Americas Best Value Lamplighter Inn of Santa Fe
Ranked #34 of 60 Hotels in Santa Fe
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Although the hotel was a little out of the way, we found a great Mexican Restaurant walking distance up the street. Hotel staff were helpful, room was clean, spa and pool clean, plenty of food available for breakfast. Easy enough to drive and park close to the action in the town.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the second floor. Timber floors made it a bit noisy until upstairs settled for be...

The owner/manager and his staff care .... they care for the guest - first, by providing a refurbished spacious room in which everything works, and secondly by going out of their way to try to ensure your Santa Fe stay will be as good an experience as you can have ..... pointing you in the right direction of where to get the kind of experiences you enjoy.
The Inn doesn't look ultra modern from the road; but it delivers where it matters - it's clean, quiet and totally functional.
The hotel layout is great and the design of the re-furbishment is very thoughtful.
We normally stay 3 star; this Inn is as good as the best 3 star we've encountered in around 60 hotel stays a year. It is undoubtedly the best value in Santa Fe. It has everything for a great stay; unless you want 5 star 'glitz', what more could you want.

Room Tip: Tell the manager what you want, and let him point you in the right direction.

Not another faceless motel. Little touches like lovely planted garden, pool area and pots. Interesting maps on the breakfast room wall. Great, clean pool and spa. Spacious super-clean room with comfy beds and good bed linen. Recommended - this place works hard!

This hotel was a very nice surprise. We have stayed in SF before, but this was our first time staying here. You can see they are working hard to recondition this hotel, but I like that they have kept from taking away the character of its original style, like the original tile in the shower/tub which was in very good condition in our room. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The back side is off the street and possible quiter.

The place was clean and comfortable. Nothing exceptional but I didn't need anything that nice since I wasn't spending very much time there. I just needed a comfortable bed, a good night's sleep, and some coffee in the morning. The bed was comfortable but the walls and ceiling are paper thin and the noise from the other rooms and outside made it impossible to get a good night's sleep. They have an indoor pool and hot tub but I didn't go in. The ice machine was out of order.

I probably wouldn't stay there again.

Room Tip: Top floor may be better since you can hear everything going on above you when you are on the ground...

No worries here its clean its down the road from a walmart and you can get a good night sleep there. Did not use the pool due to time constraints but it looked clean and as pictured.
I would stay here again.

Room Tip: we stayed in the back building second floor but would be nice to be closer to my vehicle but it was...

For the price, we were expecting an average hotel. What a pleasant surprise! Our room was huge with vaulted ceiling. Not all rooms are this big, but the rest of the rooms are probably very nice. Everything was very clean and fresh. The complimentary breakfast was one of the best. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would recommend this to everyone, but don't take my room when I come back.
