“Couldn't have got a better deal for the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

My fiancé and I stayed for 4 nights and loved it! I don't understand all the complaints on here. I always had hot water and the bed had the most comfortable mattress. Our stay also included free chula vista tickets. a free fun pass, and 60% mt.olympus. The staff was very friendly. I'm so glad we decided to stay here! It's such a good value!

I understand inexpensive rooms do not always boast the best amenities or comforts. However, not having even WARM water to take a shower is ridiculous! Another customer used then jacuzzi all night and therefore the entire motel did not have hot water. We spoke with the owner to get $20-30 back. Nope! She told us the jacuzzi story and then also proceeded to tell us that "you still took showers though"....
Again, I was not expecting much, but maybe warm water is not to much to ask for. This lady needs to learn how to run a business. I certainly will make sure people know not to stay here even if it is the last room left in the Dells.

Dear jhock1234,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Starlite Motel.

The hot water heater is a commercial-grade model that is capable of accommodating up to 50 guest rooms. The building you stayed in only has 6 guest rooms, two of which have jacuzzi tubs. In addition, this hot water heater also supplies water to the management living quarters. In the 21 years of operating the motel, this is the first time we have had anyone complain about not having hot water. It is possible that another guest may have ran the water all night, thus emptying the hot water heater. However, upon your check-out, the maintenance man checked the room and stated there was "luke-warm" water. He then checked it three times over the next three hours, and the water was "warm" each time. He checked the settings on the hot water heater and all were set appropriately per the recommendations of the health department. In addition, no other guests who stayed in this building on the same night expressed any concerns about not having hot water.

The room that you rented for $68.00 per night, included a jacuzzi bathtub and two passes to Chula Vista Indoor & Outdoor Waterparks for two days.

Although we can’t please everyone, we certainly try our best. We have been family owned and operated since 1991 and pride ourselves in taking care of our guests and providing satisfaction and service with a smile.

Sincerely,

The Management

Hotel was alittle pricey for what it is. However, all the surrounding hotels are pricey, and you get free water park ticket to a very nice park, Chula Vista. The hotel itself was pretty clean, needed more maintainance and upkeep. The beds were very hard, no phone, clock, or internet. There were only to towels in a 4 person room, they were very small and thin. However, the price of the water park tickets were worth it. The family that owned it were nice. Recommend it for location and tickets, not comfort.

Room Tip: Go for free water park tickets and location, not comfort.

We stayed two nights here just left this morning it is a clean motel and nice for the money you pay. I accidently only reserved a queen room and had four people the lady was nice enough to still let us stay and give us extra blankets and pillows without charging us. The rooms were cleaned daily and beds were comfortable. Close to downtown shopping.

My family loved staying here. It is a nice change from the fast paced, loud resorts. The owners were pleasant and the entire property was well maintained and peaceful. It is older, but that is what we loved about it....classic of the Dells. The low price included free wristbands to Chula Vista resort indoor and outdoor waterpark. What a huge savings! My boys loved it. Don't go here planning to have large parties and wreck the interiors...it is obvious this family owned business takes pride in their business.

Room Tip: Walk a few minutes from the main strip. Pefect location.

Outdated, kinda smelly room. Owners seemed to be very nice though! Always saying hi and asking if we needed anything. Pool area was clean. " family suites" are small, so if extra room is what you want maybe just get 2 adjoining rooms. Overall, they provide no amenities no nothing, just a basic room. They do however offer free passes to the Chula Vista which is a nice bonus!

We spent two days here on our honeymoon. We are just getting started and don't have much money. I found this place through the internet. The price was within our budget. I made reservations. When we got there, the front desk lady was nice. She gave us a map of the area and pointed out where we were, where the water park was, where the main streets were. She gave us two wristbands that let us into Chula Vista waterpark for free. That was super. The room was basic but that's all we needed. It was super clean. We spent time by the pool too. It was quiet and relaxing. It wasn't the Aruba or Hawaii honeymoon some people get to take, but this is what we were able to afford. We will remember it always. We had a nice stay and will come back for our anniversary.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms will be quieter since there is no one above you.
