My husband and I stayed here for three nights and had a great experience. Every room has a movie star name on it with photos and posters of the star in the room. Quirky, but fun! Right next door to a drive in movie theater, which we also went to. It was a real throwback to the days of small motels and drive in movies. About 12 minutes to downtown Burlington. Highly recommended.

The room was very clean and nicely appointed. We just came from a Hyatt in Montreal and we thought the Starlight was nicer then there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. For breakfast, go to Athens Diner - also in Colchester, about 10 minutes away. Well worth it. Pete and Susie Ostwald, Delmar, NY

We stayed at the Starlight Inn for just one night. The room was clean and very spacious. Each room has a different theme and our just happened to be John Wayne. It was this uniqueness that was truly nice. Would I stay here again? Most definitely.

Charming place next door to the drive-in theater. The VIP suite was spacious and spotless with well thought through decor. The sofa mattress was uncomfortable, but the bed was great. Bar stools at the counter were unsteady, but definitely a great add-on to the ambiance. Customer service was incredible. Seamless check in/check out. Free drive-in theater admission was a pleasant surprise and a must-see. The place is truly 5 star for its class and 10 star for the amount of thought that went into it. However, I found it to be overpriced for the accommodations ( hence the missing star). Thank you for the lovely stay!

Nice clean hotel. Close to Lake Champlain. Manager had an attitude on the phone when asking for early check in. Motel was close to Burlington and plenty to do in the area. About 8 miles from BTV. The rooms were updated with nice shower. Cleaning person was very nice and pleasant.

I have loved drive-ins for decades, so it was a no-brainer to choose a stay at the Starlight Inn. We made sure the drive-in next door was open, since it's free to see a show or two during your stay! Check-in was a four-hour window, which we managed, and we stayed in the Brad and Angelina room. (Be prepared, though, if you bring your family: my son didn't even know who Brad and Angelina were, so not really current stars.) Not really much theming - just random pix on the walls - but we loved reading the stars on the doors, and seeing what other stars were available in other rooms. ZERO contact check-in during pandemic was especially nice. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable, although I am sensitive to the heat from foam beds and would definitely bring my own pillow next time. After five hours of driving and two drive-in movies, though, I got plenty of sleep! SUPER clean, spacious and comfortable. Beautiful little town and really fun experience. Would love to do this again if I ever get the chance!

A find for sure. Stayed one night solo in the John Wayne room . This motel is about seven min by car from Burlington, it is clean , comfortable and reasonably priced. This is "Lodging Gold" in my estimation. Also, the rooms are far from bare bones; my room was nicely updated, fridge, microwave, small coffee maker etc. If you are looking for fancy then drive 7 min down the road and pay 3 times as much. This is all I need. Well done.

This motel is about 5 minutes north of Burlington. Stayed in the Brad & Angelina room (2 queen beds) with the family. The spacious room was very clean with a very large flatscreen on the wall. Fridge and coffee maker also in the room. The towels were actually large and plush. The bed was extremely comfortable, best sleep I had in a long time. Next door is a drive in theater where hotel guests can go for free. We went both nights of our stay. Great place!

The motel is just outside Burlington Vermont, if that's your thing. Free drive-in movie, very clean room. The rest of this is just to make the 200 character minimum for a review. There really isn't more to say.

Passing through town and found this gem. Stayed in John Wayne room. Room was very clean. Paint on walls were a celery color, no boring wallpaper and dingy white walls. The rooms are themed which was kinda cool and fun. The drive in next door wasn’t crazy or loud. The grounds were clean and quiet neighborhood. Felt safe walking around. The owners were fantastic. I felt welcomed the moment I walked into the office. Great place. Give it a try you won’t be disappointed
