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.

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. The place was closed with a handwritten sign on office door saying "Welcome….key in door" Parked our bikes next to two rusty dented children's bicycles…and emptied all our bags and began to settle in for four nights (which had been booked in Februrary…7 months...

Again, I am truly sorry for the mix up and accept full responsibility for not having your reservation from the third party booking engine. I understand your horror. It was my biggest nightmare come true. I had wished that my apology in person and my offer to comp your stay for the long weekend, would have given us the opportunity... More

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.

You really have to wonder where previous reviewers have stayed before when they use the words charming and delightful to describe this motel. This place is beat. Clean, but beat. We, too, had an awful smell in the room which I believed to be carpet cleaner/deodorizer trying to mask the smell of urine. Think about it, this motels allows dogs.... More

The smell in the room from some kind of cleaning or deodorizing chemical caused me to have bad sinus issues.. Very iiritating! The breakfast basket is a joke ... real bad cereal, hard bagel and some strange muffin. We didn't touch anything in the basket. The backyard is disgusting, lights don't work , everything is rundown.. flat pillows on the... More

This was our second stay,and as delightful as the first. The rooms are homey, with a basket of goodies awaiting road weary travelers upon their arrival. The kitchenette has everything you could need, including wine glasses and a bottle opener (and a fresh quart of milk on the fridge!). Wifi is good (don't expect phone reception as you're in a...

My wife and I, along with two other couples, stayed 3 nights in the renovated house associated with the Starlite Motel in Big Indian, NY in the Catskills. It was clean, spacious, and had very comfortable beds. Most all the needed conveniences were included. The flat screen TV set-up was a little difficult to understand and the water pressure for...

The room was a little smaller than I thought, but clean. People were very friendly. It was quiet, but near fun things to do. The person who runs the hotel was very helpful and worked with us to find things to do. There is phone service, butit was a little spotty.
