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...

The staff was great and we had a wonderful time during our wedding weekend. We rented the cottage out back and our wedding party stayed in the motel. It was a perfect location and it was nice to enjoy each other's company in the back cottage. I would definitely stay again.

While visiting Brevard, we were thrilled to stay at the Sunset Motel. This place is everything it's billed to be. Quaint, clean, quiet and definitely a throwback to motel's of old. The check in process was smooth and the desk manager was very friendly. She offered a few suggestions for food in the area and directions to our Easter Sunday...

This was our second visit to the Sunset Motel. We participate in a bicycle ride, "The Assault on the Carolinas" in Brevard each April, and only discovered this lovely hotel last year. Comfortable beds are a must for us, and the Sunset has them. From the warm welcome at the front office when we arrived, to the comfortable beds, and...

Very clean, nice beds, it's super cute and groovy but nothing makes up for the basics and they have those nailed. Got in at destination an hour early for check In needing a nap badly and they were very nice about making that happen. Asked for a recommendation for dinner, he listened to what we were looking for and then...

We are very glad we offered what you needed! It is very important, as an owner, to listen to guests tell me what they need and want to keep the wheels on the bus! If we are in the service business and don't offer the best service we can, we're not doing our job and great guests like you will...

Not only is this motel unique and conveniently located close to the adorable downtown area, the people who run the place are friendly and helpful. Very helpful. I was a unique case, moving my son to Brevard with a Uhaul truck, a dog, and lots of procedural difficulties and they worked with me and my son to get it worked...

We are pleased you felt cared about because it is the hallmark of our service promise. Our motto "Come as our guest, leave as a friend" is not just words. In my own travels, I feel most comfortable staying in places where I can count on my hosts when unexpected needs crop up, when advice is wanted and where I...

I traval extensively and had the pleasure of hanging out here a couple of days this first weekend in April. Great property and the staff rocks! Very clean and no disappointments. Walking distance to a most awesome downtown with great eats and bars! Will most certainly stay there again!

Hearing that you think my staff "rocks" is music to my ears. They have all proven guest-focused and I am grateful! Look forward to having you back with us! Lori

The owners were very accommodating and willing to help us with anything we need. The cabin in the back is great for a small group getting ready to go into the mountains for the weekend. We will definitely return.

I bring a group of Cyclists here every year for three days and ever time we are pleased. It's the perfect place when you're on a bicycle. My wife and I drive over and stay here as well and it's a treat always.

We stayed at The Sunset Motel the night before a hike thru of the Art Loab Trail. The employees and owners were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room had very comfortable beds, was clean, updated and pleasantly decorated. This was our second visit to the motel and will definitely return on our next trip to enjoy outdoor adventure in Brevard.

Thank you is such a trite phrase but I'll say it anyway. It makes us feel so good when guests enjoy their experience, share themselves with us and come back to see us again! Til' next time....Lori
