“OK Place, but noisy!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Just got back from staying here for 3 nights over a weekend. The room we had was average, not small and not big. It was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave and coffeemaker so it was well appointed in that way. It was in a good location, closer to Old Santa Fe than most budget hotels. The price was reasonable ($58.00 for two queen beds). The main problem was that the walls were thin and it was pretty noisy at night. Being a weekend, I could hear people talking and kids running and screaming and playing music. I found it hard to go to sleep. You could also hear water running when people in other rooms took showers, etc. The best asset was it's location. There was a nice little local coffee shop next door, and several other good restaurants close by. I think if I stayed again in Santa Fe, I would look for somewhere else.

so not ever stay here. Save your money, go elsewhere. Terrible service, no one manning the front desk. had a reservation and notified the hotel we would be checking in at 915. When we arrived at 912 we could not check in. Contacted Travelocity and got a refund for a different hotel in town.

We think place is tremendous value at less than $46 per night including all taxes Including a good continental breakfast. So good, that we added 2 more nights to a total of 4 nights. Continental breakfast includes cereals, breads, oatmeal, pasties and DIY waffles. All good.
The rooms are a little small, but given the available space they are configured to perfection. Pretty much everything that you need while traveling including a fridge with the exception of a microwave oven (but a shared one can be found in the lobby). A queen size bed is good for us and the room also has a small table and 2 chairs. Very quiet too if you ask for a room at the back.
Marvelous pool heated to about 25 degrees in winter.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs at the back.

we were very pleased with our budget friendly room at Lamplighter Americas FInest Hotel, well located on Cerrillos, closer to town than other hotels on this strip. Many restaurants walking distance from hotel, shopping etc. or short drive. Our room (#115) with 9' beamed ceilings and double queen room, was roomy, larger than most with a different configuration than usual...and well designed, two small refrigerators, nice bathroom, very clean, very quiet except for a few sirens on the weekend evening, warm, ample space for two or three persons. Heated pool, clean, my son complained about the depth as he wanted to tread water, he also complained about small noises in adjacent rooms ...I did not hear this though. Exteriors design look fine and conforms to area southwestern look with designed turquoise doors...nice. We saw one pet on the property, excellent cleanliness of rooms, very nice breakfast area, good food, nice ladies in the breakfast area, fresh fruit, danish and oatmeal, waffles, a lot of sugar no doubt, but you have to balance these things on your own. They offer apples and juice that is non-acidic. No discount for multiple night stays so we booked a day at a time since our travel plans were flexible and weather unpredictable in January. everyone has been very and supportive. best wishes in 2013 Lamplighter! 1/25-1/30/2013

Room Tip: inner room (rather than end rooms) and lower level are warmer in winter

Overall, this one exceeded my expectations for the price we paid. Our AAA rate got us a rate of around $50 / night. For that money, I expected average at best. What we got was certainly above what I consider an average stay. For starters, the staff were very welcoming and kind. The room was very spacious and had a nice layout. Vaulted wood ceiling on the top floor was quite a surprise. The breakfast was very nice, similar to a hotel chain but of better quality I would say. We got to eat on real plates and bowls with real silverware! The pool looked nice enough, we just didn't have a suit to go in and check it out. Felt very safe and comfortable at this one and great location only 5 minutes from downtown. Give this one a try, I don't think it will let you down!

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room for the high ceiling if you want too. Makes it feel a little different than...

I was unsure of this hotel as I did not research too much before we stayed here. We came on a very cold night. The pool is in a separate building than the hotel room so it was freezing for my boys and the pool steam/fog was so bad we could not see. I was sooooo pleased at the size of the room and it was so clean, very very clean. I would definitely stay there again. Good location and clean! The breakfast was ok, no protein options except 2% milk

By far the best of the medium-priced properties I've tried in Santa Fe. Large, clean, quiet room. Good location on Cerrillos Road. The continental breakfast is not quite as nice as last year, but still much better than that at the big chains. One minor complaint was that the internet connection should have been faster. I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask to not face Cerrillos Road for a quieter room.
