Arrived in Mt. Airy at 5pm and was anxious to eat and then rest for a full day Monday the 4th of July. We first stopped at the Mayberry Hotel but were informed they were full. We decided to try the Star Lite Motel before we went further into town. I entered the lobby and ask to see a room (the 49.99 per night concerned me). I was given a key and checked out the room. It was clean, bathroom was clean as were the bed sheets. When I returned to the office the manager inquired if I would rather have a smoking room because she had noticed my wife smoking. I took it but had some concerns that the smoking room would not be as nice or have a strong smell of smoke. To my surprise the smoking room was as clean, bathroom well supplied with towels, a very strong air conditioner and only a faint hint of cigarette smoke. I travel frequently and steer clear of Motels with real bad reviews but this place surprised me in a good way. It was clean and comfortable. No, it did not have a heated pool, suana, full breakfast or shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom. When I want these I stay in a Hilton or Hyatt. But if you are passing through the area and want a very inexpensive clean and comfortable place to sleep, this would be the place.
