“A bit sketchy, but clean and comfortable”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The motel was a bit sketchy, but it was warm, dry. It was a bit pricey at $68 dollars for what you were getting. It was pretty dated, with a few mystery stains on the carpet, old furniture and lovely yellow bathroom fixtures, but it was clean and the bed was surprisingly comfy. It was kind of noisy. We heard cars pulling up outside later at night, but i don't think there were many people in the motel as we didn't hear anyone next door. There were even ‘garages’ under the motel. No doors, more like cubbyholes for cars, but it put the bike indoors out of the weather. The free WIFI was a bonus for us, as we had to plan our next day's ride. We had no problems with the front desk staff, and no problems with our credit cards after staying here. We never did figure out how to access the ice machine. It looked like you had to knock on the night manager's door to get to it. Overall, not the best place we have stayed, but certainly not the worst.

the walls and door were thin, so we heard the other patrons hacking their cigarettes right outside our door. the door itself was poorly installed, you could see light seep in on 3 side. the shower was small and i hit my eye on its head. there was also some yellow/green corrosion on the soap dish.
the bathroom door was scretchly mended from who knows what. cabinets chipped. bed was a little uncomfortable.
on the plus side, they did have full cable and wireless internet.
it was 68$/night, but i would expect more for that price. a motel 6 would've been the same deal but better maintained.

i stayed 4 nights at this crappy motel,its dirty,smelly,and the door wouldnt even close all the way so bugs come right in but the worst part is 1 week later my bank confirmed 3 fraudulent charges totaling over 1,000$ and it originated at the sunset motel so stay at your own risk i have legal charges against them i will see if they have the guts to admit what they did so i would recommend staying as far away from the sunset motel in north bend wa. as possible.

After reading the less than appealing reviews of the Sunset Motel; we were extremely impressed on the cleanliness of the rooms; sheets and bedspreads were new. Bathrooms were somewhat old but clean. For the money I would strongly recommend the Sunset Motel and will return here next year at this time.
Suggest one ignore the other reviews - I called the new owners twice prior to arriving to let them know I saw the reviews and was quite nervous about staying here. Mike informed me that he and his wife purchased the Sunset in November and it is quiet and clean ---- he is RIGHT.

This motel was absolutely disgusting we only spent the night there and Slept with our clothes on. There were blood stains on the blankets and comforters and the blankets were just plain filthy with stains and probably were not changed for a long time. The motel was a place for smokers to gather. The bathroom is a different story. it smelled, it was old, dirty. There was a huge mosquito in the shower and a whole in the window. There where also a lot of brown stains on the towels and all over the walls of the bathroom. It was the nastiest motel we ever stayed at. Do not stay there unless you value your health the motel is a hazard including the bathroom.

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — bad location, not nearby anything, one night stay, dirty, nasty toilet, talking all night long from other rooms

I ran across this motel on websites of the area, but they don't have a website of their own so I just called. They were very helpful on the phone and I just went with my gut. The motel was OK, clean and quiet, and that was all we needed since we didn't get there until 1 AM and just didn't want any problems. We were up early and out of there and the staff was just as friendly as they had been the night before.
