Overall, we were happy with our stay here. The price was good, our room was mostly clean and the location was great. I say mostly because there was some mold on our shower curtain, but I informed the staff and it was attended to. There were some minor things in our room that appeared to be in disrepair, like paint... More

The motel is in 50's/60's themed retro vibe from the sign outside to the room decor. We stayed in room 8, a clean and comfortable room with good, basic amenities. The staff at check-in and check-out were very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a huge room in a modern hotel, Marriott style, this ain't it, if you're looking... More

Nick, judging by your comments, it sounds like you get the essence of who we are and what we offer - a quaint "retrovated" mid-century motor court offering a unique personal experience for those who want to spend most of their money on what they do while in Brevard, NC, not where they stay. Come as a guest but leave... More

A delightful change from the big hotel chains. Reminds me of family trip motels in the 50s/60s. Very helpful staff. Good location. All the basics for a good nights rest. Looking forward to staying in their "seasonal tent" in October.

From the minute you walk into the lobby to register, you'll feel like you've walked back in time. But this is all good as the owner has renovated this charming "days gone by" motel. It's very clean and within a short walk to all that downtown Brevard has to offer - great restaurants and shops. It's a great place to... More

A list minute need for a roof over my head before camping took me to the Sunset Motel. Don't waste your time at a major chain when you can stay in a gem like this! It's like time travel back to the 1950's. Walk to town for breakfast or shopping and close to everything great about the Mt. Pisgah region.

This was a wonderful, quaint, relic from the past that was perfect for us. We had side by side rooms with friends, sat outside on the breezeway and really enjoyed the cute "front yard". The rooms were great, clean and roomy, the best beds we've slept in in a long time! The staff, especially John, was more than friendly and... More

I was a little apprehensive from the photos, but this little gem was the ideal spot for my daughter and me to spend the night before dropping her off at an area sleepaway camp. The location is perfect--downtown Brevard is walking distance. The price is absolutely right. The rooms were decorated with a tongue-in-cheek nod to mid-century contempo style, but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sunset Motel is a hip, unique 50's roadside motel that has been "retrovated" with modern amenities (Wifi,mini fridge,microwave,coffee maker,blow dryer,flat-screen TV,HBO,Cable). Our little blast-from-the-past is centrally located between DuPont & Pisgah Forests and within walking distance to downtown. Each room is unique and all but one are on ground-level, some with kitchens/kitchenettes and porches with vintage chairs to lounge about or strike up a conversation with other guests over a glass of wine or mug of brew. Personality plus the best of Southern hospitality. Come as our guest. Leave as our friend! ... more   less
