The motel is old but has been redone with comfort in mind. The rooms are large and include a fully equipped kitchen. There are amenities like a picnic table and comfortable outside lounges. I left my chargers at home and was provided with a loaner which was great. We spent two nights and will return when we are in the... More

We stayed here overnight during a trip through the Catskills. There were three of us with three dogs. The room was large with kitchen facilities. The shared BBQ area outside at the back was lovely, especially at night with the fairy lights in the tree and the lanterns. We were left a huge basket of goodies for breakfast the next... More

Friendly family run. Very clean room. Comfortable beds, full kitchen and bath. Very nice to walk into the room and find a basket of goodies and milk in the fridge. After a long day of hiking we sat out back (your own bbq,chairs and picnic table plus 2 screened rooms to enjoy)and cooked on the grill as the whole place... More

This is the most beautiful place, a home from home. The motel is surrounded by the Catskills, the view from our front door is stunning. We had the king efficiency and it was everything we could have wished for. Everything was so clean, tidy and well provided for. Our bed was so luxurious and we slept extremely well. We had... More

Spent one night here - could have spent a week. What a lovely motel -- the host is wonderful and the beds are heavenly! A great place to getaway from it all. The lights in the trees give it a whimsical feel.

Please do come spend a longer time with us. Summer's coming and it is just wonderful here in the summer. Festivals, train rides, Pine Hill Lake, hiking, fishing are some of the many activities you can enjoy by day. In the evening visit one of our world class restaurants nearby, plan an indoor meal in your room's kitchen or barbeque... More

Starlite Motel is a sweet little oasis nestled in the beautiful Catskill mountains. Run by Michelle, a most charming hostess, I felt welcomed and at home from the moment I checked in (actually from the moment I called to make a reservation!) The rooms are cozy and comfy, with a small, fully-equipped kitchenette, and have little special amenities (like lovely... More

Michele is awesome. The place is funky and cool! with laser lights in the back that shoot through the trees at night, and there's a chimenea. Beds are comfortable, very comfortable. The views in front are awesome

Rooms are the most pleasant. Plenty of food for breakfast or whenever, and the shower and towels are most excellent. A quick drive up the hill to ski at Belleayre can't be beat. And its dog friendly. My dog just loves Michelle and her crazy dog Buddy. I'm so happy I discovered the beautiful Starlite.

Best deal going, plenty of food for breakfast, which you can have when YOU want . Three thermostats, cozy warm. Out the door, 2 mile up the hill and your skiing !! Plus it's "Rancher" style (no steps) so you can save your knees for the ski hill ! !
