This was a very good hotel for the value. The room was small but very comfortable, with very decent amenities for the price. It is very dated, but it is very clean as well. They provide full toiletries: shampoo, conditioner, soap bars and body cream. Good internet, and cable TV. It has a full kitchenette, you can cook if you want to. The plus is that at the back it has a patio with picnic tables for each of the rooms, overlooking the beautiful forest at the back. Close to really good food options, and unbeatable location, easy drive to many hikes in the Catskills!
This wonderful small motel near the Catskill ski areas (closest to Belleayre & Plattekill) offers the best of two worlds, and I've been staying here periodically over the past few years. In an area devoid of large commercial businesses and hotels, Starlite shines as a "find", with reasonable rates and always very clean maintenance. Management is very attentive to requests, and the breakfast basket each day with various goodies (muffins, cereals, food bars, coffees, teas, etc) almost parallels breakfast nooks in larger, urban motels (minus the hot food, which you can make yourself), While the kitchen facilities are basic, they're all there (stove, microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee machine, dishes, cookware, silverware, table & chairs, etc), as are the rooms' amenities, including cable tv, netflix, prime, good lighting, adequate seating, extra quilts/pillows, etc. Bathroom facilities are also basic but all there and always working properly. (Nice shower and towels too, and always extra disposables.) As a responsible owner Michele is always available and a pleasure to deal with, and Starlite's policies are very reasonable, especially considering the motel's relative remoteness to urban areas. She makes the necessary compromises to continue to operate a small business in a remote area, and gets kudos for keeping Starlite running in such an excellent way. I will continue to stay here whenever i visit this area.…
Woman at front desk (owner) went above and beyond to make my stay pleasant after I forgot an item at the grocery store. The grounds are charming, room was clean. This place nails the little things and punches above its weight for a 2-star.
Starlite is a little, unpretentious gem tucked into the Catskill Mountains. If felt like home right away and the back yard area is filled with small wonders, complete with an awesome outdoor lounge and fire pit. There was a full kitchen in my room and it was great to be able to make a little meal after a long day of hiking. Peekamoose restaurant is a 1 minute drive away and the food and cocktails were amazing. I was on a solo trip and highly recommend Starlite to travelers and explorers alike. Thank you Michelle for an awesome stay! I will be back!
No telephone. No cell phone service. Nice view in back. Friendly owner. A bit overpriced. No highway noise at night. Weber charcoal grills and communal firepit in back. Gazebos front and back. High step to enter room. TV and internet and dvd work. Lots of tv channels. Kitchen worked fine. Bathroom is fine. Hot water is very hot. All rooms and furniture and fixtures and doors are 20-30 years old and worn. Lighting is fine. Easy to access the motel. Closest restaurant is pricy. Really nothing to do in area except hiking, fishing (and skiing?). Local gas prices reasonable- but fill up much farther east just off mail 4-lane highway - gas is $0.20 cheaper.
