Reviewed July 2, 2013

the staff at is great I've stayed there once a month for the last year they always make sure everything is OK very friendly and now even know me by name when I check in. The rooms are always very clean and very home like every room i've been in has had a mini fridge and microwave. Also if you get a club lamplighter card after 9 stays you get one night free that is really awesome. They offer a range of discounts to include a Military discount. which I really like since that's why i'm there once a month.

Lamplighter Springfield South is a very decent motel. Our room was clean and fairly spacious. We received excellent, friendly service from all the staff. And its rates are very economical.But it needs to be remodeled and updated. Then it will become the perfect choice in Springfield.

Not the fanciest hotel in Springfield, but it offers good prices, a nice outdoor pool courtyard and it is within easy walking distance of Cartoons Oyster Bar, a roadhouse style bar that we enjoyed. Breakfast is hardier than many free breakfasts, with eggs, sausage and biscuits and gravy, among other things. The hallways could be a bit stuffy, but the room a/c was fine. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: They offer Jacuzi-style suites with a nice, two person sized tub. These seem to be converted rooms...

Very helpful and friendly staff. Clean rooms, very very clean bathrooms, the continental breakfast was amazing. Managers on duty were helpful and knew the area well. They were able to direct us to some great area's that are not on the tourism guide. (especially farmers markets stuff).

Room Tip: Some rooms have massage chairs, amazing and wonderful

We stayed at this hotel during our recent visit to Springfield. The staff was very friendly, always smiling and willing to assist. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located with easy access to all local attractions and shopping. While we were in a room close to the street, and yes, street repairs were being done at night with a jack hammer and all, we never heard a sound. The complimentary breakfast offered more then most with scrambled eggs, hash browns, and sausage included. The on site restaurant was the perfect compliment to this stay. We will stay at this hotel on every visit to Springfield.

Having a son in school here we have stayed in several hotels in the springfield area, this one is close to MSU, we have stayed here 5 or 6 times. The staff has always been very friendly, we have never had any problems with unclean rooms, & the one time the tv didnt work they came in to fix it right away. yes, there is a strip club next door BUT to my suprise there has never been any problems with noise or groups of people outside. maybe a little parking issue if you check in late (11pm ish).

My sister and I regularly stay in hotels in Springfield, and I wouldn't go back to this one. We've stayed in cheaper hotels with better rooms and better service. A number of things in our room were unplugged when we got there or just didn't work at all (lights, the TV, the microwave and coffee pot). When we called the front desk to ask about the TV, the person who answered was very rude, making up reasons why our TV was just not ever going to work right rather than sending maintenance to look at it, just trying to get us off of the phone so she didn't have to deal with it. When she finally did send the maintenance guy (who was very nice), he was able to fix it right away. Other problems: The shower barely worked and flooded the bathroom floor. We could hear every noise outside - doors closing, people talking. We had a non-smoking room but it was right next to an outdoor exit to a smoking area, so it still reeked of smoke. There was hair and dirt in my bed when I pulled the covers back. It just wasn't a pleasant experience. The Ziggy's restaurant connected to the hotel is very good though. And their breakfast was also good - eggs, bacon and sausage, pastries, yogurt, juice, coffee. A lot of places don't have all of those things. BTW, because I see it in other reviews, the strip club isn't really much of a problem. It isn't loud, and there aren't people hanging around outside of it. It never felt unsafe to have it nearby.
