This is a wonderful, out of the way motel that really brings back memories of what it used to be like traveling as a child. We are a family of 4 and stayed one night in a two queen room. This is not supposed to be a 5-star hotel. This is a quaint motel that takes you back in time.... More

I was on a Road-Trip of a life-time, trying to sample some 'Road less travelled' and Authentic Americana from yesteryear and found this wonderful motel that looked like something from a movie-set and lived up to my every expectation! Great welcome from staff AND owner who you knew wanted you to enjoy every moment of your stay. The rooms were... More

Wow! What lavish praise you bestowed upon us. Thank you very much. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. It means a great deal. You must have been staying in one of deluxe double queens, the apartment or the cottage if it was spacious (hint to all of you reading this). More

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset a few weeks back when I was in town to ride the Fletcher Flyer. This place is everything it promises to be: clean, classic, comfortable and affordable. The retro decor was great and we felt right at home from the moment we pulled in. I'm a big fan of neon, and their... More

Pros: Price and convenience of location, very clean, helpful staff, quirky, frig in rooms Cons: Small rooms, low res tv We found this place on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. The best part was the honest opinions about the surrounding sites and places of interest. The motel... More

Thank you for your honest assessment of your experience at The Sunset. Your praise is much appreciated. If you come back, book one of the deluxe double queens, the apartment, the king or the cottage if you would like a more spacious room. Thanks again! Lori More

Arrived for the weekend and we enjoyed a wonderful sweet stay! I thought I had made an online reservation, when in fact I had not! However, owner was quite nice and gave us a wonderful room for both nights! We will definitely go back! It's close to downtown, we walked alot, and is also convenient to Dupont Forest!

This little boutique motel has been renovated and retrofitted to its original 1950s-era glory, with some 21st-century conveniences included. The rooms come in a variety of sizes, and we rented one of the larger ones with two beds. Ours had pink tile on the bathroom walls and tiny black and white tiles on the floor (room 14). The bathroom has... More

This quaint lil' motel was like a picture out of a family memory book! It was like we stepped back in time. For me it was like the first beach motel I stayed at in Florida in the 50's! Wow!

My wife and I drive all over the US and Canada, and check into a half-dozen motels every week we're on the road. We prefer to stay in retro, court-layout motels that feature parking at the door of your room. The Sunset Motel takes retro a happy step further with 1950s-themed rooms that harmonize with the architecture. This place is... More

A friend and I were on a road trip and wanted to stay in a real, old fashioned motel. We were so happy to find the Sunset.

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
