I picked this place for it's location and reasonable price, and was blown away by the cleanliness, spaciousness, and abundant amenities. Check in was a breeze, I called a day in advance for the room, arrived late and check-in directions left for me were clear and easy. Full little kitchen, a full basket of so many snacks and breakfast goods...

The room of two Queen beds and a generously sized blow up mattress was great. There was a full (though small) kitchen with a 4-topped electric stove, an oven, a sink, coffee maker, microwave, and full fridge. There is a small table with two chairs, though there wasn't much room to actually sit there. The TV had full Netflix, Amazon...

Was looking for someplace fun but low-key to stay after a day of skiing. Starlite turned out to be a perfect choice and a pleasant surprise! It's just down the road from Belleayre Mountain. The colorful, hip decor made for a warm, inviting stay on a snowy day. The room was immaculate and well-appointed. The extras made it even nicer-...

From the outside, the Starlite Motel appears to be like any other, but once you step inside, the differences are very apparent. For example, the bed and bedding are all premium quality with over-sized down pillows and a down duvet. Instead of cheap, white scratchy-motel towels in the bathroom, you'll find soft, plush, colorful towels. The bathroom and kitchenette are...

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
