As with the most motels in Santa Fe this motel is about 10 min. drive from downtown. It has a big indoor pool with deckchairs and extra towels in the room. A fitness room. Exelent breakfast. Friendly staff

What more can be said? We were greeted by the BEST check in help you could ask for. We stayed at Lamplighter for a week, the best value in town. I don't believe that the OVERLY priced hotels downtown have anything on the Lamplighter!!! This is our second time to stay with Lamplighter and plan on MANY return visits. Thank... More

If you need a nice clean place to stay without breaking your vacation budget, this is the place. It's an older motor inn that has been remodeled, and we personally prefer this type of lodging as the walls aren't paper thin like the hotels they build now. Our room had the beds against an interior wall so we didn't hear... More

This motel is a older motel, average from the outside, but a great place. Rooms are small but very well kept. Indoor pool a nice extra too. Owners go out of their way to accommodate you. Any restaurants or stores at your fingertips to include the outlet mall. Easy access, clean, comfy. I have paid more for less. We will... More

Should have called after hotels.com reservation and asked for downstairs king room. Very good value for Santa Fe hotel and room was nice and clean. Only problem was stairs and old knees for both wife and I.

You can't do better than this for $65 per night - rooms are clean and spacious. In room fridge, coffee. Lots of channels on TV. Pool and hot tub were wonderful after a full day of travel. Stayed 2 nights. Was nice to have breakfast. Biscuits, gravy, waffles, toast, bagels, cereal - lots of coffee! All in all, a great... More

Easy to find. Nice room - much better than the Super-8-level places I usually stay at. I usually find a few little maintenance issues that haven't been quite taken care of, like a faucet dripping slowly or a curtain that doesn't quite close all the way. No so here; everything just worked. Saturday morning in the hot tub was wonderful.... More

The Lamplighter Inn has the best accommodations that I experienced during my 2 week trip! I enjoyed my stay so much that I feel compelled to write this review. I arrived late, and was welcomed by a friendly woman who worked the desk. My room was spotless, and the beds were very comfortable. I like to pack a lunch before... More

The staff and the maids and maintenance, were outstanding, I have stayed there for 5 years on and off and love it everytime I visit. Meticulous, well kept. Great location. Close to the downtown plaza, very affordable. And the swimming pool is very refreshing. The clientele is international and domestic, very nice travelers.
