sunset motel is a nice Mom and Pop motel, nothing fancy but comfortable. The rooms and baths are very clean. The staff is Great very helpful. They have single, double and family units. If you want good value and peace and quiet this is the place to be! You even park your car right in front of your room.

We all appreciate when our guests take the time to review, good and bad! Some have said they won't review because it is getting harder to get in at times so they want to keep us as a secret. Thank you for letting us and others know what you think and I personally hope to see you stop and stay... More

This little motel is a gem and a great value! We were there for the Tall Ship Festival in Erie, but the little drive down US 20 was very pleasant and straight into Erie.

Hello and thank you! We do appreciate your time making a review and your stay with us. How neat that you found us for the Tall Ships because there are a lot of places closer.

We normally stay at chain motels, but as we tried to make reservations in the Cleveland area for a night's stay, realized a huge convention in town had every hotel room booked. We called this little place, and were pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff greeted us and had already stocked our room with extra towels and extra toiletries for our large... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in between driving days on our way from Ky to Upstate NY. I was able to easily reserve and pay for the room over the phone earlier that day. Nice staff!

Extremely inexpensive (like under $50 a night), clean with personable, friendly management. They don't make them like this anymore. Great for fisherman or couples on a budget.

I've stayed at the Sunset motel half a dozen times over the past few years when I go up to Erie County, PA to go steelhead fishing. This is an older motel but it appears all of the rooms have been updated. I have recently stayed in #30 which has two doubles and a twin. It was a great room... More
