Just returned from a trip to Brevard, NC where we spent several nights at the Sunset Motel. If you're looking for exceptional cleanliness, friendly staff & great prices, this is the place for you. So convenient to downtown & outdoor areas for hiking & mountain biking. Retro décor make it a fun place for your vacation.

Sunset Motel was a bit quirky but a solid place to stay at a low price. Make sure to look at their specials during the winter on their website. We got a room with kitchenette and aht cut down on cost even more.

Arrived in Brevard, NC and spotted this motel. After checking in we entered our cute room, which was decorated in the 50's retro look. Very clean and very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend staying here. And the price was right.

We were looking for a home in the area and stayed at the Sunset Motel twice. The room was extremely clean, bed was comfortable, coffee pot in room (they even had decaf in the office) and the price was right. The staff were always friendly and quick with a recommendation on where to eat or visit. I would definitely recommend... More

The motel is a more-or-less refurbished 1950s place, and the theme extends to the 45s in the lobby. The room was small -- no chair at all -- and the bed was uncomfortable. The sink didn't drain properly, the drapes didn't open, the knob for the shower was broken/loose, and it looked like someone had tried to pry the inside... More

We decided to come here for a quick weekend stay in Brevard. This place was better than other local hotels/motels. The theme is awesome and the neon sign sold me! The bed was very nice and comfortable, along with a couch and tv in the room. The refrigerator was not working though, but that won't stop us from returning because... More

Still lovin the digs, stayed in different rooms for fun. Owner Lori has made something truly special. No one was crowding out Conestee Falls or Hooker Falls in December. Perfect breakfast a block from motel at the Blue Ridge Bakery who remembered me so kindly from last visit. I will be back. Tidy, cleaner than most, playful decor.

You needn't have been raised in the 60's to appreciate the ambiance of The Sunset Motel. Stepping into the office, a smile played upon my lips from the '60's eye candy. The exterior and landscaping were clean and welcoming with retro porch chairs and colorful paint. Our room was also very clean and spacious. Truly felt our stay couldn't have... More

Thank you for writing such a glowing review. We really appreciate it when guests like you bother to take the time to help out small businesses like The Sunset. I noticed your comment about the "unwritten" towel replacement. There should have been a sign in your bathroom. There is also a sign on the front desk in a frame and... More

The team here is amazing, so friendly. The price is great and you can't beat the location. The rooms are simple, but the perfect place to jump off to hike or mountain bike. They are mountain bike friendly, they have a place to wash your bike and they said it was okay to keep your bike in the room.
