Quaint, very clean, comfortable bed, sitting area with couch and tv, near downtown Brevard...what's not to like? Not to mention the 50's/60's decor brought back memories of vacations as a child. If the toiletries had been a little nicer, I would have given 5 stars. But hey, I'll just bring my own next time. Would definitely stay here again!

I can't say enough of the wonderful customer service, cleanliness, and quiet calm get away we experienced. We enjoyed a long weekend in Western North Carolina and the Sunset was one of the biggest highlights. Before we even reached home we vowed to visit again and the Sunset is where we will lay our heads. Just moments from a pub,... More

We stayed for two nights after New Years and the accommodation was cozy. Since the hotel was built in the 1950's, the room we stayed in was a little on small side but would not deter us from staying again. We have been trying to get into this place since we discovered two years ago and in my opinion was... More

I spent a weekend in October at this quaint motel. Having driven by on previous visits to the area with my family and having noticed the incredibly convenient location, I decided to try staying for a solo, get away trip. I asked for one of the small rooms on the back side of the motel and was happy with my... More

The people in office are all very nice. The Motel itself is just OK. Pros: Good beds, interesting decor, location, cost. The Cons: thin walls (heard a girl crying her eyes out in the room next to me for several hours), bad coffee, meager toiletries. I suppose you get what you pay for...

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Motel for three nights recently during our visit to Brevard. The 50's style motel has been nicely remodeled and is a good location near downtown. Our double queen room was clean and sufficiently roomy with comfortable bedding, including three pillows per bed. It had a small refrigerator, cable TV and reliable Wifi.... More

Recently we stayed here while doing extensive hiking and seeing the waterfalls in the area. The hotel isn't bad from the outside, it's rather unique. We were just very disappointed in our room. The price seemed to be very high for what we got. The room tended to be a little outdated, unfortunately no breakfast in the morning which we... More

Constructive criticism can be difficult to accept but your review honestly points out a problem I wasn't aware of. We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and please know we will address the mattress issue once we figure out which room you are referring to. Letting us know the room number would be much appreciated. More

The Sunset is a unique experience compared to other chain hotels. Lori has done a fantastic job of taking an old vintage motel and bringing up to standards while maintaining the charm of a 50s era motel. The beds were comfortable and for the price it can't be beat.

Loved the room but for those with dogs be aware the room will not be in the front facing the street. This wasn't a big deal though as there is a nice area to walk your dog(s) in the back where the room was located. We brought out two little mini dachshunds for an overnight trip to see the colors...
