When traveling, I try to avoid the bland and sterile chains and stay in local mom-and-pops whenever possible, as each one has its own personality and character. If one were to choose one word to describe the Sunset, it is "rustic". The Sunset is quite literally in the middle of nowhere. When it was built it was on the main highway, but Mackinac Trail has long been superceded by I-75 a mile or so to the west and is nothing more than a county road. The Sunset is not a place one would randomly stumble upon; you have to be looking for it! The fact that it is a remnant of the pre-Interstate era adds to its charm. We had the infamous room #6. (No crazy woman.) Both the exterior and interior are something out of the 1950s. All rooms open outside to the parking lot; you can park right in front of your door! The room is not at all fancy; simple and straightforward. We had two beds, refrigerator, television, microwave, coffeemaker- the basics you expect in a motel. Space is used efficiency, so it is a shower and not a tub in the bathroom. The floor is vinyl and not carpet, which makes sense given the rural location. Room was clean and quiet. This is a family run place, mother and son, who stayed up to wait for us (we were the last to check in); they actually called me by my first name, as if we had known each other our entire lives! Nice personal touch. This is a budget motel, and is what I expect from one. Unlike the chain budget places, I did not feel unsafe or worry about drug deals or prostitution going down. I would stay here again.…
This is a great couple that runs the hotel. Very nice rooms. Watch out for the crazy woman in room six that runs out in the dark and tells you how to park your vehicle. She is very dangerous because she runs in between vehicles in the dark and pounds on your window while your vehicle is moving. I think she has brain damage and does not realize what she is doing, but please be careful of her recklessness. Other than the crazy woman and parking near room six, this is a great place to stay.
This place is not really in Sault Set. Marie, but several miles south. It's not just old, it's in pretty bad shape, which I could have overlooked if it were clean, but it was not. There was garbage under the bed and big dust bunnies in the corners. The floor is laminate that is coming up in places, so it's a tripping hazard. The wood toilet seat had a big crack, ready to break any moment. The sheets were threadbare with lots of stains, and there wasn't a light bulb in the outside light, so it was very dark. So many other negative things, but too much to list. We were glad we were only there for a few hours to sleep and then on our way west.
Nice little out of the way place. Quiet and very clean, it's an old motel but you can't beat the rates and the beds are comfortable. Lots of parking and they can accommodate boats as well. There were several bass fishermen there while we were there and we didn't hear anything.
This is a family atmosphere hotel. The rooms are super clean and large. The mattresses are excellent. The free Wi-Fi is excellent and secure. The price is great. Tina and Charlie are the nicest folks. The Sunset Hotel feels like a resort in the north woods.
