We had no reservations in Santa Fe but wanted to stay on ROUTE 66. We could not have picked a better motel for the price and last minute. Staff were excellent. Rooms very clean. Average comp breakfast. Great pool and atrium. I was shocked at how reasonable this motel was for all you get. Walking distance to Jambo Cafe, a... More

I was very grateful to this family owned business for getting me out of Motel 6. I spent about 2 days just crying because I had booked such a horrible place (prostitution and drugs ). Lamplighter had 1 king size bed for us!!! So happy and relieved. Beautiful plants all over. Nice little pool with greenhouse and landscaping. Unique. Good... More

Great budget lodging. Rooms are clean. Staff is friendly. The pool/hot tub in the atrium is great, although a bit cool in the winter. Breakfast is simple but good. Walking distance to great food (India House, Jambo Cafe, Jalapenos). They have a ping-pong table. Favorite budget hotel in Santa Fe.

We booked somewhere else the first night and it was a terrible experience! Pleasantly surprised to find such a decent place at a reasonable rate! Very clean, nice rooms. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We had a very comfortable stay here and it was reasonably priced. The rooms were clean, but a bit outdated and some of the lights didn't work. We also found the bath towels a bit smaller than usual, but okay. There is a good pool, even though we didn't use it. The breakfast is a typical American continental with waffles,... More

If money is an issue, this is a nice place to rest your weary head from travel in the heat of summer. Friendly reception. Clean large rooms simply decorated. Excellent AC and flat screen TV on Dish I think. Breakfast was skimpy and in a hot room--we went somewhere else. The bathroom linens were not the white fluffy ones, but... More

Last night of our road trip we booked here online. I wasn't thrilled with the price considering the doors are outside. The bathroom ceiling is covered with black mold. There was a dark hair in the tub. When I pulled the top comforter off of the bed there was a hair on the top blanket, when I pulled that one... More

The staff was friendly, the room was clean. The place is nostalgic - great when traveling Route 66! Had a good WiFi signal. The only real drawback was the road in front is undergoing construction, but hopefully will be done soon.

This place is a family favorite when stopping in Santa Fe. Clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. Not going to day it's perfect...You could nitpick small details...things that could use a touch up. All in all though, a nice stay. Good breakfast too
