Welcome to Starlite Motel, your home away from home in the heart of the Catskill Region! The Starlite Motel is located on Route 28 in Big Indian, near famous hiking trails like the Big Indian Slide Mountain Trail and near to many towns and attractions which keeps our small Catskills hotel busy most of the year. Located on 2.5 acres, Starlite Motel is set back from Route 28 and nestled into the postcard setting of Rose Mountain. Our boutique hotel has a mere eight rooms, which shows our commitment to enjoying the Catskills in a relaxed and casual atmosphere while maintaining an outdoor experience. All rooms are newly renovated from a Cabin-like decor to Modern Country decor, which we are calling Premium rooms. All rooms are spacious, comfortable and loaded with amenities such as Kitchens, newly renovated baths, 90+ Cable Channels, Video Streaming and Free Wireless Internet. Visitors open the back door of their kitchen to find a retreat in the backyard; a sprawling wooded area with picnic tables, charcoal grills, a deck to lounge and a screened room for outdoor dining. Staying true to this mission, our hotel continues to be second home to many outdoor enthusiasts, filled with the nostalgia of great family memories built here. From the entire staff here at Starlite Motel, we look forward to having you, your family and friends join us soon!

Very clean, modern, with great amenities. Michelle was very accommodating on our recent family ski trip. The motel is located very close to Belleyeare Mountain as well as several excellent restaurants. Will definitely be back!

This place is a keeper. We had no idea what to expect and were not at all familiar with the area. We loved the Starlite: the room was a perfect hotel & a bit of the blast from the past. Clean and well setup. The galley kitchen was perect, and the full size fridge was a bonus.

Starlite was a very good motel, very close to BelleAyre and not too far from Plattekill ski resorts. Small, family operation. Front desk staff (human and canine) couldn’t have been more friendly. Room was nice and well cleaned. Bathrooms are older but have been spruced up at

I stayed at the Starlite Motel for the night ahead of a day of skiing, and I can't recommend the place enough. It's a motel, so you will get a picture of what it looks like. It's a motel, not a five-star hotel, but I can't recommend it enough. Staff was super friendly. Our room

We've made some upgrades to our wifi routers about a year ago. And since then the signal has been outstanding for all 8 rooms. The Wifi carries the heavy load of all guests devices plus the movie streaming devices in the rooms. It has held up very well. Occasionally after a storm we need to reset it, so don't hesitate to mention any issues you might have.
