“Nice place to stay in Big Indian”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

My husband and I stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. The friendly proprieter was very helpful with advice about area attrractions when we checked in. In fact, the next morning she even brought a local map out to us in our car in the parking lot!
The room was clean with a very comfortable memory foam mattress top. The furnishings are quaint and reminiscent of the era of drive up motels. We had a king sized bed and a small, well equipped kitchen area (with milk awaiting us in the refrigerator). The bathroom was clean, but with older fixtures and very little counter space. The breakfast basket was filled each day with a bagel, delicious blueberry muffin, a variety of cereal choices and granola bars. There was even hot chocolate mix, peanut butter and Nutella! The room had free wifi and a booster for cell service (a HUGE plus in this area!). We could access Netflix and HBO Go for free on the TV. The room rate was reasonable--a good value for our money.

My fiancé and I stayed here with another couple and their seven month old. There are 8 units all in a row, ours had two queen beds. I found it comfortable, but my fiancé did not. There is free wifi, a complete kitchen, marshmallows for toasting and the famous breakfast basket. Also, coffee and milk in the fridge. The manager is so friendly and you can borrow magazines or buy hand knit sweaters in the office. This is not the Ritz, and it's not meant to be. It is friendly, clean, comfortable, and fun. I would come back for sure.

Our room was clean and extremely comfortable. We loved the full kitchen, complete with cookware--and milk in the fridge. Service in general was very good. Our breakfast basket was crammed with tasty snacks that we ended up taking on our hikes of nearby trails. The backyard was perfect for marshmallow roasting and lounging with a book. Very happy I stayed here and hope to do so again!

The lady at the reception office was very accommodating and informative.
This place has very reasonable prices, the rooms are well equipped, everything seems clean and is conveniently located close to some hiking trails we wanted to visit.
Forgetfully we didn't have a map, but the owner lady was nice enough to lent us one.
We would definitely come back to this place when we return to the White mountains.

Room Tip: Corner room at the end is always the quieter, but even our room in the middle was pretty quiet.

I stayed for 5 nights and had a very pleasant experience! The newly remodeled bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and WifI made it feel like my own apartment. The cheerful colors on the surrounding grounds and fresh flowers were very inviting and uplifting. There is also a lovely back property for a BBQ, relaxing in a screened in porch or a night by a fire pit. I didn't have a chance to enjoy them this stay but thought they were such a nice addition to the property. I would definitely recommend Starlite and hope to stay there again!

The room was very clean, you can tell as soon as you walk in. The king size bed was very comfortable, it had a memory foam topper, slept great! The owner was very nice and friendly, and very helpful getting us familiar with the area. They leave out a basket of breakfast goodies, complete with milk in the fridge. It's a great location to explore the area from, great restaurant right down the street.
I'd reccomend this motel to anyone looking for a pleasant stay in the Catskills.

Had a wedding to go to in town and found this little motel which was perfect. Small and personal. The room was more than adequate and clean. Little kitchen so you could cook or store food which we did from a general store down the road. Beds were comfortable as well as the pillows and the towels were nice and fluffy. Breakfast basket in room was perfect. Filled with tea, coffee, hot chocolate as well as cereals, granola bars, bagels and muffins. Would tell anyone needing a good place to stay to pick the Starlite.

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
