I stayed here for an overnight trip and was extremely satisfied with my decision. The room was quite comfortable and very clean.

Liked: Extremely comfy beds and pillows.

Liked: They give you a grab and go breakfast and there are lots of places to eat around. The parking and wifi is included. They have a clean pool. The water pressure for the shower is good and lots of warm water. They have a refrigerator and microwave.
Disliked: The original room we were placed in reeked of cigarettes. It smelled like an old Las Vegas hotel room. They switched our room right away, thankfully. The carpets are absolutely filthy. My daughter took off her sandals for 5 minutes and her feet turned black. At 3:30AM, a drunk girl from a room across from our building started fighting with her boyfriend outside our room. The couple had parked right in front of our room started to honk their car horn repeatedly startled me and my husband from our sleep. I, also, am 8 months pregnant with a 4 year old girl and a 6 year girl, which pretty much pissed off a little more when we called the front desk and they pretty much just sent the front desk clerk. He talked to the drunk girl, but she was still honking her horn for a good 45 minutes. This lasted until 4:15AM. The beds are lumpy. It cost a little less then the Airport area with better hotels. Very disappointed in the ratings and reviews. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy. People smoke Marijuana everywhere. The bathroom is small. No smart TV.

A San Diego gem!

Liked: The staff was so friendly! The breakfast to-go was a great idea and was a perfect solution to the covid issues. The landscaping is so pretty and the hotel is very clean and nicely decorated.
Disliked: The other guests were a little loud and rowdy, but that couldn't have been helped. The staff was perfect!

Liked: The staff was nice and helpful.
Disliked: I usually don't write reviews but my experience at Lamplighter Inn &  Suites was disturbing. The employees were nice, but they were short staff. Not an issue under normal circumstances but my experience was not normal. The hotel is supposed to be non smoking, but my suite smelled like an ashtray and there was a bug on the bed and the carpet was dirty. Thankfully we were able to be moved to another suite. Miss Elizabeth was very accommodating.  The next suite was clean and comfortable. One problem, my brother found a crack pipe in the armchair under the cushion.  I really don't have any words other than it definitely did not ensure our safety.  We also expected cleaning room services, but we're told we needed to request it, something not made known when we checked in. Not really a problem, but I would recommend telling guest upfront. The crack pipe really was the most disturbing thing I have experienced. It is the reason for the 1 star. I am really disappointed in my experience. I pray that your company hires more support staff and ensure your facilities are thoroughly cleaned. I come to San Diego at least once a year, but I'm afraid I won't stay hear again.

Liked: The room was very clean and comfortable. Access to the freeway was pretty easy. Basically a nice motel in an OK area of San Diego.
Disliked: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there was no hot breakfast available. We got bag breakfasts which were OK. The layout of the hotel was such that the room door opened onto a walkway so we had to keep our curtains closed the entire time for privacy.
