The room was clean. The breakfast was ok. Their coffee, & breakfast had room for improvement. They had a ping pong table- which was fun, but they gave you only one ball, not even a real ping pong ball? I really loved the indoor pool, with gorgeous plants and a hot tub! There is a small, nice outdoor walk to...

Most rooms have a frig and microwave, as well as free parking. The Lamplighter is clean, comfortable, and a good value for the money. It's conveniently located...

It was our first visit to Santa Fe and Neil, owner of the hotel was so helpful that he made it worth staying in his hotel. We had to change our plans while heading to Taos due to snow storm and visit Santa Fe a day early, so we called the hotel to check if we can add one more...

After spending an afternoon at the terrific plaza downtown Santa Fe we checked into this property. Despite a small room which is dated we enjoyed a goodnight sleep and continued on our travel fully rested the next day.

Thank you for providing us once again with a clean and comfortable night stay.

A group of us stayed during the Balloon Fiesta when our hotel in Albuquerque fell through. The rooms we got were double queen. The rooms could have used a makeover and my bed kind of sunk in when I layed in the middle. You could easily hear the people upstairs, the ceilings creaked. There were nails sticking out of the...

This is an older motel. The front desk staff was friendly, the bed was comfortable, and the hotel was quiet, but there were not any other highlights. Someplace else, it would have been overpriced for outdoor access, modest updates, and minimal amenities, but in Santa Fe during Albuquerque's Balloon Fiesta weekend, the price was relatively fair. Breakfast lacked protein choices,...
