We were very happy with our last minute stay at the Starlight. It's obvious that the owners care about providing travelers with a positive experience and provide many small but appreciated amenities. We recommend this motel.

Clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly owners. Good amenities (mini-fridge, coffee maker, toiletries, complimentary juice and snacks in the morning, plus some other stuff I've forgotten). I felt completely at home here right away, and that's very unusual for me.
