The Lantern Motel has been a fixture in Paradise for many years and its room designs and appointments show it. However, we have stayed here several times and the rooms have always been clean, quiet, relatively inexpensive, and conducive to a good-night's sleep. A big plus when we stay here is that the property is pet friendly - without having to "break the bank" to get accommodations for both yourself and your pet.

Have stayed at Lantern Inn on 2 separate occasions. Nice older motel, nothing fancy, but very reasonable for a sleep over. Room was very clean, bathroom clean. Large walk in shower and Excellent water pressure. All ammenities (tv, clock/radio, refrigerator, microwave & coffee maker) all Worked. Wi-Fi available in all rooms. Bed very comfortable with Extra Pillows inside the closet. Staff was friendly & helpful, also was given the AARP discount. Outside the motel the landscaping is very quaint with gazebos and shrubbery adding extra privacy. Pool was clean and inviting. Smoking and non-smoking rooms available. Motel also offers discount at neighboring resturant. Motel sits back off the road, so there was no sound of traffic out on the main road. Would definately stay again.

My husband and I recently took a trip to Paradise for a family wedding and stayed at the Lantern Motel. We loved it!! The room was clean and it smelled clean. The manager was very helpful and very friendly!! The grounds were very well kept also. I would stay here again and again.

My husband and I had stayed in the Lantern Inn a year ago in July 2012 while attending my father's funeral. One of my sisters had stayed there many times before that and had always recommended the place, saying it was nice, clean, friendly, well kept, etc. But when she joined us there last summer, she was as surprised as we were at how run down it was getting. The pool was still functional and clean, and the property nice overall, we enjoyed a family gathering in the pool area after the funeral and were treated with kindness, and it was a very pleasant time. But it also seemed as if things were being "let go" a bit at that time, the rooms a bit dirty, and things looking a bit run down. And the noise between the rooms was very obvious - our last night there a mom had a small child next door and we heard every word as she berated him and he objected to going to bed. We had to turn our TV on loudly in order to drown her out. Even so, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the overall place felt safe. So my rating is based upon that experience.

Since then we've learned that it was up for sale this past Spring (April 2013), which indicates to me perhaps there are new owners. Which makes me wonder if the more recent unhappy reviews were caused by a change of ownership. I'm sorry this is so as the prior owners were very kind to us, but those reviews have caused me to decide on another hotel this time as I head to Paradise to visit my mother again this summer.

Room Tip: Get one of the Queen rooms at the back for more privacy and less noise.

The Lantern Inn doesn't even deserve 1 Star. The motel is run down and extremely over priced considering the condition of the rooms. The room was moldy and smelled of mildew. The carpet was horribly stained and the beds were lumpy and unbelievably uncomfortable. To make matters worse the owners were rude, condescending and completely unwelcoming. I could go on, but the bottom line is ... STAY AWAY FROM THIS MOTEL.
