“Unattractive but inexpensive & functional”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Adjacent to Hwy #3 on a commercial strip west of town, minimal landscaping. Friendly reception, good rates, large clean rooms, dated facilities & furnishings, good WiFi, lots of TV channels, quiet and comfortable sleep.

Room Tip: Sealed porch eliminates highway noise, so all rooms okay.

Looks a bit rough on the outside but the management was super friendly and our room was perfect for our overnight stay. We had a room with two queen beds. Good bathroom with a clean sink and shower. Clean and quiet.

Sunset was ok for one or two nighta. Nice feature of having seperate room for second bed especially when your travelling with business partner. Continetnal breakfast is really poor. Only provides high fat and high sugar packaged muffins, flavored yogurt and package juice boxes. Not much protein for those who require it. There is no place to eat your breakfast so you need to go back to your room with your breakfast items. Beds are comfy but our room had a smell in one spot of the room. It wasn't over powering. Bathroom needed painting towards ceiling as paint was peeling. Front desk were very friendly. Fairly quiet even though off the main highway.

Room Tip: Rooms behind highway might be quieter but either way it's fairly quiet.

We stayed at the Sunset Motel on our trip from BC to Saskatchewan this year. We have stayed two or three times before. They accept pets (no extra charge), clean room, friendly front desk, small but perfectly acceptable free continental breakfast in the morning, easy parking, very handy location. Has always had what we needed, at an excellent price.

Sometimes your just want a clean room for a one-night stay. Our room was great for just that. The motel is not modern or fancy but the room was all we needed with many extras. This motel represents the opportunity to support a NON-INTERNATIONAL motel chain.

Room Tip: The enclosed walkway in front of the rooms makes for a very quiet stay.

This motel is situated just off the highway 3, at first glance you may be tempted to move on as the outward appearance is quite shabby. However the hotel is very good value for money The rooms are basic but reasonably presented and clean. There is plenty of storage, the beds are comfortable and we were not troubled by noise from the road. The staff are friendly and helpful
The town centre is 5 to 10 mins walk away with shops bars and retaurants , and the fort museum is a few minutes further on.
For a budget priced hotel it is more than adequate for a short stay

This is an older motel, but well maintained and certainly adequate for a night's stay. Walking distance from the downtown area, close to the highway but not noisy. Reasonably priced, good value, and friendly management and staff.
