Visited here on a motorcycle and selected it based on location and value. For the past 15+ years we have visited Paradise on motorcycle trips. We usually stay at another motel. For the past few years we have have seen the rates increase while the services and amenities have decreased. The rate increases have made us reconsider our 4 times... More

The price is right! and you are way back from the road so you don't get the road noise like you do from the other older motel on Skyway in Paradise, this one is so much nicer. I have stayed here 3 times and will stay here again......the last time I stayed here was during the Johnny Appleseed Festival and... More

Our family was moving and needed to stay 2 nights at a motel. We were charged for 3 nights and are still waiting to be refunded 3 business days later. When explained to management that we were overcharged the lady at the desk blamed my husband and said he asked for 2 nights, when I spoke with my husband he... More

The Lantern Motel has been a fixture in Paradise for many years and its room designs and appointments show it. However, we have stayed here several times and the rooms have always been clean, quiet, relatively inexpensive, and conducive to a good-night's sleep. A big plus when we stay here is that the property is pet friendly - without having... More

My husband and I recently took a trip to Paradise for a family wedding and stayed at the Lantern Motel. We loved it!! The room was clean and it smelled clean. The manager was very helpful and very friendly!! The grounds were very well kept also. I would stay here again and again.

My husband and I had stayed in the Lantern Inn a year ago in July 2012 while attending my father's funeral. One of my sisters had stayed there many times before that and had always recommended the place, saying it was nice, clean, friendly, well kept, etc. But when she joined us there last summer, she was as surprised as...

The Lantern Inn doesn't even deserve 1 Star. The motel is run down and extremely over priced considering the condition of the rooms. The room was moldy and smelled of mildew. The carpet was horribly stained and the beds were lumpy and unbelievably uncomfortable. To make matters worse the owners were rude, condescending and completely unwelcoming. I could go on,... More

Went to Paradise to spend a nice Christmas with my family. I rented 2 rooms, I was quoted one rate on the phone and was changed another rate when I got there. She explained it was a higher rate for the Holiday, I guess when I made the reservation she forgot what day Christmas was. It was storming the night... More

I travel a lot, and often stay in motels, I rarely take the time to write a bad review but this motel was very disappointing. We stayed at the Lantern Inn for 2 weeks. Even though we were told that we would have a weekly rate by phone, it wasn't applied at check-in. We booked the room by phone and... More
