With all the good reviews, I decided to book him at this hotel. Boy,was I wrong! All the reviews here must be getting paid for the good reviews. There are cracks in the walls and ceiling, 2/3 of the popcorn on ceiling was gone. Mold and mildew in the bathroom. Loud. Had to wait at least 5 minutes while lady at front desk was talking to her boss on the phone. Breakfast was awful!

Suggest you pay an extra $10 - $15 and go elsewhere.

Everything from the cleanliness to noise to customer service at this establishment was beyond sub par and no one seemed to care. Booked the Comfort Suites not far down the road for my remaining several nights for $2 more a night and was MUCH more comfortable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed 4 nights with sunset inn. We had to make an unexpected trip to NC to say goodbye to our son who was leaving for Afghanistan and always pay out of our budget and not on credit so money was tight. Sunset Inn is an older motel that has been updated and is clean. The hotel staff each morning at breakfast had to double for breakfast staff and hotel desk staff but were still cheerful with guests. We paid for 4 nights what we would normally pay for 2 somewhere else. The hotel was clean and quiet but booked solid. The cost savings allowed us to enjoy doing more things with our son. Breakfast was minimal but appropriate considering the cost savings. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms around back are quieter. Disregard fitness center rating as there isn't one.

The entire facility was wonderful! The room was remodeled and everything was new including the marble counter top and bathroom. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and I was able to get a good nights sleep. The staff was very courtous and seemed happy to help me. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a clean, quiet place to stay.

Very pleased with the courteous staff, service and cleanliness of our room! We've stayed here once before and will again for our next family visit. The location is right in the middle of town. Close to shops and many restaurants. Definitely will recommend to friends and family!

The hotel was very pleasant. The rooms must have just been remodeled they look beautiful. Texas roadhouse was walking distance and walmart. Housekeeping did excellent job bringing me fresh towels and supplies every day. This hotel needs to be part of chain.
