I have had the pleasure of staying at the Starlight each and every summer for the past 25 years. We usually stay for 8 nights. The place has motel rooms plus efficiencies/suites which sleeps six, if you count the sofa bed. After Hurricane Sandy, I was happy to see that the Starlight made a huge effort to remodel all the...

After Superstorm Sandy decimated the Jersey Shore, particular areas were slow to come back from the disaster; Ortley Beach was one of those places, though not for lack and love from business people and family's that did not want their beloved Jersey Shore memories and families that returned year after year to not have a place to return. Such was... More

I have stayed at the Starlight several times over the years for short getaways. This year I was so thankful the motel completed all renovations needed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. With all the destruction still visable on the surrounding streets of Ortley, I was so happy to have a place to stay so I could enjoy one of... More

Short walking distance to the beach and a great stay with the extended family. No worries about the kids walking for ice cream or to the other very close food venues. Clean and surprisingly quiet, we highly recommend this well run and affordable motel. Nice heated pool and plenty of outdoor seating space to gather in the evening, we definitely... More

I was heading back to the jersey shore last weekend for the first time since Hurricane Sandy and after many years being away. I wasn't really sure what to expect. But we found a room at the Starlight and it was a great experience. First of all, I want to say that the owners were really accommodating. They have a... More

Loved this place. Friendly staff. Very clean. Close to Seaside, Point Pleasant and a block from the beach. We stayed in an apartment and it was worth the extra money. Had a full kitchen. Cleanest and biggest bathroom at the beach ever.

I stayed in one of the luxury suites for several months due to a job assignment. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, and other cooking utensils. The suite has a great layout, with a separate bedroom. The in-room washer and dryer was a great convenience. Grills are provided and the courtyard , with tables and umbrellas, is a... More

This Motel was very clean and updated inside. I had a regular king room which comes with a mini fridge and microwave. The bed was comfy, the TV had a bunch of channels and the pool was heated and had plenty of open lounge chairs. The beach is only 2 blocks away and the mini gold course across the street... More
