The Starlite Motel

Kerhonkson

What’s new

The light pink façade, redone rooms with hardwood floors plus punchy walls and bedding, and a coffee bar/canteen for refreshments bring the circa 1960s Starlite into the 21st century. Also available to rent: a renovated camper with its own solo stove and picnic area.

Old school cool

Pink-and-black tiled bathrooms, glowing neon sign out front, green glass insets in the exterior brick, and retro-themed (but fully modern) appliances.

Sylvan Motor Lodge

Hillsdale

What’s new

Splashy floral wallpaper in the bathrooms, pastel bedspreads and mid-century modern furnishings.

Old school cool

The place is stocked with an assortment of old card decks and vintage records that guests are free to spin, and original wall desks (which come in handy when Sylvan is rented out for creative retreats).

Spa City Motor Lodge

Saratoga Springs

What’s new

Almost everything was completely rehabbed; the interior courtyard pool was replaced with a communal lounge and coffee bar, all rooms were given a sleek facelift, brick was painted a clean white. The décor? Americana meets art studio.

Old school cool

Originally built in 1963, owners preserved the retro motor lodge structure and vibe, but spiffed up the space for a modern experience.

The Red Rose Motel + Tavern

Roscoe

What’s new

Bright but cozy updated bedrooms, bathrooms wallpapered with old fly fishing manuals, Persian rugs throughout, and an expanded dining room serving local brews.

Old school cool

The circa 1938 tavern bar base was salvaged, vintage barn wood adorns the ceilings in the dining area, and décor in the lounge and bathrooms were all sourced from local antique shops and flea markets, preserving the old-time Catskills vibe.
