Stayed a couple nights with my family. Nice place at the beach. The cleaning staff took a long time to clean the rooms (they don't speak English and were on their phones when I asked them how long it would take to be clean - it was past 1) but after I spoke with them it was don't promptly and...

We stayed at the lamplight at the end of August, our room was dated but after all I think is better than some other options in the area. So,If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in and are not looking for anything fancy, this is the place to go.

Always a great place to stay. Friendly family environment. Staff goes out of their way to please their guest. Clean rooms and their surrounding grounds are kept to the highest standards. Pool is just the right size. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Would and have gone back in a heartbeat. Totally relaxing. Convenience of the beach only...

We visited Lavallette the week of July 11th with another couple and stayed at the Lamplight. Once again, we had a terrific stay. We stay in the same room every visit and it was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. The management is terrific too. They made us feel like members of the family, always making sure there...

Had a great weekend at the shore for July 4th. The staff were very nice, helpful and friendly. All of them. The rooms are dated though are bathroom did seem to be updated. It was clean. Was it the nicest looking room in the world. No. Was it plush? No. Did it serve the purpose of being 1 block from...

The rooms were dated, the pool was ice cold,and the parking is for compacts only. Yet you will not learn of these facts until you've laid down the credit card and paid. The highlight of our stay was when we returned to our room after a couple hrs. at the beach to find my wife's ring gone. We immediately reported...

I wasn't going to respond to this, because we both know you did not lose rings in that room. I have called the Police and checked on our Camera's, and no one entered your room. What kind of resolution were you expecting? Did you want us to pay you for a new ring? If I lost a ring in a...

Let me start by saying the staff at this place couldn't be more pleasant.....I have stayed here a few times over the years, this was the first time since their "Sandy Remodel" I have to say, I think they missed a good opportunity to really change this to a nice boutique motel. It is very appealing from the outside and...

Unfortunately our "Sandy Remodel" did not include the 2nd Floor. If you took the time to ask, I would have been more that happy to tell you exactly Where our remodel was. We needed to gut the entire 1st floor of the motel. All new Marble (yes it is Italian) all new bath fixtures, all new electric, sheet rock walls,...

Stayed at the Lamplight more then once this summer, and if my boos would have let me take more vacation time it would have been more. Staff is friendly and accommodating, rooms are very clean and comfortable. Between the beach and the pool there is always a way to enjoy the sun. Never have to get back in the car...
