While the room we were given had all that we needed for two nights of sleep, it still left much to be desired. The bedding seemed clean enough, but the carpet was heavily stained and appeared filthy. Amenities were lacking. No phone and the clock was a windup. The alarm didn't work. Fortunately, we had a cell phone with an... More

Decided to book on the advice of reviewers here. Absolutely what I expected and reviews of the proprietors was spot on. Place was quiet, comfy, good TV, hot shower and good towels. Clean too.. Great value and a gem of an old school motel..

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Sunset Motel. I loved the vintage furniture and decor, it was exactly what I look for in a Route 66 motel. The room was clean and well-maintained. The bed was so comfortable that I didn't want to get up in the morning. The lady at the check-in counter was very friendly and... More

My husband and I were traveling cross country. We were not sightseeing. This motel is a Route 66 motel. It has been owned by the same family since its inception in 1959. The front desk lady was very friendly and helpful. We were a little leery about the area. My husband and I felt pretty safe. I would not recommend... More

What a perfect little Route 66 Motel!!!! It was so adorable. Very clean, and neat. Furniture was amazing. Nice plush white towels. Brand new, crisp Cotten sheets. Breakfast set up was great. There was a frig, microwave and coffee maker in the room which is a rarity for these little Motels. The Sunset Motel gets our vote for trip favorite!!!!

This is an Old Route 66 motel which has been lovingly brought back to life. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, coffee and mini refrigerator in the room, healthy continental breakfast. Staff and owners go out of their way to be helpful. They are pet friendly! We will be back!
