This is an older hotel, and I paid nearly nothing (especially for Santa Fe!), but it was full of lovely surprises and I will definitely stay there again! The rooms were large and very comfortable, nice and clean with kitchenettes, absolutely FABULOUS pool and breakfast area! All in all, a little nirvana on a budget!

15 minutes' drive from the Santa Fe Airport and 10 minutes from Plaza Santa Fe, Lamplighter Inn provides all the basic comfort for a bargain rate. Linens were clean and plentiful, and room service did not cut any corners. I was pleased with my hot waffle breakfast, and was impressed by the availability of soy milk. No shortage of specialty restaurants nearby - there's a Souper Salad, an Indian restaurant next door, and a Thai vegan place a few blocks away. Parking areas were well lit and overall it felt quite safe. In-room free WiFi was reliable. I had to check in late and check out very early, and the night staff and manager were good sports about that.

I would have given it a 4 but the noise level dropped it to a 3. Room air conditioner/heater, hot air fan, bathroom fan, neighbors, highway - all too noisy at times. Room was comfortable and clean, bed was good, breakfast was fine, price was good. Try for a room in the back sections, test the fans before you unpack anything.

This has to be one of the best budget hotel/motels I've stayed in! Adorable southwestern rooms, clean, with good amenities for a 1-2 star place (coffee pot, iron, toiletries, etc) huge indoor pool, good breakfast spread (with almond milk!), and even a ping pong table! I had called ahead to let them know we would be arriving late, and I felt really bad that I had to wake the front desk guy at 3am, but he was really nice and joked that he probably wouldn't see me at bfast the next morning. CONS: yes it is older and dated, but for $40/night... Also, the walls are PAPER THIN. Definitely ask for a second floor room so you don't hear the neighbors walking around! Also, if you are a light sleeper you may want to bring ear plugs. I will be coming back!

For a motel, this is a great place. The rooms are clean and comfortable, nothing too fancy but good for a night's sleep. They have a generous continental breakfast, nice area for ping pong and a great pool area. If you are looking for an inexpensive, decent place to stay, I recommend it.

For the price, we really didn't expect our room to be so nice. It was much nicer than some of the hotels I've stayed at closer to the plaza.
The pool was unbelievably nice.
And the breakfast was great.
