We originally had reservations for three nights but after seeing how dirty the rooms were and how rude the staff was, we ended up staying for one night and went to the hotel next door for the other two nights.

We told the owner we would be a late arrival and he had the keys in the room and turned the air conditioner on for us. It was clean and had some nice updates. We were very pleased with the room and the helpfulness of the owner. We will stay there again if we are in the area. Only downfall...

I just needed it to sleep for the night, it is fine if you are not looking for amenities, no wi-fi that I could find so shut off on phone to save battery. I enjoy motels to keep an eye on my equipment, under 50 bucks

We were just looking for an inexpensive place to lay out heads for the night. I checked out a couple different towns and read MANY reviews of different motels before deciding that Sunset Motel was the one that we would try.

It was decided, that with such poor reviews, that no one could possibly stay in business. So, we decided to see for ourselves. I realize that in today’s society, our “needs “are...

Sunset motel is lovely with wonderful views. Beautiful breakfast before going to the Amtrak. Staff at Sunset Motel is the gem with delight manager. Many people like how clean it could be and wish they could stay many days before going to Amtraks nearby to Sunset Motel in Staples.

My group rented three rooms on 9-8-2012. The double room was so filthy that one of the beds actually had a gob of hair in between the sheets. It was disgusting. The other person in the room wouldn't even sleep between the sheets and used his sleeping bag instead. He went to roll up the sleeping bag the next morning...
