My brother and I stayed here for one night on a road trip- this is the kind of place we love! Funky, different and locally owned. Our room was comfortable and immaculate and had everything we needed. The decor was awesome! We walked into town to get dinner. Lori the owner personally checked us in and was so friendly and...

My boyfriend and I love staying at the Sunset. We are mountain bikers, but also love being in walking distance of town. I love that the motel and its rooms are not like chain hotels. Each room and trip is unique. We had great communication with the owner, as well.

The Sunset Motel is one of those older, locally-owned motels that has been well maintained and still serves its purpose very well. My room was clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The staff were remarkably friendly and helpful. The plumbing has some character, but so do I. If I ever again need a motel room in Brevard, I will definitely stay at...

Just a great little motel very close to the center of town. Convenient to everything. Everything was perfect. Was there for a weekend of waterfall photography anad can recommend this motel to anyone looking for a comfortable and convenient place to stay.

This place is great. Yes, it really is an old roadside motel with rooms that aren't as large as some of the large chains, but they are very clean, well appointed with a mixture of the nostalgic and today, and comfortable. No, you don't get an institutional-grade free breakfast, but you have a fridge and microwave in the room. The...

We wish there were more motels like this in the USA ! The staff were so welcoming and friendly and treated you like a person not a number. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable, it was good to have a table and chair so we could have our breakfast in comfort. Also to be able to sit outside...

This was a fun place. Funky in a good way. A 50’s or 60’s motif — A cheerful update of a fairly standard roadside motel. We dealt with two different people in the front office, one on checking in and one on another occasion. Both were very friendly and extremely helpful re restaurants, activities, etc. We had an enjoyable extended...

We stayed here for our first visit to Brevard and will definitely be back. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and even included a mini fridge and microwave. Parking was ample and they even included chairs to lounge in just oustide our room. Location was excellent and if it wasn't raining during our stay we...

Our stay at the Sunset for my daughter's wedding booked the majority of the motel. 10 rooms plus the cottage and apartment. We were told when we booked the cottage it was a nice setting to congregate with the big porches. We were thrilled to have all our family together to celebrate this joyful event. However when we arrived I...

For those reading this, I think I need to explain to clarify this outcome - When I asked this wedding party guest to please make sure that if there was going to be any gathering to make sure to keep the noise down because, for the first time in 5 years, my neighbor had complained about a loud long party...

I loved staying at the Sunset Motel. It is outside the hustle and bustle of Brevard, next to the forest. I had a very nice room even with a kitchen corner and a big fridge. The owners respected my wish for a room in the back of the property. The night was very quiet and I was only woken by...
