The Sunset Motel is a 50's retro version of a typical mom 'n pop motel. Fun decor in office and friendly, efficient reception. Our room was very small and basic. It was clean and functional. The shower was nice and the WiFi worked well. On the downside, the room felt crowded. The beds were okay but the mattresses had a... More

As a native to Brevard who moved away several years ago to pursue a career in heavy civil construction, it was so nice to come back home and see a familiar site. Over the past several years it seems like every time that I would return to Brevard some old land mark or family business had been torn down in... More

I am very surprised to see all of the positive reviews for this hotel. It takes creative marketing to call this a 'boutique hotel', when in fact it is just a cheap hotel. I have nothing against cheap hotels, just those who pretend they are not. We had no hot water for a period of time and the decorations are... More

We apologize for inconvenience. The hot water was down for 35 minutes in mid-afternoon because a nearby tub valve broke and we had to shut the water off long enough to replace it. As for the rest of the comments, I'm sorry that you didn't find us up to your taste standards but thanks for giving us a try anyway... More

I checked out Sunset Motel's website before booking. I didn't want to stay at the usual hotel chain. I loved the look of the Sunset Motel, so we booked the upstairs unit. There was plenty of space in the unit; nice kitchen, sitting area, and table. The separate bedroom had a very comfortable bed. Loved it!

A recent trip to Brevard to visit with friends who highly recommended we stay at the Sunset Motel. We are glad we did! The owner, Lori, has done a wonderful job with this gem pf a place. We stayed a week in room #6. King bed, small refrigerator, microwave, tub/shower, sofa and TV. The place is spotless, well-maintained, friendly staff... More

While in Brevard last week, we stopped in at the Sunset Motel to get some info on local restaurants and to show our friend his neat place. Our friend enjoyed seeing the Retro and Vintage atmosphere which has been created by the owner. And, we got a great recommendation for a perfect lunch place in downtown Brevard. Our lunch at...

We had a nice two night stay at the Sunset Motel this weekend. the place was just what we expected- a jump back in time to motels with character- the owners have done a lot to make sure the amenities you expect are there with a retro feel. We were able to easily walk to the main shopping and dining... More

Looking for unique, quaint and retro... This is it! My family stayed here while touring the local waterfalls and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quiet, clean and nicely decorated. We will be back Sunset Motel! ❤ "the tan family"

This is a great little old-fashioned motel nicely updated but with old fashioned rates! Close to town-you can walk to the cute shops and restaurants. A convenient and very nice alternative to the big box places farther out.

Back kitchenette room not remodeled as well as front rooms. Spent one night but bed was too noisy to get a good nights sleep. Be sure you inspect room before renting. It is a very old place. They moved us to a front room for the remainder of our stay. It was ok, although the person next to the air... More
