Enjoyable stay

This was a very enjoyable stay at Best Western Lamplight Inn & Suites at SDSU. Our stay was very relaxing. It would have been better if there was a jacuzzi and if the neighborhood was just a little nicer but can't complain too much. Overall it was a good trip.

Excellent value and service!

The reception and housekeeping people in this hotel are great! The room was quiet, clean and nice, the kitchenette a great addition. The hotel is about 1 mi from the highway, quiet and easy to get to. The neighborhood is not that great.. We would definitely return.

Highly recommended

The staff were friendly, the room is very clean, the microwave and the fridge are clean too, the place was well maintained. The most important thing is we all felt safe staying at this hotel. Restaurants, mall and other stores are walking distance. They also sell tickets to some attractions at a discounted prize. The only thing is you have to make sure you purchase it ahead of time. Only the manager can sell it. It just so happened the day I want to purchase some tickets, the manager was coming late. That is not a problem if you are going to the attractions later but for us, that was the day we wanted to go to the zoo early. The free breakfast was excellent too. You get your money's worth with this hotel.

it was being renivited at this time.

The room we were in was to small the vanity was right in the room not seperate. the cleaning lady kept demagnitizing our key card. every day after being out we had to go get new key cards it was quite frustrating we at first thought it was us but did all the things they told us to do and it kept happening so it had to be the cleaning lady. They only changed our sheets once in our 5 night stay.
