A fun little motel with a great 50's vibe! The owner has renovated it and brought it back to its mid-century roots, but added modern touches. Our room was very spacious with a King sized bed, a sitting area with a sofa, flat screen TV, WiFi, and complete with a green princess phone. The decor was very 50's, and neat...

Thank you! We are happy you enjoyed our King room! We are constantly adding to/reinventing each rooms unique decor to create an inviting retro kitschy environment. We hope to see you again! Lori

Very clean and neat! Reasonable prices. A great place to stay when traveling near the Smoky Mountains or the Blue-ridge Parkway. We would definitely stay there again and have no hesitations about recommending them for a visit.

I choose the Sunset Motel after reading the reviews online....I was not disappointed! Clean, comfy and close to downtown Brevard and other area attractions. The price was just right and I would return again because they allow pets with notice...a perk for me as often I travel with my dog...

The hotel was clean, quirky, clever, artsy, comfortable, and reasonable. The motel has a 50s feel which is very cool. It reminds you that you don't need all that fancy-schmancy stuff to have a great time. I loved it and I highly recommend it to everyone!

Your review sounds like you "get" who we are. Thank you for taking time out to write us this great review. We keep our rates low by keeping costs down and so we will never be the place for hot-tubs or a swimming pool (sorry for admirers of both!). Providing a clean, comfortable, friendly, safe and kitschy environment is our...

When we stayed at the Sunset Motel in Brevard, N.C. earlier this year, we were so impressed with the creativity with which Lori and her staff had decorated this quaint motel! So, when we learned she had entered Sunset Motel in the Fresh Ideas Contest, we wanted to emphasize what a great lil' motel this is and to encourage others...

My husband and I stayed there for one night this week. The small room was NOT fancy but VERY clean. My only issue was the bed. The mattress was great but the box spring or the frame (not sure which one) creaked and popped on every move. So every time one of us rolled over, during the night, the noise...

Hi Tammy, thank you for writing a review! Our apologies for the squeaks and pops! We found that one of the boards supporting the bed was cracked and have replaced it. We hope you will come back and if you ever have an experience, good or bad at The Sunset, please be sure to let me know. Your comfort and...

Motel is a great deal. Loved the Mid Century Modern decor, and rooms were super clean. Just what we were looking for. Brevard is a great town and is so lucky to have the Sunset there. I would definitly stay there again. One minor complaint were the very loud couple in next room who decided to take their argument to...

This old motel is right out of the 50's! We loved being able to park at our front door and not have anyone above or below us. The motel is old, but it has been spiffed up with a 50's theme. The room was very clean and the beds must be new and are super comfy! You can check in...

Stayed two nights and really enjoyed. The room was very clean and loved the decor. Will definitely stay there again when in the area!!! Take in the waterfalls. They were breathtaking. Just wish I could have seen a white squirrel!!

We rented three rooms here in early August, 2014. I looked at all three rooms. Each was neat, clean, with refreshing, artistic decor--clearly the work of an owner who knew her art. The price was reasonable, everything worked, and it had a fun, quirky feel to it. I would highly recommend it.
