of our trip so far.
