Positive Reviews

Budget friendly.

If you're looking for a motel that fits your budget but still offers a range of amenities, the Sunset Motel is clean and features many amenities that are better than the competition. In addition to inexpensive rooms, free parking and Internet access make the rates more valuable.

Nice employees.

A 24-hour front desk is open to provide service whenever you need it - friendly employees are ready to help when they can and even provide you suggestions regarding the area. If you have any special requests, be sure to let them know prior to arrival so they could best accommodate you.

Clean and comfortable.

The rooms are well-maintained and clean. Current owners made an investment in the property and it shows thanks to room upgrades and amenities that make it competitive with nearby hotels. Plumbing is in good working order and rooms are welcoming.

Negative Reviews

Limited food.

There are limited food options at the motel. A daily continental breakfast is provided, but selection is limited. If you want to eat more substantially, you'll need to visit a nearby restaurant. There is a kitchen available on the property if you choose to purchase groceries.

Busy seasons.

While the motel is inexpensive most of the year, it does get pricier during peak summer months with more travelers. For some, the limited amenities and simple layout isn't worth the increased price during peak months.

Small rooms.

Though clean and welcoming, rooms are a bit on the smaller side - but not completely unusual given the motel ambiance and layout.
