My daughter and I stayed here for $55 for a volleyball tourney as we were on a budget and I LOVE old motels! We ended up staying there two different weekends because it was so nice! We stayed in two different rooms and they were completely redone. New paint, carpet, flat screen TV's, bathroom shower/tub surround all new. Very nice... More

Small mom and pop place, with about 15 rooms. Have stayed a couple times over the years - always super clean and incredibly reasonable, about $50/night weekend rate (May 2016). Rooms are small, and no frills, but if you are looking for a place to rest your head with easy highway access, this is it.

I was honestly little leery about staying in a motel for less than $50, but I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I would definitely stay there again. I only needed a place to sleep and shower, so I can tell you much about the amenities.

AWESOME motel for the area that is reasonable as well, I thought the owner was joking when he said they were booked but the parking lot was full when I woke up. It was apparent that they put great pride into the upkeep and cleanliness. Good night's sleep. The 3g wireless network was in range.

After looking at prices ahead in Fargo, we decided to check prices in Dilworth and the other adjoining cities. The Star Lite was a reasonable rate, and we had a pretty large and very clean room. We had a fridge, which was nice, so I grabbed some milk at a grocery store for breakfast cereal. There was a picnic table... More

At first glance I thought I was at The Bates Motel. It gives the first impression of a dump. But after you settle in you realize you've found a gem. The rooms are huge and clean.. My room was large enough for a suite but had 2 king size beds instead. The bathroom was large, clean with big fluffy towels.... More

Wonderful motel neon sign was so in the 1950's style! Room was comfy, clean and pretty, but i was fascinated with motel architecture. It is one of the pearls of our mid century architecture. Also, i read in one book that theirs neon sign was added to the US greatest 100 hotel neon signs, per it's significance. Anyway, very cool... More

I had picked this place for the last night of our honeymoon based on some photos from the web. You never know how these old places will turn out, but this was an excellent choice. It's an adorable little 'L' shaped '50s motel, with a colorful neon sign on the end by the road. The owners are very nice, and... More
