I've stayed in other places in the area but this is my favorite and I'll be back. Low on frills but I am there to ski and sleep. Had everything me and my two kids needed. The continental breakfast was an added bonus. The rooms are clean and have a small kitchen to cook dinner after a long day on...

My husband and I booked a room the day of our stay so we could avoid driving up to Belleayre in the snowstorm. The location is excellent. We were a few miles from the mountain. Booking was easy, and they were very accommodating with our late arrival. It was so nice to walk into our room and see our breakfast...

Cute motel with full kitchens. Will definitely stay there again. Nice backyard area with fire pit. My husband built a nice fire so after a day of skiing we enjoyed hanging by the fire and meeting some fellow travelers. Only wish they had a hot tub, that would make it the place! Will stay there again. Very basic, but clean....

My family stayed here for one night while on a Belleayre ski weekend. The owner Michelle was great. We arrived on Saturday before check in on way to mountain and she let us unload our suitcases in our room even though it wasn't 100% ready for check in. The room was clean which was my main concern. There was a...

I'm here for the skiing and it's real special to come home after a long day of skiing to such a warm and homey place. Michelle is so wonderful. She treats her guests with such care. I highly recommend this gem.

recently my mother lost her home to a fire and we needed to find a temporary place for her to stay while she seeks long term housing. Michelle the owner - graciously opened her doors to my mom and her two dogs. Since the first day my mom was there, Michelle and Lucy ( the house keeper) have been amazing...

My wife, son and I chose the Starlite due to its proximity to Belleayre. Pros: 3 minute drive to Belleayre. Beautiful mountainside location. The staff was great. Gave us an early check-in and a late checkout. The room was clean and cozy. We loved the Netflix. Cons: Website picture looks better than the room actually does. Price is the same...

My son and I went up for skiing and chose the Starlite due to location. It was better than we could have expected. The owner couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming.

It was a pleasure to stay at the Starlite. The owner was extremely warm, welcoming and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable.

This wonderful old style motel was very clean and tidy. Very comfortable bed, great shower (lots of hot water and pressure), well equipped kitchenette, separate heating controls in each room, and lots of TV channels from which to choose, including ROKU with options for free movies from Netflix.

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
