I have stayed in this hotel once last year and everything was okay. It was safe and relatively clean. However, I am currently trying to set up wedding blocks for my upcoming wedding and trying to deal with the Comfort Inn Lamplighter has been awful. I stopped in to the hotel last November, talked to a very nice man at... More

We have stayed at Comfort Inns on and off for years. This one didn't disappoint us although it showed it's age in places. The towels were larger and thicker than most others we had stayed in, the bed was comfy, and breakfast had more offerings than other others in the chain. The one bothersome thing was that as we were... More

You get what you pay for! Our room was clean and tidy, the window over looked the pool. We were only here for 2 nights and it was great for our needs. The breakfast is free, but slightly dubious!! Bacon and scrambled eggs from a microwave by the sound of the ping before the lady restocked the hot food!! But... More

The room as so old and out dated. It looked fairly clean, but it smelled old and musty. It smelled like they tried to shampoo the carpet but left it very wet and it never dried completely. There was only a little window air conditioner which could not come close to regulating the room temperature. We are always on the... More

Hotels were quite full in SBP this day in mid-August. Made a reservation at this Comfort Inn. The room turned out to be in sort of an annex out back, that might have been a converted apartment building. The place was a dump. Not only that, the was room was dirty, the bathtub had lots of hairs from somebody's previous... More

We stayed overnight in this motel. It is a configuration of two or three motels that have different names but share the same front office, confusing. Room was clean, staff friendly and breakfast ok. The place was reasonable, within walking distance of the SLO Farmers Market--recommend you you go there.

No one thinks to ask if a hotel was built as that brand when they book a reservation. Especially if they just book it on the internet as I did. I didn't think about that last word "Lamplighter", which meant nothing to me. Turns out it means that it used to be a "Lamplighter Inn" with none of the Comfort... More

Rooms were large but furniture and carpet need cleaning. Bathroom had odor like sons gym bag. Didn't want to sit on or touch anything, used towels to sit on sofa. Found black hairs in tub and sink. After tossing off the comforter, the bed felt clean and was comfortable, slept well. Several breakfast items had run out by 8:00 am... More

There's a good reason this hotel ranks so low. Among the many problems we encountered were the following. First, the Internet did not work, and despite our pleas for help from the front desk, all they could do was say "Well, we've had Internet problems in a couple of rooms, but yours isn't one of them." After two hours of... More

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel so it was a very pleasant surprise to open the door and find a huge and well-appointed room. Carpets and linens weren't worn out at all, everything was clean and tidy. Beds were very comfortable but what I enjoyed the most was the quietness of the place: at night all was silent, I... More
