This motel was perfectly accommodating from the start. We arrived an hour before check in time and were allowed to hang out and use the bike wash until the room was ready. We stayed in a queen room, No. 12, and enjoyed several meals outside on the breezy patio in the cool lounge chairs. We loved all of the outdoor...

Once again, I'm blown away by the generosity of a review, your review. We try hard to make our guests feel at home and are very grateful when guests appreciate what we do. We are constantly making improvements as we move along and are glad you made use of our bike wash, sitting areas and helped with our recycling efforts!...

When we first found this place - it was a gamble. It looked like a throwback to yesteryear - it was fantastic!! Since that time, I have stayed there several more. Whenever I am in the Brevard area, this is definitely THE place to stay. The staff is always friendly and accommodating to any needs. The location is a short...

What a great place to stay in Brevard. We stayed for a weekend in the king bedroom. This is one of the most reasonably priced places in a pricey area. The hotel is decorated with 50's decor--great fun to investigate and read. Our room was spotlessly clean--I felt comfortable walking around in my barefeet. The bed was very comfortable and...

I chose the Sunset motel because the chain motels are boring and you can save a few dollars (I saved about $15 for a one night stay). The motel had all I needed and was clean and close to downtown. I was staging for a backpacking trip leaving early the next morning. The downtown Brevard area is very close and...

This old-fashioned motel capitalizes on its retro look, is clean and in a convenient location walking distance to downtown Brevard. The rooms are small, but the bed was comfortable. The room had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The young man at the desk told me that if I wanted my room made up in the morning, I should call...

While this is not a 5-star hotel in the purest of sense of the definition (aka it's not the Ritz) for what the hotel offers, it deserves an excellent rating. This retro hotel is extremely clean, convenient to downtown Brevard, and offers a very nice return to the past where you can drive up to your room with your car,...

We arrived to this cool 1950's themed motel. Check in was easy. The decor is wonderful, but the room was smelly, the bed was very squeaky, and mushy. It felt more like a super 8, and should be priced accordingly.

Thank Vivian H
SunsetOwner, Owner at Sunset Motel, responded to this review

We are glad to hear you had an easy check-in and thought the decor was wonderful but were upset you felt like you were in a low-priced chain. Every bed should be a new firm Sealy Euro-top so I'm concerned that we missed a bed and will look immediately. Traveler Tip - Always let an innkeeper know (in a kind...

My wife and I stayed in the Sunset Motel yurt on a Friday night when she picked me up from a week at the Wilderness Skills Institute in Brevard. She is not an outdoor person but fell in love with the yurt and all of its attached amenities. After a week of sleeping in a hammock at the WSI, it...

Thank you! We certainly are grateful that you took the time to review our new summer seasonal addition - Our Lotus Belle Glamper. We did, in fact, take time to put all of things in there that I would want since I'm not a "roughing-it" kind of girl myself. Please come back! Lori

Yes it is quirky and cute! Everything was clean and comfortable and room amenities were expected, coffee, toiletries etc. But there is no getting away from the fact that this is an old, refurbished motel so the rooms are small, bathrooms even smaller! We stayed two nights and were told there was no housekeeping service, but they did replace items...

Thank you for taking the time to review The Sunset. We are pleased that you found many important elements satisfactory. I'm sorry you were under the impression we don't provide housekeeping because we do. We provide it by request, not automatically, since 19 out of every 20 guests do not want it. You should have been told at check-in and...
