Guest reviews

  • Single

    I really appreciated the small touches - curved shower curtain rod, soap dispenser, hair dryer/iron in room, comfortable bed. Service was excellent, without being intrusive, the room was clean and quiet, the grounds were lovely. Breakfast was excellent. I will definitely stay at Lamplighter whenever I stay in Santa Fe, and recommend it to others.

    I have no complaints about anything.

  • Older travelers

    The price was great, nice and clean large room, no noise.

    The room was clean but the room seemed a little out dated.

  • Single

    Pool area was great. Room was clean except for carpet--socks became very dirty when worn with out shoes in room. . Complimentary breakfast good first three days but then lack of variety was very noticable. All interactions with hotel personnel very cordial and friendly. Good location-- convenient to shopping and easy access from major road. Would stay here again when in area.

    Pool towels barely adequate. Beds not very comfortable

  • Group of friends

    A nice indoor heated pool and jacuzzi that has skylights that open to look at the sky. It also has a varied and large continental breakfast. It was clean and the staff friendly.

  • Group of friends

    Bed exactly what I requested, air already on, room ready for you to relax. No shortcomings and the price was excellent.

  • Older travelers

    The bed was very comfortable. We liked the wood ceilings, the hidden bath (behind a wall) and the grass courtyard.

    We had a very loud Spanish family logged in the room next door for one night. They kept their television blasting until after midnight. This same group of people (or their friends) were knocking on our door by mistake at 6am. I can't say we'll be back because of this, but otherwise you get very high marks. Good luck.

  • Single

    The staff was excellent and the room was clean.

    The outside building could use a makeover considering the $80.00 fee because it had the appearance of a Motel 6. The breakfast was also not that great. I am not asking for some elaborate breakfast, however, I am asking for some variety. Other that those small things my stay was very pleasant and would consider staying there again.

  • Older travelers

    The Location, the fact that I'm familiar with it as we have stayed there several times before and I used to work there as a night auditor back in the 80's.

    Our room was too far from the pool/hot tub. Did not use, this time. It took awhile for staff to answer the phone at the front desk, but once they did answer they were very helpful. They have very bad coffee in the rooms and the coffee in the breakfast room is even worse. There is a coffee shop located in the parking lot but they don't open until after 9:00 AM, Who needs coffee by then?

  • Older travelers

    The site was clean and comfotable with helpful employees

  • Older travelers

    We selected ur motel based on the picture of the swimming pool and the hot tub. Hot tub didn't work. The pool was better than ok. The room was clean. Overall the price for the room and associated ambiance was equal. The breakfast was good the service people were very cordial... I probably would look for a nicer room and ambiance for another 30 dolloars..

  • Older travelers

    We appreciated the use of actual china at breakfast - there were real coffee cups and china bowls instead of syrofoam. That made for a pleasant breakfast experience and the breakfast was very nice.

  • Older travelers

    We especially enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. The courtyards with tables and chairs were also very nice. Coffee in the breakfast room was good. I was also impressed with the helpfulness of the staff as I had to call them nearly every day before our arrival and everything worked out well.

    No major complaints. My partner had just had a hip replacement and was looking for a toilet seat that was higher than usual. It might be nice to have a couple of seat raisers or above toilet seats available for just such cases. The toilet in our room was low lying. Just for interest -- a friend was staying at the Lamplighter -- he used to work there in the 70's as desk clerk and then restaurant manager. He was impressed with how well the place had been kept up.

  • Older travelers

    Retro vibe, old motel in great shape. Room was small, but very comfortable. Great indoor pool and nice grounds. Perfect for what we needed.

  • Older travelers

    Swimming pool was a must in June and it did not disappoint

  • Family with children

    All of he front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The towels were soft. Our room and the property were clean, well maintained. This motel had character not found in the newer chain motels. The breakfst room was large with lots of space to manuver. Excellent coffe and a good breakfast.
