I have been staying at the Startlight Motel for many years. each year we go back we love it more and more. The motel and grounds are so beautiful, and the staff is top of the line. Everyone that works there is so pleasant and helpful. Michele who is the manager there has grown up in the area, so she knows every great place to eat! I can't even think of staying anywere else. The rooms are so clean and updated. Between the rooms and the staff, we feel like we are at a five star hotel! If you are heading to the Jersey Shore there is only one place to stay it is the Starlight Motel and Luxury Suites.

Room Tip: all rooms are great

My kids grew up going to this wonderful place every single year for 15 years. We have a group of 10-15 families taht go down every summer, and we have a ball. The staff are great and helpful. Many new improvements have been made to the physical plant over these years, including new ly renovated rooms.

Family friendly atmosphere and we all help keep the peace and work together. There are rarely any complaints and if there are any they are resolved!! The Tomanelli/Dibattista Family LOVE the Starlight!! Especially, Michelle and Ron, part of the staff that we look forward to seeing every year.

My family and extended family has been going to the Starlight for over 20 years. We used to rent an apartment down the street, but the kids wanted a swimming pool and the parents wanted air conditioning & maid service. So we gave Starlight a try and have never gone anywhere else. The staff is amazing. Over the years we have gotten to know them well & they know us, too. They are always there with a kind word or offer to help. 5 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. We had sent in our nonrefundable deposit for the first week of August, but my mastectomy was scheduled for Aug 3rd. Michelle at the front desk cried with me, gave me my refund and wrote a personal note to cheer me up. I truly appreciated her kind gesture. On a lighter note, my kids love the Starlight! The pool is amazing--always clean! Right across the street is Barnacle Bills, which is a mini golf, snack bar, ice cream & arcade! My son likes the foot long hot dogs. It is not vacation unless he gets it! The Starlight is only 1 block from the beach. We usually walk to the beach, but if you want to drive, there is a parking lot. The beach in not too crowded (like Seaside) and it mostly families there (not crazy teenagers like Seaside). I just can't say enough about our experiences at the Starlight over the years. I have recommended it to many friends and have never been disappointed.

This was the first time we have stayed at the starlight and is now our family tradition!!! We have been driving back and forth to the beach for many years, and a friend recommended the starlight. We decided to give it a try and fell in love!! The first thing I noticed was that when I called to book our reservation I spoke to a friendly person who was very knowledgable and helpful. I hate going through recorded prompts on the phone! Michelle helped me choose the best value for my budget and for the needs of my family of five. As Monmouth county residents we have never stayed locally, and ventured to Ortley Beach for fun! We had more than we could ever imagine!!! The room was immaculate and beautiful, the property extremely well maintained and clean, the location was awesome....so close to everything. Boardwalk, beach, extremely clean pool, great local restaurants. I do not miss driving back and forth to the beach at all, and neither does my husband:-) We have been long time New Jersey residents and never knew that a jewel was so close by. As we were leaving we felt like we were leaving family, and have already made our reservations for the next summer! Thank you Starlight!!!

The Starlight is across the street from an arcade and the miniture golf. It is one block from the beach and you can walk to the boardwalk. They are close to CVS and the A & P. There are lots of little shops to pick up souveniors. If you have young teens and you get a room on the second floor you can sit on the balcony and watch the kids at the arcade. My parents have been bringing me and my sister and brother to the Starlight since we were little. I'm thrilled to say that we are now able to bring our kids and they range in age from 13 to 18 and we kept our family tradition going. The memories we have made are priceless. With great sadness we have lost my father and brother, but whenever we are at the Starlight we have all those amazing memories!! We love Michelle and Ron and of course Bill. We all look forward to our next vacation at the Starlight every year from the day before we check out. We always book the same room and week for the following year before we leave.

Room Tip: First floor for small kids and second for older
