Our stay in Brevard was so comfortable this time. Our motel room was clean, private and efficient. There was even room to entertain and eat our supper in our room.If you want comfort, this is the place to stay. The rates are very affordable and they respect your privacy. Sunset Motel is a retro experience with newly updated rooms that have not lost their retro charm. We have every intention of returning to Sunset Motel for our future visits to NC.

The Sunset Motel has really turned around to become a very comfortable and easy place to stay. I would certainly stay here again! Microwave, refrigerator & cable are all great amenities and the upscale decor is fun and cheerful!

Room Tip: Room 6 is very well done and looks great!

What fun! I liken this place to a classic car. Many friends who have them say, "It's great, it's nostalgic, it reminds me of when I was young, but there are no cup holders." Although all the renovations are not quite complete I can say that the Sunset was everything I was looking for in a circa 57' motel, with upgrades. If you have to stay in a Hampton, or Holiday Inn, stay there. This place is neither, but it is fun and the bed was unbelievably comfortable. You can't beat the location and everyone we met who worked there were friendly and nice. I always like to look for places like this, especially if we are only spending a night and I am so happy we found this one. We were going to Limestone, Tenn. for Veterans Day Weekend and wanted to get a jump start on Friday. I saw this on Tripadvisor and canceled my reservation at the Hampton and am not disappointed. The place reminded me so much of the travels with my family in the 50's/60's only with a fridge, coffee maker, and flat screen tv. Nope...no "cup holders" but we didn't expect them. We will definately stay here again on our next trip to Brevard, one of our favorite towns. Keep up the good work!

I would love rate this motel higher, but unless you are looking for rustic memories, it just doesn't compare to the value you get at newer hotels. One of the things that appeals to us is the morning breakfast available at a lot of motels. When you add the cost of going out to breakfast to the price of the room, it was really about the same as staying in a newer place.
The room was clean, but everything is worn and dated. Also, very small.
If it was a busy weekend I would be concerned about the noise level with all the cars parked right in front of the rooms, and a busy road right in front. The night we stayed, there were only two other cars.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. While we cannot be all things to all people, we understand your position. For some, "breakfast included" chains are very important, for others, they like to dine in our local breakfast spots and not have that cost rolled into the rate. In the summertime, the rate difference is hefty.

You were correct about the room you stayed in . The items were worn and we apologize that we were unable to offer you one of our updated rooms! The good news is that we have already received one shipment of new furniture with another on the way! We found it hard to do any further renovation because we stayed booked up from April thru November but are now hard at work to complete everything by April 2013. Whether you reconsider us or not, we hope you'll continue to visit Brevard! Thank you again for your candor.

We had stayed at the Sunset Motel under a different staff, it was ok.....We stayed there in mid-October...AAaahhhh...we have found our home away from home!! Friendly, kind, staff & very clean, cute rooms. We had reservation for only 4 days, but we were so unhappy where we were staying, we moved to the Sunset Motel early! This is our annual trip to North Carolina &we will be back!!!!

Wow! Thanks for writing this great review for us. We are happy to hear that you felt right at home. That is certainly our intention. Nowadays, it seems our life experiences get less and less personal and it is our goal to bring that back while you are staying at our little motel. I love to meet all our guests. Everyone that stays with us is bringing us an opportunity and we try to make sure our actions match our words. Look forward to having you back with us again! Lori
