Each room is unique and well maintained. The owner is very friendly and has owned this property for many years. I had no issues with my room. Very clean and comfortable. I recommend this room to anyone traveling in the Seneca/Sabetha area.

I was headed to Nevada on a cross country trip, and as I've done many times, I'll take the old highways, I've been heading west on US 36 all day and wound up at the starlite motel in Seneca KS (check out the downtown 7 blocks south of route 36) The rooms are small, but very very nice and very...

My husband's hometown is nearby, so when we come back for Alumni functions this is where I always want to stay. The people are sooooo nice. The rooms are small, don't get me wrong, but they are so cozy and CLEAN! Cleaner than you will ever get at a big chain hotel.

Leaving home for a motorcycle ride I changed my trip around and landed back in Seneca at the Starlite Motel. This is a great little motel. Super clean. Park at the door. Each room has a fridge and microwave. They have the bigger bars of soap along with shampoo. The wi-fi had a good strong signal. All for a very...

This was our first time staying at the Starlite and we will definitely make it our first choice when looking for a place to stay when driving US Highway 36 through Kansas. Our room was very pleasant, clean & comfortable. Beyond that we much enjoyed visiting with Lynette, and she made helpful suggestions for us. Highly Recommended!

The Starlite Motel has been there nearly forever, and it's a tiny place with fewer than twenty rooms. The managers have modernized each room, like with wi-fi and charging stations, a microwave and fridge, and so forth. They're also very personable. Not bad!

The lady that checked us in was very sweet. Offered us a discount If we booked two rooms. Let us park our motorcycles in her garage for weather protection and safety. This level of service and caring is unheard of today. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable.

Nice to find an older motel (with the lower rates usually associated with them) that has been totally upgraded! Better amenities than many "new" motels. Every aspect of the room was modernized. Unlike many motels, the desk has power outlets and even USB charging ports right on the desktop. A great alarm clock, intuitive to set. Small but very clean...

“They're pretty much the same, the back side might have less highway noise.”

“We were on the front, but were not bothered by road noise. The bed was queen-sized, and we are tall people, but we can make it work for a night or two. We did not have an iron or ironing board in our room. We didn't ask if any were available to borrow. As it turned out, we didn't need to iron anything, but if you anticipate needing to iron your clothes, you'll want to check on this first.”

“If you're on a motorcycle, you can get in the shade at the west end on the front side.”

“I would ask for a room in the back as it is located close to the highway through town. Trucks can be heard periodically.”

“No room service, but we love walking over (less than 100 steps) to the Windmill Steak House. We try to get in before they close for the salad bar and great steaks! We also will be playing the Spring Creek Golf Course tomorrow. The 3 holes we toured tonight in a golf cart (back nine) look impressive!”
