Found this hotel, more budget priced but good value for Santa Fe and 3 miles from Plaza. Free breakfast, waffle machine and the other continental breakfast items. Clean rooms, remember this hotel was built back in 70's or 80's but they try to keep things clean. Pool area pretty nice. We stayed in back row of hotel, separate building, wanted... More

Our visit at the Lamplighter was wonderful. The room was very clean and nice. My very picky daughter was impressed by the breakfast room set up. The pool was clean and beautiful. The staff did everything we asked to accommodate us. We had a very nice time and will come back again and again.

We paid $99 per night for this motel and that included free breakfast. This isn't a luxury motel but I'm giving it 5 stars for the value. The hotel is older which is obvious from the pepto bismol colored pink tile in the bathroom but it is very clean and housekeeping did a great job making beds and refreshing towels... More

Although old, this hotel was very clean. The room was large and there was a small fridge, coffee pot, and microwave. You can easily walk to the bus stops (about 10 minutes) to go downtown. Staff was personable and happy. They offer breakfast from 6-9am, but we preferred eating elsewhere. We would stay here again.

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 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 The rooms were clean, but a bit outdated and some of the lights didn't work.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
