Hard to get a motel - last minute - and we got the Starlight. A basic hotel- quiet and clean. I'm easy to please- not cheap, but it's high season at the Jersey shore- so that's to be expected. A couple of good places to eat breakfast- walking distance is Sunny Hunny- omelets and cheerful. Drive to the Crab's Claw... More

This is our 2nd summer staying here and every trip just gets better. We have incredible childhood memories from 35 yrs ago here and love that our kids are making those memories now. From the staff Michelle, Kim, Elaine, Angelo and everybody else they make this just so great! There is nothing that we could want that they don't have... More

We stayed at the Starlight Motel four nights while we were in town for work. It's an older motel, but the rooms are clean and the owners are extremely friendly. They check in with guests to see if there is anything you need. The price was very inexpensive; compared to the big-name chain motels in the area, this was a... More

The starlight is my favorite! Clean rooms, coffee included and plenty of towels! This will forever be my ortley hotel. The workers are super accommodating. They gave us tips on perfect local restaurants and sights. My only criticism is that the deck above the office needs TLC and a paint job. Also they had three broken table umbrellas.

The Starlight was clean, had a heated pool, across the street from an arcade and miniture golf course and ice cream shop. The beach and restaurants within walking distance, and short drive to the boardwalk

The Starlight is in a great location, one block from the beach, across from Barnacle Bills and not far from Seaside Heights Boardwalk. We stayed in an efficiency that had everything you need. The room and pool were super clean but there were cigarette butts everywhere on the outside areas especially the first few days we stayed. There is no... More

I just visited the Starlight Motel in Ortley Beach ,NJ We were greeted by the owner Angelo who was very nice. Our room was ready early and we checked in. The hotel was recently renovated, our room was a large one bedroom. It was spotless and was kept that way all week by the staff. Kitchen was useful and had... More

Go here every year. Close to the beach. Very clean and spacious. Wish the pool was opened longer. Barnacle Bill's is right across the street, the kids love that. The staff is very friendly. It is a great family place.....

We enjoyed our stay! Very clean and comfortable. Service was excellent. Easy access to beach, short drive to boardwalk, and some good restaurants. Weather could have been better but still enjoyed. Pool was very inviting.
