Summer Beer Festival Weekend Getaway

This place is nothing to write home about. But for the price we paid we expected nothing less/more.

Good for visiting Natural History Museum

We chose the Lamp Post Inn because we wanted something reasonably priced for a visit to the U of M Natural History Museum. We were fully satisfied. Without asking for it, we got a room with a kitchen. That worked well when we found that Trader Joe's was right next door. Lots of deli food and, of course a big beer/wine selection.

I wouldn't have my honeymoon here but it's fine as a place to sleep.

The hotel was fine for us, since we were out all day and just needed a place to sleep. It wasn't particularly special in anyway, but wasn't awful.

A good Hotel

Room was clean and neat. Smelled fresh. WIFI worked well enough. Considering the price of the other hotels in the area, this is a good value for the money.

Older motel but clean and quite.

An older motel with the basics. Had refrig, micro and coffee maker. TV had plenty of channels. Older TV. If looking for good value and don't need the extras or more modern furnishings, this will do. It was quiet and had a good two nights sleep.

Excellent Value

I have every intention to stay at these accommodations again. The value is exceptional, even if it isn't the swankest h/motel in the business. If you want your hotel to be the destination, look somewhere else. However, if what you want is a clean room/bed/shower at a good price, you'll have a hard time finding anything better in the area.
