What a great find the Sunset Motel was! We really did not have a set destination for tonight but stumbled upon this place on Yelp and then checked it out on TripAdvisor. We were definitely pleased! First of all, it is very easy to find, right at a main intersection on the west side of town. We arrived at night... More

This wonderful facility has been gently restored to a modern facility with all the creature comforts I expect when I travel. The rooms are spacious and clean and equipped with coffee makers, microwaves, refrigerators and of course new flat screen TV's . The beds are very comfortable and linens appear new. The staff is amazing. They have accommodated my every... More

The room size was fine, but the base on the beds was a straight down wooden base which prevented getting closer to the edge of the bed while standing by it. There was also limited shelf/counter space in the bathroom. But, when you need a nice place to stay in Brevard, this is a good choice.

Terrific hostess, nostalgic decor, terrific service, walking distance to all of Brevard's great restaurants and shopping. So much nicer staying here, as opposed to the generic and boring "big box" motels with no character. Another added bonus, for cyclists, is the on site bike wash. Best old fashioned motel ever. Stay there!!!

I am afraid that if I tell you how nice this place is, I will never get a chance to go there again because it will be too popular!!! The Sunset Motel is a very cute retro motel straight out of the 1950s - Lori the owner has tried very well to keep it campy - complete with the pink... More

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
