“Extremely clean! Wonderful staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Perfect place to stop, very convienant location, extremely clean rooms and amazing staff. I left a very valuable personal item and they went out of their way to get it back to me. We will definetly stop here first next time we need a place to stay in Eureka.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

We arrived relatively late and were pleasantly surprised at the price, as we had stopped at several other motels and they were way overpriced. The owners were more then happy to let us view the room before paying for it, because we were a little hesitant due to the great price. The room was very clean, they had a new microwave and a new refrigerator in the room. The bathroom was clean and we were given more towels on request. The owners were very accommodating and extremely nice. We would definitely stay at the Lamplighter if we ever need to stay in Eureka again. Thank you Sunny for making our stay a pleasant one.

The hotels in Eureka are ridiculously over-priced, particularly for what you get. Save yourself the time and hassle of looking for something, and stay at this retro-motor inn. It is clean and the office management is very friendly. If you long to relive a night as you would have with your family in 1972... Pile out of the station wagon, walk right in to your room, take a big sniff of that classic soap smell, and you are home for the night.

Motel and rooms are arranged in a bit old fashioned way, which was not a problem for us whatsoever. Room was clean and had a big, comfy bed, bathroom was equipped in all basic necessities as well. The owner of the place is a very nice and bubbly lady which left a nice impression on us as well.

we were just passing through town and it was late so we decided to try this motel Our number one issue was that we needed a place that smell the fresh and clean. the room is basic with microwave and refrigerator but no coffee pot. the sheets were clean and the beds were relatively comfortable.
this was great for the few hours of sleep that we needed..

I guess the value was okay for a four person family.

The stay was a horrible experience. We didn't know the door didn't lock, which means when we went out for supper anyone could have walked in and stolen our property. No coffee in the room. Short supply of ratty towels. Could hear through the paper thin walls. The water pipes made a horrible squeal when the occupants of the next room showered. Uncomfortable bed. This is the worst motel I have ever stayed at. I hesitate to even give it a 1 star. Next morning I told the girl at the front desk the room wasn't worth the money. Her reply was she would make a note of it. Yeah right!

We stayed here and I was sadly disappointed with the condition of our room. The floors were filthy, towels tattered, shower floor rusty, and even a prior guests hair on the bathroom floor. On a positive note at least the bedding was clean and no bed bugs. We had to leave a cash deposit and our room was inspected before it was returned. I've never had that happen before. If you have the opportunity to stay somewhere else, definitely do so.
