This is a lovely hotel. The front office staff (Miriam) was friendly and helpful. Nicolas at the breakfast bar was super nice. The hotel was clean. The bed was comfy. We always stay the night before we go in to Mexico at the border. This will be our new San Diego hotel.

My husband and I have enjoyed our multi-night stays at Lamplighter several times, with more visits scheduled. We rarely write reviews, but this venue deserves a big shout out! Why? -For reasonable rates, we enjoy clean, pleasant lodging with better service than much more expensive options. -The friendliness of the staff evokes a feeling of being treated like family. It’s apparent that the staff - from management to housekeeping - are dedicated to this independent, family-owned business. -The grounds are beautifully maintained, with exceptional flora and a lovely pool environment. -There is a fine breakfast available daily and coffee and tea service available round-the-clock. -The college area neighborhood is hopping and seems to be experiencing a resurgence of new business. As in many large city locales, a homeless population is scattered about, but we’ve never felt unsafe in this sweet little island of coziness. After 20 years of frequent visits to San Diego to visit family, this is our new home-away-from-home. Thank you Lamplighter Inn family!
Great San Diego Hotel

The Lamplighter Inn is our "go to" hotel in San Diego after staying at other hotels in town. Local ownership makes all the difference - friendly and welcoming staff. Appropriate and good tasting breakfast offerings. Beautiful grounds and pool. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable - some rooms offer full-sized kitchen appliances. Great A/C. Very good pricing. Close to I-8, SDSU and San Diego highlights. Safe parking. This is like staying at your best friends house!
Best Price we found available on trip.

Check in was a breeze, the front desk was polite and energetic, made us feel welcomed. Had a smile and informed us about our stay. Parking was a little tight though but we were lucky to get a good spot. Our room was right near the office so we didn't have to wander off too far. The room was great with a kitchen (did not expect that) Restroom was spacious and the sink was outside the restroom so that's a plus. There was only one ice machine and that was by the pool area. So it was quite far especially for an evening walk(not too big of a deal though) . Night activity was calm but it resides on a main street so there is alot going on but wasn't too bad on our trip. There were a couple of shady people but it was a come and go type of situation so They didn't stick around. Next day breakfast was basic but convenient ( least it's something) ranging from cereal, pastries to hard-boiled eggs and yogurt. Weather was great. Love the gloomy weather (cloudy and fresh) . Check out was quick, that front desk lady was also polite and made sure we had a great stay. Would stay again if I were in the area.
Excellent place to stay!

My family and I stayed at the lamplighter Inn the past two weeks waiting for our house to be ready. My mom and I stayed in a two bed and sister and her family stayed in the family suite. The rooms were clean and comfy when we arrived after an exhausting road trip. Cable television with a couple movie channels, even a DVD player and DVDs available in the office. The landscaping is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Hibiscus, roses, birds of paradise so many gorgeous plants. Pool was heated and clean! Even a little smoking area available and pet friendly. I really can’t say enough how pleasant our stay was. The housekeeping was efficient and super friendly. The employees in the office were amazing so warm and inviting and willing to help with anything. Nancy at the front desk is wonderful! I’m trying to remember other names. Even the maintenance guys were helpful and very kind. Close to any store or food you could ask for and when I needed any extra napkins or cups or anything anytime of day or night the employees were always accommodating and willing to help with a smile on their face. We will definitely be back whenever we need a place to stay and absolutely recommend this place.
