The Starlight Motel is a clean well run motel at the Jersey Shore. It is located across from Barnacle Bills Arcade and Mini Golf. The heated pool is fabulous and my entire family loves visiting every summer. We can't wait for this summer!!!!!

Love the updated pool! As always the property is spotless and provides great amenities for the whole family. We took advantage of a quick weekend getaway. Staff is always helpful, barrier island is really shaping up, and to feel the sand on our feet was exactly what we needed. So glad to see the starlight up and running! See you... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Starlight each and every summer for the past 25 years. We usually stay for 8 nights. The place has motel rooms plus efficiencies/suites which sleeps six, if you count the sofa bed. After Hurricane Sandy, I was happy to see that the Starlight made a huge effort to remodel all the...

After Superstorm Sandy decimated the Jersey Shore, particular areas were slow to come back from the disaster; Ortley Beach was one of those places, though not for lack and love from business people and family's that did not want their beloved Jersey Shore memories and families that returned year after year to not have a place to return. Such was... More

I have stayed at the Starlight several times over the years for short getaways. This year I was so thankful the motel completed all renovations needed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. With all the destruction still visable on the surrounding streets of Ortley, I was so happy to have a place to stay so I could enjoy one of... More

Short walking distance to the beach and a great stay with the extended family. No worries about the kids walking for ice cream or to the other very close food venues. Clean and surprisingly quiet, we highly recommend this well run and affordable motel. Nice heated pool and plenty of outdoor seating space to gather in the evening, we definitely... More

I was heading back to the jersey shore last weekend for the first time since Hurricane Sandy and after many years being away. I wasn't really sure what to expect. But we found a room at the Starlight and it was a great experience. First of all, I want to say that the owners were really accommodating. They have a... More

Location! Across the street from Barnacle Bills and 2 blocks walking distance from beach, ice cream across the street and heated pool on site. Hospitality! Kind, generous, helpful and kind. Cleanliness! Well kept property maintained with pride of ownership. Vacationed with my husband, our four kids and my mom. Suggestion for families... Get the rooms with queen size beds. The... More

Loved this place. Friendly staff. Very clean. Close to Seaside, Point Pleasant and a block from the beach. We stayed in an apartment and it was worth the extra money. Had a full kitchen. Cleanest and biggest bathroom at the beach ever.

Although there are many areas in and around Ortley Beach still devistated it is great to have the Starlight up and running again!! Michelle and the folks at the Starlight are a wonderful group. I have been going to the Starlight for over 30 years and it never disappoints. The renovated rooms are very nicely done as is the pool... More
