“Great family-run and owned motel”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

I stayed in one of the luxury suites for several months due to a job assignment. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. The suite has a great layout, with a separate bedroom. The in-room washer and dryer was a great convenience. Grills are provided and the courtyard , with tables and umbrellas, is a great place to eat and visit with other guests.

Room Tip: For the ladies: The shower is stand-up, with no ledge to balance your legs for shaving. Waxing bef...

This Motel was very clean and updated inside. I had a regular king room which comes with a mini fridge and microwave. The bed was comfy, the TV had a bunch of channels and the pool was heated and had plenty of open lounge chairs. The beach is only 2 blocks away and the mini gold course across the street looks like it will be reopening from the storm soon. My friends had 2 different large suites which were really nice. Updated full kitchen (island,dishwasher,full fridge, stove,oven) they had a big bedroom one had a nice leather sofa the other had a regular fabric one and they had a washer/dryer in unit. I would definitely stay there again.

I would say it was about a 5 minute drive to seaside which is not bad at all, the beach is $7 per person to get on and the tandem parking was a little annoying but still not a real issue.

Room Tip: Get a large suite on the bottom level to be near the pool, like rooms 20-25

I have never stayed at this motel before this year. I came in late September after the season crush. The rooms were more than adequate. They were clean, comfortable, and in good condition. Nice sized mini fridge to keep all your drinks cold or to keep food. Microwave is also in the room and clean. If you want ice, you can help yourself to bags of it in the office for your cooler on your way to the beach (which is only a short block away.) The staff was very friendly and helpful in every way. The housekeeper was cool, too. There are plenty of eating options nearby, all in walking distance. Sadly, Beach Burritto was closed for the season, one of my faves. Still, you could grill your own food on one of their gas grills. They have 2 or 3 of them. The A & P is just down the road. No bugs, no roaches. Beds were comfortable. Pool was warm and clean. All in all an enjoyable stay. There are probably cheaper places to stay on the shore but they will be dumpy and sketchy. Stay here if you want clean, comfortable digs close to the beach. I could see how parking could be an issue during season, but really, with cooperation I would only find it mildly inconvenient. Highly recommend this place. Glad I stayed here.

So sad to think people would confuse a water bug with a roach. We have been staying at the Starlight for years. It has been nothing but enjoyable, CLEAN,and the employes are outstanding. They have been there for years and they become part of your family. The beach is just one block and Mini golf right across the street...The other wonderful thing is I have become friends with some of the guests because we all pick the same weeks, so our children have made lifelong friends...Nothing but wonderful memories for us...

I have been coming down the shore to stay at the Starlight with my family since I was a teenager. It is truly the cleanest motel in all of the Jersey Shore. I have never heard anyone complain about types of bugs at the Starlight. Are you sure you didn't bring it in? I totally disagree with you in writing that review and trying to ruin the reputation of such a wonderful establishment. I would recommend to the Starlight to everyone!

The rooms were clean, the floors were tile a huge plus for no musty smell from carpeting in most motels.The beds are so so, except plan on back pain if you get stuck on sofa bed .The pool while ok to swim in ,needs a lot of maintenance .1 block to guarded beach with bathrooms ,the staff was very nice and helpful ,Plenty of dining options with walking distance.
overall an ok stay for few night down at the beach.

I found a roach in the bathroom. I took a photo of it, and showed management. The manager called another hotel to see if they had a room for us, at their expense. I had paid for two nights. The manager would not refund me for the second night. The night manager came up and cleaned the dead bug up. I called the manager on Monday for a refund. She is very unreasonable. I had the credit card company call and she hung up on her twice. I will be disputing the charges. I also called the State office of Consumer Protection.

Room Tip: Don't choose this hotel at all!
