The owner was very pleasant and welcoming when we arrived. We stayed in the John Wayne room, which was very big (king size bed, bureau, desk, and arm chair) and had a comfortable bed. There were nice touches, like the crown moulding and having two sinks (one in the bathroom and one just outside the bathroom). We also appreciated that... More

Spent a night while picking up my daughter for Christmas break at UVM. Unbelievable value in that area. Just a quick ride from campus. The property is immaculate and the room was bright, clean and spacious. I stayed in the John Wayne room. I loved the colors in the room and the decor is tasteful not "kitschy" at all. Comfortable...

My family and I loved our stay here. The room was comfortable and spotless. The owner took a lot of pride in his property. Each night spent at his inn included admission to the on-site drive-in. Also, he gave excellent dinner recommendations. When back in the area, I would love to stay here again. It was unique.

Completely tongue in cheek quirkiness, with 'red carpet' concrete ramps to each door and a large star on the door with your actor's name inside. Even thinking back on it makes me smile. So clean and new, absolutely spotless and such a great size of room, with recessed ceiling and King size bed. Room for a comfortable chair, chair and... More

We had the V I P Hollywood room and what a relaxing stay but the whirlpool bath was the greatest,clean,nice wet bar and love all the restaurants in the area and you can walk to almost everything. It was very quiet and I just wanted to stay in the room and it had a very nice sitting area

For reasons unclear to me, downtown Burlington has only $200+ hotels. The Starlight Inn is 6 miles out of town, but priced under $100 for very new, fresh rooms, each decorated with pics and posters of one of your favorite movie stars. And during good weather, the room rate includes entry into the Drive-In Movies next door. The place was... More

This was an amazing place to stay! It was a last minute decision to get a room and I happen to get lucky to find there was availability here. We had the Marilyn Monroe room and it was wonderfully decorated. Super clean, the beds were comfy with crisp sheets. It was super close to downtown Burlington and has an excellent... More

The Starlight Inn is wonderful! Each room is themed ... we were in Julia Roberts! ; ) The rooms are really well decorated and incredibly comfortable. PLUS we had free entry to the drive in movie next door - RESULT! We would love to return.

My sister and I, both from Washington state, stayed in the "Bogey and Bacall" room recently, thoroughly enjoying our stay. From the wonderful greeting and recommendation for breakfast by the owner, to the discovery of a spotlessly clean and pleasant room, to the nice furniture and comfortable beds, to the friendly and courteous staff we encountered the next morning, it...

We cycle in the area and have stayed several times. The hotel is a gem in the rough. Rooms are high end and the beds are divine. Then you get to experience an old school outdoor theater and drive inn that is a part of the property. He lets us leave cars overnight so we can ride up the Island... More
