When we stayed at the Sunset Motel in Brevard, N.C. earlier this year, we were so impressed with the creativity with which Lori and her staff had decorated this quaint motel! So, when we learned she had entered Sunset Motel in the Fresh Ideas Contest, we wanted to emphasize what a great lil' motel this is and to encourage others... More

My husband and I stayed there for one night this week. The small room was NOT fancy but VERY clean. My only issue was the bed. The mattress was great but the box spring or the frame (not sure which one) creaked and popped on every move. So every time one of us rolled over, during the night, the noise... More

Motel is a great deal. Loved the Mid Century Modern decor, and rooms were super clean. Just what we were looking for. Brevard is a great town and is so lucky to have the Sunset there. I would definitly stay there again. One minor complaint were the very loud couple in next room who decided to take their argument to... More

This old motel is right out of the 50's! We loved being able to park at our front door and not have anyone above or below us. The motel is old, but it has been spiffed up with a 50's theme. The room was very clean and the beds must be new and are super comfy! You can check in... More

We rented three rooms here in early August, 2014. I looked at all three rooms. Each was neat, clean, with refreshing, artistic decor--clearly the work of an owner who knew her art. The price was reasonable, everything worked, and it had a fun, quirky feel to it. I would highly recommend it.

Stopped during a motorcycle trip, Lori the owner was very gracious and accommodating. Very enjoyable stay. Loved the room very 50's. Will definitely stay again next year. Cannot say enough. Brevard has a vey bohemian atmosphere. Refreshing

I have stayed at the Sunset Motel several times over the past 6 months. Lori knows my name and is unfailingly friendly. I've had different rooms each time and each room was sparking clean. The beds are comfortable, the decor varies from room to room and is fun and interesting. It's like taking a step back in time - the... More

Every room is different. Some are quieter, some are noisier, some have better wifi. Each is decorated special. Last time we were in the wonderful cabin. This time we were in one of the rooms on the backside, perfect as we wanted to be away from traffic noise. The backside rooms are sheltered from the rumble of cars. I think... More

Wow! Thanks for a great review! We are pleased that you appreciate our originality. We are always on the look-out for fun kitschy decor to put in rooms so they are ever-changing. We are glad you enjoy our cottage. It is one of our most requested options. We hope to see you again! Lori More

Clean rooms, cute decor and quiet neighborhood surroundings made our 3-day stay just perfect! A real nice respite from the typical chain hotel/motel scene. Definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting any of the surrounding parks and the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sunset Motel is a hip, unique 50's roadside motel that has been "retrovated" with modern amenities (Wifi,mini fridge,microwave,coffee maker,blow dryer,flat-screen TV,HBO,Cable). Our little blast-from-the-past is centrally located between DuPont & Pisgah Forests and within walking distance to downtown. Each room is unique and all but one are on ground-level, some with kitchens/kitchenettes and porches with vintage chairs to lounge about or strike up a conversation with other guests over a glass of wine or mug of brew. Personality plus the best of Southern hospitality. Come as our guest. Leave as our friend! ... more   less
