I've stayed at the Starlite on 2 trips. It's a really charming place - the rooms are clean, each room has a small kitchenette and you get a basket of muffins, bagels, cereal, etc each day. The decor might be a little quirky, but that's part of the charm and it seems just right for the Catskills. The owner is... More

We had a group trip which took up all but one room of the Starlite Motel. Michelle is a very gracious host and when I checked out the rooms in early spring, the rooms felt as if it was the middle of the busiest season. The decor is beautiful and the amenities for a small hotel with full kitchens, breakfast... More

We planned a motorcycle riding trip to the Catskills for a couple of days and were looking for a clean affordable place to stay. The Starlite turned out to be a perfect fit. Let's start out by saying we weren't expecting the Waldorf Astoria. I read some of the negative reviews here and wonder how people can be so nit... More

Michelle, the owner, was gracious and so helpful. the room was lovely, and there was a basket of bakery items for the next morning along with a quart of milk in the fridge! We felt so welcome. Must stay!

I made a spur of the moment trip and needed a pet friendly 2 night stay. I was so happy to find The Starlite! It is an old-school Catskills motel and I loved it! My room was immaculate, the bed clean and comfortable and plenty of hot water in the bath. It is bright and cheerful. What I loved was... More

We were looking forward to a fun local hotel but this did not live up to expectations. There was junk in the front yard and the grass had not been cut in a while. The room was decorated with fake flowers and a strange color combination. Kitchen was adequate but some of the dishes and the stove were not very... More

I'm so sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations. We had no indication during your stay or even upon your departure that you were dissatisfied. You even stated that you may return. I understand the concept of different strokes for different folks. Most of our repeat guests specially request that room, for it's decor. Our grass gets cut... More

We weren't sure about this hotel when we arrived, but the location was good, beds were comfortable and the staff was pleasant. It appeared partially updated, with very nice bathroom sink and faucet (although the hole in the bathroom door was patched with white duct tape), and having a full kitchen was handy. Perhaps the combination of lime green, orange... More

I picked this place for it's location and reasonable price, and was blown away by the cleanliness, spaciousness, and abundant amenities. Check in was a breeze, I called a day in advance for the room, arrived late and check-in directions left for me were clear and easy. Full little kitchen, a full basket of so many snacks and breakfast goods... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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! ... more   less
