This is what you expect from a motel room. Nothing fancy, but the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable, I actually had a great sleep. The room came with a flat screen TV and full cable. No complaints here at all. I have stayed in many motels worse than this, but not to many better. If you're...

Making a run from Vancouver to Edmonton, needed a place to crash for a few hours and book at lamplighter. I didn't make it there till 230am and it didnt matter, woke the manager and she was still just as pleasant as could be! Room was clean and comfortable. Was great for a pit stop along the trip!

In a world where people are more interested in making money rather than achieving customer service, this small motel is run with a fine ideal of small town hospitality. Needed a spot to stay, whilst working for a catering company and was welcomed with open arms. Clean room, great housekeeping and reasonable rates, Well worth staying here! So much better...

We booked a double queen room for one night. There was not a lot of spare room but it had obviously been updated recently and was spotlessly clean. Price was about what I expected and I think we got good value for our money. There was no breakfast included but it was near to a few restaurants so that really...

Not a bad little place. Clean, great hot tub jets and nice working sauna and clerk was nice. And right off highway so easy to locate. Room pretty small and tight, especially shower area and toliet, but quaint and was happy that they updated tvs and not tiny in size and not a super old school picture, actually have high...

We were pleasantly surprised with our room. Fairly quiet, king bed, lovely bathroom, free wiifii. Even though we were near the tracks and trains ran all night - we barely heard them. The only drawback was to keep the room cold enough with the AC we had to endure a very loud fan even on the low setting. Overall though,...

It is conveniently located off the highway. The rooms are adequate. You do get cable tv, a.c., and a kitchenette. The customer service was mediocre. Maybe it was a bad day but check seemed robotic or lacking care. I wouldn't give my money again. Didn't seem to appreciate the business and that I chose their motel over all the others.

I'll grant you it is a budget property but they do a reasonable job trying to keep it clean and comfortable. For me, price is a large trade-off as I get a limited LOA $ and mostly here on layovers as I work moving oversize loads at night (pilot car). I always sleep good, shower is great, good TV and...

“Ask for a renovated room. There are trains and road noise as they are just off the highway. Sometimes the fan or AC will cover it. We usually leave the fan in the bathroom on all night to muffle it.”

“Folks smoke outside but it's kept to one side of the hotel, so ask for the non-smoking side.”
