An old Lamp Post

If you are looking for a place to sleep, this is a great value. We had bagels and coffee in the morning; could have added oatmeal, but we didn't have time. Old and worn, but clean; and the staff was very friendly.

Good for short trip

If you need an inexpensive simple place to stay and will not be in the hotel much, this would be okay

Eh.. there are better places

I work while I travel and require a bed, bathroom and decent wifi and work are -- and that's about it. The wifi was lousy -- certainly not what's expected in 2013. It couldn't even handle netflix. The work table -- rickety. I won't be coming back.

nice people, poor room

The people running this hotel are nice, but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. The walls are very thin, and I had to listen to a domestic dispute all night long. The refrigerator in the room was old, dusty, and having mechanical issues that late at night kept waking me up. The coffee pot in the room was okay, but had not enough sugar and cream for the pot. The continental breakfast was poor. The orange juice was powdered, reconstituted juice (at least that`s how it tasted) and the coffee was terrible. The second day I didn´t even do the continental breakfast. Also, the cable in the room didn´t work, and the wireless internet didn´t work right.

Tired, but Clean

The property looks tired, but the room was clean. There was a Trader Joe's next door and a very nice park a block down Washtinaw. Internet connection is sporadic.

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.

Inexpensive motel stay

The Lamp Post Inn was very inexpensive to stay, but uncomfortable to relax. There are what appears to be many long term residents. I was worried about security on the doors (no chain) & the security of my vehicle. The people working there did a good job but I was worried about the clientele of the premises. The room was clean (I hope) but needed routine maintenance. The pool is an open hole with little pools of old water in it. Obviously not used for quite a while. I stayed one out of the two nights & left early. I like the price, but would feel more comfortable staying at an inexpensive chain hotel for a few dollars more.
