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

This hotel is pretty nice. The rooms are big, the bathroom is older but clean and nice the sink is separate from the toilet and shower. There is a small refrigerator in the room and a small coffee maker. It is quiet and you can walk the neighborhood. A Smith's grocery store is across the street. Plus lots of shopping... More

We were stopping in Santa Fe just for one night and found the Lamplighter on Tripadvisor. The rooms are not too small, and have a nice southwest feeling. The furniture is nice though a little big for the room size so it looks over crowded. The best feature was the bathroom, nicely designed and it had a shower that was... More

Our room was quite outdated, our door had light showing all around it! Good thing it was summer! There was an extension cord with three items plugged into it, It sparked when we tried to unhook it! Fire hazzard. Breakfast was fine!

A graciously sized room with bed facing the quiet courtyard welcomed us back. The bed was large and comfortable and the breakfast adequate (could use some protein). The vigas and high ceilings combined with large room aize make this a restful stop.

Divya at the front desk was extremely helpful. The enclosed pool and spa with the plants surrounding reminded me of Hilo! The rooms were clean and very quiet. All-in-all a great reasonably priced motel!!! I'll be back!!
