We booked our hotel the day of as we had to change our other vacation plans due to weather conditions (we were going to be camping before we booked with Sunset Motel). We stayed in the upstairs apartment which was very nice for the rate. Everything was clean. There was a dining area, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. The only complaint...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this kind review. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves.

Very nice motel clean friendly all you could want in Brevard. Walking distance to downtown Brevard and very quiet. Staff very accommodating and will take care of any issue that might arise. This was our first time here and we will definitely be back. The typical 50s motel but with lots of character and charm. A great place to go...

We are honored by the review you posted about your experience with us. While we are constantly told face to face how much customers enjoy our service, it takes a very special person to proclaim to the online world that they should check us out. You are one of those people and we are very grateful for guests like you!...

The Sunset Motel is an amazing place to stay. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful, and the owner went out of her way to accommodate myself, my business, and my dog!!

We found this cute little motel and loved it. Planned to only stay 2 days but extended to 4 just because we were so comfortable at the Sunset. The room was very clean and spacious.

This motel should be considered a national treasure: It is a 1950's roadside "motel" that was common during that era, but has been totally refurbished, renovated, and updated to 21st century standards. As was the design back then, the rooms are typically small, but even before you walk in, you will notice the attention-to-detail in how they are appointed. Door...

I try to be positive about mom & pop establishments, and usually give them very good reviews. The Sunset Motel, however, was a disappointment. The 50s theme is nice, particularly in the lobby. The room was more "early garage sale" than a good 50s experience. The room was overall clean and the bed was adequate. The bathroom left a lot...
