“Budget for sure!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I stayed here after coming into Entebbe late. The room was reasonably clean but hot and stuffy. We booked a double and ended up with fixed twin beds. The hotel said they didn't have any other rooms. There is no A/C, the shower is a spigot in the bathroom that wets everything and drains from a hole in the floor. I had warm water but my boyfriend did not and our showers in the morning were cold. The power went out and there wasn't a generator or anything, so it really added to the discomfort. It also made getting breakfast a challenge. They charged us a rate higher than what my boyfriend booked, but really nothing to do at that point since they didn't have him settle until the morning when we were ready to go. It was WAY too much money for accommodation that made Motel 8 look like luxury. It is very close to the airport so if you aren't very particular and need to stay reasonably close, then this is the place for you.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your helpful comment and please accept our sincere apologies for the problems encountered.
We believe that by the time you made your booking there was only one room left, a budget twin room.
Our few remaining self-contained budget rooms are certainly small, less equipped but clean and at very low cost for Entebbe standards. However, plans for refurbishing them are underway but as they are very much liked by many of our regular customers and almost always fully booked, we have kept them as they are, for the time being.
Once again very sorry for the inconvenience and please allow us to invite you as a guest next time you come to Entebbe. We shall not disappoint you.

I stayed here for a night on my way to the airport. The motel is in a quiet neighbourhood. Paid $45 including airport transfers and breakfast. Welcoming and warm staff. I came to this place after soending a week at an exoensive Imperial hotel which I wiyld dare not go bacj to. Sunset is highly recommended.

I stayed there in October. The rooms are neat and clean, but the room that i got was very small, barely enough room for two bed. I got a twin room at single rates for one day as there was no other rooms available. Try to avoid room number 9, as it seems to be the smallest one with not even a TV and cupboard. Rooms are neat though. Breakfast spread is OK with breads, eggs on order, jams , honey, fruits fresh, juices etc. Room service is promt. They have very good garden well maintained and I spent some enjoyable time in their grounds which was just lovely. Airport pick up and drop is provided on request

Room Tip: Avoid room number 9. Ask for larger rooms front facing ie facing the front garden

Good sized rooms with en-suite bathrooms and free airport transfer. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Delicious chicken curry! Great breakfast provided even when we had a very early departure to catch our flight home. Would recommend and would stay here again.

We travel to Uganda fairly regularly and after our long flight our first stop is always sunset motel as it is close, quiet, clean and secure! The rooms are modest but neat and the breakfast is wonderful! Lots of variety and plenty of it! A good choice for entebbe where there are lots of over priced hotels!!!!

We had tried to book in at the backpackers (next door) which was full, and very lucky to have stumbled across the Sunset Hotel! The staff was extremely nice and helpful, the rooms were clean, water was hot, wifi was the best we had anywhere in Uganda, the breakfast was lovely.

Also, they give free airport transfers!

Overall, a great value for the money!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Sunset Motel for 13 days in July 2012. Located on a quiet street near the airport with a large garden and a small restaurant it was the perfect place for me to relax for a couple of days. The rooms are clean, have private bathrooms and there is a good WIFI connection all over the hotel. The staff is friendly and professional and I felt very welcome for my entire stay.
I am looking forward to my next visit in the Sunset Motel
