The Best Western Lamplighter Inn & Suites at SDSU has been a family owned hotel since 1970. In 2000 we decided to place our hotel under the Best Western flag. Every Best Western hotel is independently owned and operated. With over 4,000 Best Western hotels, we are “The World’s Biggest Hotel Family®” - we feel proud to be a part of this hotel family.

We are on El Cajon Blvd., a historic neighborhood that was once the primary transportation route from San Diego to Arizona, before the construction of Interstate 8. Our neighborhood of Rolando, called this for its distinctive rolling hills, has a burgeoning restaurant scene which boasts many award-winning restaurants like Terra American Bistro, Bistro Sixty, Bridges Bar & Grill, Next Door craft beer & wine bar, Alforon Lebanese Cuisine, and much more! Our neighborhood is going through a major transformation, new commercial and housing buildings are sprouting up, bringing new energy to our area. We are very excited about this resurgence in our quaint neighborhood.

We are a modest, AAA 2-diamond hotel with a single-minded dedication to consistent service, quality, and value. We offer many free amenities that may cost you extra in other hotels: free wireless internet, free parking, free coffee and tea service all day, a thoughtfully selected free movie library, DVD players in all guestrooms, and a nice complimentary expanded continental breakfast that includes hard boiled eggs, fresh waffles, a variety of freshly baked bagels and pastries, cereals, oatmeal, fruit salad, juices and coffee.

Our positive reviews on TripAdvisor and other review sites are a reflection of our caring and hardworking team. From our housekeepers who work so hard to keep our rooms spotless, to our maintenance crew who are on top of potential problems, to our groundskeeper who takes pride in keeping our flowers looking beautiful, to our awesome front desk staff who are dedicated to providing outstanding customer service!
