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... More

The people in office are all very nice. The Motel itself is just OK. Pros: Good beds, interesting decor, location, cost. The Cons: thin walls (heard a girl crying her eyes out in the room next to me for several hours), bad coffee, meager toiletries. I suppose you get what you pay for...

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Motel for three nights recently during our visit to Brevard. The 50's style motel has been nicely remodeled and is a good location near downtown.

Recently we stayed here while doing extensive hiking and seeing the waterfalls in the area. The hotel isn't bad from the outside, it's rather unique. We were just very disappointed in our room.

Constructive criticism can be difficult to accept but your review honestly points out a problem I wasn't aware of. We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and please know we will address the mattress issue once we figure out which room you are referring to. Letting us know the room number would be much appreciated. More

The Sunset is a unique experience compared to other chain hotels. Lori has done a fantastic job of taking an old vintage motel and bringing up to standards while maintaining the charm of a 50s era motel. The beds were comfortable and for the price it can't be beat.

Loved the room but for those with dogs be aware the room will not be in the front facing the street. This wasn't a big deal though as there is a nice area to walk your dog(s) in the back where the room was located. We brought out two little mini dachshunds for an overnight trip to see the colors...

We stayed in the Apartment above the office. Loved the old school decor. Avocado green countertops wasn't a miss. All the furniture was well kept up for its age. I really enjoyed our stay here. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Plan ahead, they book out in advance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sunset Motel is a hip, unique 50's roadside motel that has been "retrovated" with modern amenities (Wifi,mini fridge,microwave,coffee maker,blow dryer,flat-screen TV,HBO,Cable). Our little blast-from-the-past is centrally located between DuPont & Pisgah Forests and within walking distance to downtown. Each room is unique and all but one are on ground-level, some with kitchens/kitchenettes and porches with vintage chairs to lounge about or strike up a conversation with other guests over a glass of wine or mug of brew. Personality plus the best of Southern hospitality. Come as our guest. Leave as our friend! ... more   less
