The couple that owns the Sunset Motel take pride in the cleanliness of their place. It is not fancy,but, it is clean,safe and a great value! My wife and I stayed there last Nov. and this Aug. and will stay again if we are near the area. They are motorcycle friendly and their suggestion of going to Nacho's for dinner... More

This motel has been owned by the same family for years. Debbie told me her husband grew up there. The rooms are spotless, the bed comfortable and there is plenty of room to park. I had my dog with me and we spent time sitting on their lovely patio. There is even a grill there if you wish to cook... More

Stopped in for overnight stay on way home to Austin. The owners really cared about my stay and got me set up even though we would be pulling in after midnight. My two kids were tired getting out of the car, but as soon as we entered our room they were instantly happy. Very cool retro motel off Route 66,... More

We were on our way to Park City and stopped for the night because it looked so good on Trip Advisor! And it was even better than described. The motif was mid century and had clean and updated bathrooms. The most amazing feature was the little patio between the buildings. I loved it! The owner was very informed about where... More

It's rare to see a motel where the owners really care. Clearly they are proud of their little place in history and want your your stay to be homey and comfortable. The rooms are clean and it's easy to park. Debbie is such a gem.Skip the chains and give this home away from home a try!

After driving Route 66 across the country, we wanted to experience a bit of the past by staying at a classic vintage motel. I believe they were called "tourist courts" back in the day. We selected this one based on Trip Advisor reviews. The wonderful reviews were spot on! This is truly a hidden gem! We were greeted by the... More

This is real find, much better than most of the chain hotels. The room was very clean and that is coming from a clean freak who is never comfortable with the cleanliness of a hotel room. The desk clerk was helpful and although this is a vintage hotel, the room had everything we could need, including good beds and thick... More

What a gem. After a very long day of driving to help my daughter and family move from California to Tulsa we arrived in the wee hours for some needed shut eye. We had stayed here before, so we booked three rooms two weeks ahead. Travel day we called at dinner time and said we were held up by bad... More

We stopped here because of the reviews. It was right on. Really enjoyed our stay. Very clean for a older place. Employee's very friendly. Our only complaint was that the bed was so comfortable it was hard to get up. Enjoyed the retro furniture they used. Brought back a lot of good memories. Thank you for the great hospitality.

Clean comfortable rooms, good WIFI, friendly helpful service. Not flashy just a nice place to stay. Great for traveling families, ample parking and close to restaurants. Hard to believe this motel has been under the same family management since it was built in the 1950's.
