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 ! !

The Starlite is always a pleasant place to stay. The rooms are clean and efficient. If you arrive early in the morning or late at night, there will be a note on the office door with your name and room number with a receipt and a voucher for your lift tickets. You can park right in front of your room... More

Clean and comfortable It was our second time staying here. They recently remodeled and have free wi-fi! Dog friendly and very close to Belleayre for skiing. We love it here, we will be back next year.

The Starlite is a small, dirve up to room, owner on sight motel. Our stay was for skiing at Bellayre Mountain which is a few minutes and 1 turn away. The room, especially with a kitchenette, was a fantastic value. If you are looking for glitz, glamour, swimming pools and inhouse restaurants/bars then this is not your place. If you... More

We were looking for a place in the Catskills close to Hunter Mountain where we could spend 2 nights. On a previous trip we had passed the Starlight Motel and subsequently googled it and made a reservation. The Motel is small, just 8 rooms, but it was perfect for what we needed. The room was on the small side, but... More

My boyfriend and I rented a room here since it is so close to Belleayre ski mtn. It doesn't look too great from the outside but the room was so clean and cutely decorated. It gave us just enough space to hang out and get ready. We were very thankful to have the full kitchen, it was small but it... More

Whenever someone recommends us to others, we take it as a big compliment. So thank you for the kind words, Chelsea. I'm so happy you were able to get cozy and make use of the full kitchen, It's always better to feel like you're living in a space and not just staying there, isn't it? Plus, when we're so close...

Me and my wife came to upstate New York for a ski trip to Belleayre Mountain, and decided to stay the night before to get an early start. We chose Starlite over other resorts because of the reviews and the fact that they participate in the Ski & Stay. Needless to say to didn't expect much as we were just... More

I want your stay to feel like you're at your home away from home -- complete with a stocked kitchen, cable, and wifi. So glad you enjoyed all of the little touches! Plus, with Netflix, Amazon and HBOGO, how can you go wrong? I hope you and your wife were able to get in plenty of runs at Belleayre. You... More

The kitchen was excellent. We ate out a couple of nights but it was great to cook in the room and have the housekeeper clean up the next morning. This is the best motel in the Catskills. I will stay here again during skiing season. We are here hunting now.

Wow. The best motel in the Catskills? You make my day saying things like that! Glad everything was comfortable and homey for you -- that's what it's all about. There's plenty of snow on the Mountain already, and more on its way! It looks like we'll be seeing you again soon! Take care, Michelle O., Owner More

Very clean lodging and maintained grounds. The units have a kitchen, continental breakfast basket provided each day with coffee, granola bars, bagel, muffin, and milk in fridge. Through the kitchen you can access the back of the property which features multiple colorful tables, a Weber charcoal grill for all units, one communal gasses grill and a fire pit. Fire pit... More

Thanks for the fantastic review -- it sounds like you were really able to do a lot while you were here! Glad the breakfast baked goods could hit the spot. Also, we hope you were able to get outside plenty and enjoy the backyard fire pit, let alone all of the beautiful trails through the Catskills. It was a pleasure... More
