Lamplighter Inn & Suites
Okay, but a little more would be nice
Pros: Close to Cal Poly Slo - we walked to our tour of campus. Nice breakfast. Nice big beds and Nice that we had a multi- room suite. Cons: Toilet backed up on first flush. Our room wasn't made up - spent a long day touring campus and came back to a room with unmade beds and supplies not refreshed. Couch (nice to have one) was low and saggy. Toilet was low. Shower head was low (about to my chin). Would I stay here again? Not sure.

Nice stay at the Lamplighter
Lamplighter is in a great location on Monterey Blvd which is close to many attractions, walkable to a few restaurants. The hotel was very reasonably priced, but is in need of cosmetic upgrade, hence the price. However our room was very comfortable overlooking the pool courtyard (2 queen beds). Room itself was clean and in good condition, but a little cramped. Complimentary breakfast was pretty good - eggs, sausage, waffles, assorted baked goods, coffee, juice. Wi-Fi was REALLY slow though. We didn't the pool or spa however overheard a guest complaining the hot tub wasn't working. We usually stay at the Quality Inn & Suites across the street, however the rates over there were 3 times as much so for a 1-night stay this was perfectly fine alternative.

Quaint place
The beds were decent but the television in room 1311 was not functioning. I would stay here again just because of the location.

Helpful staff trying to support a dump of a property. Think Motel 6 with bugs and worthless Wifi.
