Friendly staff, great location, unique room decor...well worth a visit! The rooms had all you needed, very clean. It was too cold and wet to sit outside and visit with the neighbors, may be next time !

Cozy, comfortable throwback to the 60s. Spotless room. Friendly, efficient staff goes out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable experience. Will definitely return. Convenient to downtown and all Brevard has to offer. An easy walk downtown.

This hotel was very clean, vintage in a good way with its room decor. The coffee pot was not working but I later realized that it was connected to a plug in that was activated by a switch. The only drawback was there were not that many plugins for charging your devices, although with older kids who were traveling with...

Thank you for sharing your positive thoughts on your stay. We are sorry that you didn't find enough plug-ins for your many chargers. If you come again, ask for an extension cord with multiple outlets. As for the parking lot, we understand it can seem small when we are sold out or for very large vehicles. For future reference, there...

Killer retro motel. It's so convenient to everything in downtown Brevard (walking distance to most places). When I pass by the chain hotels in town, I think, "how boring". Since our daughter will be going to Brevard College next year, we hope to stay here many more times.

We loved the Sunset Motel, with it's completely retro look, from the sign out front, to the lobby, to the rooms, each decorated in their own funky retro way! Located close enough to downtown Brevard to be convenient, yet far enough away to be quiet and relaxed. The owner has really made an effort to bring this beauty back to...

So comforting to stay at. If you have any appreciation for 50's era design, this place will really take you back there. Solid block construction helps to keep the outside noise low for restful sleep. Our room was reasonably sized, the bath crisp, clean and surprisingly sized, again, when you consider the time it was built (1957). Return visits are...

The Sunset Motel offers a fun mix of vintage and repro. Our apartment, which was cozy, clean and comfortable, faced the woods and was the perfect location for our dogs. The staff was great, too. A unique destination, and we plan to return.

SunsetOwner, Owner at Sunset Motel, responded to this review

We are so pleased you liked your little efficiency apartment in the back. These are very popular because of the kitchen and the lawn. Thank you for your appreciation for the staff and location!
