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.

Charming town, amazing area for hiking, and the perfect hotel! We loved our stay at the Sunset Motel and the rest of my family is asking to come next time. The gentleman at the front desk was great - friendly and so helpful with recommendations in the area. The room was spotless and we loved the retro feel to the...

The Sunset Motel is a fabulous gem in Brevard! My daughter and I spent 2 nights here for her birthday weekend. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Parking was literally right outside of our door -- which simply added to us feeling very safe here. We can't wait to come back!

We stayed in the cottage, it's old but ok for a place to stay. We were a little disappointed an old mattress and trash on the deck was uninviting, had coffee but no cream, sugar or sweet n low, had to go out to get coffee. Just not impressed with it being the number one in Brevard. Had a hard...

If this is the #1 hotel accommodation in Brevard, go some place else. Our room looked nothing like the pictures - it was dark & depressing. We shared our opinion w/mgmt, so this review will be of no surprise & per their request, we "manned up". The owner is a nice woman but the room, shamefully old and tired, no...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I'm sorry to hear that your stay didn't meet any of your expectations; extremely disappointed to hear that found us lacking in so many ways and that you feel like we are dishonest and are misrepresenting the motel. For that and all of our shortcomings please let me apologize. We will issue...

We had a great overnight stay at Sunset Motel. We loved the retro look. The room was clean and comfortable. We really liked the quilt on the bed - we want one! Lots of amenities included - microwave, fridge, hair dryer, etc. No breakfast, but no big deal. Great value and would definitely recommend.

Tired of the franchised look-alike motels? Try this unique, well-managed, locally owned blast from the past when you're in Brevard. And if it's available, ask for the spacious cabin out back, which is ideal for a gathering of family and friends.

Wow! You wrote us a commercial! Thank you for your kind words. It always makes my staff and I happy when people "get" what we are (and what we are not!). We hope you will stay again! Lori

Working in the airline industry my family and I are able to frequently fly down to visit my niece at the college around the corner from here and this is always our first choice. The rooms are always clean, newly renovated, spacious, and offers plenty of amenities for the great price. We always arrive after the office has closed, but...

Small, 50s style room. Very clean, furniture and bedding was newly refreshed. Nothing fancy, but lots of character. Walking distance to town. I appreciated the hot drink choices provided in the lobby to prepare back in the room.
