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...

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...

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...

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 recently completed a lengthy stay and was just reading the reviews. Sad that the reviews were out of line completely. Let me clarify the area so people from out of town can understand. The area is a peninsula with NO hotels on the beach as it is all private residences. The ocean is houses away from the hotel and...

We planned to stay one week while visting friends who live in Manaloking. The reviews we read were all glowing, but the place was a disaster. The first room we were given had water leaking from the retro-fitted air conditioner and had lots of noise from the pool. The manger gave us another room farther away from the pool area....

StarlightHotel, Owner at Starlight Motel & Luxury Suites, responded to this review

in response to your review, I believe that since we were rated as one of the Best Small Family Motels, customers are assuming that we are a Hotel/Resort, which we are not. We are a family run Motel one block from the beach, which is stated throughout our website. The plastic mattress covers, you mentioned, are for your benefit as,...

This is our first and last time at this Motel. We were afraid to use the grounds due to the aggressive crowd in the shared courtyard and pool area. This seems to be tolerated by management bc even after arrests were made, the same were allowed to return the next day. We were unable to use the shared area bc...

In response to your review, we have been family owned and run for 40 years this summer and my sister and I are activity involved in the running of our establishment.
