“Great Place”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The Starlite is a great small town motel. The exterior is nice, clean and has road appeal. The owners are friendly and helpful. They are biker friendly. I love being able to park in front of my room. If you get a room on the front west side, you can get your bike in the shade. Speaking of rooms, I had room #6. I found the room very clean and up to date. The room has a flat screen TV, microwave, fridge, coffee maker and hair dryer. There is shampoo, lotion and bar soap. These are not the tiny soap bars. There is wi-fi that works well. I found the bed comfortable. All of this at a very reasonable price. If you are travelling on Route 36 and find yourself looking for a place to stop, drive on to the Starlite in Seneca. You will be glad you did. While there , check out their neon sign. Take the time to check out the town and up town. You'll enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: If you're on a motorcycle, you can get in the shade at the west end on the front side.

I was driving across the country and got to Seneca, Kansas, around 10 p.m. Did a quick check of TripAdvisor ratings and drove to the Starlite. I was not disappointed. Very clean room, hot shower, fair price, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I tried to befriend "Molly" the dog, but she was a little too shy.

If you're in the area, the Starlite is a good choice.

This is such a unique and friendly motel! It was decorated so cute with just the little extras that someone would find at home. How surprised I was to find decorative sheets and pillowcases. It was so clean - the cleanest I have ever found in a motel! We were greeted with enthusiasm and the cutest Cocker Spaniel. It is a pet friendly motel. Would definitely stay here again and not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I would stay it is in the top 5 motels we have stayed in during the past 45 years of travel.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room in the back as it is located close to the highway through town. Trucks can be...

We enjoyed the spotless accomodation. The motel rooms are small but efficiant. The only downers are they only have two flat pillows on the bed and the mattresses need replacing or a pillowtop added as they are hard. Also they hsve plug in airfreshner that we had to put outside of our room becauseof sensitivity.all in all though cleanliness trumps the downers as it is hard to find clean places anymore. I would stay again

In this age of large hotel chains, it was a very pleasant surprise to find the Starlite. Lynette checked us in and made us feel as welcome as if we were long lost friends. The rooms are the older hotel sized but totally redone and immaculate. We really appreciated the in room coffee, microwave, and free internet, all at an incredible value. It is so nice to see an older motel brought back to life with owners that really care about the people that stay with them.

We stayed at this motel both going and coming back from Pioneer Village in NE. The rooms are small, but very clean, comfy and offer everything you might need to give you a comfortable stay. The owners were friendly and they did a good job decorating the rooms. We appreciated the free high speed internet. Good restaurant stone's throw away.
