Very nice small motel. Ideal for economy minded single Traveler. Very small room but very clean and comfortable. Air-conditioned safe parking. Quiet area. No extra frills no Wi-fi no coffee and so on. But well worth the $45 half the price of other hotel in town.

There are only 2 places to stay in Durand and I chose this little place because they had single rooms and didn't charge very much. When I called to reserve (no online booking available- only phone call reservations) I was told they had wifi and the property was non-smoking. The room was very small and dark but clean and cozy.It...

Thank you for your review of 4 stars for Sunset Motel! We have checked into the wi-fi iissue and have fixed the problem. We will certainly look into the items regarding the bed. The mattresses are hotel quality and are built to last, hence they are firm. New pillows have been placed in that unit and extra pillows are available...

I was happy to find a place in this isolated area. It turned out to be quite pleasant. We needed a week for a family emergency and they accommodated that need. The room was very clean and well maintained. The bed was too hard for me so I bought a pad and that helped. I had to request a coffee...

Stayed here over night. Check was friendly and very easy. Reserved the room the night before over the phone. Room was quaint and clean. It was a smaller room, but I had chosen the most basic room available. It did have a fridge and microwave in it. The single room had a full size bed. The price was right and...

Thank you for your nice review on TripAdvisor. I will personally check out the coffee pots to make sure they are all working properly. The cupboard is provided as a convenience for travelers who have their own dishware and utensils. We will furnish plastic utensils upon request.

A quaint little old fashioned motel about 30 minutes west of Flint. If you are a large person it might not be for you. Very clean and quiet and a great rate. Was a perfect place for a one night stay before heading to the airport. A short drive to downtown where they have some nice restaurants.

A small, beautifully kept and extremely reasonable motel just off I-69. We'd intended to stay in Flint, but saw no lodging notices near its several exits. Our room was quite small, but clean and well-equipped, including refrigerator and wi-fi. The grounds were blooming with flowers, adding to overall pleasantness. A family-owned small business run by a friendly couple, perfect for...

The room was spacious with 2 queen beds, microwave and refrig, an ample sized bathroom. our neighbors were mostly middle aged who did not care that there was no...

Clean room, great staff, nothing fancy but great for a good night's sleep. A mom and pop place and they take good care of the place and the people that stay there. I would recommend this over the motel just off I69 and this one is only about 1 mile down the road!
