Great staff, clean space, simple but everything you need. I recommend.

Absolutely amazing for the price! Comfortable beds and fun to stay at because it’s different from the chain hotels.

Amazing place. We will stay again. So clean and great service

Nice and very clean! Will certainly stay there again.

Unique quite friendly staff great location convenient

Great price, great service, clean comfortable room, and a perfect location. The renovated old school roadside motel is such a great concept and this place nails it.

I loved everything about the place except the heater and shower. The heater was on when I got there, but it ran all night and by morning it finally got up to 61 degrees in the room. And that would have been a problem if the bed maybe had one more blanket. And it wouldn't have been so bad if the shower produced more water than a light mist, and if it didn't run out of hot water after 10 minutes. After my cold shower, I had to shave with cold water too. I'm lucky I didn't end up with hypothermia. Knowing this going in, I'd still stay there again as I dig it's funkiness - but maybe I'll wait till summer. It's the only motel I have ever seen that has a ceiling fan over the bed. I LOVE that! But not when it's 28 degrees outside.

Truly enjoyed staying in Murphy at the Sunset Motel! Its completely remodeled with up to date modern furnishing and a close walk to downtown. Parking spots at your front door and affordable.

Nice, smaller hotel, 20 rooms or so, close in to a nice little town with very good restaurants. Loved the 50s and 60s style motif. Recently remodeled, with large rooms and beautiful decor. Breakfast basket is a great feature.

This place is all around amazing. seriously I have no complaint other then the bed and pillows kind of sucked lol. just very uncomfortable, but seriously it's 5 min from the casino beautiful scenery and the town murphy is very quaint and nice. sunset motel is a great place to stay.

Thank you for the feedback, we really appreciate it. I am so sorry to hear that the room didn't warm up for you. We have the space heaters in only 3 rooms- the other rooms have wall units. Next time we will make sure to put you in a room with a wall unit! We are so glad you liked our retro theme and really hope to see you again in the future. Sincerely, Sunset Motel
