“Great value, good location, friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We travel with 10 people total. So finding a nice, reasonably priced hotel is sometimes difficult. We rented 2 rooms for 3 nights. The service was wonderful! They did not have adjoining rooms but they placed us next to one another. The rooms are not fancy but very clean. The mattresses were very comfortable and clean. The pool area is small but nice. There is no indoor pool which is a downfall. The parking lot is small and cramped however we were always able to park near our room. The hotel is located at the end of the strip. Definitely a plus to be able to walk downtown! My family and I will definitely stay there again!

Dear Jennifer B,

Thank you very much for your review about your stay with us recently. I am so glad to hear that you think highly of this place and now we have been able to become that new favorite place to stay while vacationing in the Wisconsin Dells area. We work extremely hard to make sure the rooms are very clean and sanitary. We always try our best to make every guest stay as welcome as possible. It is nice being on the strip within walking distance to the shops and restaurants. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the FREE passes to Chula Vista Waterparks. We look forward to your future visit with us.

Sincerely,
The Management

My six year old son summed it up by saying, "Mom, this was the "Bestest" vacation ever." We really had a great vacation. Not only was it affordable, we felt like we were at home. The owners would say hi to us whenever they saw us. They really work hard all day long. They make sure everything is nice and clean. We had a room with two queen beds. The room was very clean and spacious. The beds were super comfortable. We used the pool every evening. My son absolutely loved the pool. The water was nice and warm. We also got free tickets to Chula Vista Waterpark with our room so we took advantage of that too. We would recommend the Starlite to anyone.

We stayed for 3 nights, the owners take pride in clean rooms.
It was a very nice stay. The only down is no coffee makers in the rooms, but I brought my own so no worries.
The beds are comfy.
The owners are very friendly. The price is right. It's only a couple blocks to the downtown strip, but very quiet at the motel. There's a restaurant across the alley that's open for breakfast and lunch.
We will definitely stay here again next summer.

I visited with my three teenaged sons (ages 13, 15, and 18). We are travelling cross-country and doing some mountain biking along the way. We stopped at Devil's Lake in Baraboo, biked until we were exhausted, and then made our way to the Dells. We stayed at the Starlite for two nights. It was a very good experience. We were greeted politely when we checked in, we got free waterpark passes, had a nice corner room on the second floor. We enjoyed the pool and walked downtown. The owner even let us store our expensive mountain bikes in the storage room. I thought that was going above and beyond. . . going the extra mile. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the place looked kept up. The price was also very reasonable considering the waterpark passes. Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner room on the second floor

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
