We loved this retro motel. It was roomy enough and well equipped. Staff was helpful and friendly. We plan to stay there again.our room was quiet even though the hotel was full and we saw some guests with dogs. The recommendation Brian gave us for dinner was outstanding. (Quixote)

We have stayed here once before, but this time took our daughter and grandson. We had 3 adjoining rooms, one with a small kitchen. The kitchen was small, but very well stocked with dishes and utensils. Our grandson loved to be able to run through all the rooms when we were inside because of rain. Great workers there that truly cared to be able to help at check in and when we needed extra coffee and towels ( housekeeping opened the room when my husband locked me out and was sleeping so soundly that he didn’t hear me at the door). We look forward to staying here again!

Wonderful and relaxing place. The rooms are extremely clean and the Owner and Staff are honest, friendly and accommodating. Its an "Old School" style motel in the late 50"s early 60's theme where you park in front of the rooms with an overhang over room entrances with chairs outside your door to relax and chat when you return from your activity. The bathrooms are tile and porcelain and are so clean they shine. You use a real key and drop it in safety box when you leave. The location is very convenient to downtown Brevard. I enjoy it very much and look forward along with my wife to our next visit. Carl B.

We came up for a long weekend during one of the biggest snowstorms in years. The sunset motel was way more than we expected, we started in a regular hotel room with 2 queen beds which was perfect and just want we needed. We have 2 dogs with us and it’s only $20 per pet for your entire stay. As the weather turned and was predicted to get worse we ran into the owners who offered us to stay in the cabin in the back for a small fee which was absolutely amazing and they did not need to do. I would stay here again for sure, we had a kitchen, living room, 2 queen beds a rollaway bed (which we did not need and all the comforts of home). I would highly recommend this motel to anyone it is close to downtown, cute and the owners are amazing!!! We will be back for sure!

This fun little motel was so much nicer than the large chain hotels with no personality. I was traveling with my dog and had a quiet room in the back where she wasn’t nervous with hearing strangers walking by. Accommodating hosts on every level. Location a short walk from downtown. Will definitely stay here again

My wife and I just recently stayed for three nights over Valentine's Day weekend to get out and do some hiking and mountain biking in Brevard, and sunset motel was our obvious choice for this time of year. The price alone is all the reason you might need, but also it's proximity to all of the local dining and small shops. Also an added bonus it's only a 10 minute drive to The Pisgah Forest ranger district to get outdoors and enjoy the area and it's natural beauty. The motel was no frills. You get a fridge, microwave, TV and a hot shower along with clean beds. From what I understand, there are also many improvements in the pipeline for the near future that we will be looking forward to enjoying during future visits. 10 out of 10 if you aren't looking for a resort.

We stayed one night at The Sunset Motel with our two children in a room with two Queen beds and it was perfect! The room was spotless, as was the bathroom. There was a vanity outside of the bathroom with the sink, which made getting in and out for four people, much more manageable. The room was bright and cheerful. The staff in the front office were very friendly and extremely helpful. There’s even a number to text if you have a question, which I did early one morning. I highly recommend this “retro-vated” motel if you want to be near downtown Brevard!

We stayed at the Sunset Motel during a recent getaway. We loved it. It’s very clean and has been nicely updated at some point. They are taking precautions during Covid so there isn’t daily room service but they will give you new towels or sheets if needed and they take the trash. We appreciated all of that. If you are in Brevard this is where you should stay!

Thank you for your review! You mentioned our room service - we've found that most people don't want us in their rooms so we offer optional service but provide you with fresh towels, trash removal and amenity refills daily.

Colorful 1950's exterior, run by gracious, involved, friendly staff. Could not ask for a better experience. Appreciate how beautifully updated room was available to share with our bundle of fur. Sounds of other dogs muted by physical facilities; staff treated us like family. will return any time we are near Brevard in the future.

Had two rooms for one night at this lovely motel and will definitely come back. Rooms are in the "old school" motel style and we really loved the touch with the record player. We listened more to Dolly Parton that evening that we have done in our entire life (not so sure about the Fantastic Four-record though). There is also a back yard with hammocks and a fire pit and the motel is within walking distance to the cozy Brevard downtown.
