#1 of 2 hotels in Big Indian
Travellers' Choice
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!

Hotel's Favourite
The room is large, clean and comfortable. Nice sized kitchen. All rooms have a back door leading to a small picnic area for each room. Needs some updating (curtains, etc) BUT still such a great value. Contactless check-in as well. Would definitely stay again.

We loved our stay at Starlite, the owners were very accommodating and helpful. Cute motel with a full kitchen and really fun outdoor spaces both in front and out back. Couldn't hear our neighbors at all and our dog really loved it too. Truly fulfilled all of our needs and comforts.

We had a very nice experience here. The rooms were clean, and the backyard patio area was spacious and bordered by a forested hill. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. They were also pet friendly
