Americas Best Value Lamplighter Inn of Santa Fe
Ranked #34 of 60 Hotels in Santa Fe
Reviewed July 26, 2014

This is an older motel, but which is well maintained and managed. The room was clean, spacious and contained a well prepared kitchen area, suitable for preparing light meals.

The aircon struggled to maintain a cool temperature and was rather noisy, but did not prevent me sleeping in the quite comfortable bed. The TV was a, by now standard, flat screen LG or Samsung as seems to be the case...

The best thing about this motel is the location, great for getting downtown or escaping to visit places outside the city. Conveniently there are gas stations and supermarkets/stores on the main road. This is a great base for a few days.

The breakfast was standard, ok, nothing special, but edible.

Staff were polite and helpful answering questions and saying good morning.

Room Tip: I stayed in the annex block over the road behind the Indian restaurant which was quiet and had plent...

Good location, clean room, friendly staff, great pool and hot tub, good location, and oh, so affordable. This was a good choice for Santa Fe. After a day of exploring Santa Fe, it was good to see so many good restaurants so close at hand that evening--within walking distance.

For a one night stay it is okay. Rooms outdated, but clean. Pool huge. Breakfast horrible. The breakfast room was hot. The biscuits cold. The gravy super watery. Otherwise, okay. Staff slow, but friendly.

Not a new or deluxe accommodation by any means, but the price reflects that. But you will not be disappointed. I was very pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail and cleanliness in the guest rooms and bathrooms, the sparkling indoor pool, and the well-appointed and supplied breakfast area. Also, despite there being several children in adjoining rooms, my room was very quiet, owing, I suppose, to the older building construction. Guess they don't build them like that anymore. The location is just a short drive to Santa Fe's historic Plaza, and for souvenir hunters, the infamous Jackalope is just a stone's throw away. It was darn near perfect for this bargain traveller.

For this money in this city at this time of year, feeling like I got what I paid for is a victory. Though my room would have benefited from an update, it was clean and functional. The staff was attentive. Breakfast was no great shakes but was free and in a large, clean space. If I'm looking for a place to crash on short notice while on a road trip, I'd stay here again.

I stay at the Lamplighter Inn in Santa Fe two to three times per month for work. The reason I keep coming back is the cleanliness of the hotel. The decor and rooms are dated, but everything works and the hotel is very clean. The owners are always very friendly and helpful. They always work with me to fit me in with my sometimes short term booking behavior.
In short, I really like this hotel and the people, it's one of the best values out there.

Room was small but worked for the two of us. Front Desk was very friendly. Very large pool and a hot tub.

Breakfast was continental (no meat), but Waffles and Blueberry Waffles, Bread, Muffins and Bagels, REAL PLATES and SILVERWARE (how rare is that?)

Where else can you find a Recycle Trash can in the room and a bottle opener in the bathroom? :)

Really, the Room was clean, bedding was clean and neat. Had a good nap after a hike in the mountains and a good nights sleep.

Exercise room with Ping Pong Table.

We would stay here again anytime.
