Great place for a great price... After I made my initial reservation for a simple queen room, I was contacted by email informing me that no more of those rooms were available but the queen efficiency was. It was nice to have that communication before we got there. Check in was easy, room was in the back of the hotel....

Thank you for recently recommending our business and for sharing with your positive experience. We will check out the room to find the source of the musty odor and see if we can add some more shelf space in the bathroom you mentioned. Please introduce yourself next time you visit as we would like to extend our appreciation in person.

Thank you very much for your review and we are excited that you have already planned a trip back. FYI, If you would like an option that is more than basic, you can choose our upstairs apartment or out stand-alone cottage on an acre in the back. Both are private and have full kitchens/sitting area/ dining area and private porches....

Took a girls trip to Brevard for an evening and stayed at the too cute Sunset Motel. While it is an old building, the owners have done a fantastic job with the retro remodel. We stayed in a double queen room that was eye catching and clean. The beds were comfortable, no carpet so no worries about a yucky floor!...

The Sunset Motel is a lovely little retro boutique motel in Brevard. I felt transported back in time. The room was comfortable and charming. The beds were nice and the rooms moderate in size. The place was spotless! Would definately stay again.

I loved the old motel experience, the convenience of parking at the room door, a quick trip out to walk the dog, a location near everything, a friendly office person who knows everything. The Sunset works to capture that. Clean enough room though opening the room an industrial cleaning smell greeted us. Equipped with microwave and mini fridge and great...

Quaint, very clean, comfortable bed, sitting area with couch and tv, near downtown Brevard...what's not to like? Not to mention the 50's/60's decor brought back memories of vacations as a child. If the toiletries had been a little nicer, I would have given 5 stars. But hey, I'll just bring my own next time. Would definitely stay here again!

I can't say enough of the wonderful customer service, cleanliness, and quiet calm get away we experienced. We enjoyed a long weekend in Western North Carolina and the Sunset was one of the biggest highlights. Before we even reached home we vowed to visit again and the Sunset is where we will lay our heads. Just moments from a pub,...

We stayed for two nights after New Years and the accommodation was cozy. Since the hotel was built in the 1950's, the room we stayed in was a little on small side but would not deter us from staying again. We have been trying to get into this place since we discovered two years ago and in my opinion was...
