My husband and I loved the Sunset Motel. The feel like home staff made it feel as we were home away from home. The location is within walking distance to town, shopping and restaurants. We already have our next trip planned and we will stay at the Sunset Motel.

I loved this hotel and the retro decor. A mid century modern heaven. Clean room, pleasant staff, and a great location for all the outdoor activities in the area. I highly recommend this motel and hope to visit again.

Surprised my wife and took her to Brevard over the weekend. Followed trip adviser and stayed at Sunset Motel. We were very pleased with the accommodations and the owner, Lori, was great. Highly recommend the motel and the city in general to visit. Plenty of good places to eat and shop. Hiking at DuPont Forest was great too. Loved the... More

I went on a girls trip to North Carolina in October 2016. We made a reservation to go rock climbing (first time!) and the company recommended Sunset Motel. Upon pulling up to the motel, I was not feeling very confident. It's very old school. Good news, as we pulled up to the overhang to go into the desk area, there... More

Enjoyed staying in this retro motel. The motel is clean and comfortable rooms - no frills. The staff member who we checked in with was extremely friendly and courteous. The motel is close to Brevard town centre

Close to downtown. 15 minutes from hiking trails and waterfalls. Awesome owner. Clean rooms and it was a nice change from your typical "chain" hotel. Will stay at the exact same place on our next trip to Brevard!

Have stayed here twice now and would definitely recommend to others. No frills but all you need is here as the town and mountains are just steps away.

We chose this place because it looked and sounded nostalgic. Well, nostalgic is fun, but the rooms are not nostalgic. Yes, the rooms are clean, but that's it! They seem to have furnished them from thrift stores, big lots, and good Wills! For $135 with tax, you expect a level of quality, but this is just thrift store cheap! These... More

Thank you for your patronage. Since we are accustomed to receiving praiseworthy comments that pertain to our physical environment, a criticism as harsh as yours is quite surprising. Sorry you do not approve of our physical atmosphere. While no business can please everyone, especially in terms of a subjective area like design, we are sorry that we disappointed you. Lori More

Cool little place with a retro feel. Rooms were clean and "fun" decorated. Convenient location to the main shopping/restaurant areas of Brevard. Staff was helpful and accommodating.

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
