My fiancé and I go to Van Buren about 2 times a month, and we ALWAYS stay at Star Light! It's cheap, has nice bathrooms, extremely clean, and very well taken care of! You get what you pay for, in such a small town! The owners and staff are very friendly, and laid back. The pool is great, and never... More

Thank you for your review! We appreciate your business. One thing in your review that I would like to mention is the quiet hours. We actually do have quiet hours here from 10 pm to 7 am but we aren't excessively strict with them like some other establishments you may find. Some hotels/motels ask guests to be in their rooms...

The new young owners are really trying with this property. They have done a lot of new renovations and continue to do so. We were not able to float on the river due to severe flooding, but the owners gave us a huge discount due to so many cancellations while we kept reservations anyway. Very helpful and considerate owners. An... More

Thank you for your review! We are glad you had a good stay here!

We chose the Starlight because of availability and price and at first, we were satistfied. For an older building, the facilities were clean and well-kept. During the middle of our first night, the people in the room next to ours were very loud - we could hear numerous voices talking, banging on doors, etc. However, we didn't talk to management...

You don't have a lot of choices in Van Buren. With that being said, the Starlight was a great little bargain. I have stayed in the other little motels in V.B., but, I would have to say this would be my pic of the litter except for Big Spring Road Motel. Big Spring Road Motel is a lot more per... More
