The Sunset Motel --- at the eastern end of Moriarty --- is a classic one-story motel but it has many pleasant surprises. Few motel offices have a De Gas reproduction behind the counter and lovely art in the rooms. This is the only motel I have encountered so far that has usb power in the switch plates in the wall....

Took a chance and picked the Sunset Motel based on the reviews and am very happy to have done that. It reminds me of what a good local motel used to be......clean, friendly and reasonable, staffed and/or owned by people who care about the basics. This room with two double beds was large, somewhat dated but well maintained and very...

Thanks Debbie enjoyed our super clean, quiet room and convenient microwave and fridge. Beds and bedding were comfy. Your cute patio with charcoal or gas grilling was a great option; especially for longer stays. Breakfast options were very good and Starbucks coffee a bonus. Trays provided to take back to your room or eat on the patio.

My wife and son and I stopped here on a drive from Georgia to California. It is exactly what we were looking for--a super cozy and clean little place that was not a rip off. The owner (Debbie) was super nice and the rooms are immaculate. There is some great Mexican chow right down the street. We have always told...

Cute, clean and courteous. What more can I say? The Sunset has an old-time flavor with modern appeal. The desk lady is adorable. I travel a lot and stay in many different hotels and motels. Love this one! If you are in Moriarty and want a good nights sleep at a good price, this is your place. :)

I don't like to think of myself as a hotel snob but I honestly don't stay at these "types" of places very often. I prefer to stay somewhere newer, that I know will likely be clean. These older motels are often a gamble but I saw all of the great reviews so I figured I should give them a try....

We stayed for a sporting event and it was reasonably priced. The mattresses were newer and comfortable. It is definitely an older Motel, however, it is very roomy. I liked the fact that the bathroom was around a wall and hidden from view.

I stayed here the first night in town working a job at Wagon Wheel. I have stayed here before and they have excellent parking for a semi, but breakfast is either non-existant or too late to get started in the morning
