We were very happy to find this pet friendly motel in the area. Our room was clean and comfortable and there was a basket of snacks waiting for us in our room. The motel is very colorful. We will definitely stay here again when we are back in the area.

Decided to get away and snowboard during Stella... Finally got to stay here after years of wanting to! It was more than I hoped for! Michelle was so hospitable and even offered me some of her groceries (for which we paid her, of course!) when we realized that every store and restaurant around was shut down from the snow. She...

This is an old style motel that has been well maintained. You can see the new paint, carpet and upgrades throughout. Its not perfect and still needs continuing upgrades and paint but provides a very satisfactory experience. Most importantly its clean and has nice comfy pillow top beds and the small kitchen is a big bonus. Another extra is the...

As always our stay at the Starlite was a most pleasurable experience. Made use of the full kitchen and large fridge. The showers were hot and the wifi was excellent. The proximity to the mountain is great. You can't beat 5 mins. to Belleayre. Our host, MIchelle, is always gracious and helpful if we need anything.

This motel is a wonderful jewel in the Catskills. Set back off the road, the spacious rooms are quiet and clean. They have a separate little kitchen and a nice bathroom, and the beds were comfy. Michelle was very nice and accommodating. It was great to be able to unload our stuff from our car conveniently parked out front. Can't...

Very nice Motel in the middle of the Catskills. Very nice staff and the rooms were very clean with a full kitchen which was a very nice touch. also every room has a basket with energy bars muffin, bagel and coffee which was unexpected. I would absolutely stay here again.

Spent a long weekend at this eclectic motel to go skiing at Belleayre. The rooms were clean and welcoming. We had a beautiful filled basket of granola bars, cereals, muffins, bagels, and many more breakfast items to start our ski day. It was replenished the next day. The beds were very comfortable and warm. The location is very quiet.

This old 1960's era roadside motels stands out above all the rest. Clean, newly redecorated, friendly staff, quiet and scenic location. The rooms contain virtually everything you could want. Up until this stay at the Starlite I've only seen such an array of needed items in expensive high end hotels: Plasma TV with DVD and access to Netflix, Amazon instant...

This is the type of place I think twice about reviewing and giving a 5 star review ONLY because I'm selfish and would hate to not be able to get a room. We hiked all day and had a great stay at starlite. Clean , comfortable beds, generous basket of food left at our table. Love that it had a...

The Starlite is a reflection of its lovely owner, Michelle. This feels more like a lovely bed and breakfast than a motel. Go in the winter for gorgeous snowcapped mountains and go in the summer for this great backyard with grills, and lovely design. At night the backtard lights up and you cantstare at the sky from a closed in...

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
