Weekend at the starlight
Check in with easy check out was even easier. The room was very sufficient for needs is large enough. Very nice size bathroom if I’m up that way again I will definitely stay there.

Two night stay
We were a bit worried about the noise from the next room. The weather had us back indoors for a bit, and music was blaring. After we returned from dinner though, it was quiet. The room was cute, the location convenient. Our room had 2 conditioners and a leftover chocolate bar in the freezer, but we had our own toiletries so no big deal. I am sure if we'd ask they'd have provided shampoo.

The Starlight is just adorable! We stayed in the Brad & Angelina room and loved its coziness. Super clean, easy check-in and out process and very affordable as compared to hotel chains in the area. I will stay there again when we visit Burlington again in the future.

Great stay as always, but those pillows
We enjoy staying at this hotel and try to do so every time we visit Burlington. Very clean and comfortable, except for the pillows. That’s the one drawback and the one thing holding starlight back from being an exceptional stay. We will return in the fall. Hopefully the pillows will be a bit more comfortable then

Nice place! The cardboard cutouts are very funny. Breakfast place, “The Guilty Plate” across the road is very good.
