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

It was our first stay at the Starlite Motel for our annual fall foliage getaway in the Catskills, and while I would not classify this as a "Boutique Hotel", it definitely was a cozy, quiet place, and the many little efforts to make it amenable were a charming touch. Our unit had yellow walls, colorful bedspreads and while the overall... More

Thank you so much! We do look forward to your return. Enjoying the Fall Foliage is one of the many activities our beautiful Catskill Region has to offer. But if you prefer you can just kick back, relax and make yourself at home at our Starlite Motel. Thanks again. More

This is a basic hotel, but it was clean and acceptable. The beds were extremely soft though. Convenient location for hiking, which is what we were there for. There is a nice little breakfast basket for eating in the room.

We're glad we could be a restful and convenient place for you while you hiked around the Catskills! That said, we don't want to be just a basic hotel -- we want to take it up a notch and be as quaint and lovely as the mountain inn of your dreams! We'll be busy working on being worthy of a... More

I've stayed at the Starlite twice,the last stay being this past June. Both times,we made this our home for the weekend during Mountain Jam in Hunter. Spent very little time "in room",which is usually the case when I travel. Rooms have a full size fridge,and a working kitchen. The place is dated,but that didn't bother me. Comfy bed,and clean bathroom.

Where to begin?…. Chapter one: Arrived tired after 300 miles of great touring on our motorcycles.

By chance we found this place on our way to Belleayre Lake for a stop off on a road trip. It had everything we needed, especially the full kitchen. The backyard was great for my toddler and in the evening she enjoyed the fire pit and lightning bugs.
