“Perfect for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Location! Across the street from Barnacle Bills and 2 blocks walking distance from beach, ice cream across the street and heated pool on site. Hospitality! Kind, generous, helpful and kind. Cleanliness! Well kept property maintained with pride of ownership. Vacationed with my husband, our four kids and my mom. Suggestion for families... Get the rooms with queen size beds. The motel room double beds were a tight squeeze. A next time must for us...the suite with the washer/ dryer. With sand and salt water your towels with need it and you don't have to hang your wet stuff all over the room. Definitely a place we will return to!

Room Tip: Get the room with queen beds and washer/dryer. Bring cups plates and napkins if you plan on eating...

Loved this place. Friendly staff. Very clean. Close to Seaside, Point Pleasant and a block from the beach. We stayed in an apartment and it was worth the extra money. Had a full kitchen. Cleanest and biggest bathroom at the beach ever.

Room Tip: Get an apartment it's worth it!

Although there are many areas in and around Ortley Beach still devistated it is great to have the Starlight up and running again!!
Michelle and the folks at the Starlight are a wonderful group. I have been going to the Starlight for over 30 years and it never disappoints. The renovated rooms are very nicely done as is the pool and the office areas. The beach area is a few blocks smaller right now so it was crowded over the holiday weekend. But it was crowded that is he important thing!
Everyone should make there way to this great little gem at our Jersey shore!! Support the area!!
Good Luck Starlight and thanks for a great weekend.
See you soon!!

I stayed in one of the luxury suites for several months due to a job assignment. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. The suite has a great layout, with a separate bedroom. The in-room washer and dryer was a great convenience. Grills are provided and the courtyard , with tables and umbrellas, is a great place to eat and visit with other guests.

Room Tip: For the ladies: The shower is stand-up, with no ledge to balance your legs for shaving. Waxing bef...

This Motel was very clean and updated inside. I had a regular king room which comes with a mini fridge and microwave. The bed was comfy, the TV had a bunch of channels and the pool was heated and had plenty of open lounge chairs. The beach is only 2 blocks away and the mini gold course across the street looks like it will be reopening from the storm soon. My friends had 2 different large suites which were really nice. Updated full kitchen (island,dishwasher,full fridge, stove,oven) they had a big bedroom one had a nice leather sofa the other had a regular fabric one and they had a washer/dryer in unit. I would definitely stay there again.

I would say it was about a 5 minute drive to seaside which is not bad at all, the beach is $7 per person to get on and the tandem parking was a little annoying but still not a real issue.

Room Tip: Get a large suite on the bottom level to be near the pool, like rooms 20-25

I have never stayed at this motel before this year. I came in late September after the season crush. The rooms were more than adequate. They were clean, comfortable, and in good condition. Nice sized mini fridge to keep all your drinks cold or to keep food. Microwave is also in the room and clean. If you want ice, you can help yourself to bags of it in the office for your cooler on your way to the beach (which is only a short block away.) The staff was very friendly and helpful in every way. The housekeeper was cool, too. There are plenty of eating options nearby, all in walking distance. Sadly, Beach Burritto was closed for the season, one of my faves. Still, you could grill your own food on one of their gas grills. They have 2 or 3 of them. The A & P is just down the road. No bugs, no roaches. Beds were comfortable. Pool was warm and clean. All in all an enjoyable stay. There are probably cheaper places to stay on the shore but they will be dumpy and sketchy. Stay here if you want clean, comfortable digs close to the beach. I could see how parking could be an issue during season, but really, with cooperation I would only find it mildly inconvenient. Highly recommend this place. Glad I stayed here.

So sad to think people would confuse a water bug with a roach. We have been staying at the Starlight for years. It has been nothing but enjoyable, CLEAN,and the employes are outstanding. They have been there for years and they become part of your family. The beach is just one block and Mini golf right across the street...The other wonderful thing is I have become friends with some of the guests because we all pick the same weeks, so our children have made lifelong friends...Nothing but wonderful memories for us...
