This is a VERY CLEAN hotel, we always enjoy our stay here. The front desk is right there for you and any questions you have. The rooms are very clean and the girls who take care of them are wonderful. One block from beach and restaurants in walking distance. Its great for family and everyone is friendly. Will return again....

Nice place, very clean and excellent location. Friendly staff. Updated suites with pretty much everything you may need in the kitchen. Since we were spending two nights only, I was gladly surprised to find out that they clean the rooms/suites everyday. Only two no-nos: the bed cracked every time you sit, just imagine tossing and turning during the night, pull... More

This was our 5th year back at the Starlight. As usual the Apartments were great. Everything for a family at your fingertips. Traveled with my family for a week and came back with NO laundry. I agree with the last review, the smoking. People have to have more brains, kids running all over & people just hanging around puffing away.... More

Overall, good place! The main problem i had was the fact that it's a family motel but almost everyone smokes cigarettes and cigars in the court yard and the balconys. You walk outside w your family and the smoke is constant day n night. Also, the ashtrays are all over and they stink. They should have a designated area for... More

We keep coming back, year after year. The first time- 7 years ago?- we were looking for another option to renting a house at the shore. When you only have a week, renting a house can mean a lot of time lost to packing and clean up. The Starlight has been perfect for us. What we love: great location, really... More

Second time staying here, and will come back for sure. Price was perfect, suites perfect for 6 or less, clean, perfect location a block + to beach, and stuff to do at night right across the street. The Music Man Ice Cream shop is only a 2 min walk down the road too.

Having never been to the area before, we weren't sure what to expect. By the end of our stay, we knew the Starlight would be our choice for future accomodations. The staff was gracious and knowledgeable. They went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience. The suite was spacious, clean, and well appointed. The location... More
