For the price you can't expect luxury but what you can expect is the management to take a little pride in their establishment. We were greeted by "Miss Personality" herself who was obviously having a bad day. The husband must have noticed and came to the desk to help instead. After check-in carrying the luggage upstairs was rather interesting because half of woodstairs felt as if they were so rotten that my entire leg would go through at any moment. The room was clean enough except for the mysterious brown spot in the middle of the bathroom floor that was to be avoided. My kids and I slept fine but my wife mentioned to me in the morning that there were people next door having a regular conversation that she could hear almost every word of so obvously the walls are quite thin. The refrigerator did not work.
Perhaps it was the time of year but there is a strong smelling algae that accumulates in the little harbor next to the motel that has the aroma of a dairy farm but the view of the lake the morning we left was beautiful. If you are looking for somewhere to lay your head and take a shower without spending too much money the Lamplighter is accommodating in that respect but if you expect a continental breakfast or any sort of customer service just drive by and wave.
