Spent a couple of nights at the Starlight early last week. Location is great for beach and walking to eat. Service was great, room was very clean. We were missing hangers and a do not disturb/service please sign, they were brought up quickly. Very friendly staff! Our room was a little crowded with a king and twin bed but it... 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

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

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 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
