We loved this place. It's an older motel that has been re-done so the rooms are small but they have a great deal of character and are decorated in a cute way. Our bed was comfortable and as other reviews have stated, they are bike friendly. We were in Brevard so my husband could mountain bike and it was the perfect place to stay. Easy walk into the heart of Brevard for shopping and dinner. Price is very reasonable, free internet, cable. The management and people who work there are very nice. Great place!

Stayed at the Sunset while doing some photography in the area. Staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful. Room was as advertised, clean and comfy and a good value for the $. Planning a return trip to Brevard in the fall and will reserve here again.

We love this place :-) Bike friendly, low key, and all the retro nostalgia you could ask for! We stumbled upon it years ago and have returned every time we visit the area. Staff is always accommodating and friendly, make you feel at home. It is literally like taking a step back in time, you know, when people smiled and actually cared how you felt while traveling....

We visited Brevard in Feb., 2013. The Sunset was closed for the season, but the owner opened up and gave us a room. She was wonderful and offered us a choice of rooms based on my preference for a soft mattress. She showed us 3 rooms, which were all freshly decorated (retro!, which was lovely). We had a comfortable room for a FANTASTIC price, and the location was perfect. We could not have asked for more. I would highly recommend the Sunset. ** We also had a fantastic meal at Marco's.

W had an OK stay at this Inn, my wife was begging to stay at a chain hotel and I think I should have taken her up on it. Our first room assigned to us was ok but no working phone or AC Unit. The second room assigned was upgraded with a little kitchenette, it was nice but the room smelled very musty....the AC smelled like a wet cat in the summer time when turned on. The shower tile had gaps in between the pipes and had to watch so our kids did not get their fingers stuck. The bed sheets had hair on them when we pulled them back, and it look like it took them 3 minutes to clean the room. The owner/operators had someone watch the inn while they were out of town and none of them seemed to care much about our comments.

Room Tip: I thought the cabin's they had were better than the rooms, but they had been booked!

We cannot find anyone fitting the description of this reviewer but sent this person an email via this site and I am awaiting a response. We were unable to locate a room with a kitchenette, no phone & a broken AC unit. As you may be able to tell from my other review responses, we take guest complaints very seriously and I need to know when things are not up to my standards so that I can rectify the situation quickly and fairly. I will report the outcome if I'm allowed to add to this response.

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.
