Very nice CLEAN motel. Beautiful sunset views from the deck directly on the water. Room was updated & comfortable and had everything we needed. Loved having popcorn! Easy check-in. Absolutely a hidden gem and will stay again when in the area!

Absolutely love this place! You simply cannot be any more "on the water". Sherry texted us each day to see if she can get us anything to make our stay better. Place is renovated and clean as a whistle. Room opens to back deck and is amazing with a sunset each night. Love it there! Highly recommend!

Was greeted by Chris soon after our arrival and had a wonderful conversation with her. The room was clean and neat and the view was beautiful across the bay. Chris made us feel right at home and there where no issues at all. After a wonderful dinner we enjoyed ourselves and a breathtaking sunset on the deck out back over the water. Was in town for the Henderson Harbor Triathlon and would for sure stay here next year without question,

You will be "greeted" I mean bitten and mauled by managers dog attempting to pay for your stay. When it rains the smell of raw sewage engolfs all hotel rooms on lake. I don't believe the showers have ever been cleaned. Its a below the low place to stay.

Stayed at the Sunset motel for one night and absolutely loved the spot. Right on the water with beautiful sunset views and a lovely lake breeze. The rooms were newly renovated and clean and the motel is walking distance to a lovely lakeside restaurant down the street. Check-in was done without ever seeing any staff but was fluid and easy nonetheless.

Modern, updated and very clean room with a spectacular view of the lake. Very
relaxing and peaceful. The odd situation was that there is no manager on site.
The owner will text you the code to get into your room and is available if you need anything (via phone). Unless you are a fisherman or enjoy sitting in a bar, there really is nothing to do. I, personally, love the isolation, but not everyone does.

Hi Pat! Thank you for stopping in to see us in our first season! We came up with the idea with the digital keypads for the doors after we stayed in motel near the Adirondack's. It fit our situation with only owning the "motel" side, as traditionally The Sunset filled both sides of the road, motel overlooking the water and then a house, cabins, pool and office on the other (which is no longer operating). I am glad you enjoyed your stay, if you are passing through again we hope to see you! Thank you, Michelle

In years passed, we have stayed at the Sunset Hotel. We stopped going there a couple of years ago because it was run down, dirty, and was in bad need of many many upgrades. We passed through Henderson Harbor this past June and were delighted to see someone working on the rooms. We stopped and talked to the gentleman and he told us he was Tyler, one of the new owners. He said he was going to totally re doing the bathrooms, the floors, the beds... everything. We just made it back to Henderson Harbor this past weekend and we stayed at the Sunset. The owner did exactly what he said he was going to do!! The improvements are remarkable The bathroom had a new tub /shower unit, a new toilet, new vanity, everything was brand new! And it was decorated so nice. The room had new hardwood floors, new tv. new comfy beds, and the linens were clean and fresh. It looked like a different place!! Very nice! We were fortunate to meet the owner's wife, Michelle. She kept our room tidy and made sure that we had fresh towels daily. She was very sweet and so accommodating. It is so nice to meet people who truly care about their guests and want to make them happy. We are all ready booked for our next stay! We can't wait to return to this beautiful spot in Henderson Harbor!! If you have stayed at the Sunset in years past, you too will be delighted with the tremendous improvements that these young people have made!!

Hi Debbie! We are so happy that you stopped by in June! It is so nice to have guests who have stayed in the past return to give us "another chance". We have worked hard and appreciate your feedback. Since your stay we have completed the landscaping, Kayak/Canoe launch and the renovated boat docks that were completed in September! We are looking forward to seeing you next year! Take care, Tyler and Michelle

Hi! Yes, we have availability on Monday the 25th. The Motel is under new ownership and is completely renovated! The motel overlooks Lake Ontario. Rooms 1-5 exit onto the new deck which has Adirondack chairs to watch the gorgeous sunset and stairs that lead to two boat docks. From the docks you are welcome to fish or swim in the fresh water bay. At this time we do not offer boat or canoe rentals. If you are looking into going to the beach, there are State Parks nearby, Southwick and Westcott. Thank you, Michelle
