I'm from CT and was passing through Brattleboro VT on my way to Canada, I decided I'd take a night there to rest. The Lamplighter Motel is situated very close to many other hotels/motels but none of them beat Lamplighter's rate (Approx $30-35 for 1 adult, 1 night) With that being said, yes, the room is very minimal. If you're looking for in-room coffee machines, hair dryers, flat screen TV's and high-speed wireless internet, this isn't your place. However, I was just passing through and really needed a good night's rest. I didn't care about TV or wi-fi, however I was told that the wireless internet signal does reach some of the rooms. The woman in the office was super friendly and accommodating. Checking in was a breeze and she was very helpful. The room was clean and the bed was very soft. The bathroom had a walk in shower and plenty of clean towels and soaps. It is literally right next door to a Chinese restaurant, so it's very convenient if you want to pop over for some drinks or takeout. It is also on the same road as many grocery stores, banks, fast food places, etc. It really is a perfect location. Don't let the rusty sign out by the road deter you. If all you're looking for is a hot shower and a decent night's rest, definitely stay here. Why pay double or triple at Motel 6, Super 8, etc? Save yourself the $$$$. If I'm in the area again, the Lamplighter would definitely be my first choice.
