Enjoyed staying in this retro motel. The motel is clean and comfortable rooms - no frills. The staff member who we checked in with was extremely friendly and courteous. The motel is close to Brevard town centre

I have not been to this area very much. Needless to say I was not sure where to stay. When I pulled up to this adorable retro motel I was very pleased. The manager and the owner were wonderful, very personable people. The price was reasonable. The room was clean, stocked and pleasant. Great recommendations on food as well.Would definitely...

Close to downtown. 15 minutes from hiking trails and waterfalls. Awesome owner. Clean rooms and it was a nice change from your typical "chain" hotel. Will stay at the exact same place on our next trip to Brevard!

Have stayed here twice now and would definitely recommend to others. No frills but all you need is here as the town and mountains are just steps away. Stayed for end of October weekend and visited the parkway, hiked nearby and ate some great food at Maya's downtown. The street fest was a blast and hope to be back next...

Reviewed 22 October 2016

We chose this place because it looked and sounded nostalgic. Well, nostalgic is fun, but the rooms are not nostalgic. Yes, the rooms are clean, but that's it! They seem to have furnished them from thrift stores, big lots, and good Wills! For $135 with tax, you expect a level of quality, but this is just thrift store cheap! These...

Thank you for your patronage. Since we are accustomed to receiving praiseworthy comments that pertain to our physical environment, a criticism as harsh as yours is quite surprising. Sorry you do not approve of our physical atmosphere. While no business can please everyone, especially in terms of a subjective area like design, we are sorry that we disappointed you. Lori

Cool little place with a retro feel. Rooms were clean and "fun" decorated. Convenient location to the main shopping/restaurant areas of Brevard. Staff was helpful and accommodating. I travel a lot for business and usually stay in brand name places, but since I was just doing a short motorcycle tour through the mountains, I decided to give the SunSet a...

We chose this motel to stay at for two (2) over two brand hotels in town while in the area for a mountain top wedding, because it was quaint, clean and "cute" !!! And, it was pet friendly. We would do it again, if our plans were to bring us to this area. Rooms were clean, comfortable and the staff...

The room was very clean but that was it. Just because a hotel accepts pets does not mean it is pet friendly. Having to sign a paper giving permission for staff to enter room and remove pet if barking, even though crated. My pets generally do not bark but never say never. REMOVE, are you kidding me?? The threatening tone...

SunsetOwner, Owner at Sunset Motel, responded to this review

We are sorry you find our rules "threatening". We didn't design them to be nazi-esque. We designed them to insure that all guests are comfortable (especially in neighboring rooms who complain about the noise) and to minimize the damage caused by bored animals left alone. If a guest leaves a dog alone and it will not stop barking and the...

We only spent one night but we really liked the Sunset. Very convenient location. Everything was well maintained and clean. We were in a queen double so we had plenty of room for the 2 of us and our dog. Would definitely stay there again.
