Lamplighter Inn
Ranked #10 of 12 Hotels in Bandon
Reviewed 4 October 2014

This was the first night's stay for my husband and I going up the Oregon coast. The hotel is near the downtown. The hotel is older but updated and very clean. Our room had a microwave and refrigerator and the beds were quite comfortable. The price was reasonable. We would stay there again. The next morning a farmer's market was being held near the harbor area. We had a good dinner at a restaurant called Minute Cafe in "Old Town" Bandon.

I haven't ever been steered wrong by Tripadvisor reviews, but this one had me worried. I arrived in Bandon in the early evening for my golf trip, so I didn't want to fork over resort dough for my first night. As I drove by the Lamplighter Motel, I noticed the weathered, peeling sign facing the highway. Driving into the parking lot, my first reaction was ... "uh-oh". But, though I had reservations, I had reservations ... so I stayed.
Once I got into the room it was fine. Pretty typical for a reasonably priced motel room in a beach town. Nothing fancy, but a room with a microwave and a refrigerator. The bathroom was spotless and the shower water had great pressure. Best of all, the money I saved here just about covered my caddy tips for two rounds at Bandon Dunes.
In short, if you want a reasonably priced motel just down the road from the resort The Lamplighter will be just fine.

Room Tip: There is a market, a Subway, and a Golf Shop in the shopping center across the street from the motel...

Don't judge this book by its cover. Rooms are clean & well-maintained. Wireless internet signal is five by five. In-room fridge & microwave. Walk to grocery store, pharmacy, coffee shop. Friendly service. I will be returning to Bandon on business soon, and will absolutely stay here again.

Enjoyed the Lamplighter as I always do. Nice little old fashioned place. Nothing fancy but a clean quite room for under 70 bucks in Bandon is a real deal. Owners are awesome and will give you the latest fishing report to boot. We love this place.

After a bad experience with moldy overpriced La Kris $100+ I checked in to this very clean bland $60.00 room. Pleasant owner really quiet and comfortable. The High light of staying here was walking across the street to the Tiffany Pharmacy and finding treasure trove of super wines and chocolate. Wow! In a drugstore

Came in late night and left early. That is what I suggest you do if going through. Basic as basic goes and don't expect continental breakfast.Great dive at dive price. Definately check out Brewed Awakenings down the street for breakfast, a must!
