There are only 2 places to stay in Durand and I chose this little place because they had single rooms and didn't charge very much. When I called to reserve (no online booking available- only phone call reservations) I was told they had wifi and the property was non-smoking. The room was very small and dark but clean and cozy.It... More

Thank you for your review of 4 stars for Sunset Motel! We have checked into the wi-fi iissue and have fixed the problem. We will certainly look into the items regarding the bed. The mattresses are hotel quality and are built to last, hence they are firm. New pillows have been placed in that unit and extra pillows are available... More

I was happy to find a place in this isolated area. It turned out to be quite pleasant. We needed a week for a family emergency and they accommodated that need. The room was very clean and well maintained. The bed was too hard for me so I bought a pad and that helped. I had to request a coffee... More

Stayed here over night. Check was friendly and very easy. Reserved the room the night before over the phone. Room was quaint and clean. It was a smaller room, but I had chosen the most basic room available. It did have a fridge and microwave in it. The single room had a full size bed. The price was right and... More

Thank you for your nice review on TripAdvisor. I will personally check out the coffee pots to make sure they are all working properly. The cupboard is provided as a convenience for travelers who have their own dishware and utensils. We will furnish plastic utensils upon request. More

A quaint little old fashioned motel about 30 minutes west of Flint. If you are a large person it might not be for you. Very clean and quiet and a great rate. Was a perfect place for a one night stay before heading to the airport. A short drive to downtown where they have some nice restaurants.

A small, beautifully kept and extremely reasonable motel just off I-69. We'd intended to stay in Flint, but saw no lodging notices near its several exits. Our room was quite small, but clean and well-equipped, including refrigerator and wi-fi. The grounds were blooming with flowers, adding to overall pleasantness. A family-owned small business run by a friendly couple, perfect for... More

On a recent trip to visit my son-in-laws family in Michigan, he found this delightful reminder of the1950's era. What a surprise awaited us--clean,quiet,well kept and wonderful people operate this business. The room was spacious with 2 queen beds, microwave and refrig, an ample sized bathroom. our neighbors were mostly middle aged who did not care that there was no... More

Clean room, great staff, nothing fancy but great for a good night's sleep. A mom and pop place and they take good care of the place and the people that stay there. I would recommend this over the motel just off I69 and this one is only about 1 mile down the road!

We wanted to stay between Lansing and Flint as we had business in both. There are not many options out there but we came across this little place on TA and decided to give it a try. It is a true Mom and Pop place that you rarely see any more. This motel sets in more of a residential area,... More

I was coming in late from the Durand Train Station & decided against traveling home late at night. I made reservations ahead of time & the owners knew it would be late. No problem. Very easy to find from the station and a short distance to McDonalds. Room was clean and very homey. When I Ieft in the morning, I... More
