We came up to explore The Land of Waterfalls, and this motel was perfect for what we needed. Clean rooms, private, and central to everywhere we wanted to visit--one direction is downtown Brevard, the other direction takes you to Pisgah National Forest. No complaints!

Great location, space and price. We could walk downtown and enjoy the great restaurants and shopping of Brevard. The space itself was ample for 4 women. My only hesitation in this good review is that others will follow and make it hard for us to get a room but so pleased felt it necessary.

This is a cute little motel with a fun flaire! The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location to downtown Brevard can't be beat. Much more affordable then other "chain" hotels I had priced.

Spent the night in the Seasonal Tent and couldn't have enjoyed it more! It poured rain all night and our tent stayed dry and comfortable. The comfortable bed, air conditioning and sounds of the outdoors were like camping with indoor comforts (i.e. facilities with running hot water). I highly recommend giving it a try!

This motel was perfectly accommodating from the start. We arrived an hour before check in time and were allowed to hang out and use the bike wash until the room was ready. We stayed in a queen room, No. 12, and enjoyed several meals outside on the breezy patio in the cool lounge chairs. We loved all of the outdoor... More

When we first found this place - it was a gamble. It looked like a throwback to yesteryear - it was fantastic!! Since that time, I have stayed there several more.

What a great place to stay in Brevard. We stayed for a weekend in the king bedroom. This is one of the most reasonably priced places in a pricey area. The hotel is decorated with 50's decor--great fun to investigate and read. Our room was spotlessly clean--I felt comfortable walking around in my barefeet. The bed was very comfortable and... More

I chose the Sunset motel because the chain motels are boring and you can save a few dollars (I saved about $15 for a one night stay). The motel had all I needed and was clean and close to downtown. I was staging for a backpacking trip leaving early the next morning. The downtown Brevard area is very close and... More

This old-fashioned motel capitalizes on its retro look, is clean and in a convenient location walking distance to downtown Brevard. The rooms are small, but the bed was comfortable. The room had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The young man at the desk told me that if I wanted my room made up in the morning, I should call... More

While this is not a 5-star hotel in the purest of sense of the definition (aka it's not the Ritz) for what the hotel offers, it deserves an excellent rating. This retro hotel is extremely clean, convenient to downtown Brevard, and offers a very nice return to the past where you can drive up to your room with your car,... 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
