We have stayed in the Sunshine Inn many times for about three years. It has all the amenities a tourist looks for. The owner and staff have been very helpful when we have had health issues, and have always been super friendly. The rooms are 5 star clean and the bathroom always has nice fresh towels, non slip bath tub... More

As everyone has posted this Inn is just average. However the room was clean appeared to be recently updated. The tub was super deep. Wouldn't do an extended stay here but worth one night. Breakfast was nothing special.

This was an unremarkable motel, everything about it was average. A little dark and drab but seemed clean. It lacked in toiletry's, but had free wifi, tv, microwave, fridge, and a very small bathroom. Outside access to rooms.

This is an adequate hotel ... though the bed in my room didn't rate high on the comfort scale! The young lady at the desk on the 2nd day was very helpful - trying to find a plug for the bathtub as I'm not a shower fan. Though she never succeeded - it wasn't for lack of trying. Liked the... More

Very quiet place. The man who checked us in was very kind and even offered to switch our rooms to get us the same number of beds for less money. Our first room in the east building turned out to be old and have a strong smell of chemical cleaners and perfumed air freshener, but was reasonably clean. The other... More

Had a distinctly average stay here. Was a little weirded out when the person at the front desk loudly said my room number while other people were there. Rooms were clean and well set-up. Guests are asked not to have visitors after 10:30PM, which really makes me wonder what it was that made that rule come in to place?

There is nothing really to report as the title sums it up for me. Clean room stocked with the basic's amenities. The check in was quick, if your on the 2nd level be prepared for stairs only- Skip the breakfast if your a healthy eater.

Booked this hotel for a wedding in July. Going by the reviews and pictures of the other motels in Burns Lake this seemed like the best choice. Our room was on the second floor with outside corridor, not a problem for us but for older people or handicapped there is no elevator. Room and bathroom were clean, nothing fancy. There... More

The Sunshine is an older motel, but fairly well maintained. Right on the highway. We didn't notice a lot of road noise, although we did hear a train or two roll by. It is fine for an over night road stop. Our room was clean, bed was comfortable, water was hot. What more can you ask for one night?!
