Reviewed 6 July 2013

We had a lovely stay at the Starlite. The details and all the extras were a pleasant surprise. The room was clean, had all the items their website claimed. The kitchen was perfect and each room also has a BBQ in the rear of the property, along with picnic tables. Nice for families that like to cook and not have to go out for all meals!! Be sure to check out all the candles and lanterns that light up in the back in the evening - such a nice touch! I will definitely be staying here again. I do recommend!!!

What a pleasant surprise the Starlite was for a band of gypsies traveling all over the area in search of a place to stay. When plans at our original destination fell through, 10 of us were left "homeless" and desperate for a bed. We were all so pleased with the accommodations here. Each room is decorated in such a cute and funky retro style, and comes with a kitchen, and a complimentary breakfast basket. Beds were comfy, and our favorite part was the backyard space. Each room had a door in the back that led to your own deck space with a grill. Beyond that were screened in gazebos where we all would gather for laughs, drinks and roasted marshmallows. The woman who runs the place was a complete doll. The Starlight saved our vacation. :)

The owner was so pleasant and willing to please. She takes a personal interest in each of her guests and goes the extra mile. Her smile was a joy to see each day. She checked every day to make sure that we were happy; and even offered to move me to a room with better cell reception. The Verizon cell service booster was a definite plus.
The kitchenettes were a valuable asset with so few restaurants near by. We loved the outside firepit and picnic tables.
The room was clean and well stocked. There were a few minor issues with a loose toilet seat and light not working; which were immediately repaired.
I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay at the Starlight if I ever get back to the Southern Catskills again.

Room Tip: The Verizon cell booster is in the office. Cell service is better closer to the office.

A bunch of us had a very bad experience at the place we were staying and needed somewhere to crash for a night. We found The Starlite Motel. I was pleasantly surprised! The person who runs the place was so sweet. The place is clean and has a cool 60's feel to it. :) I'd stay there again for sure.

My husband, friends and I needed a place to stay for a night when our vacation plans for the week suddenly changed. We rented four rooms at the Starlite Motel and were very happy with the accommodations! The rooms are spacious with full kitchens (stove, oven, fridge, microwave and table). New flat screen tvs with access to Netflix, HBO Go and many cable channels. The rooms are nicely decorated and are very comfortable. We were each given a "breakfast basket" for the morning as well as a quart of milk for our cereal and coffee. Behind the motel are screened in rooms where you can sit outside and enjoy the mountain air and each room has access to a barbecue. There is even a fire pit where you can roast the marshmallows Michelle gives you upon checking in. I highly recommend the Starlite Motel.

Our stay at Starlite Motel was enjoyable. The rooms are nicely decorated, neat and clean. The bath towels are like new, soft and luxurious, not the hard white crap that many hotels offer. The basket of breakfast goodies was a nice as was the fresh quart of milk placed in our fridge. The location is great, between Phoenicia and Margaretville. They have cell phone booster service so your phone will work around the hotel (service is spotty up there, this is a great convenience).
Michelle is very nice , thanks !

When my husband and I need to get away from our aprtment in the city, we book a room at the Starlite Motel. We've stayed there about four times now. Michele and her family are wonderful hosts and we feel a real warmth from their welcome. Our dog loves to poke around the yard and turns his nose up to the sky, breathing in the fresh air and nature. There are some great local attractions but we are happy just getting takeout and eating out on the back porch too. We sleep like the dead and go back refreshed but also longing for our next trip back to Big Indian.

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
