Nice to find an older motel (with the lower rates usually associated with them) that has been totally upgraded! Better amenities than many "new" motels. Every aspect of the room was modernized. Unlike many motels, the desk has power outlets and even USB charging ports right on the desktop. A great alarm clock, intuitive to set. Small but very clean... More

The room was very nice, the beds were comfortable, however the a/c is controlled in the main office and only have vents in the rooms. Being from Colorado we like to sleep in a very cold room. The a/c was set at about 70 degrees far to hot for us. We were miserable all night long. The bathroom is far... More

This is the cutest motor inn ever! From the moment you drive up and see the well-kept grounds, the neat paint job, and the homey and tasteful decorations around the office door, you can tell this is going to a nice place to stay. The room (#4) was on the small side, as was the bathroom (toilet, shower/tub), but if... More

Seneca was not our destination but wow, what a delightful surprise this little mom & pop turned out to be! It was getting dark, but even so we could tell it was charming from the outside, with white rail porches hung with lovely ferns. We were warmly welcomed by the owner ~ how nice to give your money to someone... More

We travel a lot and the Starlite has become our all time favorite motel. The rooms were all you could ask for in a home away from home. Clean, fresh, and so nice. The owner was very pleasant and went out of her way to accommodate us. The price can't be beat anywhere!

The Starlite is a great small town motel. The exterior is nice, clean and has road appeal. The owners are friendly and helpful. They are biker friendly. I love being able to park in front of my room. If you get a room on the front west side, you can get your bike in the shade. Speaking of rooms, I... More

I was driving across the country and got to Seneca, Kansas, around 10 p.m. Did a quick check of TripAdvisor ratings and drove to the Starlite. I was not disappointed. Very clean room, hot shower, fair price, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I tried to befriend "Molly" the dog, but she was a little too shy. If you're... More

This is such a unique and friendly motel! It was decorated so cute with just the little extras that someone would find at home. How surprised I was to find decorative sheets and pillowcases. It was so clean - the cleanest I have ever found in a motel! We were greeted with enthusiasm and the cutest Cocker Spaniel. It is... More

We enjoyed the spotless accomodation. The motel rooms are small but efficiant. The only downers are they only have two flat pillows on the bed and the mattresses need replacing or a pillowtop added as they are hard. Also they hsve plug in airfreshner that we had to put outside of our room becauseof sensitivity.all in all though cleanliness trumps... More

In this age of large hotel chains, it was a very pleasant surprise to find the Starlite. Lynette checked us in and made us feel as welcome as if we were long lost friends. The rooms are the older hotel sized but totally redone and immaculate. We really appreciated the in room coffee, microwave, and free internet, all at an... More
