Simple, no frills, but does the job. My husband didn’t care for it, said he felt like we were going to be in a horror film getting hacked up, oh the drama. It’s a cute old roadside motel. Clean, has the basics of what we need, within walking distance to the amazing downtown of Brevard. I would stay here again…without my drama king.

We loved this retro motel. It was roomy enough and well equipped. Staff was helpful and friendly. We plan to stay there again.our room was quiet even though the hotel was full and we saw some guests with dogs. The recommendation Brian gave us for dinner was outstanding. (Quixote)

Sweet little hotel. Not fancy but clean, comfortable, and quiet. I was just in town for a concert so only stayed one night. They have a great outdoor area with hammocks, fire pit, lounging chairs and picnic tables. It would be a great place for a family or group of friends to spend time together. Also, very convenient to town, walking distance to shops and restaurants!

The room was dirty. Stepped in dog poop on arrival. The room smelled like urine. The bed was uncomfortable. There was no staff at the office the entire time. Customer service non existent. The cleaning people circled around my room as I was packing up to go, at 7am . They did not even acknowledge me at all. No “good morning “ nothing. I would never ever stay there again. Disgusting.

The Sunset Motel is a great option for your trip to Asheville/Brevard! It is quiet, cute and off the beaten path in the best way. Just minutes from downtown Brevard, the Sunset Motel is convenient to great food and coffee options and nestled in the mountains. While my room did not have any towels when I first checked in, the staff were quick to provide me some and went above and beyond to ensure the rest of my stay was pleasant. I would definitely stay here again.

This motel is cutely rehabbed and in a great location. BUT BEWARE: hot water may be hard to come by. We were there for an afternoon and two nights and were only able to have one hot shower. Additionally, the rooms have no ventilation and there is NO daily housekeeping at all. Not to mention that things like toilet paper are skimpy. At least the rates are cheap.

Thanks for the review. I am a little surprised. I wish you would have shared while you were here and we could have resolved all your issues. There are instruction for housekeeping on every checkin envelope and in the terms and conditions.

This neat retro hotel caught my eye when looking for a Brevard motel. It has great reviews, so we went for it. The bed was comfy..bathroom pretty small, but we had a little sitting area also. Had issues with the TV, but one of the owners was willing to come check it out and was good with texting me how to fix. Give them a try..pull up to a room and walk right in your room..no slow elevators to wait on!

Perfect relaxing location. Owners are great and the town is friendly. Hiking trails close by. We stayed in the cabin on the grounds. A nice change from Airbnbs. Our dog was welcomed for a one time small fee.

Super clean and cute spot we enjoyed after hiking DuPont and dinner downtown. Nice fridge and enough room for our family of 3 adults. Smoking area out near street we appreciate that effort. Would stay again.
