My husband and I decided to take advantage of a break in the weather and ride our motorcycles up to Astoria, Oregon. I went online to find a motel for us to stay in for the one night. The Lamplighter seemed to have some good reviews and a reasonable cost. (The website doesn't give the room rate, you have to call to get that and make the reservation.) What a huge disappointment! There wasn't any of the "charm" that I read in the reviews from this year. The $75 + tax cost for the room was WAY too high for what we got. It was a small room that desperately needs an update. The curtains didn't close all the way, so we had to overlap the curtain and move the table against it to keep it closed for privacy. There were only two small lamps in the room with one bedside table. And though there was a small refrigerator and microwave in the room, there was not a coffee maker. ( I did know about that in advance.) There was coffee and tea (with some pastries) in the office that opened at 7:00 a.m. Sure wish the office opened a bit earlier. The location of the Lamplighter is good, but it's on a main street so there was a lot of traffic noise, plus some noisy neighbors, during the night. Wish I had read all of the reviews. The reviews from last year were spot on. The reviews from this year, not so much.
