Lights are out at the Lamp post Inn

Hotel needs some work, and updating. The room is dingy, carpets are dirty and need shampooing. The towels are old and worn, need to be replaced. Staff was pleasant. This is the last time I will stay at this hotel.

Rather tired and dingy.

The room felt dingy, with old furnishings that were in need of repair or update. The whole place felt neglected and run down. The windows and door glass of the lobby were streaked with old dirt and greasy smudges. This set the general tone for the facility. The so called continental breakfast was 3 english muffins and 2 bagels on trays, and orange and apple juice. Next time I will spend the $5 or $10 more to stay at a newer and cleaner "chain" motel.

Excellent quality for the price!

I will return to the Lamp Post! Remarkably convenient - microwave and mini-fridge in room, Trader Joe's next door, easy access to the interstate/airport, on bus route to UM campus. The fixtures may not be the newest, but everything was clean and comfortable, and the staff was incredibly friendly. If you need a comfy place at a reasonable price, this is an excellent value.

Lamp Post Inn Review

Lamp Post Inn is a good deal on price. The rooms are fine and the staff is friendly and useful. The primary negatives for this establishment are the location and wireless Internet. First, the location is a bit far from campus and you should plan to walk around 30 minutes if you do not have other transportation. Second, the wireless Internet access was a bit slow. It's fine for checking email or other basic tasks. Overall, I recommend Lamp Post if you're a budget conscious traveler who doesn't mind walking or has a car.

A great value for the price. Having the refrigerator and microwave was wonderful. The location was great. It is an older hotel and shows the wear, but it was very clean and comfortable. For the cost it was a terrific value.
