We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Motel. The room has been renovated and was clean and comfortable. Our check-in was flawless even though I had inadvertently booked for the next night. They were very accommodating with making the change. We will be returning...More

Older style motel on part of the old Route 66 at Moriaty NM. This motel has been renovated and is certainly worth the stay. The room was spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed and good linens. The duvet (quilt) is so warm and comfortable. Pillows...More

We needed an overnight stay and were quite satisfied with our stay. Spotless. Friendly. Parking at the door. Informative staff. Vintage feel. Comfortable. Breakfast choices include fruit, hot or cold cereal, bagels, muffins, boiled egg, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea. Reminded me of childhood travel memoriesMore

Very welcoming and friendly staff, and the owner went out of his way to introduce himself and talk about the motel, the area and where to eat. Good size rooms, completely renovated bathroom, couldn't ask for a nicer stop along Route 66.
