When travelling through the US as a visitor you need to experience the traditional family run motels rather than the Corporate Hotel chains where everything is the same clinical, boring quality. The Lamplighter is a very good motel that gives you that US traveller experience. Of course it is not perfect but if you find a fault tell the staff... More

My husband and I have been staying at this Motel for two years, now. And we always find our stays to be very pleasant. Rooms are clean and quiet, and the friendly people who run the Motel are always prompt to help us with our needs.

This is a budget hotel that has reasonable prices compared to the high prices seen at the Holiday Inn Express of the Hampton inn. The rooms are all clean and the owners maintain the rooms and update when needed. It has in room WiFI which is great for a budget hotel as well as Direct TV service. The owners are... More

To be fair, it's pretty much a dump of a town, so maybe you shouldn't expect much. Still, this place is bottom of the barrel. As other reviewers have stated: * Paper thin walls. Can hear every single strange creak and groan from neighboring rooms. There will be many such noises. * Dirty bathrooms. * Tiny, junky little rooms. *... More

We stayed at this motel in July, 2014, we were on a family road trip and we made this reservation online. Obviously the site we made the reservation did not have recent reviews as we would have skipped staying at this motel had we known how bad it would have been. The room was smelly, people smoked on both sides... More

Arrived late at night after seeing many hotels in town were full. Toilet was unclean in bathroom (pee/ hair by hinges) and minimum amount of supplies were provided (two bars of soap and two cups). Also, toilet didn't flush very well although it seemed to be newer. Room was furnished with 60s/70s era fixtures with fluorescent lighting. (We nicknamed it... More

Maybe it's me, but Eureka seems a place to stop and rest on your way to some other place. If that;s the case with you, this hotel serves that function perfectly. It's clean, the staff were friendly- offering to move us if the wi-fi didn't work well in the room. As it turned out, there were some dead spots in... More
