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Our room was quite outdated, our door had light showing all around it!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!!

Stayed at this establishment in the past and has yet to disappoint me. The face of establishment is questionable however the court yard and grounds are very well kept. The rooms are clean.

We came here last year for our honeymoon. So we wanted to stay this year for our 1 year anniversary. We stayed in the same room with some nice updates. The pool and spa are great. Nice and clean. Our room was across from the pool. You can't go wrong for the price. Well worth staying here.

Have been staying at this hotel since the 80's, Unfortunately, it's really gone downhill since Best Western sold it to America' Best Value chain. The rooms themselves are clean and fairly quiet when you stay on the courtyard side.

I read the reviews and having stayed in a really good motel of the same chain in Farmington, went ahead and booked. The room was clean and contained everything you'd need BUT it was small, dark and poky. For example the microwave and coffee maker was right next to the handbasin and therefore the toilet. Yuk. There were two planks... More
