Belying an unassuming exterior and reception lobby, Sunrise has beautifully appointed rooms, each with a view. Rooms are beautifully maintained and the staff is friendly. The ocean is just across the street and you can hear and see the tide or step out for a walk along the beach. We stayed just after Labor Day when the town was quiet... More

Stayed here over summer and it was perfectly fine for our needs. Right on ocean, rocky shore immediately at motel but an easy walk to sandy beach. Went with 2 college aged children and we had plenty of room. In third floor suite and our room was not one of the renovated featured on website. No air conditioner in the... More

A friend and I stayed here for two nights in late August 2015. The service was friendly, the 2 double bed room on the first floor was lovely, immaculate, nicely appointed, and had a terrific bathroom and a great shower. The beach is right across the street, but you have to walk down steps and end up on rocks, so... More

The weather wasn't the best but then it really doesn't matter when you have the view of the ocean all day/all night. Second floor accommodations were great. Very comfortable and quiet. The office staff and maid staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Looking forward to heading back up in early November

We hadn't gotten a chance to go back to The Sunrise Motel in a few years. Since then, it has been remodeled. We like it a few years ago but now it is even better and at a fair price. We had a kings size bed that was so comfortable with a room that had an efficiency kitchen and plenty... More

We recently rented a room at the Sunrise Motel. The room was very clean with everything that we needed. The location is great. We really enjoyed our stay. When I got home and realized that I forgot my pillow, I decided to call the office. The gentleman working at the office was most helpful. He sent my pillow back home... More

Dear tonid978, Well thank you very much for your wonderful review. We do strive to provide our customers with stellar customer service without stripping the front desk clerk's individual personality from their process.

Stayed 3 nights, had access to nice deck overlooking the beach and terrific "sunrises". Room wasn't luxurious, but was all we needed for relaxing and getting a good night sleep. A pool would have been nice; but with the beach literally across the street; we didn't miss having one. Plan to go back to York again next year and will... More

Although there has been a supposed 'upgrade' the Sunrise Motel is in shambles. The beds feel as if they are 2" of foam on top of wood. Despite the high prices, you had better make sure that you keep your expectations very low, both in terms of amenities and customer service. Expecting a nice sandy beach? Nope - the photos... More

Great motel. Super friendly and helpful staff. Conveniently located across from the beach. Close to the town and on the Trolleys path as well. Rooms were clean and housekeeping was very efficient. My room had a kitchenette and was just the perfect size for anything you needed to do. I would absolutely stay here again and again.
