Nice place to stay with reasonably big rooms. Great bathroom with plenty of room in the shower. Only room on our holiday that had a microwave. Room was a bit noisy from the traffic driving past. I've read other reviews about noisy neighbours, so I really hope that there was nobody in the rooms around us as my son cried... More

I have stayed at several other places in Roma but kept coming back to the Starlight. Reasonable rate, friendly service, comfortable bedding and linen, fresh and delicious vegetables with meals, microwave in room, laundry room, and convenient location have made me look no further when choosing accommodation in Roma.

Wow...thank you so much for your very kind words. The definition of hospitality is: 'the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers'. If you enjoy meeting new people every day, being hospitable is easy. If it doesn't come easy, time to get out of the game... Have a good 1... More

I have to concur with most of the other reviews of this motel. Ian makes you feel welcome from the very 1st phone call and carries it through until after you have left. Great comfy beds and pillows, very clean rooms and a nice quiet location, even though it is on the main road. A fairly typical modern motel. The... More

Ian went out of his way to make my stay at the Starlight Motor Inn an enjoyable experience. You expect service with your accommodation however at the Starlight you definitely receive service and more. Highly Recommend.

2nd time we've stayed here. Stayed here for one night on our way driving from Sydney to Cairns. Meticulously clean, well maintained and great attention to detail. Nice touch at reception was a bucket and squeegee so you can clean your car's windscreen after a long drive ! Highly Recommended.

Ian and Donna could not have been more accomodating or pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble. They are genuinely interested in their guests and their needs. It is handy to the centre of town, with most locations of interest and the main business centre being well within walking distance. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. I will not hesitate...

Stayed just one night. Even though the motel is on the highway the room was very quiet. We did find the layout a little odd with the sink located in the kitchenette area adjacent to the bedroom and outside the bathroom (that included the shower and toilet). Regardless of this oddity we did find the room to be very clean... More

decoration was quite Tizzy, older clientele would have appreciated but not for all clean rooms. Cost wise fairly Standard for Roma which has been effected by the resources boom. It is close to the highway, the rooms were quite.

Stayed at the Starlight Motor Inn overnight and the room was modern, clean and comfortable and surprisingly very little road noise from passing traffic although located on main road. The host was friendly suggesting places to eat as well as the motels options. Would recommend the Starlight Motor Inn for an overnight stay if in Roma.
