This is your typical roadside budget motel. Those who have written complaints about it above are, I'm sure, justified in their opinions. After all, in our room, too, the TV was postage stamp in size. There was a sign warning about plugging in the refrigerator. Light switches didn't work in an intuitive way. And threadbare would be a compliment. Yet... More

Definitely could use some updates but overall good for a basic motel. The hot breakfast was very good. Full meal with coffee included. Bedding was clean and comfortable. No ice available and hot tub looked a little dirty for our enjoyment but close to Sand Dunes and good local eateries.

Obviously a budget motel but room was recently painted, furniture dated but clean, bed comfortable with fresh linens, towels older but clean. Room rate includes a made to order breakfast with eggs, ham, bacon, or sausage, toast, coffee or juice. Much preferred over typical continental breakfast. We would stay again.

We have stayed at the Lamplighter many times in the past but havent been through here in about 3 years. We stayed there this weekend and was very dissappointed. They have not done anything toward improvements. My wife wouldnt even used the shower. I did and it made the bedroom floor wet, major leak somewhere. The whole room was a... More

We picked this hotel because it was affordable. We were thrilled with the value once we got there. Clean, well maintained and just what we were looking for. Stayed one night as we were just passing through. It suited us.

We stay in 30-40 hotels a year traveling as a band. We came into Alamosa in June of 2014 for a show and the promoter booked us in this hotel. Normally we handle this ourselves. We go into the rooms late, after 1am. This is obviously a budget motel, so you shouldn't expect luxury. I do expect any motel to... More

All we would say is that the Lamplighter needs a new wick! Disappointed in the whole experience especially as it was our first introduction to small town Colorado. Can I say any more but avoid. There must be better in town.

We travel all the time on the bike, and stay at a wide range of accommodations. We do like historic motels and those with local color and charm. Well, the color of this place looked a lot better in its ads than in person. Color it run-down and no one really cares. The signs for the Lamplighter would be the... More

The lady who checked us in was lovely, so helpful. We looked at the room and it seemed worn but fine, no obvious mold or nasty smells. It also came with a hot breakfast. In the morning I had a couple of itchy bites so checked further into the bed. Yep, bedbugs. We told the fellow who was at the... More
