I decided to stay at the Lamplighter to get a flavor of the 50-60s style places that I use to stay at on my travels to and from Phoenix. The room was clean and everything worked well. It is not fancy motel, more of a Motel 6 style room. The price was decent and the free breakfast the following morning...

We stayed at the Lamplighter numerous times but not for several years. This was our last stay. The towels were thin (Bounty paper towels absorbed more - and that's what I used!) and 1 bath towel was totally ragged along the edge. The owner should be embarrased to have them in the room. Splotchy paint or spackle covered cracks in...

For an inexpensive motel, you can't ask for much more. No, not a luxury place, but the rooms are clean and it's actually pretty cool how they have the cool old light fixtures over the beds. The rooms are nice, with a fridge and a microwave. Everything you really need. The AC units work, though it's pretty cool at night...

We booked two rooms for two nights so we could ride the Rio Grande Scenic Railway's concert train. We loved the fact that after parking our car at the motel Friday evening, we didn't need it again until we checked out Sunday morning. The railroad was just two blocks away, a top-rated restaurant across the block, and the scenic riverwalk...

This motel is an old-fashioned place. It is not modern or fancy, but it was clean, friendly and well worth the price. We stayed in 'the annex' so we could be near the pool (which was cold but clean). The breakfast in the restaurant was top shelf, and the restaurant was friendly and cozy. We're glad we chose this motel...

I was disappointed with our recent 2 night stay here. I had booked based on TA recommendations and had made my reservation via phone. When we arrived later in the evening of our reservation - the price they charged me was $20,00 more than what they had quoted on the telephone - apparently they quoted me the winter price -...

We spent 3 nights here on the last leg of our vacation. Admittedly, we never would have stayed here if the economy were better. But, you do what you have to and still create memories with your kids! Best things about the Lamplighter: The free hot breakfast. Fantastic thick-cut bacon! Front desk lady at check in was very cheerful. Beds...

We liked the room...BUT, after making our reservation by phone...we found that the credit card number had been written on the reservation form. When we went into the office, someone elses reservation was laying on the counter...card number in plain view, no one staffing the counter, we had full access to that info. When we asked about our own number,...

We have stayed here four times in the last 3 years. The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable, the price is right, and the included breakfast is great! (Not just a coffee and danish, but a real breakfast; eggs, sausage, potatoes, toast.) The rooms are a little outdated, but that just adds to their charm.

Called around mid-day (when hotel are usually not busy). I ask to make a booking and the older gentleman on the phone said something I could not understand, followed by "can you call back later to make a booking?" (I manage a hotel in a different part of the state, if one of my desk clerks ever ask a guest...
