I am almost hesitant to let the word out on this little gem in Big Pine, CA. Close to the bustling metropolis of Bishop and some 40 minutes from Lone Pine, CA where hotel rates always seem to sky rocket due the proximity of Mt Whitney and The Alabama Hills (many movies filmed here). There are new owners at the...

When we arrived at the hotel the owner Tushar, gave us probably the warmest welcome that we can remember from any of the hotels that we have ever stayed at. We really enjoyed our stay, although short just 2 nights and thoroughly recommend this to a anyone if you are staying in Big Pine.

This motel will not disappoint. I highly recommend Starlight for its very clean and quiet rooms. And the hospitality of the owners, Tushar and his wife Carol is second to none. They will bend over backwards to please. It's the little touches that separate this establishment from the big box hotels. You'll feel like you've known these kind folks for...

Tushar and his wife could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was AWESOME. Juice and snacks were provided before we hit the road. Could not have been more pleased with our experience.

Tushar and his wife are such a welcoming hosts, the motel room is spotlessly clean with new beautiful wood floors. We stayed 2 nights, and The Starlight Motel will now be our motel of first choice on highway 395.

I was a little skeptical when we pulled into the parking lot but, I was pleasantly surprised. The owner was very accommodating and brought our son a cot. Also, he brought some snacks and juice. Also, dogs were allowed which was a plus. The room was clean and warm. Don't judge a book by its cover:)

Tushar is very warm and friendly. You can tell the moment you walk through the lobby as there’s a sign that says guests are treated as friends. He means it. Very accommodating and considerate man. He and his wife go out of his way to make his guests/friends feel welcomed to their inn. We can’t say we’ve ever had as...
